There's also that part where's Shaq's idea of useful advice is, "You just have to go dominate." Really, Shaq? That's all you have to do? Well, gee, why didn't anyone else think of that?

when Russ uses his blatant stat hunting skills for good
It's easy to forget this now when Mr. Triple Double has become cemented in fans heads as a stat padding me-first player but way back before that MVP season that really started it all, his talent and relentless aggressiveness were the driving forces in OKC become a contender. KD is a great scorer but he's never been able to lead a team on his own. I think Russ is hated now for a lot of the same reasons Kobe was hated. He'd rather do it himself than wait to see what his teammates can do. Both of them definitely took that tendency into the negative when smarter plays were available to them but it's hard to find a genuine superstar who doesn't toe that line and end up on the wrong side of it from time to time.

Good news...

"The Miami Heat vehemently condemns the use of any form of hate speech,'' the team statement said. "The words used by Meyers Leonard were wrong and we will not tolerate hateful language from anyone associated with our franchise. To hear it from a Miami Heat player is especially disappointing and hurtful to all those who work here, as well as the larger South Florida, Miami Heat and NBA communities.''

He also lost his gaming sponsorships already with ASTRO Gaming, Origin PC and Scuf Gaming all cutting ties.

You can read his "apology" in the link below.

Just watching this Mavs game right now and noticing the poor body language between Doncic and Porzingis, one has to think this tandem isn’t going to last much longer right?

The Pels getting their pants blown off by the freaking TWolves. Are we really sure they’re going a great job of rebuilding?
Really have to wonder for all the blame Gentry shouldered how they can be even worse with a new coach. Also I have zero interest in evaluating Gentry for half a season so good job tonight Kings.

Their big concern was Gentry getting nothing out of the team defensively but supposed defensive coach Stan van Gundy is also struggling to get these guys to play competent defense so maybe it wasn't just the coaching in this case.

Tony Snell hits a buzzer beating three to win the game for the Hawks over the Raptors.

The Hawks only have two more wins than the Kings and did the basketball equivalent of taking out a second mortgage on their house to bet on a dark horse at the Kentucky Derby. At least they still have most of their draft capital going forward but they've essentially turned into the Kings the year Vlade gave away a bunch of assets to use cap space on a bunch of guys we didn't need.

A cautionary tale...

first trade of the season and it's Diallo going to Detroit. Not quite sure what type of roster Detroit is looking to put together but it's obvious it's all youth movement so one does have to appreciate them tanking properly especially after letting Zombie Blake go
