    Because every day is a day to watch how gorgeous Chinese girls are on beam:
  2. Amanda Kloots wrote a book about Nick Cordero's ordeal with covid.
  3. Yeah I feel like that's unusual to hear among celebs. But sometimes two people don't have much in common and that's fine.
  4. And in Day of Our Skating Partners, Bruno unfollowed Aljona on instagram.
  5. In today's fun and light gossip: Lara Rhoades calls KD boring after what sounds like a bad date. This I can actually believe. It's playoff time for the Nets and athletes are laser-focused. They spend their off days watching film of their games and practicing. They live, breathe and eat basketball. With that being said, still not very nice to bag on a date.

    Joel Embiid is someone who started off with an okayish stat (78% his rookie year) and has gotten better every year. But some people just struggle. Like Lebron is getting worse. By the way Shaq tells the story of how his free throw woes started: This Jazz/Clippers game is fun. Reggie Jackson is singlehandedly keeping the Clippers within shooting distance.

    Yeah you kind of wonder if it's a mental thing at this point. I notice the elite free throw shooters seem to have a very short, perfunctory warmup before they shoot. Giannis has the long hold, the slow dribbles, another hold, then (usually) a clanked free throw. Also weird who struggles with free throws and who doesn't. Like why do Joel Embiid or Nikola Jokic have no trouble with FT's but Ben Simmons and Luka struggle?
  8. Dare I say it -- Joy has seemed happier since Smuggar got arrested. It's sad when you have a predator in the family and the only way to make sure he's not around is when he's arrested/in jail.

    Yeah, they were saying KD had maybe his worst game in a long time. And he had 30 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists. I still think Nets in 5 or 6. Bucks if they're lucky can eek out another win but I don't see them winning another 3. Giannis appears to be a wonderful, kind, humble young man but damn if he doesn't have the worst shot selection ever. Bricking one jumper after another. Getting called for a 10 second violation at the line. This is stuff that should not be happening to a two-time MVP. Like everyone has bad games but I do notice that the elite players of the league have

    That was a night of fugly basketball. I usually don't believe the rumors of point shaving but games like this I almost believe it, because it's as if neither team wanted to win. The 86-83 score is one that would have embarrassed the 1990's Knicks. On the Bucks reddit there was a lot of talk about whether some of the Bucks might have been throwing the game because they want Bud fired and perhaps a different offensive scheme.
  11. I know in my head that it's ridiculous, but it was still upsetting to find out from my supervisor that this was happening. Talk about being blindsided.
  12. Ok I got a fresh pet peeve. I had a rough day. This teacher I work with told me that discussing the covid vaccine was "bullying." She said she felt "bullied" by a discussion I was having with a student about getting our shots. Which brings me to a pet peeve: the misuse of the word "bullying." I feel like bullying is intentional cruelty, and I was shocked that a light convo I had with a student was construed as "bullying." The teacher said that I was not considering her extremely anti-vax beliefs and for me to casually talk about getting my shots with students was "excluding" her and she

    I don't see the Sixers beating the Nets. They can take it to 6 games or maybe even 7 but their entire offense runs through Joel Embiid and to a lesser extent Tobias Harris. We've seen how if scoring goes through one person, that team can be shut down with more aggressive playoff defense. See: the Blazers, Mavs, and Bucks.

    I think Joel is fun to watch but his whininess towards the refs is a real turn-off. Lebron James and Luka Doncic are the same way. They're all big guys and this is playoff basketball -- they can expect to be defended very aggressively. Matisse Thybulle's defense is great but I feel like in order to become a starter OR to get more minutes he's going to need to develop better offense. Part of the job of any second unit is to score dependably when the starters are resting.

    I've actually heard a few "Joel Embiid is an asshole" stories but I have no idea how true they are. His relationship with Ben Simmons supposedly is not good.
