Did the kids enjoy when you came out in your Slapshot costume?

After watching Lonzo Ball last night, I was searching around YouTube for ugliest NBA shots and came across this:





Love Iverson laughing at that guy at the end.

I take exception to Rick Barry being in that montage. Not only did he shoot 90% but that underhand shot was a thing of beauty.

This whole Dwight Howard episode is so disappointing on so many fronts.

Everyone should have something to say about this.

It’s pretty clear that he’s an a-hole, but it’s also pretty clear that the culture in basketball is still far behind and akin to that of shitty ass baseball and the facade of the last decade is just that.

I'm only saying in light of who my employer is that this is one subject that I'm going to be incredibly careful about how I publicly discuss it.

All people should be allowed to live their lives without fear of it having a negative impact on their profession. Society has a problem with this. Sports are simply a microcosm of society..

This particular situation has some complexities beyond someone simply being outed, and until it all shakes out, I'm simply not going to discuss it.

I suppose I didn’t consider that when I said “everyone.”

Regardless, there’s literally nothing good from this situation.

Maybe the Rockets shouldn't have gotten rid of Ariza and Mbah A Moute

They are good. They've been good for years. They now have a top 5 player. Their young bench is a year older.

Counterpoint

They went to OT to beat the Warriors who were without two of their best players. They've had the 3rd easiest schedule in the NBA to start the season.

The jury, as they say, is still out.

Let's talk in May.

They'll be at or near the top of the east for sure.
Kawhi and the lack of facing Lebron should make a difference in the playoffs.
The question is will the Celtics get their shit together, it looks like they may have started to figure some things out against the Brow Monday. If so, Celtics should still be the team coming out of the east. If not Toronto and Milwaukee have a shot. (Not buying Philly, not enough depth)

Toronto is better than Boston right now. They were better than Boston last year, too.

May is all that matters.

They've disappointed so often in the playoffs that it's all meaningless until the playoffs.

On paper they should be the team that gets to get slaughtered by Golden State in June

They've been the best regular season or one of the top 2 or 3 regular season teams for each of the past 3 seasons.

They are very good. They have been very good.

They need to prove it in the playoffs.

Yes, they have Kawhi now. Yes, LeBron is in the west. They still need to show that the Kyle Lowry's or the world aren't going to shit the bed in the playoffs.

Case in point

I'm feeling pretty confident the Celtics have gotten their shit together and if healthy will be able to beat the Raptors in the playoffs.
They beat the Bulls by 56 Saturday without Horford and Baynes.
They beat The Brow Monday without Kyrie, Hayward, Horford and Baynes. Then they beat the Headaches last night in DC without Hayward, Horford and Brown.
