    HOU looks beatable. Cousins looked gimpy.

    Trae Young threw one of the greatest lobs I have ever seen tonite: he wasnt even over half court when he put it up and it was right on the money. He can make a strong case for ROTY but I think there has been too much hype to overtake Luka in the race.

    Both damn good players, but any "hype" Doncic is getting is well deserved.

    Me neither, but they've been surprisingly viable since his injury.

    Luka is one of the best clutch shooters in the league, and a rookie. Mind boggling...

    Im curious, do you think the guy knew the racial undertone within what he said? Probably, but I'm wondering if he made it as some sort of sexual reference and was ignorant about the racist undertone included with it. As I admitted, I didnt realize it the first time I read it, I just thought it was sexually-related.

    I doubt he knew/thought that their were any racial undertones.
    I'm with you thinking the comment was a poor reference to a sexual act.

    Totally agree.
    In my world every day. Getting on your knees or putting on knee pads is all about being on the meat. Literally there is a joke every day multiple times. The world we live in now is going nuts. Not to say at all that the fan and Westbrook were not wrong in the way they handled the situation.

    We do a couple smaller fights there in the summer . It’s great for that, NOT today’s NBA.

    I still have the capacity memorized. 17,505. Chic Hearn used to brag about its size every game on the radio. Jack Kent Cook built The Fabulous Forum!

    Chic? He's not a female. It was Chick Hearn.

    When I was a Laker fan before moving to the Northwest in 1974, Women's Lib hadn't taken over yet. The media spelled his name then as Chic. Nowadays, we're all Chicks.
