I just wish the kid was playing against better comp... Hard to judge anything against that level of competition. Only thing I know is he works really hard and he killed when he played with the guys on his visit. While that's encouraging you would like to see that repeated a few time before being confident in saying this or that. Guess we will find out more next year, since you can't rely on anything you see in Kenner League.

Over the last 14:59, we outscored Nova 34-28. I prefer to look at that, totally meaningless though it may be, and ignore the rest of the game. I will just say that it's nice to have a bunch of players who can make shots on your team.

I think the Dems will ultimately back down here, but we'll see. Bad idea to shut the government down (yeah, it was a bad idea in the past, and it's still a bad idea), although I could live with shutting down the White House, if that were only a possibility.
I just wrote an email to Pruitt, asking him to tell Trump to curb his offensive language. I told him I worked with wonderful colleagues at the EPA from the sh_thole countries of Haiti and Nigeria. Trump should just shut up!
This will get you totally nowhere because the EPA is persona non grata in Washington, DC. And it's Pruitt who leads the retreat. You should have said that you and your wonderful colleagues worked for Fox News. And you could then have sent your email to the sh**hole-in-chief.

Mosely is not a great ball handler but he’s our best shooting guard, which is why he was in there down the stretch. We don’t have any perfect options. Either we go for the slightly better offensive pairing (Mosely/Blair) or we sacrifice some offense for Mulmore’s better ball handing.
Ewing methodically puts Dickerson in at around 14:00 into the first half, and I don’t understand it. His minutes need to be severely limited. He’s not going to develop and he’s worse than our freshmen. He really shouldn’t play.
Disagree. He's not great but every now and then we play better with him as the point. I think his minites are about where they should be. I wish Walker got a bit more run though. He's great st generating offensive rebounds, tips, and steals. It's unfortunate he's stuck behind Derrickson and Govan on the depth chart.
Except that there's nobody else on the depth chart behind Jesse and Marcus (George Muresan?). So he should certainly be getting some minutes.
LaVar and Co. gets an F rating from the Better Business Bureau. I would have more faith in that BBB than the one promoted by the huckster. And his latest missile against Luke Walton is another pile of dung. Thanks for that, Jeff Goodman!
Before everyone dumps all over Jagan for his six turnovers, which is a truly awful stat, it's worth noting that he also had 13 points and five assists. He certainly contributes more than Dickerson. So it looks like the potential is there for him to be able to play the point, and hopefully he can use this as a growth experience and reduce the turnovers next time.
Also worth noting on the other side - Tariq Owens had eight blocks. Wow.
Sorry, Jack. Your days are numbered. You are going to be replaced as team mascot by a giant apple turnover. Perhaps it will have arms and legs and look a little like Sponge Bob. the turnover will be made with lots of oil, so that the arms are prone to fumbling everything and the feet are prone to traveling.
While Pickett has certainly not been stellar, I think it's too early to move him to the bench. And I acknowledge that keeping him in the starting lineup may not be the best thing for the team in the short run. But I would still stay with him. I also like the spark that Blair brings off the bench (even though he is much more of a volume shooter than a quality shooter). Mosley, Kaleb, Pickett, Marcus, Govan. I won't argue with anyone who wants to sub Blair for Pickett, but just my two cents.
