I guess I just found your comment to be not extremely bright.
That's fair.

This Oubre story is rather bizarre.  Police say there's no evidence of a hit and run.  That said why would anyone make this up?

Agreed.  I was just thinking how stupid his reaction was.

Hearing many teams are scouting Bulls games. The Bucks should put together a shopping list.

With all the assets and decent sized salary they have available to trade.

I honestly don't know the Bucks situation.  I wouldn't give up hope; the Bulls front office isn't exactly a bunch of Jerry Wests.

ESPN's studio NBA people are bad.  And by bad I mean a total abomination.  Give TNT every game.

I'm not saying I'm always right when projecting NBA guys, but I do remember being dumbfounded that Ball and Fultz were universally regarded as better prospects than De'Aaron Fox.  I couldn't figure that one out at all.

Fox is a score first PG who isn't a great distributor and still doesn't have a reliable outside shot.  He plays for a great team for a skill set like his, but if he wasn't on a team averaging 120 points a game, he would be a 16/3/3 sort of player with bad shooting splits.  There is a reason he hasn't been an All Star.

Ball got unfairly judged because of his father, so unless he was a mega star from the jump he had haters cackling...and he also got tossed into a bad situation in LA with Lebron arriving.  Then the injuries.  His last season in NO he put up 15/6/5 and shot nearly 40% from deep after reworking his shot, plus he's a very good defender.  If not for injuries, he was on the cusp of being an elite PG, not combo/scoring guard, but a true PG who could also score when needed.

I didn't see that the police said "no evidence" just that there's "no video or photographic evidence that depicts this collision". Unless I'm misunderstanding, all that might mean is that the accident occurred in place not captured by security/traffic cameras. I'm not familiar with the area so I don't know how many blind spots there are.

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

You're right that its about video evidence but there has been insinuations that have begun about him making up the story entirely it appears.

Ive barely paid attention to the story but looking at it, does seem pretty bizarre that there is already some belief he might be making it up completely and also why he would do that.

If he's walking into his apartment with a bike, maybe he got hurt on his bike and there's something in his contract on injuries from certain things.

Was surprised to see a dominating Bucks team last night. Was surprised to see that their record's 8-4.

Given some of the talk here, I thought they were gonna be something like 3-8 and look horrendous.

Like the Hornets.

Can we glean anything from the Hornets getting pummeled?

Nope. It's 12 games into the season, and a team like the Milwaukee has an entirely new dynamic to figure out. It's too early to glean anything from anything.

(Actually, we can pretty confidently glean that the Hornets are still the Hornets - overpaying for lots, contending for zippo.)

A year ago, you had proclaimed the Celtics to be the next superteam. They weren't. Maybe they still can be. Maybe not.

A dozen or so games are in the books for each team. The season still has forever to go.
