Lim Eng Beng, a legend in Philippine basketball, passed away on Monday after battling liver cancer for almost three years. He was 64 years old.
A sad day in basketball.
The Jazz vs Raptors game taught us three things: DeMar DeRozan has no regard for human life; Rudy Gobert is a Dragon Ball Z fan; and Rudy Gobert is still in the running for Twitter MVP.
Ten straight wins. The best start in franchise history. This is what happens when someone does something great like, say, win an NBA title, and people put them down by saying they just got “lucky.” But mostly, this is what happens when you have Wardell Stephen II, son of Dell.
LeBron James dropped yet another serving of his playoff-style triple double (37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists) while cramping up, on a bad knee, without Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.
