  1. Back running like normal again.
  2. So ... several thoughts ... 1. If KD opts in to his GSW contract (reasonable assumption) 2. And surmising that he almost certainly won't play next season (small gamble that he might be able to return in March or April) and thus then becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season 3. Should we trade for him (since we can absorb his salary by giving back someone like Plumlee or Bazemore), in exchange for an asset? 4. He could stay with the GSW team rehab folks if he wants to and then resign with GSW or whomever he wants. 5. GSW gets quite a bit of monetary relief through this deal, because of their repeater tax penalties. 6. We can actually agree to waive KD so he can play for whomever he wants to if he is healthy enough prior to the end of next season.
  3. It's how I found out the Squawk was back too. Thanks for the mention of it.
  4. I used to be very good friends with the owner of Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling and also with some the major players at Coke through my work raising funds for non-profit organizations in Atlanta (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children's Healthcare, Reinhardt University, etc.). We also found it difficult to get money from Coke because their answer was always "We don't want to be perceived as a 'local' company by sponsoring local organizations. We want to be seen as a national and international company, so we try to sponsor things that are bigger than just supporting Atlanta teams or organizations."
  5. It's undoubtedly the Russians ...
  6. At the game in Chicago with my two sons. One son moved here from Atlanta recently, as I did ten years ago. Other son is in town from D.C. We're on the center line, five rows back. Literally hundreds of Atlanta fans are here. Brad Guzan is from Chicago. Go Five Stripes (we're all wearing our jerseys)!!
  7. I grew up in Chicago and had a brother who worked at Loyola. Always helps to pick a few potential upsets, so I just went with the heart on this one. Longtimefan.
  8. I'm in. I think I recall doing well last year. Goal is always simple - beat Diesel. :)
  9. Bud has a pretty crappy lineup in here for crunch time. He got the memo ...
  10. I just gotta' say ... much credit to leathalweapon3 for maintaining his enthusiasm and creating such excellent Official Game Threads continually. Takes a lot of fandom to stay so engaged when our team is not generating much excitement these days. Much thanks!
  11. I believe that in some states going that much over the speed limit is regarded as a felony.
  12. Hi Dolf,

    I am no longer seeing the Twitter feed on the right side of the page.  Has that feature been eliminated?  I posted in another section and others say they too have lost it.  Any help on this?

    Thanks for everything you do.

  13. Geez...Baze is even worse in person. Why does he ever bother to shoot?
