    Haha. Below Booker's tweet ("Goodluck tonight fellas! Remember.. it's not which # pick you are, it the situation you are drafted to.") KAT got a funny response in:

    "Well I was cool being #1."

    I think he wins this award due to his famous/infamous candor. Everyone knows he just says whatever is on his mind and don't give none. I think of a "butt-kisser" as someone that constantly, disingenuously butters up people for the sole purpose of gaining their favor. Did I miss evidence of this? I did check out for a while.

    Despite what some around here think, SVG has a very good reputation in the league with coaches and players.

    Like the other guy, the fact he actually does the job says otherwise. LOL

    I hope nobody is arguing whether or not this guy was an upgrade over Maurice Cheeks (out of the league) and Lawrence Frank (paid the big bucks to write scouting reports).

    The team is better than it was. The players are improving.

    He went 5-23 with the same team Cheeks did.

    Bit strange to randomly pick out the first 28 games of the season don't you say?

    Are you trying to say this team is no better than the Cheeks team?

    They didn't have the same team 29 games into the season.

    When they had the same team they were worse. Much worse.

    They also had differing levels of health, a new system to implement and a different schedule.

    Van Gundy is a better coach than Cheeks and Franks combined.

    Ernie, I think you're trying to make history fit your narrative.

    No team will touch Leuers and Bobans contracts without a sweetener. Those are relics from last years cap bonanza.
