Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

They could still get in the top 6 with a little luck in the lottery. It would help if they tank their way into the top 5 so they have a better chance of staying there or even get in the top 3, but I'm not sure there's that BIG of a drop off in talent/potential from 6 to 8 or 10. Another thing to th...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

9 or 10 is still the most likely place they end up, IMO. Is the incremental value to say 6 really worth not maximizing your assets? I don't think history tells you it is. You only get there by talking yourself into the bad logic of "this is a 6 man draft". In reality, if you can maximize y...

Re: Cubs starting their own network?

I assume that there are still a lot of roadblocks with the streaming services airing sports events, with blackout rules in place? Is there any roadmap for a local simulcast + streaming service add-on for national distribution for a single team sports network?

Re: Cubs starting their own network?

The nets, Michael Kay interviews, Mike Francesca simulcasts and lower level college sports. It's god awful programming that makes it truly pointless to exist. A Cubs channel alone, without at least one partner like the blackhawks, would be a terrible product for consumers. Even that might be pushin...

do you know who ben simmons is A really confusing guy. I don't follow the NBA much, but it's weird to see a 6'10" PG who doesn't shoot 3's or FT's. Well, most players 6'10" play PF and/or SF so it's just weird seeing someone so tall initiating the offense while playing PG. Simmons honestl...

Re: Sports Media Thread

I'm guessing the Bulls have pretty good TV numbers since they are able to keep filling the stadium. Still a dedicated sports network without the Cubs is going go be pretty lean for the market size at least.

Re: Politics & Current Events

My cousin randomly texted me today asking my height and weight. I was so confused until I found out he was trying to compare me to Trump.

I'm 6'4" 260 and Trump is definitely fatter than me, fwiw. I do do have very broad shoulders/frame fwiw too.

Seems like a perfect draft to trade down. Very few WR or OT's going in the first round in the mocks I've read.
