I think the record is legit. For one, I've seen JS' other runs, and though his patterns are very unorthodox, his shotmaking and short position control are out of this world. He has several legit 400+...

If this match actually happens I'd be happy to donate a little bit to the people streaming it. If we all chip in, maybe there'd be enough to get good commentary, a quality stream etc.

I don't know what White Diamond tips are made of exactly, but if they're purely synthetic, then they'd be probably the best option. Otherwise it's phenolic, probably.

Agree with you on shot clock. In my opinion, shot clocks only add to the game. Even blackball has a 1 minute shotclock, and that's a way more tactical and slow paced game. It adds pressure and a...
