I hope the NBA comes down hard on him but it seems like it could be hard to prove. Lou claims he left to attend a funeral (which may be true). The person who posted the photo of Lou at the strip club claims it was an old photo. Lou himself said it was indeed from last night but he only stopped in to pick up some food.


Wait a minute....he was picking up food from a strip club?

You think Victor's has a monopoly on Tuna Casserole Thursday?

Draymond really not helping the “ignorant Americans” stereotype.

I don't think you guys are shaking that tag for a while given the current situation over there. ☹️

No outrage if I post about Rand McNally though. They are some chill dudes. Until the hamburgers rise up at least.

Someone needs to make Draymond watch the 30 for 30 about the African youth basketball camps Massai has founded/operated/led/funded for the last decade. Massai has probably personally improved the lives of thousands of African youth. But great question Dray! Clearly America is the only country with poverty, inequality, and racism. Way to expose the non ‘mericans!

Rockets need to go all out from game 1. They can finish anywhere from 3-7. Harden will have to play heavy minutes right away.

I read his reasoning for this and I thought it made a ton of sense.

The Blazers would be better off giving Whiteside’s minutes to Wenyan Gabriel. That dude causes havoc. Would love him in Milwaukee.

7 is obviously a bit of a problem. But I dont think there is any difference between 3 and 6 without any home court advantage.

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/rockets/article/James-Harden-puts-in-the-time-helps-Rockets-rally-15435898.php
The Rockets got stronger as the game went on. For coach Mike D’Antoni, that was not just a good sign but a reason to give at least some of his regulars regular minutes. “You can practice all you want, but you don’t get into game shape until you start playing games,” he said. “The three scrimmages are really important, and the eight games will be important to get to playoff form.”

“Last game, we played 10-minute quarters, so I only played 27 minutes,” said Harden, who insisted he remain in the game with four minutes left. “In regular-season games and in the playoffs, the intensity is going to be much higher so I want to build that right now and get that going, so when it starts, I’m already prepared. I just wanted to push myself a little more and get a win.

“I got a little winded throughout the course of the game. I think everybody was. I don’t want to just play 20 minutes and when the eight games come be playing 35, 36 minutes and it’s going to be a huge shock. I just want to prepare myself so I’m ready.”

Some people get it.

It was a pretty weak move by ESPN to be honest but calling for somebody to be fired over it isn't going to gain Ja Rule any sympathy. The video was taken out of context and the crowd sound was edited out of the video. Ja Rule talks about it here. He was asking if the DJ was ready as a cue for him to start playing the first song (he even says "Sanchez, we ready?") but the DJ missed the cue which made things awkward. I can understand why he is so defensive about it.

Here's a fan video of the performance which clearly shows the crowd reacting.

Me when I first heard the Bucks were having JA Rule for 90's night: Why are they having a 2000's artist for 90's night?

JA Rule: They said this is 90's night, so they brought out a 2000's artist.

lol

Ja Rule was done’d wrong. But the worst possible response is to demand a firing on the grounds of how he has impacted culture.
