Development: Phase 2

Now that the draft dust has settled a bit, it seems like a good time to put together a few thoughts regarding the upcoming season. What kind of offense will Nate put in, now that Zach is gone? Who...

Cogent thoughts or Ramblings?

Wow! It's taken me a few days just to get through all the posts and reactions to the draft. I guess I'd better get used to that kind of posting mania now. I thought I'd add to the pile of posts...

O/T Dog movies for Clinton Portis

After reading the article EngineerScotty posted in his diary, I had to vent a long-winded comment. Since that obviously didn't purge the putrecence from my soul, I thought I'd expand on my thought...

12 more days...ARRGH!

I am in limbo; stuck between a season that is over, and a lottery yet to begin. Dogs bark, cats meow, but my Blazer addiction will not be satisfied with mock drafts until the order is set. Even...

The value of picks?

This is one of my favorite times of the season because there is so much going on. Tourney time, playoff positioning, and scouting. Thus the inevitable what if scenarios start flowing. Much as I try...

Martell to the D-League?

Fish or cut bait?

I realize Nate hates the rotation question, but I'm forced to wonder how drastically he's going to adjust things once the trade deadline is past. Jamaal shouldn't be an issue any more, and Travis...
