Good for Karl-Anthony Towns! KAT made a statement in the 3-point event. 29? Dang! He says he is the best-shooting big man in NBA history. Is he wrong? The guy is shooting better than 40 percent from downtown on the season. He was a 13-1 longshot in the 3-point event, primarily because of stereotypes about big men. Keep in mind he won the SKILLS competition six years ago. KAT is now just the second NBA player to have won two different individual events on All-Star weekend, joining Steph Curry.
Very happy for KAT, particularly in view of the COVID tragedies in his family.
I was ok with the dunk thing. Toppa was smooth.
Lebron says he can’t rule out a return to the Cavs at some point. Great. More drama.
Saddened by the passing of Charley Taylor. He was one of the most versatile players in NFL history, having been an All-Pro running back before he became an All-Pro receiver. Taylor was one of the great gentlemen in league history as well. So long, 42.
Make no mistake, Dan Snyder is going to be forced to sell that franchise. When? Bet the under.
The NFL says it will not investigate VoyeurGate in Dallas. I never anticipated a full-blown league investigation. But if the Cowboys think this is just going to go away, they are mistaken. Lotsa questions about who knew what when.
The Jolley Roger is 63. His current deal runs through the 2024 season. He has previously said that this contract is his last rodeo, but he is now considering a possible extension.
I’m still processing the Brian Flores hiring in Pittsburgh. Interesting at least, since Pittsburgh is the home of the Rooney Rule. The Steelers have always walked the walk, and I respect them for that.
CFP? There’s only one number you have to remember, and that’s FOUR.
