    I assume that there is some meaning to the name "Bol" in Sudanese?
    Google Translate says "Bol" in Sudanese means "testicles".

    Michael Beasley had his truck stolen out of his driveway


    Michael Beasley will be getting buckets, shooting long twos, and playing inconsistent defense for the New York Knicks next season (the analysis is just based on recent history).

    But first, he’d like to find his truck. Which was stolen.

    Well, I did see a Dodge Ram 1500 on the road today, but since I’m on the West Coast and I have no idea what color/year Beasley’s truck is, I’m going to assume the guy I saw didn’t perpetrate the heist.

    Still, that sucks for Beasley, even if he can easily afford to replace it.

    Kevin Durant responds to school handout telling kids to avoid being like him


    Kevin Durant is having a pretty good summer. He is obviously in a full on “I have a ring now” mode and is just battling everyone he can set his sights on. He’s confident, as he should be.

    Durrant responded to critical comments conservative commentator and ex-ESPNer Britt McHenry made about the Golden State Warriors forward not wanting to visit the White House should an invitation come for the team.

    Now, Durant has seen a handout that a teacher gave to kids in school comparing him and Michael Jordan. In the handout, it asks kids to refrain from being like Durant, asking them not to take the easy way out by cheating in class. Instead, it asks them to be more like Michael Jordan and not take shortcuts.

    That’s not even a correct interpretation of the facts, much less a very good analogy. Nevertheless, when SB nation published an article on an image of the handout on Twitter, Durant responded.

    Via Twitter:

    Firing might be a little harsh but perhaps the person who wrote this handout could put their hardcore sports allegiances away for a minute? Things like this and up on the Internet, you know?

    I'm not sure what's more pathetic, the note or Durant's response to it.

    It's ****** for a teacher to demean a decent human being to young kids like that but it's just as ****** for Durant to want the teacher thrown in jail for hurting his feelings. Get over yourself dude.

    Ugh, another season and off-season of Lebron drama coming. This will be big because wherever he decides to play, whether Cleveland or somewhere else, is the place where he'll pretty much be spending the rest of his relevant years.

    Gotta feel for Paul George, who won't have as much attention as he wants this offseason while he chooses his new team.

    But Sudanese isn't one of the languages in Google Translate. The language you saw was Sundanese, which is one of the many languages that is spoken in Indonesia. Sudan's national language is Sudanese Arabic but Manute Bol was born in South Sudan to a Dinka family which gave him a Dinka first name (Manute apparently means special blessing). Chances are that Bol is a Dinka surname as well so even if Sudanese Arabic was one of the languages in Google Translate it still wouldn't really help us.

    Sorry for nerding out but I love linguistics

    It's true that Greco-Turkish relations are usually strained but nationalism is one of the things I hate the most.

    Pizza guy is a UFA next season while Crowder is locked into a very solid deal for the next 3 seasons.

    Cs get Kyrie locked into a deal for the next 2 seasons.
