    What's the beef DWade has now? One of his kids isn't getting enough playing time at Sierra Canyon? Son told me Wade went on at length during latest episode of Inside the NBA.

    Seems like D is all over the place lately. But the Daddy Ball schtick doesn't fit very well. Was hoping that was a one-of-a-kind outfit.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Pistons were Streaking

    I understand the decision to suspend play, and support it fully - it brought the issue into sharp focus for many people who were failing to appreciate the dangers of the pandemic.

    HOWEVER, I can't help but be bummed at the timing of it all. The Pistons had unloaded virtually every player without long-term potential are were STREAKING up the charts toward a high lottery pick! They are currently at #5 from the top of the lottery list and only 1 1/2 games away from #2! AND THEY WERE 1-9 IN THEIR LAST 10 GAMES.

    Man! What could have been. smh

Covid-19 has been the news for a couple of months now, and I have yet to see a single person carry around wipes in public to wipe down door handles and knobs when opening doors. Like I said, throw the first stone if you're not touching things when you leave the house. (Or I suppose if you've sequestered yourself).
    I don't carry around wipes, but I don't touch anything if I can help it. Open doors with a shirtsleeve or napkin, not my bare hands. Even better if the door is outgoing - I push it with my elbow or butt. If the bathroom has a paper towel dispenser with a handle to push to get a towel, I do that before I wash my hands. If the sink doesn't have a no-touch spout, I close the faucet with my elbow, not my hand.

    None of this is really new - I've always done it this way.

    I feel your pain?

    What's the deal with Luke Kennard? Tendinitis doesn't usually keep a player out this long. Have the Pistons kept him out to improve their draft status?

    Both where I live and work, the staff is coming through and wiping doors, counters and office phones down. People are bringing latex gloves with them so they can touch things without fear, otherwise I have seen people purell their hands after opening doors. I found that joke completely distasteful and if the reporters enjoyed it, then shame on them too.
