    Motiejunas played 60 NBA games since he failed that physical. The following offseason, he signed an offer sheet the Rockets matched, but it was basically voided because he didn't show up for his physical. Then he worked out a new deal with the Rockets, but that deal was also scrapped after he finally took his physical there and they seemingly found something that stopped that contract from being signed. He's since played 37 NBA games and has spent most of the rest of his career in China.

    After typing that I wondered why I felt compelled to post that because I couldn't care less about Pistons' doctors. Didn't want a Google search to be wasted, I guess.

    It seems unlikely that the Pistons org has a conspiracy going where they trade for fringe players and fail them on their physical just to tank their value. More likely Motiejunas is just bitter

    I just want to point out that the following people, this season, even after he won an MVP, are repeating my exact take from years ago that Jokic doesn't get the respect/recognition/attention he deserves

    "Jokic doesn't get enough love and attention" in 2022 is generally not the kind of take that gets me to want to listen to someone's stuff.

    Your loss.

    Regardless of whether you agree with it or not, I'm just making the point that it's a position being taken by unbiased guys in the National NBA media. So basically suck my dick and my rep as insecure is undeserved

    Not really. I've taken shit itt for years and I mostly have laughed along with it but I'm just making the point that it's not really accurate. Has nothing to do with insecurity

    Jokic was deservedly the MVP last year

    But his team is mediocre and hovering around play-in tournament territory so, yeah he’s probably not gonna kick off the opening segment of First Take

    Jokic won MVP last year with 91 out of 100 first place votes and has 3M votes this year for starting in the all-star game. That trails only Curry, LeBron, Durant and Giannis. Who are these people who aren't giving him enough respect?

    Saying Jokic is underrated, disrespected or doesn't get enough attention is like the people for 10-15 years who said we don't talk about the Spurs enough. It's just an annoying perspective that makes me want to dislike people who think it.

    I don't particularly care that much that Jokic doesn't get a ton of national media coverage. It happens to a ton of teams and players and is the nature of the garbage way the NBA and sports are covered. That's not the point I'm making.

    Fine, that's all perfectly valid. I'm just saying it's a position some well-respected national NBA coverage guys have taken this year. Which I found to be interesting considering my history of interactions with people itt on this topic.

    Well I didn't check his Twitter follower count. His YouTube channel has 294k subscribers, he's been on a bunch of other prominent nba pods and he has his own podcast that often hosts other well known NBA media guys.

    I'm legitimately surprised people itt haven't heard of him.

    The implication was not intended that you're a casual if you don't know who Ben Taylor is. I was saying that I thought any non-casual NBA fan would know him but that seems to not be the case
