For SpaceX and Musk fanboys:

I can engage in decent discours with genuinely interested people, which usually you folks aren't.

But if you come at me like a smartass, I'll serve you in kind.

Also, I don't work for you, and I don't have to prove anything.
Ok. No more discussions with Starship/Musk fanboys or smartasses.

I'll block without warning.

One genius thought we're not planning for rocket engines for the spaceplanes. How the fuck else would we go to "space" dumbass? Read my fucking analysis.

Our analysis (which includes an analysis of #Starship and SpaceX on-orbit refueling shortcomings):

John Wall says he told Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr: "This sh*t y'all getting away with here (with the #Rockets), if you go to any other teams, you would be out of the ****ing league. You wouldn't play. I'm trying to explain it to them because they think it's sweet."
John Wall called his tenure with the #Rockets "beyond trash" and wasn't happy with how James Harden handled it when he arrived in Houston.
John Wall explains his side of his exit in Houston. He says Stephen Silas called him and asked how he'd feel coming off the bench, explaining that Kevin Porter Jr. being the starting point guard was what the #Rockets front office wanted. "This is what the GM wants."

Probably could have started this sooner ... IT'S TWEETSTORM TIME!

Every Sunday through Thursday, Twitter friends!

As always, PLEASE Like/RT to the best of your ability!

From the top!

#Nuggets @ #Magic

I have way more to type here than Twitter can fit so please do listen to the pod tomorrow, but the quick version is that Cole Anthony makes Orlando quite a bit better.
Various injuries and just the general hot and cold spells of the season have moved Franz Wagner back into a startable position of late, though we also know a cooldown drops him back into that 160 range. Feel free to stream while he's hot if you can catch the right wave.

Please do the thing where you help me spread the word with likes/RTs (I ain't too proud to beg)

Tonight's title: Splash Wildebeest
#Magic at #Sixers

Bamba returns! But we weren't worried there, really. The bigger news is Jalen Suggs broke a thumb and that changes things here with Cole Anthony still out.
Oh, the universe says I'm supposed to tag these threads with #FantasyBasketball so we'll just do that here and see how it goes.

The wife has some patient notes to write, so I suppose I can carve out some time for this JUMBO STYLE TWEETSTORM.

Let's see if I can make it through to the end in one piece. It was a behemoth.

RTs/Likes always appreciated!

Title: Wait, Who Got Hurt?
#Suns @ #Cavaliers

Look at big JaVale. Hah! I have a soft spot for him, and honestly he hasn't been that bad lately. He's a dynamite fill-in if Ayton misses time again down the road. In the interim, he's more of a 14 or 16 teamer. Still fun, though.
Kevin Love is very much in the streamer discussion but not a games cap level guy. Jarrett Allen's FG% is robust. But overall, no particularly earth-shattering fantasy valuation changes.

Title: Gobert, Back in the Top 18

Yeah, you know where this is headed.

RTs and Likes, as always, are the steam in my engine.
#Nets @ #Cavaliers

LMA played great again and he's absolutely a must-start guy in games cap formats. Harder to deal with on the rest days in h2h but he's been so good lately he probably hangs on even there. Mills is a nice stream with Harris out.
Markkanen and Allen came back from various illnesses and looked great. Fire 'em up! Kevin Love is somehow hanging onto deep league value but his little baby-sized window to play more is gone. As is Ed Davis. Isaac Okoro needs to show me more consistency before I add there.

@elonmusk No joke, I put in zero physical labor on but just being a spectator as @SpaceX workers fabricated this engineering marvel was exhausting!

Before we start

#250wordcount sucks. Make sure u check the alt descriptions. This could easily turn into a 200 pager. I plan to do it in phases because there are even more interesting #Starship topics I want to cover. Make sure to follow if u want to see future updates on this
1. I waited 168 days for @SpaceX to finally move this launch table on 7/28/21. When it finally happened I almost called in from work so I could watch @LabPadre all day. Luckily I work from home so that wasn't necessary.

PS...Sorry Brad, we can talk later 😅 Image

O #Rockets fez um 1º tempo mediano, dava pra render mais. Os 10 turnovers são o que mantém o Pistons na partida.

Ataque estagnado, mas os jogadores estão acertando os chutes. A defesa faz um bom trabalho, apesar de pequenos lapsos nas rotações.

Destaques individuais para Christian Wood (17 PTS em 6-7 FG, 3-4 3P) e Jalen Green (11 PTS em 4-9 FG, 2 REB e 2 AST).

Não a toa, os dois tem o melhor +/- do time entre os jogadores com +5 MIN em quadra: +4 para cada.

Deixam a desejar Kevin Porter Jr. (2-6 FG, 4-8 FT, 2 AST e 3 TO) e Eric Gordon (0 PTS, 0-1 FG, 0 AST, 2 TO).

Precisam ser mais efetivos. KPJ precisa soltar mais a bola, buscar suas jogadas mais naturalmente e forçando menos. EG tem que deixar de ser um ball handler.

Silenciosamente, o #Rockets cancelou a 'Travis Scott Night', que aconteceria amanhã, no jogo contra o Pistons.

O rapper enfrenta a maior crise da sua carreira e para entender como e por que, é preciso saber o que aconteceu, em Houston, no último fim de semana.

Segue o fio! 🧵👇
Travis Scott é um dos torcedores mais famosos e fanáticos do #Rockets.

Nos últimos anos, ele foi figurinha carimbada em vários momentos e fez várias parcerias com a franquia.

Nessa thread aqui embaixo, você pode conferir esse histórico em detalhes 👇
Amanhã acontece um dos jogos mais importantes do calendário do #Rockets nesta temporada.

O primeiro duelo na #NBA75 entre Jalen Green e Cade Cunningham, escolhas #2 e #1 do draft, terá transmissão nacional e internacional da ESPN.

Ou seja, muitos olhos estarão em Houston.

Resultado injusto é pouco pra definir esse placar do 1º tempo. O #Rockets foi o melhor time em quadra nos primeiros 24 minutos, merecia sair ganhando, mas sai atrás por 8 por um evento hiper aleatório (Otto Porter Jr. matar 3 bolas de 3 seguidas).

Excelente 1º tempo do time.
A dupla Jae'Sean Tate e KJ Martin parecem muito mais maduros depois de 1 temporada na NBA. Estão jogando com uma consistência fantástica. São um ponto alto dessa road trip e nesse jogo não foi diferente.

Tate e KJ combinaram para 21 PTS (7-9 FG, 1-1 3P) e 9 REB no 1º tempo.
Alperen Sengun com mais ótimos minutos vindo do banco. 10 PTS (3-3 FG, 1-1 3P, 3-6 FT), 2 REB e 1 AST em 9 minutos. O maior +/- do time, +6.

Entre os veteranos, Daniel Theis (8 PTS em 3-4 FG, 2-2 3P) e David Nwaba (4 PTS, 6 REB) cumprindo bem seus papéis e somando ao Rockets.

The "launches" to the campus, the monitoring of the improvement efforts & the #redline that must not be crossed in the quality & quantity of armaments: this is how the 🇮🇱Israeli defense deals with the threat of #Hezbollah's precision missiles. 1
This is probably one of the few threats that the Israeli public is not fully aware of. A significant strategic threat, which could lead #Israel to launch a pre-emptive strike, even though the pretext is not nuclear weapons. This is also the hottest issue: #Hezbollah missiles! 2
Immediately after the 2ed Lebanon War, ignoring Security Council Resolution 1701, which imposed a full #embargo on arms transfers to #Hezbollah, Hezbollah embarked on a huge logistical op, with billions of $ in #Iranian funding, equipped with tens of thousands of rockets. 3

Today I want to talk about the intersections between Indigenous people and space industry.
First, some definitional stuff. I am not using Indigenous as a simple adjective here - the common meaning is 'originating or occurring naturally in a particular place".
In the context of global history, Indigenous people were the landowners when European invaders arrived in their countries from the 1400s onwards.

As always, these stem from our Rolling Player Ratings tool that adjusts average Game Score over a player's last 10 appearances by the difficulty of the schedule.…
First, a few notes:

1. These are purely objective and look at individual contributions as gleaned from box scores via schedule-adjusted Game Score.
