NBA Offseason 2019

    I dont think it makes either team much better, but what was the ceiling for the Rockets? 4th seed probably? They weren't going anywhere either way. Might as well trade the old, injury prone guard who may or may not be feuding with Harden for Westbrook. Also, sign me up for some Harden - Westbrook State Farm commercials.

    That’s awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    It's really wonderful. It cracks me up when people who don't even live here start yelling, "but, but, but taxes pay for most of LeBron's school!" Well no shit, geniuses. You've figured out how public schools work. Incredible.

    You have to be a truly awful human to think the I Promise school is in any way a bad thing. Kind of amazing that there are LeBron haters of that magnitude.

    These people are also forgetting that Lebron committed to sending over 1K students to college on a full ride.  About $41M.  I will never hate on someone for actually making a change with his/her actions especially when it is their own money.

    Yup. I've lived near Akron since 2009 and IN Akron since 2013. What he does for this city and the people who live here is incredible.

    You mean REALLY STUPID KENT STATE GUN GIRL? Because I recall her doing that during one of her "Gotta get my face out there and maybe get famous!" moments.

    Yes, she is one of them. But I've also seen similar comments all over social media from randoms and even some people I know. A kid I went to high school with said he doesn't like the school because it's going to make his taxes go up. He lives in Fremont or Lorain or some shit. 😑 He's a LeBron hater because of his politics. It's not even Cavs or basketball related for him.

    That girl really peaked at her gun photo and it's been downhill since then.  She was given terrible advice.

    Heard Vince Carter signed a 1 year contract and, at age 42, if he plays in a game after January 1st that he will be the only player to play in 4 decades.

    And he is now assured of spending (up to now) half his entire life as an NBA player.

    Brian Windhorst was on the Bill Simmons podcast this week. Windhorst will be following team USA basketball to China in a few weeks and is nervous about the food there because "he's a picky eater." Uh huh, right Brian.

    Sounds like Boogie Cousins may have blown out his knee? What is that, three serious injuries in two years if so?
