Timmy, is that you? TIMMY! COME BACK TO ME!

I wish they were my dads. It helps that my mom thinks David Robinson is very handsome.

Who doesn't think that though

Pop: Tim Duncan is not walking through that door, fans. David Robinson is not walking through that door, and Matt Bonner is not walking through that door. And if you expect them to walk through that door, they're going to be gray and old.

LMA: Fuck.

[Road Trippin] Isaiah Thomas: "I'm not trippin on the trade. I mean I got traded to the Cavs and we're gonna win the championship. At the end of the day, I'm gonna be ok with that."

From the latest Road Trippin podcast.

He clarified that he was mostly upset that Ainge never gave him any kind of heads up or warning.

Channing Frye talked about how the Magic GM gave him a few days warning that they were exploring trades, let him know the potential possibilities, and told him that they were gonna do what they thought was best for the Magic. IT chimed in: "See that's all I'm asking for".

RJ said he also had a talk with Koby Altman, telling Koby that he wished Koby would have had more conversations with him. A couple weeks ago, RJ's agent and Koby had a chat and Koby was up front about it so RJ knew it was coming. BUT... RJ felt like Koby should've kept him up to date as the weeks went on. Instead, they never spoke face to face until the trade was done.

But if you tell IT you're exploring trades and then one doesn't materialize then that's really awkward......

Yeah, RJ brought that up and they talked about how GM's are afraid because what if it doesn't go through.

(RJ also gave the example of Pop when he was in SAS. Pop gave him a heads up about a potential trade and said "if it doesn't happen we'll get on a plane in a couple hours and you'll be with us the rest of the year and an important part of the team. If it does happen, you won't be on the road trip." Pop risked that awkwardness, and RJ said he thinks that the frustration from not being given the courtesy of a warning is way worse than the potential awkwardness of when something doesn't go through)

I mean, Ainge told Ray Allen he was going to be traded, then the trade fell through, and it was one of the factors that led to him signing in Miami in the offseason. Here he had a similar situation and he overcompensated in the other direction, like when someone misses long on their first foul shot and then front-rims the second.

He lied to himself three different times in three sentences.

LeBron James: I think Dan Gilbert’s letter was racial

He is so clearly planting the seeds for leaving, Windedhorse is out there working for him aswell. All to pave the door for bolting and suffering minimal PR damage as possible.

Am I the only one who thinks this is maybe a reach? They liken Gilbert being mad about Lebron leaving to slavery...

I'm sure it has absolutely nothing to do with how you blew off the team all off season and wouldn't take calls, and then televised your departure and made it one of the biggest spectacles in sports...

Sorry Joel, but playing 31 games in 3 years is also bullshit, so maybe it's a good idea to take it easy until you can prove otherwise.

I had a convo with my kids & let them know this is how it's going to be

I grew up in Scarsdale, NY (also one of the nicer neighborhoods in America) and the same kind of shit happened to me there. The idea that ugly racism is the domain of mostly poor folks is deliberate misinformation.

For better or worse, my parents always made it clear to me that as hard as I tried, I'd never be as American as I wanted to be. The couple of years have been pretty tragic affirmation of that.

The fact that this is your first instinct is very troubling all together

Happy Opening Night!

I'm starting my sixth season writing about the NBA on ESPN.com, primarily for ESPN Insider. On Monday, we published on Insider 2017-18 projections using ESPN's real plus-minus and my minutes estimates.

I'll also be part of ESPN's new NBA podcast, The Hoop Collective, which merges contributors from both NBA Lockdown and The Basketball Analogy.

I'm a longterm /sub/nba lurker and excited for my first AMA starting at 1 p.m. Eastern. I've missed the live chat experience since we stopped doing my chat on ESPN.com. What's on your mind?

Are there times when you look at the analytics and just think man this team/guy definitely can't be defined by numbers?

Hi, Kevin!

I’ve got a question unrelated to basketball. I’m currently in my first year majoring in journalism. Is there any tips that you would be able to give that could help me right now, or in the long run for starting a career in journalism?

Thanks!

Do you have access to the RPM formula and if so, can you share it?

Over the years, basketball metrics have improved a ton, with numbers such as RPM and Trtg expanding our knowledge about how winning basketball can be measured and predicted beyond the traditional box score. What kind of numbers do you think the basketball stat community could provide us with next, and what questions are the next to be solved?
