    This is where I believe in all major sports in the US having relegation like in soccer overseas.

    If there is ever a team in need of relegation, it’s the Clips. (Throw in the Jets while you’re at it).

    They've been relegated to the undercard on Xmas, so they did get a lil smack on the hand for Clippering. But you're right, for this tampering charge, a heavy fine isn't enough for moneybags Ballmer, so I can get behind relegation for 2021 + one trade veto. Send'em to the G league

    Fat Harden reporting for duty. Lmao He's added Miami and Milwaukee to his list of preferred spots...how you know he doesn't give a shit about anything at all. Does he not remember Giannis repeatedly passing over him in the all-star pick'em? Giannis literally said he doesn't pass. Harden doesn't know any of this stuff though..never happened. Also doubt Riles is about to deal with Harden's BS in Miami

    Harden coming to the realization that pretty much nobody cares about his trade request. He's less than Iverson. At least Iverson gave everything he had. Philly would probably like to get him but why would Houston want Simmons when they have Wall? Gotta be a 3 team deal. And the only team that needs to gamble on Harden is - Philly. They have to make all that tanking count for something..even if it's just entertainment and hype

    Harden’s game just doesn’t fit into the other NBA teams as currently constituted. He would just disrupt everything with his ball domination and foul points strategy.

    Even if he gets to a team, that team will have to give up a lot, and they’ll end up having to replicate the Houston system, with no chance at a chip.

    And now he looks fat and out of shape, partying it up in Vegas and Houston, and looking more desperate for a trade.

    He is his own worst enemy right now.

    Johnny Wilkes wants his $2.5M for delivering Kawhi too

    West better hop to it. Times must be hard for him to be working for the Clips, or even working at all at 83 yrs old, but that ain't Wilkes' fault. Pay that man expeditiously, Antonio Brown....I mean Jerry West Lol

    Clips should have paid him just to keep his mouth shut. Now the Clips have much bigger problems on their hands. If this guy used bribes, promised Leonard and or his family anything, acted like an agent when he isn’t one, or reached out to the Clips during the season....the Clips are going to be in trouble no matter whether the case goes forward or is thrown out.

    Leonard is the gift that keeps on giving.

    guess i'm the only one who doesn't think this is a big deal
    West is way too smart to leave a paper trail so it comes down to he said/he said w a guy trying to get paid
    he told him he'd take him out to dinner after talking some smack about the team that he has hard feelings toward
    if these guys had agreed to a pay0ut the cash would be in his pocket
    so if that's the best they've got the accused can easily say nothing to see here

    You’re right in that it’s he said/he said. But if there are written communications, which it looks like there are, what’s in those communications and when they were sent will be important.

    And yes, this is probably not criminal or a tort, but the NBA has an explicit rule against intermediaries influencing free agency. So it may still be an NBA violation.

    Remember, Magic and the Lakers were fined more than once for less if an infraction.

    a fine, no big deal
    jerry west probably did way worse back before the hand check was outlawed and GM could really throw blows.

    Can't say I'd be shocked if there were a fuck up or 2 somewhere. It is the Clippers after all. And West is 83. To be frank, I'll never just assume an 80+ yr old knows what they're doing at any moment in the day

    That said, West is currently catching as much hell for his " shit show " comments. Twitter will pull your resume in a heartbeat. Fans teasing him for being 1-8 in the Finals Lol Best part is he'll never even know

    He's a small forward.
    I play him at SF in 2k with dwight and javale up front and Lebron at pg and Kuzma at sg.
    I get all the rebounds and own the paint.

    Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma has agreed to a three-year, $40M contract extension, including a player option on 2023-2024 season, sources tell ESPN.








    Safe to say Laker kids get to the bag.

    In the calendar year of 2020, playoffs and preseason included, Anthony Davis is shooting 40% from the 3pt line. 69 makes on 170 attempts since January 1st.

    Anthony Marshon Larry Bird Davis Jr.
