  1. Basketball games have always been at risk of dragging at the end (especially at the college level), but some of these reviews are just obnoxious.
  2. I always thought Kawhi wanting to team up with George was weird. I gotta flaunt my correctness in predicting failure because I thought for sure that Trae Young would be a total flop but it turns out I would actually be a bad NBA GM.
  3. I can forgive missing. Not even getting the ball out of your hands though? That's just embarrassing.
  4. If there's one thing I can't possibly care about in sports, it's the concern over the television ratings. I just tuned in to see that free throw choke job and inbounds alley-oop, so as far as I know this is the best game ever.
  5. Sometimes I loathe the sport of basketball. Now is not one of those times.
  6. Part of my likes the idea of the NBA finally getting their wish for an LA-NY finals as the monkey's paw finger curls.
  7. You're good, I'm not gonna try and make you believe that 2 + 2 isn't 4.
  8. Pretty standard stuff really. We had tons of NFL teams using Los Angeles as a threat to get what they wanted locally for a few decades. I vaguely recall the Saints using San Antonio as a potential threat as well. Without LA on the table now we have to settle for weird stuff like Toronto or London now. Or like, St. Louis I guess.
  9. I hadn't even thought of a hypothetical world in which the AAF got through that first season. Even if XFL2 hadn't arrived, it seems unlikely that they would have survived COVID. I wouldn't mind seeing some of the AAF brands revitalized someday, especially the Apollos. Maybe we'll get a long-running spring league before the next generation realizes that football should die.
  10. If it weren't for live sports I wouldn't have cable. So I'm hosed. I remember as a kid watching SportsCenter until it would repeat to watch highlights. The internet has completely changed that though. SportsCenter probably has a purpose for somebody, but for me I just look at highlights whenever I want instead of waiting for SC to cycle back through if I missed something. Even the pregame shows do nothing for me at this point. There's better pregame analysis written somewhere that I can easily read now. Part of this is the internet and part of it is probably just my personal tastes changing.
  11. The XFL and its revival combined for less than two seasons of football. I'm willing to say it could have worked the second time around, but y'know, global pandemic and all that. So maybe not their fault, who knows how that would have worked out. The NASL though? That league died years ago, before the pandemic, having achieved the heights of being roughly as relevant as the USL. Is that a revival done right? More importantly, does the USFL brand have enough cachet to really matter at this point? The league was birthed and killed before I was born and I'm in my 30's. I know about the USFL because I'm a nerd that's read all about it and heard stories from my dad of his time going to Showboats games. I even took all of his USFL pennants and hung them up in my room when I was younger. But is it a name that football fans my age and younger actually care about?
  12. The difference is that the Raiders moved the other times because of stadium issues. They were dissatisfied with the situation in Oakland, then the situation in Los Angeles, and then again in Oakland. In Las Vegas they've finally gotten their fancy new stadium. If they had moved there with the promise of a new stadium while stalling at Sam Boyd Stadium, then they would be a threat to move again.
  13. I thought it was dumb too, but then shamelessly, my team made the playoffs when they shouldn't have. Of course I can understand people's frustration that the Memphis Grizzlies of all teams are the greatest play-in team ever. The Grizzlies have twice as many play-in wins as any other team! Historic levels of dominance!
  14. I go back and forth on my preference between white or gold pants for Washington's burgundy jerseys. I think it's just based on which one I haven't seen as recently. I don't know.
  15. Just because those are the only guys you can name doesn't mean the teams are bad. For one, Jonas Valunciunas is far more important to the Grizz than Brooks, and Jaren Jackson Jr. is arguably better than him too. These were also two teams with winning records, it's not like this is the East.
