WOAH! What a dick!

It will be interesting what is said on First Take and Skip and Shannon about this.


Actually to be fair, I'd mis-remembered. He did threaten to shoot her, but it was over the phone. Still terrible though.

Indeed, it was enough to issue a warrant for his arrest.

I am sleep deprived, to say the least, but I have been loving the World Cup.

Doing lots of small bets - mainly player props, as the TAB tends to have generous lines here. Also backed in Serbia for the title + Bogs as top point scorer.

So much fun. Plenty of cracking games already.

Hopefully the Greek coach continues to have no idea how to use Giannis - but I fear he'll go ham on us tonight...

This view is awesome: https://twitter.com/WNBA/status/1173385729180930049

I've watched/followed a fair bit of the WNBA this season. The Sky are (were!) my favourite team to watch, as they lead the league in pace. Really fun.

So I kinda feel for them - but the Mystics are curb-stomping everyone to the title anyway... so yeah...

Seems strange the NBA refused to play in Charlotte due to single gender bathrooms yet they’ll grovel to China over this issue. Perhaps wokeness is thick with hypocrisy after all.

I'm looking forward to this season. It's been a while since we've had an NBA season without a clear favourite to take it all.

:thumbup:

I cant wait. Am looking forward to the battle for Los Angeles, I prefer Clippers as a team but as always like Lakers also as they have raw power with Lebron and AD.

Will be fun around rest of the league too...

Abercrombie with the posterizer in a losing effort to the Grizzlies.

I'm also looking forward to this season. Probably the most excited I've been about a regular season since the first two of MJ's retirements

Sometimes I forget how tall some NBA players are, until I see photos like this where AB lock Patrick Tuipulotu is made to look a little fella.

I have to say, after the initial excitement of the off-season, I'm feeling a real downer for the NBA right now. Given their vocal anti-Trump stances, watching Harden and Westbrook stonewall a journalists questions and usually outspoken Steve Kerr given absolute garbage excuses for not speaking up for the obvious erosion of human rights in Hing Kong for the chinese dollar is just utter corporate bollocks.

It seems athletes and corporations only conscientiously stand up for good causes today if it won't affect their bottom dollar or their corporate standing.

NBA happy to speak out against Trump, boycotting visits to the WH, etc....but when it could impact their $$, they're happy to bend over for China. But only because "they don't really know enough about China's history" :blush: :lol:

Indeed. Especially after his forceful political statements previously to sink, and back-up like he has looks shite. Same for that reporter blanked by Harden and Westbrook.

Lebron obviously decides that not shrilling for China's political oppression deserves criticism and discussion, not China's human rights stances or anything:

It gets worse:

https://dailycaller.com/2019/10/15/lebr ... ryl-morey/

LeBron isn't just a passive scardy cat, he's a snake who pushed for Morey to be punished.

Oh and the double standards:

Yeah, Lebron's stance as a voice on social issues has taken a big hit. I don't think it'll affect it too much within the black community as that's something that he can speak on with first hand experience, but it's given a big boost to the 'shut up & dribble' crowd and a lot of other people won't be keen to defend him now.

But he's probably saved himself about $100M in potential lost revenue and I'm sure the backers of Space Jam 2 will be breathing a sigh of relief....

I personally don't really care about the NBA being the woke league and I'm still super excited about this season.

I know woke is being thrown about a lot here. But I don't think the NBA is especially woke. Black Lives matters was a reasonable (if overblown) issue to take big stances on and that is fine. What the NBA is showing is that's a horrible immoral league who only take good cause stances only because it's fashionable for their own PR and good for their bank balances and will happily throw people off a cliff for the same reason.

Everyone should be in the 'shut up & dribble' crowd regardless of which sportsman you are talking about.
If you want a platform to talk politics earn it as a politician.

Sports people living in the most bizarrely abnormal environment are among the least qualified to express political opinions.
(To be honest reporters are not much better most not having partaken much ion the real world either)

It's not remotely woke to the level people start to use it as a pejorative, but essentially any basic acknowledgement of social issues puts it ahead of the other leagues. And yes, it was about the bottom line when it comes down to it, I took that as a given.

To be clear, I love Lebron, I think he’s one of the most outstanding athletes of my lifetime and the stuff he’s done with his high school is fantastic. But he’s wrong on this China stuff.

Of course they have and are framing it as if it's a conservative backlash when it clearly is act act of hypocrisy and bullshit on LeBron's part. No coincidence the author's only other pieces, he's an ex-player, are entirely pro-players and pro-LeBron actions against anything else and LeBron backed his causes. Oh and he has worked with the DNC, so it's create a false narrative time about his political opponents.

I like his charity work, but let's face it, LeBron is a flake. A bit like Durrant, he wants one identity, the he wants another. I recall when he stated something about fast food is bad (good message) and then the next moment stated McDonalds is ok as he was heavily sponsored by them.
