    Chris Walker tweeted last night that he and Nerlens Noel will “100%” definitely be going to the same school. What’s the chance UK gets these two guys?

    MY TAKE ON THE LOCKOUT

    I think that those in power (owners, media)are going to sacrifice 1-2 years in an attempt to break and force elite players to play over seas. This is sad but practical. With an ever growing emphasis on international business and national borders dissolving in terms of how business/corporations work i think owners/media groups see other countries as a potential untapped market…no amount of advertising would stimulate foreign countries’ interest quite like having nba players play there for a season or 2. To me I think it would be a logical investment strategy to bite the bullet and sacrifice a year or 2 if the end result was an unlocked NBA with a market that doubled or tripled (more tv deals, more merchandise sales etc)….Most of us, working middle class people are willing to invest and wait a few years for a return; would it not make sense for tycoons to do the same from time to time? Its not like they cant afford to survive the drought. And if NBA players were known for saving and planning well with their money then this would be pointless as they SHOULD be able to go decades without working. In reality though im sure that they have silly amounts of $ going out and arent in a position to not get paid for as long as most of us think. Thats what the unemotional intellect within me thinks.
    The fan in me thinks that this is just flat out shameful all across the board. Owners are punishing players for being greedy, but its the owners’ that paid them those ridiculous salaries. I think and hope that something gets worked out and the fan in me thinks that if they do have the audacity to burn a season or more, that we should have the audacity to punish the league by not watching or paying attention to them for a while
    ps…who im sad for most in all of this are the players in their mid-late 30’s who NEED to actively train and play in order to maintain vigor and what not….its sad thinking about guys being forced to bow out cause of this
    ANY CHANCE YOU COULD ADDRESS MY POST?…maybe see what others think? Even if law dog disagrees with me i’d still love to have it put out there. i’ve called the show b4 but never had the luxury of waiting 20 mins to talk to someone. im listening though Take care you all

    Just watched a couple of highlight videos of Coleman on youtube…he has some good inside moves with a soft touch, good stroke of free throws, and he CAN dunk. Not a show stopper but he can get above the rim if he needs to. He’s just not a flashy player; old school.

  55. Question
    11:02 am July 13, 2011 Permalink

    We have to put a team on the court every year. So, how is this “load up” every other year recruiting going to work?

    Parrish was born 1 of triplets….his siblings nursed off of Ma while he nursed off of Pa



  57. Nathan

    it depends on the NBA CBA, if players have to stay 2 years in school than we will only need to Load up every other year.

  60. CatsFanInKnoxville
    11:09 am July 13, 2011 Permalink

    55) It’ll work because the load up years will contain so many that a few will probably come back for the off years like Jones and Lamb did this year. The mass exodus off Wall, Cousins, Bledsoe, and Orton won’t happen often.

    Matt if you would have not stayed there you could actaully leave the hotel if you were not happy with the accomodations, Visa/Mastercard give you i think its 45 mins to 1 hr for the customer to make up their mind on the hotel, , if you leave they will threaten its their policy to not let you out of the hotel charge but that is untrue you can file whats called a chargeback, i would contact my bank and ask them about that because of how much you travel im sure you would need to look it up because if it has happened once im sure it will happen again, call who you bank with and talk to them about what is called a chargeback, if you need me to get the exact rule for you, email me, i work for a credit card processor and deal with these type issues all day

    When I was young, by dad got online and found a cheap 3 ‘bedroom’ place in Myrtle Beach. He rented it. When we got there, it was one big room with 3 beds in it. He just paid for the 1 night, but we didn’t stay there. The next morning he went back to turn in the key. Before he gave it back, he went to the room to make sure that we didn’t leave anything from the few minutes we were there looking at it. Well, it was full of people. They double rented it. I guess the name of the place should have been a clue. Sea Gypsy Inn 🙂
