Aspire isn’t a school. Aspire players go to school at Desales High School and play basketball for Aspire.

Aspire is essentially just a basketball team.

21 points · 20 days ago

Aspire Academy is not a school whatever they like to call themselves. they paid DeSales, which is private, to use their facilities (oh, and to "teach them.")

it's basically year round AAU with housing. this isn't some new thing, people are just getting flat out blatant with it now. La Lumiere is a TINY school up in the boonies of northern Indiana, entire student body is like 250. used to be legit little boarding school nobody ever heard of. then maybe 10 years ago they said shit, let's build a gym and become a powerhouse outside the confines of the IHSAA and let the Nike money roll in.

Are you implying that Desales didn’t teach the Aspire kids? The whole reason he doesn’t have a diploma from Desales is because they wouldn’t lower their standards and let a kid reclassify for the sake of basketball.

How do you handle the "Who are your top competitors?" question?

I sell a SAAS product to multiple industries and my competitors differ by industry (we're the only company that has a product flexible enough to fit with a wide range of prospective companies). I have been hearing this question quite a bit lately: "Who are your largest competitors and why do you differ?".

How do you typically handle this question?

Lol at the idea that a customer asking that question doesn't already know your competition.

I used to just dispel it outright. "There is nobody doing what we're doing, and what sets us apart from the other, less favored guys is ___"

I never liked to play those games with customers. If they're asking that, they typically already know the competition and just want you to bash them or oversell yourself. Do neither and say "we're more successful because of blank". That's all.

I don’t necessarily mind talking about competitors because we legitimately have a better product but it just seems dumb to give them a list of other companies to consider.

I typically just tell them about competitors in other spaces that wouldn’t have solutions for them and talk about why we can make our platform fit with any type of customer.

I can see the comparison except Randle is 6’9. More of a post player than Zion.

Oh, trust me - I’m overly aware - just saying it’s possible to make it high in the draft by not being the top option. Hell, look at Trey Lyles for another example who’s probably a little closer to Zion.

You telling me if someone came to you right now and said you can have the exact same job you have now but we’ll pay you twice as much and it also happens to be the city your wife is from, you wouldn’t do it?

Anyone who gets mad at a coach for going elsewhere for more money is foolish. You’d do the same in a heartbeat.

I honestly wouldn’t. Especially because I am a Xavier graduate. If I was in the scenario that Mack went into where it could be trouble regarding the NCAA I would see the risk outweighing the reward. Also he is from Cincinnati. He went to Louisville because he was being selfish.

He is going to be fired in three years for underperforming. He is not worth $7 million a year. Steele did the majority of the recruiting for Mack. Also Mack had trouble tapping into recruits out of the mid west and Georgia.

If you’re a cards fan good luck being disappointed. He couldn’t beat Villanova. How do you think he will do with a league of Novas?

Pretty difficult to make the case that someone is a ball hog when he’s consistently in the top of the league standings in assists.

Yeah, his genetics are that of a thicker more muscular person. Kinda like Charles Barkley although more athletic. I remember hearing an interview with Charles and said he did have to lose weight as a younger player, but if he got below 250 he didn't feel good. I feel like that's going to be the case with Zion. He should lose some weight, but his genetics simply won't allow him to get too lean without feeling like shit.

I personally think Lebron does have better genetics for basketball. He's naturally more lean than Zion and while Lebron is very muscular for a basketball player, he still has that athletic more sleek physique. Zion is build like a tank, has a bit more body fat, and looks more like an NFL prospect than NBA prospect.

Lol I knew I’d see someone giving you shit for saying chuck was less athletic than Zion. I did the same thing once and was surprised at the backlash I got.

Chuck was way more athletic than he gets credit for but Zion is a generational athlete. Whether he has a better career than chuck did, I doubt it. But he’s definitely more athletic if you’re just talking pure jumping ability.

I’m sure he is already the smartest person in the entire state of Kentucky.

Are you an idiot? That face isn't fake. That's food aggression, a very serious sign of an irresponsible dog owner.

At a certain point, there’s only so much you can do to prevent food aggression. I have two Golden’s and can literally pull food out of their mouth while they’re eating without any issues. Neither have ever shown any amount of aggression toward a human, especially children.

However, when another dog tries to eat out of their bowl while they’re eating, they’ll give a warning growl. It’s a natural behavior that is extremely difficult to stop. They’re both still pups so we’re working on it, but some dogs just instinctively guard their food.

Much of it is instilled in the first few weeks of life where they tend to be fed out of a communal bowl along with their litter mates. We work with them on a regular basis playing with their food while they eat, covering their bowl, etc. but it’s another story when it comes to other dogs.

The fact that this dog was allowed around other dogs with food could be called irresponsible, but just the fact that it’s food aggressive with a high value treat like that isn’t necessarily a sign of a bad owner.

Because his point is a good one. LeBron was able to effectively work off-ball with a secondary ballhandler twice in his career (Wade, Kyrie) because they could both shoot.

Simmons can't. He would still be a great driving threat, but the lack of even a comfortable mid-range shot would reduce the slashing opportunities LeBron was so eager to exploit in Miami.

AND he's right that LeBron is not a "great" shooter that you want shooting threes all game. He's only at 35% from three since returning to Cleveland on a team that would have a lot more spacing than the current 76ers roster (without knowing any other changes they would make obviously).

Since when are we considering DWade a good shooter?

It's been gaining popularity for a while now. About 75% of Democrats support a single-payer system, and polling released back in April found that 51% of Americans overall (and 53% in a separate poll) would support a single-payer health care system. It's pretty astounding, really. Makes me a bit optimistic about the future for once.

I got sent to collections by AT&T for this exact same reason, except it was because a technician came out and swapped my router. He took the old one and I guess they never found it again.

It took me over a year to get it figured out, called probably 30 times throughout that year to get updates and never got anywhere.

Eventually, I got a competent individual who just waived the fee for me. Fuckers.

Even if he plays on a team you don't like, or whatever, if you watch any documentary about him and can still not like him you're a monster.

He's actually a genuinely good person, who tries to do his best in a game he loves, and be a role model for the black community.

Love watching Lebron play and I like him in general but I think a lot of people get rubbed the wrong way by his social media posts. He tries way too hard imo.

Doesn’t take away from all the good stuff he does and the fact that he is next to a god on the court.

More meant ouch for Kentucky with the news today. If Travis goes there things get better, but I’m not even sure that move makes sense for Travis. The starting 5 will be pretty strong, but the bench right now is questionable

If Reid Travis comes, he’ll presumably start alongside PJ Washington. The other two big men are Nick Richards and EJ Montgomery, both McDAAs.

Then you look at the fact that UK will have three 5 Star point guards on the roster after Hagan’s reclassified, along with Keldon Johnson, Herro and Jemarl Baker on the wings.

Not really sure where you’re getting that information. Kentucky will be 10 deep easily.

I don't know that Travis and Washington is going to be a winning combination. Both are undersized bigs and I know Travis is slightly allergic to playing defense.

Baker and Herro and question marks for me until I see them play. Neither are in the rankings range of where players usually succeed at Kentucky right away. Green wasn't great last year.

If you want to argue that Kentucky is better without Gabriel and Vanderbilt, then we can do so. I don't see an argument there though. Add those two to this team and it's a potential 39-1 type dominant team. Losing both brings them back to the pack though. Richards, Green, Baker, Herro is currently what would be coming off the bench and that's just a giant question mark for me right now

see more

Green won’t be coming off the bench, he’ll be a sophomore guard with a season of experience over the freshmen. You’re also forgetting that we have EJ Montgomery, who is a top 10 player coming in and can score and block shots at 6’10.

I think you’re really reaching here. Kentucky will without a doubt (assuming Hagans reclassifies and Travis transfers) be one of the deepest teams in college basketball.

An 18 year old is only immature if they've been infantilized by their environment. At that age you should easily be capable of being an adult, from a developmental perspective.

That’s not true. The human brain isn’t fully developed until 25 in most cases. An 18 year old is immature because their brain still needs more time to grow. A 28 year old dating an 18 year old is super weird at the very least and predatory at worst.

I hate IU but I wouldn’t consider them a rival. We don’t play them anymore so it’s tough to have a rivalry there. It’s UofL and Tennessee and that’s really our only true rivals imo. You can say Duke in basketball because they’re a top program and we’ve had some big games against them but we don’t consistently play them so I don’t know if I would consider that an actually rivalry. I think UK fans care significantly more about Duke than the other way around due to the Laettner shot, their recent championships, and recruiting losses.

Also, why is everyone in this thread just talking about basketball? Our biggest football rival is definitely Louisville, hands down. If you talk about other sports in general, I would say Louisville as well.
