    Of course he's smart; DID YOU KNOW HE WAS A ROCKET SCIENTIST??????

    Hell of a play. Even if he's somewhat cooked as a pure pass rusher Watt is still making plays.

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    Yeah, obviously haven't seen a ton of this class yet but it feels like a potentially great draft. I'm really high on Cunningham, there is so much potential there, he reminds me a bit of Luka with his size/creativity. I think all four of the guys I listed (which were just the top four prospects...

    Cade to Black: 2021 NBA Draft Thread

    With college basketball kicking off, it's time to get this thread going. 1. Cade Cunningham - Guard - 6'8" - Oklahoma State Cunningham seems to be the consensus number one and for good reason, Cunningham has tremendous size and playmaking ability, in addition to being an explosive athlete and...

    Maradona dies from cardiac arrest at 60

    No I meant Ronaldinho. While Ronaldo was certainly fat, to me his peak ended due to injury. Ronaldinho liked to party, got out of shape and was pretty much done by the time he turned 30.

    NFL HOF class of 2021 - who should be in?

    Woodson had 98 INTS + Forced Fumbles in his career. How does that compare to other DBs? Rod Woodson: 91 Ronnie Lott: 79 Charles Tillman: 78 Ed Reed: 75 Aeneas Williams: 63 Deion Sanders: 63 Ty Law: 60 Champ Bailey: 59 Troy Polamalu: 46 Darrelle Revis: 33 I won't go as far to say that Woodson...

    Maradona dies from cardiac arrest at 60

    Yeah, other people on here will now more about that era than me, but I think Serie A morphing into a retirement league/Juventus monarchy has changed the way people view past accomplishments, when the league was on top of the world in the 80s/90s. The Milan team actually was not good until the...

    Americans Abroad, 2020-21: The Kids Are Alright

    1-1 draw, Salzburg scores on a terrible VAR decision and Richards scores on a set piece in extra time to salvage a point.

    NFL HOF class of 2021 - who should be in?

    It's crazy how similar Willis and Kuechly's careers are. Kuechly 118 G 107 AV 7x Pro Bowl 5x All Pro 2012 DROY Willis 112 G 106 AV 7x Pro Bowl 5x All Pro 2007 DROY Kuechly does have a DPOY award, which Willis does not. I think Kuechly was better against the pass and Willis was better against...

    Maradona dies from cardiac arrest at 60

    To answer the question posed in your second paragraph, it would have to be accepted that Maradona's commitment to work would be different if he was born in 1990 instead of 1960. Would he have become a crazy, coke-fueled nightmare if he had been brought up in an era that valued professionalism to...

    Maradona dies from cardiac arrest at 60

    Nobody was a better representation of the South American game than Maradona, all the of the good and all of the bad. There will never be a player like that today; the game is too professional and organized, but Maradona's insanity was not what made him unique, his insane talent that consistently...

    NBA Offseason

    I think Simmons is clearly the best player in that group and shouldn't be that hard to build around. The reason this is only a conversation is because Philly hasn't been able to get him into the ideal situation where he plays with all shooters. Siakam and Brown would probably be the next best...

    NBA Offseason

    Agree, although I think peak Melo was talented enough for the role, he just didn't have the drive or motivation the way the best players do to reach his full potential. Few NBA players of the last 25 years have been as gifted as Melo, but he didn't have the same kind of drive that the LeBron...

    NBA Offseason

    Don't let KOC hear you say that! Ingram is a weird player for me. I don't understand how someone with his length/athleticism can be so bad at defense, unless they truly just don't give a shit. Which is not the player who is ever going to win something.

    NFL HOF class of 2021 - who should be in?

    Boseli predates my football-watching days, but what is so compelling about his case? Six seasons, three-time All-Pro, career AV of 73...was he really just so dominant at his peak that he should get in? Matt Light played twice as long, has a career AV of 123, and did make one All-Pro team in...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    The thing with Gasol is that the Lakers are not going to need him to play 30+ minutes in a playoff game; they are always going to be at their best with Davis at the 5. What they need is a guy who can soak up regular season minutes and bang bodies so that Davis doesn't have to wrestle with Steven...

    Draft Retrospectives: What Have We Learned?

    Anyone can nail a Doncic take...nailing Shake Milton, that takes skill. Simmons path in the NBA has been so strange pretty much everyone is going to be wrong in some way.
