“This is going to get a little crazy, all right,” said Clarkson, “so I’m going to take y’all a little left on this. Y’all know how we got dogs and stuff, right? So, I think there were bigger people in the world before us, and the dinosaurs were their pets.”

Trolling, or idiot?

He is a little off saying they were pets, maybe some were. But there is for sure some validity of larger humans in the past. Also, it's not far fetched to say humans and dinosaurs roamed the Earth at the same time.

That excerpt in the article is gold. I like that the other guy, Mims - LeBron's friend, business partner and a Cavs executive - does not believe in Elvis (or that he was some sort of character?), or dinosaurs. It was at that point that Clarkson piped in that he does believe in dinosaurs, but that they were just the pets of a race of supersized humans (I sensed zero sarcasm). Also believes aliens walk among us in human form and that dinosaurs are probably just sleeping on the bottom of the ocean biding their time to come back out (I'm guessing he watched the preview for Pacific Rim 2 recently).

Hilarious. The world is definitely better off now that everyone has a voice. It's important to know just how stupid some of these guys are.

I think Clarkson is an okay player in this league. Glad to have him no doubt. At the same time, just watching him play makes me wonder about his IQ. His BBIQ definitely isn't good and I find myself going "whyyyyy would you do that" when he's playing.

So it wouldn't shock me if he's just a complete idiot.

Lol. Maybe a tad less ridiculous than thinking a race of superhumans roamed the earth 100 million years ago (humans go back about 200k years...) and apparently cremated every one of their dead in order to keep their existence a secret (the last superhuman jumped off the side of the Earth I'm assuming). I do like to envision a world where baseball is played with redwood trees and every cave is adorned with a pterodactyl in their bird cage and a T-Rex is the ultimate guard dog.

Thinking about the 7lb thing seriously, I guess it's possible if he came into the game dehydrated and drank a gallon of water over the game (a gallon weighs almost 9 lbs I think).

Fair enough. I don't know. But I looked it up, a gallon does weigh 8.3 lbs. So on the surface, it does not seem completely inconceivable for me (it's just that normally if you're drinking that much you're sweating/pissing most of it back out). For what it's worth, it's not uncommon for marathon runners to gain weight during their run due to their heavy water intake.

They discussed that as well but it's over a longer period of time. And a few 2-3 pounds is different very different than 7. Plus he played like 40 minutes that night. He wouldn't have had the time during the game to drink a gallon. It would have had to have been half time or post game. They said something to the ilk of hed have to have been extremely dehydrated and wearing little when weight first. Then had to have had an IV and food and a lot of water while being weight in the clothes that he sweated on to gain that type of weight and been weighed much later than the game ended. The way it's "reported" is he was weighed prior to game then weighed right after. Per them that's not improbable that's physically impossible.

I gain between 5lb and 12lb throughout the day if I don't carefully monitor my water intake. You can be heavier after a workout bc your body floods your muscles with water to remove built up acids. If he hydrated prior to being weighed, 7lb is easy.

A gallon weighs 8 pounds, but it's quickly absorbed into the blood stream and thick muscles. Our bodies take our macros and water and convert it to energy as quickly as possible. You couldn't absorb enough to actually gain that much weight.

The body doesn't break down water in any significant amount because it NEEDS water as is. If you drink a gallon of water, you weigh 8lb more until you sweat or pee it out. Law of conservation of mass and energy. Combine that with the fact that he's not drinking water but sports drinks containing electrolytes (salts) which cause you to retain water. If he hydrates throughout the game and then after prior to being weighed, 7lb is easy.

Not sure if there's a nice way to share those opinions. Already if you're a Christian you're saying that there's a guy who said he was the king of a certain group of people, and those people called bs. And instead of realizing they probably know the most about their own group you decided that you do and that you're going to swear by this guy that you never mets claims second hand. That already says a lot about someone's ego and level of intellect. And then to add in that you believe all of Joseph Smith's nonsense? And then to accept that they took out the racist parts when being racist stopped being cool. Mormons normally tend to be kind and well-intentioned, but also borderline special education. More so than the rest that is.

PSD...Where archaeology experts come to talk sports! Although there is no evidence to what Clarkson said, and based on the information we have, he is likely wrong, it is impossible to say that he is unequivocally wrong. Until we have accounted for every organism that has ever lived (which is less likely than humans and dinosaurs coexisting) we cannot say that anything pertaining to the man-dinosaur relationship theory is 100% true or false. The only answer that is 100% correct is that we don't actually know and probably never will.

That's all you had to say. He has absolutely no basis for his belief in the theory. It doesn't matter if 1000 years from now there ARE found to be giant human remains that date back to the dinosaurs. He has no reason, right now, to believe it. He likely watched a youtube video and suddenly discounted the scientific opinion of thousands of people much more well versed in the topic than he is, because that's the world we live in. Two hours on the internet means you "did your research."

When you factor in he is a 260lb freak of nature... that’s like my 180 lb body gaining 4 lbs which I can do easily in a sitting. This guy is a machine of the highest caliber. I say he did that ish easily. He’s 260 of pure muscle. 8 pounds is 2 pounds to the normal human.

Probably not, but the bible places man after animals but also existing closely enough for man to name them all and tons of folks believe in the bible, so it's not too different. Larger forms of man are also not unheard of, e.g. angels, nephalim, etc. At least he believes in something. I'm starting to believe dinosaurs were G-d's special interest for a while, and then G-d said okay bye.

That sounds like a really good comparison. Both with low IQs with Ellis easily being the better player and scorer.

As for their games, Clarkson likes to shoot the ball a bit more and is taller at 6''5, while Ellis likes to drive in more and is a better finisher at the rim. Clarkson likes to get into that 8-10 foot range and create separation for a fadeaway.

Nope.

I blame the media. You see things on CNN like a debate between a climate scientist and a corporate sellout climate change denier, and they act like both are reasonable positions.
