    What are you watching in place of sports?

    Yea i figured you understood where i was coming from. I was a young adult in the 90s and that was the last time we were somewhat free. I was just wondering if our international brothers and sisters on here were seeing the same things i am. I don't like the panic and chaos the Media is inducing across this country and can see how it is being used to manipulate the masses. This is the best place for me to get honest opinions from folks i respect on how its affecting them outside of what is being shown on TV. To be honest - US media routinely doesn't show the rest of the world in the best light. It wasn't till i was able to travel internationally that i was really able to see how overall good and peaceful other countries are. But they are shutting down entire countries based off of single-digit deaths??? That doesn't smell right to me. Especially considering there have been bigger more deadlier outbreaks of TB 2 yrs ago that didn't have anywhere near this response. Then all these CEO's stepping down and selling off stocks a couple of months prior to the outbreak. My SpiderSense been tingling like crazy this entire time. The irony is that sitting back watching all this series and movies. This is the exact plot in majority of them.

    I'm down with the NBA starting on Christmas. Actually, I'd like for it to start a week (or two) earlier, to give the players a few games or so to get used to playing again and then have a full day of games from coast to coast from 12 pm Eastern (11 am Central) and ending at like 10 pm Pacific time. It would be a cornucopia of games, an NBA bazaar if you will. Don't have any college FB bowl games on Christmas so the NFL and college FB will be out of the way. Great way to kick off the NBA.

    What are you watching in place of sports?

    Yes, I am aware of the the Patriot Act. Here's what i am trying to make you aware of. There are numerous people including myself who feel that the Constitution was never written for people like my ancestors and we weren't included and there is ample evidence to support this. So some may say, we didn't have Constitutional Rights in the first place and that's why so many figures of authority (politicians, judges, law enforcement) have treated us a certain way over the years. They have justified it in their own heads so they treat us a certain way. So trying to tell a group of people who feel that way, that if they don't do such and such, they may lose something that they never felt that they had in the first place, probably ain't going to work. Do you understand? It's like going to some country and finding a group of people who are beaten and isolated from society and saying "hey guys if you don't take actions, A, B and C, you MAY be beaten and isolated from society" They will probably scratch their heads and say, "we're already being beaten and isolated from society". Laying out consequences of what may happen to people who are already living those consequences, probably isn't going to change their behavior or get them more interested in the topic that you are discussing. As far as the War on Drugs, i am very well aware of the W.o.D. and the impact on the Black community in the U.S. as this has been something I have been railing against and telling people about since I was a teenager in the 1990s. Let's just say I am very well versed on that subject and leave it at that. To me, it's just further evidence that the rights of certain people do not exist or at the very least, the government will find ways to subvert those rights. I don't disagree with what you are saying as far as rights can be taken away, what i am saying is, there are disaffected populations who feel their rights have already been taken away or those rights never existed in the first place because people of authority routinely violate those rights. It's hard to tell people who are already living the consequences that "hey, if this happens, this may be the consequences" They are living it already. As far as the surveillance and technology, private companies are already tracking and surveilling people. They have convinced us as consumers to buy products for convenience which are nothing more than bugs to listen in on us. We traded our privacy for convenience through technology a long time ago. I will say though, that they may try to do things to a larger population which would affect more people. With that beings aid, good conversation, but let's get back to bball or what people are watching, i'm not trying to get into socio-political conversations on this board (although i have but I prefer to keep it light)

    Yep and my ability to read and Medical Doctor Brother and my Doctor. There have been tons of examples throughout recent history in regards to the "Powers that Be" not being upfront or purposely misleading with information. I am not sure of other countries but United States has a very long history of manipulating their population. Asking questions and doing your own research is the approach i take to everything. Healthy Skepticism can keep you alive. Besides the information i posted came straight from CDC website. I don't know why anyone would blindly trust the Mainstream Media in this day and age. For example during one of our playoff series there was flooding around small sections of the MidSouth. But during the broadcast they kept overhyping it so much that outside people were calling me to ask if we had been flooded out. It was like 1 neighborhood effected but the way the Media emphasized it you would've thought we were hit by Katrina. So i am just saying be skeptical and do your own research outside of mainstream media and Gov't press clips. I mean haven't ya'll watched any movies before??? Gov't are never fully forthcoming during these times.
  9. Buenas. No he visto el hilo así que he decidido crear. Tal y como van las cosas somos equipo playoff, en el difícil caso de que la temporada vuelva a ponerse en marcha tendríamos alguna oportunidad infinitesimal al título. Con el bloque que tenemos esperan buenos años.

    I will settle for the Draft in mid/late August. A Las Vegas Summer League (no fans or limited fans) from Mid September to early November and a 68 game 2020-2021 season that starts on Christmas Day. They could call the Las Vegas summer (ok, fall) league the NBA Cup or something. Won’t replace the NBA Finals but it could be the league’s version of the NIT or the Intercontinental Title. Give the winner of the NBA Cup $5 million and the fifth pick in the draft. The Brave New Normal NBA starts a couple weeks into November for a 72 game season with either NO back-to-backs or limited back-to-backs.

    Guys hope all of you safe at home. Not much time to post now as trying to stay safe and trying to save company as well. I agree with all of you, this **** will stay for long and will kill at least one million people in the word which is terrible. I don't believe al all data provided for simple reason : - Most of the country in the word do not make any test and test only people when they knock at the door at hospital. - Almost all country are short of test and masks. - Some country cheat on data ( cf number of death in China). One independant media in Wuhan count the number of funeral urn avalaible to pick up and they were 3 to 4 times higher than ther number of official deaths...) Regarding the way country handle it, i think most of them do their best report to their capacity. If you dont have enough maks, then you will tell you compatriots that maks are not so important. IF you dont have enough test, you will tell them to stay home ... There is only 3 ways to deal with this : - Get enough people infected to protect the entire polutation ( some scientifist estimate at 60% + the level) - Get a efficient medicine, which is not the case at the moment event if there is some option. - Get a vaccine, which at least will happen in one hour ( and expectif the virus do not mute).... Whatever the option is, it will take time, at least months in the best of case... For our NBA, i will be happy of season can start in Obtober. I dont expect anything before. Stay safe guys, and Go grizz !!!

    In my opinion, the NBA is waiting on China to get their games resumed. However, I don't know when that'll happen, but it's a 50/50 shot they'll get some traction before the end of the month of April. The basketball league in China is the closest thing to the NBA (million dollar players, teams are in different cities, competitiveness, etc.) I do not believe the NBA will play this season. I would also say the NHL would arguably play first over the NBA because of Canada is doing better than the US in terms of Coronavirus. I don't believe playing basketball will be healthy for the players. They'll get no "true" offseason and it could effect older players (LeBron, Leonard, Paul George are examples) for the 2020-21 season. Put an asterisk on the 2019-2020 season. Also, players from the Cavaliers, Hornets, Knicks, and Timberwolves: there offseason started in January, they don't want to come back. The NBA is doing this to make sure there are fans are hopeful to return, but in reality, we will have to wait til October for any play.

    I get your point about the open air markets in China, where they have live and recently butchered animals. I don't think they eat a lot of bats. The bats infected a different animal sold in the markets. These animals were for sale while alive and breathing out the virus. They gotta find another way to feed themselves. The truth is out on masks. Initially, an attitude formed that a mask would not help the public. (Kinda like the attitude about mass testing.) There were always qualifiers on that recommendation. Like all the rosy forecasts had qualifiers that would allow the speaker later deny it and say the opposite. Specialty clinics have made profit tough for hospitals. They don't keep pandemic sized supplies of PPE for same reason their ICU space is limited. Money. The government would probably have to tell them to do it. We have a federal response for disasters, hurricanes and such. National agencies like FEMA direct the stockpiling. We have a national system to monitor and predict hurricanes. The US had that pandemic team and also a doctor in China whose job was to monitor pandemics. The pandemic team and the doctor in China were also fired a couple of years ago by this administration.

    Nah my Doctor is in extremely good health and been practicing for 40+ years. He understands science and biology and how Viruses work. He understood greatest danger was to people who smoked or had respiratory issues beforehand. Something majority of the population don't. Also you don't treat viruses and bacteria the same way. he recommended boosting your immune system with your diet and nutrition to prevent even catching it. Which is why he was frustrated by the entire thing and saw the problems coming before they did. They didn't have test back when Media was telling people to get tested. They didn't have protocols given to them when Media was telling everyone to go to see their Doctor for every little symptom. If you actually read the CDC reports on Flu vaccines you would know that the vaccinations never protect you from the current strain anyway. Nothing man-made is more powerful than your own immune system. Problem is majority of ours are compromised. Quote from CDC Vital Statistics Guidelines in regards to diagnosing COVID-19 deaths https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvss/vsrg/vsrg03-508.pdf "In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID–19 cannot be made, but it is suspected or likely (e.g., the circumstances are compelling within a reasonable degree of certainty), it is acceptable to report COVID–19 on a death certificate as “probable” or “presumed.” In these instances, certifiers should use their best clinical judgement in determining if a COVID–19 infection was likely. However, please note that testing for COVID–19 should be conducted whenever possible." This is why the stats can't be trusted when it comes to deaths and why Scientists are not all in agreement on the severity of the situation. Once again i believe the virus is real but i do not believe everything being reported about it (even its origin).

    Google has illegally captured all data on all of us. What do ya'll think they are doing with that or why do you think they need it? Gov't have been contracting private companies for years to circumvent the human rights laws. Of course they are going to make it seem harmless. Don't fall for it.
  20. GrizzTigerFan

    What are you watching in place of sports?

    No i do get it and i am extremely frustrated that they already do it. However, there are still thin laws in place that prevent them from utilizing that information against you criminally (for now) without the proper warrants. Those restrictions are being stripped away. Are you aware that if you are accused of being a terrorist in US you can be detained without trial indefinitely!?!?! That clear violation of Constitution was part of the Patriot Act. Obama used that law to lock up countless so called Whistleblowers. Once again clear violation of our rights. As a Black Man i would think you would be the last person that is okay with this. Your ancestors were consistently victimized by the Governing Authorities abuse of laws. Nixon created the "War on Drugs" to incarcerate Blacks (in his own words). Using similar tactics that are being deployed today during this "crisis". I am telling ya'll this ain't simply about some virus. Please pay attention to the civil liberties and Constitutional rights being taking away. All in the name of "Protecting Us".

    The "mask" issue you talk about is actually mismanagement by the people that run every hospital. Just prior to this pandemic, if you asked anyone in the medical field about the possibility of a pandemic, they all knew it was just a matter of time. It was when and not if. They had been talking about "disease X" for decades and knew it was just a matter of time. They ran drills after 9/11 and again after the ebola thing, dealt with SARS, yet still failed to properly prepare. Prior to this thing, not one doctor, nurse, or hospital administrator said "gee, we need to have more PPE on hand, just in case". All other public services are prepared (or have plans) for disasters, but not our hospitals. Of course, none of this crap would have happened if certain folks didn't EAT BATS. Dang, who would have ever thought that eating bats would be a bad thing?????

    Was your doctor smoking a cigarette when he said that? I guess he is also opposed to flu shots. Just let it run its course. (But I'll bet your doctor was vocal on protecting the health care system from "death panels.") 15% of the infected have no symptoms. All infected begin exhaling virus a day or two before showing symptoms. Testing is like the mask issue, both in scarcity and veracity. We had a 3 month headstart on this thing. Is our leader still saying that everyone who wants a test can get one? Due to scarcity, that is a dangerous lie. Testing those who feel the need takes away capacity to test the very sick. (If you only tick a few of the boxes, no test for you. Or if you're lucky and get tested, your swab goes to the lab that takes 10 days to return a result.) In some places medical staff are reusing protective equipment. A 3 month headstart. Everyone should be tested multiple times. We wasted those 3 months because some folks believe that science is just another protection racket. Its fine to listen to science when it tells you to buy Greenland due to melting ice but don't listen to your pandemic team. Well you can't listen to that team. You fired them a couple years ago because they were a waste of money.

    You don't get it. Private technology and big data companies are already doing that. Are you as paranoid and upset with private technology companies as you are with the government? I'm not apathetic. I'm realistic. All of this stuff that people are so afraid of the government doing is already being done by private technology companies and they are making money off of you, off of your location, off of your private data. I'm more upset with that than i am the government. And what makes you think they aren't giving that data to the government? THEY ARE. There is no privacy anymore. If you have SIri or Google Assistant or Google Home or Amazon Alexa, it's listening to everything you say and do. Everything that you do on your computer is tracked, everything with your smartphone is tracked. These web browsers (Google, Microsoft) share your data and search results with Facebook, Amazon, etc There is no privacy and these technology and big data companies know more about you than you know about yourself. As far as police go, lol. i'm a Black man in America. That's been happening to us.
