The guy told several times over the years that he is never going to forget how broke he was in his 20s. And you see it in his actions...

The report about him giving his respirator to another patient seems to be incorrect. Unfortunately, the report about his death seems to be correct :(

And I am left with nothing but an oath that gleams like a sword

Oh man its becoming clear the current covid19 bill in congress is a massive giveaway to large corporations with only minimal help for everyday Americans and small businesses No healthcare improvements for citizens in the bill. Takes way to long to actually get the payment.

Eh - it's not perfect but the enhanced employment is a huge deal.

There's going to have to be more relief anyways - this isn't nearly enough.

So this is today's number of infected in SOUTH Florida, specifically Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Broken down by city. A reminder for all of you; only the critically ill and first responders are tested. That's it. I would bet the house that the actual number is immeasurably higher than this.

This is how our leaders are handling the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as of today, March 26, 2020

(I want to appeal to moderators that this isn't "agenda" on its own, just because a poster screams that it is repeatedly, or attacks me for posting it. These are indeed factual real things that are going on in regards to the virus, the handling of the virus, that are current and pertinent to all of us, so we can make the best decisions in our lives. Stay informed).

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo-
“If you rethought that or had time to analyze that public health strategy, I don't know that you would say quarantine everyone,”
“I don't even know that that was the best public health policy. Young people then quarantined with older people was probably not the best public health strategy because the younger people could have been exposing the older people to an infection.“
you really want this guy?

Part of Sixers ownership doing some good.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...
