There's probably better places to speculate on selling Dunk GIFs to human traffickers looking to launder money

ASG: Everything happening on March 7th this year, 1 night only.

Heat game might be good, though low scoring. Unless the Heat have really turned a corner in which case it'll be a blowout.

Basically, and I can't figure out another reason why a short gif of a DeAndre Liggins jumper would have roughly the same value as a used Honda Civic.

I had seats that put me about 4 feet away from Kevin Durant in ~2009 or 2010, when he was even lankier than he is today. A human being with those proportions who just glided around the court or in the air was just ridiculous. NBA Basketball is one of those sports that is absolutely worth seeing real close up if you ever can.

My dad and I would always go to a few Celtics games a year when I was a kid. Always cheap seats but we would go early and hang out near courtside during warmups and shootarounds. Then when people started getting seated we would roll the dice and pick two adjoining seats and hope that no one ever showed up to claim them.

One time it worked and I was 2 rows back from mid court against the LeBron Cavs in the playoffs. He inbounded a ball like 3 feet from me and it was crazy.

Also, Leon Powe saw me wearing a Leon Powe jersey and came up from the bench to sign it. I think I'm the only person he's ever seen wear his jersey.

They are considerably underperforming their net rating. Their expected win/loss is currently at 17-17, which would make them the 5th seed in the east. They also have been ravished by injury, but they do have 3 players who are top 35 in winshares. This team should be better then it is, and Lloyd Pierce is probably not the answer at coach, so I dont really see a big deal with getting rid of him

Atlanta's had a few years being kinda junky and maybe being worse than their roster should be. Like the Wolves, I am not 100% sure what a midseason firing does but I guess at least Atlanta has a shot of getting back into the mix.

They have the ninth-best offense, though. And the sixth-worst defense.

They made a bunch of big moves dating back to last trade deadline with Capella. They've had some of those big pieces get hurt, but clearly someone was expecting this to pay off and the coach is always the easy first target

i know

also re: going all in I don't think it was really the front office thinking that they were ready to be serious contenders or something, ownership just demanded they make a playoff push so they spent to make that happen. it's not like they're way out of it either given the current state of the east

Is this real life, or is this fantasy?

Hawks fire Pierce. They should have fired the GM. I have no idea what they were doing last off season. All that money for second level players and then they add Rondo. I have to add they gave Rondo two guaranteed years, and left themselves with no way to sign Collins. All this when they really needed to play Cam and Hunter. I know everyone is injured, but where were the minutes for all these guys going to come from? So everyone is hurt, fire the coach. Meanwhile, they had set themselves up perfectly with cap space and completely screwed it up.
Why did they sign Bogdan and not trade one of Reddish or Hunter? Why sign Danilo and not trade Collins? Why sign any of them and maybe just get some lowkey defensive guys on cheap contracts.

because they had an insane amount of cap space and the owner demanded they use it to try to make a playoff run this year

e: also they haven't had their full team basically all year, Gallo got hurt right away and missed 12 games and Bogdanovic has only played 9 games. They've played their intended starting lineup for like 3 minutes all year

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

E:Hawks are definitely a situation where the coach is eating a firing for bad GMing. I guess to be fair I could see the optimistic side of the moves but that was a whole lot of risk.

If the Lakers keep not having draft picks a lot of the fanbase is going to stop caring I imagine.
