You can't hate the Blue Devils. They're Dick Vitale's favorite team.

Oh yes you can. And Dick only really likes Duke because he's old and has trouble following the quickness of the game. He prefers to watch a team that scores 50% of it's points from the free throw line where he can figure out what is happening out there.

Most top college coaches have certain styles of play and systems they depend on. They recruit players they think will fit those systems and work hard on developing their skills to achieve success.

The NBA is a different animal. It's largely about being able to mix and manage egos. I would suggest that a college coach from a one and done factory would be a better fit. These folks don't really develop talent to any extent and do focus most of their time getting players to simply mesh together.

To a certain extent Stevens is an exception to this. But as mentioned above he didn't have to deal with Irving and now has the luxury of a selfless on court leader with Walker.

Would have been more fitting driving backwards and to the extreme right.

Man was I wrong about the Celtics drafting Tatum. I had figured he was essentially a duplicate of Hayward and thought they would be better off drafting a complementary player with better defensive skills. He has really turned into one of the league's premier 2 way players.

Hoping Bouwmeester is ok. Earlier last year it looked like he was done but sure rediscovered his game and has been a big part of the Blues recent success.

As for Garrett perhaps he has learned a lesson and plays within the bounds of the game. He has generational level talent and I'd hate to see him become the next Burfict.

Jordan is a career scumbag .. and model member of his political party.

Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl 0x36

How is he still blacklisted?

Old backwards rich white owners want it that way.

Personally I think we should blacklist the owners and whitelist Kaep.

Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl 0x36

I don't know whether Tom Brady should retire or not, but I definitely know that Richard Sherman should

Really? Find me a corner who can cover man to man for 15 seconds with Mahomes dropping 20 yards back to let receivers get open ... there aren't any in today's NFL. The 49ers defensive scheme is to press receivers at the line and get pressure on the QB. They did this well until Mahomes decided to take matters into his own hands. Not another QB in the league who can drop 20 yards back from scrimmage and hit receivers on the fly 55 yards away on the run. KC's offense is much better across the board when Mahomes is doing his thing on a broken play than they are executing the called play.

The Chiefs certainly represented the Great State of Kansas well Yes, weller than probably any other team from Kansas in history.

Watched the highlights on YouTube. Zion is going to be a load if he can continue hitting the 3. Guys don't like to get in on him, because he's 285 and all muscle, and he'll tear pretty much any defender apart in a physical game. Unstoppable.

the Chiefs wouldn't see Mostert until partway through the second quarter

Mostert WAS part of a running back by committee in SF. He took on a primary role in the conference championship only because of injuries to the other RBs.

Hoping there is someone out there in AB's circle that can help him find direction.

Binge watched the Aaron Hernandez documentary over the past 2 nights. Certainly painted his whole situation as a result of a perfect storm with the effects of CTE, loss of a role model at a critical time, getting in with the wrong crowd, and concerns about sexuality. He was clearly a personality who urgently needed strong mentorship and received none once his father passed. Ultimately he made one bad choice after another with those closest to him, including the Hurricanes and Patriots organizations, doing nothing to help him even though it was clearly evident he was in dire need.
