Colin Cowherd suggested Zion refuse to play in the NBA this year and go back to Duke because he shouldn't waste his career in New Orleans. Is he on crack? The guy had a huge wake up call with his injury that he needs to stop playing for free and start playing for millions of dollars as soon as possible. Yeah, it would suck to be on a bad team, but at the end of the day you need to be making as much money as possible because an athlete never knows when their career is going to end. And anyway, would playing for the Knicks as he apparently wanted be that much better? That team has been a dumpster fire and then you get to have New York sports media telling you how bad you suck every day if you have a losing season.

My heart goes out to him because I ruptured my Achilles tendon 3 years ago and it was extremely painful. I still have some pain from it. So he's not going to be having a fun time in physical therapy, let me tell you.

Yea that sucks. KD is going to be out for the entirety of next season.

For yourself, you could have this which is why you're still getting pain unfortunately
If the tendon becomes swollen or irritated due to overuse, it can lead to the painful condition called Achilles tendonitis. If Achilles tendonitis goes untreated, it can become a chronic (ongoing) condition that makes just walking around almost impossible. Achilles tendonitis is a very common running injury.

This guy does a parody account of an NBA reporter where he posts silly stuff. Yesterday he tweeted this about James Harden and Chris Paul

And Fox Sports reported it as fact this morning. :rofl:

In addition to the story just being ridiculous, his avatar is clearly of that guy from those drug rehab commercials they show a million times on cable TV.



And who read the story? Professional Dumbshit Skip Bayless of course. Bossman, I know you're fortunate enough not to have to see Skip in your country. So imagine a dumber Piers Morgan who is a sports show host and that's Skip Bayless.

NBA Twitter is the best Twitter.

Yea I know of Skip, think he's been on some sports coverage we get on ESPN before. But those tweets...getting pink eye :rofl2: how could he think they were legit. There is legit beef between CP3 and The Beard and I hear that Harden did a "him or me" type speech to Rockets management. So its likely one or the other will get moved (likely Chris I think). If CP3 goes to the Lakers then that's s solid base you could have with Bron and Anthony Davis.

The Jazz have brought in Mike Conley and Ricky Rubio has posted a thank you Utah tweet so he's apparently on the move. Seems that the Pacers have interest and he'd be a good pick up.

NBA draft will no doubt bring about some interesting trades too. Zion to the Pelicans seems a lock as #1 pick.
