    The more I see stories about all this, the less I am beginning to care.

    I watch NFL for the games, not the judiciary systems they implement. So while any lies or coverups are bad, I don't think I...

    In a word, no.

    What is the point? To stop Old Joe Johnson and the sinking Nets?

    Here's a list of starting SF in the East that are a bigger player for Ross to guard.

    Luol Deng - 6'9 220 - 28...

    When I mean like T-Mac I'm talking about role. Ross will never be as good as T-Mac, but in terms of role, he fits better to McGrady than Matthews. Matthews is a spot up shooter on offence (catch and...

    Really? I like Matthews, and I think for the short term, his game is stylistically what we want from Ross. But at the end of the day, I think Ross could be better than Matthews. Ross is way more...

    Ross is very hard to find a good comparable. Looking at his stats from last year, the closest sophomore comparisons I could find were Q Rich, OJ Mayo, Wesley Matthews, Eric Gordon and (old school)...

    I'm certainly not knocking Ross or his D. But to say that he has "figured out" the D so Jonas should have too is a bit much. Ross makes errors too but he is in a much simpler position to defend.

    For someone who brings up defence a lot you seem woefully ignorant of the fact that one position is significantly harder to learn than another.

    Man to man, on-ball defence is the easiest to...

    I'm also curious to see that if a player is found to be guilty of domestic violence on more than one occasion, does the new NFL policy still count that as a first time offender? I'm sure Goodell...

    That would seem logical since team defence and help defence require a longer learning curve than man to man fundamentals; and the numbers would seem to reflect this.
