    I agree with you about Craig. Will be an effective Pro(NBA=no defense), and Gilstrap should go if he is drafted for his family's sake.

    I see this said all the time. Have you watched an NBA game lately? I have tuned into a few this year, and I have been impressed with how aggressive the defense has been. It is amazing to watch some offensive players going off for big numbers, which makes it easy to assume there is no D. From what I have seen, there are amazing shots being made with a hand in the face or guys draped all over the offensive player. The floor is usually spread better, as with the exception of some (i.e. Birdman Anderson for example) who can't shoot, almost all can, even the bigs. Watching some of the better teams' commitment to defense was actually a little refreshing.

    You must not watch NBA games. They play more defense than a lot of college kids anymore

    Yeah, anyone who says the NBA doesn't play D doesn't watch the NBA.

    Since the NBA did away with the no zone - can only double team the ball rules, scoring has fallen off sharply.

    I think Craig will be a better defender once he doesn't have to worry about staying out of foul trouble.

    I would say this pretty much makes it official...

    Do you think hes been worried about foul trouble or is he just not a physical defender?

    Both will end up overseas when it's all said and done.

    I don't think I would call him a physical defender, but he has definitely laid off since the bench got shorter.

    Re: Williams Blog: Scouting report on Jordan Railey

    Does anyone have any idea what his team scores per game? How about what others on his team average? Under 15 points a game for a 6'10" seems a little scary for what we need in the post. (Agian I am from small town Iowa where a kid this size if as athletic as stated would put up 30 a night.) Not his fault either that he isn't going to have time to be brought around slowly. Let's face it our current team doesn't get enough easy buckets wether these are down low or in transition.

    This post has nothing to do with Railey. I like what I'm reading, but am I the only one that saw this:

    "Beaverton is 9-9 and ranked 14th in the Oregon’s 6A Metro class"

    Huh? How many schools are in Oregon's 6A Metro class?

    WHEW, I'm glad we were able to beat out Drake, Portland State and Pacific for this guy!!!


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
