    I also think it's crazy to call donuts "food."

    Well Meyers has blocked more people on twitter in one year then Whiteside could in a career.

    Blocked by Meyers. Never blocked by Hassan. I assume that Meyers is better at this.

    My buddies and I saw Whiteside walking around downtown yesterday during lunch time. Dude seems genuinely happy to be here. Hopefully that continues after the honeymoon period.

    It’s really interesting how the course of the franchise would have changed if Hassan signed that contract. A lot of us were debating at the time whether a guy like Whiteside or Howard would be worth the gamble. Eventually we pivoted to Parsons and then to Turner, blegh.

    Signing Whiteside would have meant that Turner would never be a Blazer. We would have also had to renounce one of Meyers/Harkless/Crabbe, probably Meyers since we also had Plumlee at the time, and paying a 3rd center 10M per year would have been crazy. No Nurkic either, and Plumlee would have eventually been moved for something else. Just a lot of interesting scenarios.

    I keep wondering what Plan A was this summer. If Kanter had said yes, Hood wouldn't be on the squad. Who were the other targets for the ending contracts of Moe and Meyers?

    Thanks for the post!

    Neil; back in salesman mode....

    However, Whiteside saying "he's excited because we've got two guards, that you have to guard, when they get out of their car in the parking lot.".

    Lmao. Funny shit right there.... True, but funny.

    Whate
    The obvious answer (to me) would be a player who plays or can play small forward.
