Not since Moses Malone became a 76er in 1982, has a league MVP-candidate left their own team to join a proven title contender. With all the excitement and assumed success Durant is bringing to Oakland, he is also taking all of his talent and fame away from Oklahoma City. Which has expectantly left many Oklahoma City fans upset.
His best years, 1996-2010 (hell of a long time), are mostly unrivaled in MLB history. He batted .358 when he was 20, he’s had 200 hits and/or 50 home runs five times, and finished top-10 in MVP voting 10 Times! Find me a better run than that.
While Johnny’s football career is almost surely over, hopefully his aspirations for success do not die with it. Johnny needs to know that just because he will never be the football player he dreamed of, he should not stop dreaming. He could have a long, prosperous life ahead of him, but he cannot do that from behind bars. He is no longer Johnny Football. He is just Johnny, and Johnny needs to turn it around.
You might feel like Stephen Curry is the leagues humble superstar, but you would be wrong. Steph is cocky and talented and he knows it. You might think he is an underdog, but he expects to be here. He just wont say it. Steph has all the confidence in the world. You can see it every time he runs down the court while his shot is still in the air or when he pumps up the crowd after making a big 3. You might think Steph is cute and nice, but he is as big and bad as point guards come and it is fun to watch.
Why the documentary that swept the nation reminds me of how far behind we really are.
LeBron has been a below average jump shooter, an immature celebrity and lost 4 times in the NBA finals. And he never disappoints. Why LeBron will never stop being the King
Just remember, Baylor did not happen because of football, or Art Briles, or a few bad guys on the team. Baylor happened because the administration deemed winning the Big 12 more important than upholding the values of the university. Baylor happened because it took practically 5 years for any of us to recognize that Baylor did not care about it’s students. Title IX is the nationally accepted minimum a university should do in being attentive to it’s female student’s safety needs. Baylor hardly made its implementation into their university practices a part of their to-do list, much less a priority. This should make every school take a look into the mirror. Hopefully they do not see anything as ugly as what has been transpiring in Waco, Texas.
He can dribble, rebound, shoot, pass and defend at an elite level. Can he manage a roster and a salary cap too?
You get everything you want in this year’s Super Bowl. Thank the NFL.
Nick Saban. Alabama Football. They look comfortable sitting on the throne.
