I love Bradley Beal's game.

I am a big Wall critic, but he looks different in a good way. John is very assertive and he's playing very well.


I agree a moral victory considering we had to beat Flop city and the refs


Agree - but we have had too many moral victories this season and not enough real ones...
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Instead of bemoaning star calls, we need stars. Instead of believing that we could have played good basketball if only we drafted the right second round pick, we need stars. We should have learned this by now. We need to draft and trade with this in mind. The refs are not going to change.

Since they anticipate based on reputation, they repeatedly miss calls and favor the team with the better record. Doesn't help when you're playing a team known for flopping and complaining to the refs....



exactly

anticipation bias
A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity
