Took a look at the upcoming decisions that will confront the new decision-maker the Bulls are hiring for their front office: (ESPN+)

On the 20th anniversary of the Kingdome's implosion, I chatted with my colleague @kevinarnovitz  on @peltoncast  about his experience vending beer and pop at the Kingdome during the (abbreviated) summer of 1994:

Joined @BobbyMarks42  on the Hoop Collective podcast with @WindhorstESPN  to discuss how the NBA's losses due to the current shutdown could affect the upcoming offseason (whenever that happens):

This week's @peltoncast  is Sonics-heavy as we induct the duo of Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton into our Hall of Fame and remember the GP trade and Flip-sanity from the year 2003:

Watching HBO's well-done documentary "The Scheme," the most striking thing was how little concern anyone on either side of the FBI's misguided investigation seemed to have for what's in the best interests of players. Until that's our north star, the system will remain broken.

With the MVP trio of Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett officially headed to the @Hoophall , I took a look at where this class of NBA players ranks all-time:

Lonzo Ball had 36 points and 11 assists. Before tonight, no player in RealGM's summer league database (since 2004) had a 30-10 assist game.

Per @bball_ref , Steph Curry has tied NBA records for games with 8+ 3s (6) and 9+ 3s (2) in a season. It's December 5.

Lillard's 3 was listed at 37 feet.

Pop (and Messina and Udoka) clearly yells to foul starting at about the 19-second mark and LaMarcus Aldridge never seems to notice, despite Bryn Forbes also appearing to yell at him. Then Pop sort of concedes and stops yelling with 11 seconds left. Bizarre sequence.

If an NBA team develops a physical defensive system to contain the Murray State point guard who had a triple-double today, it will of course be known as the Ja Rules.

Russell Westbrook's third quarter: 19 points, 5-9 shooting, 7-8 free throws, 4 steals, 3 assists, 0 turnovers.
