      The Redskins have opened their 2019 season with two losses. Both against Divisional foes. Now they get to close out Week 3 at home on Monday Night against the visiting 1-1 Chicago Bears. The Bears don't have much of an offense but seem to have what may be an elite defense.
       
      On the flip side, the Redskins have a developing passing attack and a disastrous defense. The Redskins haven't had a Defense this vanilla since Mike Nolan received his ice cream. Oh, and the Redskins already have more guys on IR then any other team this season. 
       
      Will the Redskins finally put one in the win column? 
       
      As usual, poll closes at kickoff. Go vote!

Our starting line up is Kemba Walker, Donovan Mitchell, Harrison Barnes, PJ Tucker, and Brook Lopez?

 

That's not even a playoff team in the NBA.

Walker and Mitchell are ballers and I believe D'aaron Fox is on the team too.

 

But man those starting 3-5...really?

Back in 2004 I remember tripping because guys like Carlos Boozer were in the team.  Now our starting power forward is PJ Tucker.

 

What happened to team USA?  For a minute there I was hoping that the FIBA world championships would catch on and become like the World Cup, but that is never going to happen without a higher profile competition.

I wouldn't be surprised if the injuries are connected.  I bet something happened to him when he was a young athlete in his teens.  That ESPN story about basketball wrecking the joints of kids as young as 11 years old comes to mind in a situation like this.

He is a big dude. Might just be wear and tear. 

 

All things considering it’s amazing Shaq lasted as long as he did at that size. He is an incredible athlete.

This reminds me of a quote I recently read. 

 

Quote

“Here.’ I held out a silver crown between two fingers to take his mind off it. ‘You can have this coin, or, you can have the most valuable piece of advice I own, something a wise man once told me and I’ve never shared.’ ‘Well?’ I asked.

 

Hennan furrowed his brow, staring at the coin, then at me, then at the coin. ‘I’ll…’ He reached out, then pulled his hand back. ‘I’ll … the advice.’ He blurted it out as if the words pained him.

 

I nodded sagely. ‘Always take the money.’ Hennan”
Mark Lawrence, The Liar’s Key

 

Boogie took a small deal to prove he could get back to 100% and win a chip.  Accomplished neither.  Bet on himself again taking a vet min deal with the lakers... and his knee blew out. 

 

As Nerlens Noel learned the hard way, less than max money isn't nearly the worst thing that can happen.

Stan Van gundy left ESPN to join TNT. I didn’t realize until it happened, but I needed that in my life. The commentary is going to go off and so many tangents. Plus I can’t wait till he is talking to the TNT crew.

Combine that with his size and weight.  He's not like, fat Shaq, but he's a big dude.  It could be a culmination of things, wouldn't be surprised.

 

I like Boogie, was looking forward to seeing what he could do with the Lakers this year.

Even he quit the team.  This has gotten shameful.

Makes me wonder if something is going on behind the scenes.  Maybe players are unhappy with team USA for some reason or teams have strongly discouraged participation.

Still a damn good Team USA roster. Can't get all the big superstar names all the time. They should represent our country well. I expect gold.

All this talk of Book wanting to be single guarded in pickup games. I agree. 

 

I wish somebody would would guard me 1on1 during a game. I mean all they usually do is just leave me standing alone on the 3pt line and call me Duke and just let me bomb away to my heart’s content. Sometimes it feels like the Defense is playing 5 on 4. 

 

Interesting strategy...

Don't have to worry about the defense if you play full court and cherry pick 🤯

 

Also works in indoor soccer when your gym teacher is too checked out to call offsides.  That tactic actually got me in fights in the locker room.

I live in the greater LA area and they seriously are talking about signing Dwight Howard? Is it me or did he just sit out the Wizards season?

Actually he averaged 12/9?? Why didn't he play more?
