How I View the Warriors After Losing

Had the Golden State Warriors repeated against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Draymond Green would have been named MVP of The Finals. That’s especially crazy, when you consider that he got suspended for a game, a game in which they lost. Green plays out of position, bigger than he really is, and it’s amazing. I’m not too fond…

NFL 2016: Early NFC North Thoughts

Purple People Eaters Minnesota had a very good season and proved me right by winning the NFC North. Adrian Peterson looked great after sitting out the year before. I really don’t have any reason to believe that he’ll slow down, drastically at least. Laquon Treadwell is the first round pick that is expected to make…
