They have to qualify for the Olympics through this though. Surely they will, but still..

Backup scrubs can qualify. When it comes time for the main event, are they going to say LeBron and company can't play because they didn't go to the World Cup?

Magic (allegedly) sinking the Lakers' Kawhi hopes with his blabby mouth is the best sports story of the century.

Guess being invited to "Team USA" isn't the honor it used to be, lots of players declining. Trickling down to bench players :oldunsure:

Saw on BR suggestion that they invite Carmelo Anthony.......would be awesome

True but he was a drag at FSU. 

and now Christ is signed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Sixers for god knows what reason.

Could be first player from Chad ever to plan an in an NBA game though, which is nice...

Bulls minutes are weird too like having LaVine getting the majority of his minutes at PG.  But I’m ignoring that because they’re giving a 52% chance at making the playoffs. :thumbup:

I think they do have a realistic chance of making the playoffs, but they are bunched in a with several teams and will likely be fighting for a 7 or 8 seed IF everything does right.

1) Health (the core has barely played together over the past 2 seasons).

2) Assuming health, is there 1-2 all-stars (Zach and Lauri) in the mix?

3) Can WCJ and Santoransky be NBA caliber starting players? WCJ got good reviews from most season so think most are optimistic for him.  Santoransky is an interesting player and sort of an under the radar signing. Can play multiple positions and that should help the Bulls as well if he can prove to a be worthy of starting minutes.

4) Depth - Probably should be higher on this list given the 1st point, but signing T.Young should help up-front.

Overall, I think they do have talent, but not sure (probably doubtful) there is any top line talent so even if they improve, the question of landing a star player will likely be the major question that remains next off-season.

Means they dont see Shake as an option at PG. 

So:

PG:  Simmons, Neto, Burke

SG:  Richardson, Zhaire, Shake, Korkmoz(sp)

SF:  Harris, Thybulle, Ennis

PF:  Horford, Scott, Bolden

C : Embiid, O’brien

Triggered, #######. I know that's a bad thing to be because Joe Rogan's Netflix special is also called Triggered. I guess the real question now is, am I a beta cuck? Should I not tell people my pronouns? Back to the drawing board. Thanks @Moe.

I know what very little of what any of that means - triggered was a bad word for me to use I think

Unbelievable that he goes from that picture to a left-handed shot. There's another shot a little later in the video and it's the same thing. Incredible. 

Also those Phillies shorts are amazing, I must have

Before people go nuts over this, Simmons has on multiple  outfits and is playing against multiple sets of opponents in the video. So this is clearly a compilation of footage from multiple days at a gym. Sure, the shots and moves in the video are nice, but there could be 100 missed shots not pictured here.

My son has been playing ball for years. I could make a similar video that makes him look like whatever specialist you want in a video. Zion for dunks, Curry for threes, ball handling and getting to the rim like Kyrie, or a shutdown defensive specialist. In reality, he is none of those. But a propaganda piece can make anyone look outerwordly.

I think you misread the vibe of the thread. People are still dumping on Ben for his weird shot .

interesting.  will be for his age 30-32 seasons.  probably a good move for him, since his defense will presumably be even worse.

Yeah, I was going to post that if this is a promotion of "good shooting Ben Simmons" it isn't a good promo.  Shooting an awkward fade away from long 2 isn't what he needs to do to win ballgames.

NBA Playoff odds are out.

Is there a safer return on investment than 10% that the Celtics make the playoffs?  The only way that team doesn't make the playoffs is if they lose half the team in a plane crash or some kind of plague like illness.  There isn't a single combo of players that is so crucial to their success that they wouldn't make the playoffs without them.  Even with multiple season ending injuries, I don't see any way they don't at least land the 8 seed.  I think they are a massive longshot to even make it to the ECF, but to not finish in the top half of the East would take an act of God.

Sam Vecenie and Cole Zwicker on Game Theory a few days ago said that they thought Caris Levert would get an extension of 4 for 115 or 120, which kind of blew my mind.
