So Enes Freedom was traded to the Rockets where they expect to waive him. The guy is being blackballed out of the league because he likes...Freedom. What a joke. Fuck the NBA.

He's a borderline player, it's hard for him to make a team.

Like Kapernick he has taken to activism and that obviously takes a large amount of time that a marginal guy like him needs to be using to improve his game.

Do I respect him and 100% agree with his message?  Abso-damn-lutely.  The Chinese trolls that are constantly harassing him on Twitter are an amusing diversion.

I mean the guy is an 11 year veteran that I believe has averaged around 10 or 11 points per game. I wouldn't call him "Borderline" by any means. I'm guessing his minutes dropped dramatically this season when he came out of the closet.

38 points after a two-week break for Kyrie

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

The Memphis Grizzlies are still the 3rd best basketball team on the planet.

42 wins and Ja goes for 46 at Chicago in a close game.

I think every time I've ever tried to watch it's been blacked out. Never seen Ja play at all other than in highlights

He’s pretty much become my favorite player in a league where I typically just cheer for former Hogs. I need to spend a couple to few times a year going to see him play in Memphis since it’s only 2 hours away

I would highly recommend.  TV really doesn't do him justice vs watching him in person especially from the lower bowl of the Forum.  One of the more incredible stats I've seen on him is he is something like 3rd in the league in PPG in the paint, at 6'3".  You are almost guaranteed to see a SC Top 10 play (or multiple) each game.

The Grizzlies in general are very fun to watch and seem more like a college team with their comradery and how they pull for each other.  Very refreshing.

East playoffs are going to be incredible this year.

West I just don’t see anyone beating the Suns in a series. Too good on defense.

Is this not travelling, at least in the traditional sense of the foul?

The NBA quietly changed the wording of the rule a few years ago to accommodate LeBron and James Harden who simply decided they needed 3 steps before shooting (also to allow for the strange look of the Euro-step and the abominable "step back").

They invented a definition for the "gather step" (step one after terminating the dribble) and then the traditional two steps after the gather.

NBA refs will swear to you that nothing has really changed and players only get two steps - the very definition of memory-holing.

Wish I’d known that “gather-step” term when some Corndog fans were bitching about the Notae foul the other night.

He and Luka are so good…they seem slow compared to everyone else but get it done for sure.

Luka and the Mavs look MUCH better since the Porzingis trade.

So happy for Moody, Warriors are going to be loaded for several years.
