    Tomorrow Im just stacking Giannis and Embiid in every lineup. I remember a game like 2 years ago they combined for like 140pts.

    Lets just say he picked the wrong hill to stand on. He is calling out the cop for shooting the girl with the knife cocked about to stab the other girl. The cop should be brought to justice for saving the girl who was about to be stabbed to death. If you read his tweets, about 90 percent of the respondents are calling him out for either 1) being misinformed, or 2 for being a race baiter. I am talking thousands of replies.

    I am too, but hedging a little, because Giannis isn’t right.

    I get it, and agree with you he was wrong there. He took it down, and though I still don’t think he got it entirely right, his platform and intent are being used correctly. How can we lambast him for being a little jumpy when the predicate of so many defenses for garbage murdering cops is ‘they got a little jumpy because that dude was holding something.’?

    That’s a pretty hard equivalence to conceptualize for me, especially when his efforts make so much sense. It’s heartbreaking to have to do this over and over and over while we make excuses for a multiple-tiered system of failure that oppresses pretty much everyone who doesn’t look like me.

    Lebrons deleted tweet was dumb but I really doubt it’s going to lead to anyone storming the Capitol tomorrow.

    Anyway, just wanted to say again that Shake Milton sucks.

    Winning LU in the clutch had the Mann/Kennard stack. Ballsy.

    Yes, but then he put up the current even worse tweet. Also, if you ever cared to actually look into police shootings and statistics, you would find the argument he is trying to make is false.

    thats what I did but I had Westbrik and Dudd Curry

    I’m done with this topic though. Who do we like tomorrow?

    Which one is worse? What is worse about it? Why are any of his current tweets bad?

    Furthermore, what is your goal here? I know you said you’re done, but what are you really trying to point out about LeBron’s actions?

    Also, you know as well as I do that the numbers are not good when you actually compare side-by-side ratios in terms of shootings as opposed to raw #‘s. You can check any data set you want here, and it’s correlatively worse towards minorities, specifically black men. https://mappingpoliceviolence.org/

    I will let you explain it to me. You can’t win an argument by saying “you should know”.

  • tmarohl

    Which black life mattered more? The girl who was about to be stabbed to death, or the girl with the knife who was shot by the cop? The girl with the knife fits the narrative. The person about to be killed does not.

    Ok, so we have established that he was wrong, and he took that down while acknowledging it. He STILL wasn’t race baiting with that one, and isn’t with any of his prior ones. Cops are not a race. Which current tweet is worse, and where is he race baiting?

    You just can’t afford to pick any busts at all anymore. Curry busted badly. I wanted to play Fox but he killed me badly the night before which was why I went Curry. Then the two headed TWolves pick in Edwards and Towns killed me as well. Wait, it was mostly Edwards who killed me. This is why I dont usually like to roster him. I guess you can also picking Isaiah Stewart was stupid too. But yeah, it sucks. Pick one bust or two busts will definitely prevent you from minimum GPP cashing. So lame. Should have went Embiid over Towns. Or hell, Capela. Capela was in my original dummy lineup until I had to make changes to accomodate the injury news.

    Yes, he is race baiting, because he is asking for accountability for a white cop who shot a black person who was trying to kill another black person. He should be congratulating the cop for saving a life. I asked him how he would feel if his daughter was the one in pink. I guarantee you if the cop who shot the knife wielding suspect was black, it wouldn’t be an issue. I.e. race baiting. Cop did his job. Saved a life and took down the criminal. The only criticism I would have is he should have shot her in the ass, because much less likely to miss and hit an innocent bystander.

    I tilted 66% of bankroll on da Griz

    -4.5? vs G league Clip guards?

    Thats disrespect!
    Com’on man!

    In-game action locked in profits

    I put 1/5th of big play on Clips +575 when they were down ~16.

    Another 1/5th on clips getting pts (+12 to +7) paid back @ -115 …. yeah they goose yah for in game puts

  • fleishmo6

    Unfortunately, most just read headlines or hear clips and react to what they know.
    The media pushes that anti police rhetoric and others just react. This was yesterday’s headline on yahoo

    16 year old black girl fatally shot by police in Ohio
    Instead headline should have read
    police saves life of teen girl
    This contributes so much to our polarization and division

    ChipotleAddict and papagates both tie to win the $1500 massive tourney… $150k apiece.

    Exact same lineup…… on an 11 game slate. Which seems borderline impossible unless sharing plays/pools.
