This extended stuff with Stanley and RHJ is sad after Nurse's comments recently. How bad must they be for him to call them out.

But cool that OVO Bounce is an actual recruiting opportunity.

That's exactly what I was thinking. It's disappointing that they're already struggling BUT they'll have enough opportunity to make good on their initial statements and be productive for the ball club.

Masai and Bobby are such bosses. In that few minutes they are talking to Hernandez they just ooze "top dogs".

I dont even know why.

Anyone go to the screening?
If so, what game did you get?
I think he's either going to stay, or leave.

I think our real development comes in the G League. Dewan will get some of that. But just like Pat McCaw I wonder about SJ and RJH. Hopefully all they needed was Nurse's speech the other day. A simple directive to focus on D rather than O, which actually is what has kept McCaw relevant.

Nurse, you gotta check with Open Gym before you throw anyone under the bus.

My favourite moments:

-Answering the phone, "world champion Toronto Raptors..."
-Masai just hanging around the draft table handing out vague philosophy while they're on the clock.
-Kyle screaming to his mom on the phone.

I'm still optimistic about RHJ and Johnson. Our organization is probably at a higher level than they've experienced save for RHJ's last couple years in BKN. So I'll give them some time to adapt and raise their game.

Did anyone cry during the celebration? There was something about how it all went down. Like even in the moment the team knew they'd get no respect.

You don't get how hard we work here to be fans of this team. Can't skip the stuff you don't like.

Finished my first season of my career in nba2k20 the other day. I was on the clippers and won them their first ring and got finals mvp. I then left them to join the raptors in the off-season :D
