    I think it’s unfair as fuck to even try and talk down to magic fans. The players we went to finals with abandoned us. We didn’t even get a window to win a title. It was like 1 years, that’s just torture

    Yes, Orlando is certainly more cursed than the Celtics

    That's just Florida sports, Marlins operate the same exact way

    Marlins won two titles, Heat have won 3 or 4. South Florida and Orlando aren't the same thing.

    Once again trying to tell Magic they should feel good about our history is complete bullshit and not remotely fair to us

    The Hornets have never made the conference finals. The Hornets haven’t won a playoff series since 2002.

    There's a big gap between "the Magic have a rich and illustrious history" and "the Magic are the number one most cursed franchise in basketball."

    Because you are bad and you should feel bad. But you're not the most bad

    this is a fun exercise

    Blazers get one title and MVP from Walton before he bounces and then

    lose coinflip and Olajuwon to Houston, drafts Sam Bowie over Jordan
    Drafts Sabonis only to get him a decade + later
    lose two finals to Pistons and Bulls
    Drexler bounces to Houston, gets his ring
    blows 16 point lead in WCF to Shaq & Kobe and Tim Donaghy
    Jailblazer era
    drafts Oden over Durant
    Brandon Roy's premature retirement

    other notable tidbits;

    drafted LaRue Martin over McAdoo and Dr. J
    Wally Walker over A. Dantley and R. Parish
    Mychal Thompson over Larry Bird
    Justin Jackson over OG Anunoby

    Once it's a double digit draft pick you don't really get to complain, it's such a crap shoot at that point. Every team in the league could list something like that practically every season

    If this is the case I don’t think he’s taking it seriously and his comments about getting help weren’t real. That’s a shame if he went just to fulfill the leagues ruling.

    It seems like a pretty blatant attempt at “flipping” the narrative, just seems like he doesn’t give a shit and was told he had to in order to avoid some of the scrutiny. Unlikely he’s any less of a dumb asshole

    Is this the kind of thing he can't get help with while also playing? I get what you're saying, but we're not talking about addiction/rehab here.

    I don't know what should have happened here, but if he didn't break the rule that would have led to an automatic 50 game suspension, I'm not sure what the league was supposed to do.

    You could be right. The optics of saying you’re getting help and going for treatment for one day, even if the rest is therapy and outpatient is a bad look. Don’t make this grand statement about going away and getting help. Just say I’m starting and continuing my journey. Just feels flat to me personally.

    Nerdy NBA writers seem to be addicted to flowery, fawning prose whenever they write about Jokic. Like they're all in a contest to see who can come up with the best metaphor for how much they love him. I can see how it would get annoying if you aren't a fan.
