Vasquez not withstanding, the other teams can have the past players. Lowry gets the most pub, but he is a physical, get in the lane point guard and that doesn't match as well with our bigs.
Would still love to have Vasquez as a back up at his pay rate vs quality. Q-Pon is rounding out to be a very sold and balanced player, but a good point guard is still more valuable.
... and Rudy Gay looked as lazy as ever. 3 of 17 shooting with zero assists. What a waste of talent.
The pension structure needs to be changed before any taxes increase.
John, the property tax and sales tax affect businesses much more than residents. This is just another reason to move a business out of the core or into Mississippi.
And we wonder why people are leaving the city.
My wife is from Brazil. She is Latina, not Hispanic.
Does all this matter. I guess it depends on who asks who.
But if the question is asked, the distinction matters. Is a Hatian (most Hatians) Black? Yes. Is a Hatian Hispanic? Yes. If a Hatian is seen walking down Poplar, would it be correct to refer to them as African American as would probably happen? Of course not.
I wish none of this mattered unless your doctor wanted to know your ancestry for health reasons. Most of the time, the only reason this matters is political.
Or just put them in your vegetable steamer for 30 minutes. Perfect every time and very easy to peel.
I am as big a Grizzlies fan as anyone and defended Rudy Gay for a long time when my friends have dogged him. Unfotunately, I have joined their camp. It may be unfair, but compare the way Marc plays to Rudy. Marc is intense. Rudy is laughing. Marc mixes his offense between outside shots and moves toward the basket. Rudy passes on driving to the basket against rookies (see Derrick Williams of Timberwolves) and settles for jumpers. Marc fouls people when they shoot. Rudy fouls people after they have driven past him.
We will not make the playoffs unless Rudy plays better. Not having a back up point guard will not help either. You can't bat 1.000, but Chris Wallace and aparently Lionel Hollins blew me away with that trade.
You bring some excellent points Mr. Branston.
I too am skeptical of some of the financial assumptions being considered. I live very close to Overton Square and want this project to be a success. The parking lot should be pay to park and privately run. A "free" parking garage run by the city would be disgusting and people wouldn't want to park there for that reason alone. Loeb needs to contribute funds for the parking part of the garage, and once it is built let them "own" it and operate it. They won't be able to charge an arm and a leg for parking because, as you mention, there are alternatives. I would rather pay $2-$3 to park in a clean secure lot than a trashy free one. That's cheaper than a beer at Bosco's.
