    Scott Brooks is not good. Fix that first. The Wizards hold on to bad coaches for way too long. Scott Brooks has never accomplished anything worth this long of a leash.

    Weird that Rice is exempt from "stick to sports." Because if you have any opinions about America's preparation for or response to 9/11, you have an opinion about Condoleeza Rice.

    This, like the Prince uniform, just seems so try-hard to me. It's a quick trip from these to all of those "quirky" minor league baseball uniforms. We're a year or two away from Star Wars Houston Rockets or Twinkies Golden State Warriors or a Trail Blazers version of this:

    If You Ruled The World of Sports

    If everything is special then nothing is. Like NBA, I don't understand some people's fascination with "fixing" the regular season. Teams play a bunch of games in conference and fewer out of conference. Why is that bad? If you live in Phoenix, you get to see Kyrie once a year. That's pretty cool. And also sometimes you get random things like the Wolves and Magic having an awesome game. I think the serendipity you can find in a long regular season is a good thing. Why make everything Super Intense all the time?

    Well, yeah, it would have to be Lonzo+. But he would be the heart of the deal. Lillard is 28 now, so probably has five good years left? Lonzo has 12 and would be there after LeBron. If it were me, I'd keep Ball. But it's not me, and LeBron isn't patient.

    MLS Kits 2019

    The black Seattle set was probably their nicest alt: They looked awesome with those green shorts. It's amazing a team with Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins and DeAndre Yedlin didn't win a title.

    You forgot to post his Bengals thong. Hammer was in a weird place then. EDIT: Link for the curious.
  9. I mentioned in my Bill Simmons thread that we could benefit from a sport media thread. Well here it is! This is where you discuss sports media, link to Awful Announcing stories, post Gus Johnson clips, and more. I've been looking for a place to discuss Gawker vs. Hogan, and this is good as any. After too many days' silence, Gawker finally spoke up: http://gawker.com/the-hogan-verdict-1766460791 If Hulk Hogan's penis is the hill they wanted to die on, they deserve what they can get. This is the exceptionally bad opinion from Nick Denton's post: "If only you hadn't read what we posted, we wouldn't be in this mess!" No one wanted to see Hulk Hogan have sex, and Heather Cole definitely didn't want the world to see her have sex. That Hogan is a public figure or that he said embarrassing racist things is irrelevant; there's no public right to know about the sex lives of others.

    This is one of those times where you're confusing imagined racism for actual racism being done by people who aren't white liberals.

    Exactly. The Lakers jerseys are overdesigned. Drop the black racing stripe, ditch the pinstripes, and you've got a solid set.

    Yes, the Clips have become a really fun, professional team. It's a welcome change of pace from the latter-day Lob City crybaby Clippers. The Lakers are going to make a move this season. Rondo just broke his hand, so Lonzo is probably safe for a little while longer. But if there's a Lonzo-for-Lillard move out there, LA will take it. But when Hart and Ingram were once expendable, I think both are less so now. LA is now undefeated with Chandler. And, in fact, Chandler and McGee have been an incredible center duo - the Lakers don't give up much inside and their offensive rebounding is really good. The Lakers are finally picking up wins against Western Conference teams they should be beating and that's good; they're going to need all of them by April.

    Lakers look like they're beginning to figure it out.

    So on TV....I don't hate them. It might be because I hate their black-striped purple set so much that I'm open to something less severe. But as an alt, it fits in the family of the old Hollywood Nights set and the pinstripes aren't noticeable on TV. As a fan, I'm a fan.

    Not only is it 10 (20?) years too late, it's also embarrassing.

    Deadspin is on the case: https://deadspin.com/malcolm-gladwell-goes-on-bill-simmonss-podcast-deliver-1830449233 The upshot is eventually all of the Caribbean and Africa = Nigeria. But it starts like this! So hopefully we can be good on Malcolm Gladwell's?

    I'm three minutes into Macolm Gladwell's theory of the World Eugenics Basketball League on the Simmons podcast and I'm deeply uncomfortable. EDIT: It's actually more stupid than offensive.

    I also like the current Revs logo. And the fact that it's stuck around for 20 years in defiance of all logical sense. Can you imagine if the Rapids were still using this bad boy?

    I've been a huge Montrezl Harrell fan since he was at Louisville and dunked on everyone, and it's really cool to see him getting big minutes with the Clippers. He was a throw-in in that trade with Houston, but he's realizing his potential. Put him on a team like the Celtics and he'd be a folk hero.

    I only regret he couldn't make me more money. Perhaps when he resurfaces in Arizona or the never time Minnesota hits a down cycle.

    I have a personal bias toward blue and orange and love the colors together. I think the Cleveland script is pretty nice, and I think the colors are balanced well. Plus their regular uniform is just the worst, so their City set is a welcome deviation.

    MLS Kits 2019

    My first instinct is to defend Seattle, but then I forgot it really is a stupid logo. Overlapping shields and a Space Needle is so low effort. I hope they rebrand soon; they'll definitely sell a bunch of new stuff.

    This is so obviously the worst MLS logo of all time: And I also like the NYRB logo. Sue me.

    I'm not a fan of any Eastern conference team. I just don't like the unearned Heinke hagiography. The man pursued a simple idea that was only executed to its full potential by people who knew what they were doing.
