Incompetence doesn't begin to describe this mess. We've spent millions and traded several draft picks for literally nothing.


Both Teddy and Sam were reclamation projects that could have paid off well. When you're dealing with Quarterbacks, there's a sunk cost. If either would have blow up the Panthers would have been seen as wise to lock them up for the additional year. It just didn't work out.

I'm still not giving up on Darnold. Most folks have, but I think his issues are mainly between the ears. A good shrink might be the ticket...or a full season behind a true vet leading to a reasonable third contract as a backup.

As for the Cam signing, I guess he'll sell some tickets. And the Panthers should be desperate.

Teddy is playing solidly this season. 2100 yards, 14 TD to only 5 INT's. Completing 70% of his passes. He is a solid QB who we gave up on too soon. He was a good player for the Vikings too, before his injury.

Darnold was terrible in NY and terrible for us. He has a fractured shoulder, he is done.

We could've drafted a QB in the draft. Instead we picked a CB, who is also injured.

We're going into next season with either no QB, or an old Cam being the starter. This isn't a great QB draft class either. We're at least 2-3 years away from being a good team.

I'm not sure how much you guys want to hear about sports betting, and please let me know if you guys mind me mentioning it here and there and I'll stop bringing it up (I have a few times in the GTs). However, I've gotta share this literal miracle from tonight:

So I bet 140 to profit 595 on:
Tyler Herro scoring 22+ points
Reggie Jackson scoring 22+ points

Both have to be completed to win the bet.

-In the first half, Herro had 14 points and Jackson had a grand total of 0 points.
-In the 3rd Q, Herro got his requirement by getting his total to 23 points. Jackson, playing the entire quarter, scored 15 points.
-In the 4th Q, Herro didn't score any more points. Jackson was subbed in with 7 minutes left in the game (pretty short rest considering he played 12 straight minutes).
-He had one field goal attempt (a missed 3 with around 4 minutes left), before making a 3 with 1:45 left. PG13 was taking bad shots.
-With around 1 minute left, he missed a wide open layup.
-With 11 seconds left and the Clippers up 1, he gets fouled and makes both FTs.
-With 4 seconds left and the Clippers up 1, he gets fouled. First FT rattles out and in. Second FT pure.

I'll never get that lucky again :lol: :lol: :lol:

I gamble quite a bit. I also dabble in stocks (not for investment, but mainly pump and dumps) and try to make some quick money. 3 or 4 weeks ago I put 2k in a stock called PHUN. I believe it's the software company that's doing a lot of stuff for Trumps new social media ordeal. It pumped to 24 bucks a share and I was up 12k, halted (they halt stocks when they rise or fall too quickly) and when it unhalted immediately skipped my stop loss and went down to 8. I lost 5 figures in a slan of 35 seconds. I nearly vomited.

Good. Lord. That's tragic man. Yeah the last few years I haven't been using my SU degree and have mainly been playing poker professionally...so I'm pretty well conditioned to money swings...but that one's just painful.

Yeah I pulled what was left out and just put it into Shib. Hoping it hits a couple cents in the next few years.

Anybody see the NBA-TV special on Muggsy Bogues last night? It was interesting and very moving. I did not realize that Dell Curry and Muggsy were such fast friends and longtime teammates.

They only hinted at how management ruined the franchise by trading Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning, Dell Curry, and Muggsy Bogues. But I remember distinctly that fans abandoned the team after that, which led to its relocation to New Orleans.

itw from Dan Mashir, coach of the nz breakers (with couple prospects including "our" Ousmane Dieng). I guess the league season begins very soon (i will be harassing Diop regulary so that he gives some feedback from our frenchies - we also have a scoring shooting guard named Hugo Besson in this team).

Read on Twitter
?s=20

Few highlights from a preseason game (apparently he's played at the wing - he was developed as a pg when "younger" if i can say for a 18 yo dude - and many drives but he was good in catch & shoot situation, esp. from the 3 line).



ps : of, take what the coach says with a grain of salt as nbl is gambling a lot on overseas prospects to grant them buy out (shared between all teams). But they did not make wrong choices for our prospects obviously(the talent/skillset is there).

MKG was never the same after Ian Mahinmi fell on his shoulder. It was all downhill after that. Injuries derailed his career hard.

Things were also different (like a ghost on the court when he came back) when he lost his grandma.

But yes for the injury with Mahinmi, as usual diving for a lose ball he should not have tried to grab.

Hard not to have regrets because despite the bball flaws, he is still a pretty nice dude and warrior

guarantee our current coaching staff would've done a better job with him. our really any other coaching staff in the league aside from Clifford's.

Yeah. It would be interesting to be able to simulate his career with a real development coaching staff.
