  1. Yeah, you are probably right about the money being too much to walk away from. I just can't wrap my mind around the Jimmy Butler lowball. The guy is only 28. It's not like he's a guy who you would expect to be declining at the end of the deal, he should still be a star by then.
  2. The Butler thing is insane. What are they doing? I'd expect Towns to force his way out after this one.

    The conspiracy charges dont' make it worse, they just make it so that he can be charged and sentenced in the same manner as if he were the one who actually broke into the house and beat up the victim.

    Good lord, what a mess.

    I don't even blame you all for cheating at this point. It's like steroids in baseball in the late 90s and early 00s. If you flat out aren't going to enforce the rules, then why sit around while your competition breaks them? It's an indictment of the toothless NCAA, not the individual programs. Ending one and done may take care of it, as the players who are getting paid are the guys who will skip college.

    Ah, I misunderstood. A little bit more difficult, but still should be provable. Assuming that if McCoy ordered this they should be able to establish a link between him and the perp. If this one is true, that is decades in prison. Burglary plus assault is not something you are getting off on probation with.

    This seems like a situation that should be pretty easy to prove/disprove. Whoever did this showed up to the house uninvited and beat the victim. Given those circumstances, it shouldn't be difficult to prove one way or the other whether it was McCoy. No he said/she said. Either he was there (and did it), or he wasn't.

    We need to stop pretending the NCAA has the authority to punish teams. They don't. Kansas, as have all of the teams who have been signing the truly elite shoe-company tied recruits, has dirty hands. But absolutely nothing is going to happen, as has been proved countless times. North Carolina hoops is the ultimate example of this. The NCAA doesn't have any enforcement power against teams that are revenue generators. They can come down on the Ole Miss's of the world, but not teams that actually matter. That's even moreso the case in basketball, where most of the NCAA's revenue is tied to the NCAA tourney.

    Also, I'm curious to see Kentucky fan's thoughts on Cal. Kevin Knox appears to be yet another Kentucky guy who was squandered by Cal mismanaging him.

    Kansas feels like a team that will roll through the regular season and then bow out of the tournament early. A lot of big men clogging the lane and relying on freshman guards. That's a recipe for an upset in March.
  11. Also, how is Calipari such a dogshit coach? His guys pretty consistently get to the NBA and immediately look significantly better than they did in college? It's just ridiculous.
  12. Melo accepted a reduced role in OKC. He just played like complete dog shit. He was willing to be the third guy and defer shots to Westbrook and George, as well as be more of a spot up shooter. His one thing was he wasn't willing to come off the bench.

    NBA Free agency 2018: Where's the King landing?

    The Cousins thing is irrelevant, as they were a lock to win anyway. Even if you thought the Rockets had a chance last year (which I never believed, even at 3-2), the Rockets are significantly worse this year with Ariza gone. Lakers aren't remotely threatening unless they're able to add Kawhi midyear. All the Boogie move did was change the gambling odds.

    It's the DA's decision to proceed, but the DA is never going to win a rape case about consent or non-consent if the victim won't testify. That's why these matters usually disappear after a civil settlement.
