Re: Iowa State?

Between Minnesota, Iowa State, Kansas, Indiana, & Utah (likely openings)-- I think it's VERY likely Smith is gone. Good grief!!! Based on speculation by sports writers whose job is to stir up speculation, we have determined that he is VERY likely gone? We are a paranoid bunch. I don't know how he f...

Re: Holy Utah Jazz

I'd rather see them rest guys as needed towards the end of the season than push for 60, if that's the choice. Especially once the 1 seed is locked up. Agreed, I’m very against chasing a target number of wins. If they get to a point where it feels like the one seed is locked in, I really hope they p...

Just one comment. You said your preference was for Fonz to take less threes. I like the number of threes he is taking and wouldn’t mind him putting up 1 or 2 more. On the other hand, I really wish Bean would stop shooting 3’s altogether. He is better off looking for a block, or steal, or rebound, o...
