Any time your immediate competition adds a superstar and you do nothing in response, that’s a loss.

Are the Celtics favorites to beat the Cavaliers in a seven-game series? That’s a negative. But the series will be infinitely more competitive than last year’s five-game dispatch of Boston in the conference finals. And if you’re a Cleveland team playing for a championship, the last thing you want to do is spend energy beating a conference foe.

They’re going to need that energy to avoid getting swept by the Warriors, anyway.

Because Ball is the talk of the basketball world. From his quirky jumper to the shoes he wears, everyone eats up Ball content. (Our traffic confirms this). Ball’s second game against the Celtics was the first sellout in Summer League’s history. Plus, he’s a Laker. That sells anywhere.

We still don’t know what the right price is for the Ball family. Maybe Big Baller Brand is still seeking a partnership. Maybe Ball will settle for a bigger endorsement deal. Maybe it’s still $1 billion for the family. It could still be outrageous.

But as this process has continues, Ball’s popularity has only continued to rise. Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas will have to at least take a peak to see if the Ball family’s ask is in the ballpark. It would be irresponsible not to.

Many are overreacting to Ball’s summer league performances, but that actually gives the companies even more reason to invest in Ball. If he drives this much interest Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike during Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China Summer League, the intensity will only increase in the regular season. If the Lakers make the playoffs — a humongous, very unlikely if this year — Staples Center may explode.

NFL Combine 2017: Dalvin Cook states case as top RB with Le’Veon Bell comparisons

LSU’s Leonard Fournette gets most of the attention when discussing the top running backs in the 2017 NFL Draft class.

But there are some who believe Florida State’s Dalvin Cook should be the first running back taken in April’s draft.

The Jets discussed, but never seriously, considered moving Revis to safety, Bowles confirmed, and that was something Revis was willing to do.

“Obviously, the business side of it … had a lot to do with it as well,” Bowles said of the team’s decision to cut Revis. “Trying to move a guy and project a guy from corner to safety at that kind of salary is kind of tough.”

Bowles, though, insists giving Revis $39 million in guaranteed money before the 2015 season was a sound decision.

“I think it was a good idea,” Bowles said. “I think it was a good call at the time. Obviously, he didn’t play as well this year. Neither did anybody else (on the Jets). But he’s a good football player. And that doesn’t bother me at all.”

“The standard is the standard,” Quinn told Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys co-host Rick Neuheisel and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “If he decides he wants to do it, he’s got to be all in to do it. I don’t want Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike to make special circumstances for anyone in any way.”

Both players have made jokes at the Browns expense in the last month, but Watson said Friday his quip while receiving the Davey O’Brien Award in Fort Worth, Texas, was not meant to disparage the Browns.
