I wanted to see the play where he got hurt and I found something kinda cool and informative. It is a sports medicine doctor evaluating the injury, explaining it, and talking about recovery time.

Julius Randle going in on refs who told him that he is stronger so contact doesn't affect him. Let's go, time the bigs come together and end this BS lol. Embiid is one of the few bigs who gets the calls. Shaq's advice to Randle was to not say that because nobody cares, lift that elbow up and punish guys for guarding you lol.

Yea KAT does that and see what happens, that elbow stuff doesn't work Shaq, you will be out of the game.

Lebron has Covid. Update: reinstated after double negative test. Will play Friday.

Edit to add: Rockets had 2 injuries. Wood suffered a sprained ankle (an ankle which apparently had been an issue last season,) though he did return for a bit was benched and ruled out at the half, and Kevin porter Jr suffered a thigh injury. Porter Jr, also returned and was benched and ruled out at the half. The good news for us is the Wood ankle situation might drive down his trade cost a bit, the bad news is it could make him a less viable trade target.

Edit to add: Bam out four to six weeks following thumb surgery.

Thunder roster today was basically a g league team lol
Nba needs to punish them for blatant tanking two seasons in a row.

Issues yes. Ringer had a podcast with Raja Bell where he talked a bit about what he knew though it was more him being a bit of an a hole with him and a prick to his wife when she miscarried then him saying it’s all true. Other guy talked more about the execs who were black being called Carlton and asked to dance by higher ups and such. It’s not a podcast I listen to outside of this one, but some interesting points and perspectives I never thought of. The compelling current players to testify is news to me though.

Since the Wolves beat the Grizzlies by 43, does that mean they're 116 points better than the Thunder?

Not sure if anyone has brought up Mobley, but damn, a little bit of luck and we could’ve drafted him at #4. He’s already an elite defender producing near rookie Tim Duncan numbers on defense.

#4 would be GSW pick. Ours was top 3 protected only. Neeva brings it up a lot.

For some reason I thought it was top 4 protected, thanks for the correction. Either way, he’d be a nice fit. :D

My brother was really high on him. He was right, Mobley would be just what we needed. Luck wasn't on our side however and I won't be too salty about it as we lucked out big with KAT and Ant at number 1.

How in THE HELL are the Rockets on a 7 game win streak!? I swear it's like the NBA Gods hand these win streaks out like candy to other teams. Wolves won 5 straight and it was a massive deal for us. A team that is supposed to be at the bottom of the NBA has just ripped off 7 like it is nothing. I really don't understand how these teams manage to be that consistent.

Depressing to see other former wolves flourishing and we are over here in turmoil again. Our organization really has some issues. Of course, we can blame players for being losing but it seems like no matter what, we just have this bad funk we can't shake. Our struggling players frequently bounce back when they get on better teams and roles, here, we just can't figure it out. Painfull.

Mobley is really special. And this Cavs team is fun to watch...
I totally get why Lebron said that they have a better core now than before he went there for the second time.

The Lakers had a better core before he showed up and traded everyone for AD.
