If Hayward continues at this pace then there is absolutely nothing wrong with that signing.
*Insert witty signature here.*

Mainly about other teams and their players, although there's a quick mention of Jaylen being on fire.

Or offer the great T Waters + TPE for A Gordon !!! Who says NO???? :D



More importantly, I say yes. They can have Edwards and a draft pick or two as well.

Unsure how Sixers will be able to play against the Nuggets later. They only have six available players as of latest report. If both them and Pacers lose, Cs could find themselves tied for the best record in the NBA after 20 days of bball. Which I totally didn't expect.

Read on Twitter




The Sixers only have 6 Players able to suit up.

It may be time to give all NBA players that Vaccine.
Or even halt the 1st Half of the Season?

NFL was able to sustain this, but I guess when you have 53 players plus a practice squad a few players missing a few weeks at a time isn't that big of a deal.

Football is also outside on a larger field with equipment & helmets limiting truly close contact.

People didn't follow the rules in the bubble, imagine what they do now! Now you don't have to sneak women in. Only takes one player to take out the entire team.

Will anyone be surprised if we find out Lebron's already had the vaccine? (We won't find out though.)

I presume they just added it to the steroids/Rogaine cocktail he normally takes.

Maxey with 39/7/6.

I swear Nesmith better get some serious burn against Miami.

Love that we’ve nailed the Pritchard pick but we really need to see something from Nesmith and Langford when he’s back.

With Stevens does it just come down to being able to play in his switching defense before he'll consider giving a player time? Or is Nesmith just that bad in practice? I wonder how many of these other rookies going off would have gotten playing time under Brad.

Nice game with him short handed but he did take 33 shots in a losing effort. They are nice stats but he’s the type of player that needs to be ball dominant to accomplish that.

Nesmith projects as an off ball player which is honestly more valuable on our team right now Jordan Crawford was once NBA player of the week when we let him play as a ball dominant pg.

Have you watched him? He has absolutely no idea where to be on either end and he's got stone feet so he can't make up for it with quickness.

Miami should have to forfeit this game if they don't win by 40. Washington is on a back to back without Beal, Westbrook and Bryant. I'm also thinking Herro is an even worse defender than I thought.
