Full quotes from The Athletic article this morning:
"One unexpected winner from the Harden trade? Oklahoma City. The 2021 Brooklyn-Houston pick swap now becomes part of a larger, wilder pick scenario involving Miami, and Oklahoma City, which gets the two best picks out of each of those four teams' first rounders (although Houston's pick is top-four protected). Houston gets the third-best as long as its pick is outside the top-four, and Brooklyn gets the worst pick.
Similarly, in 2025, Houston's pick in top-10 protected. If it's outside of the top 10, Oklahoma City will receive the best pick out of Houston, Brooklyn and its own selection. Houston will get the second-best, Brooklyn will get the worst. With Houston seemingly about to enter a rebuild and that 2025 Brooklyn pick having upside, Sam Presti's wheeling and dealing just became that much more valuable."
Underrated MJ accomplishment: from his first all-D selection on (87-88, when he won DPOY, MVP, ASG MVP, Dunk Contest, led the league in scoring averaging 35.0 on 60,3 TS%, 6,5 more than league average, led the league in steals (3.2) and became one of the only 3 players (him, pip, hakeem) to record at least 200 steals and 100 blocks, 4th highest season for PER, 1st VORP ever, 9th WS ever, 2th BPM ever, to then go on to beat the cavs averaging 45/5/5 on 63% TS) he was always selected for first team all-nba and all-defensive, except his wizards years and 94-95 where he played only 17 rs games.
This is pretty crazy
Hello! I’m Chris Fowler, college football play-by-play commentator for ABC’s Saturday Night Football. I’ll be calling one of the College Football Playoff Semifinals (Jan. 1) and the College Football Playoff National Championship (Jan. 11) next month on ESPN.
I spend football season crisscrossing the country, and I’ve called games this fall featuring Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Georgia, Oklahoma, Northwestern, North Carolina, Miami and more.

Feel free to AMA!
EDIT: Gotta run, Reddit! I had a fun time! Thank you all for the questions (especially the ones about tequila and metal music) and here's to a great playoff. We’ll see you on New Year's Day!
Here is how things will go this year for Bowl Selection Sunday. Note that we will also have a full schedule for the bowl season itself. This is only for Selection Sunday.
##Bowl Announcement Thread Formatting/Rules
Effective last year, we require the thread titles be in a specific format for bowl game pairings.
This format will be:
><Team 1> and <Team 2> to play in the <Bowl Game>
>South Central Louisiana State University and University of Louisiana to play in the Bourbon Bowl
Each thread will also only cover one bowl game. Even if the source is announcing multiple bowls, we want to allow for each bowl to be discussed independently of each other. Any posts that list two or more bowls simultaneously will be removed.
##New Year's Six Bowl Games
This year, 8 different threads for the New Year's Six Bowls will be posted by /u/CFB_Referee. The Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl are the CFP semifinal games this year whereas the Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, and Peach Bowls are the non-CFP NY6 games.
Other threads for these bowls will be removed.

(I may have missed someone. I put these in very general order, although I didn't put a ton of thought into it. There are a handful of players having very solid seasons but not good enough when you look at all the other players putting up numbers. Guys like Tobias Harris, Tyler Herro, Darius Garland, etc)
Only 12 players can make the All-Star roster, but here are 25 players putting up great numbers. Most seasons there are at least a couple injury replacements, but this season there is no game being played so it wouldn't really make sense to have replacements. That means a couple more snubs than usual.
Team record will probably come into play bigtime, fair or not. If two guys are putting up similar stats, you're probably going to give the edge to the player on the winning team. We are going to see a handful of guys putting up crazy numbers and... keep reading on reddit ➡
I made this website that enables you to view spotify tracks and if you choose to log in, your library as well. You'll see the key, tempo of tracks and if you click on a song title it will give you key, tempo, time signature, for each section of the song. You can make track selections and export them to playlists
UPDATE as of January 15 2021: u/DanCenFmKeys, u/guitarguy11695, i implemented a new feature that gathers a second analysis from another api i found, also added the option to use values from that second analysis in place of spotify values for the track selection. u/Mexican_Programmer I implemented your suggestion to fade the colors a bit on the analysis modal, thanks. ( if you aren't seeing the updates, you may need to Hard Refresh )
big shout out to u/FIuff " I can see my albums and search for songs, but I just get a blank white page when I try and search my playlists?" --- they found a bug i was able to fix, it was a minute edge case that was breaking the page, i wouldn't have been aware had they not mentioned it
u/DanCenFmKeys said "often gets keys wrong by a fourth, so like if a song is in C the site will say F instead of C" --- This is a good insight and i could make it so the app will modify the key by 4 if its confidence rating is low and suggest that to the user
u/guitarguy11695 "Do you think there could be a way to implement user-submitted correction advice/input? I, among other users, appreciate the confidence bar and therefore “human like” feel to it. I think it’d be a cool idea to be able to tap on certain red/orange sections ( the green ones probably not need be messed with, if I’m understanding correctly?) and suggest an edit for the key, etc. Maybe have it go through some kind of two-layer double check or something for accuracy? " --- excellent, I could definitely implement this
u/Mexican_Programmer "A bit of a suggestion tho, you might want to change the color scheme and perhaps add some fading to the analysis confidence window. It's kinda hard on the eyes imo." --- v good suggestion, im working with HSL colors to have a gradient between red/green that doesn't have any colors outside of red/orange/yellow/green. I could fade the colors so they aren't as bright. I agree that it is pretty intense ( NOW IMPLEMENTED )
u/SubbDeep " I wish Spotify had a "note" feature for tracks in playlist... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not much to be said here just curious if I’m the only one but the energy hand cannon selection is just bad. Why is it full of 140 and 180? Can we please have a 120? Doesn’t even have to be the best thing since pre patched Vex Mythoclast I’m just wanting one that’s decent so I have a reason to use my new adept astral.
Partially inspired by /u/glitter_explosion ‘s post re: the plastic glitter (PET) in the Auric Smoke Reflect Eyeshadow shade (not sure if I can link or x-post from another sub), as cited from Christine/Temptalia’s review.
For me, just one particle-induced abrasive eye injury was enough trauma to forever hard-pass on "questionably eye-safe plastic glitter" eyeshadow. Full stop. I also deal with similar plastics/solids of this scale in my line of work, and these little flaky bastards are actually no joke and can do serious damage to their surroundings. (glaring at you and your shitty pressed PET glitters, Colourpop ಠ_ಠ)
Lately, I've used ingredients data to be more mindful of purchasing new releases in the absence of store testers and samples. In particular, I've tabled buying new products with predominantly unfamiliar ingredients (to me) for the near future, while nearly all of my base products (primer, foundation, etc.) have been replaced and homogenized over time to be compatible with each other formula-wise.
Do you guys actively avoid any individual ingredients or compounds for any reason (ethical, medical, etc.)? Or, barring any allergies or adverse reactions, do you prefer to assess the performance of the product as the sum of its parts?
(Ninja Edit/Unrelated note: Well now my wallet will be happy. I had planned on getting maybe one or two of the Smoke Reflect eyeshadows, but now my brain has fully locked in to associating the Auric brand with glittery plastic pokey eyeshadow that will inevitably wreak havoc on my eyeballs and charge me $39 each to do it. Sigh. You win again, Anxiety.)
Man, I gotta say. I often see posts here about how people want "x" item or "x" skin that was in the atom shop, but no longer available with no return in sight. I can't blame them, I have a few wishes myself.
I really don't understand why Bethesda rotates stuff out of the store (except holiday stuff, that's understandable to a degree.) Surely they would make more money if their cash shop just had all the items available all of the time. I don't know if they use FOMO a short term strategy, but surely its would be more wise to just forever sell an item because anybody they didn't scoop up in the initial FOMO push is still a potential customer missed.
They also do this in Elder Scrolls Online (well it's Zenimax, but Bethesda seems to have taken notes considering ZOS helped with 76). There's a house in that game I've wanted for 3 years since it was first sold, costs nearly $150 in my country to buy it.... but I can't. Imo only a fool denies a 150 dollar sale for no real reason.
It drives me insane when I have cash in hand, and I can't even throw it at the money thirsty developers. I can't believe I'm asking this, but please make it easier to spend money by making stock available. The demand is there, the supply is being limited...
Bring it on Bethesda, come on.
EDIT: Wow, I think this is my biggest reddit post ever, didn't realize I'd stoke this much conversation. Thanks to all of you for coming out and discussing. Also thanks for the reddit Gold to the kind Redditor out there who gifted it to me.
