Any chance NBA.com improves their search mechanism? :cry:

Seriously? The play index was the best feature by far, it's the reason I started using sports reference back in like 2008.


Likewise (probably roughly 2008 for me too, in fact, although I was on other sites like 82games before then) - Play Index is honestly such a fantastic feature, especially in recent years when they added things such as the lineup and plus/minus finder too.

Here's their explanation:
https://www.sports-reference.com/blog/2020/05/play-index-tools-are-moving-to-stathead-com/

In summary:
* They don't want to have their site packed with advertising and they're apparently losing money on the Play Index feature
* Subscription is $8 a month (which is $12 a month down under, aka, the rough equivalent of something like Netflix for me) for just basketball
* $16 a month for the Play Index for all sports they provide (rather than just basketball)

Well, it happened today.

Sigh.

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

I have the opposite problem.

I been trapped in the house since March so over the last month or so I've been walking like 10+ miles a day because I ran out of things to do in the house, and I don't snack so it's not like I'm eating more. I usually eat poorly when I'm out the house (like getting lunch everyday at work) but since I'm stuck at home I've just been buying healthy groceries and lean meat.

My job is making us go back into the office soon so I'm thinking I'll start going to the gym when that happens since I'll be out of my professional quarantine anyway. I gotta put on at least 15 lbs back. I've lost damn near 50 lbs in quarantine so far, a large amount of it muscle.

If u lose muscle u gain it back like mad, i havent worked out about two months before quarentine and got pretty skinny, 3 days of working out and eating somwhat healthy (but not bulking, lean bulking at most but prolly was eating below maintainence) and i was noticably bigger already, its faster than noob gains

I stopped because i got lazy and ill im trying to get is a jawline over getting ripped but still

I don't care about getting ripped. Just don't like being weak. Like my bench needs to be 225 at least, squat 350 at least, etc. I gotta get my minimum standards back.

Strength prolly comes back faster than physique does, at least to a certain standard

Yeah. I've always been one for functional strength over physique. Looking good is cool but I'm sexy anyway. :D

Rob Manfred is a horrible commissioner. Don't tell the local ratings are still good, the MLB's process is flawed and they will soon be an NHL sized sport at this pace. A cheating scandal, juiced balls and a soon to be cancelled season is a deep blow to credibility.

Yeah, MLB is going to take a hit - though it is worth mentioning it's much harder to do a bubble for MLB than say, the NBA or NHL.

Not sure how many baseball fans are on here, but the Baseball Prosepctus is probably the most comprehensive book about a sport I've ever seen. It's like reading a Concordance of the Bible, except it's about baseball.

And on that note, Vlad Guerrero Jr. needs to stop hitting so many damn ground balls.
