I'm sure someone has brought this up, but I was always confused why when that story came out nobody seemed to think the opposing team wouldn't just leave back a defender ala hockey/soccer/etc., especially to potentially front the pass. Instead all the writers seemed to be arguing about the advantage of an extra man on offense, which I think would be less of a problem of having an unguarded man shooting and more of not being able to as easily box out the fifth player. Teams already have plenty of experience guarding possessions with a single weak side man in a zone and two or more offensive players not even involved in it.

edit: Actually, perhaps ironically, a center like Boogie gives you arguably the same advantage as that 4-on-5 scheme if he doesn't have to run block to block but instead plays outside. That's why the Bucks can play five out with Brook Lopez, or why Channing Frye is still in the league.

Now I'm having flashbacks to when I used to check up on Dave Berri's blog, where every post was some variation of "Conventional wisdom says that Joel Przybilla is an unremarkable player. This shows that everybody involved in decision-making in the NBA is an idiot, because he has the highest Wins Produced since Dennis Rodman and has single-handedly won 15 games this season."

I never understood why WoW didn't see how obvious it was they were overweighting (offensive) rebounds.

BoxScoreGeeks has never bothered, even with all their tweaks, to fix their inability to project future wins within a sensible MoE with it.

huh
After the story was written, it was published and run on Forbes.com at 9:00 a.m. ET on October 23rd. However, after the NBA complained about the content of Berri’s story to his editors, the story was removed from Forbes’ website shortly after noon on the same day. No one at Forbes edited the piece before it was published, according to Berri.

Berri and Forbes have since parted ways after the article was taken down and not re-run. The two parties were unable to come to an agreement over republishing the story and how it could be further improved and edited for publication.

“The article was removed because it failed to meet Forbes’ strict editorial standards for accuracy and fairness,” Forbes said in a statement to WNBAInsidr. “Specifically, the contributor intentionally omitted facts and context from an authoritative source that would have undermined his thesis. As a result, David Berri was removed as a Forbes contributor.” Berri told WNBAInsidr that the editor at Forbes failed to indicate to him which specific claims made by Berri undermined his argument and what changes needed to be made. Berri said that he asked his editor to make specific changes, and the editor refused.

There was a ResetERA.com thread about China doing some crappy authoritarian thing and someone posted "what can we do about it?" and the response was "e-mail the embassy."

They've had a large number of similar comments about how people need to post on someone's Facebook/Twitter about [X] and that was rolled into e-mail the embassy. Like one was about something Elizabeth Warren did and dude was all "people need to be telling her on Facebook."

Yeah, I was just going to point that out. I know it lists him personally as the claimant rather than a production company or whatever (makes sense, it's a live performance not being distributed otherwise), but what are the odds that the multi-millionaire comedian is sitting at home manually searching Youtube and filling out copyright strike forms?

It's like one step away from middle aged guys tweeting at the pictures posted by some generic Hot Girls Daily type account, as if they're speaking directly to Kylie Jenner or whoever.

I do sort of remember my personally lumping him in with the (often Canadian for some reason) Objectivist types, even though I don't think he's an Objectivist, that sees a whole "clash of civilizations" going on and argues that it's not a rights violation to murder people in countries with less rights than the United States/Canada because countries that have more freedom are justified to "liberate" less free countries. It was because he was saying some similar stuff about Muslim countries and Islam. Some other wank dad people like Sargon have occasionally expressed similar sentiments about people who live under Islam.

Wasn't something like this the official Ayn Rand Institute position?

Ignoring for the moment that Steve King's whole thing has been pretty obvious for a long time, I think that's actually pretty good of him to openly update an article from 2017 like that. Most of the Wank Dad would just memory hole it completely or dig in more. Shapiro sometimes seems like he's trying to be better than he has to be.

I mean in that he actually does journalistic like things like this or firing really bad writers, he is often actually nice to people dunking on him on twitter and will play along, he will go on YouTube channels to poke fun at himself and the "this is epic" meme, is willing to debate/appear on non-positive-only sites, agreed with Sandy on the debate thing others were trying to start but said he was still open to a debate on her terms, etc.

Compare that to the rest of the Wank Dad and the conservative media in general who are completely humorless and don't even feign integrity. (edit: I don't think he's totally reversed his Trump position either like Tucker did) He clearly doesn't have to do these things and keep his fans. Hell, compare to a "comedian" in Steven Crowder and it seems like Shapiro is massively more comfortable with it all.

Shapiro very clearly wants to be the next in the Buckley/Safire/Will line of big time conservative public intellectuals, and probably thought that he would already be at that point by now.

Probably kills him inside that he has to keep shilling brain pills and crypto currency instead of taking the spot on the ideas festival circuit that is rightfully his.
