    Excited to see Shaq wanting to help Cousins! Can’t wait to see where Nerlens goes tonight. I always like a draft where we don’t know what’s going to happen. I think Goodwin falls out of the 1st round, but it seems there’s always guys that goes in the 1st round that no one expects. Also, Awful Annoucing just tweeted a link to a ‘pretty bizarre story’ about Dan Dakich.

    Hi to all the folks in Letcher County! Some of my favorite town names to pass through to get to Whitesburg is Flat Mary, Ned, Frozen and Fleming-Neon.
    I think Noel will still go #1 tonight. If not, the Home Depot kid will from IU.

    Does KSR think there aren’t any UK fans in Western KY? The farthest west you guys ever come is the Bowling Green area. There are alot of UK fans out here around the Paducah area where I’m from.

    Matt, can you please explain how Alex Len has moved up so high in the draft? He has talent, sure, but my gosh! I think it’s only his size, not talent. Is that a fair statement?

    For selfish reason, I would like to see Orlando trade for Bledsoe and Noel slide to their #2 pick. If they are going to be bad next year, I want them to do so with Noel, Bledsoe, and Doron Lamb out there…at least then I will feel like I got my season tickets’ worth.

    10:32 am June 27, 2013 Permalink

    I don’t necessarily agree, but the case could be made that Shaq is the poster child for coasting by on your natural abilities rather than putting in the work to make the most of a monstrous physique. For example, take Shaq showing up flabby after summer breaks and focusing (a lot) on things other than his basketball career. Shaq’s not a bad apple (I love him), but I can see the worry that his few flaws as a player are the same flaws that threaten Boogie’s career. I don’t think that would carry over into a mentor relationship, but that’s the source of worry.

    Maybe the Pelicans can package Junior (Austin Rivers) and Vasquez
    and a pick in a package and get Bledsoe. Maybe Doc’s vision
    will be clouded and overcome by his desire to please Mrs. Rivers.

    The interview with that dude yesterday with the guy from the Washington was absolutely stupid! see many forget about johns rookie season…he averaged 17pts, 8 assists. that is better than derrick rose’s rookie season. John should have won ROY that year but they rigged so so blake griffin won. then look at last year. when john came back from injury he was insane and all of a sudden you look up at the standings at the end of the year and washington was 7 to 8 games away from the 8 seed. so you mean to tell me that john walls presence for the first 60ish games wouldnt equate to at least 10-15 wins?. if he plays all year…the wizards make the playoffs and the franchise isnt hesitant at all to give him a max deal. he has gone and hited the trainer that westbrook and rose did and in just 1/2 a year he made crazy strides in his jumper/consistency/turnovers/facilitating ability. he had a stretch where he went for 26,29,33,37,47 point games…..ifanything the tattoos helped lol.

    And Matt, I think you are wrong about guys thinking it’s sexy when girls know about sports. I have had so many of my guy friends tell me that I don’t need to talk sports with a new man that I’m interested in because it intimidates them. No man likes it when a woman knows more about sports than he does. And then when they know that you know what your talking about, they automatically see you as “one of the guys.”
