Well, it’s that time of the week again. The best time of the week. The time when you get to see who’s killin’ it on and off of the field, pitch, court, and diamond. It’s time for Style Points, which means it’s not only about what you do, but how you do it.
The past few weeks have given us spectacular finishes to games, our World Series contenders, some exciting football, some hype surrounding the NBA season, and a future NFL hopeful. Neymar and Kobe Bryant are both back, shutting up the critics and dispelling the injury claims about them. You’d think, at some point, the haters would just shut up and respect greatness. Nope, that would be too easy. Instead, they’re falling all over each other to be the first to jump off the bandwagon. Great players get to where they are by defying the odds and doing things the average athlete can’t do. It’s what separates them, makes them different.
I would tell you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the best summary of the past few weeks of sports, but quite honestly, you’re just gonna have to get ready…because Neymar, Kobe, Nate Robinson, a college football kicker, Eric Bledsoe, and a rugby star are bringin’ the heat in this week’s Style Points, not to mention a clutch last-inning stunner.
Get yourself ready for the colder weather and the start of the NBA season with this week’s Style Points: Neymar, Kobe, and the Preseason’s Nastiest Crossover.
