It was in the mid 30’s before the last minutes of garbage time.
It still doesn’t make sense that so many people think the Milwaukee Bucks are just Giannis. They might not have another superstar but every single player in their rotation can play at a high level and fit perfectly around Giannis.
Annual reminder that there are no benefits to having anyone in your starting lineup, but there are drawbacks. If something catastrophic happens during your bye week (think Alex Smith leg injury), you can drop the guy immediately and play the handcuff lotto. Additionally, if you have an average kicker, just drop him now and hoard lotto tickets.
In theory, your just adding more weight (i.e. resistance) to your load. Why not just throw on a couple more smaller plates to each side? Am I missing something or are people just clout chasing?
Edit: Thank you to all of your responses. I think between everyone's contributions, I have a fairly good understanding of it's practicality and use. I look forward to checking out the various documentaries/podcasts you recommended.
Chandler Parsons is currently being paid $25.1M to sit on the Hawks bench. This is after he was paid similar amounts in previous seasons for little to no playing time.
I don't think there is any player in NBA history that has finessed so much money from NBA teams at such high value contracts, after giving little to no production throughout their career. It amazes me that this guy has made over 125 mil for doing almost nothing throughout his career except for showing potential.
Has there ever been someone that has finessed the NBA teams this hard before with their contracts?

Sixers were up only 1 when he came back into the game in the 2nd half and Thybulle lit a huge spark off the bench!

There is a big debate in my league on whether I should be removed from the playoffs, banned from the league or if this was completely permissible gamesmanship. What do you think?
Here's what happened...
We use yahoo as our platform. However, we manually track the standings so that we can use the victory point based standings, the same way ffpc does.
Here are the rules:
During the regular season, every time you win a head-to-head matchup, you will be awarded 2 VPs.
Every week, the top 4 teams in total fantasy points in that given week will be awarded 2 VPs. Additionally, teams 5 through 8 in total fantasy points in that given week will be awarded 1 VP.
The standings will be ordered from the team with most VPs (first place) to the team with the least VPs (last place).
Our regular season standings tiebreakers are the following:
1. Your record against every team, had you played them every week ("Breakdown")
*2. Total fantasy points accumulated over the course of the... keep reading on reddit ➡

The Rockets now have a -15.3 net rating when Russell Westbrook is on the floor and James Harden is on the bench.
Chris Paul had a +13.5 net rating without Harden in 2017-2018.
+10.4 in 2018-2019.
In 2017, Houston had a +3 net rating when Harden was on the bench.

HIS OLDER SISTER had seen it in him as a child. His father and even Red Auerbach had identified it as his career was taking off. Jordan loved to entertain the crowd. His relationship with the audience was growing in ways that those around him struggled to fathom, including the university scholars who had begun to study him as a force in popular culture.
Yet even as he ceded his existence over to the public domain, there remained much that Jordan kept hidden. He did this willfully, out of his growing instinct for self-preser... keep reading on reddit ➡
For those that have made it this far there is a lot of decision making to do within the next week. As the title suggest, some studs haven’t been living up their value and you may just be starting them for their name value. Just a quick few that come to mind are Saquon, Kamara, Mahomes, Obj, Keenan, A Rodgers etc. you can even make a strong case for sitting Julio. Anyway, as we go into the first stage of week 15 prep, who are you leaning towards benching on your rosters?
6MOTY has basically become the "20 ppg defensive liability of the year" award in recent years. Who are some 6MOTY worthy bench players who aren't just volume scorers?

It seems that chess is not the only game he makes insane calculations in... soon he’ll be world #1 in both chess AND fpl.
Seriously. How is he so damn consistent with all of his plays? Search his house for a time travel machine somewhere, I guarantee he has one.

I have no plans of ever competing in any sport... Just want to look good and feel strong outside the gym
Is it worth it to go beyond a 225 bench, 315 squat and 405 deadlift for the average Joe?
Should I just stop adding weight and focus on maintaining these strength standards (or maybe just increase reps)?
Here is Heat's official statement for Dion Waiters' suspension:
> "There were a number of unacceptable incidents this week, culminating with his unprofessional conduct on the bench last night," Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement Saturday, via Yahoo Sports' Keith Smith. "As a consequence, I feel we had to suspend him."

I mostly play ARAMs and, owning every champion, I get a reroll every game, meaning I often have rolls to spare when I'm given a champion I want to play. I like to use these rolls for the team, increasing the variety of champions we have (ideally someone gets a champion they enjoy as a result), but currently this means I have to give up my own champion for a moment before I can take it back, making it a 50/50 whether someone else takes the champion and refuses to trade it to me.
It's a bit annoying that trying to give something to the team puts me at risk of not getting to play the champ I currently have and want to play, so I would like to suggest adding a "roll" to bench feature in ARAM where you spend a roll but get to keep your champ, instead adding a randomly rolled champ (from your pool of owned/free champs) to the bench.
He could literally still be playing in the league right now. Between him and Dubas, Toronto is going all in on young management.
BTW, only Colliton in Chicago is younger.
As it rides up it feels as if the band that connects my pec to my arm is sticking out. I'm certain that when I get to this point I have a few reps left in me. This always happens with only my left shoulder, and I'm wondering if its a sign of an imbalance.
I've been having lots of trouble making progress with my bench and I wonder if this is part of why.
