“You can go on a honeymoon with your significant other and you can have 13 incredible days. Perfect days. And if lunch on the 13th day isn’t as good as you want it to be, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t an incredible trip.’” – Rob Pelinka on Dlo https://www.rawchili.com/3088912/
[Woj] Free agent G Josh Primo is planning to sign a two-way contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. Since his release from the Spurs in October, Primo has been engaged in ongoing therapy – which will continue in LA. https://www.rawchili.com/3088908/
A Jrue Holiday trade could change the NBA title picture. Which contenders need him most? https://theathletic.com/4911773/2023/09/29/jrue-holiday-trade-rumors-clippers-sixers-celtics/ The two-time All-Star will be in high demand, and the rebuilding Blazers have little use for him. But which trade makes the most sense? #Basketball
[Neubeck] Spoke to a league source who told @PHLY_Sports there’s not much traction on a potential PHL/POR/LAC three-way trade involving Harden and Holiday. Fluid situation obviously, but if that holds, likelihood of a Holiday deal for the Sixers is going to be fairly low https://www.rawchili.com/3088769/
I didn’t think of getting Jrue Holiday until Bill Simmons mentioned it. Just giving up Poku and 1-2 first rounders is well worth it. Jrue expires in 2 years and this doesn’t affect our future cap space and makes us better. Would be solid https://www.rawchili.com/3088751/
NBA offseason rankings, revisited: Damian Lillard trade catapults Bucks into Top 5 https://theathletic.com/4913043/2023/09/29/nba-offseason-rankings-summer-trades-deals/ Initially, the Trail Blazers received an incomplete for their offseason. The Damian Lillard trade changed things for everyone involved. #Basketball
Quentin Grimes was a better on-ball defender than Jrue Holiday last season and the numbers suggest it wasn’t really close https://www.rawchili.com/3088589/
[Weiss] The price for Jrue Holiday likely starts at two first-round picks, but several teams in the mix have the means and motivation to go beyond that. https://www.rawchili.com/3088567/
[Jones] Take this with a grain of salt, but Keyonte George played very well in open runs this month in OTA’s…..Now, this is just open runs, so in the grand scheme that means nothing. But it’s clear George has a ton of talent https://www.rawchili.com/3088565/

I think the most interesting thing in this article is that there was no physical therapist on staff prior to this year. I understand they’ve had a training staff, but it seems like having a PT is a no-brainer considering the profession. https://www.rawchili.com/3088551/

Refs are a global problem
"The referees told to one of the guys: 'We're not gonna call a foul on [Dillon Brooks] because he's coming at us.' ... I know I complain a lot, but I don't think it's fair."

there is one very necessary requirement for all Americans who want to ride that #ponzillionaire wave. everybody has to do the same song and dance, the same kissing of rings.
because ponzillionaires do not have what their king-makers do: actual fungible assets.
think of it this way:
- an oil well is a fungible asset
- fame is a non-fungible asset
LeBron James is our latest non-fungible ponzillionaire

Another very interesting game was one of the nations hosting the tournament, the #Philippines and their #Gilas squad, bouncing the Chinese team in a striking fashion!!
In front of an abuzz home crowd, they beat them handily im the second half, with an amazing performance not only by #NBA star #JordanClarkson. He might not be one of my favourite players, but you cannot deny that this dude sometimes just catches on fire 🏀🔥
Also, it felt like this game was personal for a lot of their players. Perhaps because of the ongoing political dispute around the waters and islands located between these nations.
On another note...when watching the game, I was definitely asking myself "Why the hell is #SlowMo (#KyleAnderson) of the #Timberwolves playing for the Chinese basketball team?!"
I've read now that he was naturalized to play for them 🙃
not only do we have team mascots playing sports and many sport designs, we also have designs for the stadium, arena, rink, field, court, field house and pool too!

As a 15 year resident of San Antonio during the Gregg Popovich era, I became a big fan of his leadership. His speech at the basketball hall of fame last night demonstrates more of his servant leadership style - thanking everyone from his high school teacher to his grandchildren for their support https://www.nba.com/watch/video/gregg-popovich-hall-of-fame-speech-class-of-2023 #NBA #Leadership #Basketball #SanAntonio

Hey! This is my #introduction post.
I’ve recently become the custodian of about 8-10 pounds of baseball, basketball, and football cards. Most as old as/older than I am. Anyone good at valuing these? They don’t have the same kind of obvious signs as Pokémon/yugioh.

“In Seattle, children have been able to ride public transit for free since last fall, an effort to cultivate the next generation of public transportation users, said Dow Constantine, the county executive of King County. The county also provides a free transit pass to anyone who sees a hockey or a basketball game at the Climate Pledge Arena in downtown Seattle.”https://arr.as/9 #Transit #KingCounty #Seattle #PublicTransit #Hockey #Basketball #RideFree #Children #ClimatePledgeArena
