GSW have been getting rid of players who aren't willing to buy into their system. Oubre is the main example. Galloway is a really talented offensive player, but he seems like he just goes out there and does his own thing without regard for the rest of the team.

He was just on a training camp deal, it’s not a surprise he was waived.

Easy on the vax stuff please, guys. I don't want to be dunking on the vax issue in here because it'll just turn into an argument.

And maybe save lives but OK. Van Gundy has a good point. People who "do their own research" are not scientists in their own labs. They are common people at the mercy of what sites they read and believe and they are a product of the people they hang out with. Listen to the science from real scientists who make their living to know this stuff.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

It's actually not a valid point at all. Van Gundy is making a logical fallacy by equating the categories of "secondary research" and "primary research." Nobody is claiming to do their own primary research. Secondary research could include considering the statements of scientists who may differ from other scientists. That is certainly not less valid than the secondary research conducted by most people, who only consider the statements of scientists who are pro-Covid vaccination. Critical thinking and personal freedom should always be encouraged, and not shut down. I agree with Devin Booker on that.

Now that we've breached this barrier, noting Mori's warning...I have to say something.

You can always find one or two scientists waaaay outside the mainstream that contratians will cite as evidence that the scientific consensus is wrong. Cherry picking for such outliers isn't good secondary research.

Back to basketball...

Everyone is welcome to save lives and talk about vaccine politics in the General or Politics sections.

It gets a little trickier when it crossed over into the NBA but I get it.
