Mayme’s family has owned @AhSamFloralCo since 1933. They got a call out of the blue from @StephenCurry30’s… #nba ImageImage
…team wanting her to be in a video w/@Google ab small businesses re-opening!

Mayme taught Steph how to make a flower arrangement.

She said to him: “You play basketball you better not use a knife, because if I cut yourself you won’t play again!” 😂 #nba ImageImage
I mean…is she not precious? More Mayme, less hate in this world please!

This Filathlitikos B.C., jersey belonged to #Giannis Antetokounmpo, who played for the Greek team during the 2011-2012 season, leading up to his draft by the #MilwaukeeBucks in 2013. @Giannis_An34
Giannis and his four brothers were raised in Greece by their parents, Nigerians who emigrated to the European country in 1993. Challenged by racism and xenophobia, Charles often struggled to find work, and the family lived in fear of deportation.
Despite the challenges of poverty, including the need to share the same pair of basketball shoes, Giannis and his older brother Thanasis, took up basketball. After being discovered at the age of 13, Giannis made great strides playing junior and professional basketball in Greece.

Uma ressonância magnética mostrou que Trae Young está lidando com uma CONTUSÃO ÓSSEA no pé direito.

A lesão aconteceu em um infeliz acidente. Com 36 segundos para o término do terceiro período, Trae pisou, de forma acidental no pé de um dos árbitros.

⬇️⬇️🧶
Primeiro o que é um contusão óssea ❓
Edema ósseo traduz um contusão óssea. É o inchaço que ocorre na área mais interna dos ossos causando danos o tecido medular dentro do osso.
Qualquer coisa que cause estresse adicional ao osso pode causar edema.

**parte branca ali na seta**
📌Diferentemente dos hematomas na pele, em que há espaço de sobra para o sangue escoar para fora, as contusões ocorrem em uma pequena área, formando “piscinas” de sangue dentro dos ossos devido à restrição de espaço, causando muita dor.

Un día como hoy en #LakeShow...

26/06/1996: Los Charlotte Hornets eligen con el pick #13 a Kobe Bryant de Lower Merion HS, quien terminaría siendo el mejor jugador de esa camada y uno de los mejores de todos los tiempos... no con Charlotte, sino como un Laker.
¿Cómo pasó? HILO: Image
Una tarde, Chick Hearn, legendario comentarista de #LakeShow, recibió un llamado.
Era Jerry West, gloria del equipo y actual GM, casi hiperventilando: "Acabo de presenciar el mejor workout de toda mi vida. Es un muchacho de 17 años."

West creía estar frente a un talento único. Image
El problema era que #LakeShow tenían el pick 24, y era sabido que, aunque muchos dudaban en tomarlo en el Top 10, este joven sensación de Lower Merion seguramente sería drafteado mucho antes.

Lo que sucedió después es una de los cabildeos más increíbles de la historia de la NBA. ImageImage

April 25th marks the Chicago Bulls playoff run to their 1st World Championship 30 years ago to the day.
I was an undrafted & the lone rookie on that historic team. I’ve come a long way since then & I’m a long way away form Chicago on this cold rainy day in Austin, so I thought
it might be fun to reflect on the 1990-91 season over the next few weeks or months.
One of my favorite moments/experiences from that season was being on the Oprah show with a few of my teammates.

Can you name them all?

#RealMenWearRed
#DaBulls
#ChicagoBulls #NBA
Training Camp that year was the hardest thing I had ever experienced in my life in sports. It was a WAR ZONE between the lines. When I tell you MJ was on a mission to win the championship it would be an understatement. The man was a smoldering beast! Everything we did was hard &

Gli argomenti usati nella reazione quasi unanime dei politici sulla #SuperLeague evidenziano due cose: a) i politici non hanno scrupoli a strumentalizzare lo sport a fini di consenso, invece di rispettarne l’autonomia: b) i politici non capiscono molto di economia dello sport.
La #SuperLeague può legittimamente non piacere ai tifosi.

Ma chi deve garantire le regole della competizione di mercato non può fare affermazioni senza fondamento.

Qui la decisione della UE, su un caso analogo nel 2017, dove si denunciano le restrizioni alla concorrenza. Image
Ciò che fa sorridere è la surreale ragione invocata da alcuni politici: “il calcio è del popolo”. Ma la #superleague è tale proprio perché estremamente più “popolare” di Benevento-Spezia. Sarà ricca solo se sarà popolare Se così non fosse, JPM non ci avrebbe investito miliardi.

QUÉ SIGNIFICA LA CREACIÓN DE LA SUPERLIGA 🇪🇺⚽️💶

Es oficial: la Super League ha nacido. 12 clubes se cortaron solos de la UEFA y decidieron crear su propia liga, entre semana, para competirle a la Champions. A la UEFA/FIFA no les gustó nada. Y esto recién comienza...

ABRO HILO. Image
Para que tengan una especie de índice, el hilo será dividido así:

📍Explicación y formato del torneo
📍 Implicaciones financieras (importante)
📍 Implicaciones deportivas
📍 ¿Se puede parar esto?

Vamos a ello.
LOS FUNDADORES DEL TORNEO

La #SuperLeague estará compuesta por:
🇮🇹 #Milan - #Juventus - #Inter
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 #ManUtd - #Liverpool - #ManCity - #Chelsea - #Arsenal - #Tottenham
🇪🇸 #Barcelona - #AtléticoMadrid - #RealMadrid

21 UNDER 21: PRIMERA PARTE

El fútbol mundial tiene una gran cantidad de jugadores jóvenes que van a ser los líderes de la próxima generación.

Por eso, me interesó hacer una lista con los 21 mejores jugadores del mundo con 21 años o menos. Y hay unos nombres...

ABRO HILO.
DISCLAIMER:

1. La inspiración de este hilo se basa en la lista de ESPN “25 under 25” de jugadores de #NBA. Decidí hacer una versión U21 de fútbol.
2. Esto es una OPINIÓN. No me maten (?) Puede que me olvide o no quiera poner a un jugador.

En fin, comencemos.
Menciones honoríficas:

🇫🇷 Eduardo Camavinga
🇮🇹 Sandro Tonalli
🇳🇱 Mitchel Bakker
🇪🇸 Óscar Mingueza
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Reece James
🇩🇪 Kai Havertz
🇧🇷 Matheus Cunha
🇮🇹 Moise Kean
🇲🇰 Dejan Kulusevski

Son muchos, sí (?) Pero había que destacarlos. Vamos con la lista.

⚖️📚Some #legal thoughts on #NFTs 👇

1️⃣ Generally NFTs will NOT constitute securities (in US or UK)

🇺🇸Not ‘investment contracts’ (under #Howey test)

🇬🇧Not security tokens or e-money tokens, and so are ‘unregulated tokens’

(1 of 6) @OVioHQ @jamie247
2️⃣🚨#NFTs CAN be securities in certain circumstances

For example:
* fractionalised NFTs embodying rights to royalties; or
* NFTs sold with promise of future liquidity & continued services from issuer

Just calling something an NFT doesn’t change its underlying nature

(2 of 6)
3️⃣🤯Interaction between IP laws and #NFTs is COMPLICATED

By default ownership of #NFT = ownership of the token itself, NOT of the underlying work (or copyright/other IP rights in it)

That ownership remains with the original creator of the work

When an asset class grows 60x in 1 year from $1B to $60B and you’ve got:

Mark Cuban saying it reminds him of the beginning of the Internet.

…It’s worth tuning into.

Time for a thread 👇👇👇
This week, I break down Decentralized Finance!

1. DeFi 👉 What is it & why should you care?

2. Four Big Uses 👉 Lending, Stablecoins, Trading & NFTs
1/ DEFI: WHAT IS IT?

In a nutshell, DeFi is doing finance activities OUTSIDE the financial system.

Like lending, trading, crowdfunding, insurance, derivatives, digital collectibles etc.

It has the potential to disrupt the ENTIRE financial economy.

People, you need to STOP using player weight from basketball reference and other online sources that pull from it to say players are BIGGER today.

Tomas Satoransky
Height: 6'7"
Weight: 210lbs

Kevin Willis
Height: 7'0"
Weight: 220lbs

These wild inaccuracies are constant.

#NBA ImageImage
Proof.

This is the information that makes up the graphs the media and kids use to tell you players weigh more today. ImageImage
That is where THIS data comes from that shows the average weight of players throughout basketball history.

Your EYES tell you that players in the 90s were bigger than today, and that is exactly what the data would say if it was accurate.

A trabajar. Un par de cosas sobre el Lakers vs Grizzlies de esta noche. Lakers llegan con su racha de victorias mas larga de la temporada (6) incluyendo 4 seguidas en casa (si, con 3 OT incluidos) Lo que representa los primeros 3 juegos seguidos con OT desde la temporada 91-92
donde ganaron el juego 2 vs Dallas con derrotas en el 1 y 3 (vs Houston y Clippers) El de hoy es el último juego de los 5 en casa antes de salir a visitas a Denver y Minnesota. La última victoria frente a OKC vio a LeBron James empatar el juego con un triple con 19 segundos en el
cronómetro y a Wesley Matthews ponerlos adelante con un triple con 41 segundos en el OT. Los 2 equipos tenían bajas importantes (AD y Caruso, mientras que el Thunder apenas vistió a 8 jugadores) pese a ello OKC llegó a liderar por 20 puntos en el 2do cuarto. Ambos equipos tiraron

👤 ¿Qué día es mañana?

👤 ¡Noooo! Es 6 de febrero, se abre la temporada de traspasos en la #NBA

Y los @celtics tienen una TPE de 28 millones. Vamos a ver qué pueden hacer con ella

#BleedGreen #Capologist

Dentro hilo ⏬
El 6 de febrero es el equivalente este año al 15 de diciembre de otros años. Significa que los agentes libres firmados en pretemporada pueden ser traspasados ya, lo que supone el inicio oficioso de la temporada de traspasos, prolongándose hasta el 25 de marzo
¿Qué jugadores podrían interesarnos? Después de este hilo de @ChrisForsberg_, el nombre de Harrison Barnes ha emergido con fuerza. Ayudaron sus 24 PTS, 6 AST, 5 REB en la victoria de los Kings el jueves

Oi gente! Como boa torcedora do Toronto Raptors resolvi fazer essa thread falando do Chris Boucher. Com média de 14.3 ppg, 57.8% FG, 6R e 3BLK por jogo vindo do banco, Boucher chama atenção, mesmo com o início ruim (2-8) da equipe até aqui. E olha, a história dele é incrível. 👇🏾 Image
Ele já foi DPOY, MVP, campeão da G-League e campeão da NBA pelo Raptors, mas como pra maioria dos jogadores, nem sempre tudo foi um mar de rosas. De Castries, Santa Lúcia, Boucher mudou-se para Montreal ainda criança para conhecer seu pai, com quem teve uma relação conturbada. Image
Cresceu em meio a pobreza e teve uma adolescência difícil, com 16 anos abandonou os estudos para trabalhar como lavador de pratos em um restaurante e chegou até a morar na rua. Só aos 19 anos começou a jogar basquete, através de uma oportunidade em um projeto social.

As I keep getting angry message claiming this was deliberately quoted out-of-context (which it was not; I forgot what I thought, but I guess I just found Dr. Drosten's blunt #hyperbole mildly-interesting), I will now present an extra-extensive superset, longer towards BOTH ends.
[Dr. Drosten:] "We don't expect a vaccine before the #US, uh, #elections. Uhm, we have―
[Dr. Barker:] *laughs*
[Dr. Condit:] *laughs*
[Dr. Racaniello:] *grimaces*
[Dr. Drosten:] *laughs* "Well, we expect a #vaccine before the next GERMAN electionswhich (will be autumn next year)>

[Dr. Condit:] "So, I'm curious about the #NBA-vaccine. If you know any details: is it just ›spike‹, or does it have other antigens in it as well?
[Dr. Drosten:] "No, spike. This is a spike-based vaccine."

I was curious about how #NBA teams were constructed with regards to how many winners were on the team, so I built a gratuitous circular #dataviz about it.

Full list of teams here: peterbeshai.com/nba-winners-20… (sorry, you have to pinch to zoom out on mobile)
Some fun examples:

Golden State is comprised of a handful of champions with a strong history of winning plus a bunch of young or typically losing players
New Orleans has a proven winner in JJ Redick, but the rest of the team has never really experienced success in the NBA
