    I’m pumped to get LeVert for Victor. Kind of surprised honestly since the rumors this off-season were he wanted out. He honestly hasn’t played good since 17-18. He was an all star before the injury but hadn’t been playing well.

    Hope he gets it back but there isn’t much out their on quad tendon comebacks. Tony Parker was at the end of his career and Chuck retired.

    Eh—he had 3 really good games to start the year, but fell off a cliff over the last 5 and is averaging like ~16ppg on 38% shooting.

    Obviously it’s an extremely small sample, but it’s not a good trend, and could easily be indicative of his conditioning (I.e., start hot but tank as soon as he starts putting on the miles).

    He visibly gained bad weight, and if it was part of his plan to force his way out, now he’s going to have to deal with both doing extra work to shed it as well as the grind of a compressed season. It’s a recipe for injury. Or it’s a lifestyle thing and he’s turning into Eddie Curry. Either way, not great.

    It’s like the NBA Q Anon. We see his fat ass playing live, yet steamengine shares one picture, supposedly from the preseason, where Harden looks skinny as proof.

    The Pistons are awful and lose to everyone, but at this point I think they could play the Bucks 50 times in a row and lose every game by at least 10 points. Tonight is the 14th time they have played Milwaukee in the last three years. They are going to be 0-14 in that stretch, and barring a massive late game surge it will be the 13th loss by double digits.

    I love Tilman, he’s the only owner that is anywhere as bad as Dolan. One could probably argue that he is worse, Dolan sucks but he’s not cheap.

    He’s “fat” in the way that 6’2” NBA players are considered “short” but also in the way that he’s definitely fucking fat.
