    Saw recently he is in the G-League. What a weird stretch that was. He had NO resason to get drafted. Very strange.

    GPII and Trendon both scrapped their way from the G league into the NBA ....Elleby might do it in a couple seasons.....hell Alan Crabbe was in the G league last season.

    "a player like that" ok...but it's all fantasy.

    a player like that named Russel Westbrook is being paid 47M...that's reality. You're talking about a fictitious player, and now you're saying I can't point out the reality of Westbrook's contract? Excuse me a moment, Jessica Alba is knocking at my door and she's horny for an old guy exactly like me; my wife is ok with it too

    by the way, if we're busy wishing for fantasy bench players I can probably come up with dozens that are more attractive than Westbrook

    I think he looks like a ninja turtle too, but come on man, we don't have to go after his looks.

    And any one of them you want to wish for is just fine with me as long as they make the team better.

    I am in Miami this week and caught the end of the Heat-Pelican game. Absolute horrible plays were designed by both coaches trying to inbound the ball.
    Pels with a 5-second infraction when they were trying to tie it up, and Miami had to call two timeouts because they had no one open, only to turn it over on try #3.
    And no the defense was not the reason, it was just piss poor play designs. Do coaches not spend time in practice on this? Even the announcers were stunned.

    They were probably just inspired by the Cowboys' last play Sunday.

    This is why it's never good to ever expect wins or losses. Shit happens. Lol

    Yeah it’s a very bad idea to lose Hart.

    Where did you see this rumor?

    I don't see anyone that would even make sense for Portland on the Heat roster (given age, salary, position, etc).
