I'm assuming he's talking about his "I gave up $100 million to stay unvaccinated" comments.

Either that or him retweeting Alex Jones stuff a few days back. Either way, dude is hilarious. Acts like he's some sort of elite big thinker while routinely jumping on the most stupid concepts and trying to act like they're legit.

I find this shocking, but LeBron's school is one of the worst in the state.

Well yeah, when the students by design are years behind and in general not the greatest upbringing to value education, that sounds about right.

Some of those rankings are balls too.


My school was rated #1 in Ohio in readiness for college, trade or workforce …..no way. None. They definitely aren’t ready for medium to high end college stuff. Our kids that ace or nearly ace the state math tests in elementary school are getting low 20’s on their ACT math scores. Our best of the best mostly become teachers.

What'd he do now?


Said not taking the vaccine "cost (him) $100 million".

Based on the profile of student the school takes, this is not surprising.  The school is specifically for kids who are 2 years behind academically by the time they reach third grade and also have some diagnosed learning disability.  On top of that, they're from horrible home situations.

Getting to watch some of Wembanyama live tonight. God damn he’s a freak. And he’s 7-10 from three.

Utah and Indiana going to be playing a lot of bad basketball to have a shot at him in the draft.

Yeah, he is fucking 7'5 with a better shot than Durant at his age. Better handles than most wings. More fluid on drives and in the post than LeBron (which ok, LBJ isnt fluid, but you get the point). They have him bring the ball up the floor and initiate offense. Goddamn!

Is he wrong?  I got the vaccine, but I'm 0% for any type of mandate to get one, in any industry. Yes, he knew the consequences, and HE is the one who made the choice.  But that choice DID cost him.

$17M does not come close to $100M.

Not getting the vaccine was a bad career move. In addition to being a goofy, unreliable jackass.

I'm not arguing that it cost him financially.  What was so "Kyrie" about it was the $100 million figure.  He either doesn't understand his current compensation sources or he greatly overestimates his status.  Or both.

Pulled trigger on Houston Rockets at Pacers game in March. Eight rows off the court. Houston could be okay but Indiana will suck. Kind of going for the experience of being so close to the court. Haven’t been to an NBA game since 2015 in Charlotte, oddly enough.

Draymond lays out teammate at practice, voluntarily steps away to let heat die down (which is going to amount to about four days) and fined undisclosed amount which probably equates to fining one of us ten dollars. Oh and no suspension, because the Warriors don’t want to play the Lakers, Clippers, etc without him. Gotta love the Warriors. 

And none of this happens if the tape isn’t leaked, which Kerr seemed more pissed about.

It was an "argument" until that tape came out. LOL

Any details ever come out in regards to what the argument was about?

He was giving Draymond shit about a lot of stuff and saying he gets his women because he has all those triple single games lol….a lot of locker room banter that obviously went too far and they will just forever be in a pissing match I’d guess.
