Rose has the same amount of MVPs as Giannis. If he gets in so does Rose. It’s plain logic. :wink:

My BIL has MS. Devastating is a kind way to put it. Best wishes to him.

Everybody is different but this doesn’t have to be devastating if he responds well to treatment. My wife has MS and after a rocky start has stabilised well on her current treatment. Wish him all the best.

Co worker buried here daughter at 28. Not trying to one up you. I hope he ends up like your wife.

It’s an awful disease, no doubt about it. My wife is lucky they found it early enough and she responded to treatment. Many other people like you say aren’t lucky. But it’s not an automatic death/disability sentence. Blatt might be fortunate enough to have a less aggressive type of MS which means he can carry on with life as he knows it with minimal impact. I hope this is the case for him as the alternate is grim like your poor coworker :(

Rose did make a NCAA title game and almost won it, but then it was vacated, so unclear if that helps or hurts.

Not favorable for Rose based on this.

Though the criteria does not include MVPs, but does include height for some reason?

It's just a predictive model.

T-Mac being in the HoF over Rose is questionable at the very least

Tony Snell has mental real estate in Booker’s head. Also, Booker is a bitch.

Personally, I think anyone who has remained a Bucks fan through the 1990's should automatically be in HOF.

I don't know what's more depressing as a Suns fan. Sarver being a terrible owner, or having to bank on poor man's Michael Redd errr, I mean Devin Booker to carry your franchise.

I am going to presume the former, because many of their fans think the latter is a budding superstar - or already one.

Imagine feeling like you have to defend him as a fan too.

I meant to say "smart" Suns fans.

I've gotten really sick of all of the open gym videos. They're so pointless. Guys are playing defense at 10% of the level most would in an actual game. I don't see how anyone actually benefits from playing in these games.

Also, I feel like Snell is in most of these videos as a defender/weakside offensive guy. He must be playing pickup all day all over the country.

T-Mac played in 988 career games.

Rose played in 592 career games.

Think the game difference is quite significant.

T-Mac is a 7x all star and 7x All-NBA player (1st team 2x), 2x scoring champion, no-brainer HoFer. Clearly one of the best players of his generation.

And T-Mac was awesome to watch! Guessing the dissenter wasn't old enough to witness T-Mac rain hellfire on the Bucks in the playoffs.
