    John Wall will not be pleased with this Bones.
    LaSoft and Westbrick will be excited and possibly hire you as a PR rep.

    Next year I might do Blazer oriented pre-game videos that are 10 minutes or less. Would be cool to put them in the game thread. I'm gonna try getting hired on somewhere to do something like that.

    You guys, I'm so fucking excited. Tomorrow is my favorite day of the year. Even more than Christmas and I love Christmas. Nothing beats the first day/weekend of the playoffs. GO BLAZERS, WOLVES, SPURS, and WIZARDS!!!!

    Saw that on ESPN or NBA.com....can't remember which. I like how they put Dame right in front of the trophy.

    I think you have to have 7 years experience to ref in the playoffs and 14 years to be eligible to call the NBA finals. At least that's the way it used to be. Holtcamp only has 4 years experience. Plus, the post season refs are chosen based on a combination grades from the league office, accuracy and team ratings. Not sure how Scott Foster got in again.

    It will be weird not seeing Monty McCutchen calling the finals this year. He's worked the last 9 finals.

    Yeah, Monty has a management position now. I saw him ref a Knicks/Jazz game earlier this year and he looked hot in person.

    He has been one of the best NBA refs for the past two decades. I understand why the league promoted him to be the head of referee training and development. It was certainly deserved, but they lost one of their best game officials in the process.

    He seemed to have a really good attitude as a ref before the game started. Talking and laughing with everyone, wanting it to be a good game. I sat really close. That is why I noticed all of this.

    He always seemed to have a very good rapport with the players and coaches. Very approachable and willing to listen. Much less adversarial and defensive than many of the other refs.
