Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Those aren't capris, it's just that, even off of the court, it is not possible to fully cover Andre Drummond. /Chuck Norris
|4 weeks 2 hours ago||In THAT case.||
Maybe I'm underestimating Kevin Love, but I would rather have Klay Thompson, David Lee and draft picks. Lee is virtually a non-shooting Kevin Love, but that's offset by Klay Thompson who happens to be great at bombing 3's. Between Rubio and Barea being shot creators, the players around them only have to worry about finiishing more than ball-handling (covering for both Klay's and GR3's big weaknesses)
|4 weeks 4 hours ago||Have always been a fan of||
Have always been a fan of Collison, so Stauskas, Darren and Boogie (DeMarcus Cousins) on the same team just made me a fake Sac. Kings fan.
One thing, it kind of bothers me when teams trade stars (Kevin Love this time) because they could leave in free agaency and the team would "get nothing" for them. Technically true, but a lot of the times the flexibility of the freed cap space is worth way more than the bad contracts, bad attitudes, and/or bad play that The T-Wolves might get if they get too trade despearate.

or maybe Michigan Sweet 16 Muppets after beating South Dakota State and VCU, but we would never....Oh wait, never mind. Blouses!
|5 weeks 5 days ago||The football analogy (to my||
The football analogy (to my un-trained eyes) to Nigeria, would be a team that just threw a hail mary on every play... I have a feeling Bosnia is going to put 1 or 2 more goals in though. too much attacking talent
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Nigeria 1 - 0 Bosnia-Herzegovina||
and Nigeria has an undeserved lead, should be tied now, but Bosnia has still looked the better team so far
|5 weeks 5 days ago||That's the great part, this||
That's the great part, this group is just as talented, we just don't have that one super-recruit that 2012 had (Mitch McGary). We just got used to this level of talent that quickly. Now let's see if they can develop like Burke\Stauskas\Morgan\Levert\everyone (I love Beilein) did.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||The fact that he also has a||
The fact that he also has a Northwestern and Duke version, makes me like it a little less, still it's kinda cool
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Living up to the Group of||
Living up to the Group of Death moniker.... No doubt that 3 of these teams deserve to move on, and I'm guessing Portugal will show some quality play before long.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Ridiculous game!! I know a||
Ridiculous game!! I know a Ghana loss is best for US(A), but damn I still want to see this upset. (due to Family ties and the one dude with the crazy Mohawk)
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Each player invited gets a||
Each player invited gets a table, and the player can have whoever he wants at the table (family, friends, ex-coaches, etc). I'm guessing Beilein will be there with subs for everybody.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||But Germany winning the||
But Germany winning the group could be decided by the time we play them. If they get 2 wins against Portugal and Ghana, and we're at a Win (Ghana) and a Draw (Portugal).... they may be content to play a Draw with no injuries, and the US go through on Goal differential.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, that has to be a shot||
Yeah, that has to be a shot on 1st touch....He tried to play it, and had a bad 1st touch and couldn't get back in control before the defender stepped in.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||GOOAAAAAAALL. Ridiculous,||
GOOAAAAAAALL. Ridiculous, Ecuador doesn't take advantage of a chance on one end and The Swiss score on a great counter attack. Good game, especially the last couple of minutes.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Winston is already a high||
Winston is already a high 4-star/5-star-ish player, don't think you slow play kids that talented. Offer them both. Either one would be a huge Get in my opinion.
|8 weeks 3 hours ago||As long as Chandler does not||
As long as Chandler does not see the pitch and noone gets injured I'll be happy. I wouldn't mind seeing Beasley and either Yedlin/Brooks as the fullbacks and letting Fabian Johnson get forward (maybe move Bedoya to the bench??)
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||With Isaac's size, I can||
With Isaac's size, I can see him and either Green/Smith in a 2 man backfield, with Ty talking on the more big boy role of blocking, running routes, and catching screens, while still getting a good number of carries.
|8 weeks 6 hours ago||haha, that July 2014 delivery||
haha, that July 2014 delivery estimate just became August 2014, I'll put that in the 'Good Problems' pile.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Ghana and the US||
I have natural allegiances to both the US (obviously) and Ghana ..... Looking forward to them somehow managing to lose to each other and being eliminated in the group stages.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, to my untrained eye,||
Yeah, to my untrained eye, looks like we have the effort, talent and skill needed on the backline....but they have a lot of work to do in working together
|8 weeks 4 days ago||This referee is HORRIBLE!||
This referee is HORRIBLE! both Altidore and Dempsey fouled (Dempsey in the box) and no call at all.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||GOOOAAAAAALLLL!! great goal,||
GOOOAAAAAALLLL!! great goal, Fabian Johnson with the finish and the delivery from Bradley was perfect.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Dont care if it counts or||
Dont care if it counts or not, that's great set piece play... Altidore should have a goal right now.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Dempsey has to do better with||
Dempsey has to do better with these opportunities... nice hold up play by Altidore though
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Defenders looking up to the||
Defenders looking up to the challenge so far.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||I actually like Greg||
I actually like Greg Monroe. Especially when everyone is always looking for big men...Build around Andre Drummond and Monroe. Get whatever you can for Josh Smith, and everyone else on the roster should be fair game if a good deal comes, but those 2 should be cornerstones.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||While this sucks, Yes, yes||
While this sucks, Yes, yes we absolutely had to get rid of Ben Gordon at that time. (but I am pissed that Dumars gave him that horrible contract in the 1st place.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||A couple of years ago,||
A couple of years ago, Detroit traded Ben Gordon and a protected draft pick to the Charlotte Hornets for Corey Maggette (a deal made to get Ben Gordon's horrible contract off the team). This year that pick was top-8 protected (so if Detroit's pick was 8 or better, Detroit would have kept the pick). Since Detroit ended up getting the 9th pick, Charlotte gets it.
