    Wow, thanks heavens you were sent to help us all become enlightened. I'll be sure to fire up a Ben Shapiro podcast, as I recall he is one of your esteemed thought leaders.

    I hope Frazier can become prime Pippen because why not? Don't want to put a ceiling on him.

    Anyone have a hypothesis as to why one team would have to shoulder the burden of taking on both "home" games? There are 3 teams playing a total of 2 games. Couldn't 2 teams each be the home team once to share the hassle?
  4. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    So the big announcement is we're "hosting" two regular season "home games" in Mexico City in December. Kinda sucks that 2 of our home games will be, like, not actually at home.

    I haven't been down voting anyone. Sorry to disappoint you. TIL you can cyber bully someone by quoting their own words. If you find it offensive that I remembered your Steve Harvey opinion several months later, maybe don't post your demonstrably absurd beliefs on a public forum? You can and should be held accountable for the things you say.

    We're in the most uneventful portion of the offseason. Nothing is happening Magic-related or really NBA-related at this point. That was the only NBA storyline yesterday and deserves discussion.

    Maybe you should read the specifics. It's a public school.
  8. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I am struggling so hard to understand your argument here.
  9. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    What does going "beyond this" mean? What is your cutoff for an intervention that would be worthy of credit?
  10. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Isn't that exactly what makes it amazing -- that he actually did something? The expectation you described is ideal, but as you're alluding to, not often enacted. Based on your point that rich people should be doing stuff like this, but generally don't, doesn't it make it all the more impactful to see someone actually use their wealth this way? It's a pretty jaded reaction to scoff and say it's no big deal that those poor kids now have this opportunity.

    Yeah in hindsight I only wrote one sentence of my own so "dripping with sarcasm" is a mischaracterization. But yeah, I think it is an unbelievable achievement and commitment. I find people who denigrate LeBron as a person simply because they don't like his behavior on a basketball court to be narrow-minded. This is a public school that he worked to open so that less fortunate kids can have a safe place to learn and have fun -- incredible.
  12. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    My post was dripping with sarcasm and not my own views. I agree with you.
  13. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Too bad he's still not setting as good of an example for kids as Steve Harvey.
  14. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    what a goober
  15. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    With the archetype of gigantic, slow, lumbering centers who can't shoot having almost no value anymore, I wouldn't count on him ever being an NBA player.

    As someone whose work station is located directly in the center of a 24-bed inpatient Orthopaedics unit at one of the country's foremost academic medical centers, I can tell you that the spin of "actually, this 2nd spinal surgery is great" is ludicrous. I am worried about him being in an NBA rotation 3 years down the line. It's why I haven't quite understood all the "Denver got a STEAL at 14!!!!" talk, because I'm not sure you could have convinced me to spend a 1st round pick on him. At some point the risk is too great, and this is an applicable case. I would be shocked if MPJ's best-case scenario exceeds average spot-up shooter.
  17. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Should be Orlando. I don't see how Chicago will be able to defend well enough to win more than 30 games; and their offense shouldn't be potent enough to offset how many points they give up. We should in theory defend well enough to give ourselves a shot to win games where our offense is subpar.
  18. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Zero people responded to your post. Didn't you recently chastise people for not being as enlightened as you, claiming you were a cosmic nihilist or something? Wouldn't a cosmic nihilist do the exact opposite of posting annoying, repetitive diatribes against a random athlete they don't like?
  19. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Listening to Joel Myers/David Griffin SiriusXM show from sometime last week. They're discussing something interesting about the Lavine deal that I haven't heard or seen discussed yet: Apparently SAC included some sort of pre-existing injury exemption into their offer sheet, which essentially means that Lavine's money becomes non-guaranteed if he misses significant time due to the knee or a reaggravation of the injury. Griff goes on to say that this essentially guaranteed that Chicago would match it because SAC made it much more palatable for them to do so; he added that the obvious idea of an offer sheet is to make it difficult to match, but in this instance the Kings just made it easier.

    This is unrelated to your specific point but this is a good opportunity for me to comment on the most annoying part of this entire rebuild being when Portland fans would chime to make fun of us too as if we gave them franchise altering talents. Thunder fan: Lol remember when the Magic traded Oladipo for Ibaka? Idiots. Pistons fan: Yeah, and they got nothing for Tobias Harris! Magic fan: We've done some pretty dumb ****, yeah. Portland fan: OMG and remember when they gave us Shabazz Napier for like nothing at all!!!!!!!! Remember?!?!?!?!

    This is like telling a baby not to put random objects into its mouth.

    I would for real trade Vooch for Jack Cooley.
  23. Summer League Thread

    Frazier has 0 BBIQ. Ayton is good. Okobo looked pretty awful. These are my takes. Goodnight.
  24. Summer League Thread

    Yeah, sorry. The main portion of that post was still addressing the other guy's comment about Bamba clearly being the right choice 2 games in. Didn't mean to make it seem like I was correcting you in that aspect. Fair enough on Jackson. I feel like top 5 was warranted for him, but I do agree with one of your prior posts that he will have some growing pains. The potential is there but he does have a lot to learn.
