Nice one.

Captain Hate

I was on local sports talk today (the FM one 92 the fan; not that ESPN AM crew of idiots) mentioning that Kyrie and his agent plus whatever hangers on he has were probably overly influenced by the ESPN/ABC pre game shows with guys like Jalen Rose, Chauncey Billups and moron Wilbon making statements that Kyrie was a legit MVP candidate and I was thinking "you guys need to STFU". First of all, Kyrie is a very exciting player to watch with his ability to get to the basket and finish with either hand but there's no way he's as complete of a player as Westbrook, Leonard, Durant or LeBron no matter what those knobs say. Kyrie is like a 1b or 2 player compared to the 1a elites. The Cavs were still a lottery team before LeBron returned with Kyrie running the show. Also Kyrie, product of Dook, is as dumb as a brick and could easily be led astray. After all, he believed the earth is flat.

Local reporter Terry Pluto, said that an anonymous GM claimed that the Cavs should be able to anally rape another team for Kyrie because he's under contract for two more years PLUS an option year in the era of exploding salary caps. I just don't know what team is dumb enough to do that. Not the Spurs. Maybe the T-Wolves and we'll get Wiggins back.

Oh and getting Rose for a year is a good move. LeBron has proven with JR Smith that he can turn talented malcontents into productive players like MJ did with Rodman.

Some strange unearthly power is commanding me to relink this absolutely hilarious [but kinda sad] guy TBT uses as a source. Barack & Michelle Reveal Reptilian "Baggage" at London Airport

Now the unenlightened might think that means they were carrying their own alligator, snake or lizard skin briefcases, but you would be wrong.
There is actually something even more unlikely than either of those entitled dilettantes deigning to tote their own luggage.
No, what he means is...well, let's have him explain;

The etheric image seen below, which is centered over her [Michelle O's] right kneecap, appears to be a single entity when viewed at the smaller magnification seen on the left, but when enlarged and contrast enhanced, it reveals itself to be more than one image. Most manifestaton of reptilian entities tend to show 'entities within entities'. The "eye" of one entity will seem to share the same "eye" of another entity, for example...The crop [of the photo] seen below marked A4 is taken from the outer portion of the right leg from just below the kneecap to about the mid-shin area. The image looks very faint and barely discernable in the above full right leg photo, but will reveal itself in greater detail when magnified and adjusted for enhanced contrast, brightness, color saturation, or shifts in hue. I drew a white separator line between the upper and lower images and then further contrast enhanced each image so you could more easily recognize the details in each. The upper image, A4A, seems to show two entities, one looking to its left and the other purple-ish looking entity looking right, in almost full profile. The lower entity seems to have teeth and a major goiter problem in its left eye.

How off their nut does someone have to be to see and believe things my son, with full blown schizophrenia, would think was absolutely crackers?

From Barbara's 01:51

Amazon won a $600 million cloud computer contract from the CIA. That was the difference – more than the difference.

Later that year, Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post for $250 million.

To put that another way, Bezos used less than half the money he got from the CIA to buy the Washington Post.

Do you think that was a sweetheart deal?

Posted by: Captain Hate | July 25, 2017 at 12:24 AM

Ummmmmm . . . Captain, I know you probably have some negative Detroit BadBoy memories and some negative Michael Jordan memories but . . . I don't think Dennis Rodman should be linked for comparison purposes to J.R. Smith. Rodman didn't come to the Bulls as a reclamation type, Rodman was *the* elite defensive player in the Association IIRC.

My curiosity on Kyrie is this: is he really trying to leave Cleveland? Or is he trying to prompt a move, in concert with the owner, for LeBron to accept a trade so Cleveland gets building blocks that will allow the Cavs to try and duplicate the move-the-ball offense of Golden State where *he* (Kyrie) is Steph Curry.

That would be a smart play by Cleveland if they could pull it off. Put LeBron in a box, paint him as the guy standing in the way of the franchise having a future *AFTER* LeBron leaves.

This makes it shit or get off the pot time for LeBron to commit to staying. Otherwise, at some point this coming season the franchise makes it publicly untenable for "I want to be loved" LeBron to sit his happy decisionmaking behind in Ohio twiddling his thumbs.

Remember, the Cavs have until February 2018 to effectuate a trade. It's a wild scenario but the Cavs ultimate power play (and probably their *only* power play) is public opinion in northeast Ohio.

If it plays out poorly for these two players this coming season in Cleveland, and February 2018 rolls around -- would the Celtics, with all of those stockpiled picks, want to play ball with Cleveland if the 2018 playoffs look bad for Cleveland because Kyrie and LeBron just ain't working out?

LeBron for one season (full or partial) on the Celtics? Could be very, very interesting.

Sorry for the watermark, but the photo was too good not to use.

I noticed some time ago that Trump knows everyone. I think it struck me for certain when King Abdullah came to visit and he said that he remembered fondly the many conversations they had had over the years.

So, I decided to search and see who all he has been photographed with. So far, I have found Frank Sinatra and Sean Connery. There are a LOT, so I will be annoying people for some time with this.

I will always announce what the post is, so if you're not interested you can just SOB.

Rodman was *the* elite defensive player in the Association IIRC.

Rodman was a cancer after he left the Pistons who grew tired of his crap. He personally eliminated the pre Duncan Spurs from the playoffs with his in game weirdness because nobody knew how to deal with him. It's hard to say if he'd have been out of the league if the Bulls hadn't taken a chance on him, because there are a lot of really dumb front offices in the NBA, but the Bulls were ideal because Rodman had to know that Jordan wasn't afraid to smack him down if he started acting out again.

Likewise JR Smith has had a troubled relationship with multiple teams where he won a sixth man award because of his streaky shooting but usually starts acting out at some point and is harmful to the team who sends him packing. He's been almost a model citizen with the Cavs, getting suspended during the playoffs for elbowing Jae Crowder in a chippy series. The point I was making that it's not a coincidence that he's played at a high level, particularly on defense, in large part because playing his A game with LeBron gave him an excellent chance to be on a championship team. When JR is dialed in he can hit from anywhere on the court.

Kyrie isn't working in concert with Gilbert on this. The owner was blindsided on this. Kyrie is the last person who wants a Golden State type offense since he handles the ball so much. And took more shots per game in the Finals than LeBron.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buckeye,

"Appears" is the operative word. Now Sessions may be a dead man walking.

Or, as someone pointed out this morning on CTH, "Bitchin' at Sessions" gets the press to cover things like the Ukrainian interference, the uranium deal, speaking fees, McCabe etc.

I know I have seen several reporters quoting those tweets in the process of trying to prove Trump doesn't know what he is doing.

Someone asked why he just didn't call Sessions into his office and talk things over. Why indeed?

Trump isn't one to do this sort of thing in public. Remember how Melania's speech contained some stuff from Michelle Obama's speech because the writer working on it forgot to note the source? That person didn't get fired nor humiliated in public.

I don't know the answer, so I am withholding judgment.

Stockman speaks truth to power:

"We are referring here to the unrelenting witch hunt that has been unleashed by Imperial Washington against the legitimately elected President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. This campaign of lies, leaks and Russophobia is the handiwork of Obama’s top national security advisors, who blatantly misused Washington’s surveillance apparatus to discredit Trump and to effectively nullify America’s democratic process."

For the Rodman Haters (and we know you are out there!):

The Case For Dennis Rodman

This is, I kid you not, a Game of Thrones length statistical study of Rodman's freakish rebounding skill and the (routinely underestimated) game value of rebounding.

His Big Finish was interesting. He claimed Rodman was unique in league history and probably the most valuable *complementary* player ever.

Which led to a new question - suppose every other superstar has a close counterpart (e.g., you take Michael so I take Kobe, sort of a stand-off, you take Wilt and I take Shaq, still a stand-off). But Rodman has no counterpart - do you make him your first pick in the All Time Fantasy Team Draft? And does that make him the All Time MVP?!?

Fascinating, in a "Too Much Free Time" sort of way.
