Oregon governor would rather arrest people for not wearing masks than to clear the PSU basketball team for practicing.

Re: Blazers trade for Covington

Blazers not too concerned about Covington's shooting percentage going down recently. The general feeling is that Lillard will bring out the best of any shooter. Evan Turner, Moe Harkless, even Melo were all not considered (and really still aren't) good outside shooters, yet their 3-point percentages...

I like what the Sixers did. Got rid of the Horford contract (and the Horford player). Got rid of Josh Richardson who didn't really seem to fit and didn't seem to be anything particularly well. Picked up two experienced and good shooters in Green and Curry, and even picked up a young project in Ferg...

Blazers have wanted Covington for awhile now. Funny with all the talk about Westbrook and Harden that Covington was the first to leave the Rockets' dumpster fire. Why didn't they draft him coming out of college or sign him as a free agent.He could have been a impact player for them when he is on of...

Re: 2020 NBA Draft

A draft class with 5 All-Stars is generally considered a "good" draft. Most of the kids will be some sort of role players with one or two really good years in the league. And some will wash away. Sadly, past drafts are littered with "can't-miss" players who, for one reason or another, missed, either...

Re: 2020 NBA Draft
