Now focusing on basketball. How big of a deal was it in there? Seth Ferranti: I would say dudes took the games very seriously. There were stabbings over games all the time or beatings or fights or whatever. I remember seeing dudes get knocked out during the games and if dudes’ homeboys were in the stands… it was on – like a mini riot or big gang fight right in the gym on the ball court. It was a spectacle for real. You never knew what was going to happen. It was excitement. Prison is so boring, so you are always looking for the little intrigues and dramas and stuff like that. Watching and playing were big. Big games would be talked about and debated for weeks before they happened and every prisoner thought he was Stephen A. Smith from ESPN making his point and argument on who was going to win and why.

Hornets not offering Miles Bridges a max deal?

Speaking via ESPN, Windhorst said Monday: “Let’s take a look at Miles Bridges. He’s not being offered, from what I’m told, a max contract from the Charlotte Hornets right now. So, he’s going to go out into the market place, starting on Thursday or Friday, and see if he can get that offer from somewhere else.”
The Athletic conducted a poll, asking 16 officials in NBA front offices what they would deem a fair number for Barrett in an extension this summer or fall. Responses ranged from $15 million to $30 million a year. No one advocated for the Knicks to give him the max. Exactly half of the responses were a nice, clean four years, $100 million, making it by far the most common proposal from the polled executives.
