Holding and hands to face were the 2 plays right before so it was 1st and 30 before the OPI.

Re: 2019 NBA Offseason

Brought back Rondo, McGee and KCP also and signed Danny Green. Really like the last one since they desperately needed shooting. They also got Quinn Cook from Warriors so they got another guy who can shoot. Yeah...they certainly could have benefited from Kawhi but being able to spend their cap space...

Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

My comp would be a young DeAndre Jordan/Emeka Okafor. I saw somewhere (maybe ESPN during draft) that Chandler was a comp for Gafford which works as well. A more realistic comp of Gafford is Stromile Swift. Tony Battie, Bo Outlaw, and Andris Biedrins are a couple others I had in mind as well. All wer...

Re: Chicago Bulls offseason

Thank god the Bulls didn't do what Jalen Rose "proposed" (and hinted that there were insider info on this) earlier today which was 7th pick and LaVine for 4th pick and Ball.

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I can surely understand the appeal to Harper of being the top FA on the market not once, but twice. He's young enough that he could do it. What I don't understand is the appeal of a short-term deal when he'll surely get opt outs in his $350 million contract after 2 years, 3, 4 - whichever one he wa...

Re: The Bryce is Right, Bitch

I still don’t see how a high AAV and low year deal is in his best interest, outside of some easily achieved options. The only way it's in his interest is if there's not a mega-longterm deal, which seems unlikely. The only other explanation (and this wouldn't be in his best interest), is if pride (o...

There have actually only been two legitimately baller moments in the entire Epstein era. And one of them from a player he didn't even acquire. 1) Javy's walk-off, knee-drop HR in AA 2) Schwarber personally ending the Pirates franchise's entire flirtation with relevance.
