    If you want to say that we can, as people on the ground working within a movement, pressure Dems in ways we cannot pressure republicans to take certain steps, cool, i getcha - i might even agree depending on the day. If you think that Dems have an actual underlying coherent, ideological project they are committed towards working on that is in line with what someone on the left wants, that’s baby brained.

    How I met your mother and Friends hold a special place in my heart as the two shows I don't think I've ever laughed at. The reverence most people have is perplexing.

    I decided to take the following teams as a short list and do a playoff on 2k switching between the two teams each game of every series to determine which team I will support. It should be fun! The first game was a nail-biter, I went up big with the Bulls, and the Grizzlies fought back to win it in the final seconds by two points! Grizzlies 76ers Cavs Nuggets Timberwolves Suns Hawks Bulls

    Yes they are! I’ve been going to games since ‘96 when I was 8 years old. The team has rarely been relevant since 04 but have had a few fun young teams that for one reason or another have never quite panned out. I’m very excited about the group they have at the moment. They should be great offensively next year, but Terrible defensively, which will ultimately be their downfall

    i just kinda think profit is the unpaid wages of labor ya know? and if you have a billion or so that's a lot of unpaid wages and maybe that's unethical, i dunno?

    Ahhh yes the Jets effect, I know that feeling intimately I will check them out! Are they your team? Any specific reasons for teams that are up high and down low on your list? And why the frown faces?

    If you are a glutton for team misery, I’d like to introduce you to the Minnesota Basketball Timberwolves! pros based on your criteria: -lots of community outreach especially after George Floyd’s death which happened locally and Covid-19 (Karl Anthony-Towns mom died of COVID in April) -young team that was completely overhauled mid season and potential to be very fun cons: No UNC guys

    I tagged him in the Politics thread so we can focus on how bad the Kings are to help Zach not ruin his NBA fandom before it happens [MEDIA] This broke my heart this morning, still have a Chris Webber figurine from when I was ten in my living room :'(

    Their players are very talented, and most of them hate each other and have contradictory skillsets so it's a fun mixture of potential and calamity.

    Ballmer giving away his wealth is like me giving away twenty bucks, you gotta look at the percentage to put it in perspective, all he does is nothing next to what he hoards. If he really wanted to give away his wealth he'd no longer be a billionaire. So he's a huge piece of shit. Along with most of the other owners. Teams should be owned by the players and ex-players tbh.

    No good billionaires, all pieces of shit But there aren't non-billionaire owners I don't think, so that's kind of fucked EDIT: There are a few, Spurs the most class conscious franchise confirmed? Vivek Ranadivé, Sacramento Kings: $700 million Jeanie Buss, Los Angeles Lakers: $500 million Wyc Grousbeck, Boston Celtics: $400 million Clay Bennett, Oklahoma City Thunder: $400 million Robert Sarver, Phoenix Suns: $400 million Peter Holt, San Antonio Spurs: $200 million

    the community outreach part is tough bc pretty much every team does “something,” and it’s difficult to tell which ones do it as bare minimum gestures and which actually care. they’re all corporations run by billionaires. looking for activism in the league, while it’s better than other leagues, is going to just leave you disappointed. as for young teams with exciting players, i’d go memphis, dallas, new orleans or atlanta. all have “stars” that will be big in the league for a while, some have multiple.

    Want to try to get more into the NBA. I fell out of touch with it and NCAA since I stopped playing organized basketball like ten years ago. Trying to figure out some younger teams with players with solid community outreach and who speak out on current events and stuff like that to choose from. I was born in NC, so UNC has always been my college team (I don’t pay attention anymore really though), so maybe some recent players from there fit the bill? Any help in finding those guys/teams would be great! I’m a NY Jets fan, so I’m not afraid of a losing team/perpetual misery.

    moved in with my partner and her 1+ year old cat a couple months ago. first time livin with a kitty. i used to be somewhat allergic but she hasn’t been bothering me. we’re already talking about getting a kitten so her crazy ass has someone to play with even if we’re out. she can be a handful when she wants attention/is feeling neglected (guess that’s kind of a tortoiseshell thing in general?) but i love her [ATTACH]
