  1. I'm not trying to blow this up, I was just referring to the inevitable backlash that was coming from the social media world that's all. Anyway, that's all I'll say, I wasn't angry about it, or disgusted etc. I have a lot of thoughts on Drew Brees though...
  2. Nobody would argue that. What does that have to do with what I said? If your point was leave the Redskins alone, just say that.
  3. I know there is The Stadium but I have to say the Redskins doing #blackouttuesday had to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Sad to hear about Unseld. King of the outlet pass. Someone many say "you had to be there" to understand because the stats won't show it.

    "The Last Dance" - '97/'98 Bulls

    A couple things I wish they'd included: - Jordan's interview in 1998 with Stuart Scott when he said the GOAT debate is pointless because he never played Dr. J, Baylor etc. in their primes and that he is appreciative of being called that but he doesn't agree. - The game winners he missed. He did that great commercial in the 2000s about missing over 20 potential game winners and that is why he succeeds because he isn't afraid to fail. I think a lot of the anti-Jordan sentiment is because of the Skip Bayless cohort that implies he never lost or missed clutch shots or that there is no GOAT argument outside of him. But Jordan's own comments are that he did fail, and he did overcome missed chances and the work he put in is what got him to where he is now. He, like LeBron, Magic, Bird, Shaq, Kareeem etc. is flawed. LeBron would love to have the 2011 Finals back. Jordan would probably like to have a lot of ECF games vs. Detroit where he forced it himself back. Magic would like to have 1984 back and Bird would like to have 1985 back etc. The arguments on social media aren't even fun to have because they are all axioms with no nuance or context and to prop one up, the other has to be completely damned.

    ***2019-2020 NBA Season Thread***

    Going into the 2002 All Star break before Etan Thomas killed his knee, Jordan was one of two players averaging at least 25/5/5 a night along with Kobe Bryant. Tracy McGrady joined that club by season's end. The best part of the documentary was (besides Krause being OWNED), Pippen: I'm not gonna **** my summer up."

    Well social media around the documentary has been about as expected. A bunch of asinine comments like Jordan couldn't play with today's players, or LeBron was too "weak" to play in the 1990s with the physicality, which is such an overstated point. Handchecking is the most overrated thing in this debate, LeBron is not getting slowed by a hand on his hip.

    This is an incredible breakdown on the difference in eras. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/29035071/why-michael-jordan-scoring-prowess-touched
  9. Testing everyone would've worked before rampant community spread. Ship has indeed sailed. No point in wasting a test if your recovery is staying at home drinking lots of fluids and getting rest. We need to reserve tests for people who are getting severely ill, who need to be in a hospital.
  10. I live in New York. The current mandates have definitely quieted the streets significantly. But it's not enough, the city needs a quarantine period. It is what it is.
  11. The next pandemic, I hope travel to and from the epicenter is actually suspended appropriately. And we shouldn't have waited until cases exploded to put these measures in place. The moment your jurisdiction sees a case, boom, you lock it down to make sure we don't get to where Italy is now. We've been behind the 8-ball for months on this and to catch up, it will take forcible action since you know, people suck. I've heard people say "Americans care about the greater good." Uh no, people love this country because they don't have to sacrifice for the greater good fundamentally. It's why the measures taken overseas would cause way more whining here about liberties being taken away.
  12. It only takes one cough or sneeze to get it. It's just that's more likely if you're around someone a long time. People need to COVER THEIR DAMN FACE. And sneeze into the crux of their arm.

    September 2001 vs March 2020

    True, but we've also cured HIV in multiple people now with other therapies that weren't available in past years. And compared to the 1980s, we have drugs people can take allowing them to live a full life with HIV, so still, we're miles ahead.

    There will definitely be effective vaccines at some point. We have SO many more tools than we did for the similar SARS virus. It took 20 months to ship a vaccine for trials for SARS, it took 42 days for this one. It is possible that this could end up being seasonal like the flu, and there's definitely a ton to be learned, but medicine has come so far since past pandemics. It is encouraging to see countries like China and South Korea effectively contain the outbreak with major interventions. We'll have to see how things go when they open the nations back up for business but we have proven at the very least we CAN control this initial outbreak with proper procedures. Hopefully it's not something you can get over and over and over again.
