    Takes from today:
    Udoka huge loss for those who thought he was better than Chauncey. TBD obviously but keeping an eye on him through the season.

    Spurs don’t worry me but they seem really, really good defensively. They’re gonna be in a lot of close games I think.

    Lakers are ass right now.

    Suns should be a fun game tomorrow.

    Our performance against the kings doesn’t look so bad.

    According to sources, LeBron has requested a trade the the Portland Trail Blazers to play with Damian Lillard.
    - Coming soon, probably.

    Vogel is a good coach, this isn't his fault.

    Anyone hear what the AD/Howard beef was about? I’m guessing it was AD pissed Howard was playing like shit, but must be more.

    The way AD was shooting I would hope he wasn't giving Dwight crap. AD made a dunk and a layup late in the 4th to climb to 33% shooting for the game.

    It's good the Suns won today. They won't be as driven to get a win tomorrow.

    Wizards/Lakers trade looking really bad. I think KCP for Westbrook would’ve been a bad deal for Lakers but all the other guys too? Wouldn’t be surprised if Washington is a top 3 seed and Lakers are back in the play-in.

    Howard was pissed he made the all time top 75 and he didn’t.

    You do understand what "categorically" means right?
    Terry Stotts grew up in Indiana. Of course they called him. He was never really in consideration. My "Sauces" tell me that is because he simply was not interested.

    Now let me add. You are correct. He has been offered a job. Because obviously you feel he has been and this story says he was indeed in consideration. I'm good with that.

    Your original statement said "No team thought he was worth Hiring" then you post a story saying he was a front runner and considered by the Pacers. Which is probably true. He was considered because they thought he would be worth hiring. Problem is he was not interested.
