He nba on Friday announced that the Charlotte Hornets restricted free agent forward Miles Bridges — who pleaded no contest to a felony charge of injuring the parents of a child in exchange for three years probation and no jail time after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in front of their two children — will serve a 30-game suspension for his actions, with the league giving him credit for 20 games served. Meaning, whichever franchise decides to compromise its morality for a springy forward who can get 20 points a night won’t be counting on said free-agent addition for 10 games next year.
I have questions…
I have so many questions, the most pressing of which is: How can you serve a 20-game suspension if you’re not on an NBA roster?
Other than LeBron James, no one was willing to approach the radioactive four-year pro who has been unable to start his fifth year during the 2022 season due to pending litigation and the PR coup they had. take by overlooking your shit off the pitch.
Last summer, the team and Bridges allowed your qualifying offer to expire, making him a restricted free agent. I would say, if you can’t get anyone to sign you, and you have to sit out a season due to your own actions, the league shouldn’t bend over backwards to accommodate the punishment. I’m crazy? Am I the only one who gives a shit about decorum? Image? Integrity?
Here is another pertinent question in my line of many: Don’t I have enough the rich have been given breaks for being shit people this week? Congratulations Miles, you and Dan Snyder can toast at any bar that allows you to show your faces.
And my final question is for Adam Silver. Umm, what the fuck are you doing? I mean, I know what you were doing posting this story at 5pm on a Friday, but I thought you were a conscious commissioner.
