President Trump asked Kirk Cousins about his contract and whether LeBron James was still the best

President Trump asked Kirk Cousins about his contract and whether LeBron James was still the best

Is LeBron James still the best player in the NBA? Is Kirk Cousins going to re-sign with the Redskins? 

Those are the top two questions on the minds of many D.C. sports fans. They're also on the mind of President Donald Trump. 

Trump brought up both subjects at lunch after playing a round of golf with Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins

Eric Shuster, CSN's Director of Strategic Partnerships, joined the June 10 outing as a personal friend of Cousins and related pieces of the day's conversations. 

While dining at the Trump National Golf Club grill, Shuster said the President asked him and Cousins what they thought of the hot NBA topics of the day.

Could the Cavaliers, who had just routed the Warriors in Game 4 to stave off elimination, pull off a comeback to win the NBA Finals? And was LeBron James still the best player in the NBA?

Trump was curious what they thought, but didn't reveal his own take on the topics during the conversation.

Having recently relocated from New York to Washington, Trump wanted to know how Cousins liked his time there, and whether he planned to re-sign with the Redskins. 

That's been the major question for the franchise and its fans for the past two summers.

But even the President of the United States asking didn't change Cousins's polite response: He would leave the contract talk to his agent.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.
