    Did anybody see the Lithuania game? I didn?t see it but JV was the top scorer and according to reports dramatically outplayed Sabonis.

    Big man needs to rest up. Training camp is only in 3 weeks.

    Contract negotiations going well with CJ and Nance. Team thinks they will likely get something done with both before or during camp. Years are more the sticking point, not the annual salary

    What are the frameworks each are working within?

    What is the reaction within NBA front offices to an in-season tournament?

    Everyone watching Eurobasketball (not just Eurobasket), knew it will not work with Val and Sabonis together. No 3 second rule makes Valanciunas much better player then Sabonis in Eurobasket.
    A lot of people are questioning Lithuania's coach decisions and that some of those are influenced by people on top, including Arvydas Sabonis.
    You can easily see that they are playing much better with only one center at the floor, and there is quite a difference when that center is Valanciunas.

    Suns owner banned one year, fined 10 million

    https://sports.yahoo.com/phoenix-sun...161151811.html

    The investigation revealed the following key findings, as laid out in the report:

    Sarver said the N-word at least five times in repeating or purporting to repeat what a Black person said ? four of those after being told by both Black and white subordinates that he should not use the word, even in repetition of another.

    Sarver used language and engaged in conduct demeaning of female employees. Among other examples, he told a pregnant employee that she would be unable to do her job upon becoming a mother; berated a female employee in front of others and then commented that women cry too much; and arranged an all-female lunch so that female employees at Western Alliance Bank, where at the time he was CEO, could explain to female Suns employees how to handle his demands.

    Sarver commented and made jokes frequently to employees in large and small settings about sex and sex-related anatomy, including by making crude or otherwise inappropriate comments about the physical appearance and bodies of female employees and other women. On four occasions, Sarver engaged in workplace-inappropriate physical conduct toward male employees.

    Over 50 current and former employees reported that Sarver frequently engaged in demeaning and harsh treatment of employees ? including by yelling and cursing at them ? that on occasion constituted bullying under workplace standards.

    I hope they never win a championship aslong he's still a part of that organization.

    Which should be easy because NBA doesn't have parity

    slap on the wrist. Should have been much bigger fine and multiple draft picks.

    The desire by old white people to use the n-word is baffling. I mean I get it. It can be difficult to wrap your head around the fact that there is a word that YOU are not allowed to use but other people can. Hey, that's unfair! Maybe so, but you're literally a billionaire. Its not a big deal that there's a word you can't use. You'll survive this lack of privilege.

    I'm sure he'd rather give up infinite draft picks than the $10MM.

    Sounds like Sarver was a real rotten owner / boss in a lot of ways. He'll probably be pressured out of his ownership.

    But damn, it sure is something to watch the NBA , ESPN talking heads, LBJ all take this public moral high ground, when their biggest business partner, the CCP of China, commits the literal highest level of racism imaginable - genocide (the systematic killing and control of an ethnic, racial, and/or religious group). Uighurs

    So is Zion about to show up at media day looking like Duke Zion or is this typical off-season propaganda? Like Ben Simmons wetting threes in an empty gym.

    Little of column A, little of column B.

    Assuming no injuries, I'm sure being in a multi-month dedicated camp prior to the season will bring him to, or close to, his athletic peak. But even if it doesn't, they're not going to say that.
    Basketball.

    Yeah. I wish no harm on the Ball kid. Honestly I hope he finds success in Chicago. Until he plays us. And then we must crush him utterly.

    It's not funny that he's injured, more that we probably win the trade now getting a superb return of Sato and Temple

    Situation in Phoenix seems horribly toxic right now.

    We should finish ahead of them

    If you really believe that, you should be pounding our over and their under.

    Personally, I do not think vibes or press conferences should be used as major insight into a team. At the end of the day, they won nearly 70 games last year and return almost everyone. Assuming average health for both teams, it would be a major upset for Pels to finish with more wins

    I'd rather not have gambling money tied up for 9 months tbh

    Especially when the return is less than 2:1

    Far better ways to invest than waiting almost a year to see any sort of outcome
