    Yes. Sorry if that was unclear. Just meant as a follow-up.

    2020 is cray-cray....when thing start to resemble some normalcy, it will return better ratings..

    Not a fan of the plantation analogy either, but Bill Russell made $100k per year at his peak.

    About 600K a year in todayís money. If the fans donít start watching the NBA - we may see those salaries again.

    Here's an article trying to explain the decline in NBA ratings, and ratings for all other TV sports as well:

    I am wondering if people watched so much TV during the initial months of the pandemic that they just got sick of it, and the warm weather allowed them to be outside more?

    Frank Jackson and Jahlil Okafor are on survival in NBA list. Danger of new players dooming opportunities.
    Giles,Hood, Plumlee, & Rivers are all in this interesting chart.

    Frank feels like an undervalued asset who will shine once he gets some PT. I think he'd be better served on the open market finding a situation where he has a more realistic shot at regular playing time. On his pod with Grayson, they both mentioned Frank Jackson as someone who is a really unique and funny, perhaps a bit eccentric, but that brings a lot of a team and a locker room. I have a feeling that he's due for a break out once he gets some burn.

    Maybe not the right thread but congrats to Austin and his upcoming baby boy! (I think he has one boy already).

    Gender reveal video below (and no it's not a dangerous pyrotechnics or anything, just a ball that he dunks and changes color):
