    that's interesting, i watched a full suns game the other day and i thought they looked like they had horrible chemistry, every single player (besides the morris twins together). nobody ever helped each other up or dapped up or anything.

    also apparently they lead the league w/ ~40 techs this season; the morrises have like 20 combined. the spurs as a team have 3.

    they've looked terrible since the break. interesting note: hornacek says they literally haven't had the chance to practice a single time since all-star break. sheds some light on why they're struggling, after making some giant moves.

    Len got mad. If you cant handle getting dunked on, you might not be cut out for a NBA big man career

    But hey, the refs finally called an NBA fracas correctly!

    yeah i'm not a fan of the whole iso ball thingy that phoenix is now doing


    hassan kinda got his arms tangled up around len as he came down and len was trying to push him away, but it escalated


    i feel like every dude on the clips from 1 through 9 and the coach all argue with the ref constantly. even reddick got ejected today

    Come on man. Len grabbed a handful of jersey and threw Whiteside to the ground. That's not pushing him away. They had both previously hit each other in the face so it did escalate, but that's mostly a mischaracterization

    i like hassan. i think len was the aggressor, but i'm saying i could see how each step was somewhat reasonable.

    it's odd tho. none of the legacy kids are kids of the best players. a lot of the best nba legacy kids' dads kinda languished in nba and/or then went abroad. and the nba legacy kids of superstars are kinda languishing in the league. makes you wonder if like demarre carroll's son is going to be next superstar

    Not getting Jimmy the Greek here but makes sense. The players fuck a better gene pool (hotter women) so what emerges is solid potential as an athlete. Also, the guidance is valuable. The careers that languish are often lessons learned for the dads and that passes to the kid.

    i mean, it's just a ton of variance. just like height is vulnerable to a ton of variance, so you can't expect a massive outlier of a 7' dad to have a have a 7' kid. by the same token, it would be incredibly surprising for one of the top 5 basketball players to also have a top 5 nba son.

    wiggins is an interesting case because his dad was an nba player and his mom is a former olympian.

    also, these players aren't usually trying to find mothers who are the most athletic. hottest <> most athletic, and even then, it seems like a ton of nba players seem to settle with high school sweethearts (bron, wade pre-gabrielle union, russ, steph, etc). it's pretty different from, say, european soccer, where every wag is a model. it's seems to even differ from foreign nba role-players (marko jaric is married to adriana lima, al horford, jj barea [puerto rico]). this is all conjecture, but i feel like sociology research into the wives of american (or afr american) nba players vs soccer players would be fascinating

    JaVale McGee waived. Is there a contender out there willing to pick him up?

    And MJ is officially a billionaire.

    I think it's crazy when short NBA players have tall NBA player children. Like Mike Dunleavy Jr - his dad was a 6'3" guard and he ended up 6'9"? Tim Hardway Jr is 6'6"? If Hardaway Sr was that tall he would have been unstoppable.

    Watch out for JJ Barea Jr. in 15 years.

    Hardaway jr might be taller but I think it's weird how his dad was so much better. You would think great players have great genes to pass on to their children.

    Okc should get Brian shaw over brooks
