    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    when do we find out who shot the innocent victims? Surely there must be some forensic evidence, right? Anyone know who started firing first? I assume it was the criminals in the truck but I haven’t seen it definitively stated. Did the police try to deescalate the situation at all?

    The Impeachment Thread

    They’re going to make the entire thing about how the democrats have been searching for any excuse to impeach the President. They aren’t even going to try to look into what Trump did or didn’t do wrong, they’re just going to give the presidents men a platform to declare him innocent while painting democrats as out of control. if you exoect any different, you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment.

    IT didn’t play. Defense was better tonight. Coincidence?

    Chiozza is butt. Refs are letting them assault Beal.

    Nothing less than a 1st round pick.

    We’re in midseason form on injuries and it’s not even Christmas.
  8. Fair point, the media does seem to pretend that tweets are poll data. The noisy periphery can normalize their ranting these days though precisely because they are able to be so loud.
  9. You know what, I’m buying into this. I’m only interested in voting for hispanics, because I am Hispanic. Male preferably, as I am male. In fact, why stop there? I want a straight catholic hispanic male candidate that has at least one child. I’m just not interested in anyone else because they can’t understand or represent me. So Julián Castro, who i think is kind of an ass, gets my support by default. Nice to have this settled. And I’m doing this because I stand for justice! (the future is stupid)
  10. I just wanted to pop in and say that Booker and Castro making the failure of Kamala Harris’ campaign somehow evidence of racism, is disappointing. They slam Trump for attacking the press, rightfully, but then turn around and call the media racist because Harris ran a bad campaign? They also criticize the party for potentially lacking diversity in the debates, largely because they themselves have yet to qualify, which implies the party is racist. Wonderful messaging in the lead up to a critical election.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a 360 dunk in a game that was for anything more than style points.

    That just looks like lack of confidence and too little time working on it. When you don’t believe in your shot you start doing weird stuff like trying to guide the ball or otherwise screwing the release up. Once he spends an offseason or two getting up thousands of threes it will be muscle memory like the rest. There’s a lot of hesitation in his game that speaks to a lack of confidence at the nba level. He clearly hasn’t adjusted to the speed of the game yet.

    1- The three point shot will come with time. He can shoot from everywhere else, so this isn’t a case of a poor shooter learning to shoot. Rui is a good shooter that is working to extend his range. 2- He’s not just a mid range shooter. His %of FGA shrinks as you move further from the rim with most of his shots coming within ten feet. (For perspective, the free throw line is 15 feet from the rim). He’s not a guy making a living taking long twos, which are the least efficient shot in basketball. 3- Rui is a rookie. Otto didn’t even see the floor as a rookie. Efficiency isn’t something rookies in the nba do well, that comes with experience. Rui does have a lot to improve, and I don’t think he’s better than Otto right now in the team game (which is how basketball is played). Otto makes everyone better and had a knack for snatching big rebounds in big moments. He just wasn’t aggressive enough to justify his contract. He’s a very good role player making star money. i think he will be better by year three. Certainly a much better Power Forward. Otto can’t stay healthy banging in the paint.

    Someone seriously needs to convince Jokic to get into nba shape. He’d be much better if he hit the weight room, lost that fat, and actually had some conditioning. Still wouldn’t be athletic, but better.
