Seth's Blog: Putting a value on a story
Walk through the diamond district in Manhattan and in the course of one block, at least a dozen men will stop you and ask if you're hoping to sell a diamond ring. Buy a $7,000 ring at Tiffany's and walk over the one of these guys and you'll be lucky to get $1,000 for your new ring.

Robin Hanson, the sex redistribution professor, interviewed.
"Well, I haven’t failed to notice that sex is a big thing. As I mentioned many times over the years, many people say explicitly sex is a big thing to them. Many people say explicitly that not having sex is a big thing. And that sounds plausible to me of course because I’ve sometimes had less than at other times. And that was a big thing for me. And of course, sex is a huge part of literature and common conversation. So it’s obviously a big thing to people. One question is how big, perhaps. But note, for the structure of my argument, I don’t need to claim that sex is as important or more important than income. I just need to say that it’s in the ballpark, comparable. That it’s the sort of thing you might consider. So you don’t actually have to choose between dealing with income inequality and sex inequality. You could be trying to deal with both, even if one is smaller than the other. To me the interesting point is that many people are all over and into income redistribution. And those people seem hostile to the idea of sex redistribution. And on the other side, the people interested in sex redistribution don’t seem to be very interested in income redistribution. And that’s an interesting phenomenon and puzzle."

While speculation swirls, Dwane Casey remains Raptors’ head coach - The Globe and Mail
Ujiri said he has met with Casey, but he declined to say whether the coach, who took the Raptors to a franchise-record 59 wins this season, will keep his job. The Raps president said his evaluation of the year is continuing.

“Coach Casey has been unbelievable for our organization and I treat it the same exact way that we’ve done every year, including the years that we’ve done well – to go back and look at everything,” Ujiri said. “I met with Casey for two hours this morning, same thing. I’m meeting with him, the staff, and we go through every single thing. It’s just our routine. It’s my responsibility as a leader to do that and we’ll go from there.”

Tough decisions to be made as Raptors begin off-season evaluation - Article - TSN
Ujiri spoke for over 25 minutes, saying an awful lot without saying much of anything at all, as usual. He’s always lamented the idea of having to sit up there with the wounds still fresh and answer questions about decisions he hasn’t made yet. If there was anything to take away from his press conference it was that: some hard decisions have to be made, changes – at least to some degree – are probably coming, and (also as usual) none of it will be rushed.

His first order of business, whenever he’s ready to get to it, will be determining the future of his head coach, Dwane Casey.

On Tuesday, TSN reported that the Raptors were strongly leaning towards making a coaching change. That remains the case, according to sources, but there are a number of moving pieces, which could delay a decision until later this month.

Kostas Antetokounmpo among Raptors pre-draft workouts on Wednesday - Sportsnet.ca
The team will get an up-close look at a pair of guards — Giddy Potts and Joe Chealey — and two forwards — Alan Herndon and Kostas Antetokounmpo.

Potts, a gifted three-point shooter, averaged 13.3 points per game and over 40 per cent from beyond the arc for Middle Tennessee and reached double figures in all but seven games last season.

Chealey notched 18 points per game for Charleston and topped 20 points 13 times. Herndon averaged just shy of 12 points and six boards for Wyoming. Potts, Chealey, and Herndon were all seniors last season.

Raptors’ Ujiri says, ‘Put it on me.’ | The Star
“I can’t pull the culture reset off this year, can I?” said Ujiri, grinning, as he opened his season-ending press conference.

Last season, of course, Ujiri pushed for a change in playing style, the culture reset that resulted in more youth and more passing and more three-point attempts, and it all went well until his 59-win team was crushed by a Cavaliers team that fully expected it to be a war.

Ujiri is not under pressure in terms of ownership, or job status, or even reputation. But, for the first time in Toronto, he has to deal with falling significantly short of expectations. It’s different.
