    Thank you for that.
    Izzo would get eaten up.
    It is a players league and they are much younger. Too young.
    Dangerously so.
    Why?
    They are a commodity that has been bred pure.
    It is a breeding ground from a small introductory age; including the upbringing from the excessive breeding stock tainted from parents, coaches and then later, friends including newer sycophancy relationships.
    Upon the introduction on stage, you now have a whole host of those that want their piece. Start with the agents who are the most manipulators fine tuning the player's narcissistic existence.
    Some players learn the vernacular of gaming the system. The extremely adaptable ones learn the language. Is not Gores a perfect example of this: un-personalized, glib, excessive use of sanitized past, present and future references.
    A sure way in recognizing the latter is the inconsistency of decision making.
    Where do you speak from?

    if anything, this talk should have been held until after the tourney........Glad he was able to come out today and try to defuse it.... If the talk of going to the Pistons continues on to Friday and Sparty lost the game then whomever started the rumor...... in Ann Arbor, would have been blamed for it..., then again..Izzo did say never say never to any offer.....

    It's a fixed room...a rigged table, and he comes with a pocket full of money.
    He'd see it right away, but the GM will distract his attention.

    Some good writeup about Izzo:
    Michigan State's Izzo wants to prove people right - Yahoo Sports

    Now, that's impressive.

    Scalabrine is a Piston-killer, not a Piston-leader

    Perhaps, but it depends on the longevity of the contract. Enlightened (cough, cough) owners need to reach beyond and understand the dancing geological plates of abduction.
    Notice how Ainge led the way (Stevens for 6 years at 22M).
    Izzo could never relate and doesn't want the new time frame of a coral reef.
    Now Billy is a bigger reach (4 years at 24M)
    Florida Gators coach Billy Donovan still intrigued by NBA - ESPN
    Of course, Gores is so corporate soft, that this could never be.
    But still, all must understand the waves of vibration and the beginnings of intensified energy.
    GM: Tom Penn
    Coach: Billy Donovan (and a couple of others)

    Gores should book the Dancing Geological Plates of Abduction for a half time show next year.

    It would have to be 2015-16. They are booked for over a year in advance.

    Your analysis of geological plates of abduction...would be my meteor strike of destruction.

    Indeed. Right time with the right message.
    A nice southing lyric and because of it's rightfulness, Paul McCartney joined in (an understanding to his Yellow Submarine).
    Now, if we had a some different "other" orientation on this forum, most ladies would have had a different understanding of Saffron.

    Knew a girl named Saffron back then.
    Always considered her rare...like the spice.
    Apparently...song had a different slant.
    Thanks for your post...nice memories.
