Possible NBA superteam being built in Cleveland?

With the crushing loss in this year’s NBA finals, it seems only fitting that the Cavaliers would go out immediately after and look to add another superstar like Paul George or Jimmy Butler. If they are going to be able to compete with them next year they are going to have to do exactly what they did and stack that lineup with as many threats as possible. Right now the Cavaliers are pretty lackluster in comparison to the Warriors when you see KD, Curry, Klay, Draymond, and Iggy I guess. So for them to add a threat, hopefully Butler rather than Paul George, would enable them to actually win more than one measly fucking game in the NBA finals. As good as Lebron is, and I believe he is one of the top 5 players to ever play the game already, he cannot carry a team in the league in today’s day and age. No one can. Curry has always had help. The Spurs are the Spurs. Dirk had help and as did Kobe. Its just the way it goes, and yes they have Kyrie Irving but Kevin Love is washed up and a wildly inconsistent shooter to consider one of your “Big 3”. So you’re left with JR who seems to show up when he wants to and I cant help but root for you regardless and Tristan Thompson. Thompson can be an absolute beast down low so as a big man I dont mind him at the 5. With all of these thoughts swirling I can’t stop myself from picturing the scoring frenzy that could occur with a starting lineup of; Kyrie Irving, JR Smith, Jimmy Butler, LeBron James, and Tristan Thompson…damn. Maybe over/under for round 4 in the 2018 NBA Finals of 280? 285? It could be very interesting to see how the Cavaliers make their trades but I know K Love is gone and a can’t help but hope the door hits him on the way out. Hopefully next they can work on not having fucking Deron Williams and Richard Jefferson out there in the 4th quarter of a game 5, win or go home game. Just a crazy fucking thought I had. This could be the super team that LeBron needs to finally win another title because as we all know and as he stated he’s never really played for a super team, not even in Miami! I know! I thought that was a superteam too but apparently not. Not even Cleveland was considered one. Now I hate the Warriors even more for inventing the damn super teams! But now King James can make a run and finally get back the title, there is hope in this world. I don’t know about you but I’m fired up to see what next for the NBA. -( . )


NBA & NHL championships coinciding coincidence? I think not.

One of the biggest storylines in the last decade for basketball has been Lebron James. As a youngin coming in the league he had to do what he could to prove himself and now as a solidified legend in this game he goes for his 2nd title against the Warriors. This is Round 3, the big battle, and taking a backseat to this monstrous event was the NHL playoffs and the Stanley Cup. As a series of home wins, the Cup was fought back and forth and the Penguins were able to turn the Predators into their prey and take the ‘ship in 6 games. This makes it back to back Stanley Cup winning seasons for the Penguins which is exceptionally rare in hockey. So much it has only happened 4 times in the last 30 years. The Red Wings in ’97 & ’98, the Pens again in ’91 & ’92 and the Oilers in ’87 & ’88. Now oddly enough these years happen to also be years when the NBA champion has won back to back titles…interesting…

And to add fire to the ridiculously high flames of the whole ‘JORDAN VS BRON’ debate two of these back to back champions that coincided with the NHL were led by none other than the OG himself. IS this just destiny? fate? whatever you want to call it is is a very big coincidence and I am not putting anyting past the best player in the fucking league right now. Only 1 team in history has come back from a 3-1 deficit in the finals and only one team has ever given up a 3-1 lead to lose the finals and both are playing on the court tonight, just saying. Cavs in 7. -( . )

Aaron Rodgers hooks it up for an entire class and cancels their final

tweet

Source– Want to get out of your final exam? Ask Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That’s what a student named Peyton Meyer of Janesville, Iowa, did, and Rodgers obliged.  The class made a deal with its teacher, Laura Roberts, who is a Rodgers fan, that a retweet from the quarterback would cancel the final in a sports literature class made up of high school juniors and seniors in the Janesville Consolidated School District.

“We were talking about the news in sports like we do every day, and she mentioned that a student at another school tweeted at Kobe Bryant. Meyer told ESPN. “We asked if we could do the same, and we know she loves Aaron, so that’s why we picked him.”

A high school senior in Indiana got Bryant to retweet his request Thursday, getting his class out of a final exam.

Another great product of the internet and twitter is apparently the ability to effect kid’s grades in school. Pretty sure this is a bad image for the school and the education system there if a teacher is willing to cancel a final exam because an athlete retweeted a tweet but as a Green Bay fan and a mediocre student I appreciate the hell out of this lady. She is such a big Rodgers fan that she agreed to cancel a final exam if the class could get a retweet which is incredible. And Rodgers, being the beast that he is, decided to bless the kids and give a shoutout to cancel their final. Though this is just a bullshit high school Sports Literature course so I’m sure the final would have been mostly common sense and general knowledge anyways, pretty great on these kids that they dont even have to think about it though. Sidenote: Interesting precedent this sets as to where this stops. It’s up to the teachers (the smart ones) to put an end to this before people start expecting to get things that they want based on responses from social media. These kids snuck away with on an enamored fan/teacher but if this catches on I have no hope for America. -( . )
