I thought it was a fun game to watch last night. It is goin to be a tough road out. Our inside game is goin to struggle and our perimeter shooting will not be there very night.

Fun to see Telfair have a good game minus some turnovers. Still waiting for Mac to set Love up on the low block. Bootsy collins should hit the road, the dude is a sloth.

Hope the keep there game face on and don't give up on the season.

Looks like T-pups just got a deal struck with the Kings to send them Mccants and Booth for Shelden Williams and PG Brown. Sounds good to me. We got rid of some dead weight.

You're right it was a fun game to watch, but they're not going to hit 14 threes every night. What's with Mike Miller? The guy was brought in because of his perimeter shooting and he's afraid to shoot. He played 37 minutes last night and took 4 shots.

Kevin Love is developing nicely and is way more confident than a couple months ago. He's going to have to be very crafty around the hoop to keep his shot from getting blocked.

As long as they don't pack it in and they play hard every night, I'll keep watching.

Not sure about that trade. How long does Williams have left on his contract? I think McCants' contract is expiring.

I haven't heard of Williams or Brown, are they any good? I'm glad to see McCants gone though, could never stand him. Reminded me of Starberry's attitude but without the abbility.

Well Sheldon Williams was a higher draft pick out of Duke in 06....I think the 6th pick to the Hawks.....he might be a good addition but it sounds that he might be the same as Mccants but maybe this will spark him to play good....never really heard of Brown but he is a young PG and is scheduled to make 700,000 only next year so it is not a bad deal if he amounts to anything...now if they only can figure out a way to get Hinrich from the Bulls......

How many good ones is the real question. Foye is never going to be a true point guard and I don't want them to start Telfair long term.

Sheldon Williams has the same body as Kevin Love, he's about 6'9"/250 lbs. They really don't need another guy in that Craig Smith or Love mold long term, but they're really hurting for size right now. They started Love at center last night along with Gomes and Miller at the forward spots. Talk about a small lineup...

they have 3 point guards now.....Telfair, Ollie, and Brown.....Foye is a shooting guard playing point cause they didn't have a back-up point when ollie went down

We were dang small, Sheldon won some highly touted defensive awards in college. Hopefully he matches up well in the Pf spot and can get us some blocked shots and some boards.

Well, I'm for anything that got McCan't out of here. Maybe they can stir up a little with a mix up of new guys.

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
