Wow, that 15 second clip showed me everything I needed to see about the NBA.


That clip is comical but it's interesting how the NBA is the only sport people exclusively talk about it to trash it.

Not even close.  2/3rds of the NBA teams basically exist to feed the desirable teams.

Sounds like the Wizards and Capitals are staying in DC.

 

https://theathletic....izards-potomac/

 

The agreement between [Ted] Leonsis and [DC Mayor Muriel] Bowser includes provisions for:

  • Monumental to receive $500 million in cash from the city to renovate Capital One Arena, which opened in 1997.

  • $15 million more to improve the alley that connects the arena to the Gallery Place building next door.

  • The addition of 200,000 square feet of space in the arena and the Gallery Place building.

  • Safety improvements, including the presence of 17 Washington police officers to patrol the arena area from two hours before game time to two hours after game time

  • Monumental gaining full control of the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Southeast Washington, enabling Monumental to enlarge player spaces and make changes to the arena’s schedule. The WNBA’s Washington Mystics and G League’s Capital City Go-Go will continue to play at the arena, but Monumental will have the ability to move four games per regular season and all playoff games to Capital One Arena.

  • New restrictions on noise, loitering and vending around Capital One Arena.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Almost makes you wonder if he knew it was going to fail and this was his plan to scare DC into what he wanted from the start.

 

Dunno if I want to give him that much credit, but just interesting where it ended up.

 

Now the question is does it impact DC's ability to redo the RFK site for a new stadium?

I can't imagine he went through the whole process of cutting a deal with the governor while knowing for certain it would never pass the legislature. I think the governor was just as surprised as Leonsis that his deal was shot down.

In general I'd like to agree, but Ted has never been a dumb guy, so it strikes me odd and out of character that after complaining about the specific things he got in this agreement, Bowser coming out and saying she learned a lot and is now on the same page as the DC counsel, and working with Youngkin, who has a rep for being a moron, that he would be that shocked.

 

Just weird that this deal happened so quickly on the heels of it falling apart, like they've been working on it the whole time and knew VA wasn't set in stone. I've seen weirder stuff happen in politics. Use the public to communicate and manipulate.
