  1. Brook Lopez, Kyle Korver, Keith Van Horn, Kirk Hinrich, Mike Miller, David Lee, Birdman, Kelly Olynyk all deserve mention in the white guy conversation. Pretty crappy lost.
  2. Anybody can have anything in my cabinet to any degree desired as long as they aren’t drinking it like a clown. I hate ordering a martini and then the bartender asking gin or vodka. If I wanted a vodka martini I would ask for it. I hate an old fashioned with ice and a cherry in it. I hate when someone is mixing drinks and they think it is cute to make them too strong. I’m not generally trying to get hammered on 2 drinks. Use a freaking shot glass or jigger and keep the proportions correct. This is a marathon not a sprint.
  3. I get that watching those old Texas teams is an awesome display of preparation, defense, talent and development. The problem is that if you watch VCU from Shaka’a tenure there and especially the deep tourney runs, they looked great too. He just completely changed his identity once he got here. I will never understand it.
  4. Denver never would have happened in a normal year. Upsets are so much easier in the bubble without the crowd and subsequent Ref home calls. BS hack by Beverly there.
  5. Denver has the makings of a dynasty. Jokic is a legit MVP candidate. Murray is looking like Kobe 2.0. There are solid role players like Gary Harris, Jerami Grant and Paul Milsap. Then you have Michael Porter who might be the most talented player on the roster and he is barely making an impact yet. Everybody is on long term contracts. Even Bol Bol may make a contribution someday. Imagine if Denver hadn’t traded Donovan Mitchel on draft night in 2017 for basically nothing.
  6. Have you considered not telling your company? Regarding all-inclusives, you might try finding a high end non-all inclusive place you like and then seeing if they will give you an unadvertised all-inclusive deal. We did that at the Andaz Playa Papagayo in Costa Rica. It is a great hotel with fantastic food. In fact just typing this made me think about their beef carpaccio and chicken chimichurri and literally start drooling. Their top restaurant is definitely 5-star. You might be able to arrange something like this at the Andaz in Maui. It probably won’t be cheap.
  7. As posted on this thread, we bought our house back in late May. We got a jumbo loan at 3.625%, but now that our other house has sold, I'm thinking it would be a good idea to put a little more down and get it to a conventional loan. That said, our original lender is saying we need six months to refinance. Wondering if that is actually the case and what my options are. Also whether rates are low enough that it would be a good idea.
  8. I liked Parasite better, but agree Once Upon a Time was the best of the year.
  9. That finish was the most excited I have been about a sporting event in a while.
  10. This OKC team is making me actually like Chris Paul for the first time in his career. They have serious heart and are a well constructed team. It will be fun to watch what they do with all those picks.
  11. Reminds me of 7th grade girls basketball. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Scoring is the most overrated stat by far. Paul George scores a lot more than Draymond because he takes a ton more shots. PG13 is a better scorer but he wouldn’t get 28 PPG playing for the Warriors.
  13. Prime Draymond: 14.0 pts, 9.5 reb, 7.4 ast, 1.4 stl, 1.5 blk, 1.2 3s, 0.551 eFG%, 3.2 TO ... NBA DPOY, 2nd team all NBA, 7th MVP voting Prime PG13: 28.0 pts, 8.2 reb, 4.1 ast, 2.2 stl, 0.4 blk, 3.8 3s, 0.529 eFG%, 2.7 TO ... 1st team all NBA, 1st team Def, 3rd MVP voting To me the 7.4 assists from Draymond are what stands out. Also the fact that he doesn’t dominate the ball. I would much rather ply with him honestly. I hate playing with ball dominant perimeter players. Both are great players.
