    We did not just trade for Oubre

    Now I guess I don't have to get Chris Wallace a 7D chess board for Christmas!

    I think this deal was for MEL Brooks.

    Team Hero v Trailblazers 12/12/2018

    With homage to the proud Portland Trailblazers franchise, here are some of my honorable mentions for last night: Money Mike (Lil' Lionel) Hollins Uncle Cliffy Jackson, Jr. Marc "The Duck" Gasolworth JaMychal Kersey Marshon "He Keeps BOTH Teams In The Game" Ainge Slo Mo Twardzik. Scrappy guy right? Not sure this is a good comp but man, I just had to write "Slo Mo Twardzik". Plus, a shout-out to Joakim "Off Night" Walton for showing up which is half the battle some days. Still wanna see some more DJ "The Glide" Stephens and Jevon "Terry Boulder" Porter but oh well....
  4. It would be a great win, but it wouldn't be a bad loss. Although a blowout would be bad. No Moral Victory potential though. This could turn into a Signature Victory for the week.

    Memphis Grizzlies vs LA Lakers - 12/8/18

    Is Slo Time guarding LeBron? If not, he should. Or we should throw different looks at him. Even Jaren. Jaren should also have the green light.

    Cool jjj article

    JJJ makes up for the Tyreke Botch somewhat. On the flip side, we coulda used some extra 2nd rounders -- I thought this draft was pretty deep although I think it had a lot of land mines. Jevon Carter should be a solid addition once he hits the main roster (I would have him as the 3rd string point guard by the playoffs). Marshon B. Free has yet to find the timing, the range, and the groove yet, so "Reke's replacement" leaves a lot to be desired. Although Marshon hit some shots last night (I think) and doesn't hog the ball as much as Tyreke did. Marshon B. Free has more range, too. He also doesn't mind coming off the bench (I think). Hopefully we get a good 2nd round special (or two) next June. A backup 3 and D specialist at the 3 (or 2) might be the thing to look for. Go get us a Michael Cooper or Bruce Bowen type.

    Welcome Joakim Noah!

    Noah looks like a solid addition to the Grit 'n Grind Express tribute band.

    JJJ has arrived ahead of schedule

    He has solid strength, especially when he gathers himself. He's better going off two feet -- he's not Air Jordan where he can fly over and dunk on 3 guys taking two quick dribbles off one foot. Although I think JJJ can even improve that with some more core training next summer. He should really concentrate on explosiveness and all-around power. He should give Tim S. Grover (MJ and Kobe's old trainer) a call. I read his 2 books (Relentless was AWESOME!) and think he's a guy who can help the new kids. Luka, too, but I am not so sure that I want to help the competition. Although both guys could be in a small rotation of guys who are the "face of the league" in a few years.

    I posted my last comment right before I saw yours. Maybe we should trade Marshon to a team that is tanking but still needs a guy to put up enough empty stats so the team won't get find. Come to think of it, Marshon Brooks can be that guy EVERY year.

    2nd team: Mack, Dillon, Casspi, Jam, Noah. I would use a 10 man rotation or 9 1/2 with Dillon being the nominal 6th man of the bunch. Although if a big gets 2 quick ones early then Jam gets the early call. Of these guys though, DB is the only one I trust for 20 minutes a night. Jam for 15. Mack 10-15 and that's about it other than spot duty for our MASH Unit. 11th man aka In Case of Emergency Break Glass: Marshon Brooks. If Parsons get some back then Parsons gets this spot and we trade Marshon. Or trade BOTH along with a G League quality guy to some mystery meat 'missing piece' at the deadline. 12th man: Jevon Carter. Defense, toughness, and our default 3rd string pg. 13th man: let Rabb, DJ, Yuta, and Selden battle it out. Energy and hustle is the name of the game here.

    Parsons - Disabled Player Exception or SOMETHING

    Unless we are in the running for Kevin Durant (and, honestly, he would be an awesome fit) then should we ride his contract out? Or trade him next year at the deadline? Don't throw even more bad money and picks and players at this Parsons deal.
