    In case any of you want to text Silver to complain about the schedule, how Tony Brothers and Scott Foster still have jobs, or any other reason:

     
  2. I'd rather have Shaq on the FT line than Duke-era Reddish shooting anything other than a wide open layup or dunk.

    This is apparently the largest sale of a franchise in sports history.



    Prokhorov bought the whole franchise for like 200-300 million. Must be nice to make 10x your investment in less than 10 years.

    Did Prokhorov or taxpayers pay for Barclays? Either way, a guy who many thought was a moron for some of his moves made out huge.

    Owning pretty much any NBA/NFL/EPL team is just printing money plus some get worshipped for some reason I'll never know.

    That sale price listed is strictly for the franchise and not for Barclays. Tsai is in talks to buy the arena as well because the NBA wants its franchises to own their arenas so it's likely he'll end up paying even more. It's also bit confusing because what's being sold is the rights to operate the arena as opposed to the arena itself which is owned by the state due to tax purposes.

    This is from the post though:
    Like you said though either way he made out huge.

    also our radio play by play guy was fired right after the lamb full court winner against toronto

    he hosted a really popular radio show and was fairly well known around town. there has yet to be any reason given. he hasn’t tweeted from his personal account since the shot. no one knows what happened to him

    i think he’s been murdered.

    I know you’re doing your schtick but I will admit the Jordan dunk turned layup against the Lakers in the Finals is one of the most overrated highlights of all time

    since I made fun of ShuPoor 's team's poor management, it is only fair that I post a similar video of my team in one of the worst moments in my sports fandom life

    That's awful for Boogie and I feel really bad for him.

    I also think that, while really harsh, it's probably going to end up being good for LA this year.

    Are they signing another big? Davis and McGee are the only two they have on the roster currently.

    I'm sure they'll at least try to bring in another big body.

    The more Davis plays the 5, the higher LA's ceiling is. Sucks for Boogie, but playing a traditional center next to Davis wasn't going to work when their other two best players are LeBron and Kuzma.
