Before I start this, I need to say something: R.I.P. Kobe Bryant. One of the top 5 greatest basketball players to ever play. I have already written “RIP KB24” on my hat and wrist. Right after my football ended on Sunday, my dad told me Kobe Bryant had just died. He said it like it was an everyday thing so I didn’t believe him. I checked the top news stories and I froze. I still can’t believe he isn’t alive anymore. He was also one of the nicest basketball players of all time. It sucked that he died at just 41. The helicopter crash was completely on the pilot in my mind as of now. But it wasn’t just him who died. His 13 year old daughter Gianna was on the plane with him, as were 7 other people that also included a 13 year old. I’m telling you right now that LeBron and the Lakers will undoubtably win the NBA Championship. The Warriors are plagued with injuries and the Lakers are obviously the best in the west riht now. LeBron will get it done. The night before Kobe died, he passed him on the all time scoring list from 3rd to 2nd. Kobe’s last tweet was congratulating him on doing it. That tweet came about 12 hours before his death. Fun fact: Kobe and his family stayed at a resort in Mexico, at the villa next to the one my cousin stayed at for his honeymoon a month later. Seriously chilling. R.I.P. Mamba, Gianna and the 7 other people who died on that plane.
As far as my Royal Rumble predictions, I got both winners wrong. I said Reigns to win the men’s and Rousey to win the women’s. Reigns was runner up to McIntyre and I did say McIntyre was likely to win. Rousey didn’t even enter, Charlotte won and I did say that she was likely too.
Now time for my final Super Bowl prediction: The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers are set for the 54th big game. Super Bowl LIV is in Miami and it is set to be a shootout. The Chiefs explosive Offense will be way to much for the Niners to deal with for a 60 minute game. The Niners defense get’s fatigued relatively quick and Mahomes and Hill will just wear and tear on them. As far as the Niners offense, it is an all around system and way to good for the Chiefs defense the deal with. The Chiefs defense is not nearly great in my opinion. I have the final score 38-35. As far as the winner, it’s very tough to say. At the beginning of the season I said that the Chiefs would be the Eagles in the Super Bowl. At the beginning of the playoffs I said the Niners would beat the Ravens in the Super Bowl, now we have a Niners vs Chiefs game. I am leaning towards the Niners, but it is still a very tough call. If I had to choose, I am saying the 49ers. I am locking in that prediction. But then again, I am rooting for them to win this game. The Chiefs haven’t been in the Super Bowl for 50 years, where they beat the Vikings. The 49ers are going into their 7th. They have won 5. The last time they were in the Super Bowl was 7 years ago. They lost to the Ravens by 3 almost completing a great comeback. That was with Colin Kaepernick lol. The Niners haven’t made the playoffs for 6 years, now they went 13-3, got the 1 seed and dominated the playoffs. But the Chiefs went 12-4, got the 2 seed and also dominated the playoffs. Once again I have the 49ers 38-35. I am also rooting for the Niners. Let’s see what happens at Super Bowl LIV (54).
