A Smart Choice?

How does all this hoopla surrounding Marcus Smart affect his draft status, if any? Will teams pass on him because of anger problems? Is he the next Ron Artest?

Don't think NBA GMs are ready to call him the next Artest, but the situation appears to be hurting his draft stock, at least with some teams. This is a GM's quote from an ESPN article about the subject, "When you are loved more for your intangibles than your tangibles to begin with, how can it not (hurt his stock)?”

Red Sox Retired Numbers

I think this group is mostly Sox fans - so I pose the question. Who out of the following gets their number retired at Fenway: Pedro, Big Papi or Schilling?

Keep in mind there are rules for the Sox to retire numbers in Fenway - gotta play 10 years with the team and be in the Hall of Fame. I think Pedro and Papi are definitel HOF'ers, but Pedro didn't play for 10 years with the Sox. I would

NBA Nicknames

The NBA produces the best nicknames in the game, easily. And by easily of course I mean I'm biased and didn't give the other sports much thought. But for every awesome nickname like Slim Reaper, there is a dumb one like D-Wade or every dude who refers to himself as Superman. I'd like to get this forum going as a running list of a) awesome nicknames already out there and b) suggestions for dudes

If we're talking nicknames, than nothing tops Jared "The Pillsbury Throwboy" Lorenzen. The dudes 320 lbs. and still slinging the pigskin, in what looks like a semi pro football league being played at Manning Bowl.

IT ALL STARTS AT THE TOP

After reading all this draft/ legacy/ team building talk it got me thinking - the cliche it starts from the top kind of has more meaning.  The teams that continuously win either have great ownership or the right GM/President - with significant job security. Being able to take time and build something slowly is probably the most effective way to create a culture/system with stability. &n

Well said. Its true, the ownership group is the most important element of every sports franchise. It may be less obviously is leagues with salary caps, but the list of owners who have derailed their franchises (cough, Jerry Jones, cough) under the salary cap system is long.

Robert Kraft is the gold standard for ownership around here, but he wasn't always that way. Remember Parcells' famous quote when Kraft forced the team to take Terry Glenn: "They want you to cook the dinner; at least they ought to let you shop for some of the groceries. Okay?"

It is amazing how he has done a 180 with Belichick, letting him completely run the show. It's a real credit to Kraft for learning from his past mistake and putting aside his ego for the betterment of the organization. He is clearly the best owner in sports and the Patriots are the best run franchise in professional sports.
