    The same Howard who averaged around 50% more TOs per minute than Rudy?

    The official "let's impeach Trump" thread

    Can we talk about how ridiculously medieval the institution of a presidential(and gubernatorial) pardon is? The idea that the executive branch should have the power to not just interfere with the job of the judicial, but completely overrule them is both an anachronism and a serious violation of...

    Got into a pretty heated debate with my wife last night about race.

    If you cannot turn a heated argument with your wife into some passionate sex, are you even married?

    I think it'd be good to look at actual numbers here. Since breaking out, Rudy's been taking 8 shots a game. Last year he was at 9, and this year he was at 8 again. Mitchell is taking 20 a game. Bojan shoots 15 a game. Hell, Conley shoots 12 a game when you could maybe justify him shooting...

    This is exactly the point I've been trying to make. We don't know if he's that guy, but I'm not liking the vibes this season. And there were similar vibes with Williams and Hayward, but all of us on this board would try to brush them off. You know, he's just a little surly. He's socially...

    I was talking about Williams and Mitchell. And WS skew heavily towards centres.

    Neither of them have had close to the impact on the W/L column that AK had in his prime. Hell, neither of them had his advanced stats from when he was in the dog house. No amount of subjective "eye-tests" can change that. That's not the point, though. The point is that we did everything to...

    Hopefully the front office still remembers the lessons we all learned from the Kirilenko/Williams fiasco. 1. Impact on the game is more important than how many jerseys a player sells. 2. An asshat is an asshat. You could give him the keys to the team, and he'll still leave because he's an...

    Memphis Mike returns

    That, or what little ability he had shown as a Jazz player has now left his body like he's Samson.

    The unrepentant Rudy Gobert support thread

    Again with the championship or bust. The odds of the Jazz winning a championship at any point over the next couple of decades are very small, for reasons I hope I don't need to explain to intelligent adults. I'd much rather be 4-5 seed every year than have a repeat of 2010-2017.

    He was more impactful according to the advanced stats. Hell, his Box +/- in 2004-05 before he got hurt was MVP-level. Even in the late 2000s, his advance stats suggested All-Star-level impact.

    Tough Day To Be In Law Enforcement

    You do realize there are religions out there ordaining women, LGBTQ people, supporting a woman's right to choose, and hold a myriad other progressive views. I mean, the freaking Catholic Church modified the Catholic Catechism 2 years ago to say "the Church teaches, in the light of the Gospel...
