    I could have landed us Ben Gordon a few years ago. He came in every day he was in town and bought like 10 pops a day for him and his kid.

    They shout out TMB, a lot of ransoms show up, join, make intro threads, get called fucking losers and accosted with inside jokes, leave, and business as usual continues.

    The illustrious Magic trio of Gordon, Tobias Harris, and Kyle O'Quinn added like 50k to my revenues. Fuck the Magic for dumping them, we suck anyhow.

    Simmons posted himself golfing today on Instagram. His kid provided commentary on a par putt. “The worlds biggest pussy going again.”

    Gave me a laugh.

    I would have never of dreamed of doing that or even viewed my dad as a pussy. His daughter seems like a smart, respectful teenager and he just lets his son be a wild man and let him watch rated R movies when he was 4-5 years old.

    well I didn't think my dad was a pussy, but yeah, even if I didn't put it on the internet that would not have flown. kinda confirms his kid's statement tbh.

    Do people actually rewatch old games? I might check for a certain moment on YouTube but I don't think I've ever sat through an entire game after it actually happened, just don't see the point. Even if I wanted to see a favorite memory I'd just cue up the Artest 3 in Game 7 for 30 seconds and then move on to something else

    I've re-watched FSU national title games they've won a few times as well as some FSU vs UF/Miami in the 90s.

    During the season I usually will re-watch FSU games the day or two after if they win.

    often times i fast forward to the good parts and put on one in the background. i also never watch highlight compilations.

    I got pretty drunk and watched the first half of game 1 of the 93 finals on YouTube around Christmas. That's about all i've got on this front.

    Yeah I’m not sure I’m liking the Rewatchables, sports edition. Movies you watch over and over so scenes, and lines, stick out. Listening them describe what happened on a game 3 years ago, without video accompanying it, isn’t all that compelling imo.

    May work better on the Ringer YouTube channel or maybe on Twitter like what SB Nation has donw.

    agree it'd work better as a youtube show so they could actually show the plays they're talking about. i can't imagine that any non-GS fan has caught a rewatch of that game and can remember any of these specific plays.

    Here’s an example of SB Nation’s Rewinder that’s similar to what Simmons is doing. Maybe if he did a video series he’d be afraid of being accused of copying them, but the podcast fell flat i thought.

    Game 7 WCF 2000 vs Blazers I’ve rewatched the 4th quarter
    I’ve watched the end of that Kings Lakers game where Horry hit the shot a bunch of times. Wouldn’t want to watch the entire game because they were getting rolled in the first half if memory serves. Generally though, no I don’t rewatch games and certainly not an entire game.

    I really only rewatch college football games like when ESPN or BTN air classic games or the top 25 games of the year thing. They usually air those in Late July/August when I’m dying for football

    I did watch the 86 masters when they released it on youtube a few years ago. I was too young to see it live but I enjoy when Augusta National drops some old footage.

    Zach Lowe said on his podcast that he heard the same things that Bill did re: Dolan. Sort of doubt he sells the Knicks if the price tag is really 5 billion.
