    1. I need to call the NBA league office, there’s a major error in the box score from last night’s Mavs-Blazers game. It shows Tyson Chandler as 0-2 , which is impossible for the most efficient scorer in the history of the NBA.

    2. ESPN has a really good article about Thanasis out there. Just makes me feel good that long term development is a priority for this organization with BCT in charge.

    3. @3 – Nice!
      @4 – I saw a tweet that said that either Calderon or Barganani would practice Tuesday. I can’t understand why it was an “or” rather than an “and” or an “and/or”. Still, it looks like Larkin and Shump at the 1 and THJ and JR at the 2.

    4. A certain wealthy internet entrepreneur is continuing to spread his Coleaganda all over the internet.

      Not enough – THIS PERSON may be our last hope to help Cole.

    5. I had a thought the other night while watching Kevin Love do his best Amar’e impression defending the PNR- who’d you rather have- Love or Cousins? As good as Love is, having a four who doesn’t protect the rim at all and compounds it by refusing to rotate out on shooters is pretty tough on a team.

    6. Cousins is having a great start to the seasons. Maybe that FIBA experience got through to him.

      The season is still young though, but if he’s finally pulled his head out of his own ass, he’s gonna be a beast.

    7. Boogs main problems have been turnovers and mediocre efficiency. He’s still TO machine, but his TS is way up. He’s shooting more point blank shots and getting fouled more than in the past, and those are sustainable developments, so he could be making a leap this year

    8. Perkins and Ibaka really freezing out Reggie? There can only be one shoot first pg. I get it that they maybe made at Reggie for playing for a contract but Perkins is an awful player and is probably lucky Scott Brooks is his coach.

    9. @12 — not if you compare Cousins last year to Love’s age 23 season. A good argument can be made that, at the same age, Cousins was better.
