Cedi's rolling with the big boys.
Glad to see cedi working with some smaller named guys
Imagine balling against lebron,kd and kawhi lmao
Kawhi's hands are massive...pause.
hahahahaha i love this
Reminds me of this lol
Hornets fans, how bad was Lance?
Charles Barkley: "Money ruins all your relationships. No matter what you do for your family, it's never enough. All your friends think because you're rich, you should bail them out of every situation. The only time I had any peace and quiet was on the basketball court."
"People don't understand what these guys in the African-American community go through," longtime agent Aaron Goodwin says. "It's so hard for them to separate themselves from the people they grew up with. It leads to withdrawal, anxiety. There's guilt about turning their backs on people they care about but who aren't good influences in their lives. There's this pressure of, 'I have to succeed because so many people are counting on me.' And then there's all the people with their hands out because everyone wants money."
Barkley remembers those days well. As a rookie with the Sixers, he felt compelled to assist his family and his boys from Leeds financially. But as the years went on, accommodating everyone who had a hand out became a burden, a distraction -- and a trigger for stress.
"Money ruins all your relationships," Barkley says. "No matter what you do for your family, it's never enough. All your friends think because you're rich, you should bail them out of every situation.
"The only time I had any peace and quiet was on the basketball court."
Mo Money Mo Problems
That wouldnt really work for professional athletes. It takes 5 seconds to google their contract information.
My brother went to a super elite college, and made some very rich friends. Like, 'nine figures' rich. I've met them a few times, and a big part of how they make it work is to simply act like regular people when it comes to money. They don't offer to pay for things, they don't spend more than the people around them spend, they never, ever talk about it. Honestly even once you know, you totally forget how rich they are after spending a bit of time with them. I think that might be the best you can do in their situation.
It's the one thing most rookies are almost never prepared for it seems. You see it every year with rookies (not even just the top lottery picks) going out and buying like a 4 million dollar car house, a car, and a house for their parents, and just like that nearly half their money's gone and they haven't even hit summer league yet.
I know the league has like 1 or 2 (I think mandatory) pre-draft classes/talks you have to sit through from former NBA players talking about money and how they blew it and financial advisors and whatnot, but honestly I doubt any of that works as intended.
Yep I mean nothing really to argue against here
Who would have thought even 2 years ago that Rudy Gay will become the most vocal player of the Spurs.
After all these years, it's really good (and actually surprising) for him to find an organization to embrace like that.
This is why the argument that Kawhi for DeMar has weakened the Spurs is so idiotic. Compared to last season, they didn't trade Kawhi for DeMar, they traded nothing for DeMar.
This year's Spurs team is going to be damn good, and anyone who's surprised by that in December is a fool. Don't get me wrong, the West is all about the Warriors and Rockets - but I wouldn't be the least bit shocked to see the Spurs finish 3rd.
I would be absolutely stunned to see them miss the playoffs.
The only thing I would argue with is that he says they were a couple games back from the 3 seed, but doesn't mention that they were only a game ahead of the 9 seed. I do think they will get in this year, but I don't think it's ridiculous to think otherwise. At least 2 good teams will miss the playoffs in the West.
[OC] Inspired by r/colorizedhistory, I have colourised some black and white photos of my favourite NBA legends of all time.
bro how did you do this you fucking nailed it
This is the kind of quality OC I want when I come here
Damn, you got me excited.
This pic looks like a meme lmao
lmfao this cant be real
this the hardest pic i've ever seen
What, you've never seen the giant flying Magic Johnson head hovering over half court during Lakers games? It's been doing that since at least 2012... when the media asked Magic, he claimed he knew nothing about it, but I don't believe him.
The brain is an organ. A fucking complex one even by biological standards, but an organ. The more this is accepted in society and we acknowledge some of the more difficult implications of this, the better off we will be.
Lol the brain is a complex organ and basically runs things so denying your own mental health issues is your brain just having a massive ego. Shoutout to my own brain for realizing its flaws and having the courage to speak out about it
Incoming dumb comments making fun of Dan Gilbert without acknowledging his positive tweet
Brain gotta poop.
Please don’t neglect the brain.
Let’s fucking go!
Maybe he can speak Kawhinese
Toronto really pulling out all the stops for Kawhi. First they hired his friend and now they got him a personal butler
Don't really know why we're going in for him, we already have 4 point guards on the roster
he should do what his dad says. you mustn't disobey your father. you must do what father says
Your apparent daddy issues.
Do you need to talk to someone?
There's going to be a lot of teams on ESPN.
Does USA Today actually have a "LeBron wire" lol
He's right. But it's not like Lonzo wasn't shat on every game he played. It'll be funny to see him not really react to it the same way.
The man has a point
