    They're playing a pre-tournament game against Spain in Anaheim next week and part of me is thinking about it. I don't really care too much about the team, but the chance to see Walker, Tatum, and Brown (along with other NBAers) for ~$20 is a good deal.

    There’s a graffiti mural of Larry Bird in Indiana that has tattoos on it and Larry doesn’t wanna be known as a tattoo guy so he’s mad about it

    Idk, I thought it was a funny story. It could be a parks and recs episode

    By the way - here's a picture of the " artist " Jules Muck:

    [​IMG]



    EDIT: Good news - a compromise has been met.


    from bleacherreport.com:

    Jules Muck, the artist behind the mural of the tatted-up Bird, said she was simply trying to be funny.

    “It’s nothing personal against Larry.Muck told the Indianapolis Star on Wednesday. “I actually think it’s funnier to put tattoos on people who don’t have them.”

    After consulting with Bird’s attorney in an effort to find a resolution, Muck has agreed to a compromise. Once modifications to the mural are complete, the only tattoo left on Bird’s upper torso will be the “Indiana” one on the forearm.

    “This is another human being that is obviously not liking it,” Muck said. “If he was happy and thought it was funny, that’s a different story.”

    In the end, all’s well that ends well. Still, the entire Bird mural saga — from the artwork itself, Bird having an issue with it and a resolution being reached — made it one of the most off-the-wall sports stories in some time.

    Bob Cousey got a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    Not entirely sure why, but good for him.

    I normally would be upset about it but honestly ankle sprains and basketball Are peanut butter and jelly. Not concerned unless there are ligament tears

    I also would rather they not send anybody but this year is interesting because it gave smart, brown, and Tatum an opportunity to gel with Kemba Before the season began

    Portland calls Worcester attempt to poach the Maine Red Claws 'unfortunate' | Boston.com

    First the Pawtucket Red Sox, next the Maine Red Claws?

    The Worcester City Council passed a motion this week asking city officials to reach out to the Boston Celtics to “express interest” in bringing the team’s G League affiliate to the Massachusetts city. As the Worcester Business Journal first reportedWednesday, the motion floats the idea of swiping the Red Claws from Maine once the Celtics finalize their recent agreement to purchase the Portland-based team.

    “I just want to extend that olive branch if there’s ever any potential down the road,” City Councilor Sean Rose, who introduced the motion, said during a meeting Tuesday.
