Have known @coachthorpe for a very long time, but somehow only learned today that he is layering fruit by color in his sangria. We have a lot to be thankful for.
Important work by @louisahthomas on college football and COVID. Researchers simulated the effect of re-opening college football on the spread of COVID in a college town, in some scenarios it led to an 800 percent increase.
What did #Raptors do to get in @coachthorpe 's top five? They were good last year. Everyone on the roster but Kyle Lowry and Aron Baynes is 27 or younger. Pascal Siakam will be driven to avenge the bubble. And Tampa (Thorpe says Florida has magical powers).
Draft experts were a little hysterical with predictions in October. That's when @coachthorpe wrote "this is a one player draft." Steve Kerr to : "I can tell you with @ringerut hesitation, James was the top guy all along.”
They said it would never happen: @coachthorpe has been accused of anti-Florida bias.
Final minute of Game 7. One point game. Two of the savviest players in history, Chris Paul and James Harden, both bet on the same move: the flop.
"Do I get to speak now? It's been like ten minutes." Working with Bill Simmons.
Kyle Lowry is not as tall as Jimmy Fallon. He has short arms, middling athleticism, and when he started his NBA career he scored as many fouls as buckets. And he effects his team about as much as LeBron. FREE FOR ALL
Steve Kerr: "It's like, 'You've got to be kidding me.' It just has to stop. ... I don't know if it's related to five straight seasons of playing 100-plus games and all the wear and tear, but it's, it's devastating." The science says the schedule is a problem. The cost is absurd.
