    Yeah that was the exact team I had in mind. They are one of the bigger teams. As you alluded to most PF's are not most teams top scorers and if they are....... they often score from the perimeter anyways. But as you said let them take more shots than normal if it means taking the ball out of their better players hands. Plus we are mostly talking about the other teams 2nd unit.

    I cant stand Isaac Ropp if Im honest, he just moans all the freaking time, he basically hates everything but golf and drinking (which hey whatever he wants to do). He has no takes on sports that are worth anything, he just complains constantly. He doesnt even feign interest in ANY of the local teams.

    He is by far the worst part of the afternoon show in my opinion.

    Then again, the highest rated local sports program in Portland for years. I don't see him as being a complainer but he is in stark contrast to many of the Portland 'homers'. He brings up legitimate critiques and calls it like it is. Most big city sports hosts are much more like he is. In Portland, many people may not like it compared to the 'everything is Roses' outlook.....but the ratings say that many more people like his show than not.

    I freaking love Ropp for being honest. But really, I love the chemistry between Ropp and Suke. I won't listen to anything else in the afternoon.

    Nah he doesnt call things like it is, because he doesnt even watch, he admits to it. He has no idea what he’s talking about like 90% of the time. I dont need him to tell me everything is awesome. He watches like 5 Blazer games a year, has no CBA knowledge whatsoever, has no idea what the NBA landscape is like at all. Then decides to give his ‘hot takes’ with no knowledge of the subject he is referencing. It goes way beyond the Blazers though, I find him to be that way about basically everything.

    My experience in larger markets is the talking heads are usually really fiery / passionate and yeah very negative but they dont come off as having no idea what they’re talking about.

    You dont do sports in NY and talk about the yankees unless you have a clue what you’re talking about and Rupp routinely, “calls it like it is”, about subjects he doesnt know...

    For the record even though I dont really like Ropp I find the show ok, a) they dont talk sports a lot lol, b) him and suke and Lynch are a good pairing.

    That's pretty much why I like them. It gives me little sports and lots of silly banter. I can only handle so much sports.
