RePoRt CaRd

Lemme break this shiat down....This might be as long as Tyler's NBA preview, so hold on.
This is only factoring first round picks.....

Po'Land (A) - What could you say? They couldn't have done wrong with either pick. This wasn't Reggie Bush/Mario Willams. These two guys are stars. Superstars. Greg Oden is not Sam Bowie. Dizude can ball and even though he never made me go wow (cept for the Gtown game) I think he's going to be a great NBA center.
UPDATE: They acquired severeal other first round picks, Rudy Fernandez and the Finland PG. What a day for them, standing fucking O.

Seattle (A) - Again, Durant = Superstar. Now the fact that they bamboozled the Celts is what gives them the A grade. Well fucking done. Jeff Green is a stud too. I would think they are going to deal one of thier 3 PG's so another deal is imminent. I wonder if Rashard Lewis is staying? If not they will be real young but real talented.

Hawks (B+) - Al Horford (did Stern have to say from the Domincan Republic?) is a beast. Outright. Eat's rebounds, blocks shots and can handle the rock. Now ATL has some balls in the paint and with pick #11 they grab a fearless PG who loves the last 2 minutes of a game. I can't believe I'm saying this but the Hawks really improved tonight.

Grizz (C) - I think Conley is a stretch at #4 overall but they need a PG real bad. I hope he shoots 1000 shots a day til training camp cuz he doesn't have much of a jumper to speak of. He can penetrate a defense though. I mean with Stromile/Gasol/Warrick/Gay and either Miller or Lowry they got something cooking. If Gasol stays.

Boston (F) - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA. Right after this trade went down SG bound and killed his wife, pumped Dooze full of roids, suffocated him, placed a copy of "Now I Can Die In Peace" by the two of them and hung himself with his Basketball Jesus throwback jersey. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA.

Bucks (D) - Someone had to take the gook. Question is, can they afford to bide 2-3 years for this guy to develop? They weren't very good last year and they really didn't improve much roster wise. Andy Katz is saying he doesn't even want to report to Milwaukee. That hurts. The nucleus of Bogut/Redd/Villanueva is going to be solid but they need more. Is this guy the next Yao Ming? The Szechun Dirk? Jury, out.

T-Wizzles (C+) - Brewer can defend, run and score. Good player. I like his game. But with Garnett being traded (most likely) they should have went with Brendan Wright.

Bobcats (D) - They grab Wright who I just mentioned, so that's three Tarheels, 2 on the front court (May & Wright) and then down at 22 they scoop Dudley. Jarod is going to be Shane Battier but without the head stretch marks that give me nightmares.
UPDATE: They trade Wright to Golden State.......for Jason Richardson. Not a good move. Never trade a young big for a streaky guard.

Chicago (C) - Eh, Noah can play D and rebound. But that's what they are paying Ben Wallace for. I know it didn't quite work out for Ben dub but Noah is kind of the same player. I thought Julian Wright was the pick here. I guess they figure Noah fits Skiles system.

Sacratomatoe (F) - Losers. Spencer Hawes is the token white stiff. They couldn't wait til round 2 and grab Aaron Gray? Take Julian here and a white stiff later. This was a disaster pick for them.

Philly (B) - They need a bunch of help. Anybody they grabbed was good enough for me. They have three picks in the first round. Thaddeus is very athletic and works hard. Cook they flipped for a 7 footer and then drafted a international star from Finland. I'll roll with that.
UPDATE: They trade the Finland kid to Portland,

New O'leanz (B) - Julian fell to them. Listen when he announced most analysts had him top 5. He dropped and Bryon Scott reaps the rewards. The guy is a solid player. This team is taking a nice shape. Good bigs, a couple of shooters and young.

Clips (B) - Thorton can ball. Dunleavey will need some patience though. The knock on this kid is that he is a bit dumb.

Deeeeetroit (B) - They loved Stuckey, they got Stuckey. I heard "dwayne wade" like. I really dunno, not gonna pretend I do so they get a standard B. I hated the Afflalo pick though. He's soft.

Wiz (A) - They needed scoring help. They drafted scoring help. Young is a nice little player. And they scored some value here. Young could have gone higher.

Brick City (B-) - Sean Marshall is a risky pick. Sort of a nut but shit, he can block a shot and defend the low block. They needed some toughness so I can't kill them here.

Golden State (B) - No clue. They say he's a good shooter but he had his worse year and may not report this year. As the case with every Intl player. I would have thought they would go with Jason Smith who ended up in Philly but they wanted a shooter.
UPDATE: I had them at a D until they stole Brendan Wright for Richardson. Well done.

Lake show (F) - Another PG. I thought they run the triangle. Isn't the PG useless in the triangle? Smush? Farmer? Now first round, gteed $$$ to another PG? Silly.....

Miami (A) - Flipped Jason Smith to Philly for a shooter in Cook. I like this. Any way to spread the floor for Wade and Shaq is a good thing.

Knickerbockers (A) - Legitimate front court. Legitimate. Randolph flanking Curry with Lee looking for clean up dunks and rebounds. Oh shit I'm officially stoked. Who cares if they took Wilson Chandler who is Renaldo Balkman but a better scorer.

Suns (C-) - Looking to tap into that international talent again. Diaw, Captain! and now Fernandez. Alando Tucker, eh. He's a nice guy. Mike D'Antoni said they think they can turn him into a shooter. We'll see.
UPDATE: They traded their pick, again. To Portland who jesus did they clean up or what.


Utah (B) - Best shooter in drafr according to many scouts. So that works because wathcing Okur throw 30 footers in the air was not fun. Solid pick.

Houston (F) - Terrible pick. Brooks is narely 6 foot, not NBA ready and with a roster that already has Luther Head/Mike James/and Alston. Van Gundy is laughing his ass off. What was wrong with Big Baby here? Or Tiago Splitter?

Spurz (B) - Getting Splitter with the 28th pick is value. The guy was a legitimate prospect two years now.

Notes:

2nd round picks I liked/disliked:
Suns getting DJ Strawberry ? Confusing, another non shooter.
Mavs getting Fazekas is nice
Portland in the 2nd round grabbing Green and Nichols out of Syracuse....I mean they had a fucking day.
The Knick pick was confusing but how could you kill them? Zeke stole a 25 yeard old bulldog and if anyone can relate or control him it may just be Thomas.
Lakers drafting last night reminded me of Ray Charles driving on the Autobahn. Just scary.

I could go on and on, this was a great draft. I'll end here so we can comment up.

Ball of fresh mozz

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Again, I did the NBA preview.

El Padrino said...

you did but didnt tyler do one?

El Padrino said...

irregardless good job

El Padrino said...

shout out to beisbol

Biggio = 30000
Thomas = 500

well done sirs.

tem said...

Hey, it's friday.

TGIF.

tem said...

and it is half day friday.

ToddPacker said...

3000 & 500 are big numbers

ToddPacker said...

all 5 starters going in the nba draft.... i guess that's pretty good

ToddPacker said...

joke's suit was great

tem said...

that suit was dumb.

ToddPacker said...

"and it is half day friday"

i'm jealous, tem

tem said...

now i must go do work because even though its friday and a half day I gots shit to do.

ToddPacker said...

"that suit was dumb"


at least is wasn't a man-dress

tem said...

i guess i will give him points for not wearing a dress.

tem said...

Where's kermit?

ToddPacker said...

big series starts this afternoon for the mets and phils

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

And the Hurt got tossed.

Memorable day for the Thomas family.

ToddPacker said...

i saw that meiz.... it's funny that he got tossed on the day he hit 500

blue said...

i'm going to respectfully disagree with EP and screamin A about the jason richardson trade.

Charlotte gets a guy who can average 22-23 pts/game easy...GS gets a guy who is maybe going to be good, maybe. Charlotte doesn't need anymore kids, they need veteran scoring

ToddPacker said...

gonna hit the tps hard this am... so i can costanza time the afternoon

ToddPacker said...

it was good to see d lee representin last night

El Padrino said...

blue it stunts the growth of Gerald Wallace and i just think Richardson is not worth top ten talent, i would have like it if they traded a later pick

El Padrino said...

big series tp, big
big time road trip, not a day off til the break

El Padrino said...

seersucker with a bow tie

i was like whoa

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I had something to say. I forgot.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem, are you aware of Chad Qualls' infinity ERA & WHIP from last night?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I haven't been here this early in ages.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

How does Yahoo even calculate that. I think you should automatically lose ERA & WHIP, right? How do you figure an average with infinity involved?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

That's a natty with a piss break in between. I'll take it.

jugdish said...

Good job on Biggio getting 3000 last night, but damn! He never hits that much in one game...he had like 5 hits last night. I had tickets for all three games this weekend to try and catch his 3000th hit. Oh well!

El Padrino said...

hall of famer.....?

i say yes

tem said...

yahoo adds up all your pitchers innings and hits and ER and walks to figure out WHIP and ERA.

His infinity ERA hurts, but it doesn't turn out to be a huge portion of my ERA or WHIP because my starting pitching pitches a lot of innings.

I am just excited that Biggios 5 for 6 and LaRoche's 4 for 5 and Mike Jacobs 3 for 4 took my team AVG up over 200.

eft

jugdish said...

I agree...he has had a hell of a career. Only 27 players to do that, you've got to give it to him.

tem said...

biggio and thomas yes to the HOF.

jugdish said...

Biggio is one of only 9 players to get 3000 hits with one club. A rarity now a days. It may not be points for the HOF, but cool irregardless.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tem, that made no sense. I know how to figure out WHIP & ERA.

How do you do it with infinity?

whocares said...

Why does ESPN feel the need to interview the big Chinaman after he gets drafted. Everyone knows he can barely speaka da engrish, so just leave it be.


Stu Scott (talking slowly): "Are. you. ready. for. the. NBA?"

Yi: "Yais. I play basikbol in internasssenal and feel I play good."

SS: "What. do. you. like. about. America?"

Yi: "I live LA. I like (long pause).....Raiders.

whocares said...

Meiz,

I would imagine they put some type of maximum number a pitcher can have so that it can be calculated...

whocares said...

Agreed on the Thomas and Biggio to the HOF.


I liked how Thomas said he got to 500 "the right way". What do you mean, Frank? Who you talking about?

tem said...

if CC pitches a 9 inning perfect game for me and qualls pitches to 1 batter and gives up a HR then:

CC has a 0 ERA and 0 WHIP

Qualls has a Inf ERA and Inf WHIP

together yahoo will say i have 9 innings pitched with 1 hit and 1 ER.

my team with have a 1.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. the team has 9 innings pitched and has given up 1 hit and 1 run.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

infinity should be infinity. Until it happens to me.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

So, having the worst possible outing doesn't hurt?

Dog shit.

tem said...

no the worst possible outing doesn't hurt me too much.

of course qualls does that a lot to me. for every hold he gets me he throws out an infinity era.

tem said...

in any case though, you are handing it to me this week.

mlmc is heading towards the basement.

ToddPacker said...

all of your pitching stats goes into 1 calculation.... total runs and total innings pitched to calculate 1 team era.... they don't average one guys inf. era with another guys 1.50 era

whocares said...

RE: Tem's ERA and WHIP scoring.





That's bullshit.

ToddPacker said...

"biggio and thomas yes to the HOF"


i agree

ToddPacker said...

tem is right

ToddPacker said...

about the era and whip

El Padrino said...

al qaeda is at it again in london

fuckers

whocares said...

RE: Tem's ERA and WHIP scoring.



Nevermind. I see how it works now. I take back my bullshit comment.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Al-Qaeda scores ERA & WHIP for Yahoo.

ToddPacker said...

i got a new cell phone last night.... it sucks.... and my old phone won't even turn on so i have to re-type all of my contacts

El Padrino said...

deke not for nothing but the bucks really fucked up last night

whocares said...

They should be able to replace the sim-card. Unless you have the Tem '97 model.

El Padrino said...

Probably the worst writer in SI history, this guy has no clue what he's talking about

El Padrino said...

except for two items

El Padrino said...

i phone today

ToddPacker said...

no sim card...it's a low end LG model... and since i dropped the phone into a 20 oz beer at the d-rays game saturday my old phone won't even turn on.... they tried some bs recovery thing at the alltel store, but the weren't able recover anything

whocares said...

I need some guidance from LOV. And I apologize if this turns out to be very long. But let me know if I'm off base here:



A buddy of mine is getting married in Texas in a few months. He's from Alabama so all of his groomsmen are from here, and still live in this general area. That means we are all having to pony up for plane tickets to his wedding. No big deal. That I was expecting. So he tells me a few months ago that the hotel rooms are taken care of, and we wont have to pay for them. Now, he sends us an e-mail the other day saying that they ARENT paying for the hotel anymore and we would be responsible for that as well. I'm pretty fucking pissed at this point cause it's costing me about a grand to get to this fuckers wedding. Do I have a right to tell this dude how pissed I am or should I just suck it up and go, which is more than likely what will happen.



Thanks LOV,

Bummed in Birmingham

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"deke not for nothing but the bucks really fucked up last night"

Really? I hadn't noticed.

El Padrino said...

and Mess in the NHL hall

what a great sports day today
i'm giddy

El Padrino said...

WC

I have to think if it was up to him he would sport the hotel room. But it's not. It's the she-devils fault. So I wouldnt mention it cuz he's probably embarrassed and pissed off that she ordered him not to sport the rooms.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'd tell him I'm not coming.

But, my friends know I'm a jackass and would accommodate me.

I'm the best man in a wedding in Sept '08. Not sure how I'm gonna deal with the cost of that. I'm gonna be broke.

tem said...

agreed with elpad.

ToddPacker said...

that sucks, wc.... i got a similar sitch coming next summer... my brother is getting married in vegas... at the wynn... at 1st he said he was going to pop for the rooms, but has since backed out... not quite as bad as your problem because i still have over a year until his weddding, but i feel your pain

tem said...

if it is sept 08 you can start walking to it now and probably get there in time.

ToddPacker said...

"and Mess in the NHL hall "


i hate mess

tem said...

take a laptop and get some sort of verizon wireless internet deal so you can LOV while you walk.

El Padrino said...

My situation was similar, i ended getting married in new jersey far from the city so we booked abotu 40 rooms (a block or 2). We struck a deal that they would pay a certain rate($99)so that helped. But i did pay for the bridal party rooms so that eased thier pain.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I also have a friend who plans on getting married in Jamaica pretty soon. I'm sure that'll be cheap. (s)

I'll just take a rowboat from Miami.

ToddPacker said...

"take a laptop and get some sort of verizon wireless internet deal so you can LOV while you walk"



hahahahhahahahhahaa

El Padrino said...

you hate mess and i hate the islanders

fair.

isiah thomas said...

WOO WOO

THIS IS NOT A GAME PEOPLE.

El Padrino said...

but deke if it's a all inclusive jammy your straight, you'll beat them for money for sho just on the liqour

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"if it is sept 08 you can start walking to it now and probably get there in time."

It's a local wedding, dick.

Dude's gonna expect some crazy ass bachelor party. Along with other costs.

El Padrino said...

thanks zeke for grabbing Randolph, think you can control him?

ToddPacker said...

"fair"


yeah, i guess... i hate mess from his oilers days too... they knocked off the islanders in '84

isiah thomas said...

how queer is it to get thrown out at 2nd on your 3000th hit and get thrown out the game after you hit your 5 hunnith's HR?

LaMeSt.MiLeStOnEs.EvAr!!!!1111!!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"but deke if it's a all inclusive jammy your straight, you'll beat them for money for sho just on the liqour"

That would be ideal.

El Padrino said...

greta player tho

El Padrino said...

every isalnd i've gone to i've done the all inclusive (cept Aruba, that was partially all inclusive) and I came home thinking I got the better end of the deal

blue said...

re: infinity ERA/WHIP

this happens because the pitcher doesn't retire a batter. so essentially he pitched 0 innings and the calculation to produce the ERA for that day is impossible.

if you give up 1 run in 0 innings of work, how many do you give up in 9 innings, "infinity"

tem said...

lol thanks blue.

blue said...

all inclusive is the way to go unless you plan on venturing out of the resort a ton for dinner/partying/whatever.

Just about everyplace in Jamaica is all inclusive...plus you don't really want to venture out into the cities anyway...seriously.


Are your friends getting married at Hedonism, cuz that would be awesome

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Go look at Shammy's tagline under his name at the top of the page.

El Padrino said...

serious the draft was awesome

blue said...

at least DS doesn't hide the fact that he's bandwagon like some people

blue said...

spike lee calling the shot on the knicks pick was funny

iamundeniable said...

should i care to read up? the niba lost me with all the trades.

El Padrino said...

and can anyone answer me to why Al Horford was announced from the Domican Republic?

Is this new? I wish an African was drafted so Stern can say "from parts unknown"

isiah thomas said...

I mentioned this last night....

Has Corey Brewer hit puberty?

Dood's voice is mad high.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"Are your friends getting married at Hedonism, cuz that would be awesome"

Us Wisconsin folks aren't exactly all the most "fit". Naamean?

isiah thomas said...

the Suns bet keep the team in-tact after selling ANOTHER fucking 1st rounder....wth.

whocares said...

"this happens because the pitcher doesn't retire a batter. so essentially he pitched 0 innings and the calculation to produce the ERA for that day is impossible."




Was there supposed to be an S after this? I hope so, or are you taking over for cpt. obvious?

blue said...

hey, not everybody here is a math wizard

blue said...

Horford has always been from the DR, big daddy tito moved them down there

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I thought about commenting at Shammy's just to make 'em nervous.

blue said...

Jay Bilas cracks me up

"josh mcroberts will be able to play alongside Greg Oden, he's a great complimentary player"

mcroberts isn't making that team unless they make some more trades, he's behind Oden, Aldridge, Pryzbilla, Frye, LaFrentz, and maybe even Luke Schenser

whocares said...

And thanks for the direction LOV.

I think I'm going to stick to my original plan of begrudgingly paying for everything, but continue to make snide comments to him (and anyone who will listen) about the whole situation.

El Padrino said...

Duke Vitale was on epsn this am saying some shit about McRoberts and how great of a 2nd round pick this is, last nught i said it would be Oden's dunk bitch.

just reiterating

blue said...

if you look at portland's roster on ESPN.com right now, even though the traded players haven't been swapped out, they have 21 players, will have 20 after the trade

blue said...

McRoberts=NBDL at least for a year

whocares said...

Oden's nuts need somewhere to train during the off-season.

Josh, you and you're forehead get loosened up for practice!!

El Padrino said...

And keep your moth close for crissakes!

El Padrino said...

*mouth

Corbin said...

Meiz...i'm involved with a "friends wedding in jamaica" as well (actually that's where i'll be when the yahoo LOV league is drafted)...we're staying for 6 nights, all inclusive...and with airfare it was $1200...

Better get out the piggy bank

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Okay, ElP. How did you manage to fleece the Mantoothz like that?

El Padrino said...

$1200 for all-inclusive is cheap
where you staying Club Dread?

and i didnt fleece anyone

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

1200 for 1 or 2 people?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

yes you did.

jugdish said...

If you don't drink $1200 worth of booze in 6 nights there is something wrong with you. That is cheap for 6 nights all inclusive.

Corbin said...

Sandals for 3 nights, Rui for 3 nights...(the wedding party is only staying at sandals for 3 nights, so we figured why not check out a few different hotels/areas).

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

okay, maybe not

whocares said...

Yeah, $1200 is a fucking steal.

I'm looking at just under a grand for a weekend in Houston.

Corbin said...

1 person...

and i don't see it as a problem drinking 1200 of booze...believe you me i will be be blacking out hard the entire time i'm there

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Sandals! I was going to mockingly guess Sandals.

blue said...

$1200 with airfare to jamaica is a very good deal

whocares said...

Sandals is like the Wal-Mart of vacation destinations.

Corbin said...

ELP, i don't see that as a fleecing...it basically comes down to Vlad for Morneau as the others wont vastly improve either club (especially if Owings is getting shifted to the pen...he threw out of relief last night, but may have just been in game getting his side session work so they didn't tax BP)

blue said...

damn WC where are you staying in Houston Minute Maid Park? The astrodome?

jugdish said...

Isn't airfare to Jamaica normally close to a grand anyways?

Corbin said...

This guy didn't set it up...GF did...I just plan on showing up at airport, blacking out, and coming back

whocares said...

The wife and I did the all inclusive honeymoon to Playa del Carmen in Me-he-ko. And that was almost 5 jeez.

jugdish said...

I have actually heard good things about Sandals.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Oh, hell no. I'm not paying $1200 for some leisure bullshit.

blue said...

sandals=no kids

blue said...

no kids=good times

Corbin said...

391 plus taxes is what we got...so just over like 475 for airfare

whocares said...

Not staying at minute maid. The fucking flight alone was $600 (for 2).

Tack on two nights of a hotel at $150 per night and you get to a grand pretty quickly...

blue said...

so i take it buy drafting Jeff Green the sonics are either saying they don't want Rashard Lewis back, or they're saying that they want to play Rashard at 4 Green at 3 and Durant at 2, and just run and gun

whocares said...

Not to mention this guys cunt of a fiance wants everyone to wear suits instead of renting tuxes.



I already told him seriously that if we had to buy anything else I was out.

El Padrino said...

Sandals is phenominal
the walmart comparasion is silly

i did sandals for $5000 for honeymoon in jamaica and it was a paradise, Whitehouse....

blue said...

ah, good point WC

Flying is expensive, tix to b'ham if I didn't use miles, would have been 500/person

El Padrino said...

They want to sign Rashard, there's enough, Green is not exatcly 30+ minutes ready anyway.

blue said...

you can rent a suit from Mens Wearhouse, that is not a tux.

whocares said...

And by anything else I meant, I aint buying no suit. I told him this guy is showing up in a rental tux one way or the other.

He better pick one out for me or I'll show up in the powder blue Loyd Christmas Special if he aint careful.

El Padrino said...

man, WC your boy must be chained to a radiator or something

this one sounds brutal

jugdish said...

The wedding is in Houston WC?

blue said...

at least Houston is a gorgeous city








(S)

whocares said...

"you can rent a suit from Mens Wearhouse, that is not a tux."




She wants us all to buy/rent like nice ass suits. Like fucking Polo suits.

blue said...

fuck ralph lauren

whocares said...

Sorry, not Houston. He lives in Houston but the wedding is in Austin.

El Padrino said...

Austin is cool, i heard.
anyway is she on that Bridezillas show?

blue said...

show her this suit

it's ralph lauren

blue said...

I have friends who live in Austin..he's like 6'5, he could probably loan you a suit.

El Padrino said...

wear the Joke Noah suit

El Padrino said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
whocares said...

Nah, she's not that bad, but when it comes to the wedding it seems like she might be.

I mean, I dont mind paying for my own flight, and the suit thing was sort of kicked around but I think he put the kibash on that. But the hotel thing just really grinds my gears.

blue said...

doesn't get any better than a baby blue seer sucker

El Padrino said...

"Us Wisconsin folks aren't exactly all the most "fit". Naamean? "

let the record show that this is hilarious

El Padrino said...

the power of pussy

a necessary evil

whocares said...

Blue,


I actually own a suit like that. Seersucker suits get the ladies wet.


I havent worn it in about three years though.

jugdish said...

WC...are you mad because he originally said they would pay for the hotel, then they changed it...or do you think they should pick up the tab on the hotel irregardless?

blue said...

I own one suit..i bought it right out of college to wear to interviews...i've worn in 3 times in my life

blue said...

SG's draft diary is up

Corbin said...

ELP, you're going to be sorry you went after Vlad instead of Wright

El Padrino said...

i have 9 or 10 suits
im not braggin, it's my profession

El Padrino said...

Vlad dwarfs Wright's power numbers Corb, what are you talking about?

injury?

blue said...

my boss wears a suit everyday...he's the only one in the entire building most days...screw that

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

If/when I get married. It's a fuckin' cookout. Shorts & T-shirts and Rev DJing.

Corbin said...

"i have 9 or 10 suits
im not braggin, it's my profession "

So you're a suit maker?

(S)

El Padrino said...

Can i come?

Corbin said...

Injury, mixed in with the overall numbers Wright will put up in all 6 offensive categories...

And you're already rooting for the mets to excel, now you have to root for them AND vlad...a lot of work

whocares said...

A little bit of both jug.

I mean, if you ask people to fly halfway across the country to be in your wedding the least you could do it pay for the hotels. I paid for the groomsmen in my wedding, and most of them lived within driving distance.

But yeah, it really gets me even worse that he said they were going to do it, and then backed out on it.

blue said...

brats and stadium sauce at deke's wedding, keg stands...sounds like a good time

El Padrino said...

backin out stings the nostrils

blue said...

we stayed at a house on the beach in gulf shores for the last wedding, it wasn't cheap, i thought they were picking up the whole tab too, and they were until she needed some special fish or something for the centerpieces

jugdish said...

I can see that. I don't think I could have afforded to pay for hotels for my groomsman. but then again only one guy came from out of town and I let him and his wife stay at my house.

What is etiquette on that?

El Padrino said...

i'm pretty sure Vlad walks more than Wright, hits for a better avg., will end up with more HR's and RBI's so it's just steals I left on the table Corb.

but i have reyes and pods for that

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

that sucks, blue.

Nothing at all wrong with letting them crash at your place.

weddings suck

whocares said...

My theory is, if you are asking people in the wedding to come from out of town you should provide them somewhere to stay. Getting there is their own problem.

El Padrino said...

unless you are a wedding planner
then, they are casssshh

El Padrino said...

Provide or arrange (discounted rooms, free shuttles, complimentery breakfast, etc)

right?

everytime someone types irregardless i smile.

Just make sure you make out at the rehersal dinner.

Like 5 entrees, a whole keg of beer. Take home boxes to last a week.

Could not disagree with you any more re: Ray Allen and Jason Richardson trades.

Great move by both Celts and Bobcats.

Better for Bobcats cuz they need a veteran scorer.

Celts look to have a good offensive trio with Ray Ray bombing 3's, PP slashing, and AJ to stay tough down low.

Always trade the pick for the proven all-star in their prime. ALWAYS.

We had a block of discounted rooms at a local hotel. I only had one groomsman come in from out of town.

When I went to his wedding in Vegas (he lives there) I paid for hotel and flight. He got a block of discounted rooms at the Grand, but they were still 129 a night.

Ray Allen's prime was 4 years ago

El Padrino said...

"Always trade the pick for the proven all-star in their prime. ALWAYS."

Prime?
32, double anke surgery, SG's always decline rapidly

blue said...

we got everyone discounted rooms, and just about everyone was from out of town

El Padrino said...

Ray allen for the #5 pick is a horrendous trade

Spaceman Spiff said...

was stephen a. even louder than usual last night?

blue said...

I agree with EP on the Ray allen trade...

only thing I can think of is that he has experience in tanking, and Ainge is already looking for OJ Mayo next season

btw Ray Allen has 4 years and like 60M left on his contract...horrible, horrible trade

El Padrino said...

a little bit yes
and stewie's eye is out of control

blue said...

somebody needs to "Benoit" Stephen A.

El Padrino said...

ans weazy if you touch that trade i'll step on your neck

blue said...

Rumor is Portland is just going to buy out Stevie Franchise's contract and let him be a FA this summer.

So basically they traded Randolph away for Frye

El Padrino said...

awesome, knick saved 6MM on that deal but put on two more years of cap money

Spaceman Spiff said...

portland def got fleeced in that deal, but they probly dont care

tem said...

if the SG likes the trades then I hate them.

if he hates them, then I like them.

he is basically always wrong.

tem said...

HUNGRY

where's kermit?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Umm...Go Bucks?

"The wife and I did the all inclusive honeymoon to Playa del Carmen in Me-he-ko. And that was almost 5 jeez."

We did Playa too for the all-inclusive honeymoon, but was nowhere near 5k. I feel good about the 2600 or so we spent.

5k in Mexico they better let you own a city for week!
