Assuming Alexander starts at center, how many minutes do you expect him to play? I am not sure how good his conditioning is, particularly if you consider he carries 240+ pounds, plus the foul situation will also come into play. I see him playing around 20 MPG, at least at the start of the season with Mickelson and/or Lucas getting substantial time at Center. Thoughts?
Spot on. Some of the ESPN descriptions can be dated and do not reflect recent progress.
I was not advocating playing at a faster or slower pace, I simply indicated that Mason is capable of playing at a faster pace, although it does not mean that he cannot play at a slow pace if needed. Frankamp's game, on the other hand, is better suited to a slower, more controlled pace and I believe he might have trouble with a faster pace. What pace Coach Self chooses to play might indicate who plays, and in most cases it will depend on who the opponent is.
@globaljaybird Amen! My dad's got like 3 Yankees that I got my eye on. They came in real handy a few times when I was a kid. He just won't turn loose of them yet!
@jaybate-1.0 Any post mentioning a Winchester Model 21 gets an upvote from me! The skin tight camouflage adidas body stocking was just an added bonus!

With just days before the start of training camp, the Minnesota Timberwolves are making a final push to acquire restricted free-agent guard Eric Bledsoe in a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns, sources told ESPN.com.
Fruitless contract talks with the Suns soured point guard Eric Bledsoe's appetite for playing in Phoenix. The Wolves are offering Bledsoe the four-year, $63 million maximum level contract that he has been seeking, sources said, but because of cap restrictions, the only way he can join the team as currently constructed is through a sign-and-trade deal. Bledsoe and the Suns have been in a stalemate all summer after the team offered him a four-year, $48 million deal in July.
@Crimsonorblue22 I don't like them either, but I have to say that " Brooke Sassin " is a pretty cool name. Since I am the master of originality (or not) I'm going to go out on a limb and assume her nickname is " Assassin " .
One thing I have to say about Coach Weis: he is no longer masking that he has no idea which guys can play and which can't.
"Always remember that Bill Walsh was 2-14 once. But only once.”
“Always remember that Bill Self was 6-21 once. But only once.”

“Putting a team on the back of an OAD with a low foundation is like playing Russian Roulette with a 9MM Beretta and a full clip.”
“You can make a shooter take it, but you can’t make him make it.”
“One forearm smash is worth an Urban Dictionary of trash talking.”
“Dunk means never having to say you’re sorry.”
“One way to recognize coaches cheating at recruiting is that they tend to have more talent than coaching skill.”
“It is easier to take the play ground out of a player than it is to take the suburb out of a player.”
“The greatest threat to the current African American dominance of basketball is the African American migration to the suburbs.”
“Big Sports Media and Big Sports Gaming are two sides of the same vig.”
“Slumps are periods of time when everyone knows what you are doing wrong but you.”
I added a News Feeds category and I pulled feeds from cjonline, kusports and wichita eagle, but only the cjonline one worked correctly. I'm reaching out to Gary Bedore about the kusports feed as I believe it should work with a small change on their end, and I'll see what I can do about wichita eagle one. This should be a really nice way of pulling our news from other sites in real time without having to manually do it.
