Re: Around the League: Week 20 3/9-3/15

On a different subject, I heard on some podcast that Lauri Markannen wants out of Chicago. Do we want him and for what assets? Personally I'm willing to put up the first round pick this year and maybe Okobo, though I don't know if that's enough for the Bulls. I think he can hold down the starting sp...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I really don't mind being patient with Jerome. I'm not thrilled with drafting yet another PG prospect this year...

Btw how long was Nash's wingspan? Anybody know?

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I get your frustration with giving up on young players. It's a great point. Okobo was an afterthought this year and many thought he was going to be cut in training camp. It didn't help when Jerome rolled his ankle bad before the season, and at that point they couldn't cut Okobo. Okobo is interestin...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

.... I kind of started this discussion with the mentioning of Chriss, Bender, Josh, etc, but I want to get back to my original point again, which is that, if we had invested a first rounder in Jerome last year, I hope we can give him a real chance before we draft another PG in the first round to su...

I told myself if Trump gets re-elected I will look into an Australian or Canadian citizenship... You guys are not helping with this.

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

I don't know if I'm able to separate McDonough from the team, as I for one have no information on whether McDonough truly had free reign to do what he wished or if others were looking over his shoulder, or what not. The only way I can see this is that the organization as a whole has failed miserably...

Re: Coronavirus

I think Fauci pissed off Trump by criticizing and contradicting him at a recent press appearance. Can't criticize dear leader. He'll be off TV now, and probably fired or reassigned shortly thereafter. The death of expertise. As for stopping the quarantine after 15 days / before Easter, that will le...

Re: Coronovirus: When should we be concerned?

I am not a medical professional nor a mask professional, so hopefully I'm not too out of my element here. When COVID-19 first broke out, as one can imagine, there was a lot of false information, and I read up a fair bit on how masks work. My understanding is as follows: 1. N95, as Sauce explained, f...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

With all due respect, I don't know how you can *not* blame this exclusively on the organization. We drafted these players, we then developed them in the wrong way with an environment and coaching staff that clearly did not help them grow, and then we quickly got rid of them. I'm not complaining too...

Re: Coronavirus

I've never posted in this folder before because I've been hesitant to do so as a conservative (I did not vote for Trump, lest I get painted as a racist or who knows what else), but this situation is getting wild to me. I'm lucky where my job isn't really impacted and I can work from home without an...

Re: Coronavirus

How long do you all guess we'll be remote, for those that are now working remotely? I'd guess at least 2 months, likely more. Our savior and genius POTUS seems to think we'll be business as usual and no longer social distancing in 15 days. Talk about someone with blatant disregard for the facts. He...

Re: Coronovirus: When should we be concerned?

I have been calling around town to all local paint stores and hardware stores begging for N95 masks. It’s pathetic. I’m so fucking disappointed in society and these idiots that think they need it and I’m over here exposing myself constantly in the ER and we are rationing one mask per shift and in a...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

Yeah, kinda of the same verdict about those three. We failed miserably developing Bender (perhaps a complete lack of intend), handled the keys too early to Chriss, wich mess up his head big time and blunt his development because of a shallow sense of entitlement and Jackson... oh my... what a train...

Re: Ways to deal with NBA withdrawal during the COVID-19 hiatus

I watched this Spanish movie on a long flight, about a college bball coach who had to coach a team of mentally impaired players. It marginally qualifies as a basketball movie and it was a great movie. Shed a few tears at the end. I don't remember the name of the movie though... I also saw the uncle ...

Re: NBA FA 2020 & Suns FA targets

This might seem wild, but one scenario that has me intrigued is the following(but I admit highly unlikely): 2. Buy a draft pick in the 2nd round and draft Arturs Zagars. I am not sure that he will even be drafted or will keep his name in the draft, but I really like this kid from Latvia. He's much ...

Re: Coronovirus: When should we be concerned?

I think that's fair, but the assumption is, hopefully, that people wash hands properly. Unless you work in a hospital that treats infected people the chances of your hands touching services contaminated with enough virus to be able to infect you at any moment is relatively low. My friend that I ment...

Re: Coronovirus: When should we be concerned?

I actually don't think caregivers will be hit *that* hard because they are all well educated on how to protect themselves and will be the first to get a supply of medical equipment to help protect them. I don't mean that everyone should stock up 3 months worth of masks... been saying since the first...

Re: Coronavirus

One thing about the Trump presidency that was most scary for me is the "false news" narrative. His most ardent support base will believe that there was a legitimate reason for all of these things that we conclude are due to Trump's mismanagement. Those 43% that Indy mentioned will believe that this ...
