I moved to DC this year, so the family and I will brave the masses and head to to National Mall to see the fireworks from the Lincoln Memorial while listening to the 1812 Overture being played live. 'Merica!

If it were an act, I'd be understanding of your position. But this is no act, my friend. Jim is a Michigan OG and livin' large with EUTM. Daily.

best Pistons-related post/comment of 2015. Great info here. Previously I was in the Jennings camp, but this has me much more confident in direction of Reggie.
I would so love to see THJr in Detroit.
A dilema at pick #4 would be great to have. Winslow gives superb defense as well as solid offense, and is a player at a postion of tremendous need. But Russell is the potential real star in the draft at a position not in need. It might be worth taking Russell and pushing back our team development for a year. If they do take Russell, I wonder if they could trade KCP for a SF?
Either way, this would be a wonderful trade... which has me pretty convinced it won't happy.

Not sure why, but I'm drawn to see your vieo... but you have the settings on private.

I have now decided that I will attnd these two weeks of life.

Fun, love it. But hard. Played HS football and that physically kicked my ass because I wasn't strong enough, but I wasn't nearly as tired playing a full game as I might be playing basketball.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||And I'm no expert either but||
And I'm no expert either but I've played college basketball and have been a HS varsity coach. I think what Lebron has done has been incredible. I can't remember rooting for him once in my entire life. But he's won me over this series and I'm pulling for CLE. 48 minutes of start and stop sprinting. Left and right movement, bang and jumping at that level is so hard a I feel like it's a ton harder that many in this board are realizing!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Shit||
Most comments here are shit. Yes some of the wording of the article sounds superlative, but if anyone is better qualified to judge these matters than the experts at the gathering than please let us know. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Otherwise, to me it sounds like the usual Lebron bashing.

It might not be the hardest thing an athlete has done, but his minutes and energy are record setting in the modern era of basketball. If it were easy more great players would be doing it.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The first time I went to TotP||
The first time I went to TotP was to bring my preschool son. We had a blast. We walked around, listened to a little music, bought ice cream, and stayed and ate popcorn and watched School of Rock on the outdoor screen. He roughly remembers the movie now almost nine years later, but I sure remember it. I had a great time exploring AA with him.

I love this guy and what he means to Detroit and UM
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I bet a big part of what he||
I bet a big part of what he is seeing that makes him offer these mostly-unheard of players is that these kids came to his camp, excelled on the field, but more importantly, competed like the kind of championship team Harbaugh will build. Harbaugh is very clear how much he believes that the competition fire is more critical than raw skill. It's easier to pick out raw skill from kids you watch on film or even watch from the stands. It's sometimes a very different thing to be able to judge fire in the belly and love in the heart. I would bet a lot of money that these low-rated kids that Harbaugh has offered bring that specific fighter to his team. Harbaugh knows what he's doing. He's going to load up with players that make the whole a better team.
I have a lot of confidence.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||9.9 rating||
I enjoy looking at imdb.com to see what the general feelings are about various shows.
This episode is rated 9.9 - the highest of any episode in the series. #2 is the Red Wedding at 9.7. I guess that over the coming week as more ratings come in, the score will go down a litte. But I'm still amazed that over 5,000 people have rated this episode with the avg being 9.9. That's remarkable and I'm guessing the highest rated non-obsure TV episode ever on imdb.
I loved it. The last 30 minutes were flawless in my opinion.

Duncan is taller and bigger than I was expecting. I Imagine trying to defend against his 3pt shooting will be difficult.

I have the most fun watching Curry go nuts on the floor, so for that reason, I'm hoping the Warriors win. I'm hoping for a long, exciting series.

The Longest Yard but with a Great Escape ending.

I used to play basketball at Jackson Federal Prison against their monthly intramural champs as part is a church ministry type of thing. This is like that but, you know, with more crazy.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||The longest yard||
The Longest Yard Peruvian indie film version produced by Harbaugh. Same as the Adam Sandler version but with 10x the hitting and competition at every position.

Jalen took money and told the truth to the grand jury. But it wasn't tens of thousands. He would get $50 here and there while in university, but most of it was when he was a poor youth growing up playing ball in Detroit - like a lot of kids did encluding the kids who weren't good enough to go to college. Martin bought shoes for tons of kids in the area.
Jalen has been very honest about these things, and I respect him for it.

Jimmy King on Weber: (paraphrased)
"I think he has personal issues. He likes a little drama obviously carrying on with certain things, relationships that could have been handled years ago. It's a personal character flaw that he has. Just over the years of dealing with him trying to talk with hin and speak with him. Nothing's really hanged. People who are smart enough and close enough understand situation. The quote that hes saying that we're trying to make it about ourselves is actually about him. So really he's exposing himself."
Jimmy King also makes it clear that Weber did not tell the truth about the timing of the documentary and asking him to be a part of it. Jimmy King calls them "100% lies" and blames it on Weber's "character flaws." King is both "embarrased and dissapointed" with how Weber has chosen to handle the entire situation since he left the university.
Jimmy King was calm and reasonable. Respectful but unwavering.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It could also mean that Jalen||
It could also mean that Jalen finally broke his silence about Weber in general. He was always careful about what he said about Chris. He clothed all his words in brotherhood and not laying too much blame on him. He generally spoke with respect about Weber (even if it wasn't deserved).
But Chris called Jalen a liar and tried to tarnish the documentary - a piece of work I'm certain Jalen has a lot of love and pride about. Jalen had to respond. And he chose to say what he truly felt. In that sense, for the first time he spoke openly and negatively about Weber.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||I respect your sentiment, but||
I respect your sentiment, but I have to disagree.
Jalen wasn't overly negative at all about Weber in the documentary. He was fair and explained a difficult situation giving some important points that helped explain and somewhat justify Weber's possible thinking at the time. Jalen can't do anything to erase what Weber did. That isn't Jalen's fault.
Weber is NOT CLOSE to the Michigan Man that Jalen is. And by that I mean that Jalen speaks up for UM more than almost any other former athelete. Jalen openly wears Maize and Blue often, speaking about it as his home. Additionaly, Jalen has found success off the court and outside of business by being a major figure supporting Detroit youth. He has been exceptional.
Weber, in general, had done none of these things. I love Weber, played basketball against him, volunteered with him while at UM, and am not one of the people who wants him disassociated with the university. But still, Weber isn't in the same league as Jalen when it comes to representing our university well.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Ouch||
Fuck I read that as Ohio State and my heart was filled with betrayal and shock.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||This sentiment bothers me.||
This sentiment bothers me. You don't have to like Jalen, his attitude, or his personality. He's a sports entertainer (among many other things such as school founder for under-privaleged Detroit youth). He entertains like an play-by-play or color anouncer.
But man, that dude supports Michigan and always has. Yeah, he loves himself, but I can't think of an alum athlete that vocally supports UM more than he does.
We would be so lucky to have more Jalen Roses on our side. Quit hating on him and embrace him - he wants to be part of the family.
