Yes. Trotting out the tired old sports-writer's trope of "BUT THE TICKET PRICES!!!" is so much better.

Thanks, officer. 👮

Congrats to Giannis on helping lead Greece to their first appearance as a basketball team in the Olympics since 2008.

NBA MVP, NBA Champ and now an Olympian.

Greece shoulda traded his azz to another country.

Not sure how I feel about Ant's comments and his role on the Olympic team.

while having his own extramarital affair?

Oh wait, no, that was Ken Starr. I get the Baylor faux Christians mixed up.

There were two women on the planet that wanted to sleep with Ken Starr?

Probably a way too early question, but I'll ask anyway. Who is going to be a bigger bust: Filipowski or Bronny?

I just read that.  By all accounts he's the real deal.

IMO, Bronny can't be a bust. Based upon draft position and, more importantly, the overwhelming opinion of his game, he can only be a pleasant surprise if he is in the NBA after his dad retires.

Define bust.  This was a weak draft and the majority of guys drafted end up being “busts”.

Right. While there are obvious outliers, second round picks will usually hang in the league for a few seasons then head elsewhere to ply their trade. I expect Bronny and Filipowski would be within that bell-curve.

3 years guaranteed. Quite the hype from all of the media outlets. If he doesn't play any meaningful minutes, I would consider that a bust.
Filpowski had  2 years ? of eligibility left. If he doesn't stick, I would consider that a bust.

Yea, I don't think either would be a "bust" regardless of NBA career.  That being said, last night aside, I'm gonna bet on the 7 footer who can shoot from deep and who averaged 17/8/3 on an E8 team over the very undersized shooting guard who is actually a WORSE shooter than Filipowski.

Most second-rounders are getting contracts in that range.

The hype is only because of the existence of his pops; I haven't read many accounts hyping up his game.

Just about any second-rounder who actually becomes a long-term solid player is going against the norm. So I would hesitate to define Bronny not working out as a "bust."

The Bucks took Chris Livingston with the 58th pick last year and gave him a 4 year, $7.6MM contract.  And he's not the son of one of the two best players to ever play the game, and his father wasn't a free agent the Bucks were hoping to keep on their team.

I'm sure the Buss family greatly appreciates how concerned some Scoopers are over how they're spending their spare change.
