Buries it high and away:
|Jun-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: knicks fans boo the team's first round draft pick. Hey, I think they booed KP too, and he's turned out to be a near all star when healthy. Let's give it a chance. Remember, Isiah Thomas is no longer the GM...|
|Jun-22-18|| ||HeMateMe: Utah gets two no. 1 picks, Donavan Mitchell and grayson allen.|
|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: The "leaking" of picks going on just before the draft all the way up until teams get "on the clock" is something that individual NBA franchises will need to address.|
When Hawks GM Travis Schlenk heard that Milwaukee was planning to draft Villanova G Donte Divicenzo at #17 he new that the guy he wanted at #19 (Kevin Huerter) would be available. So, he cancelled a plan to trade up with a few different teams with whom he was having discussions to trade upwards.
And it worked.
|Jun-22-18|| ||WannaBe: loose lips, sink ships.|
|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: There's wildly differing opinions but I give the Knicks a (!!) for their pick of Kevin Knox at #9 (instead of Michael Porter). In past years they would've taken a more polished player instead of someone with bigger upside. It's a bold choice.|
The 76ers Mikal Bridges trade drama thing gets a big (??) in my book. The NBA's a freaking business, people need to stop crying about it.
Dallas gets a (!) for the Doncic thing. It's not without risk but they didn't necessarily give up that much to the Hawks (protected future 1st rounder) and Mark Cuban has always been friendly to international players and styles. They can become San Antonio north.
The Atlanta Hawks get a (!!??) for their unclear choices - they got 3 highly accurate shooters in the 1st round and (potentially) a candidate to be their "next Steph Curry" in Trae Young. The Hawks REALLY needed to take a chance on a home run as season ticket sales are down and they've had a lot of top 5 dud big men selections in the first round in history.
Everyone here in Atlanta is saying that new owner Anthony Ressler pushed for the selection to be Trae Young as he wants to take a chance on finding a signature player for the team.
The Celtics get an absolute (!!!!) for ending up with Robert Williams at #27. Simply un-freaking-believable how they keep doing this.
Robert Williams could be another Clint Capela for them because we know that Brad Stevens will get his work ethic and attitude in line quickly.
|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN basically knew the entire 1st round minutes before every player was picked, all you had to do was follow his twitter:|
<"Source: The Lakers are unlikely to resist Mo Wagner with the 25th pick.

|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: While working out, rugby star drafted by the Eagles didn't understand that you have to take your helmet off to drink Gatorade:|

|Jun-22-18|| ||OhioChessFan: <Joel Embiid kicks penalty shot past TJ McConnell at charity soccer event.>|
Maybe he can give Messi lessons.
|Jun-22-18|| ||chancho: Robert Williams defense is practically elite and he's only 20 freaking years old.|
His shot blocking ability will definitely help the Celtics.
His offense is raw but with Brad Stevens coaching him, he will improve.
And Al Horford mentoring him on being a big man? Whew!
<Williams: Al Horford is a great example, a great vet. He leads everyone so I'm happy to be around him.">
|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: Anyone know the 1st Senior drafted?
Utah Jazz selected Grayson Allen at #21 overall.
|Jun-22-18|| ||WannaBe: 12-10 Patriots over Seahawks, Bottom 7th, good football game.|
Did anyone take the over on this football game?
|Jun-22-18|| ||Bobsterman3000: Donovan Mitchell and Grayson Allen were were very chummy at the draft last night but they got very chippy with each other several times in ACC play. The whole world applauded Mitchell in 2016 when he got away with this sneaky smack upside Allen's head, LOL:|
Oh, and Grayson Allen costed himself money.
If he goes pro after his breakout sophomore year he is clearly top 10. But his numbers went down the next 2 years and he appeared more tentative and cracks in his game began to be discussed.
If selected at #10 his first 4-year rookie deal would be worth around $13 million, the deal he will get for his #21 selection will be around $9 million for the 1st four years.
|Jun-22-18|| ||WannaBe: Final score, 14-10, Patriots, Brady threw for 500 yards and 2 INT.|
|Jun-22-18|| ||Penguincw: Nelson Cruz with the touchdown.
Geez, SEA last 3 games has blown two 5 run leads, and a 4 run lead. And BOS and NYY are potential playoff opponents for them.
As for the slugfest, these 2 offenses are great, but these 2 pitchers just started a week ago, so the hitters know what to expect. Though last time LeBlanc and Wright faced each other the final was 1-0. Could be the same story tomorrow with Leake vs. Rodriguez.
|Jun-22-18|| ||WannaBe: In other "Football" news, Ravens 7, Falcons 7, 11th quarter.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||WannaBe: Great day for double-header. SD@SF 1PM (suppose to be a very warm day) then LAD@NYM with some guy named Kershaw pitching.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||plang: Germany in trouble at halftime - unless they rally they are out|
They have never failed to advance beyond Group Stage
|Jun-23-18|| ||plang: Germany, very fortunate to be down only 1-0 at the half, play the last part of the game a man down and score the winning goal with literally seconds left.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||john barleycorn: <plang: Germany, ... score the winning goal with literally seconds left.>|
That is how to win games.
|Jun-23-18|| ||WorstPlayerEver: You have to take the losses to win.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||john barleycorn: <WorstPlayerEver: You have to take the losses to win.>|
Are you paraphrasing <chessalem>?
|Jun-23-18|| ||saffuna: Germany was attacking the whole second half. Two tough saves by Swedish goalkeeper, hit the post once.|
|Jun-23-18|| ||HeMateMe: Grayson allen top ten as a sophmore? A skiiny head case with no D? He was smart to play four years and grow up a little.|
I think lebron goes to philly unless LA quickly acquires a great FA to pair with LBJ.
|Jun-24-18|| ||chancho: <Bobsterman3000> is quite right about the Capela/Williams comparison.|
