Tomorrow’s LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor’s preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done.

Last week we debuted Flip, a documentary about Flip Naumburg. Who is Flip Naumburg? Oh, only the visionary behind offset heads, the architect of the MCLA dynasty that is Colorado State, and the founder of Rock-It-Pocket. A recent CSU grad, Patrick Sullivan, responded to my tweet about the film with these words about Flip.
