Thybulle has confirmed that he's not fully vaccinated and won't be available for the two games in Toronto.

What's weird is apparently he got one shot but never got the second, because reasons.

Pisses me off. All of his "reasons" amounted to "I did what was best for ME". So screw over your team when another shot wouldn't have amounted to a hill of beans in your life.

If they lose those away games, he'll get blamed. If they win those away games, then everyone will say "we don't need his defense" to pull out wins. I don't see a way for this to not be a lose/lose situation for him.

And it's not like he had a bad reaction to the first shot, at least he didn't say he did. And if he only wanted one shot, he could have gotten J&J and been considered vaccinated. Just weird.

I listened to his whole interview and I'm also perturbed that the vaccine doesn't fully prevent infection or fully inhibit my ability to spread it. But I still maintain that to not finish the vaccination routine is not only reckless but also selfish.

I swear no lead is safe with the Clips in the playoffs. I guess it makes for thrilling games but Iíd prefer not having a near heart attack every night. Cmon towns fouled out and thereís half a quarter left.

Re: 2022 NBA Playoffs Thread

Glen Taylor is a Timberwolves owner and this week they had to put down a ton of chickens on a factory farm he owns due to recent local bird flu outbreaks. She was wearing a shirt that said something about him burning animals alive. Thing is, the bird flu thing is pretty big news right now and this move had to happen, sad as it is.

As for KAT, we went to the Spurs game and the Bulls game last week. He sat out the Bulls to rest up for tonight, UT I was disappointed by how much time he spent on the court throwing out his arms for uncalled fouls with the Spurs, despite his own fouls left and right. Sounds like he needed more rest. He's a good player, I wish he was more relaxed tonight.

My favorite Laker player named Russell.

All the talk is going to be about Pat Bevís revenge but Russell, Ant (except for losing his mind on that one possession) and the crowd brought them back. Congrats to the twolves.
