    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    They charged him with assault because some skittish adults were frightened by an 11 year old boy playing dress up at a public park? That’s embarrassing for everyone involved, or at least it should be. Some people have no shame. On the bright side, the kid wasn’t murdered by cops that drove their car at him and shot him before he even had a chance to obey their commands.

    Looks like the leader of an 80s movie street gang. Just needs a boombox and a couple of henchmen in matching vests and headbands.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Wizards played pretty well tonight, they just missed a lot of big shots late that Miami didn’t. Good game, and a fun one to watch. Wagner was right about those charges not being called too. You can’t jump pass and land on guys in the lane in the nba. That’s a charge every time in the nba rule book. Point guards get called for that all the time, but tonight Jimmy Butler kept doing it and the refs simply decided to allow it. It’s not like they didn’t see it.

    Last season espn was celebrating the Knicks for clearing cap space and discussing how many stars they’d sign in the offseason. Not if anyone of note would sign there, but what combination of stars they should get. Hehe

    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.

    Chiozza is butt. Refs are letting them assault Beal.

    We’re in midseason form on injuries and it’s not even Christmas.
  12. 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.
  13. 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)
  14. 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.

    For the same exact money, would you rather have Otto or Bertans?

    He’s only give about 14 minutes before he fouled out. >13 offensive rebound by the magic tonight? Sounds about right.
