Tony Dungy made the headlines recently after he said that he wouldn't have drafted Michael Sam because of the media circus that follows behinds him. That didn't fit well with the many Michael Sam supporters. Dungy later backed up his statements saying that Sam deserves to be in the NFL but he just wouldn't have drafted because of the media attention he is receiving. I have nothing negative to say about Dungy's comments because as a fan, I'm already tired of hearing about Sam being a "Gay Football Player". I truly don't care what his sexual preference is but the media seems to think I and every other fan cares. Sam coming out expressing his sexuality was very courageous but don't force it down my throat. At this point. all we really care about is can he play football. Everything else really doesn't matter.
As the hectic free agency period slows down, the Kevin Love sweepstakes seems to get bigger by the day. Right now, the Cavs are supposedly the front runners and all the rumors indicate that Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett are the ones that will be shopped for Love, but I don't see that happening for 2 reasons. One, because that would be stupid to give away your future, and two, the Timberwolves are going to want much more than two young players for Love who averaged 26 points and 12 boards last season.
Whether it be this season through a trade or next summer through free agency, K.Love will not be with the Timeberwolves. In order for a team to aqcurie Love through a trade, I think they will have to give up the house. I think this will be similar to when the Knicks traded 7 players and a few picks for Melo.
If I had to make an educated guess on where he might land, I would say the Lakers. He is from Santa Monica California, he attended UCLA, and he grew up a Lakers fan. Then you add the fact that Kobe is on his way out the door and the Lakers need a new face of the franchise. Love being a big man would be perfect, especially when you factor in the Lakers history of Big Men. This is only a guess though.
EA Sports marketing team hit it on the nose with this video. Player ratings are already anticipated but the rookie player reactions are going to make you wonder how bad or how good their rating is. Unfortunately, Clowney rating on twitter, he has to be the highest rated rookie on the game with an 83 overall. I think that might be a little too high, but he was the #1 pick so it's understandable. I choose not to look at the other ratings just because I don't want to spoil the fun, I challenge everyone else to do the same thing.
