3 fast takes from the recent week of sports


1. LeBron is gaining on Jordan’s legacy: After witnessing LeBron James and the Lakers bludgeon their way through the gritty western conference, the fact is that LeBron is currently not a great distance away from Jordan’s ghost. The old men on the block will say otherwise, but Lebron is not the identical or same player that lost to a mediocre Dallas Mavericks team in 2012.


2. Josh Allen is not just an elite fantasy player: The young man at the helm of the Buffalo Bills offense brought his showtime skillset to the field on Sunday’s win over the battle-tested Rams. Allen completed around 72% of his passes for a grand total of 311 yards in the air and four touchdown passes. Because of his momentous outing, the Bills improved their record to 3-0 on the season.


3. The MLB will officially alter their regular season schedule from 162 games to 60 games: As a result of the Covid-19 hiatus, league commissioner Rob Manfred came to a consensus with every team owner to diminish the number of regular season games played to 60. On a media scale, the regular season television viewership has substantially increased in the past few months of a sports drought. In other words, the less nine inning snooze fests that are played, the better.
