NBA 2022-23 Season Catch-All

What makes me sad there is that I can see a genuine interest in learning and an understandable disappointment in which parts of history we are and aren't told, but a lack of recognization that even if the "mainstream" is lying, that doesn't mean the alternative sources are therefore truthful. (Especially ones using comically made-up Hitler quotes.)

That and the omnipresent "smartest guy in the room" stuff.

Moreover, as some people have mentioned on Twitter, I'd bet that there's been little to no pushback from NBA players against Kyrie on this (as opposed to Robert Sarver) because a pretty significant number of players, if not the majority, either sympathize or think he's right.

The silence. It's deafening.

Nike's done with Irving.

And as a result...

He's a martyr now. Not that I disagree with what Nike or the Nets or the NBA has done, this is just the reality we inhabit.

Oh, it really is real.

But are the Charlotte ones real?

Shouldn't go without mentioning that the Kings dropped 153 American basketball points on the Nets this week.

Why is Milwaukee wearing blue uniforms? Is that a thing now?

I think those are their “City” jerseys.

Can I simultaneously think "modern basketball has devalued the triple-double slightly" and also think "Luka is an insane, once-in-a-generation player"?

You could just say Westbrook devalued the triple double.

If you are interested in League Pass, right now is the best deal I have ever seen where you can get the whole season for about $50.

This link has the season at $99 for a black friday thing until Tuesday, and then at checkout add promo code NBA50 and it takes 50% off, making it $50 plus taxes. I just signed up and worked fine.
