The only thing I can find as of Now is that G Hayward left the game and did not return with a foot sprain. Definitely don't want anything serious, but Boston really needs to win On Sunday vs Char..
Boston will never win 18 BECAUSE of Brad Stevens

My understanding is, Michael Rapaport called him out for being “super sensitive about everything,” which sparked a persisting text message conversation where the two talked trash to each other. Michael Rapaport then shared KD's worst texts with the media while admittedly leaving out many of his own texts. You can Google what was said, from what I saw it was childish trash talk + bad language but I didn't see any slurs, but supposedly there were slurs.

There were four screen shots that I saw Rappaport post, it wasn't great. Hilarious that the media isn't running more with it.

It looks like Woj felt the need to inform without offending the sensibilities of the star.

Damn imagine being worth a couple hundred million and you still only get a half-assed shoulder massage and b-rate stripper on the floor? Hopefully they are all vaccinated.

lmao what a weird scene, dudes just playing poker and video games.

Not surprised in the slightest. Now unlocked to play in the role he's supposed to be in. Couldn't have found a better place to play. Happy for the kid.

I hope IT tears it up in his comeback in N.O., but if he craps out, I wouldn't mind seeing him as a Celtics assistant coach some day. Think he'd be good in the locker room, and a guy our young stars would respect, and then, I know it's a business, and you go for the talent when you can get it, but he was great for us, and even though it was a good basketball decision, trading him was rough from the human side of it. Probably sentimental schmaltz, but I'd like him back with the team in some capacity.

I’m pretty sure Matt Barnes has done it already.

The irony is that he injured his ankle stepping on the foot of......Myles Turner.

Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

I was all in trading for Jrue.
I believed that a backcourt of Marcus-Jrue would have been the best defensive backcourt in history.
But i get that the price was too much.

I also get that the market dictates the contracts nowadays. 40 mil per is too much.
The Bucks had decided to give it to him from the moment they traded for him. They preferred him than CP. If this was a good choice, remains to be seen in the future.

Their trio of Antetokounmpo/Middleton/Jrue is set. They will be contending for the next 3 years.
But now we'll see if their FO is worthy.
They have to surround the trio with low cost good players. Portis is a good example.
Lopez is not.

Overall, happy for Jrue. Always liked him as a player and he seems a great guy too.

DiVincenzo isn't a bad role player either at $3M per.
