    The NBA Preseason is already underway to little fanfare. The big season storyline seems to be when and how the league will force 100% vaxx compliance on a few reluctant superstars. The NBA has required all team and arena staff and personnel to be vaxxed without exception, but the players technically have the option to decline, wear masks at all times, get daily nose swabs, and sequester themselves throughout the season. Golden State, Brooklyn, and New York have "local ordinances" in place preventing unvaxxed players from entering their arenas. Andrew Wiggins succumbed to the threat of losing half his salary and took the shot recently. Washington's Bradley Beal is an all-star level talent who is also publicly refusing. Jonathan Isaac of Orlando has made some headlines with his eloquent opposition to mandates.

    The biggest name though is Kyrie Irving, an eccentric loudmouth who has had no qualms about acting in his own self-interest in the past. Yesterday, the Nets owner Joe Tsai (AliBaba billionaire born in Taiwan, raised in Canada, educated in the USA, and Hong Kong-Canadian dual citizen) declared through mouthpiece GM Sean Marks that Kyrie would not be allowed to join the team as a "part time player." He will be forced to get the vaxx (for his health), sit out the year (and beyond), or potentially be traded away from the superteam he founded. The Wiggins precedent means the Nets don't have to pay Irving for their home games, but it's unclear if they are liable for his salary for the road games from which he will be purposefully excluded. Meanwhile, sports journalists have taken these arbitrary league rules and conferred the qualities of both Science and Morality onto them. They will use their podiums to sway public pressure against Irving and any other holdouts. Not unrelated: the black community in NYC is currently only about 28% fully-vaxxed.

    Lest we forget, our CF Rookie of the Year candidates are Oklahoma City's Josh Giddey, Washington's Franz Wagner, and Orlando's Corey Kispert. We'll also keep an eye on Luka Garza's minutes in Detroit and see if Wokemaster Popovich gives Joe Weiskamp any playing time in San Antonio.

    Thanks for the start up Phall! I watched the videos of Beal and Issac dismantle the cuck sportswriters on YouTube. Good stuff. I wish they would start playing the race card on this Vax issue, Blacks do it on everything else. Maybe those guys are to proud to do it but I’m sure Irving isn’t. I respect him for making a stand though.

    I hope Irving holds out. I'm assuming he'll still be getting a large portion of his contract. Make the manager eat crow and pay him to sit.

    Also thanks for that last paragraph! Some young talent to follow for sure In those rookies.

    I stand with anyone of any race that doesn't want this poison. It's also about World Control Commie Style. I hope no one else caves into the pressure.

    I'm excited to see alot of these young guys play. I'm just pissed about the teams they went to. McClung to the Lakers. Weiskamp to the Spurs with their
    Commie Coach who hated Christopher Columbus and all whites. Garza on the Pistons. I think OKC for Giddey and Kispert on Orlando are the best fit and
    they should actually get to play alot and maybe blossom into stars over times. The other guys I'm not so sure. They have the talent but are on bad teams.

    Mac McClung was waived officially by the Lakers today. He signed with their G League team on a non-exclusive deal that (I believe) lets him sign with any other team that wants him at any time. Each team gets a pair of "two-way contracts" to offer G League players to maintain exclusive rights, but Los Angeles didn't value him enough to extend one of those.

    Austin Reaves, however, signed a full NBA contract with the Lakers to fill out their roster. He'll be their only white player to start the season.

    Glad to know Reaves signed a full contract. Him and McClung would likely not be "allowed" to both be up and coming young Whites with talent and flare on the Lakers. I believe the reason to be Lebron and his very fragile, paranoid ego, even at this late stage of his career. I've always viewed him as not really among the greats with a killer instinct. Yes, he's great but his greatness is overhyped and he can't have any young bucks threaten his limelight ego at all. Especially young Whites. Just my 2 cents.

    The NBA Season is gonna start soon. Tonight in the Heat vs Celtics Game Tyler Herro went off for 29 pts. With Dragic being on the Raptors now it's only Robinson and Herro now for Miami. What a difference from a year or two ago. I also hate how they bring Herro off the bench.

    It's really sad that Garza, Weiskamp, and a few others are getting almost no minutes even in post season. Garza was the NCAA Mens Player of the year yet he sits. Weiskamp is
    athletic as they come and the best shooter in the draft yet he sits. Man I get so angry at what they do to our guys. McClung already on a training league level. What a joke!

    On a good note the Cleveland Cavs may be a team to watch more this year. They now have Lauri Markkenen, Cedric Osman, Dean Wade, Ricky Rubio, Kevin Pangos, Mitch Ballock,
    Kyle Guy, Dylan Windler and Kevin Love. We will see what the opening day roster looks like
    but that's alot of our guys. Hard to believe but I'm liking it! :)
