OT: Monthly NBA Thread - February 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: contract opt-outs and tanking (in baseball).

Link goes to the announcement of your 2016 NBA All-Star Game entertainment, Sting.

OTP - 2015 November 16: It’s not baseball, it’s politics

In 1951, Warren Spahn was on the way to becoming the winningest left-handed baseball pitcher. Will painted the scenario of a game when he was pitching for the Boston Braves against the New York Giants.

The Giants sent up to the plate a rookie who had yet to record his first big league hit. The rookie was Willie Mays.

“Spahn stood from the mound, 60 feet and six inches from home plate, and fired a bullet in. Mays crushed it,” Will said. “After the game, sports writers asked Spahn what happened. He said, ‘gentlemen, for the first 60 feet, that was a hell of a pitch.’ If it’s not good enough in baseball, it’s not good enough in government either.”
