That's good for me the basketball fan but I hope it works out. Really happy it hasn't hit our squad thus far.
It's a matter of time. If you are traveling that much and being around that many people, you're going to get it. I'm a little worried that all the good scrub players will already be signed when we have our inevitable stretch without 7 of our players.

I am betting the league will allow players to play with it if they are vaccinated and boosted pretty soon. Hopefully we avoid it at least until then.

Hopefully. If not, it would be better to get hit with it now than in May. The “good” news is that Book and CP3 have already had bouts with COVID, so they may be spared from an outbreak.

Omnicron is genetically 3% different. Same difference between humans and chimps. Prior infection to covid has an increased risk for omnicron. I’m just thinking in terms of missed games or any potential long covid symptoms following mild symptoms.

The way the team mindset is, I really think most of them got their booster shots by now. I got mine yesterday.

Chriss and Knight.

Knights sudden inability to play nba basketball was always strange to me. I know we joked about the almost an all star in the East stuff, but he was pretty good until he came to us and then progressively got worse.
My wish list: Nic Batum, Eric Gordon, Larry Nance Jr, Harrison Barnes, PJ Washington, Kenrich Williams, Torrey Craig

Wonder how many guys they'll have in protocols for the 12/25 game against us?

Does any player better sum up Ryan McDonough’s tenure than Brandon freakin’ Knight ..

I've had one eye on the Nuggets/Thunder game tonight and OKC is absolutely crushing them. I think they'll give the Suns a tough game tomorrow night.

McD thought he was playing 4D chess by giving Knight the max extension before the new CBA kicked in. Because when the new CBA numbers kicked in, Knight would be a BARGAIN and teams would lining up to trade for him.

He knew everything you needed to know except the most important thing - being able to identify talent.

Len, Chriss, Bender, Jackson .. good riddance to the man.

Yeah, those are 4 of the big ones when I think of McDo. The Bender/Chriss draft was a tough one. Then you have Josh Jackson and Alex Len, such a waste of so many top-10 first round draft picks. When you look at the other guys who were available each of those years, we could have drafted a freaking All-Star team if he had picked right.

Every GM gets a bad break on a draft pick or two, but that record is abysmal, no two ways about.

The irony that he selected Booker means I can’t hate the guy, I guess.

Speaking of bad draft picks, Tyrese Haliburton has been killing it lately. Painful to watch.

What made the Chriss pick horrible was that we had to trade Bogie to get him. We could’ve picked any other dud and still been ahead.

He was as obvious a pick at 10 last year as Booker was when he was picked 13.
