Making jokes about a person who has Covid feels icky to me. The disease has killed millions and significantly hindered the lives of millions more.

if it was a particularly bad person, I’m okay with karma. That’s not really the case here.

I don’t even know what he was referring to. New thread page, just assumed the last post was relevant.

Ha yeah I misread the tweet. Didn't see the part where the tweeter said "Get well soon."

Get well soon is a sentiment I can rally behind. It's just a fucked up disease and it puts me on edge still...more than a year and a half later. Carry on.

How... how is that even possible?

That's what can happen when you roll out the worst roster in NBA history (and your 1 real NBA player is out) .... unless you are playing our beloved Lakers you stand the chance of losing by 73.

On another note, the Cavs, Rockets, and Thunder are already at 23 wins. So yeah, no under there.

so here's the deal... Shams is a Klutch mouthpiece. Everyone knows it. Simmons is a Klutch client. So there's a whole lotta Klutch going on in this little blurb...



... the Lakers are interested? The only way the Lakers can trade for Ben Simmons is if they include one of three contracts in the deal - LeBron (not happening), AD (also not happening) or Russell Westbrook (uhhhh...)


December 15 gonna get wild

Cavs would be insane to mess with the developing chemistry of this team in such a dramatic fashion. I really hope they are not still considering a Simmons trade.

fair - but imagine a team with Allen, Mobley and Simmons on the court together? Who would score on that team?

Evan Mobley is an absolute stud.

Simmons' contract is so prohibitive though. We're on the brink of getting out from one of the worst contracts in the league with Kevin Love; I'd hate for the team to immediately weigh itself down with another albatross.

ehhhhhh it's in the mid 30s. think it tops out at 40. it's a lot - but most people actually expect salaries to see a big jump once the CBA is renegotiated - so those last 2 years may actually look like a bargain when it's all said and done.

my thing with cleveland is this - it's really damn hard to get free agents to come there. so if you can lock in an under 30 all nba talent for four years, don't you kind of have to?

i'd have some concern that if things don't work out in a year or two that he'd just pull this shit again - but, yea - i think simmons is really good and will flourish in a new environment (away from embiid)
