What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
I asked Devin Booker how he felt physically post-Tokyo.
He paused/laughed before saying that’s a great question.
“It was a lot. Obviously, it was a lot of basketball. Honestly, I felt fine. Little worn down, but after a couple weeks of traveling I was ready to get back to it.” pic.twitter.com/DK5ZQWh1oK4:53 PM

Elfrid Payton getting some conditioning in with the mask on since he just received his second shot on Sunday. Meanwhile Monty and Book are talking in the background. No mask for Book, so maybe we can kill the speculation pic.twitter.com/0a1PWxMLtC3:58 PM

Love these tips about remembering what you read. The last tip about finishing not being required rings especially true. We change the channel, change track of music quickly but so many feel like every book we pick up has to be finished fs.blog/blog/ via @farnamstreet9:30 AM

The book I always wanted to write. So glad it was @Chris Herring who got to it. This is a must-read. #Knicks pic.twitter.com/hxtCjagIOw6:57 AM

More on this storyline

Kellan Olson: Devin Booker said he is vaccinated and has been for a while with his family. On people getting vaccinated: “I feel like everybody should have their own right and their own decision on what they are doing with their body. And that was my decision to get vaccinated.” -via Twitter @KellanOlson / October 1, 2021

Joe Tsai: The other thing I want people to understand is I take the vaccine, I’m protecting myself, but I’m also protecting people around me. I protect my family, I protect meeting with people, I protect everybody else. It’s part of social responsibility when you think about it to do the socially responsible thing. I know that there’s just so many scenarios where there’s a conflict between personal choice and what is good for the greater goal. And guess what? Our greater goal for the Nets is that we want to win a championship. That’s very, very clear. And I want to make sure that people don’t lose sight of that. -via The Athletic / October 1, 2021

In an interview with Vincent Goodwill, Kareem was asked about LeBron James’ decision not to speak out publicly to advocate for the vaccine to his fellow players and the general public. The Lakers center responded in a roundabout way saying that LeBron’s actions, which in this scenario means getting himself and his family vaccinated, speak volumes. “He doesn’t speak as a spokesperson for getting vaccinated, but he is speaking as a parent and a father and someone who has to care for his family,” said the Lakers legend on LeBron. “In that context, he got vaccinated and got his family vaccinated. So there’s a lot of ways to skin this cat. But you have to get the message across.” -via Clutch Points / October 1, 2021
