    I remember when Sergei Monia was pretty untouchable.

    I went to opening night his rookie year and he dropped an efficient 8/6/5. I thought he was going to be good. That ended up being his best game.

    Depends on the word, doesn’t it? Meyers got the boot for the same reason Kanter did: he offended the powers that be in the NBA.

    I once delivered food to CJ Elleby himself.

    He ordered from a restaurant that was literally a 1 minute walk from where he lived… It really couldn’t have been much closer. Literally like 30-40 steps away.

    I guess if anyone can afford to do something like that, it’s an NBA player.

    Not complaining because I got paid to do so, but I thought it was funny.

    I do Uber Eats all the time. Especially during Covid when I did not want to walk into the restaurant to pick up my food. Am I lazy...no doubt, but I would think as strict as the NBA was with their testing.....it really was not that dumb of an idea.

    Plus, judging others for things that don't actively hurt those around them is kind of shitty.

    He's trying to be funny about how many players are well liked among fans. So he beats the dead horse that "x" player is untouchable.

    Elleby might have been my least favorite Blazer ever. He was trash as the kids say.

    Its tough because Elleby at times played actual minutes instead of being a practice body.

    OddsChecker released updated odds for Durant's next team on Thursday and the Phoenix Suns are second in odds to acquire the Brooklyn Nets star, at +350.

    Only the Boston Celtics, at -175, have better odds to trade for Durant, according to the site.

    The site has the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors each at +400 in its odds, with the Portland Trail Blazers rounding out the Top 5 at +900.
