I'm a huge Hockey fan. But, the team dynamics still fundamentally applies to all sports teams. A team's General manager has to identify who is the
team's core is and build around them. A GM drafts or signs "Team-first" players over a "Me-first" player who wants to pad his stats. It surprises
an opponent to face a team with so many weapons/sources of scoring. With a team that is dependent on a dominate player, you figure out a way to shut
I'm rooting for the Spurs, but I'm keeping an eye on the Heat/Spurs Final because I don't like Chris Bosh. He set back the Toronto Raptors a few
season by tanking his last year in Toronto. He could've gave Brian Coangleos(sic), Raptors' GM at the time, a heads up that he wasn't going to
re-sign with the Raptors. I believe he faked an injury at the tail end of the season to ride out the final days of his contract. With Bosh not
re-signing in Toronto, he made it extremely hard to get U.S. players to play in Canada. Bosh said(paraphasing here) his head wasn't clear in Toronto
and eyed playing in the U.S. He got delusions of grandeur thinking he would be the man and get endorsement deals in the U.S. Didn't quite work out
for him, instead he became LeBron's stooge. Bosh is not a guy that you can build a team around because he couldn't win any championship on his own.
He had to take the easy way out to Miami and ride on Lebron and Dewayne's coattails.
Spurs in 6 games. LA Kings in 5.
