Have any news outlets confirmed yet if the earthquake there yesterday was in fact a result of Kawhi's huge balls landing in LA?

LEL @ Kawhi chitting on another team after winning a title. Good stuff.

Toronto's too old imo. Lowry and Gasol are 33-34. Siakam has talent and Van Fleet came out of no where but who knows if he is going to maintain that.

Watch or PERISH

 

Well done! 

Just an opinion, but I agree with Oz and Stomp, if you want to step up your game, I think you need to throw in some more humor, or at least some stronger personal opinions. I like the artwork, the videos are pleasing to the eye, but you aren't providing anything new to hard core sports fans. You need to make your videos more about Mauro, and not just reporting sports news.

Yeah, something that I found interesting while posting this on the Clippers forum is that most Clippers fans already knew about that stuff. It's tough to find a balance between being too hardcore and too casual, but I'll do my best haha.

I'm trying to figure out what gets more views, and it's not easy to know

Maybe you can create an alter ego, and give contrasting views! That's all you see on sports channels during the morning, 2 different personalities arguing about sports subjects.

My previous project was a little more opinion based but I moved away from it because I caught myself "rooting against" a guy, if I called him overrated before, just to be right about him, and that's not a type of energy that I want to carry around anymore.

But yes, I'm very much trying to implement some humor elements in my stuff, but I think that it will mostly be on social media. People there like colors and quick laughs, and on YouTube you can have the more serious, long-form stuff. Any suggestions will be appreciated

Westbrook traded to OKC for Chris Paul, 2 first round picks, and 2 pick swaps. 

Will be interesting to see Westbrook and Harden together again.

Is Klay gonna line up at the start of the season?  They could be playing catch up from the start

Nope. Did his ACL in game 6 -  won't see him until at least the 40-50's if not later than that. If DLo doesn't gel with Steph they're going to find it difficult.  Lost Iguadala too now that bench is shallow

D'Angelo Russell is a legit superstar. He's A LOT more talented than people think he is.

He's talented but he always needs the ball and that isn't how GSW plays. I could see Curry moving into more of a shooting guard role until Klay comes back. It's a good move by the warriors, Curry would be gassed by midseason if he had to carry the team.

That US roster is laughable, so many great players missing. Not watching due to that. 

Still the heavy favorites. Not many sports are dominated like the US dominates basketball. Brazil in Futsal or Beach Soccer are good counterparts

Most of the other teams have stacked nicely.  Spain,  France,  Australia and to a lesser extent Argentina are all playing great ball

4 great teams in the semis. France vs USA was a terrific game

I'm a pretty big pacers fan (amongst other teams)  and honestly am not believing they hype in Turner. The guy got molested by that giant frog eater. Yeah he gets some blocks but he gets chewed up in the paint 1v1

 

Patty Mills is a GOD fyi

I loooove Patty Mills. He’s an even bigger monster in international play.

And Turner plays smaller than he is. Doesn’t use the big frame and is basically a tall shooting guard. He has a lot of potential but needs to develop a mean streak

Gobert destroyed the US

Joe Ingles is also one of the best stories across all sports and so fun to watch.

Kyrie should have manned up and played for Australia instead of for team USA who couldn’t give a damn if he plays or not

imagine a lineup of

Kyrie, Mills, Ingles, Simmons, Bogut

Switch in Baynes and it's nearly perfect. He's been one of the best C's in the WC easily.

At an all time low on the international scale in all sports. Win 58 games in a row to losing black to black matches. Make it to every soccer World Cup ever.... don't even qualify last year. You know you're 3rd world bad when the best thing you have going for you is Henry Cejudo.
