Good takes

From the perspective of an NBA player changes the way you see the game. KD has no bad takes. Almost makes you wish there was a behind the scenes of an NBA team. I wish there was something like “All or Nothing” for a small team like the Mavericks or something to view their lives day to day.

Around there ,

Rachel Nichols

It is crazy that at the start of every game, Rachel Nichols flashes the white power symbol with her left hand, for a long time during her monologue. You can go back and check. She did it from the preseason on. She obviously does not Want to be around “those” people. It devastated my children and I when we saw it. It is awful to do to the young, full of hopes and dreams. It is clear she wants to do something else. Let her do that something else away from our sons and daughters.
