As bad or worse is the team being docked a 1st and a 4th for something that a) Belichick and Kraft knew nothing about and b) cannot be proved to even have happened. I know Kraft said he wasn't going more »

In response to PatsEng's comment: it's going to be interesting to see if he gets less than 4 games. You know drag racing, resisting arrest, and getting a 12yr old high is a much less serious offense t more »

Step one on the road to becoming a better player for Sullinger is getting in shape so he can play 32 mpg. Hire a trainer and a nutritionist. Step two is convincing him to stop jacking threes and to more »

Forum Post: "Rival executives aren't convinced that Terry Rozier can be a point guard in the NBA."

I posted this elsewhere, but I feel like Rozier has the tools to be a better combo guard than Bradley because he may be able to give this team legit minutes at the 1. Rozier can get anywhere on the fl more »

Of the comps, Mickey seems to be a blend. He can rebound, he is not offensively inept, he can block shots and he is athletic. Ratliff was a physical specimen but Mickey is better offensively based o more »

Rondo needs to realise that he needs the Kings as much as they need him. He needs to reestablish himself and if he gets his head on straight he could provide leadership to a young, talented team. I more »

Young is, well, still young. A little competition will either bring out the best in him or further relegate him to the end of the bench. I think it's apparent that Hunter has shown more in summer le more »
