Yet another contract that makes Zach’s deal look pretty good.


Yeah wow. The fact that it's flat is pretty nice

Ended up with 4 points on 2/8 shooting, 13 boards (5 offensive, 8 defensive), 2 assists, 1 steal and 4 fouls in 21 minutes.

Not exactly flattering.

At this point I would be happy if he could even provide some hard nosed rebounding, but I doubt it.

I like Sato's game. Just what we need, a veteran with great fundamentals.

I'm not sure what to say about this except lol.

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/09/02/wendell-carter-jr-vs-jaren-jackson-jr-vs-marvel-comics-block-panther-trademark/

Both have been using the nickname of “The Block Panther”. Wendell seems to have the better, earlier claim and after all, does turn up on court like this. Which is from where the nickname originated.


Read on Twitter


But JJJ it seems has taken this further and has registered a trademark for the name ‘The Block Panther’ under goods and services


Marvel has made the US government aware of their likelihood of challenging this trademark and have asked for three months additional time to put together a case, which has been granted.


IMO, this seems like a piece from the Onion and maybe it is just comically fake news, but I'm not familiar with this site. Either way, it's pretty cool to see Realgm and posters here get some publicity.

Maybe Keobull should talk to a copyright attorney, lol. I'm no attorney, but as far as I can tell he probably has the strongest case for owning the rights.

Beal is available in trade talks, I can't see a path to the bulls, but I'm curious where he might end up if traded.

Beal is better than Zach. That said, I think Zach has more upside left to his game by way of efficient play and defense - not saying it's a given he realizes that potential. Moreover, short of adding filler type pieces like Dunn or Valentine in a deal, Beal isn't so much better that the additional pieces required wouldn't make us a worse team.

I'm not sure it would work for WAS, but maybe Knicks (who really need help) would do DSj, Knox and Randle for Beal.

and oops, looks like I misread the headline as well, wash "hasn't" made him available, my bad.

I'd still love him, we'd get the last very good piece that Washington owns.

Good to see Bulls IG showing Lauri Otto Lavine and Coby playing together. Dunn sighting too... although he’s shooting FTs... which he never does in games.

But there's certainly a possibility you've discounted as impossible that Cousins really is a violent, frightening person to this woman, and she legitimately does not want someone like that in her son's raising. Healthy relationships don't result in taped conversations. I don't think this woman and DeMarcus were walking down the boardwalk with ice cream cones. She was recording him because he probably has said a ton of terrible stuff to her over their time, and she caught him in the act. I don't know anything about her to judge her behavior, but I do know that Cousins is an angry, angry dude who can't be threatening the murder of his son's mother.



V Stiviano recorded her conversations because that was a normal healthy relationship.

Bleeding Cool has been around for a long time and has broke stories before in the comic industry.

I had no idea that JJJ also called himself "The Block Panther".

Wow, I have nothing against jaren Jackson but I think it’s kind of embarrasing to highjack somebodies nickname like that.
Jj also reminds me a bit of joe smith kinda prospect. He kind of has this regular guy kind of vibe. His size being the main reason he is even in the league. Lol.
