Also, Pek is dead. RIP Pek.
When I got in the car today, the sports show was live at Lakers media day and they got Metta World Peace on, and they asked him if he'd been working on his three since Luke Walton is the coach and that's what he and Kerr did in Golden State last year, and he replied that he'd mostly been modeling. When they asked for more info, he said mostly in the shower.
Anyway - T Wolves predictions:
KAT - All-NBA Team, Top 5 in MVP (Curry, James, Leonard, Westbrook)
Lavine - Top 3 Most-Improved.
Ricky - Second All-Defensive Team
Wolves, 43-39, 7th seed.
(I haven't followed the NBA closely since T Hardaway was on the cover of NBA Live 98 and fucking Dale Ellis was stroking it from the corners.)
Reddit. It's one of those stories that gets more true the further you back away from it.
Is that a real Bazz shirt??! I'm probably missing something but I love it either way.
I'm torn on where I think the wolves will land in the west.
Top of the West:
Then: Portland, Wolves, Houston, Jazz, OKC, Mavs, Pelicans
I don't see the Wolves getting to 5 or 6 but looking at that group of teams, it's not the craziest thought. Portland and Houston seem like the only two certain to be in with Jazz following closely behind.
Phoenix, Lakers, Nuggets (although could be interesting) and Kings fall in the lower tier.
I have to respectfully disagree with kai, I think it is weird. Clay and JJ don't pass a whole lot either, and I wouldn't expect Bazzy to get more points per touch than them. Could be that they have to deal with defenders draped on them more often. That and his offensive rebounding.
And yeah it's a real shirt. For his one year at UCLA he had to sit out at the beginning because of some NCAA thing, Flea played at the first game and wore that.
