I know the common lay fan doesn’t see it, but this is why hard cores are so high on Kyrgios (why Giri writes about him so much). If he (Kyrgios) could only tap into a reservoir of stamina and passion that he hasn’t yet shown to possess but we are continuing to hope is there, he could rule the sport.
Nick Kyrgios Goes Through The Legs, Up And Over
Imagine how good Kyrgios could be if he wasn’t always bored with the sport.
His actual comps are Harrison Barnes and Danilo Gallinari who are a lot like KD and Giannis in that they are tall and play basketball professionally.
YES thank you M. Teufelschlaeger, the Amsel, in German, European Blackbird otherwise, a thrush like the American Robin, and an AMAZING singer. When I lived in Germany these beauties were everywhere, backyards, tree tops, phone lines, everywhere, which explains how their volume in Stuttgart (a beautiful city) by sheer…
I’m sure the list of All-Stars wanting to move to an EPA Superfund site and watch Jordan Clarkson throw up 14 bricks a game is extremely long.
LeBron: [looks at picture, thinks about having to carry Kawhi in addition to the rest of the team, leaves]
Pretty incredible that he could play with his Dad and for his Dad when he’s the de facto coach/GM in Los Angeles/New York/but definitely not Houston
But what if you’re really good at basketball?

I wish players would stylize smashes more. It’s like a fast break dunk in basketball. You have an essentially defenseless opponent that has already accepted their fate. Everyone knows when a smash is coming, and there is usually that beat or two for the player to come up with something cool. I’m talking a spinning…
That last strike in the last clip—pretty sure that’s what Caine used to kill Abel. Or how Samson killed 1,00 Philistines. It’s fucking Biblical, is what I’m saying.
I was wondering what you could possibly write for this year. This was all that could possibly be said. He’s ridiculous.
That said, I agree with you that the return game is great right now, and like you, I love the current state of play. But still: in percentage terms, the serve is it.
The serve doesn’t have to be an ace or a clean winner to be the most important shot: it sets up the pattern of the point, and a good serve puts the server in an advantageous position even if the return is fairly solid. As I heard one pro tennis player say once (don’t remember who), one of the main things rec players…
I’ve come full circle on him. I hated him so much that I kinda respect it now. We’re just here to be entertained, after all. And he’s really embraced this persona.
So assuming Lebron sees this tape, we should expect to see Darius Borke, a mysterious mustachioed gentleman with flowing blonde locks, join the Cleveland Cavaliers?
That full court pressure D is just mean.
