  1. they have a stake in the company doing well, yes. it's still an informative write-up for someone trying to learn about the moments and what makes a $20,000 Lebron hologram dunk with Serial No. 20 worth more than a $5,000 Kevin Durant 3 pointer with Serial No. 85. like I said, long term I can't imagine these holding their current valuations. with that said, the comparison to the Cheese Wizards is silly. the NBA is a partner here. players are discussing these on social media and going into the discord chat to interact with fans. Mark Cuban is talking about it on CNBC. Otis started a thread about them on footballguys.com! in all honesty, i'm probably closer to your view than I am to that of a TopShot bull. but they did something like $50 million in volume over the weekend. when I don't understand something that everyone else seems to be in on, my first instinct is to try to learn more before dismissing it.
  2. 🥱 but now that I see you're aligned so hard against this I may have to reconsider
  3. some resources to read for people new to this https://dappradar.com/blog/how-to-value-nba-top-shot-nfts https://evaluate.market/
  4. the nba is partnered with this. so far Josh Hart and Josh Green have done pack openings on youtube and touted this on their social media platforms. prices spiked afterwards both times. imagine what happens when james hardens twitch streams a pack opening from the strip club.
  5. got in on this a couple weeks ago. don't see it as a long term play but i'm holding for now. playoffs are my guess for when the prices peak.
  6. well i wouldn't call price movement in btc the last 3 years relaxing, but the point is taken.
  7. pls come back bby

  8. what’s going to happen with pickoff plays? ghostman on first situation? no baserunners at all? it really isn’t as low risk as you think it is, and relative to other sports doesn’t mean anything because baseball players and owners aren’t thinking about it like that (and why would they!)
  9. of course. the pga is planning to restart next month and plans to have testing in place for all players and staff, and golf is certainly lower risk than baseball. the KBO is playing baseball right now, but only with tests for all player and staff. if any legitimate pro league restarts without a strict testing regimen then i will stand corrected. but it isn’t going to happen.
  10. more to lose as in they stand to lose more money by not playing a season. absolutely not true. the NBA has already said they will not acquire mass testing until team cities have enough tests to do mass testing themselves. they don’t want to take tests out of the hands of ordinary citizens. the NFL will likely have no problem doing this.
  11. with that said, i do think mlb will figure out how to use mass testing to reasonably ensure player safety and come back in july. but when they come back, less player contact won’t have anything to do with why.
  12. it’s simply not true. any risk is seen as unacceptable risk. the league with the best chance to reopen is the league with the most to lose and most likely to use its power and influence to acquire mass testing. that is the nfl.
  13. the difference in risks becomes meaningless past a minimally acceptable risk, which baseball is already well past. yes there is less physical contact than in football, but still plenty of contact and risk. locker rooms are a thing as capella pointed out, germs can spread through the baseball like mquinn has said. the catcher, batter and umpire are right on top of eachother. outfielders collide all the time, players round bases and slide into second to break up double plays. you can try to reconfigure things but there is essentially no getting past some risk, which is unacceptable. football hasn’t actually figured anything out, its season just happens to be 4 months from now so they have some time. baseball is trying to restart in july, and when they do it won’t have anything to do with the level of physical contact, but rather how many people they can test to ensure no one playing in or involved in a game has the virus.
