And I should own up that I was wrong; I thought they would end up being forced to cancel the season because of bad COVID numbers in Florida. But they've pressed on, and it looks like so far they are keeping things under control. Here's hoping.

Their operation has been impressive from an outsiders view of what they share

Dwight Howard might be the dumbest, least likable player in the NBA.

It's like he never grew up. I can't wait for him to retire and not be relevant anymore.

He came out as an anti-vaxxer and anti-masker and then doubled down with some dumb comment about how "if you have an opinion, don't let anyone convince you otherwise."

This sentence will be the first time Dwight Howard and the word logic have been used together.

I did say something about, I don’t believe in vaccines. And, no, I don’t. And that is my personal opinion.

And everybody that’s out there, man, listen. If you’ve got an opinion on something, don’t let nobody change your opinion on it. Stand down on your 10 toes and believe in it. Don’t let nobody change your thoughts and your opinions and whatever, because those are your thoughts and your opinions.

So, I don’t believe in vaccines myself. Will vaccines work for some people? They may, or they may not. But, for me, I don’t believe in them. And that is my opinion, and I’m going to stick with that.

Yep, even worse when spoken. Yes, it's literal idiocy. Somebody that makes up their mind and refuses to listen to others or learn from their mistakes is a true idiot.

I think the word you’re looking for is conservatism.

Right there with Allen Iverson “practice” speech. No wonder why Kobe and Nash failed to connect with the guy on that Lakers “super” team.

? The Iverson "practice" speech is legendary.

This is more in line with Kyrie's nonsense. I don't know if these guys really mean what they say, if they're looking for attention from the media, or if they think they're being smarter/philosophical with these statements but it's scary when you have so many young fans reading/hearing these things and taking them seriously.

Part of the criticism on Iverson was precisely that it could rub on many young athletes, specially the gifted ones. Of course going from an sports injury to an already critical health situation it’s a complete new level of idiocy, but Allen was a true pioneer on forgetting the role model obligations the players have in front of the microphones ( off court stuff have been present forever, but you know what I mean)

This. One is legendary. The other is the opposite of legendary.
