Klay Thompson’s Message to Warriors in Locker Room After Durant-Draymond Feud

Klay Thompson isn’t typically the outspoken one on the Golden State Warriors. He’s normally not even heard from due to the fact that he seems to have a laid back personality. But after the on-court feud between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant against the Los Angeles Clippers, he opted to speak up and send a message in the locker room.
In a story from The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II, he revealed the message Thompson sent to his teammates, which was revealed by players inside the locker room.
“We all want to win,” Thompson said in the locker room after the game, per accounts of people in the room. “That’s all this is about. We all want to win. I think we’re the only team that can beat us. Nobody else can beat us. So let’s go kick ass.”
It’s a strong message from one of the original members of the team’s core, and he hit the nail on the head. The Warriors are loaded with talent, and even through the drama and issues, they remain as a favorite in the eyes of most to get the job done and win another NBA title.

Future Outlook of Kevin Durant
There have been multiple rumblings that Green brought up Durant’s impending free agency during the back-and-forth between the two. It’s apparent the team is somewhat bracing for the star to leave town next offseason. Obviously, a situation like this doesn’t make things any better. But as The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson II revealed in the same story, one player openly stated there’s “already no way Durant is coming back.”
“With what was said, there is already no way Durant is coming back,” one player said. “The only hope is that they can say this summer, ‘See, KD. We’ve got your back. We protected you from Draymond.’ ”
For the players, Durant’s future is known. While the former MVP won’t openly admit anything right now (understandably), it seems his time with Golden State is limited to the remainder of this season.

Into the Fire Exam Answers in Fallout 76

During your time in the wasteland of Fallout 76, you will likely come across a quest called “Into the Fire” located in the Charleston Fire Department.
As you progress through the quest you’ll eventually come across a terminal that will ask you to get all seven questions correct on an exam before you can continue the quest.
While you can search around the station and find all the answers or just guess your way through, it’s a little easier if you take the easy way out and just look the answers up online. If you fail the exam you are able to retake it so you don’t have to worry about being locked out of the terminal or anything.
We’ve got you covered if you decide to look them up yourself so here are all seven answers to the exam:

Question 1 Answer: C) Evacuate as quickly as possible.
Question 2 Answer: B) A water-soaked rag.
Question 3 Answer: A) Gently bind the burn with clean bandages.
Question 4 Answer: B) Retreat immediately.
Question 5 Answer: C) 1 pt. Purified Water, 2 Ash Rose, 2 Blight, 2 Soot Flower
Question 6 Answer: B) Fall back and engage from a distance with firearms.
Question 7 Answer: C) End his life as mercifully as possible.

After you do this it will require you go through a physical exam that is pretty self-explanatory, all you do is follow signs until the completion of the exam, except it’s quite the jog to the beginning of the exam. You’ll probably run into some more Scorched along the way so make sure you watch out for that.

Kevin Durant Says He Still Hasn’t Reconciled With Draymond Green

A day after a heated sideline exchange with Kevin Durant got Draymond Green suspended by the Golden State Warriors, the 2014 MVP said he and the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year still hadn’t made up.
From The Mercury News:
Has Warriors forward Kevin Durant hashed things out with Draymond Green after the two had a heated discussion at the end of regulation of Monday’s eventual overtime loss to the Clippers?
“No,” Durant said.
Does Durant see that happening anytime soon?
“I’m sure it will,” Durant said. “We have a long season ahead.”

Durant’s comments came after the Warriors defeated the Atlanta Hawks 110-103 at home without the injured Stephen Curry or the suspended Green.
General manager Bob Myers made a similar assertion before Tuesday’s game when asked whether Durant and Green would mend their relationship.

“I don’t know about that,” Myers said, according to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater. “They haven’t talked. I’m sure they will talk.”

The players argued before an overtime period in Golden State’s road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.
With the game tied and seconds remaining in regulation, Green corralled a rebound and raced down the floor, only to fumble the ball as time expired. All the while, Durant called for the ball.
The two then got into it in the huddle. It appeared Green called Durant a “bitch.”

Green reportedly brought up Durant’s impending free agency.

Sources: In midst of verbal exchange on court late in Monday's game, Draymond Green challenged Kevin Durant about Durant's impending free agency. As teammates came at Green about his turnover, he responded. This has been a simmering issue for the Warriors today.

After Tuesday’s victory, Durant was asked if Green had crossed a line during the argument.
“I’m going to keep that in house. That’s what we do here,” Durant said, per The Mercury News. “Obviously, I know you guys have a job to do. But I’m not trying to give nobody no headlines. What happened, happened. We’re just trying to move on and play basketball.”

Does ESPN’s ‘Blockbuster’ Offseason Move For Red Sox Make Any Sense?

The Major League Baseball offseason is here, which means it’s time to speculate until you get a headache.
ESPN’s David Schoenfield on Wednesday published a list of recommended “blockbuster” offseason moves for all 30 teams. And, as you probably could’ve guessed, we’re going to focus on his idea for the Boston Red Sox.
Schoenfield thinks the Red Sox should make a run at free agent corner infielder Josh Donaldson. Here’s his rationale:
“OK, at first glance, this one doesn’t seem to fit,” Schoenfield wrote. “The Red Sox led the American League in runs, and they need a closer. They’ll find a closer. Maybe they’ll re-sign Kimbrel, maybe they’ll give the job to Matt Barnes, maybe they’ll trade for somebody during the season. Maybe they’ll simply focus on re-signing postseason hero (Nathan) Eovaldi.
“But Donaldson is tempting. Yes, the Sox have Rafael Devers at third base. I’m not saying you give up on him. He hit 21 home runs at age 21. He isn’t very good on defense, however, and his OBP was .298, so he was more hype than production in 2018. Still, he’s young. Maybe you slide him over to first base and keep Mitch Moreland around as a bench guy. Or maybe you move Donaldson over to first base. Maybe you sign Donaldson and trade Devers for some pitching help (Dave Dombrowski never met a young player he couldn’t trade).
“Whatever you do, I like adding a right-handed bat to this lineup.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display( “gpt-ad-desktop-out-of-page” ); });

First of all, we’re not sure signing Donaldson would qualify as a “blockbuster,” but it certainly would be a splash. The bigger question, of course, is would this move make sense?
As Schoenfield noted, Devers did have an up-and-down sophomore season, although he did come up huge in the playoffs. But the 21-year-old’s potential clearly is enormous, and moving him away from third base — or moving on from him entirely — seems premature, especially when it’s just to sign an over-the-hill, 32-year-old infielder.
Yes, Donaldson can still rake at times, and there’s little doubt his right-handed power bat would play well in Boston’s lineup and at Fenway Park. But he’s coming off an injury-riddled season, as well as his least productive campaign since 2012.
Donaldson played in 52 games for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians last season, hitting .246 with eight homers and 23 RBIs. Furthermore, it’s hard to not look at Donaldson and think his future lies at first base, which means you’d likely have to move on from either Mitch Moreland or World Series MVP Steve Pearce — or both.
Pass.

Colin Cowherd Has One Critical Worry For Patriots Come Postseason

The road to the Super Bowl in the AFC has gone through Foxboro, Mass. seven times in the past 15 years, and one sports pundit believes the New England Patriots need that trend to continue this season more than ever.
During Tuesday’s edition of “The Herd” on FOX Sports 1, host Colin Cowherd highlighted a crucial worry he has for the Patriots come playoff time.
“I think at home, I think when they can get the ball rolling, I think this is a very good football team with the best coach in the NFL and an elite quarterback,” Cowherd said. “Pass rush is hit and miss. Gronk, physically, week to week is hit and miss. And by the way, Tom this year is 18th in completion percentage, passer rating is 16th. I do believe this is one of those years they could use home field in January. I don’t think they can go on the road and beat a Kansas City or Pittsburgh or Houston this year. I just don’t.”

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display( “gpt-ad-desktop-out-of-page” ); });

Cowherd’s skepticism has grounds. All three of New England’s losses this season have come on the road, and each was suffered in convincing fashion. In fact, the Patriots only have two road wins on the campaign thus far, one of which coming against the lackluster Buffalo Bills.
Playing postseason contests away from Gillette Stadium also is somewhat foreign to the Pats. New England is 3-4 in road playoff tilts during the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era, not including neutral-site Super Bowls. And considering the success of the red-hot Chiefs and surging Los Angeles Chargers, the Patriots very well could be tasked with playing January football away from their home field.
If that ends up being the case, the Patriots at least will have an opportunity to curb their road woes ahead of the playoffs, as three of their final six regular-season games are away from Gillette Stadium.

Westbrook Injury: Thunder Starting Five Against Knicks Without Westbrook

The Oklahoma City Thunder have gone 3-1 in their last four games without Russell Westbrook, who was downed last week with an ankle sprain during a contest against the Pelicans.

The All-Star point guard was averaging 24.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 8.9 assists before the injury–nearly a triple-double, unsurprisingly–but backup point guard Dennis Schroder has stepped up in his absence.
Schroder will likely get the start again tonight. He’s been averaging 20.2 points per game in the four games since Westbrook’s injury and has been instrumental in the team keeping its record alive without their star player.
That being said, here’s what the Thunder’s starting lineup could look like for tonight:

Le’Veon Bell Didn’t Respond to Ben Roethlisberger’s Last-Ditch Effort

Ben Roethlisberger gave it one final try ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. EST deadline. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, like many, held out hope that running back Le’Veon Bell would walk through the door and finish the season with his team. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, and the Steelers are now moving forward without him.
As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed, Roethlisberger sent a text message to Bell, making it known he hoped his teammate would show up. Ultimately, he received no response.

#Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, on Le’Veon Bell: “The thing about it is he’s not here. … So we don’t talk about it. I texted him yesterday before the deadline texting him I was hoping he was going to show up, and if not I wish him nothing but the best.” Bell did not text back.
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 14, 2018

It’s tough to say this is all that surprising as Bell had seemingly given nothing but silence to the coaching staff and front office. It seems he also wasn’t all that interested in responding to teammates either. Steelers players surely wanted Bell back, even if it was just for the homestretch of the season, so his decision not to show up is disappointing all around.

Le’Veon Bell’s Future Outlook
There’s unquestionably a very strong possibility we’ve seen the last of Bell in a Steelers uniform. The talented young running back gave up roughly $14.5 million on what was a one-year contract under the franchise tag in order to prove a point. For the Steelers to tag him for a third consecutive year, it would cost them in a big way.
As NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero detailed (via NFL.com’s Austin Knoblauch), the team would have to pay the quarterback-level of the franchise tag. That number would be roughly $25 million, and Pelissero previously reported the team is unlikely to go that route.
“It would be extremely unlikely for the Steelers to put that higher third franchise tag on Le’Veon Bell. That would set up a scenario where they’d tag him a third time, the number is upwards of $25 million and Bell, if he wanted to, could walk in the day he’s tagged, sign it and be owed $25 million for one season.” Pelissero stated.
At this point, it seems to be a foregone conclusion that Bell will be elsewhere in 2019. He should have plenty of suitors, but it’s unknown what the offers will look like, as he’s demanding big money.

OSU Students Chanted ‘John McCain Is Dead’ to Protest Ben Shapiro [VIDEO]

While a productive and civil discussion is going on inside the event, the hypocrisy of the Left is on FULL BLAST outside the venue.

When the conservative commentator Ben Shapiro came to Ohio State University on Tuesday, not everybody was glad to see him.
A group of students organized a protest of Shapiro’s lecture, which was organized by the Young America’s Foundation. The protesters marched towards the building where the lecture was taking place, chanting, “F*uck Ben Shapiro!” The protesters are bundled up — clearly it was a chilly night in Ohio — and many are holding signs denouncing Shapiro and the YAF.
You can watch that protest here:

Then the group of demonstrators stood outside of the lecture hall, chanting about various conservative icons who are no longer among the living. The chant started out with, “Reagan is dead!” After a while, it shifted to “John McCain is dead!”

OSU Warned Student’s That Shapiro’s ‘Rhetoric’ Might Threaten Their ‘Emotional & Mental Safety’

Here is the message sent by Ohio State University's Diversity Scholarship Program to students in the wake of @benshapiro's speech on campus
It reads like the campus is about to be carpet bombed indiscriminately by ISIS
SEEK SHELTER!!! pic.twitter.com/7tmeiODEDp
— Benny (@bennyjohnson) November 14, 2018

Ohio State University’s Diversity Scholarship Program sent out an email to students before Shapiro arrived on campus. The email urged students to seek out a “safe space” during Shapiro’s speech and encouraged them to reach out and talk with someone if they felt threatened during the event.
The email warned students that “Shapiro’s rhetoric has the potential to threaten the emotional and mental safety of much of the campus community.” And, the email went on, “If you do not feel comfortable around a climate that will be created by Ben Shapiro’s presence, we encourage you to seek a safe environment for yourself. Knowing the hostile environment that can result from these kind of events, we encourage you to seek an inclusive environment and reach out to talk with someone.”
The email did not explain how Shapiro’s rhetoric might threaten students’ emotional and mental safety. Shapiro is on a tour of college campuses and has encountered protests at other stops along the way. Pitt University announced that it would impose a “security fee” on students to cover the cost of guards at Shapiro’s Wednesday speech. Young America’s Foundation has threatened a lawsuit if the university doesn’t drop the fee.

Pokemon Let’s Go Version Exclusive Pokemon

Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee and Let’s Go Pikachu are the first real Pokemon adventures on the Nintendo Switch if you don’t count Pokemon Quest as a traditional title.
While the two games will feel mostly the same to players of generation one Pokemon titles these two Switch titles seem to cater more to a casual audience instead of the hardcore Pokemon audience. As a result, there will likely be a lot of new players coming to the Pokemon universe with this iteration. For the returning players, this game will feel very familiar to them.
It’s important to know the two titles will have different sets of Pokemon to catch so you’ll need both games or have a buddy to trade with if you want to complete your Pokedex fully.
Here are the Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee exclusives:

Let’s Go Pikachu

Oddish – Gloom – Vileplume
Sandshrew – Sandslash
Growlithe – Arcanine

Let’s Go Eevee

Bellsprout – Weepinbell – Victreebel
Vulpix – Ninetails
Meowth – Persian

This list will look similar to those who have played generation one in the past as the list is the same. Since this is just the first generation you won’t run into problems with large lists of exclusive Pokemon.
We know trading between these titles and Pokemon Go is coming in the future so you’ll be able to complete the Pokedex if you decide not to pick up both games. One thing that came over to this game from the newer ones is the Alolan forms of Pokemon. These were first introduced in Sun and Moon but will be coming to Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.
It’s not yet clear how the trading with Pokemon Go will deal with the future generations of Pokemon since that title is much further along than the Let’s Go series.
Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee release on November 16, 2018.
