With it being so tall, it probably has to have certain tolerances and unique techniques for construction that have to be done by hand as there probably isn't a factory setup to do that kind of thing. Especially since she can easily die if some part of it fails.

What?

Rose loved the poo poo out of basketball. having to do like 4 injury rehabs in 5 years would probably break most anyone. That dude by all reports was a basketball robot, and is why he and Thibs got along so well from the start. They both only care about Basketball...

Now take that away from him with tons of injuries. Nowadays I dunno how much he loves the game, but yeah..

And yes, If wasn't constantly working on Rehabbing he probably would have had time to add other stuff to his game.
That MVP and the year after he was shooting fairly respectable from 3, and had been getting better.

Like dude had loving 4 loving knee injuries in 5 years. It's kinda insane to say he wouldn't have gotten better had he stayed healthy.

Also John Wall kinda still exists in this NBA.

It's not a knock on him, I just think he enjoyed hanging with his friends and family much more. I know we got all the "Rose plays for the love of the game" stuff when the media hated Lebron for a season but it never made sense. The same people were feeding us stories about how Derrick was dunking over people in practice all the time and when he came back he'd be the same. He had a great PR team early on.

The guy was routinely out of shape coming into the season even when he wasn't rehabbing (2015-16 season for instance). Didn't improve his shot much, his handles got considerably worse, and he always had one of the lowest basketball IQs around. The rift between him and Butler was over Jimmy thinking the guy had a lovely work ethic.

Rose wasn't the one releasing the news about himself dunking over everyone in practice.

That was the Bulls FO leaking that poo poo to the Media. Trying to force him to play.

And Rose was 3 knee surgery's in by the time that rift started

I know the ACL was bad and maybe you can't come back from that. But the other surgeries were for a meniscus. Westbrook had the same thing (along with 3 surgeries).

Regardless, I'm talking about stuff he can control. No reason he should have been so out of shape those last two years in Chicago. No reason for his ballhandling to be so abysmal. And no reason for him to not know even the basics of NBA defenses at that stage of his career.

Butler is a bit over-the-top with his work ethic stuff but he clearly thought Rose wasn't working hard enough.

He put up good numbers but the Suns lost almost every single game that he played. 3-17 vs 10-7 when he didn't. He was horrible on defense. I haven't watched him enough to know if that's the norm or if he just didn't care here.

Either way the Celtics obviously have a better roster and coaching so I'm sure it'll work out.

He definitely is a bad defender. I don't think the Suns losing is any single player's fault on that team.

Yep. Brad's made worse defenders work though so I'm pretty sure it will be fine and any defensive liability will hopefully be offset by having a human being capable of putting ball in hoop once Kyrie sits

Lebron James is a man who can pass a basketball at other players and sometimes throw a basketball at a hoop. The basketball then frequently goes in the hoop.

paragraph before:
“The Red Panda is legendary and absolutely loved and adored by everyone, especially our fans and season tickets holders. She’s been a staple at Warriors games for many years and we need for that to continue in the future,” Warriors president Rick Welts said in a statement to Bay Area News Group. “What better way to put her in position to succeed than with a new, custom made unicycle? We look forward to her next appearance at Oracle Arena and are glad that we could do our small part to help this great tradition continue.”

I don't think he'd win a bunch more MVPs but if he'd stayed healthy I think he would've kept improving.
