Let’s go ahead and report this after all the physical evidence is gone, after alibis cant be verified or established, after witness memory is hazy....and conveniently at a time when somebody is rising to a better station in life. I’m not saying she is lying or isnt lying...but it cant be proven or unproven with any… Read more
i work 55-60 hours a week at a job, and spend much of my spare time trying to get a writing career off the ground. i’m fine with supporting those who are unwilling to work. but then again i’m a socialist (and also not a sanctimonious piece of shit who still buys into the toxic myth of the protestant work ethic) so… Read more
My personal take, as our increasing automation lowers the available number of truly necessary jobs, is that work should be about making money to improve your life and provide comforts. Rather than earning the “right to live” in dollars and cents.
Everyone should have the money or resources to live. Even if they can’t… Read more
your argument is exactly who that part is for. although worded poorly, it’s talking about a universal basic income. this would allow those who would rather “sit at home working on my shitty novel”, etc... to do so with the knowledge that they won’t go hungry or become homeless. when people aren’t forced to work 1 or… Read more
The linked article doesn’t provide any information other than the promotional activities, which I don’t believe was the initial topic. I was trying to figure out if what’s mentioned in this article (avoiding the media for 9 days/walking out of a presser) was a violation of his contract or the CBA. Read more
Legit Q - what are the snakelike qualities? The burner thing or something else? I’m legit interested in this because I don’t understand it. Like, if you’re an OKC fan and you think he was a snake to leave, well, w/e. But if you’re not an OKC fan and you had a problem with him leaving, I find that odd. Read more
Underrated. No shit they would have tried if they could.
You seem to be equating the fact that it would be good for him (or those around him) with it being within his job description. I’m not sure that he could be paid any more money by his current employer if he played nicer with the media, since he will likely be on a max deal for the rest of his prime years. There are… Read more
Is it, though? I’m not sure what obligations truly exist within his contract or the CBA with regards to media exposure. I did some quick googling and it says that players have to be available for 45 minutes after games, but if he can just up and walk out after a 2 minute presser or not show up for 9 days without being… Read more
He’s man enough to go on Simmons’ podcast 4 or 5 times and talk real talk, which is more than most superstars (LeBron!) are willing to do. He’s sensitive AF, no doubt, but he appears more honest and transparent than the average top 10 player in (name your pro sports league). I can see why people don’t love him, but… Read more
Yeah, no way. I get where you have to be tenacious to get scoops and stories, but I’ll never understand why reporters waste so much time and effort (not to mention readers’ and viewers’ time) asking questions which will either produce rote answers or solicit zero new information.
