Kawhi Leonard turned a shaky Spurs start into a blowout Game 1 win

The Kawhi Leonard experience continues to be absolutely stunning. His defense has always been special, but now his offense is coming into a league of its own. The Spurs found themselves in a hole early as the Grizzlies jumped out to a 22-9 lead and led 30-25 after the first quarter. But as you would expect, the Spurs responded in the second and third quarters, to take a 84-64 lead thanks to a Kawhi Leonard takeover that would put the Spurs ahead for good.

Philadelphia will host the 2017 draft later this month after what was by all accounts a successful two-year run in Chicago. The move out of New York beginning in 2015 was originally prompted by scheduling conflicts at Radio City, but the NFL quickly found taking the show on the road to be a buzz-generating proposition.

Most expect the 2018 draft to be hosted by the Cowboys, with reports dating back to last year’s event suggesting owner Jerry Jones was pushing hard to hold the showcase at The Star, the Cheap Jerseys And Sunglasses team’s newly opened “world headquarters” in suburban Frisco.

The Daily News reports Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, would MLB Jerseys China like to host in either 2019 or 2020 — the latter year marking the NFL’s 100th anniversary. Los Angeles, Denver, Detroit, Kansas City, Green Bay and Jacksonville also have thrown their hats in the ring as potential hosts.

After holding the draft in New York for 50 consecutive years, it’s no surprise the NFL sees value in moving the event around, and the league certainly appears inclined to ride that wave as long as it can.
