What do you mean by “acceptable”? Are you asking whether there’s a kind of centrism that I, personally, will like? No, there isn’t. The politics I like are the ones I have.
You’ve got a better shot at seeing your byline on Deadspin/the Concourse if you pitch a reported story, rather than an opinion piece. No disrespect to you personally, or to your opinions, but that stuff’s in lesser demand.
I voted for her, you fucking moron. Would my vote have counted for more if I’d been more enthusiastic about it?
Joke’s on you, buddy: I never went to college!
Honestly, I tear up like 45 minutes earlier in that movie, when he’s trying to defend himself but instead blurts out “I’m a bad father!”
Ah man, when Harry shows up at the end of It’s a Wonderful Life. The look on George’s face. I cry every time!
My all-time most embarrassing Child Of Divorce moment is when I completely melted down during a showing of Field of Dreams at the summer camp my brother and I got sent to the summer after my parents split up.
That’s not dumb! Anyone who is not moved to tears at least one time in that movie is a friggin’ robot. They should administer it like the Voight-Kampff test in Blade Runner.
Yeah the bit with the lady tucking her kids in is where I usually have to turn the movie off. Because the thing is, lots and lots and lots of people probably did have to do their own versions of that when the Titanic sank! It’s unbearable to think about.
the fact that you were in 6th grade in 2000 makes me want to crawl into the yawning grave and scoop dirt onto myself
I answered this in another thread, but, to me Kidd isn’t really a good comparison. He played for such a long time that it’s easy to forget what a monster athlete Kidd was in his first few years, especially relative to PGs at the time. He was a whole new specimen. I don’t think Lonzo will ever be able to put the kind…
People seem to like the Kidd comparison, but man, Kidd was a freakish athlete as a young player, relative to the NBA at the time. He was maybe the fastest coast-to-coast player in the league, and he was incredibly strong for a PG; he could drive by defenders, and could muscle the ball up to the rim. His whole game was…
The funny thing is, I don’t think any of your diagnoses here are quite wrong (although I do think Lonzo projects to be a good defender, thanks to his length and active hands and general IQ, and he’s only maybe an inch shorter than Shaun Livingston), I just have a different conclusion. If the Lakers really believe in…
That’s not bad, but Rondo was more the type who pounded the ball a lot to create the openings he passed into. Lonzo’s vision is better and he moves the ball out of his hands a lot more quickly; he doesn’t farm assists so much as he gets them organically by being a really good distributor. (Plus, there’s every reason…
Eh, that’s kind of the point. It’s not a particularly eye-popping play, but it points to a way that he’ll be able to be effective in the NBA: By recognizing the size mismatches he’ll have and being comfortable working in the post. It’s the play of a smart and skilled guy, rather than a monstrously gifted one.
Shit, you’re right! I’m fixing it. God, I don’t know how I fucked that up.
That would rule!
I know a couple of smart people who’ve also pegged Rubio as Lonzo’s floor, but man, Rubio is a lot quicker than Lonzo. Both in terms of his first step and in terms of his ability to snake his way through traffic. I don’t think Lonzo will ever have Rubio’s ability to probe around and knife through a defense. He’s so…
I mean, I know “a taller Andre Miller” doesn’t tent anybody’s undies, but Andre Miller was a really good player for a long time. He just happened to have the kind of game that came up a little bit short of making him an All-Star type during his peak years. If he’d come along a little later, now that the game has…
Hi. This article is much older than that.
