    Hayward is only expected to miss 6 weeks, his fracture is pretty minor apparently. Still a shame since he finally looked back to his best before it happened, but it could have been much worse. Anyway, Doncic has been killing it this year. I can't recall another player who saw this game so well and had these kind of elite ballhandling and passing skills at his age. He doesn't look his age at all, his decisionmaking is unreal. And his stepback 3 is lethal.

    Kawhi's passing and playmaking look much improved so far this year, and that was the only somewhat weak part of his game. If this holds up and he stays healthy, the Clippers will be clear favourites for the title.

    Barkley was ridiculously athletic in his prime. Not only was he strong as a bull, but he is also quicker and jumped higher than pretty much any other PF and was known to be completely unstoppable on the fast break. https://www.nytimes.com/1991/03/17/magazine/headstrong.html He was also 300 pounds coming out of college, at least by his own account. https://sports.yahoo.com/charles-barkley-recalls-trying-to-gain-20-lbs--in-2-days-so-the-76ers-wouldn-t-draft-him-175559002.html?y20=1
  4. Excellent point. Here is the passage where Laila is first mentioned in the books: This certainly makes the rumours more plausible.
  5. https://redanianintelligence.com/2019/10/18/three-new-wheel-of-time-roles-cast/ Mat's parents have been cast. Also Helena Westerman has been cast to play Laila Aybara , a character who is not in the books, but obviously is a Perrin relative. There are some unconfirmed rumours that Laila will be Perrin's wife and will be killed by Trollocs in the Winternight fighting.

    Yeah, the latest episode was amazing, one of the best in the whole series IMO. Manny Jacinto and Ted Danson killed it. So many hilarious moments.
  7. The showrunner was asked about accents a few months ago and his answer was: https://mobile.twitter.com/rafejudkins/status/1146452610045685760
  8. ^ It is just a confusingly written flashback scene, nothing supernatural.
  9. Why not? Arya's plotline alone contains several much more unlikely events. Bran survived a fall from what, 30 meters? Tyrion the dwarf with zero combat training kicked ass in the Blackwater battle. IIRC Fain didn't hate Mat at this point and had no reason to kill him, so him surviving that encounter in the dungeons isn't unlikely at all.

    That's what happens when you go to the World Cup with your 5th team the members of which have zero experience playing together and most of them are new to FIBA basketball.
  11. Given how sexist and patriarchal Westeros is, realistically someone like Pedron Niall probably would have the best shot. Unless the Forsaken get to use Compulsion, then it's obviously them.
  12. Young Lan was extremely handsome IIRC.
  13. Not really. WoT is a lot more popular than ASOIAF was before the TV series. Its total sales are 90+ mln., while ASOIAF had around 12 mln. before GOT.
