    I look at him as a taller antawn Jamison. He's gonna be solid, maybe not a perennial all-star, but definitely could be starting from game 1.

    Those guys, except for Davis, pretty much Lumber outside of 12-feet. As bad as the scoring from our SF has been, might as well let Cody play PG and let Frank play the strech with MKG guarding the perimeter shooters. If Lance could somehow find his game and Hairston turns into the savant shooter with limitless range and can guard the perimeter, Inthinknwe could be a really solid-squad.

  3. TheNewStandard added a post in a topic Coming to terms with the Frank Kaminsky pick...   

    Frank seems to have a mean-streak and a no-holds-barred personality. Could be a cold-blooded unconsciionable killer. He looks like he's ready to go get his...Zeller and big Al are perfect compliments. Now, if only MKG can somehow become a dead-eye shooter (we see so many vets become better shooters as they age,) and Lance and Hairston can get over the weak parts of their games, this team looks a lot more like a playoff contender. Frank is kinda strange but he will never be confused as being "a nice guy." And we really need some grit on this team. I'm ok with the pick, I mean, at Justicd Winslow's best...his ceiling could also be really close to being like Lance.

    guess that's why the official announcement didn't come until close to 8 pm.

    the game officials were in the Dean Dome...all of them. everything was ready to go.

    "Officials decided to postpone the game after it became clear that Duke wouldn’t be able to arrive in time for the scheduled tipoff at 9:10 p.m. Wednesday."

    name calling and personal insults are a dead giveaway that someone's mad.

    Mavs traded away BWright averaging 9 pts and 5 boards. IMO, Amare is an upgrade. Some guys have all the luck (talking about Cuban.)

    whoever asked about the "15 players who benefitted from AfAm classes," where does it say those classes "kept them eligible?" there were like 3600 students that took advantage of the lenient grading...so I'm guessing it "kept them eligible" too? c'mon man.

  14. TheNewStandard added a post in a topic The "Evolution" of Rich Cho's Trades   

    if we continue on the current trend the Hornets are on, a lottery pick isn't out of the question.

    it's a pretty deep draft and I like the youth movement and starting the team from the ground up.

    it's not out of the realm of possibility that we could have an entire starting squad made up of drafted players still developing.

    a seasoned lineup of Walker, PJ, MKG, Zeller and Vonleh could look promising. who knows, we could end up with a pick high enough for Cauley-Stein. add Vonleh and Biyombo and that's a pretty diverse group, lean and mean.

    just hoping MKG and Zeller continue on their improving trajectory and we could be on to something.

    PJ could start this year and as long as he keeps up with a strong workout regiment, he's on the fast track to being a cold-blooded assassin.

    I'm encouraged.

    classes on a curve, independent study, unrealistically easy electives with no attendance and paper classes worth a couple credits are commonplace at every university.

    you can take introductory classes until you are blue in the face and most classes don't even have an attendence policy but you have to complete online assignments. there are curriculums like General studies, theology and sociology that are basic degree curriculum that have very few guidelines with respect to must take courses.

    unless you attended college before 1980 I can understand but that is the collegiate climate of the day.
