No idea where to put this so here it is : Le Mans won french league championship. The team which developed the young Batum and where Fall - 7"3 center - made a work out last year with the Hornets.

Captain of the team, Romeo Travis so LBJ himself posted about it 8-)






So at least one hornet fan happy of the season (ok i cheat a bit) :D

Where in the world is Braggins? I hope we don't have another Jaruff situation on our hands. :(

JLamb is at this bar I'm at playing Cornhole. Second time we've crossed paths this summer.

@ Diop:
I am so sorry for the way Filipinos have acted in this game. To say that what happened in this FIBA World Cup Qualifiers between Australia and the Philippines was disgraceful is an understatement.

Aussies weren’t exactly blameless either. Kickert probably started it with his retaliation hit

Diaw might announce he retires today (he probably just finished to play his last game with our NT).

lol, just saw the video.

Well i guess Blatche was a bball player for sure. Sad to see Maker lose his mind like this though.

At the very least philippins will most likely have to play on closed session in the next future. The worst was still that chair flying apparently from the crowd. Players losing their mind is one thing, crowd geting agressive a whole other story. Especially when you consider the freaking score of the game.

Both sides have their fault. The way I see it, Pogoy started it when he planted an elbow on Goulding when he drove and then shoved him afterwards. That's when Kickert retaliated and things got messy real fast.

I hope Sobey is all right. He got mauled behind the stanchion by some of the players. :(

From what I saw, Aussie's bench players are pussy. How come they just watched one of their teammate got mauled by a lot of Filipinos players?

Lol, you could see they wanted to go over but knew that would mean getting fined or suspended etc, so the coaches told them to stay back and they’re disciplined enough to listen

It does indeed stop the stupid url change ads that won't let me leave that page.

It also blocks embedded twitter links on RGM. Do you know a fix?

I agree. Those Boomers who stayed on their bench showed character. Even Delly held back his teammates.

I just click the links and view them that way; not sure how to embed it on the page.

They shouldn't fight the Filipinos players, all they have to do is just protect their teammate and took him away.

Same thought - I remember him being listed at 265 - either this is incorrect or he's as dense as lead: http://www.goduke.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=4200&SPID=1845&SPSID=22727
