Hispanic women are like American Indian women-- and similar to new cars.
They may look nice, they may even smell nice-- but they start depreciating the moment you take them off the lot. In most cases, very quickly.

[quote]If Sabonis has anywhere near the athleticism Bender had, he would have been a great center. Very good passer and played well around the basket. He had some Vlade passing skills and a pretty good hook shot if I remember correctly.
Bender was an athletic SF/PF tweener that was well... bad.

The NFL does intense demographic study-- it is no accident that the Bills contracted to play in Toronto, as a good part of their fan base is in that region of Canada.
It is entirely possible that they end up there permanently, depending on who buys them....

A few thoughts from a Timberwolves fan:
1) This is as likely to a decent deal for Love as they are going to get. Its still going to be 65 cents on the dollar, but it is better than the usual 15 cents on the dollar Timberwolves fans have grown accustomed to getting.
2) The Warriors struggled ...

The minutes and miles are piling up, and the Heat ask him to do too much, to expect him to consistently play at his top end on the defensive end of the court.

Same number of titles; superior winning and likely end of career performance arc for Duncan. More years of playing championship basketball.
It probably has to finalize Duncan as the top PF to ever play the game, if there was any inkling of a remaining doubt....
