  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Coming to post the same. This photo doesn't represent just how stupid it looks in action, especially because the Nike yellow looks so pale on TV.
  2. NBA Changes 2017-18

    This is ridiculous:
  3. NBA Changes 2017-18

    It's way too bright. They look like knock-offs.
  4. WWE Hell in a Cell/Tables, Ladders, and Chairs

    This is the first time I've felt compelled to watch WWE programming since after SummerSlam when I canceled WWEN.
  5. My Vision for the Future of the NBA

    I wouldn't sell you 1/3 of a pizza so why would I sell you 1/3 of a basketball experience?
  6. My Vision for the Future of the NBA

    Huh. I feel like unless you're an Orlando Magic fan, there's a reason to watch the games. Only two or three teams have a chance at winning the title (okay, barring injury only one), but the product is at least interesting night in, night out. I also recognize that not every general sports fan buys NBA League Pass and spends hours on NBA Reddit, so I'm totally biased.
  7. My Vision for the Future of the NBA

    Because I'd rather the NBA hashtag for trans rights than take money from the military to make Donald Trump look good. You and I both agree that there's no economic justice in this country, and that brands are certainly not our friends. However, we still can benefit from better conversations on social issues, and sometimes the ends do justify the means. I'd rather a woke Burger King than an antigay Chick Fil A.
  8. My Vision for the Future of the NBA

    Eh. You mock how "woke" the NBA is, but I'd prefer that to the alternative. Yeah, it's self aggrandizing and wrapped up in corporate sponsorship, but players are getting paid, people aren't dying, and women aren't getting beaten. Sometimes it's okay to dial back the cynicism; especially at a time when I think cultural cues may be more important than ever. There's no walking back politics intermixed with everything. Especially the people running our political landscape actively seek to find points of division. If my sports leagues need to choose a side, I'd prefer they chose the right one.

    Last word on the Pats: Eff them and their whiny fans. Marshawn Lynch remains a national treasure
  10. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I'll say this about Ingram -- he isn't afraid to a.) keep on shooting or b.) go to the rim. He doesn't get any calls at all -- probably because he's still rail-thin, but I admire his persistence. And yeah, he has the basic look of Durant as a rookie, but not nearly as natural a scorer. Durant was incredible back at Texas; Ingram was good at Duke. Ingram is still young and has time, but Durant was scoring 25 PPG in year two. I don't see that for Ingram, even as they're giving him the greenest of all possible lights.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Yeah, their new set actually looks quite nice. Good on Nike for polishing that logo turd. The Lakers uniform is way too pale yellow. Nike's colors are kind of all over the place. They've done fine with blue, but the Celtics green is too bright and the Lakers yellow is too light. That's not good for two of the league's signature franchises.
  12. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Someone's got to bring the look back. The only baby Laker who seems to be worth a damn tonight is Nance. Clarkson too. Hard to tell with Lonzo; he'll have easier nights than Patrick Beverly. The Clips also might actually be good.
  13. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Lonzo getting boards like a champ...and not much else. Also, maybe Ingram shouldn't have been untouchable in the off-season. Yikes.

    Pats fans, enjoying the greatest modern professional football dynasty, continue the grand tradition of Boston sports fans wanting both adulation for winning and commiseration for past losing and moderately inconvenient slights. They're simultaneously the sorest winners and losers at the same time, unmatched in any other sports or fanbase. Everyone agrees your team is great. No one needs to hear your complaining because you have nothing to complain about.
