    Some people are calling it profiling. But, ever see crowd in Oakland? About as diverse as it gets for events with pricey tickets.

    Damn, that's a bit steep for me but I was spoiled as fuck when Faried was on the Nuggets and going to games with his pops.

    Off topic, interesting the o/u at tip-off was 212.5 and the score 112-100 before the final 2 FTs that pushed it over.

    not saying its profiling, but looking at the video, the cop was being a hard ass. and if you look here hes got the credential Name:  raptors.jpg

    Hitting a cop is a serious offence ( just ask Will Hunting) if there are no charges filed I think we will know who was in the wrong.

    I do think it is shitty that every news outlet is framing it as NBA exec assaults cop.

    who knows if that is the proper "credential" and who knows when he got that. Maybe he had it all along, but didn't think he needed to show it in the excitement of the moment, and responded aggressively when the cop didn't just let him in? Maybe someone gave it to him to settle the dispute? And all reports are that it wasn't really a punch, but a shoving match of sorts (where a hand may have struck the cop). And no, if nothing happens it doesn't mean Ujiri was in the right, it could just be cooler heads prevailing and nobody wanting a big deal to be made of this when it was all heat of the moment stuff at a crazy time, regardless of who was "right".

    Seems interesting that it is you who wants to make some big deal of this. I watched the video and couldn't tell a thing, they both looked steamed, but you seem to be able to tell that the cop was an asshole and it was a racial incident. Why?

    Didn’t see the video. Thanks for sharing. Guess the entire context will come out later.

    I’ve been a security person at arena events and it can get really confusing and stressful in a large crowd.

If granted, the disabled player exception allows a club to sign a replacement player for 50% of the injured player’s salary, or for the amount of the non-taxpayer’s mid-level exception, whichever is lesser.
    Interesting. I didn't know that was a thing, but it makes sense.

    No way. Chase Center is opening and it's going to be a scene, and still expensive as fuck. Plus, they still have Curry and while they won't be competing for a ring, should still be fun to watch even if they only win 40-something games.

    FWIW, there's another video circulating of the Raptors’ Masai Ujiri holding his credential in the tunnel just prior to the end of the game.



    Totally unrelated, the Jeremy Lin game 3 highlight tape:

    Yeah, but he didn't return to the bench to watch the end of the game. Wyeaster calls it a total prima-donna move. That Klay Thompson, always just thinking about himself. Did you hear about the time Nurkic returned to the bench and lifted the teams spirits?

    Power tripping little dipshit police officer is my take. Premature of course, but that's how I roll. Not to mention Ujiri is black...
    I'd like to be wrong here BTW.

    Good question but Oakland is diverse. Probably would support not calling majority shareholders “owners.”

    So one time circa 1991-1992, I came down from my nosebleed upper bowl season ticket seats and bird dogged some seats about 10-12 rows behind the Dubs’ bench and sat down next to this elegantly dressed African American couple.

    Woman turns to me and says, “You know, we’ve had these seats for 15 years.”

    I say, “I’ll bet. These are fantastic.”

    She says, “You know whose seats you’re in? Those are the mayor’s seats.” (Elihu Harris - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elihu_Harris)

    At that time, you could sneak down there. They’re a lot edgier now. I wouldn’t even try.

    If he had the credential and showed it and the guy wouldn't let him on the court, fuck that guy!

    But if he had the credential and refused to show it in the heat of the moment, then fuck him, because then the cop was doing his job. Everyone these days talks about player security, and part of that is showing your credentials at a crazy moment. There have been incidents in the past during playoff celebrations, security should be vigilant and shouldn't be expected to know who he is.

    Kyle Kuzma is an asshole. Those citing “karma” (incorrectly, BTW) should be careful...

    Better tell David Lee that in addition to being part of the bitch ass Spurs squad that lost a 20+ point lead, he’d better watch his ass in retirement for failing to get his damn foot outta Kawhi’s way and fucking up his ankle before the Zaza play...

    Adonal Foyle had an interesting postgame observation and directed some shade at Jordan Bell for starting game 1 but being listed as DidNotPlay, coaches decision in game 6. Sounds like some locker room drama w JB lacking maturity and accountability
