Stocked up about 2 weeks ago on supplies and food that should last at least 60 days. But, being home with the wife and a 19 month old ALL DAY makes it tough to work remotely. I also bought about 15 cases of beer and 15 bottles of Bulleit Bourbon which helps. Everyone will turn into an alcoholic during this stretch. Divorces and pregnancies will be on an uptick as well.

i’ve had a lot of friends insist that liquor stores should be considered essential businesses…. :)

Wife is due with baby #3 in four weeks. We have yet to decide on a name for the boy. Her preferred name, as of right now, is Grayson. I kind of like the name. But, I worry about this potentially coming back to bite me. Most everyone I know is aware that I love Duke basketball. I'm worried people might say, "Oh, after Grayson Allen?" Don't think she'd be crazy about her baby boy's name being associated with a former Duke player.

Depends on the player.

Just name him Coach K instead.

Ohhhh... I dunno man. Not exactly picking a well-loved player. I mean, his nickname FROM HIS OWN COACH was "asshole" :)

Good luck with everything. If this is your third kid, you know what you are in for:)

Good taste.

Forreal though, they have distribution issues under normal circumstances - even in Kentucky-, so that was a smart move.

Thanks. They're a handful, no doubt.

And to your point, obviously not the most well respected Duke player. I'll have to try to coax her to go for another name. I loved Grayson, though. One of my all-time favorites.

True story. Grew up with a couple of high school sweethearts, guy is a diehard Duke fan, girl a Kentucky fan.

They named their first son (now ~3 years old or so) Grayson.

Now they’re separated, and the wife - the Kentucky fan - has the kid.

I’m usually able to carry @TheDude1 and our third to a win but it’s tough sometimes. That said I would toast any guard you have

I highly doubt that. Ever since I got good at the game I run with a lot of comp guards that play WR. These guys have 90% win percentages and green shots off my screens possession after possession after possession. It’s pretty cheesy. If the Big doesn’t hedge enough, my PG greens a three. If he does hedge enough I have an easy dive to the basket.

You might be better than my real life friends that play PG but sorry not the friends I meet playing comp.

Wow, don't want that. Guy should have been a peacemaker and named the kid Karl-Anthony.

Riiiiiighhht. Averaging what, 7 points 5 boards 2 assists a game on park, and *I'm* getting carried;)

Now Jungle... christ almighty. If he doesn't stop with the quick draw thing... like, shooting more quickly won't ****ing help if you miss every shot. Get that corner specialist and catch and shoot on already.

Quick draw is the most important shooting badge on the game. Jesus you guys are telling your shooter to take quick draw off??? No wonder your park records suck.

Too bad we won’t ever find out. Maybe when the next gen consoles come out they will do cross platform 2k. I don’t back down from anyone in this game. It would be fun

You can get the same deal. In fact anyone here can.
You don't want me playing any type of team game with you. When I played Halo and Turok I was always the guy who just shot at everybody and everything. My favorite thing was to throw hand grenades in rooms of people. The game was always too fast to know who was a good guy or bad guy so better be safe than sorry, ya know.

Haven't played a basketball video game in 10+ years but I'm pretty sure I'd just jack 3's all game long.

Get on 2k. Go to your phone. Open your player card. Click over to Park stats, take a picture. Click over to Rec stats, take a picture.

Post said pictures.


It’s a pretty easy way to compare stats rather than making stuff up

I have no idea. But yea, yikes. Jungle lately with that shooter is awful.


SOOOO BAD. It makes it hard... like, with my new red/blue build, that’s no offense from him, and a bit less from me until I get some badges and that makes it hard. And he keeps thinking that last badge on his lockdown will help... QuickDraw on gold... and I’m just like... argh.

I manage a grocery store in Indiana. So haven’t had a day off in 3 weeks. Company is treating us great and employees all hangin in there and do their best to have food for customers. Today will be crazy busy this governor is shutting down the state tomorrow. We are considered essential works so we will still be going to work to supply service for the customers.

My buddy who runs the closest Food Lion asked me if I wanted a job when I was off from school, lol. Said they just can't keep up.

Just name him Cherokee or Trajan something like that then.

Jimbo, every comp shooter I know has Quickdraw on gold minimum and I’d say 9 out of 10 have it on HOF. Why in the world is he complaining about your shooter equipping it?

I have it on HOF personally, but our one friend is just really bad with it. When I first started playing with thedude he was running with our third now, we call him jungle. When we first started he was a great shooter and his timing was fine. He played as a lockdown primarily for the next two games, and just recently made a new shooter who's pie chart is all green. I'm not kidding when I say, it looks like he has completely forgotten how to play the game. Air ball after air ball.

But I agree with you 100 percent, any good shooter most likely has Quick Draw on gold or higher.
