Just a matter of using the correct url for the gif. I got it from the same source you did.
Some image sites have logic that makes it hard to link to their images. Their server checks the "referrer header" to see what site is trying to embed the image, and they block all but a few sites. That may have been the case with the image you tried to use. There's no real way to tell before trying to use the image. Whenever I copy an image URL from some web site to try to use it here, I basically put it into my post, preview it, and see if the image shows up or not in the preview.

I've also noticed that it depends on the device I'm using and linking gifs can take some tweeking.

Tracker should go to 1.1-24 after tonight. Less than five minutes for Beal to get hurt again.

I’m starting to think my guess of 30 was too high…sigh.

They would have to play at least 26 out of the next 47 for you to get there. So a little more than half of the remaining games of the regular season.

New style? More like no style. Big 3…. More like big joke. Such a travesty with the money spent on just those 3 players.

New style for my record tracking, silly. Used to be “(big 3 games) - (non-big-3 games)” now it’s “(big 3 games)/(total games)”. But yeah, I’m with you on the frustration.

Tracker: 9/40

The Big 3 train is picking up steam. The best they can do (not likely) is move into the middle of the largest poll bracket of 63% (42-58) with 51 games together.

I think they’ll end up just under 40. Tomorrow’s game marks the midway point of the season for us and would put them at 10. I feel like 25-30 of the next 41 seems doable. Just really depends if one of them has another significant injury. If they don’t there’s no reason they can’t crank out 30 more games together. I do agree it’s unlikely they’ll hit the 42 group. That only gives 9 games of cushion. 29-41 seems like the winner to me.

It is. See original post. I was asked not to add a new post after every game.

Fine with me if you want to post a new post after every game! But I don't speak for everyone.

Suggestion: If there is NOT going to be a new post after every game, maybe when you update the tracker, do it like this:

"Tracker: X / Y (last updated 1/24/2024 after Suns/Mavs game)"
