    And we're playing Gonzaga too. Going to be a fun year if the variant doesn't derail things.

    2021 Training Camp Thread

    Thrilled with Moore. When we didn't get Waddle he was the guy I wanted in the 2nd round. Waddle by all reports has been very good in Miami but doesn't look like he's 100% healed from the ankle yet(should have never played in the bowl game). Miami is reportedly considering doing the same thing we...

    2021 NBA Free Agency and Trades

    Yep go on youtube and find the game where Klay hit 14 threes against the Bulls. Zach is "guarding" him on 9 or 10 of them. I'm a UCLA fan but my goodness, I was feeling sorry for him because Klay was locked in and the W's did what you should do, keep doing the same thing until they stop it, Zach...

    not yet but I do know many of them have all sorts of things that disqualify you. one example if you've seen a psychiatrist at any time and there's certain diagnoses, including PTSD, most of them completely disqualify you. It's a huge issue with older people where in some cases the psych will...

    2021 NBA Free Agency and Trades

    The concern is defense. Zach and Vucevic are great players but they're not very good on defense. Derozan has never been a good defender. Ball and Williams are good defenders but I'm not sure how good you can be with 3 mediocre defenders in your top 5 players?

    Wouldn't Colt McCoy be the backup?

    Probably on here already but local media says Curry will sign a 4 year deal to stay with Warriors

    2021 Training Camp Thread

    Everyone knows I wanted Waddle but Moore is a nice consolation prize IF he can stay healthy he will be very good. I wanted to get AJ Green last year so getting him the way we did worked out for us. Again if he can stay healthy he's a very good addition for Kyler.

    Remember protocol does not mean they have Covid. It can mean they were exposed to someone who does.

    Cards release C Lamont Gaillard

    There's an 85% goal the NFL set where if you're over it you have far less restrictions(masks etc) than if you're below it. So teams are apparently absolutely cutting guys who aren't vaccinated if they're under 85 and the player isn't some critical player. So obviously you don't cut D Hop over...

    Chandler Jones requested a trade

    I hope we can keep him but if he actually does want to be traded it IMO will be tough to get much value because nobody really knows yet how recovered he is. Hopefully they can smooth this over the defense appears to be built on the assumption the pass rush will make it easier for the secondary...

    2020-21 Around the NBA Thread

    Yeah I'm not aware of their reasons I only know why it was important to Holiday. It's just not as big a deal to NBA players as it was after the Dream Team did it

    2020-21 Around the NBA Thread

    There are all sorts of issues with the Team USA but I think the biggest one is that it's no longer that big of a deal to NBA players to play in the Olympics IMO. That's why Holiday flying out there was such a big deal he just won an NBA title and sacrificed his own time to go over there...

    Hopkins Threatens to Retire Over NFL Vaccine Policy

    Agree with the 2nd paragraph the easy appeals are already long ignored. The first one though I don't agree. I don't think it's not listening it's not buying the response they give. The most common ones are it's not fully FDA approved yet so I won't take it, I'll stick to HCQ and Ivermectin that...

    Hopkins Threatens to Retire Over NFL Vaccine Policy

    Frustrating. he also tweeted his girlfriends brother in military has heart problems since having the vaccine but then deleted it. He also tweeted he's going to play another 9 years so I don't think he was serious about retiring. AFter last season with several guys including Fitz getting it...

    Giannis vs Ayton / Middleton vs Bridges

    He can but right now he has no game at all off the bounce. More than one dribble and if it's not a dunk or layup he's not scoring. Middleton is no Kyrie off the bounce but he's very good at getting to his spot rising and hitting the midrange off teh bounce.

    Changes for Next Season?

    Ayton's defense improved by leaps and bounds but he's still so incredibly frustrating because the production doesn't equal the tools. At his size, length and vertical how can he only block 1.2 shots per game? DBPM was 0 this year, he was negative the first 2 years so he improved but VanGundy...

    Suns @ Bucks Tuesday Finals game thread 7-20-2021 - Game 6

    sorry guys great season. It's tough to win it all the first year there's usually a growth process but that sucked. Giannis was amazing, normal FT night from him and you probably win but he made everything.

    Suns @ Bucks Tuesday Finals game thread 7-20-2021 - Game 6

    Ayton is so soft. Paul gives him a dunk he shoots a fadeaway. Even the layup he made he avoided the contact with a running start just dunk it, Portis is going to foul you

    No wonder nobody was responding posting in the wrong game thread. I'm not sure you can beat the Bucks if Giannis keeps making FT's like that

    Suns @ Bucks Wednesday Finals game thread 7-14-2021 - Game 4

    Hilarious the Bucks fans booing the call on Portis when Booker basically does what Giannis does everytime downcourt, without the discontinued dribble. Yes it's probably not a foul on Portis but half the free throws Giannis shoots are the same thing. Pretty remarkable it's tied, Giannis is making...

    The Market 2021

    DOW down over 700 now. The numbers I saw this morning and the experts said so are actually better than expected considering last weeks numbers that spooked the market. So I guess we'll see. I do think Covid spooking the market is a little odd, yes the variant is a problem but I don't think...

    The Market 2021

    Right that's what the headlines say but the actual numbers are quite good, last week it seemed prices were higher than expected so we saw a dip, this morning the numbers are saying there's actually less inflation and more growth than expected. Several earnings announcements have surprised to the...
