    Brady has to be exonerated.  Where is the proof he did anything, either in the cyberworld or in actual documented PSI ball measurements that were greatly below where they should have been?  If we are more »

    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 »

    Band wagoners who know better than an NBA GM.  Don't let the door hit you.

    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 »

    Honestly, what can he say?  He takes responsibility for where this team is, let's give him credit there.  But there seems to be a trend where the Sox overpay for FA talent (Crawford, Sandoval, Ramirez more »

    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 »

    He's an interesting player, trying to think of a comp but none comes to mind.  A more efficient and under control version of Josh Smith?  Mickey might not be as athletic as Smith but he is an undersiz 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 »

    Seems the Celts have recognised that they have a  2nd round find.  They are trying to lock him up according to Yahoo.  Looks like a guy who can help out now and who could get better.

    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 »

    He's looked solid.  If he can continue to develop his jump shot he could be a very nice find.  Nice upside for a 2nd rounder.  I know it's summer league, but it's an important indicator for a young gu more »

    Coach dad was saying he's a better passer than shooter - which I thought was hype.  Have to say for a guy picked where he was he seems to have a good all-around skill set, including passing.  I've hea more »

    Some thoughts about Marcus after watching him in summer league: I agree that his decision-making is better and he is definitely more of a vocal floor general than he was last year.  He was playing off more »
