The Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns face off in a few hours. I don’t know if LeBron is still out with an injury or not but he does play we may get another great LeBron James vs Kevin Durant matchup. After so many years of them not playing each other it is great to see so many matchups this year. The game is on ABC too so check it out.

yes, sad to see Lebron James not being able to play in the match against the Warriors. I think it could have helped the Lakers a lot. In this match, the Warriors were able to win pretty easily in the end. but the game could have been a lot closer if LeBron James could play in this one.  Stephen Curry had a very good performance in this game.  He contributed a lot to the winning of his team.

I am excited about the match between the Phoenix Suns and the Lakers. The Lakers winning against the Spurs makes one thing more certain that they are always going to play a lot better if Lebron is playing. Lebron also did the heavy lifting in the match against the Spurs as well.

Edit: Btw sad news for lakers. Lebron is not playing in the next game as well. Some important players including Lebron are missing.  Cry

LeBron is playing and starting off 3-3. Another Durant LeBron battle is in progress.

Halving in 51 days, little over 7 weeks.  Shocked

Stop your flatlining sideways, buddy.
...

I must say I'm quite happy with flatlining at 50k+ .... as long as we don't dip around halving like every other cycle

Flatlining after an increase like we just had is just the market going into accumulation mode before the next leg up. I still wouldn’t sell here. Even though everyone is expecting a dip, myself included, it isn’t worth the risk of being left out when the god candle hits.

I do not think this post should be on the Altcoinboard as it does not make any sense about two stupid and highly overrated YouTubers fighting each other. What the heck of a difference they would be making with this fight in the cryptocurrency market or innovation as it does not hold any significance?

This board is already getting numerous spams every day and you are only making it worse as a legendary. memeber I mean what were you thinking before posting about a match-up that does not reflect anything about altcoins or introspect about them?

@bbc.reporter please do not take my opinion as a personal suggestion as I have replied with the thought of making this board clean of spam. What you posted is good news but it does not bring any relevance to the board where you posted. Please move it to a suitable board I feel that this post should be either on the off-topic board or the gambling discussion board.

This is a shitcoin board. Bitboy is a shitcoiner. At least this post won’t lose you money promoting a shitcoin to get some nerd rich doing a rug pull… There’s got to be more important things to worry about then if this is in the perfect section or not. Complaining about spam on a shitcoin board… Shitcoins are spam…

Respect to Bitboy. He got it done and it was easily the most entertaining fight of the night. I didn’t like the guy before because his content is shitcoins and his personal life is disgraceful but he deserves respect for tonight.

He also said he was fighting for Bitcoin and Stake. Smiley

I saw this on the internet just in case there was any doubt about what we’re doing. I think satoshi wanted us to do push-ups. I’ll leave you to decide the authenticity of the email yourself, but I think it’s just as genuine as any of the evidence presented in the CSW vs COPA lawsuit.

I came across this and am actually watching. Lol. I don’t see bitboy in the actual fight lineup though so I’m not sure if he’ll be fighting for real or not. If so that would be absolutely awesome. I guess he’s fighting a guy who launched a memecoin? Respect to him for doing this, but it seems like his life may be in a spiral.

Stealing to gamble has got to be one of the worst things you'd want to see from your kid.  It shows that they have a lot to learn.  I could see how as a parent you would be extremely angry and want to punish the kid, but you really need to see this as a teachable moment.  Maybe he doesn't realize the penalties for stealing and that it could ruin his chances of completing his goals in the future.  Maybe he doesn't realize that gambling is for entertainment and you're spending money to gamble, not to get more back.  I'd have that kid sitting in a room learning statistics until he came to the realization of how stupid what he did was.

I'm a little bit surprised that GBTC continues to have so many owners.  I wonder if they're motivated by thinking the price will continue to rise or if they are just not aware they could get exposure elsewhere with a lower fee...  The only thing that could make any sense to me is if they feel they're better off leaving their money where it is and avoiding paying any gains taxes they may be sitting on, as they feel the loss of money from taxes might hurt their future return when switching to a new fund.  I haven't thought the math out yet, but it seems that would be the only reasonable reason to still have funds parked there.

I rose this from the dead. Because we need to be ready. Grin

Nice!  I saw the thread and I was thought that's cool that somebody posted a thread with the all time high...  Then I saw my name as the OP.  LOL

It's really telling the difference in feeling this time around (like always).  Last time we were sitting on $50K+ a couple of years ago I personally was watching in shock thinking the price couldn't possibly stay this high could it?  This time around it feels like $50K is cheap and we're going to go a lot higher.  I see that people were still expecting the market to go a little higher last time, so there's some reason to be cautious...  However, I'm going to try and stay calm while holding until I get the urge to make another thread praising the current price.  Smiley

I'm seeing news articles today saying the DeMarcus Cousins has officially retired from the NBA.  There was talk that he had been trying out with the Golden State Warriors to be a backup center, but it seems those talks have died out.  I would've liked to have seen Cousins have more success in his career.  He was an absolute beast in his time with the Sacramento Kings and I think him and Anthony Davis would have surprised people with their postseason success had DeMarcus not gone down with an injury that then plagued him the rest of his career.  In his prime, he was a truly special player.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: When will Michael Saylor and MicroStrategy sell BTC? on: February 23, 2024, 03:53:18 PM
Microstrategy is in the business of selling stock, not Bitcoin. Saylor will likely just take loans out against his MSTR holdings and spend that with the hopes his company can continue buying BTC forever and the rise in value of his assets will dwarf his debts. That’s if he even has debts… He has probably already sold enough of his personal BTC to be set for life.
15  Economy / Reputation / Re: What Sort of Signature is "FUCK Royse777"? on: February 23, 2024, 03:49:13 PM
Sounds like maybe some sort of an onlyfans promotion maybe? Who knows what people are into behind the scenes. It seems that vulgar language in a signature is probably not the best way to promote something, but what do I know… I’d question why someone would pay for that, but money talks…

That stat line for Jokic was crazy tonight. He ended with 21 points, 19 rebounds, 15 assists, and shot 100% from the field. Thats got to be one of the best stat lines of the year, possibly up there with an all time efficient game. That dude is going to carry Denver to another title if the rest of the NBA isn’t careful.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2024 NBA Season on: February 23, 2024, 03:16:17 AM
Great game from Luka Doncic tonight. He got the better of Devon Booker and nearly got himself a triple double but missed it by a single rebound. Still it was enough to get the W and put this rivalry back in the hands of the Mavericks. I really hope we get to see these two teams face off in the playoffs.

Kevin Durant also made the news confronting a fan that called him a bitch before the game.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Do you stick to some Casinos or do you try out new ones? on: February 22, 2024, 09:51:21 PM
I'm pretty loyal to Stake so I haven't tried out many other casinos, but I did try out several before landing on one that I really liked using.  Stake sponsors some of my favorite influencers, stars, and fighters, which I can appreciate.  They also have maintained a presence on this forum for quite some time and haven't had any real drama outside of ownership legal stuff that doesn't effect end users.  I feel like if you keep trying new casinos there will come a time when you get scammed, so why not just find one you like and stick with it...

Up to 2,000 on the month now! Who’s still sticking with it? It’s great to have this thread to help hold myself accountable. I’ll admit I hit 100 pretty close to the wire here as there’s only a few minutes left in the day for me. Glad to still be sticking with it. I’m hoping 100K comes sooner than later though. Smiley

Pushin' it up here boss!  What next, 200 daily until 200K?

We'll have to see about that when we get there. Smiley

Personally, I would love to have a day or two off to let my body recover, but that is what makes this a challenge.  It is definitely getting easier though.  I've worked some core exercises into the routine so that my abs won't be left out, but I'd like to step up some leg workouts as well.  My typical bike riding is good and all, but I'm thinking up a challenge for myself to help get me back to running a respectable mile time.

If you know that the best way to score is either up close, near the layup/dunk levels or three pointers then you do that, why do something like Kobe did? We all love Kobe and he was one of the greatest players to ever play this game and you would be right to put him at around top three of all time greats.

However, that dude missed so many shots as well, there is a reason why he did though, because he played ISO at midrange almost all his career, we now know that is not a good shot. So all in all, efficient and successful quick shooting teams have more chance to win, so why get a huge Shaq guy like guy?

Kobe doesn't have an impressive FG% overall in his career, but that's just because he is taking most of the shots and leading his team. For me, it's more than that; it's not about the FG but what he had fully achieved during his NBA career.

This guy (my favorite next to MJ) won 5 championships, and that's the ultimate success of a player to fulfill his career. During his era, there wasn't much competition, which is why he really dominated. It was before the NBA turned into a soft league where everyone focuses more on their 3-point shooting.

Kobe definitely wanted to be the guy and that's why he basically forced Shaquille O'neal out of Los Angeles.  He wasn't scared to shoot the ball when being covered by 5 guys and everyone knew it.  It's the reason the Lakers struggled at times and I'd say the reason they lost to the Pistons in the Finals.  I think he had all Michael Jordan's skills and his work ethic, but he lacked the pure athleticism that Mike had which enabled him to rise up and get shots in any situation.  If Kobe would have had Jordan's vertical leap, he would have been as good or better than the goat himself.
