There was a day where there were more political threads than NBA available for comment.
I am sure everyone here has their own reasons for coming to the forum.
I come here to escape, Trump, guns and all of the "triggers" used by the media to get an emotional rise out of me.
My sports team doesn't talk about all of the horrors being circulated daily, they talk about the passion of, for us, rebuilding and climbing the mountain back to a title and all that entails. These players, our heroes, are not viewed in the political lens. They take us away from it and give us hope for another basketball victory.
Meanwhile, the news just wants to engulf me in despair as that is what they are paid to do.
BTW. I am old, so I can tell you this about the "news". In 1972, they were saying that era's version of all the world ending crap that is on today and none of it came true.
