I'm stumped. Turns out the Darrin Hancock's of the world all have played for other teams.

Hope everyone on the borad is safe and doing okay!

Ignoring any active players, or players who only had one season in the league, all I've got is Cory Higgins who played 44 games over 2 seasons

Hope everyone is safe and sound in these crazy, chaotic times.


In a time when the world needs distractions, who else thinks that holding the NFL draft as a 7 night night extravaganza is an amazing idea?

Hold a round a night for 7 consecutive nights during prime time and have each round as detailed as the 1st round usually is, with in-depth player profiles and pick analysis etc?

I’d tune in for sure and think it would be such a welcome distraction.

Imagine how well we’d get to really know every single prospect as well?

I’d LOVE for the NFL to do it.

Stephon Marbury, who lives in Beijing, is trying to bring 10 million N-95 masks to his hometown, New York City, at cost. He is running into a lot of red tape, but I have no doubt it is going to happen.

I'm on the fence any other year for this but due to corona this year would be an exception. I lose interest in picks after the first round (2nd round maybe). I used to care about every pick from 1-7. Now I just care about 1 and MAYBE 2.

Anyone here do calisthenic workouts? With the gyms closed I've been doing them with pretty solid results thus far.

Why didn’t the Panthers take Simmons?

Seems like he would have been the perfect pick when he was still on the board and they were on the clock.

I have watched the first four episodes of The Last Dance. It is compelling viewing, both for the basketball (I remember the Bad Boys and hated Detroit; I remember Showtime with the Lakers) and for the backstories of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

Two things struck me about episode four. First, his teammates were stunned when MJ showed emotions beyond anger and annoyance. This was one angry young athlete, coming out of Wilmington, North Carolina. Second, as a fan, I always have the urge for retribution against dirty plays like the one Rodman laid on Pippen in the 1991 Finals. But the players agreed that it was far more powerful that Pippen got up from the sidelines and went about his business. That was the turning point in game four of the sweep.

Not sure. He has a hot girlfriend tho lol. I think we wanted a clogger in the middle but with luke retiring simmons woulda been a better potential replacement I guess.

I would have been happy with Simmons but there's something to the argument that we were a terrible defense last year even with Luke on the field. Until we improve our Dline play, who is lining up behind them may not matter. Brown was my second choice after Simmons, so hopefully that's how it'll work out.

Looking forward to the last two episodes of The Last Dance tonight! Episodes 3-4 were a bit disappointing, but 5-6 picked up the pace. It's very interesting to see how Michael Jordan became a little slower and did not soar quite as high in his 30s, but still dominated the game. If Phil Jackson was captain of the ship, Michael Jordan was a very particular and driven First Mate.

Boston has Kemba and Cam now :banghead:

Glad to see Cam get another shot, hopefully he balls out and has a nice comeback season.

Guys it is a PAINFUL time to be living up in New England while being a Lolcats/Panthers fan right now. Like God it was hard enough to see Kemba go to the Celtics but at least I don't absolutely despise that organization. Cam going to the Patriots is the worst possible thing that could have happened as far as my fandom is concerned. Now I have to deal with all the Cam Newton Patriots jerseys and Kemba Walker Celtic jerseys on the daily. Painful yall.
