    My head hurts just looking at it so I'm gonna take your word for it.
    Incidentally, one time I worked an estimate at Boeing on how much it would cost to make extra circuit boards so we could replace them as they became damaged in the assembly and test phases. I took the word of two hot shots who did the math. concerning a Gaussian curve of probability. I was in a hurry to get my estimate done for a pitch I had to make. Well, the estimate came out to be three Million dollars. Our customer was Boeing Aerospace and their customer was the U.S. Air Force. When I made my pitch, those guys flew off the handle and got the project manager to hold a meeting where he declared that the estimate looked to be about one Million dollars too high and he was only going to pay us two Million dollars. I went back to my desk and reviewed the work these two high ranking engineers did for me and I found a decimal point error. I re-did the calculation and came up with two Million dollars. Yikes, I should have delayed my pitch and reviewed their work.
    I really should review your work but I don't do that sort of thing anymore.

    Going to put this here, didn't think it was thread worthy because training camp hasn't started yet.....
    Went out to the practice facility yesterday for our annual flu shots. Love it, because I usually hang out after and watch the guys scrimmage and catch up with everybody. Said my what ups and went and sat on the bench. Guys were playing full court full speed. I got one word for ya......SKAL!
    Another thing I saw that was very cool was Dame off to the side on court 2 talking with Whiteside. For about 10 minutes Dame was walking him through how he runs his pick and roll situation. It was great to see. Dame is a leader no doubt.

    My problem with Skal is that he tries to play like a guard and doesn't seem to know he's over 7 foot tall. Is he playing D? Blocking shots? Rebounding?
    Also: how about Anfernee?

    It shouldn't be tampering to talk to or about your own players. I understand cracking down on all the free agency deals that were agreed upon before teams were supposed to even talk to players but this is silly.

    Good for Markelle, hope he can get that confidence back and be a productive player and not wash out.

    Well, at least it doesn't look like there was a glitch in the matrix... They do look strange, but heck as long as it goes in, I guess it doesn't matter...

    You need to change your avatar picture, so everytime I see it I'm not like, "aww I want to pet the puppy". heh. So you don't need to but need to give him a Blazer hat and that might be the perfect dog.
