I get why guys are saying this is accurate, but there was so much in there that was inaccurate it isn't even funny. This was just two guys piling on with the usual bullshit.

The cost of work permits is in the hundreds of dollars, and none of it or any other tax goes to the fucking Queen. There really might be a chance that this city could have basketball fans as well as hockey fans, and to say otherwise is a ridiculous assertion that was only brought up so Bill could have a laugh as a Bruins fan. Vince was not treated like a franchise player? Get the fuck out of here with that shit. It mattered that Jonas won summer league MVP? No idiot, it obviously did not, but his improvement over the course of the past year maybe was worth mentioning. Rudy shot poorly due to double teams and his eyes were fine? That's garbage. Look at the shot chart and see that the easiest three pointers were missed entirely, and that is also the spot on the floor where depth perception comes into play the most. And it's not like he was lighting it up when he was with the grizzlies or when he took wide open shots here such as when he played in LA. Masai gets labelled as a GM/warlord? I find that more than a little offensive if his African roots are being referred to in that sense.

There really was very little accurate here! nor was there any attempt to be accurate. It was a shoddy bit of trashing a franchise that has largely bee trash. So to the extent that it disrespected a team that has done nothing to deserve any respect, it was accurate. Otherwise, not so much.
