Derrick Williams posterizes Bismack Biyombo

TAG

If you’re going to be immortalized forever on some kid’s poster, at least try to be the one doing the dunking.

In Friday’s Hornets-Kings game, Bismack Biyombo wasn’t thinking about that at all. He stepped in the way of Derrick Williams and will never be able to forget it. Williams receives a pass as he cuts to the basket, and the rest will live on in Biyombo’s nightmares for weeks to come.

Commend guys who do this, because these days everyone is worried about image and don’t want to be the next Brandon Knight.

Trail Blazers sign Enes Kanter to maximum offer sheet

TAG

The Trail Blazers’ newfound salary-cap surplus is going to cost the Thunder either a big man or big dollars.

Portland is signing restricted free agent center Enes Kanter to a maximum four-year, $70 million offer sheet. NBA.com was first to report the move, with Yahoo Sports adding that it includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker bonus.

Oklahoma City has three days to match the offer sheet, made possible by the departure of LaMarcus Aldridge to San Antonio in free agency. And at that price, the Thunder might have to cut some other players loose to make everything fit.

The 6-11 Kanter saw his production explode after being dealt from the Jazz to the Thunder in February. The 23-year-old was averaging 13.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for Utah but boosted those numbers to 18.7 points and 11 rebounds in 26 games with Oklahoma CIty.

Still, that kind of money carries plenty of risk for both teams involved, even as salaries around the league continue to spiral. K[……]

U.S. mall values fall 60% after appraisals
Few bidders are interested in struggling malls as landlords hand back the keys to lenders

The suburban mall that you frequented as a teenager could now be worth substantially less than the dirt underneath it.
U.S. mall values declined 60 percent due to appraisals in 2020, according to an analysis by Bloomberg News. Across 118 shopping centers with commercial mortgage-backed securities loans, about $4 billion was lost after reappraisals caused by delinquencies, defaults or foreclosures.
The data suggests a grim outlook for many malls across the country as some of the largest mall owners, including Brookfield Property Partners and Simon Property Group, are increasingly walking away from underperforming properties and handing them over to their lenders.
In some cases, malls are being foreclosed on with almost no interest from outside investors. A recent foreclosure auction of a Simon mall outside of Atlanta yielded no bids despite a previous valuation of $322 million.
In Connecticut, a portion of a shopping center owned by Simon recently saw its value drop by 88 percent after an appraisal.
Many of the lower-tier malls that will be sold will likely be redeveloped into something else, according to industry experts.

Blastoff? Architects envision tower strapped to asteroid, parachuting tenants
Asteroid would orbit northern and southern hemispheres
New York /
The pitch to lenders could go something like this: The world s tallest building will be strapped to a mobile space rock, and residents can come and go as they please so long as they parachute down to earth.
Are you sold?
This is the vision of New York-based Clouds Architecture Office, which has proposed a conceptual tower suspended from an orbiting asteroid, Dezeen reported. The hypothetical project, dubbed Analemma Tower, would be attached to a NASA-controlled asteroid. The asteroid would trace a figure eight path between the northern and southern hemispheres each day, spending the longest part of its orbit over Midtown Manhattan.
Analemma isn t the firm s first hypothetical voyage into space. Clouds won a competition hosted by NASA in 2015 to design a 3D printed home for Mars.
The conceptual tower joins other recent outlandish designs that reimagine how height is represented in the city. Earlier this month Oiio proposed what it billed as the world s longest tower, which looks like two conjoined 432 Park Avenues.
No word yet on how Analemma will deal with tenant motion sickness. [Dezeen] — Kathryn Brenzel
