    Add in all the hard work our players have been putting in, I'd say we'd then get some sort of A as our grade. Very good offseason for us.

    The summer isn't over yet, as we now know from the failed Anthony Randolph trade, Larry Bird is still working the phones and trying to make this team better.

    The article almost made it sound like Rush and Ford will be the players that we'll be trading. Makes sense. If Dunleavy returns to form, I can actually see Indiana resigning him for a smaller contract.

    Center Roy Hibbert went to summer school with Hall of Fame big man Bill Walton, primarily to work on his offensive moves, but Hibbert should benefit overall.

    I'm sorry but the above comment is why I tend not to respect NBA reporting/journalism, especially those onsite. Its all about the perception of the writers rather than actual fact finding. Bill Walton and Roy Hibbert both were quoted as saying that Walton felt Roy's offensive skills were pretty good and didn't need much work, it was therefore the defense and rebounding that Walton would focus on the most. Only thing the writer of the report card needed to do was use the internet to get his facts straight. But that would be too close to journalism. So he makes it seem as if defensive improvement could be an added bonus or an afterthought of Roy's time with Walton.
