reminds me of Jermaine O'Neal. O'Neal was just a baby faced kid when he
came into the NBA right out of high school. He had an elite NBA body, but
also the mind of a spoiled teenager. Sound familiar Bob? Williams said he
would use the doubters to "do things the right way." Bob, your 0
for 2, and no one gives a crap.
O'Neal spent his rookie contract on the
bench, too immature to get on the floor for four years. But he learned,
matured, and grew mentally. Of course he was so immaturely pissed off at the
Trailblazers for not playing him that he left as free agent to go to Indy.
He never won a Championship.
has two years at A&M on O'Neal. So look for him to be benching it for
two years, before he is ready to put his elite NBA body to good use. He
has never seen a guy on the Court who can get up higher than him before,
and now he will not see the Parquet past warm ups. He will be a
meaningless minutes hero, who makes the spectacular plays when the
game is over.
the only question left is are you going to turn bitter like Jermaine on
the bench, or are you going to be a man and finally understand that no one
gives a crap. You handle your business as a Man, or everyone you
As a Man, your life is no longer your own. Your job now is
to succeed at your work, or your family suffers. And blaming everyone
around you for your immaturity and failures is what stupid teenagers do.
So are you a Man, or still a stupid teenager?
mean... Jason Tatum showed up for the first Summer League Practice, even
though there is no way you can let him play this year. "I think everyone’s
disappointed," Celts SL HC Larrañaga said. "You want to get everything off to a good start in the first
day. But we’ll handle that internally and move forward." He has to
bench him on Friday, minimally.
is missing more than he knows. "I really enjoyed it last year," Tatum said. "I really got introduced to the staff, the coaches, playing with
JB. Just getting a lot of reps in. It's fun. Summer League's about
competing. But it's a lot of fun." He is now another step behind the other
hasn't even met his Summer League Coach yet. "I've never met
him. So I can't really speak on anything but my personal interaction," Larranaga said.
"I think with every rookie that comes into the NBA it's really a race to maturity, and some people are further ahead like a Jayson Tatum. And a lot of guys have some work catching up to do. So Robert, like I said, when he gets here tomorrow we'll start working with him. And I'm just excited to get to meet him."
He is no Tatum.
has to learn to work like an NBA player, and this was suppose to be his
introduction to what these guys have to do. "I think what we all saw from Jayson very early on, whether it was in his workout before the draft or in practices with us, is he's a worker," Larranaga said. "We've seen that. He's a consistent worker and that pays off. He got a tremendous opportunity and he stepped up big throughout the season. I truly believe that all of that was a result of all the hard work he puts in. To his credit, he's continuing to work. He's here today. I don't think anyone could have guessed he would have had such a featured role, considering everything that we did last offseason, but I think all of the preparation he did made it possible."
I hope Bob can see the example Tatum is trying to be.
problem is that the dumbassery affected more than just Bob. "I think introduce the whole group to our system, our culture, how we do things as quickly as possible,"
Larrañaga said. "And after that, just learn as much about the players. So we can put them in a position to be successful. This is as much about the players as it is about us, really."
It is no longer going to be as quick as possible for all the young guys
development was slowed, and he slowed the development of some guys who do
not have his lock on a roster spot. "It's a lot of good players in Summer League,"
Tatum said. "Obviously, but when you get to the regular season and you're playing against LeBron and KD and all those guys, it's a lot different than Summer
League." Tatum went to Summer League for Bob, the way Jaylen went down to Vegas
for him last year.
the result was much different. "We've had Terry and Marcus last year come back,"
Larrañaga said. "And I think that's how you build culture. Players learn from other players. So having Jayson here, letting everyone see how he works, why he had such a successful rookie year is, I think, important."
To bad Bob missed the first show.
he missed his introduction to his new coach, Tatum, and the first
"And a lot of guys have some work catching up to do," Larrañaga said.
"So Robert, like I said, when he gets here tomorrow we’ll start working with him. And I’m just excited to get to meet
him." A rookie is a year or two behind everyone else on the roster.
now Bob is even more behind. "I mean it’s part of your introduction to NBA
basketball," Tatum said. "Go out there, obviously it’s not superstars out there playing, but it’s guys who played professional. Just see what you can do."
That even shocked Jason, who is the same age as Bob.
mean, what a stark difference when you look at the maturity level of the
two 20-year olds. "I don’t really know the details about it,"
Tatum said. "I mean, the coaches know. So, we'll see him
tomorrow." That just says it all, when the other 20-year old who is
not suppose to be there says, "we'll see him tomorrow."
how he sneaks up smartly into rebounding positon with his eye on the ball.
Then the great quick pass, from the double, to the corner shooter. That is
an NBA Post move right out of Steven's playbook (:21). He sneaks over to
rebounding position (:35). Best Ooper in the Draft.
Ooper in the Draft (:50). He switches to the Small at the 3-Point. The
Small sees an easy basket and drives by him with a great aggressive move.
Oops (1:00). He never seems to loose when you go high with the pass to him
(1:23). I'm still not sure how that went in.

Ooper in the Draft. That will be his signature move as a rookie . When
they actually let him on the Court (2:37). Great block off the double jump
(2:46). I mean... I mean... How many guys his size have you seen block so
many shots out at the 3-point line. That can be the difference between the
bench, and playing in the new NBA (2:57). This Tape emphasizes the problem.
On Tape he is an elite prospect. Off Tape? He is not.

the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever
written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free
Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to
attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs
is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or
you will be subjugated:
Mueller gets closer and closer to Trump, the administrations gets more and
more aggressive in it's fascists tendencies. Now he is trying to stack the
courts to take away all the rights of working people, There is nothing millionaires
and billionaires hate more then the rights of working people. And he is
trying to stack the Court to stop Mueller as well.
as the Trumps illegally tried to keep cash flowing into his presidency, he
left a money trail that is leading Mueller right back to Trump, and his
traitorous connections to Russia. They are following the cash right back
to the White House. And the dust of treason is shaking off everywhere.

and pumped it into Trumps den of traitors:
"The NRA disclosed in April that it received about $2,500 in contributions from 23 Russia-linked individuals since 2015. McClatchy reported earlier this year that the FBI was looking into whether one of those donors, Alexander Torshin, used the NRA to funnel money to the Trump campaign.
week it seems another Russian spy is found colluding with Trump, or
members of his campaign. Over and over, week after week. Russians keep
popping up in influential and obviously colluding ways in Trump's treasonous
campaign. And (R) keep looking the other way like the Cowardly Congress
they are. Now is the time for fighting, before Herr Trump takes over our
delicate Democracy, and forever ruins our freedom.
