    In other news, I guess I never really paid attention to the Paul George girlfriend saga, but it's fascinating.

    It's described here: https://heavy.com/sports/2019/04/dan...ge-girlfriend/

    Cliffs:

    - Paul impregnated stripper Daniela Rajic in 2014.

    - He offered her $1 million to get an abortion but she refused.

    - She filed a paternity suit against him.

    - Once paternity was confirmed, Paul came to terms with her, agreeing to a large "financial support package" and sharing custody.

    - He got her pregnant again in 2017, in an apparent one-night stand.

    - They're now together as a couple, and there's a rumor that he's gotten her pregnant yet again.


    She's not stripping anymore. Why bother at this point?

    BUMP

    Season starting on October 22.

    Cousins will be out for the season without having played 1 game for the Lakers.

    However, the Lakers only paid $3.5m for him, so this isn't devastating. They were granted a $1.75m disability cap exception because of this.

    Lakers will be playing the Clippers on opening day, which was expected to feature Lebron/Davis versus Kawhi/George, but George won't be ready until sometime in November, due to his own injury.

    Looking forward to the NBA season, even though I don't think the Lakers will be good enough to compete for a title. But they should make the playoffs this year.

    It's going to be wild in the west now that the Warriors have been neutered.

    Lakers probably have the biggest range of outcomes: I could see them anywhere from a top-2 seed all the way to eighth (do not think they miss playoffs, barring injuries). I could see them winning the title, and I could see them getting bounced in the first round.

    I think my Blazers have a huge range of possibilities, too (but not title ambition).

    Lebron took last season off and it's quite possible he comes back and destroys the league. Anthony Davis is an absolute stud. Unfortunately, they shipped off the rest of their good players (Kuzma is just ok, imo) and future to get him.

    But just the best versions of LBJ and Davis are enough. I don't think Lebron can be at the level in his peak Miami seasons, but who knows, after a year of rest and half assed effort, maybe the batteries are recharged.

    have to get to the west, but just listened to simmons/russillo and here's what im pondering on for the east:

    NYK U 27.5 -122
    PHL O 54.5 -110
    CHA U 23.5 -110
    WSH U 27.5 -150

    Heat to win the Southeast -120...taking this one over taking them O 43.5 -137...I want to get some exposure to Spo and think that the cheapest way to do it is a division win...

    Wait, am I reading this right? The Heat are -120 to win the Southeast, yet they're projected to only win 43?

    that is correct...

    I just think that the value is taking them to win the division and paying less juice...their only real competition is ORL...other teams are ATL/WSH/CHA who have literally no shot to win the division...

    Yeah I forgot that the NBA only plays 4 games against teams in their own division. And their division is still crap, just like last year.

    But yeah I think they're winning over 43. I would fire on it myself but I don't have patience to wait this shit out for so many months.

    true, that fucking blows...but think with the NBA being fairly predictable, it's probably some of the best futures wagering you can get on...

    PHL is the only one that kinda worries me, just from a "load management" standpoint...but I think the east is shit enough and they have enough talent that they can still beat the hell outta the teams that they need to when they're pulling that "load management" shit...

    just listened to the west podcast...

    lotta interesting nuggets, but picked out just 2...

    GS U 47.5 EV
    HOU O 53.5 -139

    kerr confirmed that klay most likely to miss the entire season which is nice...

    love me some Houston as a regular season dominant team...

    really wanted to take UTH O 53.5, but passed on it...like that team a lot, but just cant get there...

    Watching Laker game. Started out strong, but finished up the first quarter with a lineup of:

    Cook
    Howard
    Dudley
    Pope
    Daniels

    And it went bad.

    Yikes.
    I smoke color purple
    I'm up in here feeling like silly
    Nappy ass dreads, what's that you say?
    Watch your mouth, Milli Vanilli
    You can get snaked, you can get faked
    I'll buy the bitch that you feeling
    'Cause you thought that she was an angel
    That bitch ain't no angel, I treat her halo like a Frisbee

    Knicks are making the 8th seed and going to lose in 5 in the first round
    It is in my bones which sucks so can make it hard to move sometimes. Trying to spend as much time with friends and family.

    Yeah it's kind of a thin team. Will improve a little when Kuzma is back, but I just don't think this team has enough depth to win a title, even though they'll be markedly improved with Davis.

    Title? Your answering a question nobody is asking.

    you’re into the purple drank again aren’t you

    AD really faded in the second half, but if I were a Lakers fan I'm psyched tonight because Lebron looks entirely different from last year. Nice to see him give a shit again.

    Danny Green is going to feast with all the wide open looks he'll get. But man, that roster looks thin...

    Now that the Warriors have been neutered and there's no superteams anymore, the Clippers may actually have enough to win the title this year.

    We shall see.

    I would be very surprised if it's the Lakers, though.
