Don’t know why they don’t do it formally, it’s finally happened with heights at least

I think they have an open relationship.

Is he meddling again and that's the real reason they lost?

Maybe he had a talk with the team before the game. That would explain the loss.

Just being reminded that they’re ultimately playing for him has got to be demoralizing.

He has been wise to keep a lower profile lately. NBA owners shouldn't be central on-stage figures for their teams. Put good people in charge of the front office and then step back.

Hard to find billionaires/near billionaires that don't crave the limelight and attention. So if things are going well after years of a s*** show, you know he is going to come out and test the waters.

It's almost like Sports teams should be owned by the people of the city and not by one Owner.

I would love nothing more than he can have the spotlight when he's handed the trophy by the commissioner. Otherwise, stay out of the way and do everything you can to help and not hinder the team.

We need to beat Brooklyn on Sunday as the Lakers will be tough to beat. I sure hope we can avoid a three game losing streak or worse after our excellent start.

I think we'll be fine, we had two "all stars" run hot against us and we still showed the same resiliency through out.
We got a taste of our own medicine for sure with their intensity and D but don't see that being the case against BK. They just wanna get up n down the court

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Green Bay Packers
I am not sure about the NBA, but the NFL rules don't allow a team to be owned by more than 32 people and at least one of them has to have at least a 30% share. The rules were made after Green Bay was already owned by a public non-profit corporation set up nearly 100 years ago.

Just like you can’t buy land and own the mineral rights to that land anymore. At least not in ND. You have to be grandfathered in or forget it. I’ll always have a soft spot for the Packers because they are owned for the most part by the people.

Thanks. Turned it on for the last 2:30. James Jones bought 200 tickets for the fans. Lot's of kids having a ball.
