ESPN’s Michael Wilbon joined the show to talk about his Cubs losing in the playoffs and the upcoming NBA season.
“I’m not in usual Cubs depression,” Wilbon said. “It feels like it’s the beginning. … People are not moping. It’s not like other postseason losses where people are plunged into depression.”
Wilbon rejected the notion that the Cubs would be less loveable if they won the World Series. “When has winning made anyone less lovable?” Wilbon said, noting the Red Sox are now more popular after winning three World Series.
Wilbon also commented on the Cavaliers giving Tristan Thompson a five-year, $82 million deal. He said all these players are getting paid a lot up front …. and that might be tough to manage for an inexperienced coach like David Blatt.
