Interesting article. 

What I noticed with the eye test was the varying speeds seen in Lillard's game. I didn't see that with Bayless. He was a bull in a china shop...who would ALWAYS go..can't remember..but one direction. And wasn't good at finishing at the rim once scouted. He didn't protect the ball going up for the layup/dunk. Lillard does seem to do this.

Am looking forward to the season.

Timbo, you do such a beautiful job! It's been about a week since your post and the Blazers did sign Hickson and Freeland. So that's good. I think they somehow kept Hickson's bird rights.

His one year contract was smart..see how he does when the team is actually trying to win. Sacramento may have been a fluke..I hope so.

Saw the first SL game and know the SL games mean nothing right? I did see a few things that I like about Leonard. 1. He has a normal/good running gait. 2. He has a normal build. He has calves that don't look like the belong to a Biafran. And nice broad shoulders. 3. He can do cartwheels. 4. He can make free throws. Has nice form on the free throws and made them in "clutch" (as clutch as SL gets) situation. 5. He can dunk, block and pass out of the post...in SL.

 

He went to U of I and is Caucasian..so no minority status. U of I is not known for admitting dim bulbs..even athletic dim bulbs. So..he can probably learn if well coached.

I didn't bring up  the Caucasian factoid on BE as I figured I'd get a WARNING for inciting controversy!!!

 

Do you watch SL games?

Hey..is there any way to send that TO Andre?? Maybe via the Denver Nuggets..George Karl?? Am happy for Andre..I think he likes it in Denver. Hope they make it out of the first round at least ONCE while he is there...don't like the "he has never made it out of the first round" thing...am sure he would like to get that one off his back as well.

I mean..are there any other blog sites ..for sports..that allow no swearing? I said "crap" fairly recently on the site and got a message..not a warning but a "watch it" message..it's OK to say "sucks" though. I mean vaccuums suck, so that's ok.

Check out Hollinger's column on how the Pacers should go after Nash. It might make you feel better. um..no the end of the story is not good..but I will post it here for you.

"Indiana: And this, my friends, is why non-glamour markets are always operating at a huge disadvantage. The Pacers are a good team with a need at point guard and a bunch of cap space; with Nash, they could be champions. In fact, I would be hard-pressed to find a more perfect free-agent fit.

By all rights, the Pacers should be the favorites to land Nash. At the moment, they aren't even on the radar.

The Pacers will have about $12 million in cap space this summer, including the cap holds on restricted free agents Roy Hibbert and George Hill. Indiana could offer Darren Collison in a sign-and-trade with Phoenix and give Nash a three-year deal worth about $45 million, which would put the Pacers on equal or near-equal footing with every other suitor for his services.

Meanwhile, basketball-wise this is by far the best team for which Nash could sign up and still be paid market value. The Pacers would just need to re-sign Hibbert and Hill and fill in the gaps on the wings with exception money, and Indy would give itself a three-year run at winning a championship. Could you imagine this offense with Nash at the controls, all that outside shooting at spots 2 through 4 and Hibbert in the paint?

Alas, imagine is all you'll ever get to do. It won't happen, because it's Indiana, and it doesn't appear Nash has any desire to go there. And I'm sorry, Commissioner Stern, but all the lockouts in the world aren't going to fix this."

It pains you to say it...it is the truth....according to whom????

LaMarcus is a superstar. You are wrong about that. You will see. As soon as the Blazers get a coach or a GM who knows what he is doing...and they get a decent point guard and maybe just one other mid range YOUNGER center/power forward to back him. Look at how well the Blazers did without him on the court AGAINST THE WIZARDS.

He does have to get the attitude of which you speak. Or the Blazers need to get a player with that attitude to win a championship. But based on pure talent/play. LMA is a superstar. No doubt.

@Legendary_Dork Portland isn't a BIG market team. I think the refs usually blow their whistles for whichever team is being most aggressive. Read in another Thunder blog that KD didn't get his usual foul calls. Stated that there was one instance that wasn't a foul but usually would be called a foul because it was KD. It's not just the market...OFTEN the stars get the foul calls. But usually the star is going toward the basket when this happens. Didn't see much of KD going to the basket during this game.
