Heck. Warren should just ask Trump to take an IQ test.

The President's not a racist. Kid says so. And while he might be a dummy, there's one thing that Kid knows and that's racism.

Tri-State is 3-0 and at the top of the league after knocking off previously undefeated Power team coached by Nancy Leiberman, the first female head coach in a men's pro-league.

Tri State includes Nate Robinson and Amare. They also have Jermain O'Neil. And are coached by Doctor J.  

Amare looks frail thin.  Leading me to wonder if he was juicing in the NBA.

The Power team includes Cuttino Mobley who sports an actual grey beard and Quentin Richardson. They have Birdman and Big Baby but their best player is Corey Maggette.


Thinking it would be enjoyable, I watched a little of it last night. Just awful. More griping about the refs than the NBA.

The Celtics were one quarter away from beating the greatest player of his generation and getting to the finals.  That greatest player is now gone and the Celtics have two top 20 players returning to their lineup. I'm not quite sure I would call that "treading water", but Kid knows things.

Gordie replaces who on the floor?

And if they were to lose Smart.....

I dont see them being much better

Tatum and Brown need to relearn - how to gel with KI.

Horford is Horford - wont be affected

Yankguy - who gets better on that roster?
I assume Brown and Tatum get better.  You can worry about chemistry.  I worry about having more good players.  More talent.

Hardly.  I pay little attention to the Wizards.  They've bored me for years.

I don't root for the Wizards.

The only reason Irving would give me pause is because of his injuries.  His weirdness factor?  Who cares?  And while he's not a great defender, I think his defensive shortcomings are exaggerated.    The Celtics were near the top of the league defensively even in games he played and Cleveland was a better defensive team with him on the court than with him not on the court.  Is he a good defender?  No.  But not taking him because of his defensive shortcomings makes little sense to me.

Now that I've committed a substantial amount of money to Michigan do I get to make a "safety school too" joke about Ohio State?

Rubio in

No Frank

Oh, the possibilities.....

Adebayo or Collins sure would have looked good for us.

Pass on all the above. Thanks

The Prophet's Modus Operandi is to focus in on ANYONE whom ANYONE ELSE evinces enthusiasm for, and there-ever-after launches a scorched Earth strategy of smug condescension and derision, because only the Heh Jedi has the steely analytics and conceptual insights to identify talent.  

That's the long game.  

The short game.

You say Toe-May-Toe?

Well then, I'll say Toe-Mah-Tu.  

So, KP is an overrated, immature malcontent, only we are blinded to that fact.  

Frank was a terrible pick and will never be worth a damn.  

Hardaway and Mudiay are way better than the evidence suggests (may be right, there).  And I believe Coach Fizdale suspects as much as well, which is why he's already doubled down on them (everyone, actually...you eat what you kill) needing TO WIN THE JOB, not simply compete.  

But then, the Prophet is already well into mid-season form in dismissing the very idea that Coach might have any influence on the growth and maturity of his charges, or that the current administration has any credibility compared to the much maligned and misunderstood majesty of Phil Jackson.  

PS: It would appear, based on cumulative evidence, that Kiid is actually Charley Rosen.

While I think this is an outstanding breakdown in both detail AND analysis, I generally prefer to use "Kid knows things."

Nobody seems to have posted about this, despite its being one of Red's favorite topics:
https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/state-bans-guns-that-hold-more-than-10-rounds-citizens-told-to-surrender-them-or-become-criminals.html

Citizens have 180 days from passage to turn in or modify offending weapons, or find a home with somebody licensed to have them.

The first lawsuits must be pending already.


Seizure of property without renumeration

Nice
What the hell is "renumeration"?

Are you paying him for what he's done or what he will do?
44  Sports / Baseball / Re: National League on: June 29, 2018, 10:15:57 PM
Heh.
