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

    Lakers are such a strange, top-heavy team. 538 has them at a 25% chance to win it all, even though they are already in the finals. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-nba-predictions/lakers/ I'd give them a better chance than that, as I don't think their evaluation of Lebron is accurate...

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

    That Lebron continuation layup and then the non-charge call. Wow. Just wow. I really would love a Celtics/Lakers Finals, although its not the most likely outcome. Lakers would have the 2 best players and the Celtics would have next 5 best players. Would be an interesting series.

    2020 NFL: In-season News and Transactions

    Yea, not a very complicated injection but definitely not much room for error. I did a handful in fellowship but don’t do them in my regular practice. A pretty rare thing aside from competitive atheletes. I’m stuck doing the occasional thoracentesis on call otherwise I don’t do anything with a...

    ECF Game 4--STILL MARCUS

    Not sure I really buy this. Overall the Celtics were middle of the pack, but the top players on the team have all shot well on 3s this year. Tatum: 40% Kemba: 38% Jaylen: 38% Hayward: 38% Smart has been respectable at 35% given what else he brings to the table. Honestly I thought end of the...

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    During the draft, I was assured Herro and his alligator arms wouldn't be any good in the NBA. This turn of events makes me sad. I'm curious if Danny would have taken him at #14....

    ECF Game 4--STILL MARCUS

    Definitely, 100% Brad is not getting fired. Our "best 5" offensive group just looked lost on D and couldn't get a rebound. I don't blame Brad for going for it late given we were behind and needed the points, but will be interesting to see how he plays it next time. The obvious thing to do it...

    ECF Game 4--STILL MARCUS

    Unfortunately our best offensive 5 is unable to defend or rebound.

    2020 NFL: In-season News and Transactions

    Any size needle can cause a pneumothorax, honestly there is some luck (or bad luck) involved. This study says 42% pneumothorax and 12% chest tube with lung biopsies. https://www.ajronline.org/doi/10.2214/AJR.09.3224 Honestly that sounds a bit high, I would have guessed 20-25%. Higher risk in...

    76ers 2019-2020

    Yeah, that would really be interesting. Of course in the end it would depend what Simmons/Embiid could get them on the market, but hard to imagine in that situation they can get top dollar. Hard to understand why they would feel D'Antoni is such a prize and want to go down that road. Perhaps...

    They definitely have had an interesting history of team orthopedists, no doubt about it. I'm biased, but they did have the best "team radiologists" when they were in San Diego :).

    2020 NFL: In-season News and Transactions

    Once this "complication" was announced, this was pretty clearly what happened, doesn't come as a surprise at all. This is definitely a known risk of an injection like this, though you would think the best and most experienced doc would be doing a VIP pre-game injection and the risk should be...

    9/20 Pats at Seattle

    That was a very good non-win outcome. Cam looked great.

    Getting Smart with Statistics

    Smart seems destined to be a sub 40% FG shooter and make occasional boneheaded plays towards the end of the games. But given his incredible defense and everything else he does well, he has exceeded all of my expectations. A great pick and now on a very reasonable contract. Early in his career...

    The Heat is on, ECF here we come!

    Hayward was rusty but clearly is a huge upgrade over Semi. He is a good bench by himself with his versatility, plus his skillset is very good against a zone. Our best 5 players are Kemba, Smart, Tatum, Brown and Hayward. It seems like this will be our crunch time lineup, even at the risk of...

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

    I don't know if Theis is an automatic, depending on the matchups.
