Nothing wrong with Zaza Pachulia falling on Westbrook


first_imgCowboys need to dump Dez Dez Bryant is coming off a year where he failed to catch 70 balls, or surpass 1,000 yards receiving, but he’ll still command a $12.5 million salary in 2018 with a $16.5 million cap hit. Bryant and the Cowboys are headed for an inevitable showdown where he’ll likely either be forced to take a pay cut or get cut. Not surprisingly, Bryant has been vocally opposed to playing at a discount.Today in The Herd, Colin discussed the potentially messy brewing divorce, and thinks it’s time for Dallas to sever ties with Bryant and move on. He pointed out that in addition to Dez’s dramatic drop in production, he has also reportedly struggled to co-exist with Dak Prescott. That’s not gonna work. Nothing wrong with Zaza Pachulia falling on Westbrook Social media launched into a collective pearl-clutching outrage when Golden State’s ZaZa Pachulia landed on Russell Westbrook’s legs. In postgame comments, Westbrook was furious and said Pachulia tried to injure him.Colin thinks the outrage is a product of an NBA that has become overly soft and pointed out that Michael Jordan was regularly subjected to far worse punishment at the hands of the Pistons and Knicks during his career. Pachulia is no different than Laimbeer or Charles Oakley, except fans romanticize their careers and the toughness of the era. Guests:Steven Jackson – 14-year NBA veteran is in-studio to explain why Zaza Pachulia is a dirty player; why the NBA is soft; and his take on college players getting paid.Eric Dickerson – FS1 Analyst and NFL Hall of Famer is in-studio talking his NFL Combine experience and his take on the NCAA college basketball scandal.T.J. Houshmandzadeh – Former All-Pro wide receiver is in-studio talking college hoops scandal; paying college athletes; and why it’s hard for poor college athletes to refuse money.last_img read more
