And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

I finally got my schedule together and it's ugly and not very appealing. Last year I was lucky and a lot of the prospects were playing each other in big games, but this year, not so much.

Anyway while I was putting this together I was watching a tape delay of Tony Carr, wasn't really scouting him but I'm worried about the depth of this draft if he's really a borderline first round prospect.

E: I guess now I need to figure out how to watch Donic

If you could take a look at Waters out of LSU and let me know where on the scale of late first, early /late second, undrafted but on the short list of call ups, to "sorry, bro". That would be great.

He's a short pg that is putting up lots of steals, assists, and points on a surprisingly decent LSU team.

If you meet the Buddha in the lane, feed him the ball.

Is it just me or does Luka Doncic have huge floppy feet and whenever he moves it looks like he's not nimble at all because of it

He's got bad posture, so he gets almost no sink or power from his butt and hips, so he has to thud his knees, ankles, feet to move. It really worries me injury wise. The awkwardness seemingly does help him get around defenders, ala ginobli, but ginobli has spent half of his NBA career not playing.

Hey, you want a toothpick?


I should root for local guys, but I'm really not digging Trae Young. I've never seen so many bad shots.

Shot selection should be the easiest thing for an NBA coaching staff to fix

His good shots, good lord
