Daly Dose #130 Memorial Day and the things we miss

This week on the Daly Dose we are looking forward to the holiday weekend! With Memorial Day being a time for remembrance we recall a few things that we miss in the world of sports. From the big hits in football, to the days before instant replay, to real sports news there are a number of things that have us feeling nostalgic.

Who is the best team in Major League Baseball right now? It isn’t the Chicago Cubs, that’s for sure.

We have some fake news coming out of the NFL that is being spun as a controversy.

Remember when the Big 12 Conference was going to take the world of college football by storm? That seems a like really long time ago.

A brief look at the NBA Lottery and incoming draft class, and those NBA playoffs have not been easy to watch.

Finally, with the LA Coliseum now being sponsored by United Airlines, we have the Top 5 slogans for the new LA United Coliseum!

This week on the Daly Dose, Clint answers a Twitter question about the United Airlines controversy, and shares a story about his own air travel back from vacation.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney passed away last week, and wee look at one of his draft classes that might be the best ever in NFL history. The 2017 NFL Draft is coming next week and there are a few teams that could take a QB despite already having a franchise QB on their roster.

We give an NBA Playoff preview, as we look at which series are more likely to go seven games, which one is most likely to have an upset, and which one is likely to have a team lose their voices from whining.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue also undergoing concussion protocol

The Cleveland Cavaliers are down 2-0 in the NBA Finals to the defending champion Golden State Warriors and now the injuries are beginning to mount.

First, it was Cleveland forward Kevin Love suffering a concussion in Game 2, after taking an elbow to the head. Love’s status for Game 3 is still in question as he will be required to enter the NBA’s concussion protocol before he will be cleared to return.

Love took an inadvertent elbow to the head from Warriors forward Harrison Barnes in the second quarter of the Game 2 blow-out loss.

And now it seems that the Cavs would also like head coach Tyronn Lue to undergo concussion testing after seeing his game plan in the first two games.

The Cavaliers have been outscored 214 to 166 in the first two games and Lue has failed to make much in the way of adjustments.

Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert summed up the thinking. “Look, we all thought that the only reason that we lost last season in six games was because of all the injuries. We lost Kevin, Kyrie Irving was out, and Iman Schumpert was not 100 percent. But we have been completely healthy this year until now. The only difference is we got rid of head coach David Blatt and gave the job to Lue. Yet at this point we are going to lose in four games. And I’m going to be honest, they should probably call it after three.”

LeBron James agreed. “I just think we need to make sure that Coach Lue is completely healthy. When I put this team together  I selected the players that I thought would help me win. But that hasn’t happened. And someone has to be held responsible. Because it isn’t going to be me.”

Calls to Davis Blatt for comment were met with uproarious laughter.
