OT: NBA Offseason Thread, July 2016

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own off-topic thread, we won’t distract from the site’s true purpose, off-topic threads. Link goes to Kevin Durant’s announcement in The Players’ Tribune.

OT: NBA Playoffs Thread 2016

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: off-topic Sam Hinkie threads.

Sam Hinkie steps down as Philadelphia 76ers general manager, president of basketball operations

Posting this because of some of the factors related to his resignation are relevant to MLB front offices.

I haven’t had time to read the full thirteen pages of his long-winded resignation. With that in mind…as much as I buy into having an objective “process” in running a sports organization, you need people skills and ownership backing to get buy in or your franchise will be a muddled mess. Ultimately, though, you either find success or you end up unemployed.

Update: Finished reading the whole thing. Interesting stuff. Here’s a link to the pdf.

OT: Monthly NBA Thread - March 2016

I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: best shape of his life stories and Trump’s junk (or so I assume).
