    Based on the Christmas Day ratings, seems like most of the NBA fanbase has died, too.
    I think there's 2 things

    1. Nobody under 30 pays for cable anymore. The games are being watched online, or worse, in a 60 second hi light clip and a few tweets read.

    2. Nobody has any emotional attachment to the NBAs most famous mercenaries moving to the Clippers, Lakers, and Nets. None of it feels authentic, and the Clippers and Nets don't have any fans to begin with. People are sick of Durant, Lebron and Kawhi hopping around the league like well paid hookers. The NBA is at its best when it has heros (Jordan, Duncan, early Curry) and villains (Lebron super teams, late era Warriors)...right now it has neither really.

    "Jonas Valanciunas scored 21 points, Jaren Jackson Jr. added 20 and the Memphis Grizzlies held onto the lead this time against Oklahoma City, beating the Thunder 110-97 Thursday night in the second meeting between the teams in eight days.

    The burly ("burly"??) Valanciunas went 9 of 11 from the field and fueled an 8-0 run early in the fourth quarter that essentially put the game away."

    What an idiot. You're only worried about imperial vs metric if your only goal is to have your kids be American as fuck. If you're worried about them being successful, then metric is much better to learn (physics, foreign affairs, what have you).

    it's funny as canadians we all learned metric in school but we still use imperial conversationally with competence (sports use yards and feet, as does snow and rain, height and weight for humans is inches and pounds) and that was just passed down naturally. Really every curriculum worldwide should be teaching metric. But I digress.
    Idiot... is being generous. Antonio Davis missed a golden opportunity to provide his kids with a foundation and confident self-image for life, where they don't feel like second class citizens. I hope y'all are enjoying Trump's 'Murricah.

    Dwane Casey summed it up perfectly:

    Thank you for teaching our all-American family the Canadian way. That being polite and considerate to one another is always the best way. That diversity is something to be embraced and celebrated. That taking the time to learn about each other’s cultures is the surest way to find common ground and understanding. Thank you for making our children feel safe, valued, and comfortable in their own skin. We cannot express how important it has been to build the foundations of who our children are as human beings in a country that shows through its words, actions and laws that all people deserve basic human rights, and a chance to reach their goals through education and hard work.
