    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    I am pretty sure mediocre white Christians are the most oppressed people in America, though.

    MLB 2018: Sho(hei) Me What You Got

    Ooooh maybe that's why the Sox DFAed Hanley and no one else picked him up... https://deadspin.com/report-cops-looking-into-hanley-ramirezs-possible-conn-1827067147

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

    I dunno, but someone saw fit to mention that it wasn't for basketball reasons. Hell, if not for the dad, they might put him in the summer league just as a favor to his older brother. I thought it was an unprotected 2021. If Miami sucks, which seems likely, that could be a pretty sweet pick. But you're only 72 years off, so that's nice.

    Maybe stockpiling another pick to flip for Kawhi? He didn't get invited to the Lakers' summer league team either, and they let it be known that it wasn't just for basketball reasons. Translation: not worth dealing with his old man.

    I got to use Revelation 3:16 on someone the other day, on someone trying to both-sides the toddler concentration camps. It was magnificent.

    Maybe that's why you should keep families together, for fuck's sake.

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

    I was reading a Deadspin article about Dwight Howard being traded for a bag of basketballs (okay, it was for Mozgov and a pair of second round picks) and came across something that made me pause. The author assumes Howard is Hall of Fame bound. I... guess? Just for production? Can a guy who's been a constant disappointment and who racked up numbers on sheer physical talent be a Hall of Fame player? Has the decade or so of him mostly being a punchline erased my memories of his good years? Am I crazy for thinking there wouldn't be a lot of Hall voters eager to endorse his career? Do people get into the Hall of Fame for huge shoulders that couldn't carry anything?

    Tatum is off the table. I might consider Brown but I really like having him on my team. I don't trust Scary Terry yet, but I think he'll be way cheaper long term than Kyrie, and I think @Jaimstoyevesky was right that he gives you 80% of Kyrie. Rozier doesn't need to be a creator on offense or the last shot guy like Irving -- Leonard and Tatum can be options 1 and 2 there. Other teams can offer more -- but I was responding to the idea that the Spurs would take less to keep Kawhi out of the West. Philly might be my only Eastern competition then, and I think the Celtics have more assets to offer.

    Trade him to Boston for Kyrie and a pick! If we're going to have one elite guy coming off a leg injury on a one year contract, I'd rather have Kawhi.

    He's also the umbilical cord keeping Baby Donald tethered to the rotten womb of the McJesusites.

    And now TO is hanging out with Julio Jones while Jones holds out. Oh man, they must be shitting themselves in Atlanta.

    Yes, and pepper spray is "essentially a food item" and waterboarding is like fraternity pranks. If there's an atrocity being committed, a blonde Foxbot is out there minimizing it.

    Because I don't think he'd stick around. Just like my objections to dealing for Paul George. I don't want a one year rental on a guy who's going to bolt for the Lakers.

    The idea of Boston selling the farm for a one year rental makes me Kawhi, Kawhi, Kawhi.

    Damn, I spent too long trying to come up with Kawhi puns for a new title, and got ninjaed.
