    Tracking Playoff Position

    Haha Well adleman was ****** at trade and won't play those losers!!! In reality, the Shane trade was mostly about getting Bud more miinutes (avg 15 per game since) and collecting whatever assets possible before Shane bolts to San Antonio or LA next year chasing a ring (supposedly what morey expects).

    I'm sure as a vet he has a strong voice, but Feigen says that Lowry and Hayes took over the vocal leadership role when Shane left. Hayes takes care of the motivational stuff and Lowry takes on the strategy and specifics of what guys need to be doing in each set. Adelman has shown some tremendous trust in Lowry to run the team. Interesting fact. The starting 5 for rockets are all late 1st or 2nd round picks. Lowry, Martin, bud, scola, Hayes. Lowry might be highest drafted out of that bunch. Of course with scola and bud now hurt, Patterson and lee step in and were picked 13th and 18th. A bunch of people in Houston are ****** at morey for getting marginal players and getting more out of them because they would rather the team tank and go for high puck than over achieve with hard working role players.

    Hey now. Not sure about Griz/rockets fate, but when me and pmi went to Memphis vs rice, the tigers played as bad as they have in 5 years. It was pathetic. Someone in crowd summed it up saying it was like 2 bad high school teams playing. Btw, there were more tiger fans there than rice fans. 2 to 1. As for Houston, they have benefited from handing reigns over to Lowry, getting upset Brooks off bench, and letting bud play more with Shane gone. Also, adelman has cut down rotation and is playing Lowry, Martin and Hayes ~42 min a night. But now with scola and bud injured, that might just be too much. This team post all-star break is how a team plays when the two leaders are Lowry and Hayes (see Chron.com story on how this is now their team with Shane gone).

    It's still early. Lots of injuries and trade demands to change things. But at this point, I see 3 tiers in the west. Tier 1: Lakers Jazz Spurs Mavs Hornets Tier 2: Griz Rockets Blazers Nugs Thunder Warriors Suns Tier 3: Wolves Kings Clippers That means only 3 teams from tier 2 will make it. 4 teams will wish they were in the east. As the season goes on, it will be interesting to see which tier 2 teams rise or fall a tier. For instance, Many expected the thunder to be tier 1 (myself included).

    obviously I have no knowledge on succesful police strategies.... but I went back and looked at many of the news stories the first 3 or so days he was gone.....this is taken from one of them.....from wreg I think I'm not sure I understand why they would say that over some variation of "no comment".........the police purposefully decided to tell the media the exact opposite (read: lie) instead of just not saying anything at all.....or did they not know about the 9-1-1 call until a day or two ago (which I think would fall under your unfathomable incompetence comment since checking his cell phone probably should have been the first action taken)..... I hope they quickly and swiftly find the responsible person(s)

    or at the very least not consistently say for a week that there was no foul play suspected...... how could there not be foul play suspected with a 9-1-1 call that ended in gunshots? is it fair to say the collierville police were straight up lying for the last week?

    I admit to not have followed all the stuff around this story super-closely the last week, but it sure seems the collierville police was less than upfront about things........ shouldn't there have been more public pressure about this being a homicide investigation if they had a 9-1-1 call that ended in gunshots?

    freaking horrible
  9. Least of our concerns? The pg position is always compared to the QB position. Having a top pg can cover for other weaknesses. See Chris Paul on bad hornet team.
  10. He's in the bottom quarter for sure. I'd take him over duhon, calderon, and Felton. Not sure about chalmers, Lou, and stuckey. And although he was the first pg taken in his draft, he is behind Brooks right now, but ahead of law and tied with stucke. And sessions. The thing is, there are lots of pg prospects each year. That is why many of us are intrigued by many of the rookie pg's.

    if the tigers have to pay money back from the final 4 appearance, then the ncaa should pay money back to advertisers and ticket holders for clearing a student-athlete to play who wasn't eligible.... if only the tigers were duke and rose was maggette, nothing would happen......

    PMI.... I have to tell you that your 49ers can suck it..... I love playing IDP fantasy leagues (that is, using individual defensive players).....Pat Willis was going to be my #1 LB in the draft.....until I saw the 49ers are going to a 3-4, which is known in IDP leagues as a stat killer.... MLB's in 4-3 get WAY more tackles than a MLB in a 3-4..... the same thing happened to Vilma in NY....he was great in a 4-3...tackle machine....then mangini came and switched to 3-4 and killed vilma's worth, so much he was shipped off to the saints after an injury for virtually nothing..... ugh.....I hate the 3-4

    Stephen Curry is a can't miss?

    I think surprisingly, harden had a better true shooting percentage than curry

    nope....the lions have now become the titans-lite......schwartz won't put up with that garbage..... on PFT, they have a list of teams that have said they have no interest in TO and it is darn near the whole league..... although TO's agent was seen in nashville today.....

    at this point I think TO might have to go to the Canadian football league to get a job....haha actually, my money is on the Peyton Mannings signing him to 1 year contract
