hold the Pepper. I was talking about Ty Isaac. Yes, usually I wouldn't OT the OP but be real, man. This topic really was not going to create that much meaningful discussion, and I'm sure many have been wondering about his visit ALL DAMN DAY.

But this guy failed on multiple fronts on that post, starting with somehow confusing Peppers and Isaac, and ending with failing to add the ' /s' at the bottom. 

You may now go back to PEPPERING the OP...about ISSAC.

From the 2028-29 season:

"The Lakers are the only team left in the league who are capable of putting five non-horrible players on the floor, so they finish an NBA-record 79-3. They've managed to hoard quality players. Their starting five of Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett, Paul George, Rudy Gobert, and Dennis Schroeder renders them effective gods among men."

You have to wonder what sort of record that starting five would put together now. 

VERY funny piece. Thanks for sharing that.

You'd never see something like this about the death of major league baseball or the NFL. Yet there's this visceral, perverse disdain for the NBA. Wonder what it could be....

I didn't read the piece as anti-NBA at all.  In fact, I would have thought that a big NBA fan would find it even funnier because of the pathos involved.  The Breaking Madden series, at least the Super Bowl episode, didn't have the inherent sadness.  In addition, I would have thought big NBA'ers would have had added appreciation for the pieces like the flow of teams winning championships, guys coming out of permanent retirement, etc.
