My cousin is getting ready to strike in Orlando because of how little Disney has their act together in their Florida facilities.

Or Nate.
He's probably somewhere.  And ready.

Why not just get Jimmer and call Championship.

Maybe Rondo is more effective than Crawford was in Phoenix, but Crawford had a better run than JR last time both were on the court.

1. JEarl plays better D than Craw.
Almost everyone does

2. LeBJ knows Jearl

Two articles on college sports

Why Draymond Green believes 'the entire system is broken' for college athletes

Less than five years into its massive $280 million deal with UCLA, Under Armour is trying to get out.  Under Armour informed the school that it wants to terminate the 15-year, $280 million deal.  Under Armour reportedly paid UCLA $15 million up front, and then agreed to about $11 million each year in rights and marketing fees. It also provides about $7.4 million in clothing, shoes and equipment each year, and about $2 million each year for facility upgrades.

Nearly $20M a year in sponsorship.  And free labor.  Not bad ...

Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler is opting out of playing in Orlando, Florida.  The Portland Trail Blazers' Trevor Ariza, the Washington Wizards' Davis Bertans, the Los Angeles Lakers' Avery Bradley and the Dallas Mavericks' Willie Cauley-Stein have also told their respective teams that they will not be playing when the season resumes.

I think these are all guys who will likely be free agents (Ariza with just $1.8 guaranteed next year).  Guys who don't want to hurt their value or get hurt.
And expecting to move on, they don't have much team loyalty. 

The only key one is A Very Bradley.  Since Lakes are a contender and he was starting.  The other opt-outs (so far) are on weak teams not expected to go far.
Though POR has some potential if Nurk & Zach are back.  Then losing Ariza could hurt.

A Very Bradley not going to the Bubble.
Lakes might waive him and pick up JEarl Smith who has been out of NBA for two years.  JEarl might need to just clear up his blood chemicals a bit.

That hurts the Lakes, as Bradley was a defensive demon and fit well for them (he was starting during their run, I believe).  Means LBJ has to play more D and LAL has to rely on Rondo more.

JR Smith has signed with the Lakers per Woj.

I don't like teams reconfiguring before the playoffs, but we've had this the last handful of seasons where players get bought out and catch on with a playoff team.  So it's become normalized.

WNBA star Maya Moore helps free innocent man from prison

Guy spent 20 years in jail.   It was a home burglary where the homeowner got shot twice but survived.  Got a 50 year sentence, without killing anyone.  Kid was 16 when it happened but tried as an adult.  Kind of crazy all around.  But the evidence was flimsy and the jury all-white.

And of course he's not the only one railroaded suchly.
Hell, even if he were guilty, 20 years would likely be recompense, especially since he was so young at the time.

Hurray for Maya Moore!
