are actually the same but executed a lot better. The only difference is he had Dre at the elbow and run the offense through him. It's working and kept him engaged without the post up bullshit.

Having Avery Bradley does the team wonders in terms of veteran leadership and ability to show them how to defend. I think Anthony Tolliver is key because he gives them that big body at PF who can shoot. I rather have him as the first big guy off the bench as opposed to Leuer and Ellenson. Also, the addition of Langston Galloway is an underrated signing. Gives them the spark offensively with his shooting and can defend.

They didn't need to depend on their lottery pick, Luke Kennard, who will be a really good player down the road. The team is D-E-E-P that they can go back to back without a problem because of their depth. I'm excited.

You're right, the additions to the roster have been key early on both sides of hte ball. Tolliver, while I'm not personally a big fan, has hit some big shots and provided consitency off the bench. Kennard and Ellison will continue to bounc between the G-Leauge and the NBA, allowing them to get spot minutes with the big team and quaity minutse in GR's.

I can appreciate why you think this, but they've transitioned from a pick n roll offense to a motion offense.They are executing much better on both ends of the ball, but I'd still disagre with the fact that offensive principles are the same.  Involving Dre more frequently at the elbow and working through him more often, which is a change in offensive principle, has been a key. They're no longer relying on Jackson, or Ish, to facilitate movement off the ball on offense. They're able to spread the floor, move the ball more effiecnetly, and have some options when it comes to who to run the offense through.

Either way, I'm also excited for what the rest of the season hold.

It's a barrel aged imperial stout...thick like motor oil, not a lot of carbonation (light head). Has a hint of cherry and very malty. I don't normally drink heavy stouts like this...would be good as a winter warmer.  Someone on the interwebs compared it to Bells Expedition Stout, which I've never had, though Bells just started showing up out here.

definitely worth it.  and yeah, great likelihood of shooting more trees than bird, though we have the leaves off now so that should minimize that phenomenon tomorrow.   figure it's a last real chance before rifle season on wednesday.  

we're going to end up at the creek on the back side of the farm.  i haven't been there in weeks but it is a near-guarantee of grouse there.  hopefully some flushes tomorrow.

Just got home from a dinner with some friends, poured myself an Oberon and am waiting for the Washginton / Stanford game to start. Good times here. 

Even better, I came into the house without waking anyone up because everyone is apparently awake and it is still all go here.

We found some Amarula and have been going a little crazy with it. Amarula coffee, Amarula cake, Amarula straight into my face...

Amarula, Amarula, Amarula.

Some Labatt Light tonight, but thinking about going with some Jim Beam Red Stag and Coke tomorrow for game time. Never tried that combo before but it sounds very intriguing!
