I hate that Zion went to the Pelicans so damn much. I would have preferred literally any other team land that pick, including the Lakers.

Good stuff. I love how Zion is so humble.

Couple of thoughts:

1. Holy **** I had no idea Redick has been in the playoffs every season of his career. Can anyone in recent memory match that streak?

2. Holy **** I had no idea Redick averaged 18 points a game last year as a 34 year old and has been over 15ppg for the past 6 seasons.

Keeps himself in crazy good shape and his shot will always be elite. Great pickup by New Orleans

Remember when a lot of people said that he was a hack and Morrison would have the much better career of the two?

I just saw a picture of Kemba in a Celtics uniform for training camp, it activated my gag reflex.

The Hawks Peach/Black color scheme is SICK. They should change to that.

I always said that if the Bobcats used black as their base/primary and that strong orange as an accent (rather than the orange as the base/primary) it would have looked awesome.

It's a great looking court design, but it reminds me of the Suns. Must be the black-orangey color combo.

When are all of the official official officially official players heights being released?

Looking forward to some great laughable moments occurring.

Like when Walker measures at 5’10” and not 6’1”.

Any way we can expect the truth from these numbers?

Or are they just going to be "yearly updates"?

They are supposed to be accurate now because NBA is cracking down on it.

On a related note, Boston.com reports Kemba measured exactly at 6 ft. (https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/10/nba-heights-new-official-durant-zion)

@BobbyMarks42
Charlotte ranks no. 30 in the FPR.

Since Nov. 2009, the Hornets have ranked last 14 times.

The lone stretch that Charlotte did not was between Sept. 2014 to Sept. 2017 (15, 25, 23, 20 and 19).

It does lessen the allure for guys to go to big markets though. Chinese probably aren't watching Hornets games, but they probably see lots of Celtics, Rockets, and Lakers. Thus, less marketing potential for stars on those teams if China goes south.

Either way, I don't see China pushing this issue much further at all. They already faced global pushback and I'm assuming their own citizens are probably questioning some of the statements being made. Sports are pretty big over there and the Chinese fans seem to enjoy the NBA a great deal.
