Jaguars owner Shad Khan on his team clinching a playoff berth for the first time since 2007: I’ve been through life when I was a laughingstock, whatever business I was in auto parts or what have you. You have to stay with it. Success comes. It’s a story of perseverance.
The point is that the Warriors can be without the second-best player in the NFL Jerseys Wholesale league, an offensive and defensive juggernaut, and still be the best team. Beyond their two megastars, Klay Thompson is also one of the best shooters and defenders in the league, Draymond Green can do everything, rookie Jordan Bell is quickly becoming a mini-Draymond, and they always have Andre Iguodala to dust off his old bones and make game-winning plays.
Teams like the Rockets can take the notion of threes or layups so far that they outshoot everyone in the league, including the Warriors. They’ve bastardized the offensive idea that Golden State was built on.
But the Rockets can’t match the Warriors on defense, even if they have improved. Even worse, the Warriors can still outshoot them if it comes down to it. Trading points with the Warriors is a surefire way to lose.
No. 3 seed — Jaguars (10-4): First place, AFC South. Jacksonville clinched its first playoff berth in 10 seasons by beating Houston. The Jaguars would love to try to wrap up the division title next week before the Week 17 rematch with the Titans. What’s left: at SF, at TEN
No. 4 seed — Chiefs (8-6): First place, AFC West. Kansas City stayed Cheap Hockey Jerseys
here by beating second-place Los Angeles at home on Saturday. The Chiefs are back on track to lock up the division with one more win or one more loss by both the Raiders and the Chargers, but it would take a lot to move up from No. 4. What’s left: vs. MIA, at DEN
The Golden State Warriors are like Wolverine from the Marvel Universe. Wolverine is one of the most popular characters in comics and one of the most complex. That also makes him one of the most cloned, copied, and bastardized characters.
There are loads of Wolverines. He has at least 15 children, many who share his same abilities, with the bad ones taking his worst behaviors to the extreme. Some are granted more claws; others are supposedly more ruthless. He has just as many cousins and even a handful of clones.
His DNA is taken and he’s cloned a lot because, as his catchphrase goes, I’m the best there is at what I do. And what I do isn’t very nice. And when you have the best at something, it’s hard not to duplicate or bastardize it.
