    If it makes you feel any better Randle doesn't get back on defense at 4:52. I know you really want to be right about him being lazy since you saw it once in a clip from over a year and half again.

    ...and called him the best or second best player on the court. I know you really want to be right about things generally because you're stronger than women.

    lol still with that huh? even with all the proof and records of women with the same body type and size as a man and the difference in strength records? even things like swimming and running. i don't know why you're so offended about scientific fact. wasn't a diss towards women, it's just how it is.

    I think Randle's greatest weakness is durability. sometimes he looks really tired.

    I'll make every effort. I don't think I have anything planned at the time other than checking out the game.

    I love Julius's face in that picture. He's too young to experience the full Vegas (legally) so... boring. :D

    Looking like Julius wants to play some point forward this year.

    Hibbert does play some pretty small minutes for being a starter so Black should still get tons of time. Good to have a big like Hibbert in case we do make the playoffs and have to deal with a guy like Timmy or Mozgov ;)

    After watching the scrimmage, I am really looking forward to watching our team play in the Summer League.

    Clarkson looks bigger. Upshaw is huge, and probably out of shape.

    Randle is too strong for most guys on that team to handle, and pushes the ball sort of like Odom.

    Nance is a freak athlete. LOL at Randle getting dunked on like that. He needs to start playing some D.

    One thing going through my mind while Summer League is at Thomas Mack center in Vegas.

    Paul George.

    I hope they have the basket stanchions (base) are back to NBA standards unlike the time PG landed and broke his leg on. That worries me a lot.

    Just watched Upshaw's interview. He is saying all the right things. Let's see if he can earn a spot on this team. The guy has crazy potential, is a beastly shotblocker... 7-0 and around 280 lbs... yeah, I'm a believer. I truly believe he can be one of the top NBA centers, as long as he starts focusing on basketball instead of... other things.

    If Byron and other guys like him, I think we should offer him a contract. Don't let Dallas steal him from us.
