SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Wiggins is one of the most talented 2 way players in the league. He'll always deliver great defense and near double digit rebounds but he's also a guy with a switch when it comes to offense. If he misses 3 or 4 early shots he'll stop shooting. If he hits early pretty much guaranteed 20 plus points and near 60 percent from the field.

He is the key on this team. He plays almost the entire game and always is matched up against the other teams' superstar player. Even scoring only 10 or 12 he takes a huge load off of others. Check the finals stats: top 5 in points, steals, rebounds, blocks, and minutes. Don't know if there is a more underrated NBA player.

Here's an interesting stat: Tatum is a career 0.456 shooter. In this series Wiggins has him at 0.373. Tatum was 0.462 against Miami.

Commanders Fine Jack Del Rio $100,000 for Calling January 6 a 'Dust-Up'

Imagine being a Washington player.

The guy has zero credibility and will receive zero respect from players. Guess he must have plans to replacing the entire defense with Proud Boys.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Finals Round

Yeah, Luka needs to getYeah, Luka needs to get in better shape in better shape

Kind of hate bangin' on the guy .. he's one of the best 5 players in the league. He's essentially the "Big Fundamental" at whatever position he plays. But a little conditioning and he would be even better. Scary thought.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Finals Round

Still it was a season for Dallas that makes a future championship a genuine near-future possibility.

Luka has to attend the Mac Jones fatty tissue conversion camp.

Absolutely. Luka is a big guy with a body type that can never be transformed into a Giannis or Mailman type physique but he needs to work on conditioning. That was the key against the Warriors - they simply wore him out. And he needs to be able to play max minutes at top level. A few more athletic players who can eat minutes would also help. Fully expect the Mavs organization will address needs and the team will be even better next year.

Greg Norman: LIV and Let LIV

For some nothing else matters but money.

"He only ordered 1 journalist dismembered .. that I know of", "He only tried to overthrow the government of 1 country after losing an election", and on and on.

Reality is anyone who aligns themselves with people like these end up paying for it dearly at some point.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Jacksonville has actually been to a conference championship this century

Remember that game vividly. Lost the game because the coaching couldn't figure out a way of stopping the opponent running the same play 8 or 9 times during a single key possession. Thought they would grow and become stronger as they had a solid albeit superstar void lineup but they faded instead.

They were good enough to win a Superbowl that year otherwise.
