It was his second stint in the CBA with the veteran guard looking to keep his professional basketball career alive. Now, it might be coming to an end.

I ’m not trying to say that the NFL, NBA, MLB et al don’t matter, it’s just more that they don’t have fat bears competing — so sue me . The Katmai National Park and Preserve in King Salmon, Alaska, is holding its annual competition to rate and appreciate the fattest bears living in the park.

I just learned that Fat Bear Week is a thing, and now Fat Bear Week is the only sport I care about. I’m not trying to say that the NFL, NBA, MLB et al don’t matter, it’s just more that they don’t have fat bears competing — so sue me.

The Katmai National Park and Preserve in King Salmon, Alaska, is holding its annual competition to rate and appreciate the fattest bears living in the park. It’s a competition that shines a light on the burly beasts as they prepare for winter hibernation and loves them for the big-time eating these absolute units have been doing. It’s an appreciation of the bounty found in the park that allows these bears to bulk up.

Fat bears exemplify the richness of Katmai and Fat Bear Week is a celebration of fat bears and Katmai’s healthy, robust ecosystem. Even though I care about the bears , I try to always keep in mind that Katmai's bears are wild animals and that national parks not only protect the beauty in

Scouting report on some of these fat bears.

You can check out the full field of the fat bears here, but here are some of my feelings on these bears.

Holly

Holly is getting a first round bye as the reigning 2019 fat bear champion, and it’s well deserved. Last year she showed up the true power of bear weight gain, chonking up to incredible levels to prepare for the winter.

Holly has the gift of true gains, and for that reason alone I think she’s going to be the bear to watch this fall.

Otis

A multi-year champion, the photogenic and hefty Otis can never be counted out of any fat bear competition. While he may have been unseated last year by Holly, overlooking this big bear is a fool’s errand. Look no further than his 2016 win to see the potential Otis brings.

  Fat Bear Week 2020: Meet the Heavy Hibernators Packing on the Pounds for Your Vote This Year! Last year's champ Holly will compete against 11 other brown bears, including her own spring cubYou read that right — the National Park Service unveiled the lineup of chunky brown bears set for the annual event that celebrates the wild animals packing on the pounds before hibernating for the winter.

That ’s right, players are throwing out the beef and picking up the beets, putting down the chicken and picking up the chickpeas. I ’m on a vegan diet now . I started that this past summer,” he said. “The reason I did it is just health benefits. My knee was swelling up a lot and I couldn’t really get my knee to

There could only be one queen or king of the Fat Bear Week . This chubby girl was competing with Holly in the finals. If a bear is fat from feeding a lot in the wild before its winter hibernation, that is normal and OK. But it is actually cruel to feed bears .

Chunk

I identify with Chunk on a visceral level, because I think we have the same body type.

Chunk is a large adult male with narrowly-set eyes and a prominent brow ridge. Even at his leanest, Chunk carries substantial fat reserves, especially on his hind quarters.

Backpack

Aside from his very good name, I have some doubts whether Backpack will be able to bulk up enough to compete properly in the Fat Bear competition.

There’s some promising bulk for sure, but it doesn’t feel like it’s quite enough at this time.

How can I watch the 2020 Fat Bear Week?

Follow along with the official Twitter account, but if you plan to really get deep into these proceedings like I do, then you’ll be watching the live cameras of the fat bears in all their glory.

Watching bears fish for massive amounts of salmon and judging their increasing girth isn’t just the sport I wanted, it’s the sport I needed. Rest assured, dear reader, that I will continue to chronicle the events of Fat Bear Week in their entirety.

Top MLB pitching trade candidates ahead of deadline .
The 2020 MLB trade deadline will be something we've never experienced before. With less than 25 games - for most teams - remaining in the regular season, an expanded playoff field, fewer clear-cut sellers, unsettled financial situations, and no minor-league season, this year's deadline is highly unpredictable. Here are some of the pitchers that could potentially be moved ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline. 1. Mike Clevinger, Indians, SP Remaining1.
