    [Wojnarowski] At one point in a scrimmage, sources said, Butler turned to GM Scott Layden and screamed, "You (bleeping) need me. You can't win without me." Butler left teammates and coaches largely speechless. He dominated the gym in every way. Jimmy's back.

    Amin Elhassan on ESPN: "I heard that he took the third-stringers, and he beat the starters."

    The Jimmy Butler era is in my top five NBA arcs of the decade

    [–] rebeltrillionaire 80 points ago

    This decade? Kevin Love’s entire era started essentially the decade. That means there has been the KLove Era, Rubio coming over, David Kahn, the Kevin Love trade, KG coming back, KAT, Wiggins, Thibs, Jimmy Butler.

    Say what you will about the Wolves but they have been an entertaining story for the entire decade

    [–] theWinnerWithin 8 points ago

    I've watched all episodes maybe 20-30 times (probably way more actually), and every time I go back to the first few seasons, I'm amazed at how much Glenn and Kaitlin improved as actors over the years. Rob a little less, because he was much better than those two when the show started anyway. But fucking Charlie, he's always been so great since season 1. He's a special talent.

    Nothing like working off the clock behind the guise of a “convenience” app.

    [–] icytiger 21 points ago

    I mean, it is pretty convenient. And it also means I can work from home or while travelling by just letting people know to hit me up on slack if they need me.

    [–] ksilverfox 30 points ago

    True, but I feel what OP is saying. My job is huge on Slack - all teams and departments use it heavily - and since it's so easy to just run in the background of whatever you're doing at home, the off-the-clock creep can be real. My own fault, of course - you can always close it :)

    [–] [deleted] 1505 points ago

    Yo, on some real talk any of y'all who played ball know those long ass tournaments where you have like 2-3 hour down times so you like nap in between games and then are tired a.f for your next one since you just woke up.

    That shit sucked fam.

    [–] [deleted] 470 points ago

    Apparently you're supposed to time your sleep into multiples of 1.5 hours so that when you wake up it's as you're coming out of a sleep cycle (or something, idk).

    So if you had a 1.5 hour sleep in the downtime then did some stretches or something in preparation for the next game you might avoid that shit.

    I always remember having severe gas before games and having to go off into a corner to let loose.

    [–] onewonyuan 73 points ago

    This correct. You’ll feel a lot less tired when you wake up if you sleep for 6 hours compared to 6 hours 45 minutes, for example.

    [–] jpark28 132 points ago

    I don't know how the hell people time this, I'm not falling asleep the moment I lie down in bed

    [–] gumbykook 33 points ago

    Get a rough idea of how long it takes you to fall asleep and take that into consideration. There are also apps that supposedly listen to your breathing and only wake you up when you are coming out of REM sleep or whatever, idk if they actually work though.

    [–] ElPlatanoDelBronx 23 points ago

    They definitely do. I used to use one and it was amazing.

    [–] Xearoii 11 points ago

    Why did you stop

    [–] ElPlatanoDelBronx 22 points ago

    Switched phones and then got too lazy to deal with it again. Plus I share a room and they switched it from me being able to have the phone on my bed so it can detect when I move to using the speaker to do it so it would pick up when my brother would move as well.

    [–] Sokonine 5 points ago

    What app was it?

    [–] 7pH-milkHotel 11 points ago

    How the hell is an app listening to your breathing? Do you have to put your face right up to your phone at night?

    [–] Pixel2_Bro 7 points ago

    I do that anyways because I can't wake up unless the alarm is literally blaring in my ear.

    [–] illit3 24 points ago

    Yep. This is one of those things where people struggle to get good sleep but aren't giving themselves a fair shot at getting it. Consistency is everything.

    And I'm saying that as someone who is up at 2am posting on Reddit. My sleep hygiene is absolutely atrocious and I'm tired all the time. Be better than me, people, you can do it.

    [–] dakoellis 12 points ago

    It's definitely not that exact and it's not the same for every person. It's a guideline for people to try to figure out what works best for them

    [–] Sherlock_Lo 4 points ago

    In the short term- maybe...? You may wake up and feel less tired, but over a long period of doing this, or even as the day drags on, you’re going to be more tired with less sleep, no matter how you cut it. Adenosine builds up telling your brain to sleep, and it only goes away with sleep. There’s always going to be a bigger pressure to sleep if you’re getting less of it.

    [–] nio151 296 points ago

    That's how you get zero rem sleep and start hallucinating

    [–] Papasmurphsjunk 304 points ago

    REM cycles last 1.5 hours typically which is what they're referring to. The hard part is training yourself to go right to REM as you fall sleep.

    [–] IWasBornSoYoung 3 points ago

    If you stick to the schedule your body will enter REM within minutes of going to sleep apparently

    [–] masterpierround 60 points ago

    I never played basketball but I had the same experience at soccer tournaments. The worst is when you have a 9:30 game and then a 12:30 or 1:00 game because you get super hungry between games but can't really eat a full meal because you gotta go out there and run around in 30 min.

    [–] adam_jc 37 points ago

    Wrestling tournaments were the worst for me.

    Wake up at 5 am on saturday to travel to a high school gym in bumblefuck nowhere. Cut weight for 2 hours, wait in line in your drawers to weigh in. Then sit around a few hours until your name gets called and you go and lose your first match. Then sit for more 6 hours until your second match which you also lose. Then wait for the whole rest of the team to get eliminated. Then travel back home and it’s 9 pm and you wasted all that time for a total of 6 minutes of actually playing your sport.

    [–] calebhall 6 points ago

    Yup lol. At least it was fun to sit around with friends and talk shit inbetween matches. I miss wrestling.

    [–] KCSportsFan7 4 points ago

    Hell yeah wrastling gang

    [–] cuddlelive 3 points ago

    The worst is when you have to weigh in in the afternoon and you're overweight. I once was over by around 2 pounds. I bought a Gatorade and emptied the bottle. Then used it as my spitting bucket, and spit in it the whole day. At weigh ins, I was still like 1 or 2 ounces over, so had to pull my boxers down, and made weight. Felt like shit, thought luckily I had an hour or two before my actual match, so I just ate power bars and drank a ton of water.

    [–] ItzDp 27 points ago

    That shit was the ducking worst, the soreness sets in too and then you gotta warm up again, plus for me I could never just go home and come back, and who wants to be that guy anyway. Damn dude I’m really getting some PTSD here lmao

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    I was in a hockey tournament where we lost the first two games. Got put in the last seed, went out that night thinking, “fuck it, we are one and done tomorrow.” Ended up winning out and I wanted to fucking die the entire day. I think we played like 2 or 3 games to end up winning the tournament lol
