Hah that "okay now get it down" at the end, I know that dang tone

any time I pick up my lil cousins and throw em around for a while they think they get a handle on the rules so they can tell me what to do, okay you picked her up now you have to pick me up, always stated like the master of the universe

today I learned Paul George is actually a Paul George Jr and his Mom's name is Paulette. He has two sisters and they aren't named Paula.

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.

haha dude that quote is from like 3 miles deep into the "we don't expect anyone to read this article past the headline but it should be a minimum length to look like a real article la la la la la" section of the page, how'd you even make it that far?

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.”

The best I've ever seen LeBron play was in the several finals that he lost. There were parts of those Spurs games and the GSW matchups, especially last year, especially towards the end of the games when they're far behind and he starts ignoring his team on offense and pushes right to the basket. Nobody can do a thing about him but he can't play all five spots on defense.

The 2014 Spurs especially you could watch them treat LeBron on defense as a passing dead zone. Try to find him on the court in these possessions:

Ginobili and Duncan are the only two people who'll even touch the ball near him, because he's terrifying and he will take the ball away.

I figure there's probably a back n forth with improved conditioning and focus on biomechanics meaning less injuries for players, but that also means more success for players who previously would've had career-ending injuries early on so the numbers always look about the same. We get to see the frailer bodies stay in the league hampered by injury instead of being wheelchair-bound by age 30 like most people over 7 feet

like how humanity is collectively getting worse at seeing, genetics wise, as we've developed a ton of seeing-aids that mean going legally blind no longer messes your life up so bad you'll never have a chance to succeed and gently caress.

maybe if he'd been born 10-30 years later we might be talking about Morteza Mehrzadselakjani as a revolutionary center instead of a champion sitting volleyball player

Every NBA player pays higher % taxes most likely

well that's a given--you can tell who's powerful and connected by looking at their tax rate, and athletes get hosed compared to most other highly wealthy sorts. The jock tax is sorta nuts.

but I was thinking more like, in total, not as a percent. I wouldn't be surprised if LeBron pays more back to the states than some of the people who own teams
