Stealth tank job by the GOAT coach !
Just goes to show that regardless of how good the coach is, you still need the cattle. You guys will be done for a few years yet I think. Couple of O Lineman a QB and at least one really good receiver needed. Belichik after all these years still has a blindspot at drafting receivers.

Agree with that, still I can't really complain about several years in the wilderness after all the success we have had, tbh not sure if BB will still be our coach once our next SB window opens.

I just want anyone but the Eagles or Cowboys to win the Superbowl :)

This after Carlos Correa’s 13 year/350M deal with the Giants fell through, failed his medical. The Mets have gone absolutely nuts this off-season and will be running a $360M+ payroll, which will be about $80M above the next highest payroll.

The top spending NBA team's payroll is around $193 mill. The top NFL teams are in the low $200 mill.

With no salary cap or draft penalties, the Mets are on half a billion dollars.

Steve Cohen is the kind of owner that the other MLB owners have tried to keep out of baseball lol. The other owners vetoed Mark Cuban from becoming the Chicago Cubs owner about 15 ago because he would spend too much money and turn the Cubs into the Yankees, they didn’t like that idea. But now this has happened. 😂

I am quite enjoying what Steve Cohen is doing. Hopefully it puts a rocket up the other owners arses to spend money, including my own teams owners.

Juat read that the Mets luxury tax bill is over $100M, which is higher than the projected opening day payrolls of 19 teams. 😂

Spending copious amounts of money isn’t well run but I commend any owner that gives zero *s about doing it.

Red Sox owners have been trading away our best players for basically zilch for the last 4/5 years now.

Another really good Ben Simmons game. Locked up Jordan Poole completely. Looks like his body has recovered from off-season surgery and he is back up to full health

Because it was over Giannis? You see that sort of dunk 20 times a day around the NBA.

Looks even better on this angle



I rarely post Celtics highlights here, but that was absolutely brutal by JT.

Something has been off with Giannis lately (not just vs the Celts)

He looks slow, banged up and frustrated (played a lot of games in the off season for Greece)

Time for Bud to do some load management with him imo

Pretty dime a dozen dunk. Just made more of it cos it's over Giannis. But it's why I love Giannis, he will challenge shots, he doesnt care if he ends up on a poster, he cares about trying to block the shot and make a good play. If he gets dunked on, so be it.

Also I dont think their is anything wrong with Giannis, he is squarely in the MVP conversation, having a great season.

Didn't watch the game sadly but that is an all time historic choke, even by Knicks standards.

What a player Luka is.

I gather that Dallas were trailing by 9 points with fewer than 20 seconds left but also trailing by 9 points with more than 20 seconds left but fewer than 35 seconds left?
