    David Ortiz in Hospital with Gunshot Wound?

    We don’t have to rationalize this. It happens all the time and seems to be human nature. Significant other gets caught cheating - person seeks revenge against 3rd party. Maybe it’s evolution’s way of telling everyone else not to mess with your “belongings”.

    David Ortiz in Hospital with Gunshot Wound?

    It's not an assumption by people on the Internet.. It's the story that's been told from the very beginning, presumably by people closer to the situation than we are. Maybe his wife was okay with it or was just willfully ignorant. Who knows. The images of the Lexus receipt and check have also...

    David Ortiz in Hospital with Gunshot Wound?

    I have seen the video. It's been out there since the morning after he was shot. The girl in the video definitely looks like the alleged mistress in question.

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    What I don't get is that the type of tanking that they are trying to discourage is the kind that everyone can sympathize with. You're a shitty team going nowhere. Who am I to judge you for trying to pull yourself out of hell somehow? I really don't care. Now they're going to be giving top draft...

    That assumes he cares about the Lakers’ post-Lebron future. He played it pretty well if he only cares about winning now and his legacy. Go ask the Cavs. Perhaps the Lakers were okay with waiting one more year because it allowed them to salvage the future and Lebron had to play it this way.

    I think the implication is they agreed to this stipulation as part of the deal. who knows whether that’s accurate or not.

    According to the trade correction which came out later last night, the 2025 pick swap doesn’t exist. Instead, they have the right to defer the unprotected ‘24 pick to ‘25. https://mobile.twitter.com/taniaganguli/status/1140123632103903233?s=19

    So the 2021 pick is better in that it's protected against 9+, not top 8 protected. But the 2025 swap doesn't really exist. That could work out bettor or worse for NO depending on how things play out.

    No idea. I had Air Supply's "Making Love Out of Nothing At All" for +2000.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    I'm only gong on the recent reports from sports journalists plus Kyrie's recent agent switch. Of course those reports can be wrong, but that's the best we have to go on. https://twitter.com/TheSteinLine/status/1140028046415675392...

    This also severely handicaps the Lakers' ability to use draft picks as trade bait to add depth the next few years...until 2026. Who's going to trade for unprotected swaps?

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    Doesn't matter what Big John or Danny want at this point. He's gone. Trust the Kyrie rumors, especially now that we know the Celtics never made a serious offer on AD.

    Two days ago, Kemba said he would take less than the max to stay, so I guess we'll find out what's more important to him - CHA or super team with a path to a championship.

    Yeah, I'm just glad it's over. Let's see what Trader Danny can do with this hand. I'm low on Lonzo, but him running the break with Zion should be a lot of fun.

    Al Horford: does he stay or does he go?

    Me too. But he's still helping out there. And if he doesn't re-sign with us, aren't we just losing him for nothing? Unless we're tanking, he makes sense from the perspective of "it's not my money". At this point, a trade would be perfectly fine with me.

    Al Horford: does he stay or does he go?

    I think the point is that if Hayward goes back to being All NBA, you'll wish you had kept Horford around.

    I have mixed feelings. I'm bummed that we didn't get to pair up superstars while our biggest rival did. On the other hand, I'm with you - that would have been a potentially franchise-crippling risk for us to take.

    Honeymoon period. With a weakened West, they'll win a lot and everyone will be happy until after the contract is signed. You're rooting for injury at this point.

    I wonder how much of that haul Griffin has to thank the KD and Klay injuries for. We know the Lakers were desperate to not let another year of Lebron go to waste, but they just saw a huge window open up in one week's time.
