"Getting high off beating Purdue is the college football equivalent of drinking mouthwash for the alcohol content."
That is just perfect.

Great line on Darboh from the coach, and an ethic the whole team seems to be developing.

|1 week 6 days ago||That sign is nuts, N-V-T-S nuts...||
... and the false patina is an extra-special overlay of douchey-ness.
Also can't help noticing that it leaves all of the "talented group" and "gifted people" unnamed.
Except, of course, the Brandon's.

Oh, and you're delusional.

It sure seems like ABC is pushing for LeBron to get it, win or lose.

Takes me back to college.

Is it worse than winding down the shot clock then jacking up a three, which is often the Cavaliers offense in crunch time? Also, if anything I think Curry has been a little too passive at times (though I think he's done great work being patient in making the first pass on the pick and roll). It's a good sign that he's gotten aggressive again, as the score line will show.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Curry gets a ton of hockey assists ...||
Those initial passes off the pick and roll don't count on the box score, but his work running the offense has to take that into account as well as the turnovers. Takes a lot of discipline to stick to making the first pass, especially when you're the best shooter on the floor.

Does regular play-by-play for Knicks when not on national call. Great as a homer, but shouldn't be one for the finals. Horrible.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||That sums it up.||
The constant push-offs are infuriating and the ridiculous turnovers are exasperating.

Did not have the luxury of logging in yesterday and did not see the prior post. GIF is fantastic.

... it was his being described as "dean" that set me back. Doesn't sit right. The other stuff is standard fare defense of a former colleague, as you note.

|34 weeks 2 days ago||I think Walton should do what he want to do, which likely ...||
... is to leave it all out there on the floor like the rest of the guys did today. That attitude will get M back to Big Ten title winning form much quicker than your approach of "constructive pessimism" to coin a term.

It's been more fun to watch the collection of no-names the Knicks now put out on the court than any of the cut and paste "contenders" Dolan has pressured his GMs to concoct over the last decade or so.

Fade away finger roll. If that's a thing.

We came out of the gate strong. The team knows they can win here.
