The new Nike LeBron Banner is scheduled to hit the S-W Global HQ wall on October 30, 2014, the first home game against the Knicks.
(Obviously, NBA GM's are talking prospect. But just think the question is phrased poorly).
There's no chance Mario Hezonja is one of best international players not in the NBA. One of best prospects? Okay. But not current player.

Baseball fans go nuts in the postseason. Just go insane with the pitching stuff.
Why not just pitch Bumgarner every game! Be desperate! Oh, wait, he's strong now because SFGs have kept him on regular rest all year.
Kobe 9 Elite "Victory" Black/Gold/Volt. http://t.co/h1Eed9MH1k

This dude in Bo's mentions' display name is "Lakers (7th seed)." Reach for the stars.
According to ACC bio, Swofford was A.D. at North Carolina from 1980-97. That's interesting.
Good to see Chris Palmer back in the mix, by the way.

Suns wanted an offensive interfereance on that play - not sure Hawes touched it - Suns down 106-103 with 7.8 left and ball - time out
Always liked Gerald Green. Easy to root for.
Did Spencer Hawes get away with a "passing to yourself" travel? Suns thought so - I'd need to see replay

But if the starter gives Bochy less than 6, as Peavy did today, it gets tricky with only 4 guys Bochy can trust. We'll see about #55.
If Bochy gets 6 innings out of his starter, he can maneuver through the last 3 with Affeldt-Lopez-Romo-Casilla and cameos by others...
This only makes Hudson's start Friday more significant. Because he'd also be slated for Game 7.
I think the Giants are still in very solid shape. But Peavy in Game 6 isn't a great prospect and that middle relief is even shakier...
