    Pats Release Cam Newton

    Yep. I am a super casual fan at this point (tuned in to more TB games than Pats games last season) but I will definitely tune in for a few early season games after this move.

    2021-22 NBA Off-season Thread

    Yep. Strauss's book "The Victory Machine" is a good, quick read that sheds a lot of light on that team's dynamic. Revisionist history is fun but at this point I think even casual NBA observers know how fragile/self-obsessed KD is when it comes to anything involving his ego or image.

    Poll: Cam, Mac, Brian or?

    Good poll. I voted Mac because, as others have said, Cam appears to be done. And I think it is Pats' quarterback but this is why my employer has style editors.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    I mean, things may have changed since I moved, but Boston/New England has long been known as an area where showing enjoyment is not exactly the norm.

    Celtics hire Ime Udoka as HC

    Same. Love the Pop connection and that the Jays allegedly love him. Beyond that, in Brad I trust.

    Kemba Walker + 2021 First Round Pick to OKC for Al Horford, Moses Brown

    Giannis would be the best player in the league by a wide margin if he had KG's 5 - 20 foot game. https://www.nba.com/stats/player/203507/shooting/?Season=2020-21&SeasonType=Regular%20Season https://www.nba.com/stats/player/708/shooting/?Season=2003-04&SeasonType=Regular%20Season

    Kemba Walker + 2021 First Round Pick to OKC for Al Horford, Moses Brown

    Fo', fo', fo'! I also like this deal just to get out of Kemba's contract...and watching him get killed on defense in playoff/meaningful games.

    2021 NBA Playoffs Gamethread

    Absolutely right. The wind-up alone made it pretty damn obvious that it was a non-basketball play/tantrum. Not sure if it was against the Celtics (I think it was?), but Jokic positively quit in a game earlier this season. Pouting, awful body language, etc. Not a great look.

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Oh, sorry. I was referring to the Kemba for Russ extreme rumor.

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    But there’s upside there? Maybe?

    Celtics Plan, Summer 2021

    Hah! My one contribution to this thread and I was way too slow. And I’d trade two years of Kemba for two years of Russ in a heartbeat. Would probably be the best they could do in a Kemba move (wild ass guess, obviously). Please no Porzingis.

    Former OU volleyball player sues over exclusion from team

    Yeah. A friend is a prof there and loves it. But def an outlier town in that state. I adopted a hound from a shelter in Rogers, AR last May. It was as though COVID wasn’t a thing. Minimal mask-wearing and all that. It’s like West Va to me - beautiful country with a lot of humans who wish...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Nice. A friend who listens to them religiously was spouting that yesterday. Good to see Felgie and Mazz are getting a few days out of it.

    Brad Stevens: President of Basketball Ops

    A friend tells me it is also what Felger is yammering about on today's show so on that basis I assume it is just a fun take to bat around? But I also don't think (or maybe it's "I hope") the ownership group would not waste years of prime Tatum and Brown because they wanted to save the $25ish...
