The tease of Rey being of a histroic blood line was intriguing and the fan base theorized about it forever after TFA. The reveal was a slap in the face to the fans imo (I am not invested enough in Star Wars to care). I am hoping that that line was referring to Palpatine (he was the one laughing at the end). The story needs a big bad. Kylo Ren is too boring and is running along the same arc as any other villain.

He did a spectacular job during LeBron's first 3 years. I'm not sure what acquisitions by him were that bad in all honesty... He was dealt a hand and shaped a roster to win a title.

He traded for Smith, Shumpert and Mozgov. Those 3 guys that were essential to their run to the finals in 2015. Then traded for Frye in 2016, who is credited with changing the culture that helped win the 2016 finals (He also was on fire in the 2016 playoff run when he got minutes). He also traded for Kyle Korver who contributed to create one of the best offenses in NBA history in 2017. 

No matter what, he stil had to create the deals. Can also credit him for signings like Jefferson (I kow LBJ definitely is credited for getting good veteran free agents to come to the Cavs).

I also did 8am Boxing. Great way to start a day with a challenging workout. I would finish up then head to the pool area to cool down and relax. You do have to buy gloves, wrist wraps, etc. though. Just an FYI.

I took Beer and Wine... online. Easiest class that challenges you to try different alcohol you may have never consumed, so you broaden your palette.

Coaching Football was cool. Lot of different coaches come in including Urban (this was 2016) but your year end playbook project is kind of a pain.

Sport for the Spectator was mentioned above. The entire class was 10 main sports topics that you'd write and discuss about. It's easy to do and not too challenging. We covered the Donaghy scandal in the NBA as well as UNC's student-athlete education scandal. I actually enjoyed going to class.

Also... don't fall for Chocolate Science, its apparently a lot of chemistry and not as much about eating sweets.

If you haven't done your science requirements, try and get Health and Nutrition online and take it with a group. One of the easier science classes I've taken.

Cap is a popular pick (and mine) but I can also see him going back in time and staying there with Peggy. Tony is likely but I can also see him surviving, actually retiring, and taking on a Fury role as head of the Avengers/SHIELD program - possibly losing Pepper in the process. He does become head of SHIELD in the comics and it could make sense as Sam Jackson isn't the youngest guy. 

Hawkeye's arc makes sense for him to survive and get his family back. Can see Widow dying. Her future movie is supposed to be a prequel anyways. Nebula dying attempting to kill Thanos once and for all or wielding the gauntlet to save the universe makes sense to me too. I think Thor is safe. His story line the last 2 movies (Ragnarok and IW) have reinvigorated the character and can see him heading up he next phase alongside Black Panther and Spidey.

They'll still need some help on the wings which could be addressed in FA. Maybe having Zion would make the Cavs a little more attractive than normal. They will have the money to spend then.

Comment 26 Mar 2019

agreed. After JR this offseason, they will be shedding a TON of money after next year as well. Knight, Clarkson, and TT as well as Delly will be off the books. That is A LOT. Not a terrible position to be in. Especially if they want to bring Clarkson back or extend him. Could also see them bring TT back for leadership (on a reasonably lower contract)

Oh man you're taking 18 year old boys to Vegas? All they're gonna think about for the next 3 years is when they can return and do everything they can't do now

Brunch at the Hard Rock is solid. Get the bottomless mimosas. I know it's a standard place, but man it is great.
