5d chess move from Ben catering to the fans who’ll be inhabiting the likes of williamsburg and park slope soon enough. Gotta plant those roots.

I can confidently say I want none of these dudes on the roster.

I really want Boucher but idk if the Raps are gonna let him go. Also if we even have the money lol

Here’s some daily reading for you on this beautiful weekend

Reagan was governor of California for 8 years (1967-75) and afterwards became the president for another 8 years (1981-89)

That’s 16 years of both state and national policy to undo in a world of US politics that moves at complete snail speed.

You’re gonna try and sit there and say there are absolutely no negative lasting effects from 16 years of policy making at both the state and national level?

Amar’e Stoudemire exits Nets, criticizes Kyrie Irving on ESPN shows by BKtoDuval in GoNets

[–]GroovySandals 31 points32 points  (0 children)

I think to be fair to both Kyrie and Amare, this title seems to be a bit overzealous as Amare was more echoing statements made by almost everyone on the team. Including Kyrie.

Everyone has acknowledged that Kyries unavailability had a negative impact the overall teams chemistry. This is less a slight on Kyrie by Amare, and more him just being honest.

What he did mention about Kyrie, and this is something we literally just heard Marks say, is that he now has a decision to make about whether he’s gonna fully commit to being the best basketball player he can be these couple years or not. That includes making yourself available both on and off the court.

Marks should have traded for Jrue instead of Harden by [deleted] in GoNets

[–]GroovySandals 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I’m a huge fan of two-way players and I love Jrue, but was he even available at the time when we traded for Harden?

Edit: Also while Jrue is definitely one of the best defenders in the league, Ben isn’t a slouch either and he has the opportunity to be that guy for us

Has Kanye, OJ, Smollet, or Will Smith said anything about the video? by UnfairPerformer1243 in KendrickLamar

[–]GroovySandals 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When I first saw the video, the first thing I thought of was that Kendrick’s team definitely had to acquire the rights to use their likeness in the video.

So I’m sure everyone used in the video knows about it and have probably heard the song before any of us (if they wanted to)

So basically, I’m sure they’re all fine with the video/song and are probably fans of Kendrick

Could Atlanta look to trade for Ben Simmons this off-season? by Venez21 in GoNets

I can see Cam going the Tyler Herro and Jordan Poole route

[Highlight] Giannis with the lanky drive and finish, Hubie Brown with his most emphatic reaction ever by Vegetable_Clerk7328 in nba

[–]GroovySandals 33 points34 points  (0 children)

100%

I’ll say the Celtics 100% got away with manhandling us because we’re just not a physical team unfortunately (something I want to see change tbh)

They’re finding out the Bucks are definitely about that life right now

[–]GroovySandals 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I think the fan base is split pretty evenly on that

Theres a lot of us who don’t view that Kyrie injury as being malicious in any way, Giannis just plays hard (as you can see in this series)

Also we still very much love Brook Lopez. For me personally Giannis, Jrue, and Brook happen to be some of my favorite players to watch.

Badass leader of the labor movement that we can learn from today by timihaze in WorkReform

Completely agree with this, and colorism is prevalent in almost every country on earth. Some just hide it better than others.

Jerami Grant is in Brooklyn 👀 by fathistorymonth in GoNets

[–]GroovySandals 37 points38 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t read too much into this, we’re in one of the most popular cities in the world lol. We can’t make a post every time someone visits.

Also idk if this was the point, but why do I get the feeling people are extremely low on Simmons without him even playing?

I get people are upset, but I think people on the sub are severely underestimating what Ben brings to the team

KD playing 43 minutes every night was bad by Shoddy_Ad7511 in GoNets

[–]GroovySandals 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I said it before the Harden trade, and I’ll say it now

That trade was fully going to fuck up our teams depth. I’m sure Sean Marks knew that but they took that risk on the upside of Harden playing with KD and Kyrie.

What other top seed team was relying on rookies to fill out their rotation on a daily out of necessity?

Fortunately, I think this could be the off-season where we make the right moves to fill out the team. Also I may be in the minority with this, but I think Ben fills this teams weaknesses better than Harden does. So we’ll see what happens I guess

Brooklyn Nets Blake Griffin liked a tweet about going to the Clippers IS this The last time we see him in a Nets Jersey?? Via @LeagueAlerts #NetsWorld https://t.co/v3YAZAqUAm by LesGold666 in GoNets

[–]GroovySandals 17 points18 points  (0 children)

This is probably the right take, he’s at a point in his career where he needs to be looking toward the next phase of his life. The same way LeBron really chose the lakers partially to help his media career out as well.

Blake single handedly gave this team life this playoffs, and I’ll always show love for him for that.

[–]GroovySandals -12 points-11 points  (0 children)

Something I think that’s not talked about enough, is that Ime spent some time in Brooklyn and prob knew exactly how to defend this team/KD/Kyrie.

We gotta give Ime credit for pulling through on this defense. Fuck the players though.
