It’s the day we as fans wait for all winter …the day pitchers and catchers report. It is the first sign that the long winter’s end is in sight and that spring is on it’s way and hope springs eternal after your team’s not so great performance from last season. Everyone starts the same all records are 0-0 and every fan thinks their team will be the team to beat. Get ready for baseball 2019…enjoy the season !
Whatever happened to ..we win as a team we lose as a team? If anyone had any question as to how things are working out in LA for Lebron James …take a look in the picture. In the midst of 42 point blow out to the Indiana Pacers Lebron saw it necessary to distance himself from the disaster that was this game. But this isn’t a good look for Lebron. When you are pushing behind the scenes to get a complete roster reshape by trading everyone away to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis this scene doesn’t help, head coach Luke Walton is on the hot seat so job security is going to be a issue and the Lakers are on the outside looking in for the playoffs right now. Lebron hasn’t missed the playoffs since his rookie year in Cleveland …
So you mean to tell me the are another dysfunctional franchise other than the New York Knicks ? …Wow!
It remains to be seen if the trade of Kristpas Porzingis actually in the long run nets them Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant but one thing is certain…this trade made the Knicks players in the 2019 free agent market. That in it self is big news because in recent years the Knick couldn’t get free agents to come to New York City they couldn’t even get some free agents to even have a sit down with them (LaMarcus Aldridge). Again it remains to be seen how things pan out will the Knicks hit it big on the free agent market or will they whiff and if they whiff will they sign second tier free agents to max contracts?. One thing for sure …there is no doubt they have put themselves in position to at long last be real players at up grading their roster.
The fact that the Patriots won the Super Bowl again was sickening enough but when your best player isn’t being used it begs the question …What is going on with Todd Gurley ? What were the Rams saving him for ? This is the Super Bowl there is no tomorrow Gurley says he was healthy , “I know there’s been a lot of concern about my knee but I really am fine,” he said. So what was the problem? That is something for the Rams to think about all off season.
