I’m always the guy defending the players in situations like this. Hell I even wrote a 3 page paper in college defending The Decision by Lebron (but seriously, ESPN can run an hour-long tv special every year to announce the order of some ping pong balls, but the biggest free agent in NBA history raises over $3 million for charity in an hour and becomes the biggest villain in sports??). But what Draymond is saying just fundamentally does not make sense. Many of his issues seem to deal with media’s treatment of players, but since he stated that his problem is with how the NBA treats players, I’ll focus on that and leave the media for another discussion. Let’s go through each complaint one by one.
His first complaint is about the Drummond situation. If he’s upset that Drummond wasn’t told he’d be sitting out until right before the game, then that’s a valid (albeit minor) complaint. But he seems to be upset that they are publicly announcing that Drummond is available for trade and is being sat to avoid injury. Unless he wants to outlaw trades from the NBA completely (which would leave players stuck in bad situations as well), I don’t understand what he wants to change here. If a team knows that they’re trying to trade a player, it does not make sense for them to risk injury to that player.
His second complaint is about the treatment of Harden saying he was “castrated for wanting to go to a different team”. How exactly was Harden castrated or destroyed by the NBA? Outside of being fined for breaking COVID protocols, what did the NBA do to Harden? What exactly is he looking to change in this situation? Does he want players to be able to choose to sit out anytime they want a trade? Players already have the option to negotiate an early opt out in their contact if they’re unhappy with their situation. Does he want the ability to opt out of the contract at anytime? Because you can’t have a situation where contracts are fully guaranteed for the player, but not for the team, so you’d have to get rid of guaranteed contracts. What exactly does he want from the NBA here?
His next complaint is about how players are expected to remain professional and in shape despite pending or rumored trades. Uh..yeah? Again, unless you have a no trade clause, teams have a right to trade you. It’s a standard part of the business. Is he saying that players should have the right to not act like professionals if they’re about to be traded? Nah. Players should act like professionals even... keep reading on reddit ➡
As I gripped the detonator, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to sneak so much C4 into a school.
Pretty much ezreal is the only decently strong champ that builds them... there is no reason to nerf these items when stuff like seekers and bramble are allowed to exist in this game, all it does is discourage niche builds for AD champions
>be kobold gunslinger fighter, D&D 5e
>curse of strahd
>originally going to be human, but DM thinks they were boring
>I mention how I like the idea of a human who was raised around another species, as it can lead to interesting roleplay
>"what, so you can have the stats of a human but still get to roleplay as another race?"
>took the wind out of my sails to run human, so go with kobold
>won't satiate DM's need to make me out to be a powergamer, though
>want to take "piercing shot" as a trickshot
>When you make a firearm attack against a creature, you can expend one grit point to attempt to fire through multiple opponents. The initial attack gains a +1 to the firearm’s misfire score. On a hit, the creature suffers normal damage and you make an attack roll with disadvantage against every creature in a line directly behind the target within your first range increment. Only the initial attack can misfire.
>ask DM what counts as "directly behind" when fighting on a grid, since the grid is merely an abstraction, unlike previous editions where it's more literal
>guess that if the shot just clips the corner of a square it won't count, but perhaps if it passes through two opposite edges of the square it might
>he says that from the point of origin of the shot, only creatures in squares whom the shot passes dead-center through will count, like mathematically dead-center
>alright, I asked and he's the DM so fair enough
>I don't take it, thinking it's too situational and won't be much fun to use given the ruling, he acts like I'm being a powergamer again
>nevermind the fact I've taken multiple optional debuffs, including forgoing having my gun be magical despite an enchantment placed on it, in an effort to justify purchasing silvered ammunition to make things more interesting, and kept the -2 STR for kobolds even after Wizards removed that debuff -- also taking a flaw that makes my character afraid of humanoid undead, in an undead themed campaign.
>kobolds have pack tactics
>You have advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of your allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn't incapacitated.
>try to shoot at enemy grappling an ally, about to roll with advantage, but DM says no that doesn't count because they can't move
>"yeah but they can still take actions, incapacitated is a specific status effect"
>"but the... keep reading on reddit ➡
She packed up her bags and right.
Just my thought on what I will be doing from here on in.
I'd bet there are numerous setups in play right now to change, blur, manipulate, mislead and outright lie about the true narrative on this sub by these crooked hedgies who appear to have their hand in the cookie jar. It's looking more and more like they have been selling cookies that don't exist. It is is starting to look like way more cookies have been sold than could ever possibly fit in the cookie jar
Not financial advice. I'm so bad at finance. That only a fool would listen to me. It took me over a month just to learn how to spell GME
