Re: NBA ‘20-‘21 Offseason

I don't think the absolute value matters as much as the relative value. Those max salaries have exploded with an exploding cap, but it's still only 25-35% of the cap space (a soft cap, so even less as a % of actual spending). If the top 10 players were paid what they're worth they'd probably make 5...

Re: The Politics Thread

I know it's probably best for the future of the country if he faces real consequences for all the horsefeathers he pulled, but given that, as mentioned above, it's going to be just plea deals and endless appeals, personally I'd rather everyone in the media just collectively agree to ignore him. Real...

Bat poop crazy Trumpers breaking off from the GOP is the best possible outcome of the Trump presidency. Break the conservatives up They are the GOP, the time for breaking off was in 2016. It ain’t happening. The only result of this is Fox can claim it has some sort of newsy integrity. I'm guessing ...

Darn.

Related, is there anything the House can do regarding the pretty obvious insider trading she did back in the spring to tie her up in DC and keep her off the trail?

Re: 2020 Offseason Thread

Mired in mediocrity is the worst place you can be. They either need to go all in this year and accept that there's a 5 year rebuild coming or completely tear it down. They already wasted a ton of player value sending a very mediocre team onto the field in 2019. I would find a five-year rebuild to b...

Trump thinks he's gonna win thousands of votes in recounts. Once the Georgia recount is over, and he still loses, I think that's when he's gonna have to start accepting some level of reality, even if he doesn't give a true concession. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/13/trump-interview-reelect...
