    Come on, cup. I know you know you're being contrary just to be contrary. I've accepted you, but this no-personal-growth stance sucks. @hoopsjock has always been fair to you back to the Oregonlive days and he's always been open to debate. I think it's a shame you can't see it.

    You don't know the whole story. Might be best if you just let it be as hoopsjock isn't as innocent as you think. I had no problems with him at Olive. Can't say the same thing in this forum. You and HC apparently have issues and i stayed out of it as i figured it was up to you two, not me. Fair enough?

    I'm so glad all the Oregon Live drama has come over to this forum. No wonder it still exists.

    I love me some @hoopsjock, what you mean issues? But I like you too. I do pushback against your rigidness from time to time because I feel like you read posts to nitpick them. Like you ignore or miss the meaning sometimes and I'm not sure if it's on purpose or not. Anyhow, I've known you on here long enough to know nothing I say is going to change anything. But like I said above, I just think it's a shame.

    Marvin is going to MIL, per all reports/speculation.

    Call me crazy, I also think that a guy you can throw on the floor as a stopper who won’t do a lick of offense has a bit of use in the playoffs. Especially at the 3. We will have bigs when Zach/Nurk come back. We still have a hole at the 3 unless you think Nasir or Trent’s there for the long haul.

    I mean, I know it’s a weird night, but super Mario played 27 minutes for us at the 3-ish last night.

    Like i said, you don't know the whole story. Not really sure why you are trying to get in the middle. He has put me on ignore and says he won't respond to me and that's fine with me as it really doesn't bother me. I honestly have no issue with him except for when he loses composure and goes into a rant of expletives. I try and keep myself in a positive mindset. Lots of negativity in this forum.

    Ahem, Ariza changes that scenario if he isn't tossed early. And Hood presumably returns at some point, even if Ariza isn't in the long-term plans.

    Well to be fair, we only had 2 players on the bench the whole second half and the other was a very green rookie. . We also wouldn't have been able to pick up anyone before the game even if the desire was to add a player once they clear waivers. I wouldn't see that as being the norm and it will be great experience for Trent and Little to see playoff playing time if we make it as that will be valuable experience to learn from.

    lol, well drama has been here well before OLive was shut down as I joined in 2009 but didn't participate much as this place was even more controversial that Olive at times.

    i was talking just this year wrt buyout, so I’m not counting on Hood at all. Though I like him a lot and was crushed thst it was an Achilles.

    I'm expecting Little to get 10-15 minutes there, and Trent to maybe slide to the 3 for a few minutes a game. 25-30 mpg a piece for the others doesn't seem unreasonable.

    I just added Hood in in case your comment was pointing to beyond this year, since you mentioned the long haul.

    So did you get a burger and fries, or a hooker?

    You misunderstood me. I mentioned you and H.C. not hoopsjock as far as having issues.
