The NBA is a sham and cares only about the money and what Nike tells them.

The NBA refused to play the All Star game in North Carolina over a bathroom issue but have no problem playing games in a brutal totalitarian country. Then Steve Kerr and Popovich have no problem in criticizing this country but go mute on China.
kinda bummed Morey blew this up before even getting over there... was really looking forward to a "woke" Kyrie Irving getting deported for making some Free Hong Kong protest in China
but the whole thing is typical American. Make ignorant statement on some other Country's foreign policy. Walk it a bit back but don't really apologize. And always side with the money bc everyone has a price (especially a group of 30 billionaires)
All those Chinese games sucked anyways, but watching Zion dunk on ppl
Oladipo channeling his inner Paulie Jorgensen range.
This quote from Mark Cuban, who was completely stunned by the NBA news (and surely hates it), is why I like him:
"This is not a situation where you fake it 'til you make it or try to sound or act important...The NBA has hired people with expertise in those areas and they are working with people from the government and other people with expertise. We have to defer to them and that's exactly what we will do."
He also made a public commitment to make sure the Mavericks hourly employees still get paid even if they can't work.
He can be brash and I don't always agree with him, but he's always struck me as a good dude.
Wild story about the NBA Players Association conference call today & Adam Silver's update for players. Interesting quote about how the "NBA is sifting through a lot of bad options" to resume the season with no fans at games.

Utah Jazz announce the passing of Jerry Sloan.
He was an amazing person and player in both college and NBA and excellent coach.
Growing up in Northern Indiana I remember him as part of a good Bulls team. Stormin Norman VanLier (Guard), Chet Walker, Bob Love (Starting forwards) and Tom Boerwinkle/Artis Gilmore (Centers). Won’t swear to having first names right but it was early 70’s.
Separate names with a comma.
