    Russ' in game speed is +100, If you look at his shots he usually strong arms them... that's his in game adrenaline. So if it sacrifices his C2C Speed I want No 3 Shooting Russ alllll day.

    Russell Westbrook really pushes those 3 pointers, instead of a rainbow arc with spiral rotation on the ball.

    Eric Gordon, Mclemore, Tucker, House all have rotation with spiral on the ball.

    And Houston’s underground network of sophisticated hackers re-opened it...oh wait...that’s total fiction.

    Who needs instagram when sick stalkers and paparazzi are taking pictures of you all day anyways. Surprised there isn't a picture of James shaving his pubes or taking a sh!t.

    Agreed. Social media is a toxic place where bitter and unsuccessful people can vent.

    Some employers check to see if you have a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc and if you don't they think there is something wrong with you

    Maybe you actually get outside and live life in the real world and refuse to low key brag about every little thing you did or bought solely for social media brags - not bc you wanted to actually do that or buy this.

    Employers: Meh, they're just looking for a reason not to hire you or a reason to terminate based on socially irresponsible social media posts that are incongruent with their corporate culture.

    Instagram used to be a site for photographers (professional or amateur hobbyists). People would share their work and enjoy others. Used to go to there to see some dope photography. Then the 'social media' portion took over and became a bastardized version of itself. The downfall includes Thots from around the globe posting their bums or self-proclaimed foodies taking pictures of average looking meals. And Facebook bought it because of the popularity threatened its own.

    For these reasons I personally avoid it now, ... BUT. I'm not mad at companies or sports celebrities use it because those folks have a brand. IG is just their way to connect with the audience / fans / potential customers. For some; it's more 'work' than personal use. Plus it is in grained with the younger generation so it's normal they have an account. For some NBA players; it's also hook-up culture. If Harden's cutting IG to reduce social media clutter from his life, good for him. Or maybe with recent stuff going on; he just want to disconnect, keep pieces of himself just to him, instead of the public take take take. Hopefully it's for good reasons and not bad ones.

    This was never its business plan. It was always an upload-your-phone-pictures for amateurs app.

    It was a smartphone app from Day 1. Launched 2010 exclusively on iPhone (iOS).

    primary biz plan was to leverage ppl taking selfies and wanting an instant (hence, Instagram) and easy way to post them hassle free of links and file upload sites, etc.

    Planned or not, it also leveraged the existing phenomenon of sites like reddit doing image-only requirements threads. There was significant proof and precedence for “every post must contain an image” strategy. ppl love “every post” requirements like that.

    My sushi pictures on Instagram are on fleek. No one should miss the fleekiness.

    Harden has really been playing great team ball since he deleted his Instagram. He is focused
