    Ah, yes. Explains the Ridnour trade marathon this offseason too. The Knicks are probably still paying Allan Houston too.

    I suppose that a guy who's only 24 still has "potential", but this is a fifth year pro that has only one NBA starter level-skill, and has shown virtually no improvement over his 4 years in the league. That's the kind of guy who should get $20M more than Boogie Cousins, huh.

    I'm happy because I don't like the Cavs. There's no way his contract doesn't come back to bite Comic Sans cockface in the ass

    Chauncey Billups is the only guy I can think of off the top of my head that took that long to make something of himself, but he was never a guy anyone thought would make it by that time.....just got a crazy break with Terrell Brandon going down and then boom. Obviously there's no connection between that and TT. though.

    Brandon Jennings above all of those. Yes to Collison, Augustine and Thomas. Add CJ Watson, Beverly, Beno, even Vasquez and Hinrich is preferable to Lin for me.

    Not much of a history to celebrate as a Wolves fan but Flip had a hand in virtually every high point. Plus he seemed like a legit good dude. I'm more sad about this than I thought I'd be. RIP Flip.

    What the fucking fuck??!! I just found out he had cancer this morning, and he was taking this season off to fight it....and now he's dead?!

    I feel terrible for him and his family

    Terrible news. That was a real shocker, as I was merely checking NFL stats on ESPN and see the headline about Flip. Definitely seemed like a good guy with high basketball acumen and a little wry smile.

    Has anyone signed up for nba league pass and had success splitting it amongst friends/family/coworkers using a single username and password? Also with regards to blackouts, are the blackouts based on billing zip or user zip via gps?

    I think Ballstreams is closed for newbies as of now. I checked yesterday and saw that it said "BallStreams is currently only serving existing members." You can't get to the referral page or create a new account.

    RE: NBA League Pass, I think (not 100%) that blackouts are based on billing zip.
