    Wow, Clippers pick up Kawhi and Paul George, all sides did well to keep that one quiet. Had a $10 bet last week on the Clippers winning the title next year, just cashed it in for $39. Having a passionate dislike for the Thunder it pleases me to see a good bloke and player like PG leave the place. They did get plenty of draft picks back though. Might as well trade Westbrook now as well and do a total rebuild but not sure if anyone will want to take on Russell's contract.

    Catching up on the days Free Agency news. Philly sign their tormenter in Al Horford, should be pretty damn good (and bloody huge) on defence and a work in progress on offence. Two of the Raptors, Lakers, Clippers are going to miss out on Kawhi and find the shelves pretty empty when they look at who else they can sign. Pelicans getting better by the day. Jazz making some good moves. Knicks are going to be pretty rubbish for a few more years (keep cap space and make a play for Giannis in a few years?) but at least they've picked up all the role players types the Lakers should probably be after.
  3. Catch a Mariners game if you're there in baseball season, the field has a retractable roof so no dramas with the rain. Ferry to nearby islands, day-trip boat to watch Killer whales, brewery tour. A couple of parkruns nearby if you're there for a Saturday morning.

    The West is more open then it's been in years and the Thunder are all about shedding talent and picks to lower their luxury tax, their fans must be sick of those owners. Wonder what that team could have become as the Sonics in Seattle with all the $$ that's come into that city in the last 10 years. Draft day tomorrow!

    Heath and fitness issues of those two aside it'll come down to how they fill out the rest of the roster, need some 3 & D guys that don't cost too much.

    Sounds like the Lakers have locked in a deal to get AD, they couldn't afford to muck around after missing out on PG and Kawhi in recent off-seasons. Need to make the most of Lebron asap. Chasing Kemba Walker as well? Pelicans will be fun to watch with Zion, Ball, and Ingram. Reckon they might trade the #4 pick to get some experienced role players to team up with the youngsters.

    Well done Toronto, took a chance on Kawhi and it's paid off big time even if that's his last game for them. What was already going to be a crazy off-season just got even more unpredictable with Durant and Thompson's long term injuries. Time is now for all the contenders in the West, just as the East had been catching up talent-wise. Hope the Knicks don't go crazy chasing free-agents, just draft at pick 3, keep building the roster and keeping cap space free and they've still got a bunch more 1st round picks over the next few years after the Porzingis trade.

    Some thought the Warriors would be short on depth in this series with KD out, but their bench has been very impressive. Iggy had a big game 2, was barely required in game 3. Dame nursing sore ribs, hard to see Blazers finding a way back into this one.

    Pelicans get the Number 1 pick in the lottery. Wonder if AD is having second thoughts about wanting out? Working with Zion and David Griffen is a more attractive option then many around the League. Knicks pick 3rd and should get Ja Morant or RJ Barrett to team up with whichever free agents they can attract.

    Phew, only a calf strain the Warriors are saying. But out for the rest of tonights game, Rockets need to capitalize.

    KD goes off injured, reports of an achillies injury which could be big news beyond this immediate play-off series into the off-season free-agency moves. Hopefully it's not as bad as that.
  12. Have enjoyed past Baku GPs but it's a shemozzle here in FP1. A drain cover (meant to be welded down) has been dislodged and wrecked the underside of the passing Williams of George Russell. The low-loader truck taking the damaged car back to the pits has had it's crane hit a bridge over the track and now oil from the hydraulics is spilling over the car.

    My annual moment of joy as the Thunder get eliminated. Thank you Damian Lillard. Bring back the Sonics!

    One of my all-time favourite Tiger wins. Missing the Big 4 plus Grigg, Houli, Short. A new Skipper, a debutant in midfield and a second gamer in the backs. On a ground where we've copped a few floggings at full strength. Bolton crumbing for Lynch could develop into a good partnership.

    First round playoff match-ups are set, biggest chance of an upset? I'd say Spurs vs Nuggets. You'd think the top four seeds in the East will get through OK.
