Is there more about this proposal? Would they jump into the playoffs?

DJI, Thursday, 30 April 2020 00:51 (four months ago) link

i think i read that the players will need a month to get back in shape.

simmons and russillo were saying that teams have an incentive to get to 70 games b/c otherwise they'll have to refund some of the money they get from the local sports networks. right now teams are between 63 and 67 games played.

NBA TV has game 7 of the pacers/knicks '94 East Conference finals at 9pm ET, one of the best Ewing performances of his career

here's a dumbass arbitrary list espn is rolling out we can argue about if you guys want

Clay, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:17 (four months ago) link

i mad abt it but not mad enough to write a lot of sentences. chris paul is at #40 and he's too low bc a bunch of wack PGs are ahead of him

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:22 (four months ago) link

getting on the list = good stats and a relatable story
position on the list = who has the better story

A is for (Aimless), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:24 (four months ago) link

giannis high as he is is getting silly

Clay, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:27 (four months ago) link

i don't even really like chris paul and that ranking is insane

vince over ray allen huh

fatuous salad (symsymsym), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:35 (four months ago) link

mcgrady over both of 'em xp

Clay, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:36 (four months ago) link

yeah wtf

fatuous salad (symsymsym), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:36 (four months ago) link

i refuse to be tempted by this content

circles, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:38 (four months ago) link

i saw enough to see that some of the blurbs are written by the espn beat guys who, tbc, are great as beat writers but are way out of their league doing all time lists

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 03:41 (four months ago) link

I hate these lists so much. They really need to split them into like pre 1970 or pre 3 pointer or pre nba/aba merger... somewhere in the 70s. The game is just so different. Then they just do stuff like put giannis and brow way up here based on what they could potentially do. Just hate it all I’m sick of player rankings

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 05:06 (four months ago) link

Ya it's just click bait

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 05:38 (four months ago) link

The list is totally fine except for kobe being top 10

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 15:55 (four months ago) link

wow he's the entire top 10, these Laker fans need to be stopped

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 17:01 (four months ago) link

wow nba is switching from spalding to wilson startgin 2020-2021. thats pretty crazy news i think. nearly 40 years of being the nab ball..

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 19:44 (four months ago) link

i dislike that

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 19:47 (four months ago) link

same... seems weird. someone messed up

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 19:54 (four months ago) link

My guess is Spalding wasn't seeing much revenue generated as a result of being official game ball. I almost never see Spaldings in the wild; Wilson's are the go-to for all rec league, HS, pickup games.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:15 (four months ago) link

of course, that's their own fault

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:15 (four months ago) link

yah i see them a ton for outdoor use but theyve messed up a ton i think. they priced the nba genuine game ball way out of reach of normal people at like $170. then they got rid of their 2nd best ball and the best bang for your buck ball the TF-1000. then they tried to course correct and brought it back with a legacy edition then tried to come back with the classic edition but it was just never the same. ive still got an unopened original TF-1000 in my closet.

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:27 (four months ago) link

i hate wilson composite balls so much. all of them.

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:28 (four months ago) link

they say the wilson nba ball is going to be same specs and leather as the spalding so i doubt it will be much different. hopefully cheaper!

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:28 (four months ago) link

they gotta switch off every 37 years it's the rule

ciderpress, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:47 (four months ago) link

ya Spottie you're exactly right, that's what I meant by it's their own fault.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 21:29 (four months ago) link

I splurged and got a game ball few years ago. Fucking thing went flat after being used like 1/2 dozen times.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 21:29 (four months ago) link

Oh that’s not good you shoulda been able to get a replacement

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 21:55 (four months ago) link

i have a wilson composite ball now and i kinda like it its plush

to me they have the opposite effect of what you want. they feel great when you grab it at first or dribble around or shoot a bit.. but as soon as you get sweaty they (depending on the ball) get harder and more slippery. the leather ball is the opposite, feels like a brick when you grab it at first but one game in there's nothing better. and you can use the glass with way more control cos it doesnt grip the glass it's more of a natural bounce off of it.

Spottie, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 22:24 (four months ago) link

obv this is all personal pref but i always wanted to play with the ball the pros played with and it always just felt right to me

game leather ball obvs the best xp cant use dem outdoors tho and as we covered they cost way too much

lag∞n, Wednesday, 13 May 2020 23:59 (four months ago) link

it funny a lot of people dont like the leather ball i think mostly cause theyre not used to them because they never use them because they cost too much
