Its true, call it all game. I have the same issue with the NBA refs as well. Just sitting in waffle house now and hearing people gripe about getting robbed

I know I'm slightly biased, but for all those complaining about the last call of fsu-notre dame... When Lou holtz says it was an obvious offensive pass interference on Notre dame, it kind of baffles me how anybody could argue that it was even questionable.
Meh. Doubt it. Worst case is skip bayless takes that narrative and runs with it for the next two years
1 week, 1 day ago on Kevin Durant likely out 6-8 weeks with ‘Jones fracture’
O heck no. But I'd rather start Reggie and see what happens/ pray for the best with telfair on the bench than start lamb
If you want me to be honest and ruin my humor, I think telfair ends up being surprisingly serviceable, but to stick with my train of thoughtlets just tank because we're gonna be terrible,
Thabeet was both misunderstood and awful at basketball. Are you implying the same about telfair?
This logic worked fairly well with Lazar. Maybe should give it a shot
99 moves... Leading to a shot clock violation
Yes. He's great at creating high levels of disappointment for fans of teams he plays for
No doubt I would start Reggie. Scotty though, never know
Hmmm... Where's @thunderchick when we need her
No. Savvy, but no
May as well do both then and get a shot at mudiay and co
I am tanking fantasy league so hard right now. Onlya little over half my team has played and two players have negative points. #gmoftheyear
Thunders record 1-19 during the stretch, with the one win coming on a 95% shooting night from Russ with 18 self assists against the spurs in the middle of a 10 game win streak with everyone healthy and us coming off 4 games in 5 nights against playoff teams.
Shooting percentage is 23%. 18% from 3 on 20 attempts per game, all either contested, pull ups, or both.
So a) this sucks and b) Russ is going to average 40-20-10 on 115% usg

So Reggie and Mitch BOTH hurt?! I gotta stop leaving for days at a time. Seems like something bad always happens.
@True Champ Jones III We have the same technology over here, and actually several NBA teams are using it. One of the companies pushing it in the southeast, I believe is named CryoGenix or something like that. Their machines cost about $40-60k. I question the benefits of them in certain applications, but for an 11 man soccer team or a 5-8 man NBA playing roster's halftime recovery, there's nothing out there touching it right now.

DT interview process for writing position:
1) Here, drink this purple drink. If it tastes good, move on to question 2.
2) Do you agree with the Harden trade? A) Wholeheartedly. Management never makes mistakes, not even with Mullens or Aldrich. B) Yeah, but I could see how people question it. C) kind of D) No. If you answered A, move to question 3.
3) Better player, (insert current Thunder player here), or anybody else, unless we lose to them in the playoffs and need a good excuse. If you answered current Thunder player, move to step 4.
4) Can you write really long articles without falling asleep at your computer? If yes, you're hired!
2 weeks ago on A Brave New World: What the NBA’s massive new TV deal means for OKC’s future
@okcjim so we gonna get Harden back?
@Joo_ivey i stopped reading shortly thereafter
@King of Carrot Flowers the third I'm probably jumping the gun, but I see him as a better PG prospect than anybody in the last several drafts. Just off the top of my head only Wall and Irving pop out to me as prospects at that position with a similar amount of promise. Physically he's monstrous and ultra explosive, but he also already plays the game with pace and patience. Really intriguing prospect.
@f5alcon @d21 But otherwise, two PG's in top of the incoming freshman class. Very shallow after that. As far as returning college PG's, Marcus Paige will probably blossom quite a bit (17.5 ppg last year for UNC), about 5-10 other guys who could come on strong, but as far as top tier talent, outside the two diaper dandies and Paige, probably not a ton unless we get some surprises
@f5alcon @d21 Emmanuel Mudiay is the real real deal
Ok back to my comment earlier that I didn't expound upon.
There's two ways to look at my idea of an open market with financial fair play provisions in place.
1) The Thunder were one of the most profitable franchises in the league, which would mean we would be near the top end of allowed spending.
2) Doesn't matter because cheep
Now. Commence arguing.
Obviously never happening, but an open, capless market in the NBA with a financial fair play rule similar to international soccer would be so much fun

@Pancakes and Blouses @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard never. I'll be the Warriors. Bombs away
So, back to more important matters. Who's getting 2k on Xbox One? I've got mine pre-ordered, but probably won't get here until late next week. Looks better and better with every leak
@Pancakes and Blouses @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard Sadly I forgot to include this in my resume. That might explain why I had so little success in my job search in prior years lol
So I can finally return from my hiatus. The last month has been nothing short of incredible for me. I've spent the last 4 years working for either free or a very small monthly stipend in an effort to switch from being an athletic trainer with a terrible job to a strength coach with any job. Finally, all the work has paid off. So, to recount:
Sep 13- Got married
Sep 16-17- Interviewed at FSU
Sep 18- Got a call asking if I'd be interested in working for (can't disclose) an NBA team
Sep 22- Went to dinner with strength coach of said team
Sep 23- Interviewed as one of two finalists for the position
Sep 25- Got passed over by __ NBA team because the other candidate had "more experience"
Two days ago- Got hired for my first full time strength coach job at FSU!!
Sorry to brag, but I'm so dang excited I had to share. Can't express how blessed and thankful I am.
Darnell's drunk so much kool-aid, he's not going to be able to stop peeing for the next 72 hours
I feel like using Skip Bayless to provide perspective into what people's lack of perspective is, puts this article more out of perspective than people's perspective of KD is or ever will be.

For those of you who haven't been keeping up with your NBA 2k15 news leaks, the most important information of all has surfaced. Pharrell will indeed wear his hat in-game.
We can all breath a huge sigh of relief now.
So I take it we still have our core of Perk, Brooks, and Lamb/ Roberson as a starter intact?
@Di_charden anybody who wishes 30 pounds on a player in a 5 month time span is just asking for them to get diabetes
@f5alcon @Marko (Lacoste baby) I spend hours playing Battlefield 4, but my kill to death ratio has steadily gotten worse as I realize how much fun it is to try to do as many super cool "battlefield moments" as possible instead of winning. For all we know, lambo might come out with the meanest pre-game trick shot routine in league history and an even worse handle.
@Marko (Lacoste baby) Joel Embiid is the GOAT tweeter and it's really not even close
