Stayed up and saw the Woman’s USA vs Canada hockey game. Wow - Now THAT was exciting!

A “practical” approach recognizes that guns will always be present within the citizenry of our country. Thus, look for “practical” solutions to combat the issue. These folks would cite examples such as the use of Air Marshals aboard commercial aircraft, or armed guards inside banks and other places where folks with guns and malintent seek to do harm. The answer to the problem is not the elimination of guns, but the strategic placement of more of them.

FZB, This most recent school shooting was indeed a tragedy, and a “practical,” “efficient and righteous society SHOULD be able to curtail such incidents. Many on the left immediately jump to banning guns altogether or placing limits on weapons. If you recall, ‘I am Kazaam’ and I would argue these points ad nauseam. Here’s my take. Generally speaking, there are only two camps. Two versions of a personal view of the world. You have those who choose to obtain their news primarily from places such as: CNN, MSNBC, NPR, NYTimes WAPO and other “leftist agenda sites” and those who obtain their news from places like: FOX News, Breitbart, Drudge, The Federalist. Observing further, it can be said that the “left” camp shares certain attributes, attributed summed up best I believe, in trying to bring about change to things in ways that SHOULD BE, as opposed to the way they are. Idealistically based, not accepting of “reality.” Of “practicality.” Take the issue of guns and gun control here in America, for instance. Do you, or anyone really think that 300 million firearms will be confiscated by the government willingly or unwillingly? That altering the Second Ammendment in any significant way will come about? Well, to borrow one of the left’s favorite hero, BO - “That’s just NOT who we are.” Wanting to abolish guns here in America is tantamount to wishing the earth to be oblong and not round. It will never happen. It is unrealistic.

Do gun control proponents ever stop and wonder why we never see these sickos perpetrate this kind of violence walking inside a police station?

Nah. It’s all regular season stuff. The most important aspect of that is finishing up high enough to secure home field through the playoffs. I do know that Clarkson and Nance make the Cavs significantly better. They were bench guys in a team not making the playoffs. As such, most fans outside the Laker market viewed them as nothing more than lumpy oatmeal, as opposed to being good but young. Outside Brook Lopez and Pope the Laker team is young, energetic, with great attitude and work ethic.

Worked out for Phili coaching, as somehow they got along with him just fine.

Heck, he had that with Ajayi.

I agree with that, but I don’t get the feeling that Gase would pursue a two-back approach.

I like Drake, don’t get me wrong, but the way the Dolphins are currently configured, their philosophy, seems dated. Not a land-line, but a flip phone, and certainly not an iPhone 10.

Bell, Blount, Ajayi, all 220+, big backs that gain lots of yards after contact. Drake is 211 and gets his primarily through quick cuts. Even were he to qualify, Gase seems to like the single runner featured throughout the game and as receiver, as opposed to the Way Phili used their two backs, which is the point.

Do not hold your breath thinking that the Dolphins and Cage will follow that approach. They prescribe to the little, single, durable scat-back, to the big beefy D-tackle, and clear running or passing QB play.

Interesting analysis on how NFL teams may try to copy the Eagles’ success. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/news/how-teams-should-copy-the-super-bowl-champion-eagles-in-the-2018-nfl-draft/

You’re not giving the kid enough credit.

You won’t get an argument there

End of pass first with Cousy? What about Nash, Magic? I’m not in agreement with such finite absolutes.

I don’t know if you saw James interact with Ball when they first played together, but James was very encouraging towards the youngster. In a mentor sort of way. I think they would play great together.

The guy still gets his numbers, BB. He may be the exact PG James needs

IF!!!!????

You can’t have two ball-hogs together in one team. Either Irving or James had to go, so whatever the Cavs got in order to stop Irving from bitching is what it is. Now James must consider whether it’s attractive enough for him to leave the Cavs and play in a market like SoCa, alongside a core of young, talented players with a point guard that will be feeding him the ball 99.9% of the time two inches from the basket.

BB, What the heck are you talking about? Do you actually think they the Lakers did this to get and KEEP Thomas and Frye!? Buddy, they have just created a $100M war chest by which to spend. Not only that, but they picked up a #1 pick! Ball, Ingram, Randle, Kuzma. That’s three current starters, plus one that should be in Kuzma. If anything, this trade has given James a real option for him going forward. I’m sorry to see Clarkson and Nance Jr. go, but I think this positions the Lakers for a very quick rise.
