I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.
Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.
Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend Andy!
I don't know who we could trade to tell you the truth. Actually the game is in New Orleans this year--but since your more college bball, you have an excuse for not knowing. The all-star game on the 17th.
Now, college basketball is my strong suit so forgive my lack of knowledge on this pro ball question...can we not do trades at the point in the season to firm up some d? We haven't even had the all star game in Vegas yet, so we're not halfway, right?
I like this roster we have--but something I can't really put my finger is still missing. We have one of the best scoring tandems in league in J-Rich and G-Force. Although Felton is a NC alum, I like him as the PG on this roster. Emeka Okafor isn't consistent enough and we could use another big man as well. Matt Carroll is someone on the team who is underrated. Hopefully next year when Adam Morrison returns we can do some damage. While Richardson and Wallace are deadly, Morrison would be a great third scoring option. The offense isn't a problem, they compete with the top teams every game. Defense is something that could use work because they give up 100 PPG.
Excellent. Let me ask Mr Journalism a question...what the hell is going on with the Bobcats?
I am a huge fan of Felton and Wallace and they've improved the 4qtr stamina but cannot buy any type of stability...like a roller coaster with long valleys and short peaks.
Oh ok, then we are officially cool again.
You know the only reason I like the Tarheels is for their college basketball program, Dean Smith, etc. My dad graduated from there so I grew up watching the ACC. Duke and Carolina are the best damn rivalry in college basketball. If ECU had a college basketball program worth something I would pull for them instead of UNC. Now, I'm gonna answer your question like you answered mine above...I don't really care who wins just so long as the play at least 4 times this year, you know?! They're awesome to watch. I admire Coach K. I want my daughter (1 year old) to go to Duke. So there...I'm not Carolina Blue as you may think! :-)
To tell you the truth, I really didn't care. I see you like the Tarheels so I have to ask you, are you guys ready for the butt whoopin Duke is going to hand you guys tomorrow?
Hey that's cool. Man I loved watching Valvano and Derrick and Lowe win the national championship. So let me ask you...what did you think when Miami announced that Henning was their OC?
Yes I am related to Derrick. He is my cousin on my mother's side. Something that I find weird about my family, is that some spell our last name berg and some burg. I have never met Derrick--but my grandmother tells me we are related.
