[Henderson] The Dallas Mavericks are now 14-22 in games within five points either way with five minutes left on the clock. by Grand FloridianKagsTheOneAndOnly in nba

This is just variance. If a team have a 50% chance 36 times to win, they expect to win 18 games give or take 3 games. Usual “error bounds” would be +- 6 games.

If you want to be exact, probability of 14 or worse in 36 is 12.1%, hardly strong evidence that they are worse than 50% win rate in these situations.

"Offensively, we were just trying to find whoever James Harden was guarding. That’s who we thought we had an opportunity to score on.”

We're gonna hear reports of Suns staff breaking the bubble because they must have snuck off to Lowe's or Home Depot to get us a bench.

Do you think maybe someone else can step up on the china human rights thing? Everyone seems to be real busy fighting racial injustice in America right now.

I love this statement. You know when the alt right projects their biggest concerns, they are the individuals consistently doing the dirty deed. Cancel culture is a big theme right now in politics that seems to be leveraged by religious, and white conservatives. The sad irony is, most Americans have little, to no education about oppression tactics against minorities in America's history.

Native Americans lived so far away on reservations in the 19th century, the state and federal government would force them to walk on foot to the nearest county building to pay their land taxes. Well, the taxes were always due in the winter, making the task more difficult. Also, European Indian officials would come around tax time and persuade the tribes to pay their taxes with silver dollars and also offer whiskey. This was all planned out so the tribes would get drunk, spend the silver on more alcohol, and neglect to pay their land taxes. Therefore, the government would swoop in, take their land, rinse and repeat.

I doubt 99% of public schools in America teach these type of stories. Thus..

...Cancel Culture

This is why these protests are so important. Some folks only want to point at one thing and tear down what these protests have set out to accomplish. George Floyd never could have known in those final 8 minutes and 46 seconds of his life what his death would signify, and the outrage that would result from it. While I wish he was still here instead, his death is not, and has not been in vain and to see this kind of acknowledgement, not just from someone like Pop, but so many others. Millions across the globe. I love to see it.

Everything. Literally, hundreds of books, thousands of research articles, tens of thousands of think pieces and popular news articles detail how the history of this nation still impacts the lives of black people in America. One has to be willfully ignorant in this day and age to not know this stuff or where to find the information. Start with the book “The New Jim Crow” as maybe an entry point.

As a Mavs fan I absolutely detest the San Antonio Spurs. However, you will never hear a negative word out of my mouth about Gregg Popovich. He's one of my favorite Americans.

Once again, the Raptors media team absolutely nails the feeling of excitement for the new season but also the struggle that has been 2020 with their new video "Stand Up For Something" by LebronKingJames in nba

I don't agree with you. If one person is capable of not being racist, then everyone is.

Racism exists today and will exist tomorrow because racism existed yesterday. Racism is a learned behavior taught due to poor upbringing, or an unfortunate environmental situation or both among other reasons. Racism will exist in our lifetime and our children's, probably and their's too, but eventually I believe humans as a whole are capable of eliminating it from our society. It's going to take changing minds and children not latching on to all they learn as a child, but it will happen eventually.

From an evolutionary standpoint, strong traits tend to stay while weak traits tend to disappear over time. Racism is a weak trait, and will be weeded out. As bleak as things seem in the U.S. and other countries, future generations will always be just a little bit brighter than the last

Paul George: “I applaud Jonathan Isaac for his stance & his beliefs, he’s not wrong. Nobody’s wrong, I think what’s so great about it is that everyone has a voice in this situation” by WarriorsBalls_of_Adamanthium in nba

I’ve written extensively on the BLM and it’s deep segregsting roots from the political machine to incorporate and force black police, fire stations and banks inside or segregated sub cities inside communities. That is exactly the opposite of what my mother was bussed across town in Birmingham for so that she could be forced to integrate into a white school. I am not looking to go backwards and reform segregation. Feel free to search my history I have long posts over the political aspects of BLM. The grassroot movements are great the highly paid for and politicized BLM is not what my mother and father suffered through the civil rights movement in the Deep South is this country for.

As for Brees he comes from a military family, I’ve never met a military family white or black who would ever be ok with kneeling. He is absolutely allowed to have his belief, it’s not different that Johnathon Isaac did, the difference is that Brees is white and Isaac is black. Let’s ignore the millions and millions of dollars Brees has given to the Black community of New Orleans.

The way Brees was treated was disgusting and it’s 100% because he was a white man saying it. Let’s not play dumb here and make any other argument.

[Post Game Thread] Toronto Raptors (47-18) defeat Los Angeles Lakers (50-15) by 107 - 92 with 33 points coming from Kyle Lowry by [GSW] Stephen CurryNyhrox in nba

[–]WarriorsKlay_Bongson 732 points733 points  (0 children)

Kyle Lowry is not a basketball player that only obtains field goals through spot up shooting from beyond the arc. His shot selection is not only restricted to open field goal attempts from the corner as a result of his offball movement, bitch. His game does not resemble that of JJ Redick, but rather that of Stephen Curry while at the same time being a god human being. However, unlike Stephen Curry, Kyle Lowry is not considered a pussy. An example of this is evident through his multitasking ability where he is able to attempt a field goal from half court while engaging in fisticuffs with his opponents.
