re: Realistic off-season wish list (Draft/FA/Trade) - Baron
I’m seeing a lot of offseason plans from people that don’t include Favors. Do people actually think he won’t be on the team next year or are people just still annoyed with his play in the bubble? We have Favors bird rights and his market is projecting to be a little thinner than originally thought. ...

re: Next ANTIFA/BLMarxist Rioting Target: Pennsylvania - Baron
A coroner ruling something a homicide just means that another person caused the death. As in, it wasn’t natural causes or self inflicted. This isn’t charging or saying he was murdered. This is not news, just procedure. This says more about CNN than anything ...

[quote]CJ’s contract ends in 21[/quote] Except he signed an extension that kicks in soon and he’s going to get paid way too much for his production. Here is what he is set to make the next 4 seasons (keep in mind he turns 29 in September): 20-21 - 29.3m 21-22 - 30.8m 22-23 - 33.3m 23-24 -...

re: John Brennan ran a secret task force out of Langley to investigate Trump. - Baron
And the RNC got warnings and attempted hacks too. Idk if you know this but government agencies or organizations with government connections, specifically ones with valuable information, get warnings all the time on their vulnerabilities and hacking attempts. I’m not tying to force you to answer this...

[quote]Why wouldn't Honest Bob's team have uncovered and reported the origins of the Russian meddling to include the CIA etc?[/quote] I genuinely don’t know if they did or didn’t.

re: John Brennan ran a secret task force out of Langley to investigate Trump. - Baron
[quote]The earliest warning to the DNC that they were being hacked was in September 2015.[/quote] I’ve read those warnings and it was general phishing warnings that go out to a multitude of government agencies and government connected organizations. That isn’t anything new or unique. But you a...

re: John Brennan ran a secret task force out of Langley to investigate Trump. - Baron
You’re falling for Decatur’s schtick by arguing with him on that point. You’re allowing him to reframe the argument to be about the CIA’s function and ability to share info with other law enforcement agencies. That’s not the issue here. The issue here is, and this is the most succinctly I can put th...

[quote]It’s not news that the CIA collaborates with domestic law enforcement agencies when the subject matter involves foreign intelligence. [/quote] Depending on the circumstances and facts, you are correct. That is why I pointed the “when” was important. In this case, Sperry is reporting that ...

re: John Brennan ran a secret task force out of Langley to investigate Trump. - Baron
People are missing the boat here. The revealing information isn’t that he set up a task force to investigate Trump, it’s the date. What people should want to know is exactly [i]when[/i] did they start and [i]what[/i] was the predicate information used to justify their actions. As has been revealed w...

re: Bird Writes: 3 ideal picks at 13 are Patrick Williams, Kira Lewis, and Poku - Baron
Watching Poku’s highlights for the national team had me interested. But if you watch any of the full international games or his league games, there are HUGE red flags. I know someone said this before but it is exactly right: the competition he plays against in his league looks like rec league level....

re: What’s y’all thoughts on Becky Hammon? - Baron
I’m not saying she can’t be successful, just that your Derek Fisher example was contrary to your point. Hammon might end up being a great head coach, and I think someone will give her a shot. This is probably THE most important coaching decision in the Pels short franchise history, and I would pr...

[quote]I think that the likelihood of fraud under that regimen is near-certain. But the states following that regimen all voted Blue last time anyway, with the exception of Utah and Montana.

re: Most Likely Star to get traded - Baron
[quote]How many more points does CJ give up? When McCollum is On Court the Blazers DRtg is 113.6 when he's off, it's 111.4. So he makes the Blazers defense 2.2 points worse every 100 possesions. Jrue improves the Pels defense 3.9 points per 100. Taking those stats at face value, going from Jrue to...

re: Year in Review - Turnovers - Baron
You might be right, he may consistently improve and turn into that player. I mean, he clearly made a jump this year, so maybe he has a couple more in him. We just disagree on his trajectory. I worry less about his 3p% and more about his touch around the rim and athleticism. Those are two things that...

re: Year in Review - Turnovers - Baron
[quote]Well, when Zo was with the Lakers, he wasn't the worst in the league, but he did finish in the 14th and 15th percentiles for his position -- still very bad. That suggests that replacing our coach isn't going to fix the problem. [/quote] No it won’t. Lonzo’s issues in the half court are cle...
