Strange but true:
Stage 11 today, and the last 7 winners at this stage
have gone on to win the overall race!!

So after the 1st Pyrenean stage, Julian Alaphilippe retained the overall lead,
with the individual time in Pau as his next challenge,
on this very day, the 100th birthday of the Yellow Jersey.

Gentlemen, place your bet: J.A.

Aujourd'hui, 18 juillet 2019,
Le maillot jaune a 100 ans.
= | ° °
At the start of a 5,560-km cycling competition
in 1903, there was no clear indicator to show
who was winning the competition overall; the
Leader received only a green armband that
could not be easily seen by most watching.
| ° °
In 1919, the Tour de France returned following
a four-year hiatus because of World War I.
2/3's of the way thru the race, the director
of Le Tour de France, Henri Desgrange,
decided on a clearer identifier for the leader.
He came up with the idea that whoever had the
fastest overall time at a given stage of the race
would wear a yellow jersey — yellow in honor
of the sports newspaper sponsoring the race,
"L’Auto-Vélo" that was printed on yellow paper.
| ° °
At 2 a.m. on 18 July 1919, Desgrange gave the
current leader, Eugène Christophe, the first
incarnation of the jersey to take with him.
But unlike its modern counterparts, this yellow
jersey was made of thick wool, and Christophe
complained that the yellow looked silly —
insisting that it made him resemble a canary.
| ° °
Le maillot jaune is still used to demarcate the
race leader, with one addition: after Desgrange
died in 1940, his initials, "HD" — were included
on the waistline.
| ° °
To celebrate the centenary of the yellow jersey,
Tour de France's Amaury Sports Organisation
and the race’s jersey sponsor Le Coq Sportif
have announced 20 unique yellow jerseys
to be worn during the 2019 Tour de France.
| ° °
Leaving from Brussels where the 1st Stage's
Yellow Jersey will feature the Atomium, then,
the last Yellow Jersey will feature the image
of the Arc de Triomphe & Champs-Elysées,
while other Yellow Jerseys for the satges in
between the 1st & last stages will feature a
portrait of Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault,
Jacques Anquetil, Miguel Indurain, &c..

MLB, stop neglecting local rivalries

MLB ought to give the fans what piques their interest,
scheduling a yearly seven game series of local rivals:
Cubbies vs. Chi-Sox  (aka, The Crosstown Cup)
{perfect parity: W/L, HRs, H, BB, even WS Titles (3)}
Cards vs. Royals
Brew Crew v. T.C.
Dodgers v. Angels
Giants v. A's
Mets v. Yanks
Marlins v. Devil Rays
O's v. Nats
Pirates v. Injins
and,
Reds v. The Tribe

May Odin's day be thunderous for Thor!
(especially if excluding Cubbies Over)

Your observation still holds up.
And this was the case for GSW, from the time of your original post
upto, but not including the 2019 Finals.

Kawhi shut down Kevin Durant & any & all Warriors trying to be a playmaker,
as he dominating the 1st Half, then matched GSW point-for-point as GSW made
their usual strongest push in the 3rd Quarter.  None expected GSW to roll over
like the Houston Rockets, but it sure looked & felt like S.A. would easily hold
their huge 20+ point lead over GS w/ Kawhi controlling both ends of the court.
But Kawhi got wiped out by Go State's Zaza P. after 28 minutes into Game #1
with the Spurs were up by 23 points, 78-55...

Without Kawhi playing, G.S. went on an 18-0 run that took about 2 minutes.
The rest of the Spurs fought hard & proudly, staying closer in the final minutes
than most expected.  But ultimately, the talent gap w/o Kawhi was too wide, as
GSW & Zaza P.  stole a game (& likely the series) out from under the Spurs.

Today, Kawhi shows that he's the NBA's best 2-way (Offense & Defense) dude!
And that's what he has that's what it takes to win a Game 7.


Even today, 15 June '19 peep's gone axe me:
"Who dat Quiet Lend-art U steady talkin' bout?"

Agreed. Team-play, including Defense, is that engine driving Interest.

Wouldn't it be almost better to collect you 3-15 mill and go on vacation early? I personally think the Warriors ruined the League with that style of play and now Harden with his blatant traveling that is not called is another death nail. Why would any average team even try to compete in a stacked deck? It's a big issue going forward...it's kinda weird that it also reflects the state of the Union with a few haves and many have nots, that divide isn't sustainable.[/Quote]

The NBA took defense away, as similar new rules in the NFL did, resulting in games that are not fun to watch (much unlike the NHL).  Lack of effort, lack of any real fight put up by the players, is as apparent and predictable as the winners who will advance — nobody in their right mind gives the Pistons any chance in hell to knock off the Bucks, let alone sweep them out of the playoffs  —  and yet this is exactly what happened in the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the #8-seed Isles swept out the national hockey league's best team by regular season record.  Defense in the NHL is still a very significant factor and is REAL; helmet-to-helmet hits that the NFL hates to see occur, well in the NHL those are  the least of the many types of bites taken out of the players.  This year there's been a serious fist-fight in every period of every match  —  there's never any real fight by players in the NBA or in the NFL — NBA/NFL players' rare shoving match is NOT fighting, but rather a fleeting, five-second or less, feeble display of effort.
