  1. 2017 NBA OFFSEASON

    That's an insane amount of money for a guy who has only played 31 NBA games. The man must be as good as they say. Check out this Brett Brown quote: "He does things on a court that remind me of, you know, somebody that's able to hear music and just play the song," Brown said. "You know, he will study [Tim] Duncan, or study KD, or another player, and all of a sudden it's a part of his game. He's very unique, very unique." http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20971278/joel-embiid-philadelphia-76ers-accepts-max-rookie-scale-contract-extension

    Hard to bet against my Bulls being the worst team in the league. Their best player is zach lavine coming off an ACL tear? Is it Robin Lopez? The rookie they moved up in the draft for? Hard to say. The Knicks will play some ugly basketball, but the Porzingis/Kanter duo is going to win some games. I really don't see how the Bulls beat anyone. Maybe a few games a month when Mirotic plays well.
  3. The Deuce

    Best episode so far in my opinion. The standing ovation bit at the end was equal parts funny and sad.
  4. The Deuce

    I get your point there, but in some ways I would say Candy is living the conflict. The mob stuff is interesting, but I don't expect much conflict with the PD on that front.
  5. The Deuce

    Loved episode 3. Scummy James Franco getting more screen time is a plus. Darlene is still my favorite character. Interested to see what's up with this Mike guy.
  6. The Deuce

    Y'all really calling for the pace to quicken in a David Simon show? Shit Omar didn't even show up til episode 3. Lester was only fiddling with dollhouse furniture at this point...
  7. The Deuce

    This board used to have a whole forum for The Wire and we haven't even started a thread for The Deuce yet? Shame. The first two episodes have been GREAT! I could never really get into Treme or Show Me A Hero so for me this feels like a return to form for David Simon. Excellent cast of characters. Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco have both surpassed my expectations so far. Bartender James Franco is a cool character, but I'm curious to see more of scummy twin James Franco. My favorite character so far is Darlene. So many Wire vets in this show. Shouts to Slim Charles as the diner owner who the pimps don't want to cross. Also, the show has already been renewed for Season 2! http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/deuce-renewed-season-2-at-hbo-1041126

    I'll just leave this here:
  9. Games of Thrones Unsullied thread

    Qyburn being way too interested in the zombie hand was a highlight of the episode for me. He just walked over and picked it up in the middle of their super serious demo.
  10. Games of Thrones Unsullied thread

    In the books, yes. There is a key bit to the prophecy which sort of drives her hatred of Tyrion. In show, I can't remember how they handled it word for word. I won't bring up the specifics of the book stuff because it feels like they left a certain part of the prophecy out on purpose. She also essentially already has a zombie of her own, so I imagine she would be more prone to believe.
  11. Games of Thrones Unsullied thread

    Actually, Cersie believing in the dead is in line with her character in both the books and the show. She's really the only Lannister who has believed in prophecies throughout the story. Not only does she believe in prophecies, but the prophecies have proved to be true. I don't think she would dismiss anything as superstitious nonsense at this point.
  12. Raw is John Cena Is Good At His Job - 8/28/2017

    "And the key wording was mostly from the writing team" is supposed to prove something? That's some vague nonsense. Again, i'm sure they had an idea of where they were going with that promo. "Mostly" is the key word there. If it was really scripted down to the very last word Cena looks even better. Dude really needs to get out of this business and try something else.
  13. Raw is John Cena Is Good At His Job - 8/28/2017

    See, it wouldn't have been such a burial if Roman could work the mic. I'm sure they had an idea of what they wanted to do with that promo, but there is absolutely no way that was all scripted. Roman could have turned that around, but he truly is not capable. If it was scripted down to the word and Roman ok'd it, that's on him too. Either way, my main point is that they had nowhere to go the minute they started this feud. Roman getting exposed on the mic was bound to happen unless Cena held back.
  14. Games of Thrones Unsullied thread

    See I was under the impression that was discussed off screen. Tyrion surely told Jamie they were bringing some demonstration. I don't know why they cut that Jamie scene so short. Man, the Lannisters really got the short end of the stick this year.
  15. Games of Thrones Unsullied thread

    Cersie did know what they were bringing. Wasn't that the whole point of Tyrion's rushed meeting with Jamie? They just cut away from that scene early for some reason. They did that a few times with Tyrion scenes this year.
