Ressler was clear that he didn’t think former coach Budenholzer could handle both the coach and GM jobs, leading to the Hawks stripping Budenholzer of his head Gale Sayers Jersey of basketball ops job and picking Schlenk as GM last year. The organization made a mistake with Horford, in my view, http://www.footballbearsofficialauthentic.com/Gale-Sayers-Jersey.html but didn’t get the offers it wanted for Millsap before he left. That’s a decision, one of a hundred a team makes every day.
I thought it was ridiculous for those fans to boo an 18-year-old young man just because they wanted the Knicks to draft Michael Porter, Jr. Despite his potential and being a household name, Porter Jr. also possesses an injury history. I have nothing against him, but it just drives me crazy how Knicks fans are always clamoring about the franchise’s futility and ineptitude — but this time, they did the right thing.
They picked a guy they love instead of going for the household name. Those same people who are booing now would be the same fans calling into radio stations and protesting outside of MSG if the Knicks would have selected Porter Jr. and he missed the upcoming season or suffered a long-term injury in a few seasons. Hopefully, Porter Jr. has a good career — but we weren’t in position to take that chance.
Television ratings for Finals games were higher during Jacob Markstrom Jersey the Jordan years, to be sure, and they were higher the last two years before this year’s 4-0 Golden State sweep. But there was no mass exodus of viewers during what became a fourth straight Warriors-Cavaliers Finals — this one with almost no drama or memorable moments after the bang-bang block on LeBron James and J.R. Smith’s mental implosion in Game 1. (The sweep also muted, for at least one June, the annual convention of the Tinfoil Society, which sees every Finals as an opportunity to test out their latest ref conspiracy/league-fixing theories. What happened this year, folks? Did the NBA not need to ensure The Finals went seven games by making sure the ball was filled with boron whenever Kevin Durant had the rock?)
But what of competitive balance, which the league went to great pains during the last lockout to signal was in peril if the former economic system was not radically fixed? The creation of the supermax deal for home grown players, ratcheting up the repeater tax, hard-capping teams that went above the luxury tax apron, limiting sign and trade deals — all of these tools were supposed to make it impossible for elite teams to hoard great players, and spread difference-making talent http://www.vancouvercanucksofficialonline.com/Adidas-Jacob-Markstrom-Jersey around the league.
