Hopefully he didn't get her Pregnant. Reason being is I don't want us to have to sign their kid to the roster. If we do hopefully it's just for preseason. I wanna keep a spot open incase JaQuori becomes availabe.

Hopefully this hoopla and PJ's baby mama drama will scare a bit of sense into him. He needs to stay away from the 25 and up clout chaser types and be smart out there.

Definitely looks like Melo is aiming to get a few more dunks in this season. I'm all for it.

Ball put up 20.0 points, 7.8 assists and 7.5 total rebounds per 75 possessions last season. No other rookie in the three-point era has ever hit those marks.

Why is LaMelo still wearing #2 in the media day shots?

I thought for sure he’d be rocking the #1 by now.

I thought that was a post from last year, and that he still had a window for making the change for the upcoming season.

Asking a player to nominate wanting to change his number in March for the following season seems pretty early, doesn't it?

Alot of players come out with alternate colorways for their first sneaker. I'm am definitely sure the hornets colorways yet to come will be very nice. I don't want these in orange but I do want them in hornets colorways. I have the puma rs dreamer, J Cole's shoe in that Carolina blue. They are great sneakers and the closest comparison comfort and performance wise to Nike. Puma is being slept on. If Melo hits big expect puma to take off more than the dad brand under armor.
