The Rock came out 25 years ago today. I’ve proven once and for all that it is a James Bond movie.

TL;DR: I’ve proven beyond a shadow of a doubt the long-running fan theory that Michael Bay’s The Rock is the last chapter of Sean Connery’s run as James Bond 007, and have come up with a full narrative that is completely consistent with the continuity of the six Connery Bond films, Connery’s backstory in The Rock, and actual world history.

If you’d rather watch a video than read a 3000 word essay on Reddit, then you can do that here: https://youtu.be/9FdnevXjqdc

***

The Rock was released on 7 June 1996 – exactly 25 years ago (greetings from New Zealand time). To mark this anniversary, I decided to go through the evidence – in WAY too much detail – that supports the fan theory that Sean Connery’s character in The Rock (John Mason) is James Bond. You have probably seen the odd article about it like this one, or this Reddit thread, or this entry on FanTheories.com, but trust me when I say that NO ONE has looked at this theory in this much detail and there is WAY more evidence than people think.

Plot refresher

The Rock is the second feature film directed by Michael Bay. It’s about a decorated US war veteran Francis Hummel stealing a bunch of chemical weapons, taking hostages on Alcatraz, and holding the US Government to ransom until reparations are paid to the families of the soldiers who died under his command.

FBI Director Jim Womack and the Department of Defence enlist the services of convict and former British special forces operative John Mason to help the Navy Seals break into Alcatraz, using his knowledge of the prison from when he broke out of it in 1963. Mason teams up with chemical weapons expert Nicholas Cage to break into Alcatraz and disarm the missiles before Hummel’s deadline.

The fan theory

Almost since this movie came out, there has been speculation that Sean Connery’s John Mason is in fact James Bond. This is usually based on some surface level lines about the fact that Mason was “trained … by British Intelligence,” that he was “a former SAS operative,” and the fact that he was captured in 1962 – the same year the first Bond movie (Dr. No) was released. The fan theory usually says that Bond’s escape from Alcatra

Court-side view after Chris Paul's "dirty" play against LeBron James, shows LeBron grabbing his shoulder, getting up, falling to one knee and then limping off the court.

Source: https://streamable.com/fv8ksf

After Chris Paul tugged on LeBron James' shoulder on a box-out, LeBron James collapsed to the floor and stayed there while Cameron Payne and Montrezl Harrell got into a scuffle. LeBron James then got back up, held his shoulder as he walked to the sideline, fell to one knee, got back up and then acquired a seemingly out-of-no-where limp.

[Vardon] "LeBron James and Anthony Davis are not expected to play in the Tokyo Olympics, a source tells @joevardon. Steph Curry, per a source, is “50-50” on playing, while Damian Lillard is believed to have strong interest."

Original Article Here via The Athletic - Jayson Tatum could be the Team USA building block for Tokyo Olympics, with eyes on Dame Lillard and Steph Curry

>The NBA’s first round of the playoffs is complete, and a whole new crop of stars are now free to commit, or not, to Team USA for Tokyo. Tatum headlines that group, along with Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook of the Washington Wizards, and Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo of the Miami Heat. They join a pool that already included Stephen Curry of the Warriors, Zion Williamson of the Pelicans and Zach LaVine of the Bulls, among others.

> LeBron James and Anthony Davis are officially on vacation, after the Lakers lost in six games to Phoenix, but neither LeBron nor Davis is expected to play for Team USA due to their terrible seasons of injuries, according to a source close to both players. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are on the list, but their Clippers survived Game 7 against Dallas (which has no American stars in the Team USA pool) on Sunday — the final game of the entire first round.

>Curry, according to a source, is “50-50” on whether he takes his first crack at Olympic gold. Lillard is believed to have strong interest in playing, though no final decision has been made.

> ...

> Jaylen Brown missed this season’s playoffs after wrist surgery and is a “no” for Tokyo. Kemba Walker has said he is looking forward to a long, full offseason to heal his ailing knee, which would make him an unlikely candidate.

> If you’re wondering, Memphis’ Ja Morant and the Blazers’ CJ McCollum are not in the American pool of 57.

For the first time in his career, LeBron James has been eliminated in first round of the playoffs

LeBron James is currently in his 18th season in the NBA. In 16 of those 18 seasons, his team has made the playoffs. In the first 15 of those 16 playoffs seasons, his teams made it to the Conference Semifinals at worst. However, that will not be the case for the 16th playoff season he's a part of. By virtue of losing to the Suns tonight, LeBron and his Lakers have been eliminated in the First Round of the Western Conference Playoffs. History has been made.

For those wondering, this is how the other 15 playoff seasons went for LeBron:

2006: Eastern Conference Semis

2007: NBA Finals

2008: Eastern Conference Semis

2009: Eastern Conference Finals

2010: Eastern Conference Semis

2011-2018, and 2020: NBA Finals (won in 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2020)

So, not only did a LeBron team that made the playoffs fail to get past the first round for the first time in his career, it's also the first time since the 2010 Playoffs that a LeBron playoff team failed to at least reach the Finals.

LeBron James:

> It's all fun and games until the 🐰 got the gun! 😡😤😡😤👑

Jae Crowder:

> 🕺 AINT NO FUN WHEN THE RABBIT GOT THE GUN !! 12 MORE TO GO.!! BIG 99

Looks like the dancing emoji Crowder included is a reference to the show-boating he did that got him ejected in last night's stellar win against the Lakers.

Lebron James on if he would join Orlando in free agency: “They have no chance."

LeBron: "Anytime I hear Orlando right now I get PTSD."

Mav: "Orlando has no chance of free agency?" LeBron: "They have no chance."

Mav: "What if you get traded to Orlando." LeBron: "I'm not going. I'll just retire." https://twitter.com/ballislife/status/1398670093547102215?s=21

LeBron James take on the latest Columbus police shooting: "YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY"

I normally see posts about police brutality from people like Steve Kerr and others on this board on the front page, so I assume this thread will be allowed as well being that it is in text form.

I wonder if LeBron watched the full body cam video before tweeting out his thoughts, as I don't know if it's exactly the take that is necessarily the right one given what the video shows.

UPDATE: LeBron has now deleted the tweet about an hour after posting it.

[Oram] LeBron James on the play-in tournament: "Whoever came up with that shit needs to be fired."

LeBron doesn't seem too happy about the play in tournament. Seems like people are all for the play in tournament except when your team is involved. Similar to Luka/Cuban's comments a couple weeks ago

TIL that James K. Polk is the only US president who pledged to serve only one term during his campaign. He was known for fulfilling all his major promises and died 3 months after his term ended, making his retirement the shortest. He is also the only speaker of the house to be elected as president. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jam…

LeBron James said he was playing some of the best basketball of his career before he had a "grown man" dive into his legs.

I'm not a fan of this statement at all. Solomon Hill made a basketball play and that's that. This comment makes him come across as extremely petty.
