Yeah I thought it was well known that KD smokes....and it doesn't even remotely effect his performance or work ethic. It's a non story

The most interesting things in this tweet are right below Taylor Rooks' neck, and not KD's weed consumption


Not the point. Put it here to piss antivax crowd. What places they can come through and get a joint with cold one :lol:

One thing I noticed about Harden. Even if you mediocre player, but playing with effort you'd be OK. Play lazy and he will DJ your azz.

This is why you dont tank. you create a losing entitled culture and when you treat players as pure assets, this is the kind of thing you run up against.

I had to double check, but I've been wondering why people keep calling Daryl Morey the Sixers GM. He's not. He's their POBO, Elton Brand is still the GM.

Yeah, seems like over the years "GM" has become sort of a shorthand for 'most significant decision-maker of a team's front-office.' I'm not personally crazy about that deffo, but here we are?

Goofy analogy--
I'm a big Steve Irwin fan (RIP). The other day, someone said "he's no saint," and I replied "he's basically the working definition of a saint" (upon habitat sustainability, etc), and the other person replied "but that's not the Catholic definition of 'saint!'"

Like, oh well...?

Enes Kanter went on Fox News the night before and basically told Black NBA and WNBA players to shut up and dribble in terms of their outspokenness about American social issues plaguing minority communities.

I don't want to hear any more about Kanter and him dogging out Joe Tsai for not going up against the CCP. You don't tell Black players, especially our women ball players who fight harder and with less resources, to shut up and then start condemning LeBron and Joe Tsai. Joe and his wife have actually put their money where their mouth is in the community in Brooklyn and in terms of social change. I've already said it, but after what happened to Jack Ma, it is not my place to tell any Chinese expat what they should or should not say regarding the government in China.

It's been VERY clear what direction Kanter was heading in when he started all this.

He'll claim he was kicked out of the NBA next year once he's working for Fox full time. He'll blame black people for it and use it as evidence for how racism doesn't exist in America.

Yeah, the sad part is the same people he is dog whistling to will tell him to go f*ck himself because he's a Muslim if they ever look past the fact that he can barely pass for a white person. It's crazy that the first thing he does as an American citizen is start to cozy up to white supremacists like Tucker Carlson.

I had no issue with him speaking out about China, but telling his fellow American citizens to shut up about injustices that personally impact them/us in our own country while raging against the CCP is peak hypocrisy. And coming from a country whose Authoritarian President wants him killed for the stuff he says, Enes should know better.

I hope it's worth it for his sake, because all that China talk + rubbing elbows with racist scumbags is a surefire ticket towards getting blacklisted.
