Politicizing the occasion wasn’t the intent and for the most part, Obama, out of respect for the current administration, has tried to keep a low profile.
Ultimately, Curry and the Warriors decided as a team that, instead of celebrating their championship in the White House, they would visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., with local students from Durant’s hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland.
With Brees and Garoppolo going nowhere, Bradford should be right behind Cousins and ahead of his replacement starting teammate, Case Keenum, as a desired veteran QB solution. Health is always the concern; otherwise, Bradford has proved he can be productive in different systems.
Whitehead is a tackling machine who makes a ton of plays against the pass, too. Although he could help Patricia on the weak side, it’s more likely he finds a new home. Watch out for the Giants.
Robey-Coleman has been good covering the slot during his time in Buffalo and Los Angeles. He’s a solid assignment defender who also plays the run well. He’s one of the best relative bargains in free agency.
Of course, the other side of the argument is if you can get LeBron, you always get LeBron. He’s one of the greatest players ever, and he is still producing at an MVP level.
However, the Warriors are in the unique position to pass on James if they so choose because they just don’t need him to win championships. That statement in itself shows just how powerful they have become.
There are the on-court and off-court issues, and then there’s this: come on, man. This whole thing happening? Just, no. Stop it. James will have options when he enters free agency this summer, but this plan seems too far-fetched, even by NBA standards.
James values rings as much as anyone, so sure, maybe he will keep it all on the table and take every single call. But this feels much more like a power move to force the hand of the Cavs, Lakers or any other team looking to sign him this offseason.
