Even though Frank Vogel is gone, the #Lakers' problems still remain.

On “Binge Sesh,” the @latimes podcast that goes behind the scenes of #WinningTimeHBO:

This week we examine the depiction of women in “Winning Time,” with help from actor Gaby Hoffmann and producer/writer Rebecca Bertuch.

In the male-dominated Showtime #Lakers world, two women emerged as key figures: Jeanie Buss, daughter of/successor to team owner Jerry Buss, and Claire Rothman, the Forum’s GM and VP.…
Sifting through what’s fact, what’s fiction and what’s something in between, we examine whether a story can be honest without being fully true — and whether the series solves the problem posed by its womanizing protagonist, Jerry Buss.…

Not a ton of games but some interesting TWEETSTORM WORTHY developments.

Lemme see some QTs tonight, eh friends?

Title: The Dwight Game
#Grizzlies @ #Raptors

A few things jump out on the Grizz side beyond just JJJ having a juicy one and Bane continuing to romp without Ja.

Thing 1 - Melton only got 17 mins. He tried to make the most of them with a usage of 35 but 17 mins is gross no matter how it goes.
I'm going to hang tight because while we all know Jenkins likes to yank him around, this is just ... come on. If it happens again, then I guess we just call Tyus Jones the guy who soaks up all the newly found mins and go from there.

On Jones, he played 34 mins and...

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.

"AD's Flu Game, Not Quite"

RTs/Likes appreciated

Again, doing these Sunday through Thursday nights, off Fri and Sat going forward.
#Heat @ #Pistons

Not a ton of thoughts on this game. Miami missed a bunch of FTs or some of the fantasy lines could have been a bit more decent.

Adebayo's assists are near 4 over the last 2 weeks, but his knee continues to concern me. Probably just...
... hold your breath and hope he doesn't miss many more games for it because the other stuff is moving in the direction we wanted/expected.

For the Pistons, I'm enjoying the Cory Joseph stream with Killian Hayes out. Make sure to yank CoJo the moment Killian returns.

#Lakers I am a lifelong fan. After reading your organization took PPP money I can assure you I will never allow one dollar of my future earnings to matriculate your way. A friend of mine who coaches baseball and generates his living by mentoring teens has been out of work
since this started. The college he instructs at was closed and when he went to try and receive the money intended for small business it had been entirely subscribed. I don't care if you give the money back, the fact you felt obliged to
help yourselves to taxpayer money intended for small business owners when your organization has access to hundreds of millions of dollars and special lending arrangements through the NBA is disgusting. I can assure you I am no longer a fan. #lakers

A continuación un informe especial sobre la trágica muerte de #KobeBryant, su hija y otras siete personas. Acabo de regresar del lugar de la tragedia y esta fue parte de la información que pude recopilar. Va.
1. Kobe tenía su academia Mamba Sports Academy, donde su hija Gigi, 13 años, jugaba en el equipo de baloncesto. La leyenda de los #Lakers vivía en Newport Beach, al sur de #Los Angeles. Siempre renegó del tráfico angelino y por eso apenas pudo se compró un helicóptero.
2. El equipo de su hija jugaba hoy a las 12, un partido contra un equipo de Fresno, ciudad del norte de California. Por ese motivo Kobe invitó en su helicóptero a la entrenadora del equipo Christina Mauser, a John Altobelli, DT de beisbol, a otra niña jugadora y sus padres.

A running thread of things that @Twitter could do to unlock value for users. Will add to overtime. Please feel free to retweet and reply with your own, most of these below I have just taken and summarized from others. In no particular order. 1/♾ #JustKidding 🤔 or am I?
@Twitter I drafted a tweet on my phone but of course, can't access "draft's" on the desktop. So lets maybe start there. The desktop and @Tweetdeck version should be MORE robust than the mobile app not less. Tweetdeck, for example, has no bookmarks, emoji's, live video, polls, gif's, etc
@Twitter @TweetDeck There are SO MANY great meaningful quotes, threads, replies, and conversations that vanish into the Twitter ether, drowned out by hot takes, snark, and 280 character riffs on what some influencer or politician just did. Find a way to collect and resurface this treasure trove.

1/ Congratulations to the #Raptors and to #Canada on winning their first NBA title. They played a great series - #kawhileonard was a great leader but 4 players with 20 points in an elimination game is huge. #NBAFinals
2/ The #Warriors showed a lot of heart and hustle in staying in this game despite injuries and had the ball in Curry's hands with a chance to win, but didn't get it done. #NBAFinals
3/ Yes, the #Warriors were banged up in an epic way, but that doesn't take away from what the #Raptors accomplished. Remember when the 1987 #Lakers beat a banged up #Celtics team? As a #Celtics fan, I was still in awe of how talented the Lakers were.

Via Momo on Maginka "They got the 2 of the biggest and best jobs in the NBA, and I think there's been some lack of self awareness of how many other people wanted those jobs when they got it. Who wouldn't want to be present and GM of LAL? #Lakers
“Especially In LA with the young core they started to build. As u know back when they got the job it happened real fast, there wasn’t an audition for anybody else. Jeanie fired her brother and fired Mitch and hired Maginka right away”
“There was a lot of people hoping & trying to get a shot. When u walk into a situation where the rest of the league resents the fact that u got the job & got that job w/ the experience and background”

“In a lot of ways LAL job is a job u should work for 3 other org b4 u get it”
