I Knew I Was in Danger


We were once lucky enough to feature some images from bobarke/champions. He has returned, and we are all the better for it. Also check out the year-end edition of FD/DoC, with special guest star Eric Freeman.

The picture of Bosh could have been a still from an episode of the Twilight Zone.

re: your fanhouse piece on cousins (AOL commenting sux).

disappointed to see you swing back. haven't we learned from beasley? ....not the side stuff....but the same questions around his mental approach to the game that have proved to be his undoing (thus far).

my gut says the nets are hyping cousins because they want philly to take him....so they can slide in and grab favors. drafting derrick coleman left scars.

I don't love him now, I'm just not so down on him that I'll devote all my draft energies to bashing him. I see what people like. My misgivings are all on record there, rationally, but I acknowledge that things could work out.

I think a Beasley/Cousins comparison falls short once you get past the personality issues. Couple things about Cousins: He's a size or two taller and bigger than Beasley, he's not as in love with outside jumpers, and he's a complete freak at rebounding (a lot better than Beasley, and with more big men on his team that he had to compete with for boards). He's just one of those rare guys who has a particular knack for getting to the right spot for rebounds. In watching him, this stood out more than his offensive touch, and his stats prove it.

If there is a type of player who can contribute on both offense and defense without the perfect team-first mentality, it's this type of player. He would need to land with the right team, but he could yet contribute, even if his mind isn't all there and he doesn't develop into an major post threat. My biggest concern would be the possibility of him getting fat.

And if Philly doesn't take Turner, I'd say it's a mistake, unless they take Favors specifically to trade him for Turner.

agree the beasley comparison is a stretch at best. but the coleman one is a bulls-eye.....watching cousins this year was an oldtime 'cuse flashback. a man among boys.

I trust an epic Manute Bol piece is forthcoming.

The big man was an amazing individual, and his untimely end is tragic. May he rest in peace.

His philanthropy is well documented, but perhaps it is appropriate here to note that he was responsible for affecting the daily lives of we privileged American basketballers in a way you likely never would have guessed:

That's right, Manute Bol was probably the originator of the universally useful phrase "My bad." What a renaissance man.
