I want to just say I support the notion that the teams rookies play on in their first 2-3 years greatly impact their development. Thats why I pray that someone like Michael Kid-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson or Jared Sullinger dont end up in Washington or Sacramento becuase their true professionals that those teams may target just for their non box score characteristics but would have to much to overcome as individuals. Pressure may get to them or they pick up bad habits and it follows them for their careers.

In the NO Podcast Episode 58: Minnesota’s Pick
Ryan and Michael spend a good bit of time talking about Rubio’s injury and what impact it may have on the league standings and the Hornets’ second first-rounder. Then, they talk Kaman’s value to the team, predict which games may be wins during this week’s slate of patsies, and make a prediction for results of the trade deadline.
Oh, and as for the picture – they are cute wolf puppies. Aren’t they soooo cute?

Does this mean The Hornets can't win the NCAA tourny? Great podcast as always. Why not bleep out the swears instead?
Being more creative or accurate is a challenge we should accept. It's so easy to say that "The team is playing like . . ." whatever. Why not say, "The team is playing like the worst team in the NBA in the last 5 years" or "The team is playing like they just drove to the game with their in-laws." Beyond that, words are words, and those words are out there. Kids will hear them eventually. It shouldn't be a cussfest, but things shouldn't be neutered so some kid will hear his first f-bomb a week later. Note well: I have a post ready to be published that is 20% cussing. Fact.
