I hope our players are more focused on their jobs and the ultimate goal which is to win a championship instead of talking 24/7 about political BS.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

A better plan would be to lace them up. Win a game. Remind the community about you are united with your team as a symbol of unity with every interview and tweet that you have. Create a movement by MOVING. Win the championship. Go to the white house and speak to everyone including POTUS about change. Or don't go to the Whitehouse to bring more awareness to the cause.

Pessimist in me thinks Dwight figured the season was done and fell off his diet hard...
Bradley not playing might mean a real short run for us though. He's key against a lot of good teams.

Was fighting hard to give a crap about the NBA season resuming anyway... But between Silvers statements about sacrifices, and a few of the players not wanting to play... Along with the whole format and no fans thing... I'm pretty much back to not giving a crap.

K Irving got the ball rolling on this players against playing in Orlando after the NBA told him his team didn’t make the cut. Before that he was the leading cheerleader for the season to re start. Now he is saying that the white owners are taking advantage of black players for money.
Jeez didn’t this guy believe the earth was flat or something?

So..... being a numbers guy I calculated the probability of a healthy 25-35 year old having a serious COVID case right between getting hit by lightening 2 times at least a year apart and congress having an approval rating above 20%. If he's not in a nursing home I think he's OK. Come on Dwight....

So is it going to be that if a player tests positive, he doesn't play? Because if it is, I doubt a lot of games get played, and the ones that do will be fairly pathetic.

An insightful look at Lakers' lineups that will be on display in Orlando.

We'll be interesting to see who the 5th starter is and how that impacts the 2nd unit, especially if Dwight is out.

According to Chris Haynes, Lionel Hollins is not joining the team in Orlando after being flagged as a high risk person.
