Stick to Sports? Not Anymore, not with the SERIOUS Concerns We Have

colin-kaepernick

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to acknowledge the passing of the phrase “stick to sports.”

It has now passed on into the great abyss.

Of course, to be honest with ourselves, we must first acknowledge

a.) that “stick to sports” only existed as a phrase conveniently leaving off the second, more important, self-defining portion of the expressed sentiment.

b.) that it was impossible for stick to sports to ever really exist in the first place.

It’s the official start of basketball talking season as most NBA teams held their individual Media Days on Monday. It’s the first Chicago Bulls Media Day without Derrick Rose since 2007, as the point guard was traded to the New York Knicks in June. At the time, many thought the Bulls got fleeced on that deal, but it was still easy to understand why Chicago was looking to part ways with the controversial, injury prone locally produced star.

Exactly one year ago today, the hometown hero pretty much punched his ticket out of town when he made very strange, self-defeating remarks at Chicago Bulls Media Day.

“The main thing is that we have three alphas. There will be three alphas on the team,” newly minted Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo told reporters today. He was referring to himself, Jimmy Butler and just announced signing Dwyane Wade. 

“Just trying to mesh together and try to make sure we are doing the best thing for the team,” Rondo said before later contradicting himself. The NBA leader in assists last season was asked who the big dog was going to be.  “Obviously it’s Jimmy’s team,” he responded.

There are trade deadline days some years that are extremely boring and painful. Then there was the 2014 NBA Trade deadline day, which made those kind of deadline days that I just described look exciting and interesting. Since then Turner left the Pacers for the Boston Celtics, and today he announced his departure for the Portland Trail Blazers. That means Evan Turner has now been on four different rosters in just two years and four months.

Joakim Noah Derrick Rose

It’s no mystery why the New York Knicks have just one playoff series win this century. If there’s one thing the Knicks do well, and do very consistently, it’s OVERPAY for big name players who are way past their prime. It’s like Owner James Dolan bases his entire roster on just one trait- individual brand name awareness.

Enter Chicago Bulls Center Joakim Noah, who is joining the Knicks for $18 million per season, according to multiple sources.
