The NBA is approximately one third through its 2018-2019 season – and since this comes up every year – I figured I would get out ahead of the noise and check up on which conference has the right to claim supremacy so far.
It’s getting painful for this Patriots die hard fan, and it’s time to start getting brutally honest. I held out saying this following the Miami game, because I liked what I saw there. Sure, the Miami Miracle was horrible, but Brady played his best game of the season, Gronk looked like his old self, and Edelman was making great plays. After today, I cannot defend this team for what we expect it to be: a Super Bowl contender; that alone means something is wrong, and at 9-5, assuring we will not win at least 12 games for the first time since 2009, it’s officially time to say something is wrong.
Welcome back to Who to Watch! Just last night we witnessed a GREAT football game between the Chargers and Chiefs, as Los Angles came back to win 29-28. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James faced off for the final time, the Celtics winning streak continued, and the Raptors DESTROYED Golden State… WITHOUT KAWHI. In the NFL, the Patriots lost in the final seconds to Miami after a miracle succession of laterals and inferior defense (WHY WAS GRONK OUT THERE!?), the Steelers lost (again), and the Cowboys won (again).
The Patriots and Steelers face off this Sunday in what will surely be another classic game between the two, but other good games across the NBA and NFL are on the docket for the next week.
