The New England Patriots took a lot of heat when they selected former Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round (No. 62 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. The Pats already had the greatest quarterback (and player) in the history of the NFL on their roster, and they were coming off of a loss to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, which exposed several weaknesses. Now, almost three years later, the decision appeared to be yet another brilliant draft day move by the greatest coach in NFL history, Bill Belichick.
Kyrie Irving is the point guard for the world champions. Whether that's the round world or the flat world is not exactly clear. "Out of all the podcast, that's what you took out of it, the flat Earth?" Irving asked reporters who tried after the Eastern Conference practice on Saturday to pin him down on whether he genuinely believes it.
The deal would send Boogie to New Orleans in exchange for Buddy Hield and a bunch of first-round picks. UPDATE: The trade is happening. DeMarcus Cousins is reportedly heading to the Pelicans for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, and multiple draft picks.
