KJ talks about what’s at stake in the Patriots-Bills game, Cam Newton’s ranking among current NFL starters, the horrid NFC East, the Jimmy Garoppolo trade and Julian Edelman’s injury.
I can guarantee you one thing: this NBA offseason is sure to be unique. It might not possess the same level of drama that your typical NBA offseason has come to habituate, but it will certainly have some things we’ve never seen before. There’s an air of tentativeness hanging over the NBA offseason. Not only are teams posturing for the much more appealing free agent class of 2021, but many are adjusting on the fly as the cap for the 2020-21 season takes a hit due to the coronavirus. These and other factors may lead to an NBA offseason without much movement, but I do have one crazy idea for the Washington Wizards. They should trade for Blake Griffin.
With the start of NBA free agency still somewhat ambiguous, it’s hard to really get a sense for what it will look like in the era of COVID-19. Will the ongoing pandemic pair with an unappetizing free agent class to result in a less than robust market? Will we see something less than the dramatics we’ve become accustomed to in years past?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the Patriots could use a receiver. New England currently ranks dead last in the NFL in yards from the wide receiver position. Their leading receiver over the last three games, Damiere Byrd, already has more yards this season than he did in his first three NFL seasons combined. It doesn’t help that an aging Julian Edelman is once again struggling with drops this season. It wouldn’t be a stretch to call the Patriots desperate for any help in their passing game at this point. One name to watch as the NFL trade deadline approaches is John Ross.
Back in May, as it became clear the COVID-19 pandemic was not going away anytime soon, businesses across the country were given a choice: Risk the spread of a deadly virus or lose money. As you might expect from a society falling apart at the seams, the latter was the prevailing choice. Some businesses have been able to operate safely without posing a significant threat to their employees or customers. Others haven’t.
