Is it better to have Love and lost or to never have Love at all?

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor threw some shade on Kevin Love during a radio interview…

“I think maybe he got away with some stuff not playing defense on our team, I’m not sure that’s how it’s going to work in Cleveland,” … “I would guess they’re going to ask him to play more defense, and he’s foul-prone.”

“I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him, because I think he’s going to be the third player on the team,” … “I don’t think he’s going to get a lot of credit if they do really well. I think he’ll get blame if they don’t do well. He’s around a couple guys that are awful good.”

Netflix Picks: Schooled, The Price of College Sports

Laying around the house with nothing else to do, but cycle through the never ending supply of shows and movies on Netflix? We got you covered. Here’s a little guidance on something dope that you’d enjoy

SchooledNet

Synopsis: “A documentary that examines how college sports in America became a billion dollar enterprise built on the backs of its unpaid athletes.”

With College Football season coming up this is a great film to check out. ‘Schooled’ explores well the contradictions of the so-called amateurism, presenting a less than flattering story on the historical origins of the idea of a pure system where athletes play for the love of the game only.

The debate on whether athletes should be compensated continues to rage on this film gives an honest look on the landscape of the NCAA, with interviews from many popular sports figures and intellectuals you will definitely come away from this film having learned something no matter what side of the argument you are on.
