Throughout the 2016-17 NBA Regular Season and into the Playoffs, one discussion has dominated the rest: Who should win MVP? Russell Westbrook or James Harden?

For years, any soccer fan worth their salt has known that Gareth Bale is one of the best players on the planet.

Let it be known that on April 9, 2017, Russell Westbrook rewrote history books by getting his 42nd triple-double of the season, breaking Oscar Robertson’s 56-year-old record.

Forget that the South Carolina Gamecocks beat the Mississippi State Bulldogs to win the Women’s National Championship Game, I want to talk about what happened before that when the Mississippi State Bulldogs beat the vaunted UCONN Huskies in the semifinals.

It was announced following the 49ers’ Week 17 loss that head coach Chip Kelly, along with GM Trent Baalke, was fired effective immediately.
