I remember being really high on him and thought he’d fit right into the modern NBA as a point forward type

k3vin k., Tuesday, 20 August 2019 21:40 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah he is a cool player

big city slam (Spottie), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 22:37 (three weeks ago) link

those clippers schedule things are cool

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 22:50 (three weeks ago) link

it wasn't that long ago but feels like royce white would have stood a better chance as a 2019 draftee than a 2012 one.

the one year at Iowa State he balled like crazy

i feel like the "can't fly on airplanes" thing was going to be a hurdle no matter the year...

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 21 August 2019 03:31 (three weeks ago) link

yeah that's gonna lead to some garbage fires

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 14:59 (three weeks ago) link

yeah not sure if that’s wise. he’s at his best in the sprawling aimlessness of talk radio and hot take shows.

Carisis LaVerted (m bison), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 16:42 (three weeks ago) link

hes done plenty of nba work i dont think it will be a big deal. he worked the finals this year iirc.

big city slam (Spottie), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 16:45 (three weeks ago) link

i imagine he's been encouraged and empowered to out-barkley barkley so there should be a lot more manufactured beef with him and players in 2020

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 19:58 (three weeks ago) link

love that shot of steph with the stinkeye

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 21 August 2019 19:58 (three weeks ago) link

I really hope this means SAS will stop doing boxing coverage

No

Matt Armstrong, Thursday, 22 August 2019 21:19 (three weeks ago) link

i remember none of the specifics but it just seemed like it was adversarial between him and the rockets right off the bat

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 August 2019 00:50 (three weeks ago) link

You have to fly on planes in the NBA

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:04 (three weeks ago) link

i'm aware. did you know sometimes people with anxiety actually get treatment and are eventually able to do things like fly?

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:08 (three weeks ago) link

flying isn't real

ciderpress, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:23 (three weeks ago) link

My recollection is that Royce white refused to take medication for anxiety

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:47 (three weeks ago) link

In general he made the situation totally impossible.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:49 (three weeks ago) link

you might be right. like i said i don't remember the details. my point was just that since there seems to be a deeper sensitivity around mental health issues with players in 2019 (for example the commissioner is out there talking about it), he would have stood a better chance today than he did 7 years ago.

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:50 (three weeks ago) link

I honestly think his rookie contract was enough for him

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:53 (three weeks ago) link

shdve just put on the klonopin goggles i wldnt turn it down

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 02:56 (three weeks ago) link

what year is it haha

Lakers completed workouts and meetings with Dwight Howard and Joakim Noah on Thursday and have Mo Speights at the team’s facility today, league sources tell ESPN. Both Howard and Noah left impressions that they could be helpful to the team.

somewhere in LA, a tear rolls down doc rivers cheek

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 August 2019 15:45 (three weeks ago) link

maybe lebron will literally kill dwight

brimstead, Friday, 23 August 2019 19:21 (three weeks ago) link

There’s no way Dwight is unsigned without the “sex scandal” right

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 19:38 (three weeks ago) link

Dwight is such an afterthought to me i didnt even know there was a scandal of that nature

(•̪●) (carne asada), Friday, 23 August 2019 19:45 (three weeks ago) link

dwight howard to the lakers truly the hoop gods are shining upon us today

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 21:17 (three weeks ago) link

Like what does this mean exactly

Dwight Howard's deal with the Lakers will be non-guaranteed, league source tells ESPN. Howard had several meetings with Lakers officials, and they'll give him a chance to show he's made changes in how he conducts himself. Lakers players were involved in process.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 21:54 (three weeks ago) link

It means the Laker front office can drop Dwight like a hot potato if they feel like it. And the 'Lakers players' (aka Lebron) view Dwight with deep suspicion.

no farting in the locker room

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:07 (three weeks ago) link

Javale McGee is on the roster!

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:10 (three weeks ago) link

If you want to join the center rotation with javale McGee you need to conduct yourself with dignity

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:10 (three weeks ago) link

2 This is gonna 2 be fun

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:19 (three weeks ago) link

javale is a good teammate!

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:19 (three weeks ago) link

They seem like similarly dumb goofballs to me!

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:21 (three weeks ago) link

goofballs for sure. but javale knows what he is and is willing to buy into whatever role they need him to be ... dwight clearly has not (yet).

big city slam (Spottie), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:23 (three weeks ago) link

dwight wld like to be a goofball but like the hawks cheered when he got traded, theres something else going on there

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:25 (three weeks ago) link

What did Dwight do exactly that has given him this rep? I mean this is written like they’re signing JR Rider

Howard came to meet Lakers after dropping 25 pounds; showed his back was healthy. Lakers want him to protect rim/rebound in limited role. There was sense Howard realized he hit "rock bottom" and had been humbled. Still they'll judge him on actions, not words. He's been warned.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:26 (three weeks ago) link

feel like hes prob just insanely annoying and lame, tough to be around

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:27 (three weeks ago) link

It’s just hard for me to believe the sexuality stuff isn’t in play here

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:28 (three weeks ago) link

u mean the rumor that hes bi

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:29 (three weeks ago) link

Yes

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:34 (three weeks ago) link

Dwight is considered bi on twitter which means every player thinks he’s bi

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:34 (three weeks ago) link

tbf twitter is my main source of information too

lag∞n, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:37 (three weeks ago) link

dwight was a target of mockery and abuse well before the sexuality stuff came out

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:39 (three weeks ago) link

obv it could've intensified it. nba fans are pretty enlightened as far as sports fandoms go, but that's "tallest midget" stuff.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 23 August 2019 22:41 (three weeks ago) link

He missed almost the whole season with a butt injury which added to it

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 23 August 2019 22:41 (three weeks ago) link

...lmao
