The Lakers keep winning, and keep winning on the road. If Lebron keeps this up, pretty soon he’s going to start giving away his underwear to fans, in addition to his shoes. Not only are they winning, they are having fun and enjoying playing with each other. This week it gets real with a showdown against the Bucks, and the following week a Xmas Day showdown with the Clippers. Get your popcorn ready! Those Laker haters are going to have to block Laker fans on Twitter if the Lakers keep winning on the road.
As for the Clippers, they should have been able to beat a team like the Bulls, even when Kawhi sits out. Then there’s Paul George, who felt the need to bring up what happened when he left Indiana to the media earlier in the week. PG13 sure talks a lot for a guy who doesn’t say much. One thing we can say about him though is that he clearly doesn’t like pressure or accountability. That’s exactly why he’s a Clipper and not a a Laker, and exactly why he has never wanted to play with Lebron.
RIP to the Rams playoff hopes. I don’t know what the hell happened but the Rams played that game with the intensity of a preseason game. The Cowboys have been losing games left and right until Sunday. At least Sean McVay should get coach of the year for allowing us to score all the garbage time fantasy points. I’m also done with Jared Goff. I just can’t defend him anymore for his play. McVay has gone from genius to lunatic. He’s allowing Goff to throw 51 times, instead of giving the ball to Todd Gurley. If everything is perfect with the protection, Goff is solid. If not, he’s pretty mediocre. It’s been a season of squandered opportunities that have killed their playoff hopes.
Meanwhile, the Chargers got bombed by the Vikings. Melvin Gordon went from potentially getting $10 million a year to getting benched. This man is losing money faster than Lehman Brothers. Even Phil Rivers realizes that he’s making more turnovers than Martha Stewart, and that his future is in doubt. It’s no wonder this team can’t sell tickets in their brand new stadium next year. There is already nobody that cares about them, they stink, and they don’t have any young players to get excited about. Again, 80% Vikings fans during a Charger home game, and even the Vikings fans know where the Bolts belong.
Elsewhere around Week 15, I’m not even sure Jesus Christ could lead the Browns to the playoffs. The Bears figure if they don’t make the playoffs, then a kicker can’t actually lose them a playoff game. Now that the Bills have actually clinched a playoff spot, Bills mafia will probably be breaking even more tables at tailgates. Most teams prepare for the Bengals by just taking a nap. However, the Patriots actually needed to tape their opponents.
It’s time for a Dodger cold stove update. That’s right people. As usual Andrew Friedman is 100% full of crap telling you he expects big changes. The only change this guy makes is upgrading his Windows software. The Dodgers could have outbid the Yankees for Gerrit Cole, or even acquired Corey Kluber for pennies on the dollar, but Friedman overvalued his prospects like he usually does. I’m not sure why anybody is surprised. He spent another $10 million on a reliever coming off a terrible season as well. Typical Dodger blueprint for “success”.
As for the Angels, signing Antony Rendon is mice and all, but it’s like buying a Ferrari when you need to fix your roof. The Halos desperately need pitching, or they aren’t making the playoffs. Last I checked, Rendon can’t pitch. With Cole, Kluber, and now MadBum off the market, there’s not many more places they can go to get it. Not that the Dodgers were desperate for Rendon, but the notion that it was the Hollywood lifestyle that kept him from LA is ridiculous. I’m pretty sure Clayton Kershaw isn’t living the Hollywood lifestyle.
