    hahaha agreed... maybe they photoshopped her crooked knuckles, or maybe the last one was a bad angle.

    Just read the 76’ers sent McAdoo to their G league team. How the fuq does he gets minutes on a championship team but no love in The Process?

    Well, he signed a two-way contract with the 76ers, so he’s only allotted a specific amount of minutes in the NBA vs the G-League over the course of the season.

    Plus, he’s in the same position as he was with the Warriors... low on the depth chart.

    Not like the Sixers have a ton of talent inside... Embiid, Amir and he should be next, considering Okafor is basically out of the team already. No reason he should get "demoted" to the g-league with that kind of talent. They're playing Saric inside as well and all, but come on...

    What do Doc Rivers, Dwayne Wade, Jimmy Butler, Jae Crowder, and Wes Mattews all have in common?

    I grew up in St. Louis (5-6 hour drive south) and visited a number of schools in neighboring states... I just liked the city.
    Oh and grew up Catholic... haven't been that since... well since about my freshman year at Marquette... LOL

    Obviously, there are alternatives to getting to the NBA such as going overseas. And I share this with you because it's a constant discussion and the fact that I am a LaVar Ball enthusiast, especially with news of the league is looking to create for ranked players coming out of high school.

    But I'm curious on your guys' thoughts about high schoolers needing to go to college for at least a year versus just allowing them to make the jump right after high school?

    I think college is good for guys to experience, but if they are good enough and are only going because its mandated , then they should be able to play pro. If Ball has the financial backing to structure a league and really get guys developed in order to get to the league, then that's a good thing. I just don't see a lot of substance when he boasts. He mentioned players making up to 10K a month, and i know that isn't coming from him. So to me it all depends on the sources of that money. Because they still need to figure out the logistics as far as venues, travel, staffing and so on.

    They also need to pay coaches and medical personnel. I'll buy this idea if the plan is actually in place, and not just boasting because he pulled his son out of UCLA.

    My personal feeling is I wish the NBA was "Two Years Removed from your HS Graduating Year" before you could play. The NBA is the premier league in the world... the highest level you can achieve. I dont like seeing the game watered down with guys that are not ready yet.

    As Xbay said, there are plenty of alternatives to be "pro" if you are not wanting to go to college...just not the NBA

    I think there are options, and maybe the 2 years removed is a good idea. I know the 1 year is awful for college basketball. I've never been a huge NCAA guy, but the one and done is really pointless.

    I agree with the two years removed idea...better for both NCAA and the NBA.

    Two years sound good to me. Those guys that do not want to go through college and want to become pros can find a place in Europe, China or other leagues. At the same time, that will help them a great deal for the time when they finally arrive at the NBA.

    Man, Lavar Ball is going to ruin his son's career.
    He really needs to let him run his own life at this point, or at least take fricken back seat dude.
    helicopter parents.. smh.

    Love what Kerr said... something to the effect that he's the Kardashian of the NBA

    I could not agree more. His God damn mouth needs to shut the f**k up. He is so busy trying to sell his Baller brand, that he is not thinking about what is best for his son.

    Ruining Lonzo pro rookie season, pulled middle son out of college, and pulled youngest out of High School. Yeah, Dad of the fucking year. Get so pissed at those people that defend him by saying nothing wrong with what he is doing... he just advocates for his sons and fights for them. Bullshit. He is living vicariously through them and trying to force them to fulfill his failed career.

    That being said, Lonzo is an adult, he needs to tell his Dad to shut the fuck up.
