If the league stops for a few weeks everytime there is a Covid outbreak, they might as well just cancel the season. Such a stupid strategy.

Why would anyone with money pay attention to any protocols or lockdown rules?

So many people scream "follow the rules!" yet their actions make them look like hypocrites. Lots of rich and famous people especially. But also regular people & social media friends.

At this point, and I can't believe I'm saying this, I wish we went with the China lockdown method. Martial Law, can't leave for a month or 2, spray the streets with disinfectant. Wuhan is having dance parties every night now FFS.

You can't half ass being strict and that's exactly why we are at this point. Trump fudged up but probably couldn't do much as:
-He had no clue what to do and referred to people around him for advice
-His base would've exploded
-Anti-trumpers already thought he was fascist

Bunch of "what ifs" but my point is I could care less if Kyrie was at a fam party. It's just the timing. Him missing all these games for "personal reasons" is a bit concerning. Nash said we will hear from him though so who knows what's going on. Maybe he's working with Kanye on an album.

No. I couldn't forgive myself if I gave Covid-19 to another family member and they died. Family is when you have to be careful most of all. It seems work is where were more careful than anywhere else by law or whatever. It's should be about most being careful when with family.

Problem is.... Government could not arrest people violating stay at home order, so they just shutdown and fine businesses. We know now those are crap Government mandates to pretend they are working.

My first extended look at the Knickerbocker. Julius Randle actually playing under control now will be a problem. Quickley ready to take the league by storm. Fringe playoff team this season. I'm just worried that Thibs runs these kids into the ground playing them too many minutes. Lay off the gas pedal and let it happen dude.

Speaking of the Knicks. We will see if they are for real in person, or GSW as a team above/below this team as of now.

The Warriors are better

Melo and amare should thrive in this offense. If Jeremy Tyler and cole Aldridge looked that good in summer league then us knick fans have a lot to be excited about. Make room for all the bandwagoners when we take off

Knicks fans have been riding the RJ Barrett love/hate roller coaster so far this season. Some are being patient, but a lot are calling him a low end potential bust. I have to admit, he looks like just an average sort of starter really, in the Harry Barnes mold. Hard to fathom he's still 20 yrs old, because he looks 35.

I didn't really care for Barrett as a top prospect when I saw him at Duke. But like you said, he's still young and still has a chance. But I wouldn't be all in on him at this point.

Well, it sounds like Cleveland will either trade or waive Kevin Porter Jr.

Perhaps a change of scenery and a more stable organization would suit him. He's certainly a talented player, and young. He showed flashes with Cleveland last year. Clearly he has some mental health stuff to work out, but he was getting ready to rejoin Cleveland so he's probably ready to play.

He was talked about before Myers got Oubre?

Don't say neither.... Which would you rather have? Oubre or Gordon?

I would take Gordon over Oubre and he only has 1 extra year on his contract.
