Take this all with a grain of salt. It's meant to be fun.
As Thursday's SportsTalk Live show came to a close, the panelists each signed off with a bold statement.
The first two started out normal enough: Charles Tillman will sign a multi-year deal with the Bears and the Wrigley-rooftops battle will come to an end.
Then Gordon Wittenmyer stepped in.
"I'm going to mix sports here and say Jeff Samardzija wins a ring before LeBron wins another one," Wittenmyer said.
That statement tells us two things. First off, Wittenmyer, the Chicago Sun-Times Cubs beat writer, believes LeBron James and the Miami Heat will not win a championship this season, considering the NBA Finals are played in April.

It also indicates that either Wittenmyer believes the Cubs are going to win a World Series soon...or they're going to trade Samardzija to a contender who ends up winning the World Series before LeBron's next title.
Hey, it could happen.
