The latest on Kyrie from Shams Charania, via Lakers Nation because Athletic articles are behind a paywall: Right off the bat, I’m suspicious of this story. So let me get this straight: the Nets love Kyrie now? After they wouldn’t offer him a max contract without first loading it up with caveats and incentives? I… Read More Kyrie Staying in Brooklyn? Lakers Moving on to Hield and Turner?
This video is very well made and exposes Woj for what he is: a PR mouthpiece for his friends around the league. And a first-rate LeBron hater. I never knew about all his Yahoo columns about LeBron from the 2000s. Wow. Woj might be a bigger LeBron hater than Skip and Screamin’ A Smith. I… Read More Woj Is a Snake
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Nets’ preference right now is to simply run it back with the roster they have. This is why there haven’t been any trades despite KD requesting out in early July. This is the reason the Nets don’t like any of the offers that have been made for both KD… Read More The Nets Are in Denial

I compiled numbers for both the regular season and playoffs. What we are looking at here is total points scored in… Read More Who’s the Clutch King of the NBA?
I don’t think KD’s request that’s the Nets fire Steve Nash and Sean Marks is the full story. I wrote a post over a month ago, right when KD first demanded a trade out of Brooklyn, that I thought KD was trying to “break up” with Kyrie without actually explicitly saying or doing so—in other… Read More More Evidence KD Wants out of Brooklyn Because of Kyrie
So KD has not backed off his trade request, and he has made his demands clearer: I am not sure why KD specifically wants Nash and Marks fired. It probably explains it in the Athletic article but I’m not paying for to read it. ESPN is not reporting it at all. There’s nothing about this… Read More KD Delivers Ultimatum to Nets Owner Joe Tsai: Either Fire Steve Nash & Sean Marks, or Trade Me
So the verdict is in. 6 games it is. Additional details: no further fine, Watson must get all massages from team masseuses. Apparently the NFL can appeal this decision for additional games tacked on to the suspension if it wishes, and it has I believe 3 days to do so, but it has not signaled… Read More DeShaun Watson Has Been Suspended for 6 Games
