The Clippers weren't easy last year either but we can take them out again.

Clearly JVG is reading Flagrant Fowl's posts on phx-suns.net.

ESPN’s Jeff Van Gundy Predicts Covid Outbreaks Will Force the NBA to Require a ‘Pause’ or ‘Bubble’
https://www.mediaite.com/sports/espns-j ... or-bubble/
“I really feel that at some point there’s gonna be a pause to our season, a bubble to our season,” Van Gundy said during ESPN’s Wednesday night NBA broadcast. “The way they’re predicting these cases to continue to go… I don’t see any way around it.”
I'll add that I think the only reason they're playing games right now is because they want to make it to Christmas Day. That's the biggest day on the NBA schedule besides the playoffs, so I expect we'll see the season put on pause immediately after Christmas.

I really hate that the Nets use that court and those jerseys from the 90s. They were awful then and are worse now. Nets are trying to "reconnect" with their history but since they've been in Brooklyn it feels like they keep trying these gimmicks. I'm sure they're selling merch and making money, but it's just odd seeing that "jersey devil" font in Brooklyn. They seem desperate to establish some kind of identity.

I think I've read that they have had low ticket sales and attendance at their games despite being #1 in the East. Is that true?

I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s hard being the little brother in a big market.

They've struggled with attendance since they've been in Brooklyn. It's unfortunate because they've got the stars and KD's been playing out of his mind lately.

I wonder how long it'll take for Kyrie to end up in COVID protocol.

I'm losing track of all this stuff but I know for sure DeMar been out a while and Russ just recently went into protocols
So is it that Russ is fully vaxxed and only needed two negatives in 24hrs while DeMar had to do 10 days ?

Is it just me, or do all the Laker players get out of protocols way faster than the 10 days?
