Wow. Crazy. I fly Delta. I like em. Nothing they could have done in this situation though. Good job by the pilot and bad job by Chicago to not clear the airport area of birds.

They’re supposed to take preventive measures for this.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Thanks for posting.

Although some of those may be deceiving. As all numbers are.
Frank happened to play his first game and 20 minutes during a blow out win.

Watching a lot of games on NBA league pass and IMHO...

Markkanen numbers are accurately showing his impact and level of play. He has played very well.
Kuzma is by far the biggest surprise, so far. Turning out to be a really good 27 pick.
Simmons is probably the best on the list but plays for you know who.
Donavan Mitchell probably the best true first year player thus far.
Fultz has been a a bit of a disappointment but is not healthy.
Very surprised at Tatum's +/-. Watching Boston he seems to be a spark plug for them and playing well.
Good to see Collins up there. Was a fan of trading down our pick for Collins and Mitchell.

Interesting stuff.

Melo Haters = Lin lovers who are mad Houston paid so much for his 15 Minutes,

Jax wanted Markkanen as a KP replacement.

Simmons is doing great. Mitchell is also doing fantastic, but has a lower ceiling.

Like that Frank keeps his hands up on Defense. Counts for a lot.

A bird would make a big dent like that? surprised. More likely falling frozen urine block from a plane passing over head.

Greek Freak who? Cousins putting up early MVP numbers...40 & 20 vs the Kings and follows that up with a triple double the Cavs...

Cousins is averaging 32 14 & 6...WOW!

I feel for OK4...Dude came into camp in great shape, ready to contribute and you're telling me he cant earn at least 15 mins off the bench? BS! How are you going to trade and and ask for a 1st round pick and he cant even crack your everyday line up?! For Ok4 sake, I hope he lands on his feet with an organization that knows how to utilize his skill set.

they probably have bird detection tech or something like that built in when flying at the peak height. but this used to be a bigger concern back in the day. the speed at which a plane moves anything flying in the opposite direction will have serious impact to both. even if something like a bird is seen at a distance while flying, by the time the pilot has seen it it is already too late to divert the plane. that's how fast it happens from what i have read.

I think this was part of the Philly "process." Accumulate talent regardless of need or position with the thought that they could trade these "valuable" assets for a major haul in return. So what exactly did they get in return for Noel and what exactly are they expecting to get for Okafor?

Eric Musselman is/was a D League coach. He used to be head coach of the Warriors. He's been cited as instrumental in helping a lot of former D League guys get their skills up and mindset right in terms of being useful NBA players.

One thing he's noted as discussing with his players is your "window of opportunity" could be several games. Could be half a season. Could be half a game. Could be a couple of minutes. He points out actual players who have only played in the NBA for MINUTES. That's it. Their entire career is summed up in a few scant plays and a few forgettable moments.

Okafor took his situation for granted. Sure he's working harder now, but he should have worked that hard before.

Yes, Philly had a situation where his window was "short" but Okafor has no one to blame but himself. When your chances comes, you need to just explode through and take it. Dwayne Wade spent time talking about "loyalty" when he could not get the contract he wanted from the Heat and signed with the Bulls. Wade could have put in the hard work to develop an actual three point shot for the back half of his career. He could have tried on defense. He could have lost the 15-25 pounds he needed to to get quicker and help with injuries and making playing back to backs possible. He didn't. No one to blame but himself.

Players really need to see the handwriting on the wall. Bigs and rim protection is not as scarce as it used to be. If you want to get minutes, you better be able to defend the rim AND space the floor. If you can't, you better work like hell to try to get there.

Since you came on this board you have been way off in regards to trade value. - Briggs 7/28/2015

They didn't look good tonight. Sacramento looks even worse. I don't think we have the horsepower or artillery to beat the kings in a tank fight. Fox continues to impress tho.

As usual the media fawns over them, oblivious to the fact they are trash- I have never understood the media's love of the nets ever since their owner bought the team- he's been as bad as Dolan in many ways

The Jeremy Lin injury was devastating for them. They built the team around Lin and Russell attacking game. Dinwiddie is trying but he just doesn't have the same driving skills that Lin has.

They are a team you can get behind. I have no hate for them. Kg and PP is gone. Williams is gone. No Billy King. I love their head coach. The team plays hard but they are young. Not many skill players. Just a ton of roll guys. Reminds me of the old teams that played on channel 9 back in the 90s. I can't lie, I be following them and generally want them to do well.... but not when they are playing the Knicks!

You know why I'm here....

Same here. They don't have a player I dislike. They have a lot ex-Knicks too.
