    Global Basketball Odds and Ends

    Apropos of nothing but a crazy coincidence, I clicked on this thread and saw this Chuck Conners comment. Last night, I had a dream where I was at a community meeting and an old guy showed up and was sitting there listening. I get up and say "That's Chuck Conners. He was involved in two things...

    NBA suspends season

    Virtual HORSE, with each player in a gym, with a big screen so they can talk trash. Hopefully the NBA won't screw it up, like the 2010 Horse competition, when they were "running out of time" and had to turn it into a three point competition between Rondo and KD. BTW, what's fun about...

    Ballmer buys The Forum from James Dolan in order to build his new arena

    So Dolan/MSG is into the Forum for around $75M, $23.5 million to buy in 2012, and $50 million to renovate. Nice profit of $325 million in eight years. Too bad Dolan's business acumen doesn't translate to putting together a good basketball team.

    Marcus Smart has COVID-19

    I've been speculating this transmission pattern. Someone who attended the Biogen conference in Boston (or was infected by an attendee) passed the virus to Gobert, when the Jazz were in Boston, who passed it to other NBA players.

    NBA suspends season

    Play the exhibition games outside on a playground, with no refs and no coaches - just the best 16 players who want to run, eight to a side, the camera and sound people, and a hypeman announcer. or get the best 20 players together, five to a side, on the playground, games to 21, winning team...

    2020 Pats: QB Edition

    Winston threw for the most yards in the league, and might not have a landing spot due to his propensity for throwing TD passes to the other team's defense. As mentioned above, he's only 26 and has all the physical tools to be a true franchise QB. He had a lot of weapons last season, and if the...

    2020 Bucs: TB12 in TB20 - How Far Do They Go?

    Those kind of heavy hitter patrons is what it takes to get a January table at Berns Steak House if you don't have a reservation from earlier in the season. Amazing old school steakhouse, with a million bottles of wine, and an upstairs dessert room with a dessert menu with more items than...

    Gone Brady Gone

    Marino was pulled from his last game, a first round playoff game with with the Jags, down 38-0 in the third. That game ended 62-7. No pick 6s, but a strip sack returned for a TD on his third possession after getting picked on his first. Historically bad final game.

    Gone Brady Gone

    :Football journey" is at least a little ambiguous. With the crazy money Tony Romo just got, maybe there's a broadcasting job out there for Brady right now. However, he's always said he wanted to play until age 45, and Brady will be coveted as a broadcaster whenever he stops playing.

    Gone Brady Gone

    I can't imagine ever saying anything bad about Tom Brady. I love Tom Brady, and thank him for the joy he has brought to my life. If he plays elsewhere, I hope he has success. I won't be envious at all. When I think of Bobby Orr, I don't think about some guy slinking around the ice with a...

    NBA suspends season

    A medical conference in Boston in late February is said to be the hot spot for Massachusetts infections. Gobert could have picked it up at the practice facility, or somewhere else in Boston. The state of Utah is just experiencing its first cases the last few days ...

    So no NBA and no live poker tournaments for me until further notice. I need to find some new, social distancing friendly hobbies.

    NBA suspends season

    I just saw video of the postponement of the OKC-Jazz game, with coaches from both teams huddling with refs and a team doctor. Probably not a good idea to have your face two feet away from Utah coaches, with the positive COVID-19 test of Gobert.

    NBA suspends season

    Do the Celtics refund the games I will miss from my season ticket package? How will this affect over/under betting for wins for the season. The unders will be looking strong if they don't take the action off the board and refund bets. When LeBron said last week that he wasn't playing if...

    3/8 Thunder @ Celtics

    Tatum 19 points on 22 points, 2 TOs, a minus 16, and a garbage buzzer beater attempt. Kemba 14 points on 14 shots, and get stripped of the ball for the game winning layup. OKC gets 15 more FTs in Boston, and their two little guards pour in 55 points Boston has lost four straight at home...
