    Nobody told you to watch. You can easily just not watch

    Do you think Harden would come back if we hire Giannis? @Salvy

    KJ on TNT right now. I wonder if Kenny gonna start flapping his gums.

    Shaq told KJ to make his first dunk and KJ looks afraid. and now Kenny trying to stress this poor boy out telling him he will be alone out there.

    i hate kenny.

    Ja is smart. there is no real benefit from the dunk contest now. if you suck, it will be with you forever. if you win, you will be compared to Vince and MJ and all the great dunkers you weren't.

    Watching KJ on TNT, and I am just so impressed with him.You can tell the kid was raised and coached right by his dad. He’s very mature and professional. God knows we need more of that on this team full of knuckleheads

    KJ Martin is my favourite Rocket on the current roster.

    (Player movement?) Generally, that’s positive. We designed this CBA with shorter contracts, with the way FA works, to allow for that. You don’t want your team locked into mediocrity. … You want to find the right balance.

    (Concern about (Bally Sports) situation?) Short term, not all that concerned. If they indeed filed for bankruptcy, there won’t be much regular season left. Long term, not that concerned because there are other ways, other platforms/methods to bring those games to fan. In the mid-term, it’s an issue we’ll have to work through. I’m optimistic we’ll be able to work something out but if not, have a system in place to deliver those games to fans.

    (Load management) The premise of a question of whether players are playing enough, the notion of get out there and play, having been in the league a long time, that’s not the case. The world we use to have of get out there, that’s not appropriate. These are human beings who are playing through enormous pain, all kinds of aches and pains on a regular basis. The suggestion these men should be out there more, I don’t buy into. … Our stars are not missing that many games from resting. … (From ticket sales/renewals) Our fans aren’t suggesting they’re upset and TV ratings are holding up. There are things around the edges we can do. … Right now, fans are telling us they love the NBA and are attending/watching at record levels.

    (Expansion?) No discussions on expansion recently. Because we're in a CBA cycle and national media cycle, view from our governors has been let’s see the new CBA/media deal. No active discussions. We'll turn back to it in a few years.

    I completely forgot how bad the 93 dunk contest participants were. Harold Miner killed it but everyone else was whack. Ceballos gimmick whack ass blindfold dunk and the dee brown eye cover the 2 previous wins. Slam dunk had a lot of misses after epic battles. The nique jordan hangover no one wanted to follow. The vc and jrich epic ones. Dont count the gimmick showman ship Dwight vs nate years of the weak Blake over the hood of a car when everyone got hype thinking he was jumping the whole car...Then Gordon lavine. So it seems theres years of bad dunk contests b4 it picks up again. Tonight is Cedric ceballos with a blindfold type of night.
