Everyone liked the 'Regular Degular' in the first 2019-2020 thread, so I kept it. I hope y'all like the new digs and the post All Star break second half brings much joy in Zion. And elsewhere.

WOJ: Guard Reggie Jackson has agreed to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons and plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. Jackson gives the Clippers second unit a starting-level playmaker and scorer. Lakers had hoped to sign Jackson too, sources said.

clippers keep stocking up lol lakers

kind of a weird choice for him he'd have way more opportunities with the lakers. would probably be their starting pg

Irving's injury is best described as a deterioration in the shoulder. When he discussed his return in late December, Irving acknowledged that he took a cortisone shot at the time in hopes of avoiding surgery. The reality is that he has been playing with on and off discomfort

Guys with no live sports to watch why don’t we start a really dumb argument that gets way too heated? That’s what we’ve always done. Like why don’t we debate whether Solomon Hill had a better career than Dion Waiters

why would the Knicks do that?? not that Brooks was good but like, he was an active NBA player and *checks notes* not 52

that's even before Dolan right?

im watching ESPN... kd is playing derrick jones jr in 2k. idk guys. watching people play video games has never interested me.

its only good w/ high skill 1v1 stuff like competitive fighting games imo

ciderpress, Saturday, 4 April 2020 00:00 (six days ago) link

i tuned in for a couple minutes and it looked like they were playing on a fairly low difficulty but i haven't played 2k in a million years so grain of salt

2k is more fun on the lower difficulty setting ime
