    I started my long position on LICY today at $8.03 - I really appreciate you mentioning that ticker. Love the potential and I agree with everything, I was getting ready to start looking into that sector because I am currently looking at EV's to buy. Thanks!

    NFTs

    Honestly, I only have one right now. Cronos Chimp Club and it has a lot of promise. It’s Crypto.com’s first NFT on their Defi Wallet. According to their roadmap, they plan to get celebs involved and have some involvement with the metaverse. They came out about a month ago, the floor on Sunday morning was 3,000 CRO, that came down to about 2,000 CRO right now with CRO dipping. Many think crypto.com will end up being the biggest exchange in the world so these are expected to gain a lot of traction over the next year.

    I see a lot of people talking about this, Sabonis is a beast but Him and Vuc would not work, is Vuc is going to go from a 1st option one year ago to a possible 4th? Wouldn't go well. Besides, when is the last time that a team traded a player of Sabonis' caliber to a division rival? I doubt that Indy wants to get dominated by Sabonis for years to come because they would undoubtedly find a way to keep him over Vuc in the future. The Bulls have their big 3, whoever they may pick up, will have a role but it won't be to be a top 3 scorer on the team. Probably more 3D or a backup big when Vuc is off the court that can score pretty decently.

    NFTs

    Not long ago, I sounded like most on this thread but if you are at a point in your life where you want the opportunity to create generational wealth (NFA), I suggest you do some research on the Metaverse, NFT's, Blockchain, etc. There are definitely some projects that will end up worthless but many are not. It's much bigger than you think. Everyone of us will be using an NFT for nearly everything in 10+ years. Art, music, event tickets, real estate, etc. It's not just people that got rich on crypto and are paying insane amounts of money for things because they can (ok, some of it is). Soon, you will buy your ticket on an app and if that event becomes historical (no hitter, world series, etc), you can turn that into an NFT which will be authenticated on the blockchain and if you want, you can sell it and prove it's real. Further off, NFT's will also be authenticated for physical items so fashion, art, etc. ensuring uniqueness and ownership. Think of it as a digital version of an upper deck authentication. Two of the biggest industries in the world in the future may have to do with NFT's. One being video gaming and play to earn (which already happens in gaming) but this would be more advanced. Another is NFT's within real estate. Think of a group wanting to build a commercial building and instead of going to a bank, they provide you with an NFT asset (could be anything, a rare version of a song, a piece of art, etc.) and they tokenize their project where the people are the owners, not the banks. Think about the opportunity of you tokenizing your own house/equity on the blockchain to generate cash flow because that will happen in the future. If you'd like, you can provide the token holders with an NFT asset as a cushion to create trust and partnership. Everything will be automated and digital, even more than it is now. It's big enough that they are no longer ignoring it and have met about it this week with the government.

    Fans were chanting Fire Nagy fairly loud. Gonna need to dial it up a lot more if they actually want that to happen.

    Out of these three and with the current makeup of the team, Wood is the one. They need another big that can score and rebound much more than they need another wing. Personally, I already think they are a contender. They have a legit big 3.5 with Lonzo and Vuc hasn’t even played decent.

    I think others made some great points but to the layman, I think what he did in Toronto was forgotten about to fans outside of Toronto once Kawhi came in and won a title. Many just assumed he was super overrated and forgot about the great run they had with him. In SA, they stunk so despite his numbers as a playmaker, I believe people just started writing him off. I know a guy from Toronto that still loves Derozan so much, that he flew in to Chicago just to see him play DRose a couple of weeks back. He's still loved there, big time. I do remember people were very hurt by that trade because they knew Kawhi wasn't going to stick around and Derozan gave everything to them, obviously, a title got them over that. In 2016, he was the 5th leading scorer in the NBA, that is no joke. Then Toronto dumped his ass LOL

    Started off great but GS adjusted perfectly. Golden State is the king of small ball, if you don’t have a dangerous big, you have little chance. I’m glad to get this out of the way early in the trip as a bit of a wake up call. I still think this Bulls team can pretty much beat anybody when healthy from what we have seen so far. I’m not too upset, 3 starters had only made one shot by end of the 3rd, doesn’t matter how good the D is, that will not happen again.

    Year 3 for Coby, this is when many players put up or shut up. He has his flaws but if he can increase his shooting % another 2.5% as he did last year, we are looking at a 44% shooter off the bench that can catch fire and change games. Jamal Crawford is seen as one of, if not the best 6th man ever and he shot 41% for his career. Coby is practically the same size, He has the potential to get better.

    If they thought he'd embarrassed himself too many times, he would have been gone long ago or if it was going to happen, the second he walked in the door this morning. He's still here which means the McCaskey's have the same thought process, that this is a learning experience and they will grow from it. There is no common sense in the front office, why would we expect any difference now? This discussion happens every single week amongst us, here we are four years later and still saying that Nagy isn't going to be around much longer, he didn't do himself any favors, etc. FOUR YEARS!!! Justin Fields was the top rated QB yesterday this week. Pace will tell his bosses that his guy Nagy is finally starting to show that he can mold a quarterback and things are looking up, if Pace says otherwise, it looks bad on him. I'll also add that is is completely criminal that the Bears didn't make any moves to add draft capital. Absolutely unforgivable and just more proof that we likely see no change in direction soon until they decide to sell. I will completely redact everything I say if they pull the trigger and can him today but I'll believe it when I see it.

    I 100% agree with what you said after the first sentence, but he has had multiple glaring moments for four years now and nothing has changed. They said Nagy and Pace are here to grow together. I firmly believe the McCaskey’s think this was Fields coming out party and that Nagy is the reason for it finally coming together, even in a loss. As fans, we constantly harp on how stupid and lazy they are, why would that change here? Fields threw for twice as many yards as his average per game against a very good defense on national TV. Without a doubt, they consider this a “good loss” and he bought himself time. They will continue to be stupid, until they prove they are not.

    He was throwing up bricks early but He looked much better in the fourth after he hit that big 3, sometimes that’s what you need to get going. Nothing but swish after that. They will have their ups and downs early in season because they are new and have a few holes but at end of day, this team is really f’n good I’m ecstatic at the turnaround in one year from management.

    Do people actually believe that Nagy is closer to being fired after this game? I firmly believe that the McCaskeys believe it is awesome that Nagy lead this young QB to a late lead and near win on a Monday night at Heinz Field in front of the world. I think he bought himself some time.
