    David Roddy? 260 pound small forward??

    I like Roddy and expect to see a lot of him this year. A little older and a lot smarter goes a long way for a rookie. Speaking of smarts, its limited due to his rookie role but I saw some very good passing from Ziaire. It'll probably be years before his ball handling stands up to heavy pressure but imo he'll run the point better than Bane. We'll see if he gets the same investment of minutes during the summer league. It paid off for Bane. If, _if_, he has the knack at point, we have a whole new look for possible backup point duty. They obviously felt we didn't need Melt. Do we need to outbid for Tyus, who may want a #1 spot anyway? Bane played the point at TCU. Chandler may progress fast enough. And if there is not a deal for a point guard, my guess is that the FO and coaches are including Ziaire in the mix.

    DeAnthony Melton Appreciation Thread

    I enjoyed watching DeAnthony. His game is exciting on offense and defense. In a new setting, with a new cast and growth in his game, he could be a solid player for contender 6ers. Thanks and good luck DeA.

    All this talk of KD in Memphis brings back old times. 504 Gateway Time-out No, not that. That's a here and now thing. This:

    I guess I should have asked what you meant by "entire career." I have high expectations. You have low. Time will tell.

    His junior year "Williams was a star for Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks, California) last season, averaging 27 points, 10.5 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks per game with shooting splits of 48/35/88." He transfered to elite Sierra Canyon for his senior year. The conference made him sit out the first 10 games. He was not the top scorer, but still, the LA Times named him boys' basketball player of the year.
  6. Ja, because of another code, may need to delete his tweet, but I'm not likewise driven. I don't give a flip about the league and its image going forward. I only care about how the league treats my team, the Grizzlies. If they pull a double standard on this, it will be a big black mark. I don't care if TV money is the golden goose. Sportsmanship is the goose. "Whiner" whiners have at.

    Will the NBA say a dirty play is OK?

    Draymond likes to justify his play by bring up the old days.

    This nail-biting nut-puncher is the best shooter in the history of the game.

    "I'm not even that kind of player." That was Poole's defense of injuring Ja. At the end of finals game 6 when Curry punches Smart in the nuts, its Poole on the bench that jumps up and down and celebrates most with Curry. My guess is that intentional injury is the reason that Tatum was not himself in most of the series. What does it doesn't matter if you have one of the most talented players in the league if the league lets dirty players f him up? Btw, as usual, the refs ignored the GS dirty play. While the game went on around him, Smart was on his knees, and Curry, Poole and the refs reminded us all of NBA showtime.

    Burr says NBA is rigged

    The on-topic question is why are you using extreme strawman arguments like this one and the irrelevant lottery rigging issue. Did you even watch the Burr clip? His first statement, "the NBA is sort of low-key rigged" and then he talks showbiz and money. Can you explain ref tolerance of in-their-face Draymond behavior? Maybe you're media or profit from the games, if not, keep dreaming and calling names.

    These guys really like Tyus.

    Burr says NBA is rigged

    Its ironic how you sheep like to talk about tin foil hats and whack-a-doodles. My guess is that, among fans, you folks who believe that showbiz and profit do not effect refs' calls are the weirdos.

    "Tin foil hat" 😉 Watch the swinging pendulum. You are getting sleepy. Repeat after me. MONEY IS NOT A MOTIVE! Repeat after me. MONEY IS NOT A MOTIVE!

    Burr says NBA is rigged

    When Kimmel asks the Boston guy about the Celtics in the finals, Burr changes his tune a little. The Celtics "fit the script" and the games are "massaged to be exciting." 😀 It would be sweet to be a homer fan in the finals.

    Will the NBA say a dirty play is OK?

    This thread is basically about cheating. This is a slow time of year so just for laughs and infomation, I'll try to stretch it to fairness. Here's a brainy and sometimes funny take on it. Sabine Hossenfelder has an excellent science channel on Youtube, "as simple as possible, but not any simpler."

    The first game GS loss to Boston was nice because in the second half, Draymond was such a big help to Boston, 😀 bad shot, missed defensive assignments, missed free throws and terrible foul.
  19. More and more we are made aware of the lies told to us about this horror. Latest is that the door was not propped open, as cops claimed that video showed. And now it appears that the top cop has lawyered up. The biggest and boldest lie is most repeated, "we need good guys with guns to stop the bad guys with guns." The only reason that good guy cops didn't breach the doors and/or windows of that classroom is fear of the bad guy's military assault weapons. If you voted Republican, would this issue be enough to make you vote for someone who favored reasonable restictions?
  20. The amendment is probably intentionally vague. You talked about the meaning of "militia" to the founders at a time when we had no standing army. Wing-nuts ignore the "Militia" part entirely. So obviously they have no interest in "a well-regulated Militia" because they need the military weapons to destroy "the security of a free state." They believe that phrase gives them the right to seize control from elected officials. They just tried it. So I guess the meaning of the amendment is in the eye of the beholder. Question: Why would that amendment stop Congress from passing laws on issues like you and ODK discussed? and other "big changes": background checks unregulated sales military assault weapons high capacity magazines ghost guns 3d printed guns bump fires silencers Answers: Because corporations, like the gun lobby, control the SCOTUS. That, and wing-nut propaganda: One of President Bill Clinton's accomplishments was a ban on assault weapons. I'll bet a third of the people in Arkansas, his home state, believe that Bill and Hillary probably ordered the murder of over 100 people. And poison for profit like QAnon, election lies and unresticted gun sales.
  21. I hope your title is correct because this was horror. It will make you sick if you think about it for too long. The Senate might make small changes like improving background checks, but no big changes until this issue makes blockers lose some races. And that ain't happening. This court is gonna go hog wild on corp.money=free.speech.

    Jaren 1st team all Defense

    Congratulations to Jaren, Trip, JJJ and 3J. He earned it. He was attacked plenty by teams wanting him off the floor. The future is brighter.

    Dillon Brooks Has to Go

    It was a messed up season as far as injuries and outages. So with a bunch of young guys who can improve, that may be a reason to bring it back and take another shot. A lot of the Dillon shooting hierarchy stuff would have been worked out on the court if not for Dillon and Ja's injuries. (Is that the future? Well I guess that's another thread.) Dillon at 26 is not the norm for a starter. He played 3 years in college at Oregon so does not have so much NBA mileage on the body. Still the injuries are a minor worry and will probably be the reason he nixes comparable offers and takes a reasonable raise to remain a Grizzly (other players too, I hope.) On a lighter note. You would be matching the roster to Ja. Maybe they could both be injured at the same time. But seriously, my opinion is that Dillon is the best wing defender, and the guts and balls of this team, and Jaren is the future best player on the team. Edit: I will add that there are good defenders in the league that are not high-level scoring threats. The book on Dillon is probably "don't let him get going" so you are also making the scorers work hard on defense.
