    Am I the only one that thought the Mem-LAC game was the one to watch, over the LAL-Blazers?

    CP3 is amazing. Just simply amazing.

    I haven't read through this thread, so not sure if this has been posted already, but even if it has, it's worth a 2nd look.

    Yeah now that I think about it he kinds of reminds me of a young Baron Davis.
    Who can shoot like Nash. I dont really have a good comparison. I like the Tony Parker one because they both are elite at changing speeds. However Lillard's strength sets him apart from TP. I really dont like comparisons every player is so different in many ways. All I know is I would of done whatever it took to get him in the draft he will be what Morey calls a foundational player and you can't really overpay for a 21 year old foundational player.

    So this is a long shot, but anyone in/around Franklin? I'm gonna have 6 hours to kill there tomorrow, anything at all to do other than play with my phone? Bowling alley? Movies? Something?

    Both movies and a bowling alley are available in Franklin. North of Franklin 10 miles is Greenwood with more to offer. Greenwood mall for 1 thing. Some nice eating establishments too. If you want the value sandwich of the day, try the Patriot's Grill across the street on Madison from the Greenwood mall with a stacked French dip sandwich today for $1.99!

    15 miles south of Franklin on I-65 at exit 76 is the hugh 76 antique mall where you can easily spend hours there as I do.

    If none of this excites you, there is always the Franklin city library where you can spend your time or stroll the Franklin College campus.

    I'm sure you'll find something to occupy your time.

    FYI Kobe is the one who wanted the Princeton and hand picked Eddie Jordan to be the OC of it. I really doubt Mike Brown has anything to do with that offense Eddie Jordan made his living running it. I really like a triangle based offense(which the Princeton is a form of)

    But I agree it made no sense to get Nash he is a good shooter which is required in the system but when you have Nash you should just run but that style doesnt win unless you defend.

    I think if you give it time it will work they will need time. But make no mistake about it they will let Nash be Nash when the time comes(playoff time) IMO and they will run more and not use the Princeton as much.

    But that offense is really good and would be a great fit if they didnt have Nash.


    You can tell HOU just ran basic PnR and just gave the ball to Harden and said make plays for us. The Lakers could do that with Nash and Kobe now but come playoff time when defenses clamp up that wont work every time down. I like that they will have structure and eventually will have freedom(I think the shackles will come off after Christmas once it's clear they fully understand the system)
    RT @ArashMarkazi: Kobe Bryant used "stupid" and "idiotic" to describe fans and pundits who want the Lakers to scrap offense after 2 games.

    What Kobe wants he gets I bet they stick with it and at years end they will be better for it

    Ah. Franklin college. My undergrad alma mater. Love the place. My vote is to get a reuben and a pitcher of beer at The Willard in downtown Franklin. Was just there today. Wish i would have seen this earlier. I would've bought you that pitcher of beverage today.

    Genuine question:Is Avery Johnson a good coach?Is he still living on his title run with the Mavs thus still having a job in the NBA?

    I'm not sure if Brooks is a good coach, all he does is call Iso plays.

    What is up with these teams giving 40+ million dollar contracts to mediocre and unproven guards? DeRozan? Holiday? Curry?

    In reference to the original question about Avery Johnson:

    ISO is all you need when you have Dirk in his prime. "Pump Fake, Pump Fake, Shoot! Good job big fella!"

    Dirk was almost automatic from midrange during Avery's tenure.

    I still remember the time many here didn't want to trade Danny for Parker because Parker was old and broken down

    TNT just showed Westbrook's mental error that cost them the game. Complete lost Parker under the basket staring at Martin
