    I have a soft spot for anyone who purchases an additional home just to house his grow operation.

    Also, [Insert over-used joke about Rodney's guns, shooting, quick-trigger, etc.].

    That was a good one. Those darn guns/shooting/quick-trigger jokes get me every time.

    by the way, I just bumped into JoeD in Ljubljana today. Seems like he wanted to take a closer look at Datome at the Euro Championships.

    Hmm, link to Eurobasket2013.org boxscore for game not working, but

    Datome scores 10 in loss to Lithuania. Italy was never expected to get anywhere near this far in the tounament. So good job Italy.

    If you buy him some popcorn and a coke he might draft you.

    17 percent three point shooters who play no defense just don't seem to be in high demand any more.

    He has only taken 35 threes the entire season. I shoot that many in one rec league game.

    I'm guessing that if you hit 17% of them there, you would have become a local legend.

    Could you ever imagine Josh or Brandon saying this??

    I hope he gets in the rotation next season. Not having training camp and the injury really hurt him. Never seemed like a Cheeks kinda guy. And Loyer is playing for his next job so he has been riding the starters into the ground trying to win. Just a bad situation all round.
