Wolves should get this guy: Jaycee Carroll, plays in Madrid

Interesting story in its own right, but particularly for the Wolves. This guy played at Utah State, has been kicking around Europe. He shoots over 40% on threes, runs off of screens and curls,...

On JJ and AK -- and Radar and Boogeyman

It was amazing to see JJ sink those high-arcing three pointers vs OKC. It's like he's so short, he's got to put some really high arc on the shots to get over the defender -- but they go in, and it...

A definite 2nd round draft pick

2

We gotta get one of these. This article claims to have examined bigfoot DNA. It is a humanoid cross between an ancient giant ape species and a human woman, about 15000 years ago. They have evolved since. They are 8 feet tall. They are stronger than DeMarcus Cousins, but maybe not stronger than Pek. It is definitely worth a 2nd rounder or a FA signing. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/27/bigfoot-dna-proves-creature-exists-genetic_n_2199984.html

Portland to blame for Roy's injuries? Partly!

A guess on Glen's new owner

Interesting to see tweets from media types today that Glen has a potential buyer for the team, and the buyer is not from Minnesota. The rumor has advanced from the "this might be the case" category...

Boston courting Lee

2

Looks like Boston wants Lee. Why don't players want to stay there??? A pull quote: The Celtics don't have the salary-cap space to sign Lee outright, but... Rockets have let it be known that they're willing to participate in sign-and-trade deals with both Marcus Camby and Lee amid the increasing likelihood that neither of those coveted free agents will be returning to Houston.

Kyrie Irving as Uncle Drew -- Pepsi ad

7

Wow is this cool. Kyrie Irving gets dressed up & made up as an old fart talking about old school basketball. Goes to a court in NJ with his 'nephew', gets into the game and schools the young guys in how to play the game. Really well done ad by Pepsi, intended to go viral (I'm betting), and they do such a good job of it that I'll help it along. Wonderful way to use media in the post-TV brand-building era.

Food for thought? -- no, drink for thought

To occupy the mind (a potential new movement?), there is a piece on Huffpost about the world beer championships. I can't begin to tell you the winners, because there are three medals awarded in each of 95 categories (yep, 95). Something for everyone. Even Coors Light gets an award (sparkling water category?). But most go to craft beer brewers, including one to Summit Brewing. What amazes me is the sheer number of categories -- and how similar they are, at least to my experience. Might be an interesting way to spend some time while we wait for the draft & open season on FAs.

Rajon posts historic line: 18 points 20 assts 17 rebounds Only comparables are Oscar Robertson and Wilt... Amazing. I'm guessing Rubio will enter that club too, but not for another 3 years.

OK, another game went by without a recipe, and we lost. After a recipe post and a win in the previous game. I'm thinking if we had a recipe post on Monday, it might have tipped the balance, so here...

Trouble with Cousins in Sactown: Marc Stein. Here is what Stein has to say on ESPN insider: "Word is that handling rookie forward DeMarcus Cousins is proving to be an even bigger job for coach Paul Westphal and his staff than expected, even after the Kings hired Cousins' high school coach (Otis Hughley) in hopes of keeping the 20-year-old -- freshly relegated to a bench role -- plugged in. One source close to the situation told ESPN.com that Cousins was fined recently for clashing with members of Westphal's staff. I've also been advised that it's not one-and-done as far as such clashes go, which has created a level of tension that -- anticipated or not -- obviously isn't what the Kings need when they're already operating at such an experience deficit on top of their serious defensive frailties." In other news, James Anderson is out for up to 2 months with a stress fracture in his foot. Maybe we did ok in the draft after all.

Another dumb trade idea...

OK, I've read of several trade ideas that are worthy of getting Mr. Kahn fired if he even whispered them to himself while sitting on the john. So with the bar so low, I reckon I can submit an idea...
