The OKC Big 3 is headed for a divorce
The Thunder have struggled to start the year, and while some things need time to determine if they’re a success or failure, Colin thinks it’s safe to call this experiment a failure less than half way through the first season.
Colin compared the situation to a divorce, where the marriage is typically over long before the final papers are signed. There can be good days, and great moments, but it becomes clear it’s not working.
The Thunder won last night, but the sooner GM Sam Presti can face the embarrassment of owning up to the failure, he can tear this thing down and start over. Hopefully, he realizes it before the trade deadline, so he can get something by trading Paul George.
The Steelers pass the eye test, but New England is better by the numbers
The Steelers and Patriots play this weekend, in what could be a preview of the AFC Championship Game, and even though New England played terribly in a loss to the Dolphins, they’re still favorites against a Pittsburgh team riding an 8-game win streak.
The line caught many by surprise, because not only are the Steelers on fire, they have stars at every position. As Colin says, Vegas has no agenda, and when you look at the most of the key offensive and team statistics, New England has the advantage in most categories.
The Steelers pass the eye test, but when you dig deeper, it’s not hard to see why the Patriots are favored this week, and will be again in the playoffs.
