Unpacking the media driven Kyrie rumors

2021.09.22 19:50 TheBeginngAndEnd Unpacking the media driven Kyrie rumors

I wanted to highlight something brought up by Mike over at the fantastic Glue Guys podcast.
What is the common denominator with these unfounded Kyrie rumors? Besides the fact that it generates clicks and engagement on social media.
It’s LeBron and Klutch.
It isn’t a coincidence that Stephen A brings this up alongside ESPN’s #1 LeBron/Klutch defender, Kendrick Perkins. It isn’t a coincidence that these rumors took off after the only LeBron/Klutch mouthpiece as shameless as Perk, Nick Wright, tweeted it out. It’s also not a coincidence that the Lakers immediately signed Deandre Jordan after his contract was bought out.
This is all to say that the biggest looming threat to LeBron’s chances at title #5 is far and away the Brooklyn Nets. And if there’s anything we’ve learned about Klutch Sports over the last several weeks (between the Simmons fiasco and Nerlens Noel lawsuit), it’s that they will pursue any avenue, whether by media sock puppetry or basketball maneuvering, to protect their image, which is more or less the image of LeBron himself.
This is the world of professional sports, after all, where the best of the best are ultra competitive. Any advantage that LeBron can gain over a perceived threat will be taken. Deandre Jordan is functionally done as a high level contributing piece to an NBA team, especially one in pursuit of a championship. The only purpose he really serves to the Lakers, other than ostensibly as an end of bench reserve, is to provide insight about his former team and how they operate.
And what we see here with these totally unfounded Kyrie storylines is the media arm of Klutch trying to gain an advantage by creating drama that doesn't exist in reality. It does, however, provide them the opportunity to generate a rift within the Nets, should the Nets allow it to become one (they won't). Not to mention I think this makes it clear there is still definitely at least some degree of bad blood between LeBron and Kyrie.
Forgive me for being long winded about a topic that will almost certainly be forgotten a month from now when there's basketball being played, but I think its important for us to be able to differentiate and identify artificial "journalism" when we see it, and understand where it comes from.
The Nets are the villains in the eyes of the media talking heads. We've come a long way from being the laughing stock.

2021.09.22 19:50 Tomi_Bini [USA-CT/NY][H] 2018 iPad Pro 12.9-inch (Space Gray, Wi-Fi, 258GB), Smart Folio, Apple Pencil 2nd Gen [W] Local Cash

I am selling my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9-inch (Space Gray, Wi-Fi, 258GB). I purchased this in February 2020 from Apple Refurbished in perfect condition for college, and have only used it for school. It has only either been on my desk or in the laptop sleeve of my backpack. I purchased the folio case and the 2nd generation Apple Pencil both brand new.
As you can probably see from the images, everything is in amazing condition. I haven't used the ipad without the case and I put the screen protector on the day I got the ipad, so the back of the device doesn't have a single scratch.

Price below includes:

I am asking for $800 local cash for everything stated above, not looking to sell separately.

2021.09.22 19:50 bessi16 unusual very high scores in some quests

when going through quests i completed, i've seen that in some quests a very unusual score.For example in some pqs i've gotten scores of 40 thousands when the scores for z rank ultimate finish are around 10-15 thousands.even compared scores between my other characters and i've seen this happening at random missions.Never had the unusual very high scores at the same pq in two characters or more. It seems to happen randomly at some quest. So far only in PQs and Expert missions.For example in the 3rd expert mission with great ape Nappa when you z rank it with ultimate finish you get a score around 8-9 thousand points,i've gotten 21 thousand points which i find very funny because i dont know what makes it to give that score as i do basically the same requirements every mission.I'm curious if this has happened to somebody else here.

When I traveled to a variety island, no mobs had spawn at all in the island, thus making it a ghost Island.
When traveling game has a chance to freeze your character in place.
Maybe a fluke but the bike wont turn but only tilt.

2021.09.22 19:50 lightningmccoy I was fired for trivial things pre-pandemic and this entire job search has felt like I've had a scarlet letter

I was let for for minor things like not updating a calendar quickly enough and having a wrinkled shirt occasionally. Now I feel like I have to lie about it constantly. I either say I've never been fired and hope potential employers never look into or be honest and never be hired. It's making an already stressful time and process so much worse. The idea that one position not being a good fit means I can't get another is insane to me.

2021.09.22 19:50 chris-arroyo Amazon Music apesta 😷

Pues anoche decidí comprar varias cosas en Amazon y vi que si tomaba la prueba gratis de Amazon Prime, me ahorraba más de 100 mxn de envío, y dije va.
Descargué las apps de Amazon Prime Video y de Amazon Music. De la de video no me quejo, funciona bien, aunque tiene poco contenido que me llame la atención, pero como tengo HBO Max, pues solo le sacaré provecho a ver este mes las 3 cosas que me llamaron la atención y luego cancelaré.
Lo que si me decepcionó cabrón es Amazon Music. Y usted, amable lector se preguntará porqué? Pues porque realmente es un tipo y en realidad hay que pagar una suscripción adicional para sacar todo su potencial.
Nunca me han gustado los servicios de música en streaming, por ende no pago por ellos, prefiero tener mis archivos mp3 en mi pc o cel y escucharlo cómo y cuándo yo quiera y no soportar playlists y/o artistas "recomendados" por una IA quesque según mis gustos. Por eso no uso Spotify, buscas un album completo y solo tiene 3 o 4 canciones y luego se sigue con rolas de otros artistas que nada que ver. Y no digamos sus odiosos comerciales o que en la app del cel no puedas elegir canciones en la version gratuita. Probé youtube music y me pareció incluso peor, ni un día pasó y ya había borrado la app, sí, así de fea está.
Y pensé que por ser AMAZON MUSIC un servicio integrado de Amazon, sería mucho más completa, pero no, está igual o más limitado que Spotify gratis, solo que sin comerciales.
Quieres oir una canción o disco en particular? SUERTE, ya que es muy probable que dicha canción o disco sea parte de la oferta de AMAZON MUSIC UNLIMITED y si no contratas ese SERVICIO ADICIONAL, no lo puedas escuchar. Intenté con varios artistas, discos y canciones y en la mayoría de los casos no puedo acceder al contenido por no contratat Music Unlimited. Y sí, te da 3 meses de prueba gratis, pero repito, no me gusta la música en streaming y que de inicio me limite lo que puedo oír, desde ya sé que no me interesa seguir usando los servicios de música y video de Amazon. Terminada mi prueba de un mes, cancelaré. Total compro tan poco en Amazon, que prefiero pagar envio cuándo lo necesite.
