Basketball stuff.

I think we can agree that LeBron has an edge on Jordan solely due to his superior trolling and meme skills. The Ultimate Warrior shirt coming off the plane in Cleveland was top kek.

Yes, Jordan had the sense of humor of Himmler.  Lebron is le epic meme GOAT/twitter-master/interview troller

That's some in-depth analysis. But Charles Barkley doesn't believe in analytics so I don't know if any of this matters...

Novak Djokovic lost in the 3rd round at Wimbledon ending his Grand Slam bid and his streaks of consecutive QFs and SFs. Roger has a nice path to the final now.

With Wawrinka going down, Murray also has a nice path. Looking like 2012 all over again.

That would be really exciting. It would be nice to see the Celtics give Lebron fits again.

Welp, there goes any chance of the Celtics landing KD. You can't follow meeting TB12 with this shit:

I'm so glad KD signed with the Warriors, a team just on the precipice of being a real contender in the league. I think that this addition guarantees a playoff berth, maybe even winning a couple rounds.


Also I fucking hate KD and the Warriors and the NBA. >:(

KD is the Joe Paterno of basketball. A scared little bitch afraid to do the right thing.

They will just have to pay a bunch in luxury tax I guess. It definitely seems like a "win now" move, which is dumb for the Warriors since they built through patience.

As far as I know they can afford it this year because Curry isn't on a max yet. Given the giant salary cap increase over the next couple years, they can make it work. Plus they aren't paying Barnes and told him to peace the fuck out.

Nearly everyone with a pulse is getting a max contract this off season. Cheaper than a max next year. LeBron, KD, Westbrook, Curry, et al will be getting 5 year for 175-200 million next year. Cheaper to lock lesser players into a max now and avoid paying them for 5 years.
