    Re: NBA Post Bubble - Draft & Offseason

    I'm going to try to broker a peace here. Can we all agree that the Thibs Wolves were a mess as were last season's Sixers? There's a reason why both franchises cleaned house. In fact, Jimmy Butler turned out to be the canary in the coal mine in both cases.

Saric didn't take any shots at the organization on the way out. He expressed appreciation. He wasn't disgruntled at all until he got to experience the completely dysfunctional T-Wolves organization.
    It's not quite the same, but I remember guys crying when they were given their orders in the army they were heading to North Dakota for two years.

    I'm not sure what any of that means, has to do with NBA basketball, or why you decided to waste keystrokes on it.

    The Timberwolves have been a joke of a franchise. The Sixers have been completely dysfunctional, save for the time Hinke spent there.

    That'd make sense as North Dakota has no Army bases.

    Either they did in 1980, or it was an Air Force Base, as I was in school with all five branches. Reagan permanently closed a lot of bases in order to reduce the budget.

    North Dakota has two Air Force bases and SoDak has one. The army has decided there is nothing to protect in either state.

    Yeah, no Army bases. Cool story, though.

    Kingspoint's friends still maintain a perimeter around Bismark to this day waiting on their discharge paperwork! (I am only kidding with you.)

    And no COVID-19. With the nation’s highest positivity rate, SoDak has not asked their citizens to adjust to COVID, outside of Brookings, no masks, no staying at home, nothing.

    I think Betterread is trying to trash talk. It's super cute. Sort of like a puppy yipping away at a T-Rex.

    You just want to give him scritches.

    I am not sure what the whole conversation is even about....I just had this image in my head from a slapstick comedy sketch of someone arriving in a location after joining the military and nobody was there.

    In regards to the positivity rate...in my experience, every region has kind of taken it's turn of being the hot spot. The media picks certain states to focus on and make it a huge issue based on an agenda. I recall when Florida and Texas was struggling, every night the media was just taking a hammer to the state political leaders....and at the same time California and a few other places were struggling as bad and worse in some cases, yet they were rarely mentioned. Yes, SD has got his hard lately, but the largest % increase in cases this past week was in New Mexico and Virginia.....yet most of the media do not seem interested in them. It is not that they are lying about South Dakota, it is that the media is focused on it because of a separate agenda.
