Yeah man. I hate Blatche, he's just a name now. Would've preferred Clarkson tbh.

I mean how can it be too hard not to dump the ball to the country's best player and let him operate? To Italy's credit though, their passing is too crisp and executions are very much on point. Plus their shooting was too damn Curry-lite. And oh, the coach thought he was Phil Jackson, not making any changes or calling TOs when Italy was running away.

Problem is you're mother***** midgets. Like 8/12 players you got are 6'0 or less.
That's **** embararrasing. Even the other asian teams have some size at least. You had at least three 6'0 guys on the floor at the same time most of the game. The Italians looked as if they were playing against 13 y olds.

US team is weak as ****, this is by far the worst roster US ever had in a competition since pro players begun playing. By far.

Even the 6th place 2002 squad had better talent. I'd be surprised if they medal here.

Satoransky looks good out there vs USA though.

Meh, midgets yes, but I blame the system. Can't have your Center running plays and shooting threes. You probably missed some midgets dissecting the D and scoring layups.

If LeBron is trademarking Taco Tuesday, I (and a million other families) want a share. Been doing that with my fam on and off, calling it Taco Tuesday since 2005. It’s modern day folklore, not trademark-able.

We also have Wacko Wednesday at my pad these days. Maybe he should try that instead.

Does that mean that restaurants and bars that have taco Tuesday won’t be able to call it that any more

LeBron rallies support for Fair Pay to Play bill
The bill, SB 206, called the Fair Pay to Play Act, would prohibit schools in California from taking away scholarships or eligibility from college athletes who use their celebrity to make money. Senate Bill 206 has cleared the state Senate and is awaiting a vote by the full California State Assembly.

James tweeted his support Thursday.

You suggesting that giving his sister money just because you got it makes this not happen? Not everyone who's got wealthy relatives kills people in a very violent manner.

Actually, giving people money just because you're related to them is a horrible thing to do 9 times out of 10. Go look at what happens to lottery winners and their families.

Understand your point. But didnt say give her money. But said figure.out a way to take care of family. Theres several ways to take care of your family. Not just direct cash.

Some people can’t be taken care of or helped no matter how badly you want to. Since this happened at a casino, gambling addiction is one of these can’t be helped scenarios.

Understood. But doing nothing at all has consequences as well. As it is, both brother, sister and family is being dragged thru the mud.

Eh, don’t confuse a scenario where your help isn’t wanted/accepted with doing nothing at all.
