Then the Fertitta said to Harden, “I will rain down coconut shrimp from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will shut up and listen!"

So in honor of Chicago Bull great Jerry Sloan, I was watching BBALLBREAKDOWN and the recaps Nich has been doing of one of the greatest playoff series, the 09 Celtics Bulls series.

And I was reminded of this:



And also how absolutely bananas Ben "Ben Jordan" Gordon was with his bad shot making.

He was being a creep and probably shouldn't post for his own mental well being; Declan made a joke about committing cartoon insurance fraud.

The "In Minecraft" part was not serious, it's a thing where you add "in minecraft" after a threat or a plot so as to have a "plausible deniability" thing. The context of the post was committing arson in real life, though it was just idle and he wasn't anywhere close to serious. He was absolutely talking about real life though, read the string. He was being mostly harmless though.

In context it was in response to someone burning down a church because they were violating social distancing and it was about saving dumb people from themselves. He also said he wouldn't do it in part because it's hard to make sure no one gets hurt

You can't stop what's coming


League is polling GMs on options for the return:

quote:

GMs will be able to vote on a series of scenarios, The Athletic has learned.

Season formats for consideration:

— Advance directly to playoffs: (16 teams, four rounds, best-of-seven series) with postseason teams based on standings as of March 12
— A “Playoffs Plus” option: Expanding the number of teams with the opportunity to play, either through holding a play-in tournament to determine the final seed(s) in playoffs, to be played by “bubble teams” or replacing the first round of the playoffs with a group stage.
— If “Playoffs Plus” — how many teams should return to play: 18, 20, 22 or 24?
— “Playoffs Plus” play-in format options: Play-in tournament featuring bubble teams for 8th seed; play-in tournament for 7th and 8th seed; or group stage that replaces first round of playoffs and all participating in groups (each team plays two games against each group opponent and top two teams from each group advances to traditional second round).

Scrimmage games prior to any restart:
— 2, 3, 4, or 5

Total regular season games:
— 72 or 76

Playoff format:
— Traditional (East/West) or reseed all teams

Latest possible date for finish:
— Labor Day, Sept. 15, Oct. 1, Oct. 15 or Nov. 1

Advance immediately to playoffs seems like the best option if you plan on having any kind of season next year, and even then I'd assume you'd have to have a late start and a shortened season

There is also decent evidence it wasn’t real and the church did it themselves which is where the insurance fraud comes from.

Don’t know why they think he was advocating that

At the very least it immediately cuts the number of players, staff, etc that need to be dealt with in half.

Have the some interconferance games with the playoff teams to get teams back in rhythm then start the playoffs. No need to bring the teams who aren't in contention for the playoffs to the bubble for like 6 games

I agree with you but that reason is $$$. I think they are going to try to sell more games upfront (hence the idea of back-to-back-to-back-to-back games every day like summer league). For what its worth the players seem to be on board since they get half of the whatever deals can get cut for this so
