Scott Foster is smelling his own farts again.

A fairly questionable foul call and a ridiculous ejection for Scottie Barnes. I wish the league would do something about this egomaniac.

That "turned to the side, tears coming out its eyes, laughing" emoji is such a tell. It's the official emote of, "I'm not mad, I'm actually laughing!!"

That's a weird tweet, taking shots at guys in the league. Unless it's marketing/buzz for his kid ala Lavar Ball.

Perk is just the worst. Had so many shitty takes on Jokic this past week and just doubles down on his stupid shit.

I hate that guys like Perk and Pat Bev get platforms just because they have radically stupid opinions that will generate views. There are plenty of bright ex-players out there that are so much more entertaining and knowledgeable.

Damn, Warriors lose to OKC while letting them dropped 137 on them.


Idk, I just don’t believe in the warriors this year. I know many in media keep hyping them up as contenders this year, which I understand but I just don’t buy it. I just not afraid of them like I was last year. Could I see them in the WCF or even the finals? Sure but I feel like a lot has to right for them and a lot has to go wrong for other teams (us and the nuggets mainly).

Now OKC has to get on a plane tonight so they can take on the Durant led Suns in Phoenix tomorrow night. Rough.

They’re pretenders without Wiggins and GP2.

These 2 posts should be moved to the “appreciation” thread so we can keep it alive forever.

What happened to Wiggins? I don't remember him getting injured.
