    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    It reminds me a lot of what Klopp does at Liverpool. The part that confuses me is CP supposedly being stronger on the right when much of the press about what’s going wrong for him at Chelsea is his being used out of position - ie not on the left. Pretty sure there’s an athletic article from the...

    Kyrie is dirty rotten no good and we have schadenfreude…?

    He’s Rick’s brother? Not sure there’s another set of sibling I have such disparate views of.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    It’s funny, every time I start going down this road with Hamilton, Horner says something that has me right back pulling for ze Germans (at least in that two man/team battle).

    Bruins sign Nick Foligno to a 2-year deal

    It also caused me to regularly wonder why Jiri Slegr was so out of position so often. Drove me crazy.

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    I remember (faulty though my memory may be) those two specifically joking about it.

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    Interesting. I’d always thought McHale was the go-to example for “guys who are really 7’ but don’t want to be called centers”.

    Red Claws Game Thread (2019-20)

    Having recently read an article on Thabeet’s (I know, I know) gleague dnp-cd’s/eventual release being largely due to it being a 6’8” and under league, that Tacko gets so much time seems encouraging alone. Also makes his time in Maine seem particularly valuable, as his ability to survive vs...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    From a Bleacher Report article (just the first I clicked on in a quick google search):“Per Rothstein, the new rules include an exception for Klutch Sports' Rich Paul, who does not have a bachelor's degree but has become one of the most powerful agents in basketball.”...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Not really replying to you two specifically, as I’ve heard others say similar, but didn’t they carve out an exemption specifically for Paul? Seems like this is more about preventing the next Paul/Klutch. Doesn’t really change the overall view of these new rules or make the NCAA less loathsome...

    Al Horford: he gawn

    An early small ball 5 maybe, but traditionally more of a small 4 (smith). Same with Millsap really. No arguing both are better defenders than Morris and gimpy Hayward, so it’s no wonder Al’s d looks better with them. He was the one playing the 5 though.

    Al Horford: he gawn

    Probably, but he’s only made the team as a 5. He’s also played as a 5 the vast majority of his career (even when he was still undersized at the position).

    Celtics Draft Pick Watch 2016

    Except I don't believe you can hide someone through team defense who simply doesn't care/try at that end. And I don't mean he's bad at it, that you can work with, I mean well below minimal effort. I'd also argue he's a one man less than the sum of its parts machine at the end he is good at...

    Celtics Draft Pick Watch 2016

    The only reason I'd want Howard on my team is if I HAD to have either him or harden. The only good the latter has brought to the entirety of the sport is inspiring my dreams of KG "mentoring" him.

    San Siro's Siren Call: 2015-16 UEFA Champions League

    I'm an idiot and forgot to record the games so I haven't seen the Suarez incidents, but can you really trust the opinion of those papers (especially Marca) when either barca or a Madrid based team is involved? Is my Suarez man crush showing?

    USWNT - World Cup > Olympics

    Dude, come are much better than this. I did read the article and don't think anything he posted was all that objectionable based on it. There are what, a half dozen truly competitive women's international teams? It's a hell of a lot easier to be the best when you only have a few...

    2015-2016 NBA Game Thread

    A friend and I were just discussing if he was the second best ever from a nc school. For me Duncan is the only one close. C Paul, Worthy and Dougherty can head up the next group with Vinny del negro and Tom Guggliotta.
