Is it just me, or do all the Laker players get out of protocols way faster than the 10 days?
LeBron and Russ did. Possible they had false positives because it seems like they both immediately tested negative right after and were cleared. Don’t need 10 days if you are vaccinated and get two consecutive negatives at least 24 hours apart.
My wish list: Nic Batum, Eric Gordon, Larry Nance Jr, Harrison Barnes, PJ Washington, Kenrich Williams, Torrey Craig

Just when the Jazz get put in the top spot in the NBA Power Rankings, they lose at home to the Spurs. And Lakers got blown out by the TWolves. So sad.

Re: the comments from y'day about the Nets
This morning something called The Bridge popped up in my Recommended on YouTube.

Apparently that's an All Access series following them this season. I watch just about anything basketball related so I checked it out mainly cause that episode featured Patty but towards the end Blake was getting too much camera time for me lol.

Made me remember how much I enjoyed the Don't Sleep on Basketball series we did.

He did well when he first got there after leaving us and I was happy for him cause I thought he had decent potential. Interesting move, I haven't seen him much this season though but figure someone will pick him up

Yes, I realize what the policy is, but they seem to be the only team with vaccinated players that get out of protocols 4x faster than every other team. I think this was the 4th Laker player like this.

I was thinking the same thing. Funny how COVID has completely different properties when it is within the boundaries of Los Angeles.

Maybe, I haven’t been paying attention close enough

KD and Evan Mobley in protocols as well. The NBA needs to break for a week or two.

I’ve heard some think that’s exactly what will happen after they get through the Christmas Day games..at this point who’s going to be playing in those games anyways? KD and Giannis May likely be out already.

Should’ve taken the 10 day break leading up to Christmas and started back Christmas Day

Feels like some kind of midseason pause is coming.

Putting how we feel about dude aside
What would the refs have done if the clock got to 16 ?
Still call the 8sec violation ? :lol: :twisted:

One act does not a man make. I hate him with all of my heart. (What's left of it.)

I would have laughed my ass off if the ref he helped up gave him an eight second violation.

What is wrong with @bballbreakdown?! That means they liked him before.

I'd like him more if he showed half the amount of respect to his fellow players.

Looks like the Warriors were forced to play their G league team in Toronto and are getting blown out as a result.

They weren’t forced. They chose.
