    I have no idea. I never posted on there. I have wondered recently where those two are though. Would also like to see KingStarbury come around here.

    Read Trump tried to negotiate a vaccine contract with a German company named Curevac exclusively for US use. What an idiot this President is, people all over the world are dying from this virus and he wants it exclusively for the US. It’s a credible story also because a German investor who owns an 80% interest in Curevac said the company called him when Trump contacted the company and asked him his opinion and he told them a German company should not be producing a vaccine that would only be for Americans.

    Yea I remember all the old school posters...most don’t come around anymore....CC, DonChris, Pat, Protect ur Picks Isiah,MetroCard, now of them. And the couple new posters...let’s just say group intellect on KO.COM is at an all time low. We used to never agree, but at least most had valid opinions that we backed up with some facts. Now it’s all Trump-like stuff. Say stupid things like:”Dot should be getting more clock than our number 3 lottery pick” and other stupid crap like that

    I'm in Germany and it is a true story. Right after he actually met with Trump White House people, he got sacked. The dumbest part is that this company closely cooperates with a German Institute which is 100 per cent state funded and Germany could always veto anything. Thank goodness those evil clowns are grossly incompetent.

    Curious why they didn’t name the 3 other Nets that tested positive even though they gave details that only one has symptoms.

    I think Durant chose to identify himself. Brooklyn did not name any of the 4 players.

    Pathetic excuse for a human being

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a9405191.html
    A video has emerged of Donald Trump talking about cutting the US pandemic response team in 2018 days after claiming that he knew nothing about the disbanded White House unit.
    Mr Trump said of the pandemic team that some of the people weve cut they havent been used for many, many years and if we ever need them we can get them very quickly and rather then spending the money.

    Im a business person, I dont like having thousands of people around when you dont need them, he added.

    To share a Little bit of info on this.
    The guy who owns most of the shares of the company CureVac is Dietmar Hopp the founder of SAP and a pretty social person. He has been very clear that there will not be any restrictions in terms of availability of a vaccine developed by the team there. Its gonna be used inter-nationally! Also he said that there is a vaccine expected to be available in Fall this year .. which is quicker than most ppl have expected!

    So thats good news. Lets hope its true!

    Here's a post from a guy in Germany ....
    Since this has been solely on the US at this point let me briefly give you guys a short summary on what is happening here in Germany at the moment. Hope its interesting and helpful since we seem to be a little ahead of your guys in terms of the spread of the virus - of course nobody can really tell due to the testing issues in the US. :-/

    We had up until yesterday 4383 diagnosed cases and 12 death.
    We are roughly 8 days behind in the curve in comparison to Italy.
    At this point the rate of death to diagnosed seems to be lower than in Italy and some other countries but this probably still is because we are "early" in the curve and the medical system in Germany is a little better suited with intensive care units etc.

    Government has reacted by a partial lockdown in most areas.
    Schools and Kindergardens are all closed, ppl are asked to work from home when possible.
    Only grocery stores, Pharmacies and banks are basically open.
    Ppl are asked to execute social distancing... but honestly... its a so so success in terms of compliance.
    In Berlin for example 50 cases were diagnosed after a gourp of ppl infected each other in a club...
    Who the **** is clubbing now?!?!

    So is Chandler one of the 4 that was reported to have the virus or is he a new case and he makes 5? All teams should be reporting the names of the players and whether they have symptoms or not.

    Why its important is Chandler tweeted that his apartment management asked him to avoid all the common areas of his building to avoid spreading the virus. If people weren't aware he had it they couldn't issue this precaution to him.

    Wait a minute. Who said Wilson Chandler tested positive? Wasnt the whole point of why he was outraged that he is not positive, but he was told to avoid common areas of apartment building because of the news that other Nets had tested positive?

    It hasn't been confirmed if he was tested positive or not, but IMO that's not the point. If you know you have team mates that were tested positive you should just assume that it is possible (and even probable) you might also have it and stay in isolation for a couple of weeks. It helps not only you to contain the virus case you have it or to protect yourself case you haven't got it but you also protect everybody else around you. What people fail to understand is that they can't expect authorities to take care of them while they go ahead with their everyday life. Those who have the possibility of staying isolated they should just do it plain and simple. Confirmed or unconfirmed. The military WILL eventually enforce this. Those who don't have the possibility should be very open to social distancing and personal hygiene
    Bottom line: You are the FIRST responsible to protect yourself, contain the virus and stop the spread.

    They were all tested. If he is not one of the 4 who tested positive, he tested negative and is asymptomatic. If he has been away from his teammates for at least 5 days, putting restrictions on him that arent on other residents of his building is not fair. If anything, the whole building should be avoiding common areas, not just him.
