    The NBA Preseason is already underway to little fanfare. The big season storyline seems to be when and how the league will force 100% vaxx compliance on a few reluctant superstars. The NBA has required all team and arena staff and personnel to be vaxxed without exception, but the players technically have the option to decline, wear masks at all times, get daily nose swabs, and sequester themselves throughout the season. Golden State, Brooklyn, and New York have "local ordinances" in place preventing unvaxxed players from entering their arenas. Andrew Wiggins succumbed to the threat of losing half his salary and took the shot recently. Washington's Bradley Beal is an all-star level talent who is also publicly refusing. Jonathan Isaac of Orlando has made some headlines with his eloquent opposition to mandates.

    The biggest name though is Kyrie Irving, an eccentric loudmouth who has had no qualms about acting in his own self-interest in the past. Yesterday, the Nets owner Joe Tsai (AliBaba billionaire born in Taiwan, raised in Canada, educated in the USA, and Hong Kong-Canadian dual citizen) declared through mouthpiece GM Sean Marks that Kyrie would not be allowed to join the team as a "part time player." He will be forced to get the vaxx (for his health), sit out the year (and beyond), or potentially be traded away from the superteam he founded. The Wiggins precedent means the Nets don't have to pay Irving for their home games, but it's unclear if they are liable for his salary for the road games from which he will be purposefully excluded. Meanwhile, sports journalists have taken these arbitrary league rules and conferred the qualities of both Science and Morality onto them. They will use their podiums to sway public pressure against Irving and any other holdouts. Not unrelated: the black community in NYC is currently only about 28% fully-vaxxed.

    Lest we forget, our CF Rookie of the Year candidates are Oklahoma City's Josh Giddey, Washington's Franz Wagner, and Orlando's Corey Kispert. We'll also keep an eye on Luka Garza's minutes in Detroit and see if Wokemaster Popovich gives Joe Weiskamp any playing time in San Antonio.

    Thanks for the start up Phall! I watched the videos of Beal and Issac dismantle the cuck sportswriters on YouTube. Good stuff. I wish they would start playing the race card on this Vax issue, Blacks do it on everything else. Maybe those guys are to proud to do it but I’m sure Irving isn’t. I respect him for making a stand though.

    I hope Irving holds out. I'm assuming he'll still be getting a large portion of his contract. Make the manager eat crow and pay him to sit.

    Also thanks for that last paragraph! Some young talent to follow for sure In those rookies.

    I stand with anyone of any race that doesn't want this poison. It's also about World Control Commie Style. I hope no one else caves into the pressure.

    I'm excited to see alot of these young guys play. I'm just pissed about the teams they went to. McClung to the Lakers. Weiskamp to the Spurs with their
    Commie Coach who hated Christopher Columbus and all whites. Garza on the Pistons. I think OKC for Giddey and Kispert on Orlando are the best fit and
    they should actually get to play alot and maybe blossom into stars over times. The other guys I'm not so sure. They have the talent but are on bad teams.

    Mac McClung was waived officially by the Lakers today. He signed with their G League team on a non-exclusive deal that (I believe) lets him sign with any other team that wants him at any time. Each team gets a pair of "two-way contracts" to offer G League players to maintain exclusive rights, but Los Angeles didn't value him enough to extend one of those.

    Austin Reaves, however, signed a full NBA contract with the Lakers to fill out their roster. He'll be their only white player to start the season.

    Glad to know Reaves signed a full contract. Him and McClung would likely not be "allowed" to both be up and coming young Whites with talent and flare on the Lakers. I believe the reason to be Lebron and his very fragile, paranoid ego, even at this late stage of his career. I've always viewed him as not really among the greats with a killer instinct. Yes, he's great but his greatness is overhyped and he can't have any young bucks threaten his limelight ego at all. Especially young Whites. Just my 2 cents.

    The NBA Season is gonna start soon. Tonight in the Heat vs Celtics Game Tyler Herro went off for 29 pts. With Dragic being on the Raptors now it's only Robinson and Herro now for Miami. What a difference from a year or two ago. I also hate how they bring Herro off the bench.

    It's really sad that Garza, Weiskamp, and a few others are getting almost no minutes even in post season. Garza was the NCAA Mens Player of the year yet he sits. Weiskamp is
    athletic as they come and the best shooter in the draft yet he sits. Man I get so angry at what they do to our guys. McClung already on a training league level. What a joke!

    On a good note the Cleveland Cavs may be a team to watch more this year. They now have Lauri Markkenen, Cedric Osman, Dean Wade, Ricky Rubio, Kevin Pangos, Mitch Ballock,
    Kyle Guy, Dylan Windler and Kevin Love. We will see what the opening day roster looks like
    but that's alot of our guys. Hard to believe but I'm liking it! :)

    The Warriors beat the Lakers tonight. Other than Nemanja Bejelica scoring 15 pts & 11 reb, the Warriors have nothing to root for. Nico Manion is not even on their roster. This
    is another guy with an incredible amount of talent but our guys always go to the wrong teams. Hope he resurfaces somewhere soon.

    In the other game the Bucks won in a blowout. Grayson Allen started at the point guard and he had 10 pts, 6 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals. It was an off shooting
    not but he does a little bit of everything. Would love to see him be the starter all year long but I won't hold my breath. Pat Connaughton scored 20 pts off the bench!

    I did some digging and found out about Nico Mannion. He has already signed to play pro ball in Italy after having a serious healthy problem. The sad thing
    is that Italy has lost it's rights. The country is in full gestapo mode. Hope it goes good for the kid. Yet another stud white all star potential guard that the NBA
    doesn't want or need. This happens to so many of our guys. It just makes me sick. I will post the link to the info about Nico Mannion.

    Good debut for Allen(28mins) and Connaughton(30mins)!

    *Also Bucks have already extended Allen for 2yr 20mil! Good sign for him, look like he's found an NBA Home. Downfall, Bucks secured him as Donte D has been a bit injury prone and he is in his last year under contract. I'm hoping Bucks have enough minutes to go around for all 3 Gym Rats. Bucks have a Legit chance to repeat.

    Nico signed a two year contract this past August to play in Italy. He’s a dual citizen and has been able to play for the Italian national team already. No sense wasting time kickstarting a long and prosperous international career when your alternative is being “lonely whitey” on the end of the bench for a team that won’t play you.

    I hope he torches team USA in the Olympics! Damn Steve Kerr is such a cuck! I loved him back in his playing days with the bulls but it’s hard to believe he couldn’t find a spot for this kid who was one of the top highschool recruits in the country.

    One team to watch this year to see them slowly develop will be the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have 6 of our guys on their roster. What excites me the most is
    the potential for the future for 3 young guys they drafted this year. These guys if they continue to develop could be the foundation of a winning team over the next
    decade or so if the coach and team believe in them. I know the point guard is a lock to become a star but I want to see all 3 guys make it and get used to the chemisty
    from playing together over the coming years. These are the 3 young studs to watch closely.

    19 year old Point Guard Josh Giddey
    19 year old Power Forward Aleksej Pokusevski
    20 year old Small Forward Vit Krejci

    The other players to watch are Ty Jerome(24), Mike Muscala(30) and Gabriel Deck(26).

    So it's a very young team with guys that have alot of potential. Watch Josh Giddey closely. The kid has so much talent and he is a teenager!

    The Miami Heat are so dumb. First off they let go of several of our guys. Second they continue to bring Tyler Herro off the bench. They start Gabe Vincent
    at the point guard position. Vincent is in his 2nd year and he is a below average player. He is averaging 7 pts, 2 rebounds and 2 assists on the year so far.
    Meanwhile Tyler Herro off the bench is averaging 27 pts, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Yes the season is very early but in tonights game it's the same nonsense.
    Very late in the 3rd quarter tonight, Vincent has 2 pts, 2 rebounds and 1 assist. Meanwhile Herro has 20 pts and 4 rebounds off the bench. It's almost like
    they want to hold down Herro on purpose. They tried all summer to trade him. He is an all star talent but the Miami Heat treat him like a bum. The only bum
    is the starting pg Vincent. I'm sure he is a nice guy but he is not a starting point guard. I don't even see him being a backup point guard. As always in America
    nothing makes sense in the sports world, political world or in the media.

    So how did this game finish stats wise for these two players you ask?

    Starter: Gabe Vincent 2 pts, 3 ast, 3 reb, 3 turnovers!
    Scrub Bench Player: Tyler Herro 30 pts, 10 rebounds.

    Ok I guess I was wrong. Gabe Vincent is a true super star in the making. Lmao. Glad the Heat lost. Anyone can see this kid cannot play.

    Well despite Heat under utilizing him.Its great to see Herro back and dropping buckets! Obviously agree that The Heat need to buy in and make him a focal point of the team!

    Connaughton has 8pts and 6reb. Allen has 10pts and 4reb for Bucks with a quarter to go.

    McDermott has 14pts and Jacob Poeltl has 11 for Spurs.

    Good to see the Mavs win up in Canada on the road against the Toronto Raptors. Never an easy play to play but Dallas pulled it out after a slow start.

    Luka Doncic 27 points, 12 assists, 9 rebounds and 1 blocked shot. One assist away from another triple double.
    Kristapps Porzingis 18 points, 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 4 blocked shots!

    We are seeing alot more white point guards making a huge comeback now. It's about time as white guys can always shoot, pass and lead teams as good as anyone.

    We all know about 22 year old Stud PG Luka Doncic.
    Then you have 21 year old PG Tyler Herro who is averaging around 30 pts a game currently off the bench.
    TJ McConnell is another stud off the bench for the Pacers who would be better if they started him.
    Goran Dragic has been dominant for a long time now as his career is almost over.

    Now we have 19 year old rookie phenom Josh Giddey. Tonight he had 19 pts, 8 reb, 7 assists and 4 steals!

    If you guys get a chance try to watch the Orlando Magic when you have time. They have the two Wagner Brothers, Franz and Mo. Franz starts and Mo Wagner
    comes off the bench as a rookie. Mo Wagner did a poster dunk tonight right over Toppin. Talk about in your face with authority! It was so sweet! Mo finished with
    8 pts, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in only 14 minutes. Both of the Wagner Brothers can really ball out. Fun to watch and they also have Brazdeokis!
