    Its beyond ridiculous…

    I actually asked a guy who played in the league for a decade about this the other night. He said it’s nonsense… guys know if they are playing or not by 2 PM or so….

    I mean they wake up and eat and really get moving around noon typically… get to the arena around 2-3 to try to get loose and receive some treatment and all for whatever they are nursing…he says that they almost immediately know if they are 80-20 or 20-80 to play…

    Now as a normal human that makes total sense to me… it doesnt take long to know “man i probably shouldnt” or “yeah im fine” when i go to the gym and someone asks me if i wanna play 3 on 3…. like you can tell VERY quickly after a few dribbles, shots, drives to the hoop whether you’ve got it today or whether your ankle ,knee, etc needs another day/week / whatever

    He said the problem is that there are too many levels of approivals to go through because the players make so much money…. trainers talk to coaches, coaches talk to management, management talks to owners, etc…. that part also makes sense ot me as well… if i give giannis 5/$220m as an owner i want some say in whether he plays a meaningless game or not…

    BUt he said the player essentially knows by 2 PM if he “should” play but all thelevels of people making the decision are the problem…. i mean you got to understand an owner of a sports franchise has a lot of stuff going on…. he isnt efen thinking about the fact he owns a baskebtall team until after 5 pm most days…..

    its kinda like say your boss is outta town… and there are 90% of things you do without him…but 10% you wait until you get confirmation from him if you should do it… well giannis playing is sometimes one of those things

    now the other stuff like…. the total randoms playing or not playing? he says thats mostly teams being scared to rule a guy in/out and then changing mind later…. and they are worried about fines fom the league…and its easier just to leave everyone questionable until the last minute.

    That makes sense too..i mean in the grand scheme of things whether jeff teague plays or not does not matter at alll to 99.9999999% of the human population

    Actually great perspective. Still gonna get pissed though cuz the world revolves around me.

    RW + Boogie + 6 5K guys ===

    Is it possible Boogie just isn’t ever going to “smash” as a Warrior? Everyone is waiting for him to post this monster game, but what if it just won’t ever happen? I suppose if it will it’s tonight against a team without a front court.

    I have some, full disclosure, 9 of 75.

    Not trying to. Like I said, if it’s ever going to happen it’s tonight. I just know people have been playing him every slate waiting for this monster game, but it’s totally plausible it’s not ever going to happen.
