Counterpoint: Sarver, at least to this distant third-party observer, appears to fully support the Mercury. As long as that continues, I personally have a hard time having much empathy for the Suns.

As far as I know, Sarver doesn’t do jack shit for the Mercury.  He sits in with the Suns GM to the point where other execs here him on the phone.

He can get away with being cheap with Mercury because the whole league is massively underpaid and he landed the GOAT Taurasi - but even missed a year of her in her prime because she got paid to stay exclusive to Russia or whatever for a year.

The Pels had tried to trade Mirotic and extras for Butler. That would have been dumb.

I read that some other teams offered packages for Butler like Miami proposing Dragic, Justise Winslow, and a draft pick and a different package of Josh Richardson and a first rounder. The Rockets went with Four first round picks, Brandon Knight, and Marquess Chriss and a different package of Eric Gordon, Nene, and two first rounders.

I'll take your word for it. When the spectrum of owners in the WNBA usually ranges from the owners who love their teams, and would spend more if they could, but can barely afford to keep the doors open (e.g., Mary Brock and Kelly Loeffler in Atlanta, Force 10 LLC in Seattle), and the ones who have the money but appear to be playing defense against their own franchise (e.g. James Dolan with New York),a billionaire owner who does the bare minimum is enough.

Carmelo’s reps are working on a new landing spot for him.  Where?  If he couldn’t make Houston work, I honestly cannot think of a spot that makes sense at this point.

Caris LeVert stretched out tonight in what was called a "gruesome leg injury"

Not looking for that footage but awful to hear on so many levels

Sixers and Heat reportedly interested.  Not sure why the Sixers would add him or how his role would be better there

As an aside, apparently LeVert only managed to dislocate his foot. It might've looked way worse, but the guy literally has a rabbit's foot, because he'll be back after some rehab.

Like seriously, I thought he was hurt a lot worse than a dislocation.

I don't even... Come on Dray.

I have zero doubts guys have been in his ear saying shit about KD leaving for ages but when Dray finally went off they were among the first to back KD and act like Dray was betraying team unity. The stuff Dray pulled in the game was dumb as fuck but I don't think the fine and suspension is going to help at all.

Rondo has a broken hand

This means 4 things.

1. Lonzo gets to play a lot more which is great.

2. Ingram will play more on the second unit handling the ball.

3. Lance will also handle the ball more, which is fun if not effective.

4. KCP gets back in the rotation and gets to play more.


Rondo getting hurt isn't the kind of injury that would really harm the team. If LeBron, Kuzma, one of our two centers, or Ingram go down, that's when we'd be fucked.

I know it's still pretty early, but going into Thanksgiving the Western Conference looks really weird. Memphis is at the number 1 seed with The Clippers tied for the third seed and Golden State in the fifth seed. It will probably even out as the season goes, but Golden State looks like a team that will get eliminated in the second round at this point. Their bench is really weak, it's obvious the core group is starting to get tired of playing together, and Draymond is having a terrible year offensively so far.

Maybe it was a string of bad luck but Noah just seemed like someone who had nothing left.  Haven’t seen much of Memphis this year so I have no idea of where he fits in here.  I’d say at this point, if he had any flashes of his old game, he’d need to go to a team in the vein of Utah or Boston where he could just add some spark for 10 minutes off the bench - but neither of those teams has a spot for him.  Those GRIT N GRIND Memphis fans will like him if there is any juice left in him.

The West standings are nuts right now.  Memphis is actually tied for first with the Clippers (!) and Thunder (remember when they were 0-4 to start the year?), but the Lakers are in 7th only a game back.  Utah is 14th only 4.5 games back.  It’s pretty much impossible to call the West right now.  The only teams I would for sure count out of the playoffs right now are the Suns and T-Wolves.

I don't really think the Wolves are completely out of it either. They are like 5-2 since Butler was traded and the team does have more depth with Covington/Saric even if Thibs will still only go 8 deep.

Contrast that with the East where a bunch of teams already seem completely out of the playoff picture. No chance the Cavs, Hawks, Bulls, Wizards, or Knicks make it. And, I don't have a lot of faith in the Magic or Nets to stay in the hunt.

https://hiphopwired.com/playlist/dwight-howard-allegedly-outed-by-gay-ex-boyfriend-twitter-is-in-shambles/item/3

This is going to be a story soon. I think it will be interesting because the NBA is known to be the most progressive sports league in North America; that said Dwight Howard is probably the most hated player by the public and by peers. And a lot of people that are going after Dwight Howard for liking transgenders are just as bad as Howard and his "pastor" going after Masin Ejile "allegedly".

Read that the accuser has been caught falsely accusing and scamming people in the past

But supposedly there are also recordings calling Howard a “6’11 Bottom” which would make a pretty sweet username
