    That pass that Steph gave to Giannis was a very cool looking play. Also, I am glad to see Dirk smiling and enjoying himself at this All-Star Game. It was a nice that Adam Silver allowed him and Dwyane Wade to be apart of this game as honorary All-Star players.

    Super Bowl LIII: The Live Chat Topic

    Disappointed that the Rams lost and that the Patriots won this Super Bowl. This is the most boring Super Bowl I've seen.

    According to reports the 49ers fear that Jimmy Garappolo has torn his ACL and his MCL. They will know more about his condition tomorrow once he gets an MRI on his knee. I hate to hear this type of news, especially so early in the season. I wish Jimmy a healthy recovery.

    I think that we have had some interesting and entertaining games so far today. The Saints/Falcons is a nice competitive game. I am also glad that the Panthers won. Cam did a nice job. Also, Patrick Mahomes continues to do an excellent job for the Chiefs. He is a very impressive young QB.. Josh Allen also played well today in the most surprising game of the week so far. I don't think very many people predicted the Bills to dominate the Vikings today but they did. They did a really good job of stifling the Vikings offense. The Colts also ended up doing something surprising by letting Jacoby Brissett throw the Hail Mary at the end of the game against the Eagles. It looks like they weren't trusting Andrew Luck to try and make that throw. And the Texans and Raiders are in trouble, with their 0-3 starts. I had some reservations when Jon Gruden was announced as HC for the Raiders and was given that really big contract. Also, I hope that Jimmy Garappolo injury isn't very serious, though he looked sad when he was being carted away.

    I am glad that the Browns won tonight. Baker looked really good. He has great energy and is very entertaining to watch. I hope they have success this year. It would be nice for them and their fans.

    I thought that the Bears/Packers ended up being a good game. I am glad that Aaron Rodgers wasn't seriously injured and was able to come back. He was very impressive as usual. Khalil Mack played very well, especially in the first half. He is a very nice addition to the Bears. I had wanted the Bears to win, but Aaron Rodgers ended up being too much for them and Mitchell Trubisky got nervous in the 2nd half, especially towards the end of the game. Hopefully, he will continue to grow and show improvement as a QB. I saw some growth in him tonight.

    I thought that the Browns/Steelers was an entertaining game that resulted in a wacky tie ending. I thought that the Browns defense played very well and the Browns should have won that game, but the offense was stale in the first half and didn't do enough to help them get the win. I thought that Tyrod was playing too conservative and missed a lot of throws. (Though he did take more chances in the 2nd half). At least they didn't lose, but hopefully they will continue to improve and gets wins this year.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski on twitter, OKC has traded Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Dennis Schroeder and Mike Muscala. Melo will be waived by the Hawks so he can sign with whatever team he wants to.

    I agree with you. The league is not that competitive right now and I find that unfortunate. Even worse that the dominating team (The Warriors) is a team I can't. Even with some of the other dynasties, other teams had an opportunity to win and keep things competitive. Right now we don't really have that and it's given us really bad playoff and final series. There are people that definitely DO care about this. Granted,, there are some that don't, like people that love the Warrior/hate LeBron and decide to bandwagon on the Warriors as a result. Or people that have bad teams that never are going to go anywhere (like bad East Coast teams) and don't care, people that like domination etc... Also, according, to reporters from ESPN and other sources, the Raptors are finalizing a deal to get Kawhi Leonard from the Spurs. The trade package for him would include sending DeMar DeRozan to the Spurs. It sounds like neither DeMar nor Kawhi are that enthusiastic about this trade.

    I wish Melo the best. Unfortunately overall he just didn't play that well with the Thunder last year. This move will save them a lot of money on a very high payroll. I wonder which team he will go to next.

    It looks they did free up more cap space by buying out Dwight. I wonder how he will fare with the Wizards. He's been on a lot of teams and hasn't really fared well with most of them.

    According to reports like Yahoo sports Dwight Howard has accepted a buyout from the Nets and will sign with the Washington Wizards at the MLE for one year.

    The rich get richer. I wonder if one of the reasons that Boogie decided to sign with the Warriors (not only because it's a much easier path to a ring) is because he was upset that teams like the Lakers/Pelicans didn't make more of an effort to sign him. So he just went "Heck with it, might as well sign with the Warriors and get a ring".

    OKC has signed Nerlens Noel to a two year contract, with a player option for the 2nd year: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/23978552/nerlens-noel-oklahoma-city-thunder-agree-deal ETA: There are also reports now that Rondo has signed with the Lakers as well.

    As a Pacers fan, I have always really liked Lance Stephenson. I like his energy and believe that he has always played his best basketball in a Pacers jersey. He hasn't fared very well on other teams. It will be interesting to see how he fares playing alongside LeBron. He actually could have played with LeBron last year, as he was brought in by the Cavs (along with some other players) for a tryout. I think that LeBron actually respects Lance.
