I have watched Marcus Morris many times when he was with Boston. He was not one to scrupulously stay within the rules then, and I doubt he has changed. I will say that Doc Rivers would not have encouraged him to injure Doncic, and I believe that Rivers would have pulled him from the game had he thought it intentional.

I don't quite understand what Pacers wanted from Nate McMillan. With the injuries he had to deal with and a lack of talent otherwise, he did well. If a change in style is what they want, why don't they just say so? As is pointed out in the linked article, their on-court personnel won't readily adapt to the Houston model. A complete makeover would be necessary.

Listen, you don't just go around firing ex-Woofies for no good reason. This will bite them on the ass like a pack of wolves from North Carolina. Besides, who are Jacoby and Phil supposed to hang out with now?

If he's not available, I believe Lara Trump is also an alum.

So proud to be NC born and raised that she even named a child after her home state.

However, the child's name is not Tar Heel Trump.

Cackalacky Trump doesn't really have much of a ring to it either.

In the current moment, wouldn't that be akin to naming the child after Jerry Falwell Jr.?

The follies of Falwell have become so prevalent in the news that I was scared Montrezl Harrell would call Luka Doncic a bitch ass pool boy by mistake.
