    I think the alternative is stop having these awards impact potential contract value

    i agree with that part, but you’d still have the awards. So does he want the players to vote? Which players? Are players somehow free of bias?

    Bill claiming to watch a lot of (non Celtics) games while simultaneously having shitty takes and incoherent rules for all nba was funny and sadly great support for Draymonds pov.

    Haralabob isn’t conning people out of their money as far as I know (other than maybe crypto amateurs) so Sharp wins

    Bill on Dwight Howard in 2007

    Because he’s a devout Christian, even when he turns 35 in 2020, those will be Christian years — he won’t have any of that smoking-drinking-partying mileage on him, which means he could play at a high level until his early-40s (much like how Kurt Warner keeps chugging along at age 36). In other words, Howard could and should shatter nearly every rebounding record if he stays healthy, and even if he averages a 23-13 for the next 12 years (a conservative guess), when you throw in his previous three seasons, Howard would suddenly be in striking distance of two-thirds of the conceivable NBA records that ever meant anything. And to think, just seven months ago, I wasn’t sure if he was better than Al Jefferson

    Football is about to be dead to Bill too after another lackluster Patriots draft. They might be the worst team in the division within a couple years.

    don't know what you mean by "Ringer Producer," but Bryan Curtis is much more than that.

    Regardless, it was embarrassing. Bill just wanted to talk about this specific instance of aggregation and, to do so, made it look like he wanted to have some big picture discussion on aggregation that has been going on for a decade+ on the internet.

    On the latest NFL Draft podcast 1 of the podcasters states “Solak sounds like how I imagine Mark Twain sounded like”. And now I’ll always picture Mark Twain when i hear Solak on a podcast.

    She mentioned a couple former buckeyes that play overseas and then said “I know Kobe Bryant but he is no longer alive”
