    Quiet in here. If anyone needs the hometown Giannis report, I'm happy to provide.

    Tonight, career high 44 points. At the end of the game, with the Bucks down 1, he gets fouled and goes to the line. Misses both free throws. Timeout. He's furious on the bench. Head down. Pushing chairs. I mean, he's still only 22 years old. Anyway, Portland gets the ball and McCollum is dribbling. Giannis pokes it away and runs the floor getting the pass and dunks it. Bucks up 1 with 11 secs to go. Nurkic gets the ball deep and goes up for a shot only to be blocked by... Giannis. Bucks win. Amazing last 30 seconds of a game.

    has it ever been adequately explained why Joel Embiid is constantly on a (apparently healthy) minutes restriction? is he still injured, or is there something inherent in his body that makes him too weak to play the minutes that everyone else can?

    i mean, the kid just dropped 13/4 in 10 minutes.

    I think the Embiid is a eggshell. When you were his age were you ever "injured"? He's never going to play a complete season. I hope that expensive contract has a million stipulations around his health.

    T'Wolves gave up 130 to the Pacers who sat Myles Turner. Even more shocking is that the Pacers made 2/3 of their shots and over 45% from 3. I didn't see the game, but I that's a shocking amount of made buckets on each possession.

    LiAngelo (Melos brother in UCLA) got arrested in China for stealing at an LV store and could face 3-10 years in prison.

    Lavar has no comments, which is probably smart on his end because this is where his mouth will definitely could just make things worse.

    Word on the street is they'll get out/serve no time. China just scaring them/putting on house arrest for a few days/week.

    Bucks managed to dump Greg Monroe for Eric Bledsoe. Milwaukee is trending in the right direction.

    Cross posting:

    Fascinating story. I had no clue this happened. I could cross post this in 4 threads, but I will stay with the nba.

    I heard the birdman-pedo story and instinctively believed it.

    Fuck that guy. He won’t let a superstar bring his family onto a plane, but trades for his son and alienates the rest of the team with preferential treatment for his own family?

    I read an article somewhere that said that's basically why CP3 decided to leave the Clippers. He got tired of Doc giving so much preferential treatment to Austin to the detriment of the team that he knew the Clippers were never going to go anywhere.
