    Seriously though, can we offer him an extension this month? Lock him up for a couple more years. He makes 1.5

    He’ll be a RFA, no? I wouldn’t worry about it.

    By “our” do you mean the western conference all stars because I agree.

    I go to these games because they make season ticket holders buy them, and tonight felt like I was being forced to watch. I don't know how anyone in Phoenix could ever pay to watch that roster.

    So tonight Layman started at SF. He plays best when he starts (i.e summer league) but probably won't start over Harkless. So his best chance for minutes is a backup stretch 4?

    Dame-Curry
    CJ - Nik
    Harkless-ET
    Aminu- Jake
    Nurk-Collins

    Use Meyers against bigger 4's?

    Well he might be starting opening night. I’ll believe Harkless is healthy when I see him on the court.

    Nope, Blazer Broadcasting has nothing to do with that.

    There's not many bigger 4s and even then I'm not worried about getting beat inside by a PF. If Utah want3d to run their offense through clogged Derrick Favors post-ups, then fine by me.

    I like this:

    Lillard (36) / Curry (12)
    McCollum (35) / Curry (13)
    Harkless (25) / Turner (20) / Layman (3)
    Aminu (28) / Layman (15) / Collins (5)
    Nurkic (32) / Collins (16)

    Fun game. Trade Dame & CJ for picks and around Layman with players on the same timeline.

    Funny thing is, the new guys think you are joking around.

    Speaking of which, WEHT Chase Budinger?

    Dana Carvey. Wayne’s World. Wayne and Garth.

    Suns had our number as recently as 2 seasons ago, I believe. They used to always give us trouble.

    It was actually 3 years ago last time we lost to Suns. They beat us back to back.

    Holton was doing radio tonight and the internet says Kent still works for Blazers Broadcasting.

    I went on a business radio show to be interviewed about how my business came to be several years ago. I thought it went okay. When I listened back to it I was cringing the entire time with how many ummmms there were. I didn't feel during the interview that I was like that but I think I said um about 100 times in about 10 minutes.

    I wish I could have that one back, ha ha. I doubt many people heard it though. Talking hoops is a little easier.

    But you guys would have to pump up the team and coaching staff we have and I don't think BonesJones wants to do that. Blazers Broadcasting isn't going to let you bash the coaching staff.
