Fratello right for sayin that MEM being better w/o Gay isn't an indictment on Rudy. MEM built around Gasol+Zach; they gotta get touches etc
The blinders worn by 'some' hockey fans and ignorance of other sports is wild.
The Jays 1st (5 runs helped by 2 errors and 2 broken-bat hits) is exhibit A for the 'it all balances out' school of baseball analysis.

From Bodog, Kansas is No. 2 fav to win NCAA title, at 11-2. Kentucky is fav, 5-1.

Re: Raptors declining to make decision on Colangelo today — he is in Chicago for draft camp. Awkward timing (that they could have avoided).
Seven of the eight teams remaining in the NBA have a near-perfect clarity of philosophy. Also, the Knicks are still alive.
I feel like the Raptors and MLSE brass are gonna wake up on Oct 1 and realize that they forgot to make a call on Colangelo’s future.
Not expecting anything definitive on Bryan Colangelo today. You can safely cut your lawn Raptors fans.
He chose 'free' in Lawrence, Kansas over multi-millions and living in Barcelona. Are you sure he's in a rush to get drafted by Charlotte?
Let's all talk about the part of the third book of Game of Thrones I just read, without talking about spoilers that are only spoilers for me

Granted, he has averaged only 2 FGA per game during this span...but ...Jason Kidd has not scored a single point in 8-straight games for NY
Does anyone know Sergio Santos' surgery/9 ratio? Need it for a pool I'm in ...
And yes, I know I screwed up Beasley going to Kansas State, not Kansas. Being corrected. Thanks to all that sent it to me.
Congrats to Valanciunas on All Rookie Team (2nd) honors
Congrats to Jonas Valanciunas for being selected to NBA All-Rookie team. Well deserved...
Raps Valanciunas on 2nd NBA all-rook team; Lillard, Davis, Beal, Waiters, Barnes on 1st. MKG, Drummond, Zeller, Singler on 2nd.
Valanciunas got 6 first-team votes. Drummond got 10, Barnes got 18 as final member of 1st team
Jonas Valanciunas is voted second-team all-rookie. Lillard, Beal, Davis, Waiters and Barnes are first-team.
Real upside for Wiggins family will be when Marita sells her secrets for how Mom of 6 still looks like she could rip off a low 50sec 400m
Great for Kansas on Wiggins news; school likely to earn big bucks it won't/can't share with the guy making it for them; love the NCAA
"I'm very happy and proud of his decision,” Nick Wiggins said, pointing out Lawrence is only two hours away from Wichita.
"I feel like Kansas is a great decision for Andrew. Bill Self is a great coach and a proven winner," brother Nick Wiggins told Toronto Sun.
Some not so bright college hoops fans attacking Wiggins now. Some went after @AB15__ when he picked UNLV, don't think they didn't notice.
Great line in Kansas City Star by Rustin Todd: Wiggins instantly becomes the highest profile Canadian at Kansas since James Naismith.
Also, for what it's worth: Kansas was the one Adidas school of the 'Final Four' ... and it might be worth a lot :)
It will be interesting to see if Andrew's father Mitch is offered a job with KU staff; has been rumoured.
Another interesting aspect to KU choice by Wiggins: most geographically removed of possible choices; he'll need to be a bit more independant
Very, very interesting. Given how much Nike surely will be willing to pay Wiggins, shocked he went with an Adidas school.
Holy crap, Kansas it is. Should have stuck with that pick
I know this is controversial, but I am guessing that Andrew Wiggins will attend [irrelevant].
UNC makes the most sense to me for Andrew Wiggins although the World Wide Wes connection makes Kentucky a contender.
Like MANY others, I'm predicting Wiggins will announce he's heading to Florida State (given connections w/ his Mom & Dad). But who knows!
