The Arkansas TBT team has made it to Round 3 for the first time in it's history after beating Omaha. Trey Wade hit a bit 3 late...didn't see it just reporting the facts as I know them.

For those interested, the Bobby Portis Foundation will hold a charity game at UALR’s Jack Stephens Center on July 30.  Portis will be there, along with “10+” unnamed current and former NBA players.

I'm afraid the strain was more than they could bear.

Can our Admin change the thread title to Austin Allen's Cock?  If so, then put me down for 10 inches, at least.

Russell, for those who don't know, was compared to Wilt Chamberlain during their careers, and for all time afterwards.  The general tilt goes "Wilt was the greatest offensive player, Russell the greatest defensive player."  The argument went from there.

There are modern statistical methods to rate players today, far beyond the rebound, steal, and blocked shot stats used in yesteryear (bs and steals were not even calculated during Wilt and Russell's time).  It is not nearly as subjective as it was in the early NBA.

Russell is so far ahead of everyone else in defensive win shares is is not even close.  DWS has been shown to be a MUCH more important stat in relation to winning than any other.  Point?  At the things that mean winning games, Bill Russell was the GOAT.

Russell was on 2 straight HS State Championships, 2 straight NCAA  Championships, the Olympic title, won the NBA title in his first and last years and 9 in between.  His supporting cast came and went, he was the icon of those Celtic teams.  When he didn't play, those "great" Celtic supporting casts had a terrible winning %.  He was the first Black NBA head coach, and the first player/coach in the NBA to win a championship.

edit, added from the CBS Sports tribute: ...above everything else Russell was on the court, he was the sport's greatest winner. He lost only two playoff series in his entire career. He never once lost a winner-take-all game. Not in college. Not in the Olympics. Not in the NBA. He won all 21 of such games he played...end edit.

Wilt was a great athlete in other sports, of course.  Just ask him.  Bill fucking Russell made the US Olympic team in the fucking high jump.  He gave his spot to the third place finisher because he was already going on the basketball squad.  He claims he could jump high enough to look DOWN into the rim. 

Anyway.  It was a subjective argument 30 years ago, Wilt vs Russell.  Not so much anymore.

Chet got a lisz Franc injury in a pro-am game and is done for the season so JWill maybe just solidified his spot in the rotation for the Thunder.

PBev supposedly going to the Lakers who...probably good move. Beverly will give that bunch a shot in the arm and I aint talking about a covid shot.

I would hate to play against PBev.  I would love to have him as a teammate.

They need some toughness and relentlessness, and somebody not looking to shoot every time he touches the ball.

that's an interesting move. westbrook absolutely hates beverly, as do lakers fans for him giving lebron a knee to the nuts a few years ago.
