The bucks, I root for the bucks. Wanna know what else? I was happy when Desmond returned a kick all the way for the Packers in a Super Bowl. I was happy Woodson was on the packers.

I don’t like the college either one went to, and have issues with Desmond personally. Same with Parker. Go Bucks!

So, wanna hat?

I have a hat that says “I’m not bitter”. You can’t have that one. Cause you are. How the pistons doing? Should they tank?

I ain’t bitter at all we gonna smoke you fools. 

And no tanking is stupid as hell. It’s the super easy take for lazy sports fans to say “they should just lose” but the reality is that it doesn’t even work. What’s their gold standard? 76ers. 8th in the east.

Celtics maybe? I’m not even sure that’s really tanking. They just burned the Nets real bad. Outside of that, no. Tanking is a myth.

Losing the last few games of the season once the playoffs are lost to get a better draft spot is not the same thing as blowing everything up and tanking dwags

Yeah Celtics were built off trades, and then drafting well. Also being the Boston Celtics and being attractive to free agents

Goose - the sixers? 8th in the east? How is that working?

They've got youth, assets and cap space - the process is working there.

Oh stop selling out to “the process” branding. We’re not 76ers fans we don’t have to be nice. Fultz is probably a flop and the only two corner stones have as many injury concerns as Blake griffin

Wait. 

Derrick Rose.

That’s what I meant.

Shut up.

And we’re talking basketball here. Not any other sport. Baseball isn’t really tanking in the same sense in my opinion.

The same could be said for Detroit.

Here's an easy way to view this - if you could trade with the 76ers right now would you?

Complete Roster
Cap situation
All Draft picks

Over a 7 year horizon.

Aye or Nay?

Here’s an easier way... every championship team pretty much ever that wasn’t built on tanking vs the 8th place 76ers who have a flop of a number 1 pick.

Missed your aye or nay. We'll get to watch it.

It'll be interesting to see how the Pistons/Celtics/76ers fare. All trying to build in different ways.

Wow, talk about a bad beat

_________________
SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Ha, I watched that with my son during halftime and was asking if it mattered. I didn't know what the line was and muttered it might to some.
