Raps Fan’s 3pt Shot + 1

by

Kyrie Irving

1) If you’re Colangelo, and both these guy are available. do you draft DeMar Rozan or Stephen Curry? 2) If we know Bosh wont resign, and Detroit comes knocking in the summer with an offer of Prince/Afflalo/Johnson, do we bite? 3) Is Giorgos Printezis a keeper, a poor mans Jorge Garbajosa, or is BC just   …Continue Reading


Roll Call – Season Wrap up

Kyrie Irving

The “I told you so” edition Adams – possessed the characteristics you look for as a general manager of an NBA franchise: a fire hydrant with a headband. Hassan brought as much value to our team as would rap lessons from 50 Cent given to Jake Voskuhl. Banks – at least Hassan isn’t costing us   …Continue Reading
