With LeBron in L.A., Lakers/Warriors will be the biggest rivalry in American sports
Colin has followed the bread crumb trail LeBron is leaving, and is more convinced than ever that it leads to the Lakers. He thinks despite the easier path to the Finals with the Cavs, the potential to win a title with his third teams would elevate his legacy.
Paul George is likely headed to the Lakers, and reports say Russell Westbrook would be interested in joining James and George to form a formidable Big 3 to pair with Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, both whom would have another year of seasoning.
If this does happen, the Lakers and Warriors would battle for the Western Conference title – the de facto NBA Finals – for the foreseeable. Forget all the other rivalries, this would become the preeminent rivalry in American pro sports.
“Lakers/Warriors will become the biggest rivalry in American sports.”
The Giants haven’t moved on from Eli Manning because they’re prisoner to the memories
Eli Manning looked bad for the second week in a row in a listless performance against the Lions. Colin thinks Eli has been clearly eroding for years, and now it’s undeniable that he’s washed.
Instead of setting themselves up to transition on from Manning, they have stuck with him because of the memories they have from two incredible Super Bowl runs. The Giants are like many people on Facebook who prefer to look at “the good old days”, rather than dealing with the reality that’s in front of them.
Now they’re facing a lost season and have a lengthy rebuild because they have no plan how to replace him.
