You're right the #2 for Ingram was probably too much to give up, but that said I think they still have to trade him so not sure what they can get for him at this point.
Draft night was super boring for me, I loved the trade for Hill but also still kind of wanted one or two of the players I talked myself into thinking were good around the 12 spot. Overall I'd trade the 12 for hill any day of the week, even if he's only a one year rental he'll get us into the playoffs this year and that alone is worth it. We picked up the next Millsap in the second round, Joel Bolomboy a local Weber State kid highly athletic with his hustle button broken in the on position. He's gonna struggle to make the team if we sign another stretch 4, but if not he'll take Trevor Booker's spot as the 5th big.
Thought the Celtics wasted their haul of picks, Ainge is smarter than me, but Brown at 3? Really? Why not just take Dunn and force Philly/Minny/Chicago to deal with you for the guy they want, taking the guy you could have gotten at 9 was not smart at 3 when you waited 4 years for that pick to come to fruition. Suns won the draft, Bender and Chriss, if they develop could be two of the best players in the draft. But it's Phoenix, so Sarver and Co. will find a way to fuck this up. Jamal Murray was my favorite prospect out of the not top 2, Nuggers got him at 7 is a solid pick. Spurs get the steal of the draft, again. How come no matter who they pick I always assume its an upcoming allstar. Liked the 76ers draft a lot, Luwawu is iff to me I don't know much about him, but I did like Korkmaz so late in the first. He'll be a draft and stash but could be the best shooter in the draft, I wanted the Jazz to buy back into the first round to get him. Apparently they tried, but couldn't get it done.
Orlando Magic - relegate these fools please. They traded Oladipo, Harris, and the 11th pick (Sabonis) to rent Serge Ibaka for a year. Did they not watch Ibaka this year? The dude is already a shell of what he used to be. For the last two years I had to hear how the Jazz and Magic were these two up and coming good young teams, it always bugged me we got grouped with the Magic, and now I know why, such a dumb organization. EDIT All that said I know Jack Shit about the draft so I'm probably wrong about it all. Facebook has reminded me of these awesome quotes from me during draft time in years past. "This is a terrible draft, in most years Kawhi Leonard wouldn't be a first round pick let alone a lottery pick." "Utah got Enes Kanter at 3, and Alec Burks! Enes Kanter is a future multi-time all star and will carry this team to the playoffs! He would have easily been the #1 pick had he been allowed to play at Kentucky!"
" Jazz trade up to the #2 or 3 and get Evan Turner or Derrick Favors.  Jazz stay at #9 and land Greg Monroe.  Jazz trade down to the #16&23 and land Xavier Henry or Paul George with the #16, and Daniel Orton or Hassan Whiteside with the #23."
Okay so I got half of those right, Favors = Great, Turner not so much. Paul George is awesome, but is Xavier Henry in the league still? Orton and Whiteside, one more heavy miss there too!
I hate that just because they lost to the second best player of all time, that people will hate on the 73-9 as if it is a joke, or that Steph's regular season unanimous MVP wasn't warranted, etc. Curry and the Warriors put together one of the single most entertaining seasons sports has ever seen..... but they didn't win the championship. I hate it but you have to include that at the end. A friend of mine is a Pats and Warriors fan, he's new to the country and lives in the bay area so I'll give him a break. He described it best, its like taking a 10/10 smokeshow home from the bar, you go down on her for an hour, but when it's your turn she gets up and leaves. Yeah you got some, but you didn't get yours. Anyways I thought it was funny.
I think Cleveland has to trade Love, but I don't think they can trade Kyrie anymore so I think the Melo/CP3 rumor dies. I don't think LeBron ever leaves Cleveland again. I called the Miami signing and the Cleveland return, so I'm pretty serious business. Would Love to the Lakers for 2 and Julius Randle work or has Love tanked his own value too hard?
We received a donation of 35$ from an anonymous homie. I don't NEED anymore, but of you're willing and want to pitch in to keep this glorified archive up, let me know and I'll pm you my PayPal, or venmo.
Ewan McGregor is going to play two brothers, but not twins. http://deadline.com/2016/05/ewan-mcgregor-cast-lead-fargo-fx-1201760430/ I love this show and season 2 of Better Call Saul and season 2 of Fear The Walking Dead makes me realize how hard and rare it is to make a great show two years in a row. I've got high expectations for this show moving forward, Ewan McGregor is a fucking amazing casting choice.
I was pretty sure last year was the last year. This year I considered just letting the hosting/domain just expire, but today was the last day and I flinched. Total is 75$, 50 for hosting, 22 for domain, 3 for me rounding up. Also another 25 could be used to renew our ibp license, but its been without a license for a couple months now and spam hasn't been a problem. if you're willing to donate let me know and I'll PM you my paypal address, if not its cool I don't blame you.
Now that I've slept on it let me add an asterisk to the statement that I loved every moment of it. I did, but it didn't click until episode 3 during Laurie Metcalf's monologue. It was so different and weird, but heavy and incredibly acted I just got hooked. But by the end I was so immersed in the story even the very beginnings where I wasn't fully invested felt perfect in retrospect. No matter what, if you start it just make yourself finish it. It's so worth it. The ending is perfect.
This was soooooo good. I loved every fucking moment of this series, loved the format and the pace and the dialogue and the play feel, everything. Louis CK is submitting it to the Emmys as a Drama. There's no way the show wins without the money backing from a studio but it is totally deserving.
Anybody still watch this? The way they played off Jemmas trip to the other planet was great, and her relationship with the spaceman then back to Fitz was great, or maybe it wasn't and I'm just too attached to them to ever dislike their story. Ward is finally less boring, but I'm assuming he'll be done at the end of this season. I'm betting Lash takes him out somehow, maybe he saves Agent Mae from Ward's "It" character. I HATE the idea of spinning off Bobbi/Hunter into their own show, they were great characters on this show as an ensemble cast but I don't think they can carry their own show. So they made one show worse to make a show that won't be good enough to survive. Also the way they were written off seems pretty final so if that show flops there's no reasonable way to bring them back. I hope I'm wrong and Marvel's Most Wanted kicks ass, would be cool if they could go Hard R on a series, but I'm holding hope that Punisher gets his own series. Also Chloe Bennett's Skye/Daisy is the worst character on the show. She and Electroboy are just flat boring. That said Chloe Bennett is so unreasonablely hot, she better never leave the show. http://imgur.com/a/dFbGo
