    Probably a discussion more suited for the Covid thread, but will say several that I work with are anti covid vaccine and claim they’re “vaccinated by Jesus Christ” or some shit and our employer is like nah, and they’re being told to get it or you’re leaving

    Jokic seems to have lost the dad bod, I’m no longer a fan, all my support goes to team Luka now.

    The nets have 35 roster spots and seemingly no fear of insane luxury tax. Honestly I respect it

    Whether they should or shouldn't is a different story, but it would make no sense for the Warriors to pick players at 7 and 14, and then trade them a month or two later because their value is worse now than it was before the draft. I don't really see the point of that reporting.

    meh...I read it more as Golden State saying "you had your chance Morey, don't come calling when you get desperate" that being said, I freely admit I've become emotionally compromised by the Simmons situation because of Dame/CJ reasons and I could be way off

    I wanted Milsap in Chicago in a reserve role... Would also take LaMarcus but apparently BK is just going to take all the big men left on the market.

    I don't see why would Simmons want to raise his trade stock? If you want to win, it's better to go to a team that doesn't trade away all of its good players so you're not stuck on a terrible team.

    He's mostly washed but probably a solid enough 4th big. He's still a rock on defense and his 3 ball is decent.

    I consider our bench front court to be fairly significantly improved with Jeff Green replacing him, if that helps

    Yea yall did good. Jeff Green is a baller undersized but a good defender made like 40 % of his 3s and even at this stage of his career will attempt at least 3 dunks a game where he tries to end the defenders life. He along with KD were the sole reasons we beat the Bucks in game 5 . I'm sad we lost him but I pretty much see it as getting both Milsap and Patty Mills to replace him. So 15 min a night is all we'll need from Millsap with Blake Claxton and Aldridge also filling in at the 4-5.

    Isn’t this the norm for the LA teams? I thought they always get a bunch of early home games so when award season rolls around they are on the road.

    I'm surprised Juancho has any trade value at all tbh.
