The NBA draft is so brutal for no reason. With the 10th pick the 76ers took this kid Mikal Bridges who was a Philly native, who went to school in the city and whose Mom works for the Sixers. They interview the kid about how happy he is to be playing for the Sixers, his Mom talks about how thrilled she is that he's staying at home and it's a real nice moment.

Then 15 minutes later it's announced he's been traded to Phoenix.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Looks like LeBron outsmarted Doncic & the Mavs thus leading to Green's three-pointer, with mere seconds left in regulation time.  Look closely and see the Laker's Howard pull his opponent's arms (an impedance and no foul called), that gave Green a clearer path to shoot sans obstruction.

The dunk that didn't count.  Ball goes in courtesy of Harden's dunk, then comes out after twirling in the net inside out, then goes back in...go figure.  The officials couldn't so they ruled it a non-basket.  Huh?  Check it out below:
