The NBA is blowing it by not televising the All-Star draft
The NBA is changing up the All-Star selection process this year by allowing two captains (Steph Curry and LeBron James) pick their teams by choosing available all-stars. The draft is intriguing to many fans, and Colin thinks the NBA – which is the best major sports league in terms of creating stoylines – is making a huge mistake by not televising the draft.
The league is trying to avoid the potentially awkward situation of publicly damaging some of the fragile egos when one player is inevitably picked over another, or last, but Colin believes that’s why it would be must see TV for fans. The NBA usually gets it right, but they botched this layup.
Why would anyone want the Jags in the Super Bowl over the Patriots?
Everyone claims to love the underdog, but every time a true Cinderella team makes a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, the viewership numbers always nosedive. Even though people claim to be sick of watching powerhouse schools like Duke, they always watch.
In this year’s NFL Playoffs, the Jacksonville Jaguars are everybody’s favorite underdog after taking down the Steelers at home, and in the echo chamber of social media, many are hoping for the fairytale run to continue with a win over the evil empire Patriots. Colin disagrees, and can’t understand why anyone would want to see Blake Bortles over the greatness of Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
