I can think of countless reasons to watch hockey games that don't involve the Caps. I don't have much incentive to watch pro basketball outside of Wizards games.

He plays the right way; draw two and let your teammates play 4 on 3.. Move your feet, move the ball. It's a fun game to play when you've got guys who understand that.

I like Lavar. He's an arrogant sob but he's an extremely dedicated father and will have gotten all 3 sons into a D1 school. 2/3 will very likely be NBA players. Question his methods, but you can't question results. His son is already a brand, all while being a quiet and seemingly likeable kid.

He's the hype man, and he's done a hell of a job.

Also, he knows Lebron is gone after this season (as does everyone else) so he wants to bolt sooner rather than later.

He wants to be the man yet names Spurs as 1 of the 4. Why doesn't he just stay in Cleveland post-Bron era and be the man there.

Kyrie is abandoning a sinking ship.

It wasn't even a troll lol. Draymond just reacted like McGregor was wearing his jersey and didn't know the context of why he was wearing the CJ Watson jersey.

Hm, Portland just traded Allen Crabbe to Brooklyn for nothing.

Brandon Knight out for the year.

Arron Afflalo to Orlando.

draymond's too much of a moron to realize that the warriors haven't even worn those jerseys since he's been on the team

but then again, i think 98% of their fanbase has no idea they ever wore those jerseys

Draymond's ego fell into that trap so easily. I was bummed his response was so yawnfest.

Send a message via MSN to Morozov
They probably talk about it and they're a group of successful black American athletes just like Mayweather so it wouldn't be all that surprising that they support and identify with him more than Conor.

I guess that leaves Zaza as the lone Warrior who will be rooting for McGregor.
