Steve Kerr hopes that sport leagues will soften their stance on marijuana. Steve Kerr is the Golden State Warriors head coach and had back surgery last season. He admitted to using marijuana twice to help with his chronic pain in his back. Kerr explains that he is not an “expert” but he knows weed is better on the body than prescription meds like Vicodin. The use of marijuana is a form of pain relief and Steve Kerr believes that weed should be used to help with the pain. Prescription drugs are addicting but on the other hand marijuana is not addicting. Should marijuana be used for pain relief? That’s what Warriors head coach Steve Kerr believes.
With the NBA season a quarter of the way over, Russell Westbrook is still averaging a triple double. Russell is the first person to maintain this stat this deep into the year in over 50 years.

Chris Sale from the White Sox had been traded to the Red Sox. He will be switching sock colors this year. Chris Sale was traded in exchange for Yoan Moncada, Michael Kopech, Luis Basabe and Victor Diaz. That’s a pretty big trade, a 4 for 1 trade. That may seem a little outrageous but youre wrong, Chris Sale is a dominanting lefty who has been dominate in the MLB for years now. Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in the MLB and is only getting better. In my book it was a good trade. The Red Sox pitching rotation this year will be unreal with Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Klay Buckolts. That’s a solid rotation right there. The Red Sox fell short this year in the playoffs but don’t be shocked if they make it back and even farther this year now that they have Chris Sale.
