The Yankees, Lakers and Cowboys all finding young stars is great for sports
The Yankees, Cowboys and Lakers are three of the biggest professional sports franchise brands in the world, and for the last several years they haven’t been winning and had no marketable stars. Suddenly, all three of these blue-chip franchises have found young stars to carry their them forward.
The Yankees’ Aaron Judge has arguably become the face of baseball as a rookie. Last season, the Cowboys discovered the rookie duo of Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott, and Lonzo Ball has shattered Summer League attendance records as the new face of the Lakers. All will only get better.
Sports is better when these franchises are relevant, and now each has found their stars. And in today’s sports world you can’t be relevant without them.
“Lonzo and the Lakers. This will be the least they’ll be talked about for a decade.”
Teams should go get stars and figure out the chemistry later
The NBA offseason has seen the Rockets join the ranks of the superteams when they traded for Chris Paul. Multiple reports they are closing in on a trade for Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony.
Detractors of Houston’s offseason moves have said that Chris Paul and James Harden won’t be able to play together because they are both ball dominant. They also question how Carmelo Anthony will fit into the mix.
Colin disagrees with the critics and thinks Rockets GM Daryl Morey has done the right thing by getting the stars to Houston, with the intention of figuring the chemistry out later. It’s impossible to win in the NBA without stars, it’s not impossible to figure out chemistry.
“If you can get them in Houston, you figure the rest out later.”
