    I mean in the context of paying for a brand new venue, not just upgrading one. The Packers were able to upgrade Lambeau by selling additional shares that don't actually give voting power to the owner, but it worked.

    I mean same dollar amount though. The garden is old as shit. Those upgrades cost as much as the cowboys stadium.

    I marvel at greenbays "stock" situation. I had a coworker who had shares but if I remember correctly she had no power to actually sell them or some weird shit. People just buy them just because.

    MSG is weird though because some of the stadium I guess can be considered public works with Penn station and what not. Iirc the garden hasn't paid taxes in a few decades.

    I'm with you though fuck the most of these billionaires.

    On the basketball front though. I was wrong about kyrie. I laughed at ppl who said he was top 10 but there is no doubt now. Although it's early he and horford are legit mvp candidates.

    Good shit Geo. I went to college with Whiteside and it's cool to see part of the Herd thrive in the NBA.

    Reading through the portis drama in Chicago.. every picture of Mirosnitch makes me want to punch him. He has that face you just wanna knock the fuck out. I'm sure other Bulls folks wanted to punch him at one time or another, portis just did it.

    @xEGAxBeastkingx So about that #SarverOut campaign, the GoFundMe posted this a couple days ago...
    #SarverOut Fam,

    I'm afraid I have some bad news to deliver. Today at 2:00 PM I received a call from our Clear Channel rep saying they will not run the billboards. Keep in mind I had already paid for it, submitted the designs, and we were in the 11th hour.

    After speaking with the Regional President, she informed me there was a change in Corporate policy 9-12 months ago not allowing "attack ads". Hmm, really? #SarverOut is considered an attack ad? SMH. It's very ironic that Clear Channel ran this "attack ad" 8 months ago. http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/03/08/sign-of-discontent-outside-tesla/amp/

    So where does this leave us? I'm currently in the process of getting a refund and working on reaching out to other advertising companies. I just did an interview with ABC 15 and hope to speak with other media outlets.

    My personal opinion is the Suns had some offline talks with the higher ups at Clear Channel to not run the ad. Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, and user every other type of social media to get the unprofessional dealings of Clear Channel exposed.

    This is only a road block to getting your voice heard and rest assured I'll work tirelessly to achieve our objective. #SarverOut

    Wow. They may have just riled a fire under the Suns fanbase with this. If they're really putting this much work in trying to block this billboard I won't be surprised if something more noticeable ends up being made.

    Yeah, this is some totalitarian nonsense going on right here. Remember when the city of Charlotte wanted Shinn's blood when he was accused of kidnapping and raping a woman, and the pressure forced him to move the team to NO? I don't think it'll get to that point but this could be even more of a PR nightmare than the last few days have been especially with ESPN putting the entire organization on blast in ways that I have never seen them do from any other team in any sport short of them doing something ridiculous like covering up a criminal charge.

    There are other garbage teams like the Kings, but at least the FO clearly cares about the fans and the city. This just makes it look like that Sarver only gives a shit about himself.

    Waiters does this every night. Suns fans saw this a couple nights ago. And a lot of teams saw it last season, including the Rockets and Warriors during Miami's 13 straight wins.

    I don't know how Waiters constantly plays like ass for most of a game and then he just morphs into Kobe in crunch time. It's the most amazing shit I've ever seen.

    Man boston no longer annoy me. They are now more watchable since they no longer have to rely on isiah(drive and flail my petite body and hope for a call every time I shoot) thomas for offense. Respecting brad for his defensive plays.

    Now if only smart could stop those dramatic flops.

    Suns are back churning out Ls but at least Alex Len is grabbing 10+ boards a night and is now in the Top 10 all-time in career blocks for the team.

    Yaaaay.

    Dion Waiters is trash, that was intentional. And I'm not even a Utah fan. But Gobert should have got up and punched his ass in the back of the head.

    Lonzo is probably gonna be the all time leader in blocks by a PG. Dude has a knack for playing team defense even if his one on one game is suspect. I expect to see more of this on the future once he gets a little bigger and older.

    Is there an official video of him ACTUALLY doing anything? So far I just hear people saying he did it with bo official video. I am still holding out on him being innocent until then.

    They really need to find a way to get Dotson some meaningful minutes. Maybe dropping Beasley out of the rotation and splitting that time between Thomas and Dot. Dude has been instant offense every game he's seen the floor but it's always been garbage time.

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/21383210/lebron-james-says-dennis-smith-jr-dallas-mavericks-knick

    I know Smith is Lebrons boy but I don't see what he's trying to accomplish here. Good on Kanter for stepping up for the French Prince.

    8 teams passed on Smith and with this small sample size, all teams but Boston with the Tatum pick made a "mistake".

    Hope the Knicks cook the Cavs again for this nonsense....

    ...ok. maybe it was just a mistake, and china is realllllllly overreacting.

    china's legal system ain't america. "innocent" ain't likely if it goes to trial:

    "Not guilty is unheard of," Wong says. "American people think the systems will be the same. The Chinese government doesn't function that way. When they reach a trial, they believe that the investigation is already over, and they're really only talking about how punishment will be rendered. We don't understand that. It's more like the French inquisition there."

    chances are politics keep him out of jail, but if i'm overseas, i'm not committing any crimes in a country that still carries out shooting executions.

    I thought before the season started that DSJ was probably going to be RotY. His slow start + Ben Simmons being on another level probably derailed that, but Smith is going to be elite.

    I honestly have no idea how the Mavs are at the bottom of the West.
