I have read no less than 5 articles about him changing his number.....that’s hyping it. And I was wondering why is it news worthy? He’s done it at least three times before. But I’ll drop it because it’s clear that it’s not worth discussing.
Sounds like you’re a glutton for punishment reading five articles about something you don’t care about.

Personally, I don’t have an issue with news outlets reporting things that happen.

As surely you’ve noticed whether traditional print media, online only media, social media, aggregate sites and so on, there is a 24/7 “ news“ cycle that runs of off filling space with “content”. That space has to be filled daily even hourly to keep the machinations of those sites and business models flowing in a direction of clicks, eyeballs, and ad revenue. From the stupidest, most inconsequential things to the actual big events and issues, everything gets over killed , copycatted, and overhyped. Especially anything involving one of the sports media golden gooses like LeBron, who so many people either love or love to hate.

So basically, like Derek said, you have to be your on pan filter and only choose to read or look at what you think is interesting or newsworthy to you.

Surprised to see the Bucks favored by 3.5 tonight. I know it’s at home for them but based on the first two games it really doesn’t seem like they’ll win a single game

tbh you should probably stop reading and posting about things you don't care about. Does not sound like a recipe for satisfaction in life, but thats just me caring about you. aint I nice ?

If the Nets come back from 21 down and build a lead they’ll have ripped the Bucks heart out and it will be all over. Budenholzer gets fired if they go down in 4

Nets play like an all star team but better because they have role players

I'd like to see the Bucks advance and don't care for the Nets at all. But from what I'm seeing the Bucks ain't got enough still. And although I like Giannis this guy is over rated. He doesn't have enough of the whole package.
And the Nets, you got to give them their due I guess.

Speaking of bad at shooting, if Joe Harris had hit any reasonable share of his wide open shots this game the Nets would have a comfortable lead

Neither team is going to break 100. This is the kind of low scoring game people said they missed right?
