Sporting*Goods: The Return Of Jon Jones & Tristan Thompson’s Holdout



“Intuition is there even when my vision’s impaired, yeah / Knowin I can go, just switchin a spare / On the highway of life, nigga it’s sharp in my sight” – Jay-ZDynasty Intro

The first week of Halloween month has gotten off to a kooky start. Training camps have opened in the NBA and Derrick Rose is already making headlines for the wrong reason. Already known as quite the enigma Rose kept up that reputation with one of the oddest (and straight forward) comments to kick off training camp. Staying in the NBA Central division we go up to Cleveland where the Cavaliers kicked off their camp without Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, two of their biggest contributors from last season.

Irving is recovering from that dislocated knee suffered in Game 1 of the 2015 Finals. Thompson is perfectly healthy (for as much as we know), but has not shown up for camp yet as he continues to look for an extension. The NFL joined in on the kooky behavior with the ongoing saga that is the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts were supposed to run through the AFC and reach the Super Bowl, but will now be lucky to just reach the postseason.

See what’s going on with the Colts, Tristan Thompson and Jon Jones’ possible return to the octagon in this edition of Sporting*Goods.
