    Watched a great documentary called Trophy Kids about these parents who are pushing their kids to be professional athletes. Highly recommended. Highly entertaining and infuriating by turns. But it's...

    Or, you keep a stable of young talent at the back of your bench to replace guys who leave in free agency or are traded or get hurt.

    In terms of minutes, the reality is that the Raps have 9...

    No, it's a coach keeping his rotations intact. Just like Stotts did buy moving the seldom used Mo Harkless into the starting role with Vonleh out.

    I get that not everyone watches a tonne of teams...

    Oh, I like Vogel. But in the spring of 2014 he was coaching for his job and Bird was questioning his player friendly approach publicly.

    Funny thing about Ross. Last 2 games Powell has been after it defensively and all of a sudden Ross is energized on that end of the floor and getting up on his man playing aggressive and physical. ...

    It's funny. I remember when everyone and their dog thought Vogel was awful and wanted him fired after their second half collapse and playoff struggles a couple years back. Now he's great. Go figure.

    Hard to ask for much more on the road. Get ahead. Weather the home team runs. Close it out. I thought Portland played really well. Toronto is just a very tough team. Lowry and Derozan were...

    I don't think you'll need to worry. The donor classes have decided they want Rubio vs. Clinton so that, no matter who wins, the graft keeps coming. The Democrats will go along cause they have no real...

    Portland and Denver on the road. You never want to miss those games cause they get weird.

    Portland also gets the home cooking with the refs like no other team. Raps will face a tough whistle...

    What? He's the key guy on the team. Virtually every key guy is playing ~35MPG. Raps aren't the Spurs. They don't have a margin of error large enough to afford them the luxury of sitting Lowry for...

    Not sure where you are located but, if you haven't already, you should get a referral to a sports medicine doctor/clinic. They are generally pretty easy and quick to get in with referrals (as opposed...

    I like this. Subject matter experts deserve a large degree of deference, especially when they have access to information you don't have, so, people should be more modest (is that the right word?) in...

    Casey and the front office have been emphatic about establishing and maintaining consistent roles this year. I think Powell stays in there to keep Ross in his role off the bench. I thought Powell...

    Is anyone following the fallout from the Democrat caucuses in Iowa? Coin tosses? You have got to be kidding me. Why not rock, paper, scissors? LOL.

    Oh, fuck me. Every game that guy leads is 4 hours long with 300 fouls. Forgot about him.

    But if you're a fan of watching guys shoot free throws all game then he's the man.
