    This. We saw Ingram get injured, though just a cramp, in the first game. Use it to scout/try out players for the GLeague team.

    How does it feel having irrefutable proof of your age?

    What's an AC joint? Can't you just shoot it up and get back in the weight room? Hope you're not going ....

    I've been feeling my age for a while. I was right in the middle of my second set and all of a sudden the top of my left shoulder started to "crackle" then rip. I was like, "WTF!?!? In the middle of a set?"

    AC joint is the joint that sort of attaches your clavicle to your shoulder blade. When someone has a separated shoulder, it's the AC joint. A dislocated shoulder is the ball and socket part. I didn't fully detach it. They don't think I'll need surgery.

    Damn man, that sucks. I wasn't sure you were serious. Did you have any previous indications something was wrong? Wake up sore? Any sort of activity beforehand that you don't usually do?

    Nope. Just a day like any other. I'm sure it was compromised in some way, I just didn't notice.

    At least you don't need surgery. This calls for some good bourbon.

    I was just minding my business, but you say "compromised in some way"...you mean like deleting your browsing history-type compromised?

    Seriously tho, no surgery indicates you'll be completely fine in about 6 weeks time. Kind of a long time to go without...well just make sure you don't further compromise yourself.

    First year rookie ties for top scorer. Boarded well, picked it up on the defensive end when challenged by coach. Fastest footwork of any power forward I can think of atm. Great attitude, exudes confidence, talks trash. I thank God that we got D'Angelo just so he could turn into Kuz. What a blessing on the year for us. Jules, BI, Kuz all have All Star potential and Lonzo if he ever makes that shot go in steadily. Hart looking like a star at the end of the season given more focus. To be fair to Jules though, he did it with 5-7 mins less then Kuz/BI. And, 20PER, 8 boards. He only averaged 26.7 mins. At a full 34-35 mins he's a guaranteed 20/10 guy.

    Just adding the right piece, like maybe PG, to this group could have an effect like when Detroit added Rasheed. Total changed everything. And I could even see them really being a little like '04 Detroit, I know that's not where most go with there future vision of them, maybe a higher scoring version of Detroit but I mean the balance they had, everyone defended, everyone got enough points. No 30-40 point scorers really needed. And obviously they need to keep up that defensive growth. It could happen.

    Yeah, I agree. If we get PG next year, we could have 4 potential 20 ppg scorers in Ingram, Randle, Kuzma and PG. I like that balance.
