    So take your Ball and go home, Daddy?

    The signing of Lance Stephenson seems to fill that bill.

    Leonards stated intent is to sign with the Lakers next summer as FA. So the Lakers dont have to trade for him at the wrong price.

    Also means they dont need to over extend other players this summer.

    The world now knows how badly Trump’s father farked him up. Have to give Lonzo credit if he turns out to be a good man and teammate.

    Australia/Philippines FIBA qualifier erupts into a brawl. Philippines ended up playing 3 on 5, then 2 on 5, then they called the game at 1 on 5.

    4 year deal means his oldest kid gets to spend all four years at the same High school that he thinks has NBA talent, and he hates Dan Gilbert. Without trades, he still probably gets Kawhi next offseason and can contend when GSW's luxury tax finally overwhelms themselves.

    It's like LeBron is trying to clear 50/20 mode on FNAF Ultimate Custom Night.

    There's a new game mode that allows you to build a custom round containing pretty much every animatronic from all the previous games attacking you at once (50 in total, all set to 20 difficulty.)

    The creator himself suspects it's impossible, though there's a Youtuber who has won a round of 46/20.

    Dan Gilbert wrote LeBron another letter, and this time, it's not in Comic Sans.

    Gambling that Kerr, Curry, Durant and company can have a Belichick type impact on him, I guess
