Lue said that he hasn’t had a chance to talk to Batum yet. Was pleased with Coffey’s performance… Clippers outscored Mavericks by 21 points in Coffey’s 25:14 (and Mavericks outscored Clippers by 15 points when Coffey was off the floor.) – 6:16 PM

It was July 4, 2021, and a franchise secret at the time, according to multiple officials familiar with the inner-workings of the Bucks, was that nobody outside of a small braintrust knew whether or not Giannis Antetokounmpo was vaccinated against Covid-19. The Delta variant was beginning to raise fresh hell. And the superstar’s vaccine secret — combined with what a high-ranking official who was just outside the braintrust called “hiccups” from Bucks management — stoked fear among employees across the franchise: That the highly contagious strain might come for them all… but especially for the most dominant athlete in the world. -via Rolling Stone / November 18, 2021
