Re: “Best of the Decade: Film (Take 3)

I like reading these "best of the decade" movie posts....

I don't watch enough movies to produce a credible list....and actually, I like to use lists like this to help pick out movies to watch in the future, since going to blockbuster and scanning the new releases usually ends up in renting a crappy movie....

but when I think back to the last few years (the first of the decade didn't count....still an undergraduate and thus only beer, drugs, and women mattered), 3 movies stick out in my mind as ones I really liked and watched more than once......in fact, watching a movie more than once is so rare for me, that it is a great indicator of how much I like it....behold

Re: “Thinking About Mike Conley

Isn't there a case to be made that Griz stats past the all star break for the last 3 years should be taken with a grain of salt? The season has been over by Jan or Feb the last 3 years.

3 years ago we suck so bad by Dec, Frat is canned and Barone is installed....season over early

2 years ago we suck so bad by Jan, Pau is traded......season over early

1 year ago we suck so bad by Jan, Ivy is fired......season over early

I still WANT to believe that Kinsey's rookie of the month, month was legit....that it meant he was a promising young player that could keep his head above water in the nba and be a contributor on the wing.......he's in Turkey now.....

In a sense, this argument parallels why fans and pundits put extra emphasis on performances in the playoffs.....when the game means more.....when there is more on the line.....the performance is more meaningful......

So far in the NBA, the more meaningful the situation, the worse Mike Conley plays.

Trade away all Conley's competition for minutes.....put him on a team 20 games out of the playoffs....give him a brand new coach with built in excuses for being bad.....play Conley with a team that has half checked out mentally and against teams overlooking the bottom dweller Griz......

and Mike Conley will shine.....

Re: “Season Preview: Why Can't Rudy Gay be Danny Granger?

another reason to sign gay this year (if you indeed want to sign him at all):

next year, gay can simply take the QO and play out another year and hit the market unrestricted....a la Ben Gordon, his UConn buddy. RFA leverage only works if Gay tries to cash in during the Summer of LeBron. If he decides he is cool waiting another summer, that RFA leverage is gone.

Re: “Griz-Hawks Game Post

This is Zack. I'm in Calgary. It's really cold. I just spent 2 hours in a bar watching freaking hockey. I'm bored. Give me some game notes to read.

Re: “Iverson Press Conference Notebook

uh, they are calling it a circus, because that is exactly what it appears to be....

L3E, surely telling people to shut up isn't the best way to disagree with healthy skeptism about two high-risk, high-reward moves.........
