Earlier in the week he was working out with Johnathan Motley. It's natural to be concerned for his well-being, but also understand the willingness to risk it all to pursue his dream. Hopefully his health will hold up and that he continues to defy the diagnosis.

Yeah, Utah is going to be tough.
Plus, why would I want to go to the NBA? Duke players suck in the pros.

    "Defending champion Power returns Most Valuable Player Corey Maggette, Defensive Player of the Year Chris Andersen and Coach of the Year Nancy Lieberman."

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2841940-big3-basketball-league-2019-season-schedule-and-full-team-rosters


Corey Maggette re-emerges from self-imposed exile after accusation of rape by the same woman who accused Virginia's Lt Governor.

Corey went underground immediately after the story broke, disappearing from the Clippers' broadcasts [to my knowledge] without a word. He seemed to be positioned to get the color man job full-time, but it sure doesn't look good at the moment. It looks like he won't be charged but I don't see how the org and the network can have him around.


https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/11/sports/meredith-watson-corey-maggette.html

    Years before Ms. Watson came forward as the second woman to publicly accuse Mr. Fairfax of sexual assault, inflaming a political crisis in Virginia, she told multiple friends that she had been raped by Mr. Maggette, according to one of those friends and Facebook messages exchanged with another.

    R. Stanton Jones, a partner at the law firm Arnold & Porter in Washington who grew up with Ms. Watson in Baltimore, said she told him that she had been raped by Mr. Maggette. She told Mr. Jones about it while he and Ms. Watson were both home for the summer in 2001, he said.

    “Meredith told me she had been raped twice at Duke,” Mr. Jones said. “And she told me that one of the men who raped her was the Duke basketball player Corey Maggette. That was a name I knew because I’m a basketball fan.”

If Darren Collison is going to retire, this is how I will remember him as an NBA player.
And he was incredible at Etiwanda High as well but this was fun....and cool...

Here is the breakdown of the Damian Lillard supermax extension with Portland: $43.75, $47.25, $50.75 and $54.25 million. Lillard will become the first $50 million player in NBA history and $257 million in combined salary (current and new money) is the most in league history.

Glad for DJ that he’s found his way to a contender again, he’ll have tuff competition with Jarett Allen but at least he’ll have a reason to be motivated again.

JJ going to the Pelicans is unexpected but the man is getting that money on his late 30’s! He’s made like 3 times more since he left than he did here. Not sure what the 6ers are doing, they really needed him.

Everyone’s getting paid big, not a lot of contracts I’d be ecstatic about, I wonder what the hell is gonna be left to spend our capspace on

The Lamb contract is great but the Brogdon one is really big, specially if it costs them a bunch of picks. Plus they lost Bogdanovic, Young and Collison who were big contributors, I’m not too sure yet

Magic got lots of players at 4 with same prototype. (Gordon-Isaac-Iwundu-Okeke*-Aminu) Plus They filled the 5 and 3 with Vucevic and Ross extensions. So i wonder there is a opening for Isaac or Bamba? Trade With Jerome maybe.
