That’s a pretty silly position you’ve got, there.
My dude. Fultz was drafted by the Sixers, who finished with the fourth-worst record in the NBA last season.
Opting out of a contract isn’t remotely the same thing as quitting a job. Opting out is a normal and intended part of the labor market of professional sports.
You don’t actually know what you’re talking about.
I hear you. I’m glad streaming embeds allow everyone to make their own choice about whether to watch.
Well, yes, I imagine if he had success proving collusion, he’d be entitled to damages. But I think what he wants is a job!
Yeah, as much as I personally would like to see him kick the ass of the NFL and NFL owners, I think he’s gonna have an impossible time proving collusion. And not because some or all of them didn’t make a group decision to stiff arm him, but because I can’t imagine there’s any convincing evidence of that.
I dunno, man. At a time when the violence and destruction of sports is an ongoing discussion, this is definitely news. And even without that discussion, a professional keeper dying from an on-field collision is news. And video of the event is news. I respect your position, and I know the feeling of not wanting to…
No, I guess I don’t. I mean, it’s important to remember that Dwyane Wade can make a legitimate case for being one of the five best shooting guards in NBA history. Ben Simmons has a long way to go to get to that level, just by virtue of its general improbability, before we even get to the part where he’s a poor shooter…
I’d say their chances at a title in the next three years are incredibly slim, even assuming decent injury luck. Joel Embiid is really good, when healthy. Let’s assume he becomes as good as LeBron (an insane reach, but useful for this exercise): it took LeBron nine seasons of being the best basketball player on the…
Yao Ming was the first overall draft pick in 2002. He played his first (I think) twelve or so games off the bench, before moving into the starting role. But I also think 15 drafts is a large enough sample to make the point that it’s extremely rare for a healthy number one overall pick to start on the bench, and the…
This originally said Jarrett Jack instead of Jerryd Bayless, because for whatever reason I always, always confuse the two.
The Daily Mail report says it was “head and neck trauma.” Huda seems to grab his jaw in the moments immediately after the collision, but I frankly can’t bring myself to watch it again, for a closer look.
Stop it, Hassan.
He didn’t even catch it! He doinked it, and his dad had to snatch it up off the damn seats.
Of all the dumbass shit.
I guess I don’t really understand what you’re saying, here. I think the idea behind their demonstration is to draw attention to a problem, and this accomplishes that. It doesn’t have to be rich with symbolism if it brings an issue forward, is I guess where I come down on that.
I don’t think it really works like that. I think even an analyst who said the Warriors would become a perennial contender wouldn’t be able to take much credit for it, because you can never predict how things like injuries might shape the future. If Steph’s knee injury a couple years ago turned out to be more serious,…
