Garrett Temple signs two-year deal to stay with Wizards - emmanuellewis
Two year deal with the second-year a player option. It has been cool to see Temple carve out a place in the league in DC after the two year run where he was on five different teams. Wizards fan appear pleased based on the comments. Also, check out the video about how Temple (wearing an LSU shirt...

re: Pain and Gain is weird - emmanuellewis
[quote]Should've just given it a generic "based on a true story" instead of literally pausing mid-film to say this is a true story.[/quote] That really has nothing to do with my point.

I thought the movie was okay, not much of a fan. I do agree that the Rock was really good in it. He has surprised me as an actor as a few times. The thing that made me actually hate the movie is: [quote]The most bizarre thing about the movie is that it's a true story.[/quote] I was curious ...

[quote]Wiggins will be much better offensively than George. It's weird how he's gone from overrated to underrated.

[quote]What do most of the posters here think Wiggins' potential is?[/quote] I don't think he will be nearly as good as many evidently do here but I like him.

[quote]You are comparing the OPS of a SS of the 80's to a 3B of the late 90's and early 00s. You are also ignoring the gigantic gap in fielding ability.[/quote] Agree, different positions and eras.

[quote]4 pages, and not once does anyone mention that the stats of HOF players are classified by their position. [/quote] I mentioned it. That is why Jones will sail in and Bagwell is struggling (one reason at least). Third base is a weird position in terms of the HOF. Not as power-laden as corne...

re: NBA Free Agency Thread: Day 21 - emmanuellewis
This is going back a few pages but I think the Pacers are in trouble. Lance will likely go to Dallas (or at least won't be signing for what Indiana has offered). They are probably behind the Bulls, Heat (if Deng signs, probably even if not), and the Cavs, maybe more. Surprised how many teams are ...

re: Official in Morey We Trust Thread - emmanuellewis
I'm not a Rockets fan but I love Morey's strategy. It didn't work but I would want my team to have a GM that is trying to hit home runs instead of playing it safe. If Bosh had signed, they would be title contenders for at least 3 years. It was a great move; the results just didn't work out....
