Last conversation I got from you was on June 13th. Nothing after that. other than today. Like I said, my box was full so its possible that they just went into hyperspace somewhere. Anyway, we're back on track. Enjoy your week in Las Vegas. I'm jealous!
Good talking to you today.
How is BSG going?
Let me know if you see any of these conversations.
Sorry to get back to you so late. What did you think of the draft. I thought it turned out pretty good. Once we knew that the Kings wern't targeting a SF, I figured it would probably be Fredette. I just didn't see them taking Walker. Hope all is well with you guys. If not before, I'll see you for the next NCAA tourney. Kentucky should be good again this year, and you guy Taylor is back. So is Jenkins I believe. Maybe we can get together for some games... Anyway, stay in touch...
Well, it looks as if I won't be able to do anything for the draft.
We're going to be celebrating Father's day that weekend, so Nicole's parents are coming up that Friday and will be staying with us for the weekend.
So, I guess we'll just have to see what happens with summer league, and if it doesn't take place, perhaps we can set up something for later in the summer.
Surprised Bricky didn't include you. I put you at the top of my list of recomendations. Oh well, his loss. Your certainly welcome here. Don't know if I can make it up there or not. I'll have to run it by the general and see what she thinks. Congrats to Dallas. I had a bet with my friend in Mulege. He had Miami in seven, and I had Dallas in six. He owes me two lobster taco's.. What made it even sweeter, is that he laughed at me when I said Dallas was playing the best team ball and that they would win. Its all about unselfish team basketball..
Jimmer impressing folks so far. Not a surprise to me. I think it comes down to either Leonard or Jimmer. I don't see the Kings going for Walker. He's just not as good a fit as Jimmer. Weak outside shot, and the rest of his game is too similar to Tyreke's. A lot of poker being played right now.
Hope summer league happens, but its looking unlikely at the moment.. Mas Tarde!
As far as summer league, hopefully we'll hear something in the next week in regards to whether or not it's taking place. And if it doesn't happen we'll have to get together sometime this summer. As far as the draft goes, it would be great to get together for it. It's on a Thursday, so maybe I'll see if I can work something out to get that Friday off and maybe head out there, or of course you're always welcome to come out here for that weekend.
As to BSG, I hope that you have a fantastic time watching it. I'm glad you were able to secure all four seasons. You'll have to let me know what you think as the seasons progress.
Talk to you soon
Heya, was out of town all weekend.
Left Thursday afternoon (so didn't watch the game and stayed off the internet so that I wouldn't find out what happened), so I just got back home, watched the Thursday game then today's game, and now looking at things online for a bit.
I'll catch up on the forums and things in regards to the workouts tomorrow and then let you know what I'm thinking, but as of Thursday it seemed as if Petrie was looking at a guard for the 7 spot, which makes me think that he knows what he's going to do for the SF spot. But I'll see if I still think that way after catching up on what's been going on the last few days.
I didn't anything from Bricklayer as far as a project. I do remember last year he wanted people to do some in-depth stuff on a lot of the potential prospects, but that seemed to fall through last year.
Well, I finally read all the messages that were cleverly hidden in plain sight. Bummer about the lottery. I think it needs to be changed to where only the 5 worse teams are in it. That way if your 5th, you can't end up any worse than 5th. I've downloaded season 1, season 2, and season 3. I checked the first episode of season 2, and it does start exactly where season 1 ended. So I know I have that one right. So the only one I don't have is season 4. Its next on my list. I have my entertainment for the summer all ready to go.
Now that we know where were picking, I can start going back over my notes for a little review. I still think we can get a good player at 7. Just a matter of doing our homework. I'm still going to hope for summerleague. Anyway, I'll catch you later, and now that I know where your sending the messages I'll make sure to check in the future. Mas tarde! or later!
Well tomorrow is the big day.
It's been devastating the last two years, with how the lottery has played out, and I've felt ill afterwards in both years.
The fact that we were able to come out of the drafts with Evans and Cousins is almost a miracle, but I really do think we're due some good luck.
We are nowhere nearly as desparate for talent this year as we have the last two years, but having the ability to draft a star will only make things easier going forward, so that's what I'm hoping will happen.
Let's get that #1 pick with our last chance in the lottery for the next decade!
As to the draft, I'll just be glad once the lottery is over and the combine is completed, so we can hone our speculation to things which could actually be relevent.
I'm to the point that the perfect offseason for me would be:
1.) Re-sign Dalembert
2.) Re-sign Thorton
3.) Win Lotty and Draft Derrick Williams
4.) Trade for AI.
5.) Westphal not tinker with the line-up. Insert AI as SF, with Udrih, Thompson, Williams heavy bench players and Whiteside getting 10-15 minutes a game.
I'm really bummed about Barnes, especially if we end up with the 3rd or 4th pick and find ourselves having to make some hard choices. Barnes would have been great for this team. But I do agree with you that with these guys pulling out, it will make next year stronger, which will push some more talent our way as we have to pick someone from outside the lottery. So we'll see.
