Re: Politics & Current Events

I think it's fair to say Biden is the frontrunner and frontrunner status in April is fairly suspect as to its meaningfulness and predictive value for November. frankly, it comes down to a handful of states. It's irrelevant how far ahead or behind a candidate is in many of the states that are not in...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Rough math on how well we've managed this relative to other countries (TONS of caveats here, of course, but these are all advanced countries we're talking about): By the end of this week, we're on pace to have more cases than the next five countries combined (Italy, Spain, Germany, France & Chi...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Now this whole "were gonna hire a POC as GM thing" instead of just hiring a POC looks like they're just reacting to the negative press to appease people rather than maybe just actually looking at their old boys club hiring policy that's consistently led to them being one of the least dive...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Their inability to fire Gar and clear Pax out of the way I think led to the perception that this wasn't a full control job and led to 3 of their first 4 candidates bowing out. That is heavily speculative, at absolute best, unless I missed something. The odds that its just coincidence are so low. Ma...

Okay, maybe like 85% wrong.

Even if they insisted on Pax helping with the process, the still should have had him turn in his...

We had an extended family trip to the Outer Banks for the first week of June. Going through similar stuff. Hoping we can just book for the same week in 2021.

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Apparently Justin Zanik, Jazz GM interviewed today.

I have to imagine he was on the short list even if the initial reports didn't list him since they interviewed today.

Either that or the Bulls pulled together a face saving interview really fast.

Karnisovas to interview mid-week.

Sounds like Simon is being denied permission too.

Lol bolls.

Pessimism time, these guys are being "denied" becuase they don't actually have interest in this horsefeathers show.

Hollinger has reported that Buchanan and Simon were the two guys he heard the most buzz about.

Yea Hurts has a wide window, I think, because teams have to on some level commit to building an offense around him. He could go late first, or he drop to day 3.
