What are other quality front courts from 1 school playing in the NBA at one time?
Combining both quality & depth[/quote]
Weird question, but how about UCLA in 1980?
Center- Abdul-Jabbar, Walton, Nater
PF- Wicks, Vandeweghe, Greenwood
SF- Marq. Johnson, Wilkes

[quote]Can Portland totally slip out of the playoffs?
Aldridge's 6-8 week injury equates to 20-25 games. They are in big trouble if they are a 500 team (or below) during that span[/quote]
Portland is 18 games over .500 (31-13). Playing .500 ball over 24 games would leave them at 43-25, which is...

That's a shame. I used to listen to Carolla and Burr's podcasts at work when I worked overnights. Both are really good. So are Rogan and Mohr..
Is Carolla any different now? I heard he shook up his show a bit and got a different girl. I haven't listened to him in a couple of months though.. ...

I had to go with him. He has the ability to play 2-3 positions. Has by far the most playoff experience. Is the best defender on the list, so he doesn't have to score to be effective. Has a good reputation as a team guy and is unselfish, so he should fit in without m...

Redskins.. new GM and DC. If RG3 bounces back and they rebuild the offensive line and secondary (they are not shy to spend), they could challenge for the East. They only won 4 games. So if they win 9 or 10, that's a 5-6 game improvement. Hard for other teams to make that big of a leap. ...

They really did a sneaky good job this past summer adding cheap, young talent in Bogdanovic, Karasev, M. Brown and C. Jefferson. They already had Teletovic and Plumlee, so they do have something to build around, especially if a couple of those guys start to exceed expectations.
Like a couple of g...

I think this is a huge blessing for J. Smith. If I were him, I'd shut it down until sometime in March and then see which one of the top 3 seeds need me the most. The only way he makes any extra money now is through playoff pay. Might as well pick the one that is going to make the deepest run and may...
