LOL, "picking up food at" the strip club, okay.
Maybe some type of seafood?
I was thinking Mexican. Maybe tacos?
Definitely beef. Probably skirt steak.
Fur burger and a side of thighs?

Isaac going bonkers in his return. How badly did we screw up that 2017 draft? Isaac would look phenomenal at the 4 for us.
Tyrese Haliburton • Devin Vassell • Aaron Nesmith • Patrick Williams • Zeke Nnaji • Paul Reed • Tyrell Terry • Desmond Bane

14 Florida Marlins players and coaches have tested positive in the past two days, so it's glaringly obvious how important it is to keep the players isolated from the outside during the season.

I don;t see how the NFL and MLB can hope to have any control over how many players come down with the virus since some of them are going to show poor judgement. The NBA is already experiencing that even though they have their player in a "bubble" isolated from the public.
Some commissioners are making bad decisions. Look at how quickly Silver shut down games for the season (literally within hours of someone testing positive) and how strict his rules were for getting going again. I wonder how much money MLB and the NFL will lose because they haven't done something similar--especially considering they had 4 months to develop a plan. it is crazy.
What NFL did (or didn't do) is unbelievable. I think they really banked on COVID-19 just going away, instead of having to invest the resources into putting a plan together that at least made an attempt to keep players relatively safe. Now they are scrambling at the 11th hour. Sad.

Baseball I think has an advantage in that there is so little contact in the game, and the players are so spread out. Only base running actually involves players getting close. Catchers could wear masks, as could the infielders.

I wouldn't give up on Smith yet. Injury knocked him out for a good portion of his rookie year, and they really haven't tried to incorporate him into the rotation. One issue is that they keep trying to surround non-shooters with...non-shooters.

And then you have Al Horford's atrocious contract...

A league owned and operated by a bunch of old billionaires is out of touch with reality? Who could've guessed?

Key emphasis there. Adam Silver has a clue and the NBA is run by the players more than any other league by a wide margin.

Think they traded that heat pick already...maybe for Tobias? Then that probably got moved to the Thunder in the PG deal? Maybe not though.

Oh, you are probably right. I stopped following that pick after the Suns gave it up and it didn't look like it was going to be worth anything.

If he ever gets healthy...
Sixers guard Zhaire Smith will not travel to Disney World for the resumption of the NBA’s season, according to the team.

Smith has a bone bruise in his left knee. He was experiencing pain in the knee prior to the Sixers resuming workouts last week. He’s expected to make a full recovery.

A first-round pick in 2018, Smith missed most of his rookie season after suffering a Jones fracture in his foot and then dealing with a serious allergic reaction. He’s played in just 13 career NBA games, including seven this season. It seemed unlikely that he'd see meaningful minutes in the eight seeding games or playoffs.

Smith spent the bulk of the year playing in the G-League for the Delaware Blue Coats. The athletic 21-year-old showed signs of improvement. He averaged 13.5 points and hit 37.6 percent of his threes in 28 games with the Blue Coats.

Usually NBA players average above 20 pts per game while in the GLeague, from what I've seen.

He may not be an NBA player. I think it's too soon to tell, but I could be wrong. I'm not worried about him not scoring 20 ppg; he shot 53% from the field.

Even the worst NBA players seem to light it up when they get to the GLeague.

Sorry, it just doesn't bother me that much. If he stunk, I'd be concerned. Quantity is a bit lacking, but the quality was there. It's not enough for me to write him off. If he didn't have anything going for him as a draft prospect, sure, I'd write him off. But he came in with tremendous physical tools, 2-way potential, and a solid 3-point shot. So I can forgive not averaging 20 ppg in 20+ games in the G League.

Fair enough. I had no idea that he still had a stan out there.
