    Loved me some Ayon!

    Bring him back Dell... all a part of your master plan to trade him for Ryno only to team them up again.

    Reverse Layup city!!!!!

    Stiemsma is fine. He blocks a bunch of shots, plays decent post defense, generates steals, rebounds acceptably, can hit from the midrange, and fouls really hard and annoys the other team. Those are most of the things you want from a rotation big.

    And the overpaid thing is is out of control if we're discussing guys on a 1 year contract at the room as overpaid. It's pretty much the smallest non-minimum contract you can offer if you're at the cap. How can that be terrible?

    If you can avoid having an actively terrible minimum big like Ryan Hollins play minutes for for you, I'd pay Stiemsma 5 million. Real talk.

    But yeah, I love Goose. He understands off-ball movement and cutting so well. He has great hands. He is one of the smartest passing big men in the league. Whether it's with us or otherwise, I really hope he gets on a team with quality players, because he's really fun to watch.

    If Goose clears waivers, we can sign him for a nonguaranteed league minimum. We have 13 roster spots already (assuming Roberts and Withey are on the roster). Hopefully #14 is Oden. If Goose comes nonguaranteed, we could have him as #15 and waive him if a spot is needed before January.

    Oden is eating Burger King. I've eaten there too recently! His heart is in New Orleans!
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    His heart is with the Kings!

    It's been a while since I saw the BK King.

    Think they got rid of it because it tested as being too creepy.

    I feel for Oden. He hates the spotlight, and stuff like this is good evidence of why.

    I cant feel for him like that. He loved the attention when he was in college. I read a bunch of magazine articles in high school about him being interviewed when he went to OSU. I think he hates the spotlight because of his knees and media labeling him as a "bust".

    But his knees were out of his control. It's not like he's being labeled a bust because of lack of effort. I feel for him because it must be mentally exhausting to have to deal with that day in and day out.

    Agree'd, i'd like to see a happy ending kind of like what Grant Hill had.
