Excellent new informational video on social distancing and contact avoidance now available featuring the Jaguars defense.

Promise them anything but give them the Fitz.

Vince Carter's Dunk of Death is all over Twitter this morning. It was interesting to read this 2015 story about the life of the player he death-dunked, Frédéric Weis.

The Knicks drafted him in the first round, he elected not to sign and play another year in France, and somehow the Knicks managed to never let him know they wanted him to play summer league for them the next two years even as he continued to make the French all-star game. They let a first rounder twist in the wind.

I mean, to be fair, if I were drafted by the Knicks I'd probably do all I could to avoid playing for them too.
