    U.S. Politics- SCOTUS 2: The Election Strikes Back

    Yeah, no, you're right, it's about more than wealth. However, that is still a far cry from reducing his position to "representing his country." I think any motivations he has for wanting to increase Russia's stance in the world are inherently self-interested, whether they be amassing power, wealth, or whatever.
  2. Every report I've seen consistently mentions that Leonard wants to play in LA, including those reports made after LA's acquisition of LeBron. I wouldn't put much stock into rumors that he doesn't want to play with LeBron (even if it's somewhat true, I think his motivations for wanting to play in LA greatly dwarf whatever concerns he has about that). Personally, I think he balls out this year, barring injury. He's going to want to ensure at all costs that the Lakers actually want to acquire him in free agency next year and also get the best value he can get. That will not happen if he doesn't make an effort. But, who knows. The dude clearly has issues, so he may not make the rational move.

    Putin's position is to enlarge his personal wealth vis-a-vis oligarchical control over industry and to continue his ability to do this by cementing permanent political power through murdering dissenters and propagating State propaganda to his people. Please.
  4. Thanks for putting this better than I could, hah. Personally, although @SpaceForce Tywin et al. may be right in calling me a shameless homer, I really like what the Bucks have done this offseason and am really high on their chances in the upcoming season to make at least make a 2 or 3-series deep playoff run. Going from quite possibly the worst coaching in the league to an above-average head coach will be huge. We now have more shooters than ever on the roster and a big not named John Henson or Thon Maker. I'd peg us somewhere in the 3rd-6th seed, although 3 is probably a stretch.
  5. They put up the same PPG, but Giannis has a higher eFG% and significantly more total rebounds per game as well. Most importantly, Giannis is a far superior defender to Lillard. Given that they have similar numbers on offense (though I would give the edge to Giannis due to efficiency and offensive rebounding), the difference in defensive value clearly puts Giannis over Lillard.
  6. Lol @ Lillard > Giannis. Come on now. I mean, Westbrook kinda too, but Lillard especially.
  7. Spare me. I opined that I agreed with someone, which is my opinion, and used the phrase "lol," which, as a ubiquitous internet filler word, is emphatically not the same as actually laughing at someone. Furthermore, there was no one actually here endorsing the viewpoint that was supposedly insulting to begin with. Finally, what I did not do is say people who think that Kobe is better than LeBron or Michael Jordan are "laughable dumbasses." Gtfo with this bs comparison, your post was not only a direct attack at another user here, but it was significantly more incendiary as well.
  8. Aw man, is Jimmy a bad locker room presence? Because this video made me instantly love him forever. Also this one ("doo doo!" lmao)

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    I actually agree with Frog Eater (whoa) that this is more a case of "cops being dicks," with the caveat that the cops' dickery was probably politically motivated. I wouldn't call it a "political move" though, as that kind of implies that the GOP political apparatus coordinated with local Ohio police to produce a sting operation targeted at Stormy, which seems fairly unlikely to me - at least, in comparison to the probability that the Ohio cops were just right-wing assholes who abused their power.
  10. It's a useful distinction but both (best vs. greatest) are still either subjective or arbitrary once a certain level of closeness between two players is reached. What you've described with Brady would accurately be called the most winning-est QB; and that metric does not necessarily define greatness to someone. Similarly (although not exactly the same), once two players are statistically close enough, determining which is "best" becomes an arbitrary exercise in deciding which individual statistics to highlight as more important towards defining "the best." But it is useful distinction, even if both are either subjective or arbitrary, because I think people often conflate the two or talk past each other referring to one vs. the other in discussions about the "GOAT," especially with LeBron vs. Jordan, and I agree with what you said about them largely.
  11. I'm not proposing that we eliminate all subjective terminology from the English language; rather, I'm simply suggesting that people who engage in discussions involving these sorts of topics have enough self awareness to understand that their opinions on these matters are not verifiable* fact and maybe refrain from going as far as calling other such opinions "laughably dumb." *edit: not veritable
  12. What's "laughably dumb" is you thinking there is a correct answer to this question when "greatness" is an inherently subjective term, and anyone can fit whatever objective metrics of each player exist to their narrative of which player is "better." Definitely not, lol.

    U.S. Politics: Kraving for Kavanaugh

    I loathe the opinions of this poster, but she/he has stated in a previous thread that he/she is not an American. Also, you can't equate not volunteering one's own nationality with "pretending to be American." That's ridiculous. If SweetPea was pretending to be American, she/he would have said such, or listed "United States" as his/her profile location.

    NFL Thread: "Terrell Owens does what?" edition

    I'm not sure about your second question - that's a substantive legal question - but the sentence for a conspiracy charge is never greater than the governing penal statute of the crime itself that was conspired. However, I believe it is possible to be charged with two counts - the crime itself, and conspiracy to commit the crime, if one were to organize a conspiracy and were also the central perpetrator of the crime itself.

    Yeah, lynch mobs are pretty tame compared to throwing bottles of piss, agreed
