JD 6/16: Welcome to my Junk Drawer!! School's Out Edition!!

Jazz poisoned MJ?


From True Hoop: Supposedly Jazz fans poisoned MJ with a tainted pizza prior to the "Flu Game". Prediction: Sammymohawk swears it is true...advanced stats guys and laker fans don't believe

Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune talks Batum from Minnesota perspective


"Given all that has transpired between the teams, expect the Blazers to wait until late before doing so, just to delay the Wolves further in the free-agency market until then." ^^Haha yeah...Olshey's only reason for waiting the entire 72 is to torque up Kahn and company ....I don't think so ...this is just a happy by-product

We need a new one of these ...the old one is about to drop of the face of the earth. Additionally the old one is way full. Additional to the other additional, the old one is old. So that being said...

Jaynes Still thinks PA selling the team


"With all that's gone on with this team over the years, I've NEVER seen him deny ANYTHING this fully and completely -- which seems strange to me.......It's almost as if this is being denied too much"

World Peace suspended ...and Ron Artest got banned 7 games too


Haha....Mike Brown isn't buying it "Brown said World Peace gave him the same explanation of the elbow as an excited accident. "What am I supposed to do, call him a liar?" Brown asked. "He said it was accidental. Now was it accidental or not? I don't know." Kobe seems skeptical as well "It's hard to get into a guy's head and know exactly what happened in that situation," Bryant said. "I haven't really spoken to him about it. You've really got to ask him." To me 7 games seems kinda light ...but since the league didn't wimp out and make the suspensions only effect regular season games (as I half way expected), I guess it is OK.

True Hoop: Does Tanking Even Work?


Henry weighs in with a very long piece. He hits some of the same threads I have about tanking (the strategy...not the losing mentality part of it). Essentially the idea that once you give into losing ....it is difficult ..really difficult...to get out. Here are a few quotes "Tanking, as a way to get good, is not tried and true. It is tried and tried and tried and tried and once-in-a-long-while kind of true." and this this nugget on getting back out of the losing quick sand "Does more time help? Not much. Win 34 games or fewer in any season, according to Arturo Galletti at The Wages of Wins, and over the next decade your chances of winning more than 55 are abysmal, at just 12 percent." Ok ...the usual suspects are now welcome to rip into me for the 4th or 5th time

True Hoop: Tanking hurts fans


As you can tell by the title, this is another artcle regarding an ongoing topic on TrueHoop (and Bedge, as well as other sites). There are some very interesting quotes in the article. This one is particularly interesting to me since I made a similar point in one of the previous tanking threads (of course i wasn't taken seriously, but what else is new) . "It's utter misery. On a deeper level, I wonder if it's conditioning me further, perhaps subconsciously. Have I become more cynical? Less hopeful? More at risk for depression?" And this one too is a point I have repeatedly made on the subject "But as Strauss and Swanson can testify, tanking is heartbreaking -- and it offers no guarantees that things will get better."
