PSA: when assuming control of something, it’s “taking the reins,” not “taking the reigns.” One is simply guiding horses, not becoming ruler of all the land.
What if I only want to lead a horse though? 🤔
Let me second Z-Man’s recommendation of the Bill Russell documentary on Netflix. A well-done film about a remarkable human. And Clyde provides oral history.
I prefer “taking the rains”. I just stand outside and get soaked.
What’s the O/U on tiktok dunkers getting 2-way spots next year to beat McClung?
I was underwhelmed by Sims, was expecting more creativity. Dude gets up though!
There’s also “taking the rainns”, which means you’ve agreed to answer calls to the RAINN hotline, but only the ones specifically accusing Rainn Wilson.
Mac McClung was amazing.
My only question is: who is Mac McClung and can he dribble, pass, shoot, or rebound?
McClung was in the g-league up until 5 days ago when he signed a two-way with Philly. I know nothing about the guy but I assume he doesn’t get signed of it weren’t for the dunk contest invite and his being an overwhelming favorite.
Philly had him on an Exhibit-10 earlier this year before letting him sign with their affiliate.
I wasn’t surprised by Sims’s performance. He’s an athletic freak, but jumping high is a different skill. You can see it with Obi last year or McClung this year, they’re able to twist into 360s and do more with the ball in the air. I think there’s an advantage to being skinny, think Tony Hawk doing a 900.
Sims also got his invite like a week ago, so he didn’t have much time to prepare.
I thought that with Sims leaping ability he could have tried to dunk from the free throw line which is a classic difficult dunk.
I largely ignore the NBA Midseason Marketing Event because it’s (usually) pretty boring, but I just read that Jimmy Buckets met Carlos Alcaraz in Buenos Aires, which means he is not an All-Star. How did that happen?
Miami are very mediocre and they gave a spot to Bam
Yeah, I think it’s that Miami is bad and the East needed another C so they went with Bam instead.
Idk, it’s the all-star game. There’s a reason you’re not watching and I’m not watching.
I feel like I’ve been taking the rains for several years now
This all star crap is at its lowest low, which is odd because they league is more fun than ever to watch. They definitely need to switch it out for a mid season tournament or something. Anything.
Yes, I’m on DVR and the opening round of the skills challenge is embarrassing. There’s good college ball on so screw it. Will look at the game to see NYK Dr. J, but yes, dreck…
I did enjoy the Rising Stars game. But why a celebrity game? I do not need to see Albert Pujols brick layups.
there’s only one thing basketball wise that matters today – who’s the last player selected…
Rama – I didn’t want to be the one to say it. I think spell check often strikes. And some versions, like free rein and free rein are conceptually challenging.
Mclung can really dunk. I was surprised. He was at Georgetown I think and never did much. Globetrotters will find a use for him.
ramahawk channeling me in his “taking the reins” post at the top of today’s thread. I love it.
It was in an article the bot posted, and since I’ve seen it a bunch here, figured may as well say something. It’s a literate blog.
I also figured I’d add that there’s no “I” in going well together (complementary).
