    Is ‘Lil Jerry now working north of the border? CLAREMONT, N.H. (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a man at a parking lot outside a Chinese buffet.

    My family insists on going to this mother’s day buffet every year, and looking around that room yesterday, I could do some Costanza/Andrea Doria math about how many bodies were found in the parking lot later :blink:

    Lottery is tomorrow too. Ayton/Bomba!

    Interesting lottery in terms of Philly/Boston. 96% chance of Philly getting a decent (#10 or so) pick from the Lakers, 2.9% chance the Celtics get a great pick, 1.1% chance the Sixers get the #1 pick.

    I count at least 11 guys in the draft who are going to be really good, and its pretty flat. Other than Ayton and Bagley, I think the next 9 are pretty equal. History will almost definitely prove me wrong as it always does, but I think this is an awesome draft.

    As a Friar fan he drove me apeshit, and rooting for him would initially be tough, but Brunson at 27? Especially if they trade Rozier/Larkin signs elsewhere

    So in the extremely remote chance the Pelicans would ship Davis (and why on earth would they?), what’s an actual, reasonable offer that’s still palatable to the Celtics?

    Or maybe it was more like the Celtics pulverizing the Lakers in Game 6 of the ’08 Finals.  Shut the fuck up old man.

    Brunson seems like a good player to me, but my guess is that Stevens would prefer someone bigger.

    On Davis, my guess is Brown / Rozier / Horford / draft pick. I don’t blame people for thinking that is too much for the C’s, but that is at least what it would take. Leaves the Cs with:

    Irving / Hayward / Tatum / Davis / (Baynes or Morris or Theis or Smart or Ojeleye ) . That team is probably the favorite to win the championship. Also, Davis is fucking 25 years old.

    Will I be able to buy weed or bet a 10 team parlay first in Massachusetts?

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada’s monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits.

    Hopefully, Congress will pass something so every state treasurer and AG won’t have to add their two cents making sure they have some say in things, but the pro leagues are already angling to get a ‘fee’ out of it in the name of keeping the games clean.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Pete is all class.  Does a piece on Matt Millen, who is going through heavy chemo and needs a heart transplant, makes this comment about his career move from TV to the Lions

    But he got an offer to become president and GM of the woebegone Lions in 2001 that he couldn’t refuse. Maybe he should have.

    Nice.  Not looking good for the guy making it beyond this year but let’s do a little rearview mirror fingerwag on a career choice that any person who likes a challenge likely would have accepted.  He’s also amazed at ballpark food, an Italian restaurant that serves, get this, Italian beer, and wants you to give credit where credit is due on the release of the North Korean prisoners.

    There’s no plausible way to get Davis without it feeling like passing a kidney stone. I didn’t see before how they could do it without losing both Brown and Tatum, which to me is a nonstarter. But Rozier’s emergence made me think there could be something more palatable,  like the trade Calla suggested.

    I just really want to see Davis vs. Embiid multiple times a year.

    If the Commonwealth were to actually allow betting on sports, the Board is really at a disadvantage not having a dean of sports gambling anymore.  :-(

    I’m still not sure I want any part of Davis’ long term health. If it’s Brown and Horford I’d still probably do it. My preference is to win with their young guys even if the long term title outlook may be less. I’ve seen plenty of championships, I’m good with enjoying it at this point. (Football excepted, of course)

    Did he mention the time Matt called John Morton a fagola.

    This is a pretty good point, since I do not hate the Warriors anyway. If the Warriors continue to dominate and win while playing entertaining ball, then being patient with the C’s is more palatable. But if Lebron goes to Houston with Carmelo, I’ll be looking every 3 seconds to see who Anthony Davis is following on twitter.

    Is LeBron going to gradually be less effective or is he going to fall off a cliff fairly suddenly, anyone have thoughts (way more people here that know way more about basketball than I do).

    And when team president Rod Wood immediately says the franchise backs Patricia “1,000 percent,” what does that say to women who would root for the team? Wood should have said the team would do an exhaustive investigation into the story…

    This story deserves to be known. Not to ruin Patricia’s career by any means, but to simply say this should be a part of the Matt Patricia story, and he deserves to be able to coach because of the disposition of the case.

    More classic Fatty. Tries to appear middle-ground and reasoned, but all the while advocating a path that’s the worst possible for Patricia and his family. Why should this be part of the Patricia story? So are you saying teabagging the trainer and getting PEDs sent to your wife should be part of Peyton’s story?

    You think there’s a chance Carmelo turns down his player option? It’s like 28mil.  I can’t see the Rockets giving him more than vet minimum.

    #124080

    I can’t even process Fatty’s thinking:

    Not to ruin Patricia’s career by any means, but…

    Like this is some fucking justification for what he’s about to write next. He’s so fucking free and easy with everybody else’s lives and reputation.  Just makes me wish he’d get wrongly accused of something highly embarrassing, damaging and hurtful to his family  so we blithely say, “Not to ruin your career by any means, but that really should be part of your story for now and forever.”

    If anybody cares, Boston likely is losing its PGA Tour stop.

    I also saw Pete gave some shout out to Phil Savage, the former Browns GM who was running the Senior Bowl or some such and got canned.  Shame on the Senior Bowl.  Savage of course was the guy that gave Pete access to the Browns draft in ’07 and of course would answer Pete’s calls thereafter no later than the second ring.  He’s so fucking superficial.

    How great would it be tomorrow night if the Lakers ended up with the 2nd or 3rd pick, Automatically sending it to Boston?  It’s under a 3% chance, but it would be amazing.

    It’s really him wanting to know since he is the moral compass for the nation.

    Thank god no one takes him serious.

    Think it is more likely that it turns into an every other or every few, rotating with with NYC, Chicago, Philadelphia for the three playoff events.
