Today, Cristiano Ronaldo has won his second consecutive and his fifth Ballon d’Or overall in his prestigious career. Its his For those who don’t know, the Ballon d’Or is similar to a MVP trophy, but its for the top European leagues. Ronaldo ties Lionel Messi with five total Ballon d’Or awards.
The Cleveland Cavaliers win last night made it a bakers dozen of wins in a row for them. They tied the franchise mark at 13 and its only the third time in franchise history they’ve done so. LeBron James is playing some of the best basketball I’ve seen in recent memory. His squad is without the likes of Tristen Thompson, Isaiah Thomas, and Iman Shumpert all due to injuries, and yet LeBron keeps it all flowing as if they were all playing. He’s averaging 27.2 pts, 8.9 Reb, 8.2 ast, .573% from the field, and .473% from beyond the arc. Cavs look to stay hot and break the win streak record when they play the Pacers next. I have a feeling they will, the Pacers are average at best.
