Wait...its not just Mr. Bill. Looks like its one of those email chain columns with other clowns that presumably make 35K a year for The Ringer.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

I hope those writers can afford an occasional Olive Garden outing.

That 35k line made me laugh more than presumably anything in the article could.

ETA: yup.

The comments are great.

Knowing if a white prospect’s dad announced that his sons team had lost in the sweet 16 because the black players got too flashy and turned the ball over too much, Alison Herman and Justin charity would clutch their pearls so hard they would strangle themselves?


LOL

Seriously. Knock it off.

Mike Blank wrote:Says the guy who, earlier in this article, freaked out over a “250/750/900 club” that he completely and arbitrarily made up on the spot.


We should recruit this Mike Blank to SOTSG.

OK Brian.

This season, though? A complete and total turnaround. Harden is all of a sudden one of the four best basketball players on the planet again. New coach Mike D’Antoni has them scoring 215 points a game. Literally every single meaningful statistic by which you would measure how good or bad a basketball team is has improved over last season. I wonder what the difference is. I wonder what the missing 6-foot-11, 265-pound difference is.

It is entirely Dwight Howard's fault that Mike D'Antoni wasn't the coach last year, that they didn't have Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson raining threes, and that Howard's bad juju caused James Harden to suck, as he only registered career highs in points, rebounds and assists while maintaining the same efficiency numbers as the previous season. Harden's inability to play defense and terrible conditioning were also Dwight Howard's fault, because he's a big meanie who interfered with the proper functioning of the universe by leading the Orlando Magic to victory over the Basketball Christ Sox in the 2009 Eastern Conference Semifinals.
