well i suppose that gives him a head up on vitale then.

Oh yeah, and if the Bulls draft Beasley over Rose it will be the worst draft day disaster since the Blazers drafted Sam Bowie
john paxson, is that you?

honestly though... you could have gone much more recently so that the kids understand what your'e talking about, like, say, tyrus thomas over lamarcus aldridge.

beasley is a beast. he's certainly more NBA ready than kevin durant was last year. the team that passes him by will rue the day.

You honestly don't think there's any chance of Beasley being Glenn Robinson II? Big Dog put up big, big numbers in college and he was an average NBA player.

Oh, and Doug Collins was a TNT broadcaster, so perhaps you meant they should have gone to ESPN, not TNT

There's a pretty good former coach currently doing color commentary for TNT. His last name rhymes with Man Bundy.

Orlando Tragic

He's got some more but I can't remember them. And there are some good ones for baseball too but I can't think of em either. I really like Tampa Bay Double-A's...although that can't be used so well anymore.

Where's poor little Avery Johnson gonna coach?

That video where he inadvertently punches Josh Howard in the nuts is priceless. You can actually see the puffs of smoke coming out of Howard's mouth after the hit.

Just coming into this thread....so, I am wondering if anyone has accused Belicheat of stealing signals from Flip Saunders and providing them to Doc Rivers!? I mean, he was in the second row there...right behind Flip.

Anyway. Go Celtics.

I kind of like Avery Johnson the broadcaster...

Did the Bulls really sign Doug Collins as there coach?

Oh, and you're all wrong. The Bulls went wrong when they first drafted Eddy Curry, then traded Elton Brand for Tyson Chandler. Think about it...Brand is exactly what we are missing, right?

i don't understand your constant glen robinson comparisons... robinson was a 6'6", 6'7" 3, while beasley is a 6'10" 4.

also, you're selling robinson short by saying he was average... he's a career 20 ppg scorer. that's a little better than "average." he wasn't the all time great that many thought he could be, but he was still quite good.

but to the point... could beasley be a bust? sure. so could rose. o.j. mayo could end up being the best player in this draft for all we know. if they were all drafted out of high school, mayo would have gone first, then beasley, then rose.

what i also don't understand is how everyone was soooo in love with kevin durant last year, and here we have a guy who played in the same conference, put up better numbers and has a better NBA ready body... heck, he even played for the same AAU team as durant... yet all of a sudden people question beasley. i don't get it.
