MosesHey, WHIC. One of the great joys of Facebook is reminding old classmates that they used to like Live (the band). Here's one of that band's classics -- it's called, "Shit Towne".

I was going to make an old man joke about that. I'll just move on.

That album sucked though. Even in 1994.

Oh, holy shit, of course it was garbage. I was a source of steadfast reason against that shit.

Det, I don't text people, and I never respond to them.

I know you guys are fucking stoked (fucking PUMPED!) about HBO's Lomachenko fight on April 8th, but we also have a whale of a fight this weekend to sate your boxing cravings. Marco Huck challenges Mairis Briedis to a battle in the resurgent cruiserweight division. I personally feel a connection to the class because were I a boxer, I would almost assuredly have fought as a cruiserweight. We have lots of good possible fights and young stars in this division, and Marco Huck himself was involved in one of the ten best fights of the past two years. Marco Huck versus Krzysztof Glowacki is a recent classic. It has everything even a casual fan of boxing could want. LINK

Briggm, yes, #BoxingTwitter has made me aware of Edwin Valero. A few Twitterers loved the guy in the ring, and I watched a couple because his fights had an obvious electricity to them.

Also, I once made a joke about his hanging himself in his prison cell. Something along the lines of "Some boxers quit on the stool. Edwin Valero kicked his out from underneath him." It was well received.

wirthlingMistreating puppies is probably put in the "pro" column by New England.

That case would concern me. Here's a link. Cook was cited for linking an eight-month old and two two-month old pit bulls directly to their necks with a heavy chain that was choking them. The second citation was for not giving them shelter as it had rained the night before and was raining when the officer was on scene.

He had an eight-month old and two two-month old pit bulls that don't seem to be pets.

And like Mixon, the aggravated assault Cook was arrested for was directed at a woman.

Via Twitter, Bleacher Report's Ian Kenyon has pointed out Florida State's Dalvin Cook's character issues in comparison to Joe Mixon's. Cook will be a first round selection and maybe even the first running back selected in the upcoming draft. Joe Mixon is also a first round talent, but may go undrafted due to an incident in a Norman bar where he was videotaped punching a woman unconscious.

Kenyon's Tweet on Dalvin Cook's legal history:?

[font=Arial, sans-serif]-Robbery (2009)
-Firing a weapon (2010)
-"Criminal Mischief" (2014)
-Mistreating puppies (2014)
-Aggravated assault (2014--not charged)
[/font]

I don't watch much college football, so I didn't know whom Cook was previous to reading articles on the draft soon after the Super Bowl. I've read many blurbs and profiles on the top 50 or so guys in the draft, but this is the first extended bit of information I have read on Cook's legal history. If you're an NFL GM, wouldn't Cook's pattern of behavior concern you more than Mixon's?

MosesAlso, Rudy Gobert vs. Anthony Davis is on right now. Gobert is coming of the best week of his career, and is on the verge of becoming one of the best 15 players. He's already better than DeAndre Jordan.

After that awful first game, I'm done with the NBA tonight.?

This game was a bit better, and the big men didn't disappoint:

Anthony Davis shot 12-23 for 36 points, 11-14 free throws, 1 three, 17 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 3 blocks, and just 1 turnover.

Rudy Gobert shot 8-11 for 20 points, 4-8 free throws, 19 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 5 blocks, and also just one turnover.

The national television audience (and probably the voting media) has not seen a lot of Rudy Gobert. He's currently leading the league in defensive win shares and block percentage, 3rd in defensive rating, and 2nd in defensive box plus/minus.

Overall, Gobert is 2nd in win shares, 5th in rebounds, 1st in true shooting percentage, 2nd in effective shooting percentage, 13th in box plus/minus, and 10th in VORP.

Rudy Gobert will make the All-Defensive First Team, but I imagine either Draymond Green or Kawhi Leonard wins the defensive player of the year. I believe it will be Green (and probably should be) because voters will want to reward him for sacrificing personal stats for Kevin Durant. I would like to see Gobert sneak onto the 3rd Team All-NBA, but he'll likely have to wait at least another season.

ZubenPlease stop that. This thread is about dogs, not dawgs.

There's no need to get racist.

A "need?" Well, no. There's no "need".

BigwigI picked up a player last night off waivers who was ranked high because I was tired and just looking for anyone at the PF position. I just noticed it was Kevin Durant. Now, he's useless this week (most likely). But who released him? I assume we don't hold that against somebody for keepers, right?

The rosters "locked" at the trade deadline. That means those rosters then are the players an owner can keep for next year.

Hey, the East is actually fun. I'm a fan of how Boston, Washington, LeBron, and Toronto all play.

HurricaneKid, I'm leery of stating this with absolute certainty because I don't think Yahoo has updated their stats to official status since Tuesday (!), but a LOT would have to gone wrong for me not to make it into the Finals. The stats would have to be WAY off, so I'm over 99% sure that I am in.

It's not much, but a win this week scores us $100 and then we play for an additional $75 next week.

JeanHi guys. I'm going to try to pay more attention to baseball this year.

Hey, Jean. I will not be paying more attention to the MLB this season.

briggmI like Linares, but Mikey Garcia wipes him out in 6-8.

Mikey Garcia has a lot of quality wins, but then he had that surreal extended absence due to his fighting with his promoter where he lost two-and-a-half years of his prime career. For the life of me, I will never be able to understand that career move.

I watched both fights Garcia has had since his return. The first fight against Elio Rojas showed some ring rust, but he also showed just how damn talented and powerful he is. Then in his last fight against my very good friend Dejan Zlaticanin, Garcia showed why he is the best fighter at that weight. I agree with you that Garcia takes Linares's belts from him. I would actually like to see Zlaticanin in against Linares as I could see a lot of different possible outcomes in that fight.

I also would love to see any of those three guys mix it up with Nicholas Walters or Orlando Salido. Lightweight has a bunch of hard-hitting, come-forward fighters, and we could see some absolute wars and a bunch of knockouts.


Your Twitter pal Zlaticanin is garbage, man. :D

But those lightweights all fighting is certainly more likely this year/next year than previously.

Eddie Hearn has been/is matching practically every one of his established fighters in risky, 50-50 type fights, Moses. Brook/Spence, Joshua/Wlad, Bellew/Haye, Crolla/Linares, Ricky Burns/Indongo. PBC have thrown out a lot of these kinds of fights as well the last couple of years, with Thurman/Garcia, Dirrell/Degale, and numerous others. I think the landscape's changing and we're gonna see more and more of this, finally.

One correction here -- Dejan and I are tight. Personal friend of mine. Caleb Truax as well.

Dejan and I were talking the other day about how he handily defeated Ricky Burns and how this set back against Mikey Garcia is only going to make Dejan stronger. We shared a really nice couple of moments there.

Briggm, we are a couple of weekends away from Vasyl Lomachenko fighting Jason Sosa. Vasyl likes belts, and Sosa had the WBA "regular" championship belt, but he decided to surrender it for some reason before the fight. That's disappointing for Loma. I was hoping he would pick up the black and gold strap which he could wear with his WBO belt. That black belt would have helped highlight some of Loma's strong Slavic features, but it was not meant to be. That's alright. Maybe in his next fight, Panamaian Jezreel Corrales will hand over his version of the WBC title and Loma can start cleaning up this 130 lbs. division.

Crolla is getting through to him though. This isn't unlike their last fight. Linares is more talented, but Crolla is very scrappy.
