    Exactly. Why would they take on that contract?

    Pelicans should wait, however if Paul and AD won't commit to signing anywhere, the deals might not be much better. I mean they could get lucky and get a DeRozan for Kawhi. But that kind of gamble might not pay off for a lot of teams. Might not even pay off for Toronto. We'll see.

    Yeah, the Paul George deal worked out great for both Indiana and Oklahoma City, so I think more teams are willing to give it a shot. Toronto and Kawhi I don't know that it's looking like it'll be quite as successful, but until Leonard is suiting up for the Clippers, we won't know for sure.

    Alec Burks traded again in a 3 team deal, now headed to Sac. Shumpert to Rockets, Brandon Knight to Cavs, plus a few other pieces.

    Kings fans I am sitting next to while I watch James Hardin dismantle them are excited about the trade.

    De'Aaron Fox is kinda fun to watch.

    Not related to this season but I didn’t want to search

    ESPN with an interesting article on former NBA ref Tim Donaghy and whether he conspired to fix the games he bet on and was officiating.

    He had motive and opportunity.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Excellent investigation and reporting. Probably only something that could be done 10 years later when people are able to talk without incriminating themselves. Its clear that Donaghy influenced the outcome of games, a certainty that his influence changed winners and losers both against the spread and in the W/L column. It's also clear that the NBA did not come clean on the depth of this scandal. The NBA's position that he didn't fix games requires an extremely narrow definition of game fixing.

    Ja Rule has now cursed the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Sacramento Kings.

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    That Cousins injury did not look good.




    That’s almost exactly how my quad looked when I blew it out my senior season of football. It was a pretty quick recovery, though. I had surgery to repair it, and while I missed b-ball season, I was back at 100% by track season.

    Looks like I missed a hell of a game to turn off at the half.

    all things considered that has to be one of the most improbable (maybe the most) wins, considering the score in the 3rd quarter and two teams involved - biggest upsets - in sports history.

    granted the stakes aren't as high, but tyson/douglas can't touch that.

    The failure of a Durant/Harden/Westbrook combo didn’t blow up OKC. This collapse should do it.

    Great game so far by the Clippers. The sense of inevitability of a Warriors run has not materialized yet. Yet.

    Kawhi is such a great player. When you take into account postseason performance, he's so much better than guys like Harden and Westbrook. For his career, he literally shoots 10% better from the field than Harden. Add in his defensive prowess and there's no comparison. He's also a very smart player, Westbrook is an all-time dummy.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    How do professional basketball players who are played millions for being good at basketball not realize that if you’re down 4 with a 2-second differential on the shot clock you have to foul to have any chance at all of winning?

    They shouldn’t have to hear the coach telling them to foul. That was really dumb.

    I don’t like Harden, but I got to admit he is the best blurry vision player I’ve seen play the game. He’s as good with blurry vision as he is when he can see clearly.

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
