    For real! If I could, I'd donate my tissue to him in order to extend his career. Too bad it doesn't work that way.
    Yo, I had forgotten you guys passed on him for Morrison.

    I just met Brandon Roy
    I know this isn't Hornet-related but I had to share this experience about one of the greatest "what if" players of our generation. Those who follow the game closely knew who the man was for not only Portland but the NBA. He was as classy as they came, clutch as hell (insanely feared every time he had the ball in his hands with the game on the line) and one of the hardest workers the game ever saw. Roy literally busted his ass out of the league -- playing injured cut his career much too short. If it weren't for his knees giving out, he'd be on his way to the Hall of Fame.
    Anyways, I ran into him here [Miami; private airport] and I immediately approached him to shake his hand. Brandon was as cool as the other side of the pillow. He gave me a firm handshake and a genuine smile. Roy definitely appeared to be quite appreciative that he wasn't forgotten yet. Sensing that thought, I told him what he had accomplished a massive amount in his 7-8 year career. I then brought up that Maverick playoff game as a prime example and he chuckled. Greatness, no matter how short it is, stays imprinted in one's mind after witnessing it.
    We proceeded to talk about Basketball and life itself over a drink for about 20 minutes. Brandon still stays close to the game by mentoring youth players but he mentioned it's beyond difficult for him to accept that at age 30 he already has "old man knees". It's painfully obvious that his competitive nature remains alive and well in his facial expressions. Eventually we went our separate ways but before we did he gave me some personal advice and [shockingly] his Beats. 
    What an experience!

    It's a Point Guard driven league nowadays. If anything, analysts are saying that Goran left money on the table and that he's easily worth 100 million. Dragic is a Top 10 PG (only behind Westbrook, Paul, Conley, Lillard, Wall, Curry and Lowry). You gotta pay him.

    Worse than MKG? I severely, severely doubt that.
    But I guess we'll find out in 2-3 years. His jumper looks better than what people are proclaiming on here (his first practice with The Heat went phenomenally) his two-step is Harden-esque, and his release is insanely quick.
    I doubt Winslow will have to reconstruct his shot.

    It looks promising but Southpaw looks a tad better.

    I appreciate the kind words, good sir!
    Believe it or not, my dog is the same way, man. She loves to scent mark all the fugging time too. I have to literally walk her around the block for her to finally poo. It's the only way for her to run out of pee. Try that lol

    Kinda. I guess I dig the idea of trying each bar's signature dishes but so long as the food from the surrounding area is of the higher quality, it's fine. I mean, that's the only negative I could think of anyways.
    PhillyB would have to hose me out.

    I'd go.
    The only thing that turns me off is the menu or lack thereof. Other than that, the bar is a viable and refreshing option. I like it.

    Naw, she's a big dog (around 75 lbs). Most of that weight is around her chest and neck area though.
    You're kidding, right? Lol...

  10. Promethean Forerunner added a post in a topic Anyone see this on Instagram?   

    I've learned to stop obsessing over stuff like this. The Panthers are the red-haired stepchild of the NFCS. And I'm okay with that. Our boys tend to play at a different level when they're overlooked or disrespected. I think they thrive with the Us-vs-The-World mentality.
    Cam is a genetic freak and Luke is a Top 3 overall defensive player.
    I don't need an article from NFL.com or ESPN or PFF to tell me that. So, I'm cool. Let them troll I say.

    It's hard to tell. I adopted her when she was 1-2 years old and I've had her for about 6-7 years, so I assume she's around 8-9 years old. She's probably now considered 'elderly' or middle-aged (I think Australian Ridgebacks have a 12-14 year lifespan).
    That's what I'm assuming. She must have gotten excited about something while I was gone and she hurt herself in the process. It sucks. I have to accept that she's getting older even though she still loves to play like a puppy.

    Thanks so much!
    I've eliminated stomach issues. She's eating and drinking, and she's not vomiting or has diarrhea. So I'm breathing a bit better now. She's also walking better now too. It has to be her neck or back.
    Thanks again!

    Dog Experts I need your help!!!!
    Okay, I just got home from work and my dog is acting quite strange. When I left her this morning, she was absolutely normal but seven hours later she appears to be in pain. She doesn't want to jump up on the bed, walk much around the house or even eat. I also touched one of her front legs and she yelped. She seems to be moving gingerly and appears to only stay in the shape of C. However, when I took her outside, she started walking faster, sniffing, in the shape of an I, drank water when I brought her back inside, etc (normal stuff).
    I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow but any advice? Have any of you seen this type of behavior?

  14. Promethean Forerunner added a post in a topic Coming to terms with the Frank Kaminsky pick...   

    It's starting to make sense. Not with most Hornet fans but I can see the direction MJ and Cho want to go in. Everything rides on Frank developing into that guy. To me, it's a very solid line up. Kemba (ball movement), MKG (defense, rebounding) and Kaminsky (scoring, distribution). If it all goes according to plan, that's a nice trio for the future. It's not sexy or flashy but it's good enough to win games. Of course, if you guys do manage to land Curry, perceptions will change.

  15. Promethean Forerunner added a post in a topic Coming to terms with the Frank Kaminsky pick...   

    It's rather interesting. I can see why MJ preferred Kaminsky over Winslow. The Hornets desperately needed a scorer and Justise isn't that. However, it's a very risky move because Winslow's shot is already there. As the article alluded, at age 19 Winslow is further along than Kidd-Gilchrist when it comes down to his mechanics and form. He doesn't need an overhaul like MKG did. So the potential is there for Winslow to be a 20/10 guy but he's got work to do. In Miami, he'll be surrounded by experienced and top level coaches. It'll all be up to him.
    Everything hinges on Kaminsky adapting to the NBA. If he can cope with the speed and physicality from defenders, then he should be fine but I sense he'll struggle mightily, especially his first two seasons.
