  • Heat guard had an amazing, gross reaction to $50M contract offer

    A great many sports fans, whether die-hard NBA followers or casual observers, experienced pretty serious sticker shock during the opening days of free agency, as players who aren’t exactly household names (well, outside of Russia) started signing deals eight-figure deals that dwarf the top paydays of some of the greatest NBA players of even the very recent past. Nets general manager Sean Marks made the lucrative offer, which included “poison-pill” guarantees of $18.8 million and $19.6 million in the final two years of the deal, in hopes that the Heat — who picked up the undrafted Fresno State product in the summer of 2014, added him to their D-League affiliate, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, and helped develop him into a versatile young backcourt piece for the senior club — would be too cap-strapped down the line after maxing out center Hassan Whiteside, and too wrapped up with their pursuit of top free agent Kevin Durant and attempts to re-sign franchise legend Dwyane Wade, to exercise their rights in restricted free agency and match the offer sheet.

  • Scientists have a fascinating theory to explain why smart people should spend less time with friends

    Be sure to come with plenty of supporting evidence, namely an IQ score and the results of a recent study on the "savanna theory of happiness." Your pals will be sure to understand. The study, led by psychologists at Singapore Management University and the London School of Economics, found that people are generally happier the more time they spend with friends. For the first study, the researchers looked at the link between three factors: participants' scores on an intelligence test, the population density in the area where participants lived, and how satisfied participants were with their lives. For the second study, the researchers looked at the link between participants' IQ scores, their life satisfaction, and how often they socialized — meaning hung out or talked on the phone — with friends.
