Maybe they should just get rid of 3 pt line altogether, what would the game look like you think? It's not going to happen obviously but the other ways to limit 3s seem just as much of a gimmick. Maybe 1 for 1 FTs like college, get rid of defensive 3 second. I def would rather have the 1 vs 1 battles what the product is now. The NBA should experiment with rule changes but I guess that would have to start with them admitting there is a problem. Some might complain it punishes shooters but the previous rule changes have punished bigs and defense. I think the league needs to have a place for the Bojan Marjonovic's and Taco Falls' of the world, they make the game larger than life and there just needs to be variance in the types of play styles in the league to make it interesting. Everybody chucking 3s and trying to flop in FTs is just awful, I hate it even when its working since in my head they will always be bad shots.

Yeah, Bender was good against CSKA but horrible against Munich. Not sure why Maccabi’s coach would start him alongside Zizic and over Othello Hunter, who makes sense next to both Croatians. Still think Bender will be a positive for them.


Saras and Barca played with the Russians a day before half of their team and almos all of their staff tested positive :D

Hopefully Bender turns things around, yesterday both he, Zizic and even Othello got manhandled by Hassan Martin (who looks like a **** tank out there sofar)

I don't understand how the Lakers are filing to have Deng's salary removed despite the fact that they're not even the last team he played for.

See Larry Sanders getting paid by the Bucks. It's probably In the buyout they agreed to. Suck it up LAL, you signed a specific buyout. Just like the Bucks, you're stuck with that. Unless the league plays favorites...

Someone mentioned that the Magic applied to have Mozgov's salary removed and it was approved. Not sure how similar the circumstances are.

I think the difference is that Mozgov never played again.

Biggest difference to me is that Mozgov didn't play anymore after Orlando waived him. He actually had a career ending injury.

Lakers waived Deng in 2018, he signed with the T Wolves 9 days later and played 22 games with them. Seems like a weird thing to do if you had a career ending injury the previous year.

We got Mirza removed from our cap, too, but again, he was actually done.

I think I read in that Twitter thread that the Blazers weren't even able to recoup money for Brandon Roy because he played like 7 games.

IIRC they amnestied him so he was off their cap regardless.

So, I went searching to try to re-watch some of the Miami series, but cannot find the full games anywhere that isn't paywalled. They used to have replays up at

Anyone have suggestions?

Something tells me Stan will stay vocal. Lousiana might not like it.

Seriously. This is like if Romo were to leave the booth to go be the Cowboys QB again. Very insightful commentary and entertainment.
