For 3-4 summers straight I swam, played on 2 baseball teams, and 2 basketball teams and it was some of the most fun of my life.
Admittedly, both the baseball and basketball "teams" were just the same team playing in two leagues each so we got to play a lot more games so it probably wasn't as rigo...

when they're singling up on JOB, he is just putting on a clinic. They're going to have to adjust and consistently double him.
Coleman better get ready in the corner. I bet he gets 3-5 really good looks from there during the second half if JOB gets it efficiently back out from the post.
