so Kyrie still can't play in boston.

averaged 14ppg on something like 34% and 17% from 3 shooting

On the other hand, he did help to bring us Banner 18.
Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much--the wheel, New York, wars and so on--whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.

But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man--for precisely the same reason.

All of that information is factually accurate, but for me it just proves my point that "franchise" is nothing more than a legal construct that few people beyond lawyers care about. Do OKC fans really care about Sonics stuff? Not that I've heard. Would Angelenos care about the Minneapolis Lakers history if Minny hadn't won any titles? I very much doubt it.

And I don't think that things should hinge on whether a team changes its name. The current Hornets got the original Hornets stuff because they changed from Bobcats to Hornets? So if they'd stayed the Bobcats, they wouldn't have gotten the original Hornets stuff? Just a very weird way to decide the issue, IMO. The NBA should at least be consistent: In every case, either the history follows the "franchise," or it doesn't.
Oh sure, I'm just providing some context around why it's arbitrary and inconsistent - because, as you say, it's entirely arbitrary and inconsistent. The biggest factor appears to be the circumstances surrounding the team's departure from the area (or, more cynically, the continued presence of a fanbase).

Got it. Thanks!

Millions of YouTuber accounts, I know.

But this dude's analysis of JB/JT symmetry is satisfying. Especially the last play analyzed.

I just want to say, it feels so so good to be world champions. It felt due. And now we can bask in it all throughout the summer while everyone else is crying and hating  :angel:

It feels so good to have a bit of a relaxing offseason and being able to look at the Draft and FA without much "pressure" or annoyance from the previous postseason run not netting Banner 18
