Dirk and Duncan, two franchise icons. They played over 100 times, won 6 total championships, and have 3 MVPs between them. Their once great rivalry is fitting to their equally successful careers.
Seeing as last night was the conclusion of the ‘first half’ of the 2016 MLB season, I examined each club’s record and pretended as if it were Opening Day. Much to my surprise, there weren’t too many surprises. The Cubs and Giants are really good. The Braves and Reds are really bad. Like any year, some teams have overachieved, some have underachieved. Bartolo Colon continues to be Bartolo Colon, with one extra homer. Here’s my summation of 2016’s MLB script, enjoy.
So few players spend their entire career with one organization. The longer their career lasts, the more likely it becomes time for a change. For Dirk, that change has all been able to take place within the organization.
Good things do not always happen to those who wait, but when it comes to 41, there is no better example of loyalty paying off.
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.
