Good ol Rocky Top...

First of all, you know you're tired today when you write this entire post, go to post it, then realize you accidentally posted it to the wrong blog. Yep, I did that today. This post was on my other blog for about 5 seconds today. Maybe I should finish my coffee before posting from now on. Anyway, onto the news.

So if you would have told me in the beginning of the season that at the end of February one of the biggest stories in college basketball would be Pat Summitt dressing up in a cheerleader's outfit at a game, I'd probably say "Gee, must be a tough year for college hoops news."

I know the big topic is Florida getting routed in Tennessee last night. And it should be. That was an ass-kicking of epic proportions. And I know it hasn't exactly been an off year for college hoops news. Heck, the Greg Oden and Kevin Durant debate alone has been enough to fuel some national interest.

But I do think this season is coming into the stretch without a clear cut favorite right now. The past couple of weeks, it seems like a top team keeps getting beat, with the exception being Ohio State on Sunday. Some years, you get one dominant team at the top heading into March. And some years, you get about 8 teams jockeying for position.

And even though Ohio State is currently the consensus #1, raise your hand if you absolutely believe they have the equivalent to a free pass to the Final 4 this year. Anyone? Anyone?

Heck, if they get in a bracket with Kansas, all bets are off right there.

It just proves what I generally think about this time of year. Losses like the one last night that Florida took will make you question their overall ability to turn it on in March. And rightfully so.

But really, with a year like this, does a loss last night in Tennessee really matter much in the end for a team like Florida? I say no. It may ruin their chances at a 1 seed, but they will still get their high seed. And as long as they get a good run in mid-March they're right back in it.

Can they achieve that run? Well, that is now debatable. But can anyone really tell me that they truly know which team will turn it on in the postseason? I don't think so. For all we know, Duke could wake up and start running the table (yeesh).

And for the record, I think all of this is fantastic. I love going into March without a real top team truly dominating. I don't know about you. (Well, unless it's St Joe's going 27-0. I enjoyed that at the time... and look where it got them.)

Couple more things...

- Jeff Garcia's time is done with the Eagles. AJ Feeley got the contract, Jeff didn't. Jeff's insistence that he was going to test free agency is what ultimately did him in. The Eagles don't like getting into bidding wars over 37 year old QB's.

So Tampa Bay or Denver will probably have the lead in the Jeff Garcia race right now from what I hear. And yes, I can't believe I just treated a Jeff Garcia free agency run like it's a big deal. Wouldn't have seen that coming in the beginning of last season either.

I wonder how soon the Jeff Garcia Eagles jerseys will fly off the clearance racks around here. No, I'm not getting one.

- Another thing I'm having trouble believing... that the NHL trading deadline would be more interesting than the NBA trading deadline.

Well, maybe that's not so surprising. It's easier to make big deals in the NHL than the NBA. That's obvious. So having more big players flying around at the deadline isn't too unusual.

Then again, with the way the NHL grabs the national interest nowadays, you could have Wayne Gretzky come out of retirement and get traded to New York, and it probably wouldn't matter much to most sports fans.

That's all I got today. C+ stuff, fo sho!

From H's comment in the last post.

I've seen more than one hot McDonald's worker in my day. McD's I think recruits a little more than a Burger King.

Cause I've seen some ugly women at BK. And they get even uglier at Wendy's. I don't know why that is.

El Padrino said...

tastycakes

El Padrino said...

dammit

H said...

I worked at McD's in High School. There were a few hotties. One smoking hot chick who was like 20 and in college studying CJ to become an FBI agent.

H said...

I was 16 at the time, so that was very exciting.

Ben said...

Yes, I can post today...I'm not guaranteeing a lot because i've been having troubles. After a while blogger just stops for me, i hate it.

The Rev said...

I wasn't doing the cakes thing today.

But I win.

Ben said...

Don't tell me you just mentioned that Kansas could beat somebody in the tourney. Maybe they need to worry about getting out of the 1st round this year.

Mills said...

i did the intial fbi testing. that is some crazy stuff.

The Rev said...

I might do the tastykakes thing one day.

But I might not tell you which day. I might just throw it in the posting one day, and surprise.

ToddPacker said...

nice post, rev... c+ might be a little too high of a mark to give yourself

Ben said...

That's why I like the rev, he lets us west-coasters have a chance.

Ben said...

and, the Oden is back.

The Rev said...

The words "Kansas might beat somebody" never came out of my mouth or in this case from my fingers on the keyboard. I know Kansas has a bad recent history.

But if they are a 2 seed, which it looks like they can be, they have as much a shot of knocking someone off as anyone.

My point was... everyone is vulnerable.

Mills said...

the rev can't buy a bucket. tp just swatted him out into the first row.

Ben said...

Did anyone notice that SG's blog thing yesterday about Oden sounded eerily similar to the conversation we had the day prior.

Hi Bill!

The Rev said...

Can I have a C- at least?

ToddPacker said...

zeke, comparing UM hoops to duke football... wow, i didn't know it was that bad....

ToddPacker said...

how about d+

Ben said...

I hope Kansas loses to Vermont or Winthrop again in the 1st round this year.

Ben said...

Kansas destroyed my bracket the last two years, I will not pick them to get to the sweet 16 on principal alone.

The Rev said...

Yeah, I see how SG is a step behind. Everyone else was talking about Greg Oden on Monday, if not Sunday. He steps up on Tuesday. Way to be with it.

But I'm sure this is a conversation everyone is having.

The Rev said...

D+...

tough room!

Ben said...

Ok, so I saw the Pat Summit thing, it looked to me like there was a camera shot up her skirt. Not that I want to see it, just thought that would be "interesting"

The Rev said...

This is the time of year when I start waking up and getting my college b-ball jones.

temwr said...

I did much FBI testing.

ToddPacker said...

ben, the summit up the skirt shot in hd was frightening

temwr said...

Kansas will win it all, they are due.

whocares said...

I made the same mistake last year Ben. I had Kansas in the final four, and we all know how that turned out. I'm picking them to lose in the first round out of spite.

Ben said...

I had one of those "Female Body Inspector" shirts in college...yeah I was cool.

For my Al Gore peeps...

File this one under “Fucking Hilarious!”

Last August alone, Al Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk to walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

REACT: Of course, it’ll be you and me that will have to register for a $50 “carbon tax sticker” on our Camry’s if Gore has his way. Wake up, people. Wake up.

whocares said...

And I think Playboy already did a "Women of McDonalds" spread. I could be wrong.

I'll advise.

Al Gore should get solar panels and a windmill

H said...

Ahhhhh, the hypocrisy of American politics. God I love this country.

ToddPacker said...

gore needs to drop some lbs.

whocares said...

That's the problem with most Democratic talking heads. They preach about helping the poor and cleaning up the environment. But really, they want US to help the poor and clean up the environment.

H said...

That's what I said WC. I was pretty sure they did one a year or two back. Definitely advise.

Regards

Ben said...

You know what, the gov-a-nator had to give up his Hummer because of his stance on the energy crisis, so Gore should give up his house. Wonder what Tipper would think of that.

What ever happened to the one hot Gore daughter?

Spaceman Spiff said...

four 15's didnt see no wires

boom goes the amplifiers

Ben said...

Playboy did a women of Wal-Mart spread, they had to photoshop in teeth on a couple of the ladies

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

For my Antonella peeps.

Spaceman Spiff said...

all the celebs that support gore are probly doing the same shit too, oh, but they drive a prius!

Sorry, since LOG is gone I dont know how to do the cool link.

NSFW

ToddPacker said...

nice, meiz

Ben said...

Pic 2 is a pretty good on from Meiz too.

The Rev said...

Al Gore, a hypocrite?

He's a politician. Kinda goes with the territory. No surprise.

I bet the Bush family uses a lot of electricity and natural gas too at their many homes and vacation homes. And I bet if you add it up, it comes out to more total usage than Gore's home. Maybe, maybe not. But I'd lay good odds.

Only difference is, the Bush family DGAF about global warming, so they're not hypocrites when they use all that energy.

Isiah Thomas said...

I tried watching An Inconvenient Truth again, fell asleep after another 10 mins.

I see how it won an Oscar and why hollywood loves it. From the first 20 minutes its basically a documentary about Al Gore and how he lost the election.

Ben said...

I'd like fries with that.

H said...

Good work, dub-c. I can't view them here though. Do the women have all their teeth?

Ben said...

Considering that GW is a Texan and an oil man, you know he's burning up some fossil fuels.

whocares said...

"Only difference is, the Bush family DGAF about global warming, so they're not hypocrites when they use all that energy."



Excactly!!!!!!! Bush doesnt try to make the whole country feel guilty about global warming. Gore does. How can you respect that?

The Rev said...

I have yet to see Gore's documentary.

I still say that if he had run his campaign the way he ran that movie, he'd be president. He was so damn stiff in that election.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm waiting to get to the part where he points the finger at Bush as being the root of global warming, I know its coming.

*end political discussion

Isiah Thomas said...

as for Dook Footyball/UM Hoops, maybe that example was a little extreme. Just saying that I keep the expectations real. I keeps it realz yo.

The Rev said...

This statement might get me in trouble...

at least Gore tries to make it an issue. Bush ignores it.

He may be a hypocrite, but he's a hypocrite doing some form of good. Instead of an asshole who has no interest in the subject.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev global warming isn't just a US issue. And it didn't just become a problem in the last 8 years (Bush's presidency)

The Rev said...

And maybe I'm wrong... but I never thought using too much electricity was harmful to the environment. That's more of a renewable resource, am I right?

Natural gas usage, there you might have a case. But getting on Gore for a high electric bill, I don't see the crime there.

But I admit I haven't studied the issue intently. So I might be wrong.

The Rev said...

Zeke...

I never said it was all Bush's fault.

I know it's more than the USA and I know it's more than 8 years.

I just don't think Bush is doing enough about it, except maybe trying to get us to use corn for gas.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm sure Gore would have axed the terrorists to be evironmentally friendly before they blew up our shit.

Come on rev.

El Padrino said...

global warming is not an issue

as Sheffield would say it's a "witch hunt"

El Padrino said...

it's just silly scientists disgruntled with thier own life trying to make a name for themselves

it's all bullshit

Spaceman Spiff said...

at least it wont be an issue for us, we'll be 6 feet deep

Spaceman Spiff said...

anyone seen 'in too deep' with omar epps and ll cool j? cant get enough of that movie

El Padrino said...

and even if the world does warm over and we all die from massive floods from ice caps melting you know what?

we wont be alive to see it

you know why we wont be alive

because humans dont live to see thier 832nd birthday

Spaceman Spiff said...

phoenix with the backdoor blowout to cover, needed it

The Rev said...

You're a master at trying to put words in my mouth Zeke.

Spaceman Spiff said...

it wont affect gore at all, he justs needs something to do since he aint in the oval office

The Rev said...

From a Time magazine article I just caught...

"Kreider said Gore purchases enough energy from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and methane gas to balance 100 percent of his electricity costs.

Gore, who owns homes in Carthage, Tenn., and in the Washington area, has said he leads a "carbon-neutral lifestyle." To balance out other carbon emissions, the Gores invest money in projects to reduce energy consumption, Kreider said. "

I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing. But he does claim to use some solar and alternative energy to balance it out.

Just presenting the other side.

whocares said...

"He may be a hypocrite, but he's a hypocrite doing some form of good. Instead of an asshole who has no interest in the subject."



You're right Rev. Who doesnt want to follow a leader who points out everyone's flaws while making no attempt to correct his own? Those guys are fun to be around.

Isiah Thomas said...

PHX hit the switch towards the end of the 3rd.

Isiah Thomas said...

Who doesnt want to follow a leader who points out everyone's flaws while making no attempt to correct his own?

This is the Democratic Party's motto.

The Rev said...

And the ones making the charges against him are a conservative-funded organization. They have an agenda too.

Jus sayin.

Isiah Thomas said...

rev you don't know by now that one side will have negative articles....the other side positive.

I'm sure this guy is a Gore campaign contributor.

El Padrino said...

too late for me

it's ok, ride them tonight

The Rev said...

Yeah, but the so-called flaws Gore has may not be that big a deal.

But the conservative-funded organization making the charges wants you to believe they are a big deal.

I ain't saying they are right or wrong in the accusations. But they have their agenda just like the liberals do. You have to take that into account.

This whole story may not be that big a deal.

Spaceman Spiff said...

balance it out? shouldnt he be using more renewable energy sources. once he uses shit that emits into the atmosphere, he cant take it back

Isiah Thomas said...

Gore just needs to crawl back under his rock....or put the dick back in his mouth.

whocares said...

I agree Rev. There are two sides to every story.

But if you're going to haul your ass to the Oscars to get on your soapbox and preach at me about global warming, you better damn well have ridden eco-friendly bicycle there.

Spaceman Spiff said...

hey guys, i killed a couple babies, but dont worry, i impregnated enough girls to balance it out

Mills said...

Gore can afford to do stuff like that. If we were all loaded as well, we could do the same things. The problem is, average joe blow can't do what is al is doing cuz he doesn't have the means to do so.

though i do think we need to look into the giant windmill thing more. those things dominate.

Isiah Thomas said...

maybe that's what John Brown was rapping about last night, re: Car Wars.

again, its the Circle of LOV

Isiah Thomas said...

*rapping about on Monday

The Rev said...

I'm the first one to admit... the whole Oscars soapbox thing kinda turned me off.

I know a lot of those Hollywood types are Limousine Liberals.

The Rev said...

"hey guys, i killed a couple babies, but dont worry, i impregnated enough girls to balance it out"

OK, that was funny.

A little harsh, but funny.

whocares said...

"balance it out? shouldnt he be using more renewable energy sources. once he uses shit that emits into the atmosphere, he cant take it back."


Good point.

Isiah Thomas said...

one thing I vote for if we go all "green" is feminine hygien. Earthy bitches are always dirty, and no one likes a dirty bitch.

The Rev said...

Krieder is Gore's spokesperson, so their side may be a total spin. I agree.

But the other side needed to be presented at least.

The Rev said...

Then maybe we need a subsidy for environmentally friendly soap for women.

I'm talking biodegradable-type stuff to clean the hooch.

Isiah Thomas said...

One thing that's surprised me about PHX, seeing as that it is balls as hot most of the year (i.e. the sun is always shining) - I haven't seen any solar panels on rooves (roofis, roofs,whatever).

Isiah Thomas said...

environmentally friendly douche, either that go out rob and big style and hold em down and turn a hose on em.

The Rev said...

I admit... I don't exactly recycle. And I probably use as much gasoline as the average American. So I'm not exactly green.

But I did go to an Earth Day concert in Boston once where Boz Scaggs headlined in 97. So that has to count for something.

Mills said...

clemens to the cardinals? probably not, but his agent did meet with walter and co yesterday. nothing will happen, but interesting meeting i suppose.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I currently hold the title of Instigator of the day.

hooray Meiz!

The Rev said...

I say we do like they did to Sam Jackson and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction.

Strip em down in the yard, hand em a bar of soap, and then hit em with the hose.

The Rev said...

Roger Clemens is a ho, fo sho!

Ben said...

A friend of mine put in solar panels on his house, because the sun is always shining in CO. He got Xcel energy to pay for about 80% of it, and got a tax break on the other. It was about a total of 50K, he paid just under 10. He doesn't have an energy bill, ever, and some months actually gets a refund check because he's producing more energy then he's using.

ToddPacker said...

"it's just silly scientists disgruntled with thier own life trying to make a name for themselves"


that's funny ep... you could just as easily replace the word scientists with politicians

ToddPacker said...

son of a bitch.... i just noticed the title of rev's post today...

The Rev said...

One hour and 13 minutes later... TP realizes I picked the title today based on his comment in the last post.

If you had 1:13 in the pool, you just won.

El Padrino said...

true

everyone in life wants to have thier own life mean something

cept me
i'm happy being a malcontent wiseguy that is all city in wiffle ball, beer pong and street fighter II

Isiah Thomas said...

Jayson Stark said if Clemens signs with another NL team besides the Stros he will lose his 10 year "personal services" contract he has in place. He said 100% chance he doesn't sign with STL or any other NL team. I'm sure Roger is just trying to drive up his price.

And well done Meiz.

ToddPacker said...

"One hour and 13 minutes later... TP realizes I picked the title today based on his comment in the last post.

If you had 1:13 in the pool, you just won"


i guess i shouldn't have admitted that, rev... tps got me rattled today...

El Padrino said...

Aniston bikini shots

Mills said...

I am CALLING A SHOT:

Unknown Drake University, despite a history that includes a Final Four appearance, and tough loss against John Wooden's great UCLA teams will win 4 straight games in the Missouri Valley Tournament and gain its first entry to the NCAA Tourney since 1971.

Dr. Tom Davis will be a feel good story for the following week (ala Lefty Dresell (sp?)) and the Bulldogs will lose first round as a 15 seed.

ToddPacker said...

mutombo'd

Mills said...

Aniston stays in shape during the off-season, it contributes to her on-going in-season success.

ToddPacker said...

drake university, that reminds me of the fact that drakes cakes are better that tastykakes.... that was for the title, rev

The Rev said...

That's it, TP.

If I do the first commenter gets a box of cakes thing one day, you're disqualified.

The Rev said...

On a lighter note...

Mitchell and Ness has finally shipped my Vince Papale jersey. Hopefully I'll have it soon.

Oh boy, oh boy!

ToddPacker said...

tastykakes is a sore spot with rev...

if i win i'll donated them to charity

Mills said...

rev -- this has to stop. no more jerseys. you are big boy now with big boy wedding to plan and big boy house to pay for.

Ben said...

who is that with aniston in her bikini, it looks like one of the baldwins

Ben said...

I'm waiting to get my Jeff Garcia broncos jersey.

temwr said...

temwr said...

Garcia to the Bucs? I fucking hope not. I want Chris (I'm really Gary Busey's son) Simms.

Or Bruce KellyKapowski.

temwr said...

i think today's SG will be his article that I read two weeks ago in the Magazine about him being an announcer.

Short diary:

He thinks it ain't that hard.

That's all you get unless the topic is something new.

temwr said...

Exxon (XOM) up $1.23
Coca-Cola (KO) up $0.28
Altria (MO) up $1.43
Procter Gamble (PG) up $2.21
Goldman Sachs (GS) up $2.35
Target Inc. (TGT) up $1.69

temwr said...

Girl Scout cookies just came in today. Or at least just got to me. I will be eating an entire box of Tagalongs today.

temwr said...

I might have went platinum or diamond or something.

Ben said...

my company's stock dropped $4 yesterday...ouch. Just means i'll be able to buy more shares when the employee stock purchase is executed.

Ben said...

We got GS cookies last week, i think. Then I gave up chocolate for lent, so those damn thin mints have been staring at me for a week now.

Ben said...

That's a pretty good z for middle of the day

temwr said...

I don't do the lent thing.

I hope that doesn't piss God off too much.

Ben said...

I do the lent thing out of respect for my wife, she's catholic. That is also why I go to church, except on ski days or if there's a really good football game on.

Ben said...

gotta have priorities

temwr said...

Baptised, but never confirmed, so I think all of my sins are still my parents responsibility. Maybe not though, I'm not sure how the rules on that work.

tidal wave of tps has toppled El Pad's ship

pregnant lady came into my office to talk for like 10 minutes. It's her last day before she leaves for Maternity. Now there are like 15 old ladies all standing around outside my office talking about babies.

EA was at the Mich/MSU game.

Ben said...

There was a guy on American Idol that went all beatbox in the middle of his song. It was awesome.

temwr said...

tell them that spiff kills babies, but not to worry he knocks up enough girls to balance it out.

Ben said...

UM/MSU was not for my viewing pleasure.

temwr said...

Wait. Hair Stylist? Steve please advise.

temwr said...

Is that more reality show stuff that I am supposed to bone up on?

Ben said...

I think the killing/knocking up would be a good criminal defense.

If the glove doesn't fit, babies are made, you must acquit.

Steve said...

ben

I HATE that, when people stand right outside your door and chat about stupid shit. It would different if it was a bunch of sorority girls talking about experimenting, but no it's usually, stupid people talking about their kids soccer game.

I should be put a "No Soliciting" sign outside my door.

Ben said...

Tem-
Most men call them barber's not Hair Stylists. Steve did you get waxed whilst you were there too?

Ben said...

At my old office i sat right by the printer. The printer is the worst thing ever to sit by.

Steve said...

LOL, good catch Tem. Not sure what she's called. It's the chick at Sports Clips, she's not a barber...

So whatever she it.

Ben said...

Oh yeah...

Shawn Marion is gay

Ben said...

There was a dude on American Idol that's name is Sundance Head. I thought maybe that was H. He's a bigger dude.

Ben said...

I'd probably go by H if my first name was Sundance

Ben said...

cmfast's link was weak...be advised don't visit.

The headline is women with tops on but nothing on the bottom. Not worth the effort.

Steve said...

cumfast is a tricky lass. He swishes in, post an unsafe link, and swishes out. He has some great scheme, to get us all fired.

It's like a 3rd Grader with down syndrome trying to out smart you.

Ben said...

and that's a Z

Ben said...

I thought about linking porn on his blog, but then he'd think he was cool because people read his blog.

temwr said...

If I got fired I would have far far more time to devote to ruining the DS blog and pretty much anything else I wanted to destroy.

It is not in cummy's best interest to get me fired.

Mills said...

here is a good discussion point (via si.com).

what pg would you rather have - chris paul or deron williams? (selected 4th and 3rd respectively 2 years ago)

Ben said...

If i got fired for having NSFW stuff on my computer I would file for discrimination. It's a disability and should not be held against a person.

Ben said...

I would rather have steve nash

Ben said...

I'd rather have CP3, name a good player on his team.

Deron is good, but look at who he has to pass to.

Steve said...

chris paul, hand's down.


He's another one, and probaly stupid cause there is no way to answer it but.

Paul in 10 years, or Nash today?

Ben said...

Plus, just look at what CP3 has done for the good folks of OKC, got them so fired up for basketball that they went out and bought their own team.

Mills said...

i can name players off the hornets roster, but that is cuz they are my team

temwr said...

steve nash.

temwr said...

damn ben beat me to that.

fine I will go with Williams, just because all you other folks went with Paul.

The Williams guy is awesome.

Mills said...

nash today is the most exciting offensive player i can remember seeing. some of the stuff he does is redonkulous. i am going with nash actually.

cp3 could pull a penny and never amount to much.

El Padrino said...

pual q #1

nash Q #2

temwr said...

And Nash today over Paul in 10 years.

I always like to go with the known commodity over the unknown future one.

Mills said...

"got them so fired up for basketball that they went out and bought their own team."


Please advise.

Steve said...

Nash in 98 (when he was CP age and playing about the same minutes): 3.4 assist, 9.1 points

Paul: 8.6 Assist, 17.3 points

Nash is great, but he does have a lot of weapons to work with too. He'd make any team better, but without the athlete's he'd be no better then he is on the Canadian Olympic team.

Mills-
the guys who bought the Sonics live in OKC, and more then likely will be moving the team there.

Mills said...

steve -- that is illogical logic. i don't think anybody expects paul to improve as dramatically as nash has. paul will NOT average 37 pts and 18 assists a game. that is a ledge i am willing to step out on.


penny hardway had great numbers his first couple of years. and he fell off. he wasn't the first, won't be the last. it happens. 10 years is a long time. 5 years is a long time.

stephon marbury and stevie francis were considered franchise guys just 3 years ago.

Mills said...

ben --

i hear that sonics talk, but i am not sure that move is going to happen. we'll see, but it isn't even a more likely than not thing at this point.

Mills said...

nash turned Q-Rich, Boris Diaw, Tim Thoms, and even Raja Bell into solid contributers.

Dude makes everybody better on the offensive end.

Mills said...

so really nobody backs williams even though he averages more assists. i thought it would be closer to 60-40 paul. tems vote for the oppostie doesn't really count.

Ben said...

They aren't staying in Seattle. My seattle peeps all agree that the new owners are only trying to negotiate a new arena deal to keep fan interest in the current team. They will never get a new arena up there.

Mills said...

loooooonnnnnnng typing Z. that has to be a solid Z re: words per post.

Ben said...

If Nash is so great, why doesn't team Canada do well. There are limits. I think he's perfect for the system that he's in, and yes he does make players better, but it's still about having the right system in place.

Look at Dirk, he got better once Stevie left

solid z.

and a natural z, those are hard to come by.

temwr said...

my vote does too count.

Williams is a beast. and like you said averages more assists.

Feel free to support my point further.

Ben said...

what's a natural z?

temwr said...

does team canada even have 3 people that I have heard of?

temwr said...

a natural z is 4 in a row all 1 minute apart.

so their timestamps would read something like:

1:47
1:48
1:49
1:50

it is far harder to pull of than it sounds.
