Thomas Gardner-went to Missouri, but grew up and won 4A state championship in Oregon.

Way to reign on my post that came over an hour before yours

I'll just post my thoughts I had in the other thread and delete the other thread:

Not as exciting as rosters of previous years. Bayless is the only name that stands out as a special player, so I'm wondering if he'll repeat as league MVP. However, I've heard the Blazer's brass may have him try playing the point more than simply scoring at will like he did last year. Also, I don't know how many games that team will win and I cannot remember how much they take wins into consideration for MVP in this league. Oh, and Bayless is still the youngest guy on the team.

Really hoping patty mills can still get lots of minutes with bayless playing, im not familiar with bayless game but can he play/defends sgs? Could have mills/bayless 1/2 Im just really excited to see a healthy patty play again, anyone who watched him play at the olympics knows that he could turn into a slightly poorer mans tony parker.

A Mills/Bayless combo would be EXTREMELY fast!!! I'll be more interested however in how the three "bigs", Pendergraph, Padgett and Akindele do. We need a third big behind Joel and Greg.

Little dissapointed that we don't have either Freeland or Koponen on these rosters - guess they'll stay in Europe another year.

I'm really excited about seeing Cunningham play, he could do some good things off the bench.

Well, Bayless, Pendergraph, and Cunningham all had good games. Though, I was only able to see the 1st and much of the 3rd.
