Anyone watch Gotham yet? I'm taking a cautious approach as my tv schedule has really filled up recently watching crappy shows mostly late at night. I currently have 5-10 shows I actively care about and don't really have room for any more

I like him and think he's very underrated. Like the Ty Lawson of Pf's. Which is ironic since he went to unc as well. He can definitely be your 3rd best guy.

If I were Milwaukee I would probably try to trade Henson to sacremento for McClemmore. It would help both teams, although it might piss off oj mayo

I agree that Perry's basketball skills are more perimeter orientated, however I don't think that makes him a bad PF, just a skinny perimeter PF as opposed to a strong post PF. Both have value

Henderson is a 6'5 Sg that plays for the hornets. Henson is a 6'11 PF that plays for the bucks

I think that drafting high is overrated since you can only afford to pay 3 guys anyway. I think that with Parker, Greek freak and Henson they have 3 legit guys and I still really like mayo, Marshall and sanders

He was good offensively at Sg but that mostly involved standing in the corner and hitting 3's while reggie/KD created skills that aren't exactly Sg specific

Meanwhile he was horrible defensively vs sg's which is ultimately why robes started in front of him

Jason Kidd has full control now and he's a fan of sanders

Side note Milwaukee could be really good (6 seed in the east) if everything works out for them

Pg marshal SG Mayo SF Parker PF Giannis C sanders or maybe have Parker on the bench for Henson

My issue is that serge closes down the paint just by breathing and perk without serge wasn't a great or even a very good rim protector. So essentially our defensive scheme is designed to maximize perks value rather then cover the weakness' of all players on the floor

Sorry I should have explained that. 2-3-4 and 2-3-5 are the positions that teams have their best defensive players eg last year the pacers and spurs both ran a 2-3-5 where the job of the 2 elite defensive wings was to funnel the opposition into the elite shot locking center (hibbert/Duncan)

Miami ran a 2-3-4 where the goal of the wings is to fly around and keep the ball out of the paint and a shotblocking PF guards the best big and bails them out when it doesn't work. Eg 96 bulls

What's most frustrating about this Perk/robes arguement is that in the past few years nba offences have improved and now there are only 2 viable defensive schemes the 2-3-4 and the 2-3-5) to be an elite team just like in football there is the 34 and 43 schemes. Yet okc is trying to archaically run a 2-4-5 scheme that the new spread offense (corner 3's) has been directly designed to take advantage of

Golden state would be this teams biggest issue. We'd actually match up ok against Cleveland and San Antonio in the guards (except no one can guard love/Diaw)

David west is the NBA's mr UFC. He could match up with every physical big man and still be able to guard Boris Diaw and play offense

I think the main issue is that KD can't guard SG's/Swingmen and so having a good defensive wing is imperative to cover that weakness.

I'd personally start Russ, reggie, KD, perry and serge and switch to a zone system where KD + reggie were responsible for one side of the floor, Russ and perry the other with the goal be to funnel opposition wings into serge and stop corner 3's

Then I'd split the bench into 2 seperate 5 man units

1. Reggie morrow Perry KD and serge ( well balanced offensively and defensively)

2. Russ lamb robes nick and Steve ( well balanced both ways)

Then the closing lineup would be matchup based

Russ, KD and serge being the only gaurenteed closers

Pacers+ reggie would have an outside shot at playoffs depending on how you feel about the hawks and bucks

Ugh. Perk has been playing the 4 for the last 3 years. Adams and ibaka are both good enough to cover all 48 center minutes

Royces whole arguement to perks basketball value was vs zbo( a PF). We'd be fine at center without perk. Even KD and perry can play limited minutes there. Along with serge, Adams nick and Mitch that's 6 guys.

I'd take 2 years of David west and a pick as something significant especially as the pacers will be the 2nd worst team in the east this year without reggie

It doesn't make much long term sense but purely from a shortsighted perspective I'd love to trade perk + reggie for David west and a pick/filler

Any week your starting QB and TE (both first and 2nd round picks) combine for less points then reggie bush ( note they might have slightly more but it's close) you probably won't win your fantasy matchup

Just saw an add for the maze runner. That movie is seriously going to test wether I'm more mature then I was 3 years ago. It's going to be a terrible movie but I used to have a massive crush on the female lead, and the male lead has been pretty great in other things too so....

Have my fantasy football lineups set for this week, including favourable RB matchups and a new no1 reciever. So time to step away from the internet and start moving house.

Though since I'm against sniper army this week maybe I should avoid open windows.

We drafted Bledsoe with pick 18 of the cole Aldrich draft which presti got from Miami for taking on d cooks salary. He was then trade to the clippers for a future first, which was traded to Boston as part of the green for perk trade. Boston selected fab melo with the clippers pick I believe

Considering okc drafted Bledsoe trading for him would be unlikely as it would make presti look dumb for trading him the first time

All great change requires sacrifice. If a public figure does the wrong thing, even unintentionally to the point where it instigates major social change. That action will have a consequence and there will be a price to be paid.

Many great Men and women throught history have been unfairly vilified for the greater good.

And anyone who hits a kid probably isn't being treated that unfairly

I think that regardless of someone's upbringing as an adult you are responsible for your actions, and if you are going to be responsible for a minor, then you should learn how to parent appropriately.

As someone who had "poor" parents. I understand how as a person there are some actions you may consider normal and acceptable until you learn otherwise, and education is often all that's required to fix the situation with people who know better , however some actions are unacceptable regardless of perspective/ignorance and there is no excuse for beating a child ever

I don't think it would make much difference, if teachers got paid more money they would be teaching at exclusive university's/private schools that regular people wouldn't be able to afford quality teaching. And the best teachers would be babysitters for brats as opposed to actually helping where they are needed

Caught up on thatsthunderbasketball's central preview. It was mostly well written. Your getting really good man. However I'd rank the teams 3. Bucks, 4. Pistons. 5 pacers.

If OJ Mayo and larry sanders come back in form that is a really dangerous team and could quite easily make the playoffs*

Excuse me as I try to come up with perk to the bucks trades to steal some of their talent.

This Adrian Peterson stuff is only going to get more intense as people in the media start to link it to the death of one of his other children in 2013 due to domestic violence.(committed by another man). Sadly this is just the beginning of horrible situations coming to light. But if society uses this as a learning experience then hopefully it all works out for the best

It would have worked if Phoenix had their shit together with Bledsoe, but until he signs a deal there is no market for reggie. The lakers basically offered Phoenix the deal I suggested they would offer for reggie. So I wasn't that far off. Also I didn't know that Philly was going to go into supertank mode
