Malik Beasley looks pretty good though which is nice. If they can keep their pick somehow or Edwards turns out to be good he could maybe slot into that third best guy on a championship team role

That may be one of the funniest basketball pictures I’ve ever seen. I also can’t tell if he’s actually concerned or laughing his rear end off.

Fair enough. The still image isn’t always a fair judge of a situation. Still devoid of that info (and hell even with it), it’s making me laugh pretty hard.

Kyle Korver once ate Jaylen Browns lunch at the rim in playoffs so maybe it could work

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.

Shumpert has been a good defender here and there but he has a hard time staying consistent with it. I guess as pickups go that's probably one of the better ones unless some people we don't expect get bought out in a month or two.

That's happened to Korver too and yet that picture is the one that's been shared 12 years later.

Think it was less the embarrassing thing and more not wanting to foul and give him an extra point on top of it since he obviously was not afraid of looking dumb in that situation as evidenced by the picture.

I remember him being a weirdly effective shot blocker in Utah relative to what you'd expect Kyle Korver to be but mostly sneaking up on guys and blocking it from behind.

For years, years I have asked folks better than me at photoshop or whatever to make a gif of Korver that moves from left to right and mirrors frames quickly, so it looks like he does a little elf run.

Why is a Korver elf run not our gang tag?

The worst part about the Mavs sucking right now is that there are people who have been waiting for 2 and a half years to say poo poo about Luka but haven't had a chance to and now they're all coming out of the woodwork.

Smug rear end warriors fans talking about how "Luka needs to learn how to share the ball or he'll never win." Hawks/Kings/Suns fans mad about getting clowned on for the draft. Morons who never thought Luka would do well because he's a slow Euro like Rashad Phillips. And just in general anyone who reflexively hates on anything people are hyping up.

All gunning for a guy who averages 27/9/9.
