    Yam on the Madar Screen: C's 2020 pick #47 in Tel-Aviv

    If they sign him, is he on the 1986 payscale? Could they do one of these Van Exel deals?

    Gordon Hayward 2020: I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!

    Do they last one calendar year or one NBA year? That is, given the compressed schedule, is a TPE worth more right now than it would be normally, because it lasts a few months into the next season?

    2020 NFL: Wk.4 Game Thread

    What I mean is, if the rules now state that you pull the ball to an exact yard marker on first down except with goal to go, you should never need to bring out the chains.

    2020 NFL: Wk.4 Game Thread

    Can anybody explain to me why the NFL measures for first downs still?

    Best Of All Worlds, Everybody Wins

    Given the draft pick, shouldn't this thread have been called "don't let us win tonight"?

    How does that affect the Sept. 1 tax rollover?

    Milwaukee Bucks boycott Game 5 vs Orlando

    The key difference between this and most labor disputes is that what the players are asking for isn't something that management has the power to provide. The players aren't asking for more money, or different working conditions, or anything like that. They're trying to effect societal change...

    Milwaukee Bucks boycott Game 5 vs Orlando

    This isn't an NBA issue, it's a societal one. There isn't anything Adam Silver can do that's going to stop police officers from murdering black men. And the players have seen that despite using their microphone to send messages of social justice, those messages aren't working right now. I...

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    I did, thanks. Not a good typo...

    Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air homophobic epithet

    Yeah, this reminds me of the academic departments who suddenly discover that a well-known, senior researcher has been sexually harassing their students for the past decade or two. That doesn't happen without your colleagues knowing it, and so it doesn't happen in a department which is otherwise...

    Memphis Grizzlies 2019-2020

    I'm really not convinced this is going to be a weak draft. There are a lot of prospects who would have been really helped by the tournament(s) and where the evaluation is now a lot more uncertain. Pretty much everybody who should have declared did, it's just that we didn't get as much of a...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA to resume season July 31 at WDW

    The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced the NBA really missed an opportunity here. Why not take advantage of this to place their bubble somewhere outside of the US, ideally in a market they'd like to grow? Europe offers several great locations in markets where the NBA is already...

    2020 MLB Draft Thread

    I think it has a lot to do with how teams have been treating minor leaguers. Since everybody is making the same bid financially, I'd expect the Royals to do a lot better than, say, the Angels. Seems like the Sox have been at least above average as far as how they're treating their minor...

    Betts/Price to LA for Verdugo/Jeter Downs/TBA

    I really liked the original trade from a baseball point of view. I understand wanting to watch Mookie play the remainder of his career in Boston, but it's precisely this sort of thinking which has led to the contracts which put us in this situation. The likelihood of Mookie significantly...

    2019 NFL Week 16 Game Thread

    Are they reviewing whether to call the OPI on Gallup pushing off to initiate the contact?
