The Spurs’ dynasty is done
The Spurs were completely dismantled by the Rockets, 126-99, in Game 1 of their second round series, and Colin thinks San Antonio’s days as a title contender are done.
Last night, they looked old, slow, and overmatched against the up-tempo Rockets. Even at their best, they were never a good watch. Now they’re boring and don’t have a roster that has evolved with the NBA’s three-ball heavy style of play.
Besides Kawhi Leonard, they have a core roster of big name 30-somethings on the downside of their careers.
He isn’t saying the Spurs are a poorly run organization, far from it. But, winning games and competing for titles are two different things. The Spurs, in their current form, won’t be winning anymore titles.
“It’s over. They don’t want to admit it, but the big dynasty is over.”
Nick Saban deserves more than $8 million per year
Today, it was reported that Nick Saban’s annually salary is $8 million per year. Predictably, the pearl clutching outrage at the idea of paying a college coach that much money has already begun. Colin doesn’t think it’s enough.
College football coaches are like NFL quarterbacks. You can’t win titles, today, without them. Colin pointed out that if a university had the opportunity to buy some type of “device” that cost $8 million, but would guarantee a championship level program and also produce avalanches of revenue, they would jump at the chance.
Oregon spent a zillion dollars on new facilities, but they’re irrelevant since Chip Kelly left.
There is a device. It’s called a Nick Saban or a Jim Harbaugh. Schools should pay whatever they need to in order to get one.
“The college football coach is the NFL quarterback.”
