As for Bulletin Board Material if the Pats needed that top fie them up like the media has fired it up they are in the wrong line of business. Playing for the right to represent the ACF and win the "Fight 4 Lamar" should be motivation enough. I know how the media loves Bill, Tom and Bob but in Steelers Nation that just who they are...Bill, Tom and Bob and let's go fishing someday...see you Sunday!
Golden State Warriors point forward Draymond Green was quoted as saying the Warriors/Cavs is a rivalry. Well Draymond you play them just twice a year and they have played twice in the Finals back to back. Lebron James is right its not a rivalry yet as the real NBA Rivalries were Lakers/C's back in the 80s and Bulls/Pistons back in the late 80s and early 90s. The one common thread here is they played each other for more than two seasons and played one another a lot.
Now looking ahead are these the two teams that should be in the 2K17 NBA Finals you bet. Shall they go round 3 Draymond might be onto something but at this present moment these two are not a ready to be served in still simmering in the crock pot!
P.S. that 126-91 Warriors beat down of the Cavs was just 1 of 82 there is no other way to look at it...
