Meanwhile Kyrie tweets this:

maybe he's just saying to be yourself, but man even if that's the case read the room...

The Bucks have hired a full-time female play by play announcer for their TV broadcasts. I believe the previous Bucks announcer retired after last season.

Itís so stupid when people try to say itís all about fear. Maybe because theyíre afraid of the needle and want to look like tough guys.

Kyrie is the last person Iíd look to for anything involving science, though.

Doubtful they will be a Clipper by the time this area gets built. I'm glad they are getting their own place. The Staples Center basically belongs to the Lakers as they are the most popular out of the two teams. Three tenants is a lot for one arena.

That actually looks pretty nice.

Ben Simmons is guaranteed half his contract (or it gets paid) on October 1. So he'll be traded soon I think.

I'm desensitized to him at this point. He's been part of the Celtics local broadcast for a while now.

NBA Today used to be the name of the League's newspaper back in the 1980's.

I looked at the prices on ebay and some issues range from 20 to 30 dollars.

I have a soft spot for Perkins from his Celtics days, and I haven’t seen all that much of his analysis, but from what I have seen he seems to specialize in the hot takes, which I guess is the way these days.

I didn't realize he was Duke's all-time leading scorer.

Re: Official 2021 NBA Off-Season Thread

More rumblings that Ben Simmons won't report to camp with the Sixers next week.

I hope he doesn't just get his way and get traded (for pennies on the dollar no less). This is a guy on a max contract, and the reason there are problems between him and his team are the result of him and his play, not the team treating him poorly IMO. This isn't like football where all the risk of a contract falls on a player, this is a fully guaranteed contract. So hopefully he suffers some from this tactic. And/or gets traded to the Kangz.

That said, he has the potential to be a game changer, he doesn't even need to learn how to shoot from the field, he simply has to be able to make free throws (so he can drive without fear of being fouled).
