calling all toasters

@yomamayomama It's astonishing how hateful and arrogant one can be when you have no knowledge of... well, anything. " It might also be helpful for you to read some current research regarding vaccines." Unbelievable. Really. You have no knowledge of the current (or old) research), and here you spew away.

@aerichner @calling all toasters I'm sure drinking and stuff like that was BK's first concern, as well. Who knows whether it will be a problem. But I don't worry about him separating himself-- he seems to really want to be in charge. After playing for Avery, Byron Scott, and Skiles I'm sure he won't be a control freak, but I doubt anyone will question that he's the boss.
6 months ago on NETS HIRE JASON KIDD AS HEAD COACH
I love it.
The two most critical qualities in a coach are:
---being able to see everything that happens on the court and understand the patterns
---being able to lead men
Kidd is already elite in both. I'm pretty sure he can learn how to use a clipboard, run game films, etc., without too much trouble.
We stunk the place out again. They have no Bynum or Turner, and we get solidly beat at home. Our main offensive play is ISO Joe, and our main defensive play is to wave as they go by. Whenever we started running we'd catch up, but good ol' Avery just can't have that and would pull the players (Marshon and Childress especially). If he isn't fired soon this is going to be (another) long season.

I completely agree with both posts by Mr. DB. And the defense was, if anything, worse than the offense. Two years of utterly incompetent coaching got a pass because somehow either being in New Jersey or the limited talent made it OK for him to coach terribly. It wasn't true, of course, and now we're going to pay the price yet again.

Well, obviously this team is better for the next couple of years and maybe in perpetuity. But what if Mark Cuban had been a little more attentive to Deron Williams? The whole house of cards comes down.

I'm good with this, especially if he doesn't cut his hair.
1 year, 3 months ago on Beck: Josh Childress to the Nets
The whole thing is quite confusing (intentionally, I would guess) on what the relationship will be between insurance prices and voucher size. I think the money quote is this: "Lower income seniors in the future will receive the most generous benefits to ensure that they are able to get care every bit as good as that provided in the current Medicare program." Since other seniors will get lower voucher amounts, there must be some amount of payment on their part. Of course, at the end of the day there will be no such support for lower-income seniors, and everyone will have to pay through the nose. But at least they're making it plain that most people will pay anyway.

So Tyshawn and Deron are both Self-made men? *rimshot*

At least the Bobcats are from basketball country. What is Orlando? Animated mouse country?

@2for18 "I am not looking forward to watching Bynum destroy Lopez."
Well, you'll have to. Looking backwards only finds Lopez destroying Bynum.
4. Should Orlando be contracted out of the league?
I think Orlando's strategy was clear and executed perfectly: "let's ruin our franchise and crap on the competitive balance of the league at the same time. Because we are crap-peddling right-wing douchebags from a cheesy non-city."

On the bright side, Rich DeVos will die knowing that his spite finally got the better of him.
1 year, 4 months ago on ESPN: Dwight-to-Lakers deal is done
I love conventional pundit wisdom: Hump at $12 mil is worth it because the Nets are already good and could have gotten Ilyasova for less. Crash at $10 mil is a ripoff because signing him helped to get Deron. This is because Crash is only better than Hump at taking care of the ball, scoring, running the floor, defending, and leadership, while Hump is a slightly better rebounder.
It's foolishness like this that makes housing bubbles. "Look, prices have never been higher! We have to buy, buy, buy!!!"

Jesus, Dover, give it up already. Without Crash we have no defense, no rebounding, and no SF. And he's a bargain at $10 mil. What's the move after that-- bring in Trenton Hassell?
