Jason, this is fantastic. I always love reading your reports on the franchise itself.

Michael, yesterday on Twitter you put forth a lot of arguments in favor of Asik over Anderson, but you always tempered your case by saying you'd still rather keep Anderson. What makes you prefer Ryno over the player that you think the Spurs would choose?

Can you comment on how Iggy might affect Jrue's play given their history?

@Michael McNamara Indeed this is one of the highlights of this tournament. I'm left unsure how to vote.

This is a really clever piece-- a unique concept and excellent execution. More people need to see this!

Excellent in more ways than one. Monty gets a diverse coaching experience in addition to peerage with high-caliber coaches. And of course, as mentioned, this reflects very well on the Pelicans organization.

It's the little things.

@Jason Calmes @JabberWalker @twowatt8 That was the first thing I tried before typing that original comment, because that is the exact problem I was having last time I touched JavaScript. Unfortunately, it's not pace-dependent. It flat out will not stay dropped unless my mouse hovers over "About."

 Glad to be of help anyway I can ^^

This is pretty exciting: both NBC and CBS have quoted this article in the past hour.

I apologize, I should've been clearer. The box doesn't stay dropped down once the moused is rolled off of "About" and onto the menu itself. jQuery magic, I tell you. I've had the same problems before as well.

By the way, guys, the dropdown menu for "About" at the top of the site is broken in IE8 (yeah, I know...).

That's a shame. That piece had me pretty excited. At least Michael can take solace in the fact that his journalism can jumpstart the NBA business machine!

To those suggesting this is the agent sticking to his story: as far as I know, Saric's camp was reported to be "considering" withdrawing. This agent has told MM that they're flat-out done. There's no ambiguity left by that email. Brinksmanship stops working when you actually detonate the bomb.

I can tell this took a lot of work. Thanks for the response-- I look forward to your next article.

Michael, I really respect your research and opinions regarding the draft, especially after last year's coverage. This is an outstanding article. Can you offer any additional insight as to how you conducted your research and came to this conclusion? I think I understand what you say about the emphasis on passing and Monty's comments on drafting for need, but what else has led you to such a confident prediction? How much do you agree (or disagree) with what Dell is presumably thinking?

"You can take all those numbers and say 'He’s only 19!'  It’s true.  He won’t turn twenty for another two weeks."

That made me laugh so hard I could hear the grumbling from the neighboring cubicles. Well said! Ryan's stats on (against? haha) Len are compelling-- I went Shabazz.

I don't reallyt want Muhammad or Len, but I'm interested in seeing what others think between the two.

Domains with fewer letters tend to be valued highly, especially if they contain common word(s). If you go check any average domain registration site, you can see that their high-profile auctions are almost exclusively low-character count with high marketability.

That's a good question, and I don't know if it's already been answered. If you can wait until later tonight (after work!), I can write a script to calculate that for us.

For the contest, I'm going with 6th and MCW.

But I wouldn't be surprised to see a trade if we move either up or down tonight.
