2019 NBA Summer season

Recommended Posts

So Pelicans forward Darius Miller moved in just around the corner from my house, and then proceeds to rupture his Achilles tendon in a 3 on 3 game. He will be out 7-8 months.

 

I'm beginning to think my neighborhood is bad luck for professional athletes.  Back in 2016 James Laurinaitis moved in across the street and two houses down; he injured his quadriceps and was later waived by the Saints and then retired.

Turkey choked against the USA.  Wow.  Up 2 and missed 4 consecutive FTs.

 

Giannis chocked against Brazil earlier. Nuts way to start the day (or end it, or whatever).

 

Is Jayson Tatum good? I saw a lot of chucking from him in the quarter I watched.

He hurt his ankle in the last possession in OT.

I saw that. Bummer for him and for Team USA -- maybe. I don't really see why he has the green light he does.

The playoffs 2 years ago he took over for the Celtics is why.

And the playoffs one year ago is why those rights should be rescinded.

 

Tatum might not actually be that good. Remember when he could have been flipped for Kawhi and Boston said no? Whoops.

Tatum is serviceable, but he definitely isn't that franchise player that is going to carry the team. 

In hindsight, yeah, Ainge was far too stingy with his assets. 

 

But at the same this, this is also a Celtics team that made consecutive Conference finals only to run in Lebron.

2018 they should have beat him, it's embarrassing they choked that so hard.

Thanks, Team USA.

 

Donovan Mitchell took all the d@mn shots.

And it got worse. Worst finish by any American team in any International tournament ever is assured.

Sean Livingston retired today. His knee exploded like a damn bomb early in his career and then he worked his way back from almost losing his leg to being a relatively big part of the Warriors dynasty and walks away (pun sort of intended) with three titles. Hard to top a turnaround like that. He ended up being one of my favorites.

What are the chances this becomes a reality?

That is a steaming of HECK NO. Imagine just telling your kids, “hey kids we gotta go to the Miami heat game at the bang bros arena” “Dad? What is bang bros?” Unlike American Airlines or Chase or State Farm, that is a very hard question to answer,

He could be, if he would just attack the ****ing basket instead of pulling up for dumbass fadeaways. He was doing it in 2018 and it helped drive us to within a game of the finals. Last season he decided he'd rather be a bad Melo. This is his make or break year coming up.

 

Some Celtics coaching staff we got. An entire season went by without them being able to fix the bad habits Tatum picked up from grabbing Wendy's with Kobe last summer.

It's an action movie studio, kids.
(Technically not a lie.)

It's a publicity stunt that worked. That's all.

 

EDIT: Though if Bang Bros has $10 million to spend on naming rights, I'm wondering how their talent is paid. As far as I know, actors are paid per scene, without residuals. If I knew the company I was filming for had sports sponsorship money, I'd be asking for more on the back end. (literally no pun intended, but there it is.)

But with the technology we have these days, you KNOW they are going to do some digging. with one google search, they could be scarred forever.
