And now it’s gotten worse in games with NO crowd.

Adam Silver has completely dropped the ball with the insanity of the technical fouls, and watching guys get techs left and right is ruining the games. This is a political decision from the top down.

Stop the madness now and let the players have fun and play with emotion. It’s so weak on Silver’s behalf.

Genuinely curious what penalty the players would get for fighting the virtual fans.

I dont like free throws at all. Revert the league back to 90s allow fist fighting, handchecking. Its better than disrupting the flow of the game and gets rid of soft players.

Also, it is just silly to say Nurk is in a bad situation in Portland, yet a more stacked team like Boston would allow Nurkic to thrive much more. But based on some past posts I've seen (either really bad takes or trolling, not sure which), I know not to take that poster seriously.


The next good take that guy has will be his first


I perfectly predicted the exact outcomes of 3 of their past 5 playoff appearances and predicted they wouldnt be in the playoffs this year.

3 out of 5 doesn't sound that impressive depending on how specific you got. But that doesn't change how terrible your takes have been that I have seen in recent weeks.

I actually really like the 1 free throw idea. Make or miss all or nothing. Keep the game moving.

I could totally see Pat Beverly going nuts and throwing haymakers at a virtual fan...actually I take it back, I WANT to see that.
