Matt Barnes is about as gangster as an NBA player gets.  Not fake BS.  The real deal.

Crossing him is bad mojo.  

Him and Chuck Oakley.
I believe Stephen Jackson when he says this

Man!

Steve destroys that, "Black don't crack" thing.  Looks like he is about 55.

I didn't even realize Charlotte got a new head coach and Tony Parker.

Big news everyone! Kyrie Irving apologizes for saying that the Earth is flat. He says he used to be into conspiracy theories. How about that Duke education!

Poll of NBA general managers- who would you start a franchise with?

30% Giannis
23% Anthony Davis
20% Durant
17% Lebron
7% Curry
3% Embiid


Clearly the poll was about the current version of each player, but the discussion was ruined by Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman wanting to talk about not bringing age into the equation.
Lebron rightfully loses votes because he's older and can't play a lot of defense anymore.

That list seems perfect.  Giannis is more durable than AD.

I was going to disagree with you because of his short career so far but then I saw Embiid with votes.

It also shows why some GMs can royally screw up in the draft. You know I love Curry. But the 7% for him are insane, as are the Embiid votes. Probably a bit off the wall to say you'd start a franchise with a 34 year old Lebron as well. With that you have to get everything else just right in the first two or three years or you probably have no chance to win a title with your franchise player.

You guys have to watch the video of the Golden State Warriors new championship rings. The first-ever reversible championship rings. It is crazy.

So far it looks the same as the Cavs. Lebron and nobody else.
