  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    Uggh, sounds like last night's game was the worst of the bunch so far this year. I (thankfully) didn't get to watch....
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    Sharone, I share some of your frustrations, but Saric getting his "minutes reduced in friggin Europe" is not one of them. He's clearly playing for an old school coach who has a real problem with younger players getting minutes. He's...
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    Yeah I don't know what to make of Stauskas to this point. He has not been able to make 3's with any consistency even though he's gotten his share of open looks. On the flip side, I've been impressed/surprised by...
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    Amazing thing about the Sac trade is the Sixers have the right to swap picks with the Kings in the upcoming draft (if pick is in the top 10) AND they can do the same thing in the FOLLOWING draft!!...
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    I usually loathe the classic "scrappy" point guard type players like McConnell, but damn I really like his game so far. I watched him at AZ a fair bit over the past few seasons with the other NBA prospects they...
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    **DX is essentially "fanboy" rankings too. Most "professional" college & HS scouting is (unless you're employed by a pro team). It's a website that may get a lot of hits but their scouts are just some dudes who watch a...

    Isn't Saric only 21 years old? To be in the top 50 in Euroleague at age 21 seems a nice feat to me, no? Another good season there and I'm sure his "rankings" will rise for whatever that's worth. I...

    My take on last night's game: Let's start with Okafor. If you watched him play last night and didn't get excited thinking about his future then you're dead inside. He's 19-years old. Think on that for a minute. 3-years from...

    For what it's worth, Saric was just voted by NBA GM's as the best International player NOT currently in the NBA....

    A Shirley Temple is just Ginger Ale with a splash of grenadine (grenadine is a sweet, red, non-alcoholic syrup). Again, it's not the pillar of a healthy diet, but certainly not even close to something that people should be grousing...
  • Commented on Everything Is Under Control!
    You do realize Shirley Temples are non-alcoholic, right? They're certainly not a protein-infused green-drink but they're not getting anyone drunk....

    Dollar Bill, Just when I think I'm out...you pull me back in with lines like "wroten Tony off..." Damn you......

    Anytime, big guy....
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Yeah he'll definitely get his shot blocked a fair bit, but his post game is so advanced for a 19 year old, and he draws so much contact, I have no doubts he'll be ok. I want to see him...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Okafor looked like he petered out towards the end of the game. Lost some lift off his shot for sure. Finished with 18 pts and 6 boards but was definitely worse in the fourth quarter. Got blocked a few times...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    I know it's summer league but Okafor just dominated the entire Knicks front line in the first quarter of this game. Can't recall this type of offensive post presence on the Sixers for a loooong time. Sharone Wright notwithstanding :)...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Man, you're really sticking with the Jahlil Okafor is a "slow-footed Al Jefferson" aren't you? Damn I just don't see it. I feel like at WORST, Okafor is Al Jefferson. At 19, he's already bigger (taller and heavier), has a...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    I think motor = cardio for Okafor in this case. 260+ lbs is a lot to haul at altitude in your first game in months. He was slow to get back defensively a few times after thinking he got hacked...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Don't know anything about Holmes but was def impressed with him tonight. Didn't know he had that range. I watched McConnell a bit at AZ and thought he was very good tonight running the team. Gotta hit open threes if...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Zach Lowe says he's hearing the deal could include a Sacto draft pick as well. Wonder who the overseas assets are?...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Per Woj, Sixers trading "overseas assets" for Stauskas, Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. Sixers wanted Stauskas, agreed to take on contracts of Thompson and Landry...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    If I had to speculate, I'd guess that because Embiid just hit the 1-year mark since the injury first occurred, the doctors had a certain benchmark set as to how far along they'd like the healing to be after a...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    Now this is a great question. I think most people would agree that a healthy Embiid is a better prospect than a healthy Towns but until we get a couple of injury-free years out of Embiid in Philly it'll be...

  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    FWIW, D'Angelo Russell jumped 39.5" in the vertical jump test today. Really good, especially for someone with questions about his "explosiveness."...

    Kristaps article from Grantland. He's definitely an intriguing prospect. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/who-is-kristaps-porzingis/...

    I don't know why it makes me so happy to picture Dollar Bill feverishly searching the internets for Drake songs....
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    It's similar to the NFL in the way that the running game has fallen out of favor a bit. Yet, if you can find an exceptional running back and build a strong O-line you can still have great success. Look...
