Man that Meyer's Leonard thing... wild. I've heard my fair share of slurs growing up, especially spending time in the Central Valley of California, but no one around me ever used that one. As a Jew I was familiar with it and aware of it, even its etymological origins (or one theory at least), but never casually.

The fact that he not only used it here, but paused and emphasized is very strange indeed. I wonder if Leondard's a flat earther or Q supporter.

i think he's a "dipshit"

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 20:48 (one month ago) link

leonard is by background a dumb hick who was clearly searching for a word that would be highly offensive. i doubt he is bright enough to know that this is one of the ones that gets you fired.

meyers is also a famous anthem stander for troops, i dont doubt that he's a big dummy but hes also probably a n*z* just look out if he changes his number to 88 or 14

LaMarcus Aldridge will not be with the Spurs moving forward, per Gregg Popovich pic.twitter.com/5CYUPYi76B

ESPN story with ⁦@wojespn⁩ on LaMarcus Aldridge’s looming divorce with the Spurs, who are optimistic that they will be able to trade the seven-time All-Star instead of buying him out: https://t.co/YkbJDu9TQB

— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) March 11, 2021

"He's done everything we've asked," Popovich said. "At this point, we'd just like to do something that will work for him as much for our club, because he deserves that."

Is LMA fully cooked? Or is this as much money-related as production-related?

Judge Roi Behan (Aimless), Thursday, 11 March 2021 01:49 (one month ago) link

he is pretty cooked but i think its more that he wants to play for a contender and the spurs are in a big youth movement too

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 01:52 (one month ago) link

not sure what team could use him and easily trade for his salary, also just seems like he might have a hard time staying on the floor in the playoffs

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 01:52 (one month ago) link

seems like more of a buyout sitch to me but the spurs are talking like they can trade him idk

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 01:53 (one month ago) link

i have no idea what the trade would be. he's going to get bought out.

to denver for gary harris and a minor pick kinda makes sense

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 01:59 (one month ago) link

denver dumps a year of harris salary and get a backup center, spurs get a pick and make their friend lamarcus happy

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:00 (one month ago) link

btw did you guys know the knicks have the lowest payroll in the league, thats a big accomplishment for them

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:03 (one month ago) link

that denver trade isn't bad. depends a lot on your defensive evaluation of those guys.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:07 (one month ago) link

yeah who knows what the nugs want out of life but it could work matts always complaining about hartenstein on here and they play slow so thats nice for aldridge

lag∞n, Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:14 (one month ago) link

yeah. feel like i'd hate to ditch harris just because he could play important defensive minutes in certain playoff matchups, but maybe they don't have the luxury of carrying a guy whose salary is in the high teens just to do that.

Lma for... Meyers Leonard and some stuff

i was too much listening to your accent (Spottie), Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:45 (one month ago) link

LA's 3-point shooting improved lately, but he's absolutely cooked on D. he's not happy about playing off the bench but that is his best chance to play. there are some lower seed playoff/play-in teams in the east that could use him in a season-end push (cha, atl, nyk, was).

lol imagine his blue lives matter ass playing for pop

meyers is out for the season anyway, he’s pure salary filler. i doubt he’d even report to whichever team took him on in a trade

Also surprised they overturned that foul call on the curry three

― i was too much listening to your accent (Spottie), Sunday, April 18, 2021 12:58 AM (nine hours ago) bookmarkflaglink

it did look like he got him on the hand a lil, im thinking maybe what happened was they called the foul on the body contact but when they reviewed it saw that curry kicked his leg out to the side to cause it

lag∞n, Sunday, 18 April 2021 14:31 (yesterday) link

i believe that's what they said on the broadcast. the hand contact was the classic "hi-5" that is supposed to be legal

call all destroyer, Sunday, 18 April 2021 14:51 (yesterday) link

i cant find a clip of the play, which is upsetting as i was under the impression my every whim was supposed to be catered to by the big computer network, but yes i think that is correct

lag∞n, Sunday, 18 April 2021 15:08 (yesterday) link

even in the nba.com play by play where they have links to every play it just says Instant Replay4th Period (10:52 PM EST) with no link!

in today's athletic

Fred VanVleet returned to the lineup in Friday’s win over Orlando, but he will not necessarily play on Sunday against the Thunder. It has become fair to wonder how much the league’s schedule, and determination to get through 72 games for all 30 teams while getting back on track for the league’s preferred October-to-April regular season for next season, has led to the injuries.

“I wouldn’t say (my passion has been) taken away, that’s probably a little bit too strong,” VanVleet said on Saturday. “But there’s certainly ups and downs to this thing more than I’ve ever experienced in my life. To be honest, this is probably the most unpure year of basketball I’ve ever been a part of, just from the whole league and rushing the season back.

“It’s pretty much all about business this year on every level and it’s hard to hide it, you know what I’m saying? The NBA is a great balance of like the pure love and joy of one of the best sports in the world mixed with a billion-dollar industry, and I think this year the industry side has taken precedence over some of the love and the joy.”

Unbeknownst to VanVleet, he was making the observations on the same day that the league fined the Raptors $25,000 for “failing to comply with league policies governing player rest and injury reporting.” This was probably a case of miscommunication more than anything.

I feel like if you poked around you could find nba role players who are good on mic. But the networks probably say “who the hell is that?” On the other hand, we have Ryan Hollins on our tvs for some reason

grant hill and steve smith are pretty good doing games. grant hill is the rare case of a super famous player who made a shit ton of money but has a pretty low key non-blowhardy broadcasting style. just seems like a chill dude overall.

i don't mind d wade on TNT as far as newer guys go but studio is easier than doing a game. espn has had a pretty bad run of ex-players lately with dudes like perk and paul pierce... trying to put my finger on what might unite those two guys... hmm

When sean Grande did twolves games he had my favorite nba announcer joke of all time. George McCloud was fouled going to the basket and a guy fell on him and with perfect timing Grande said “hey you, get off of McCloud!”
