Under Gary Anderson night he went from two wins a 40 is now going into that second off season what are some of the top story lines are looking for here it's spring practice.

And I've been call hallmark couple times this I don't really care but.

be made that part of game. It reminds me of someone of DamonStoudamire and on his career he had a lot of people made a comparison early on after his first couple years with Stoudemire did comparing it to Willard and of the numbers this kind of shaken out that we might as the assist numbers he assistant at the points per game have gone up for game throughout his career yet they didn't do that firm for Stoudemire to know there's not a Meyer ended up having more pieces around him as his career when all and dame also. DamonStoudamire says and I Damien. Damon is hovered around for the first couple years he hover around nineteen to twenty yeah. Any still
have struggled to meet their tendency is third to the bottom the NationalHockeyLeague . On this the fourth straight year that they haven't made the playoffs so it is very tough for them here in this
want to stay here they want to make it worked its. The NationalHockeyLeague I believe also want to make it work this is the fifth or sixth largest. Natural market in the country. No look at the choral conductor I was born I look forward they I grew up there went to order for the high school . This is a bigger market that the NationalHockeyLeague would rather Spain and they go to Portland or Seattle. And so there is also another legal reason why they wanted to
all know we are out there are so soured Diddy had the Denver Nuggets let's continue with our new foreign friendly serious talking about playing for TerryStotts . Like I said I'm gonna do with our state coach thank you do best better for like all of both fewer amount.
shots at Denver he did take one more veiled shot to the Denver Nuggets his former team he said the nuggets held him back. Definitely you know members do a lot of more stuff you know they can hold me down. You know I was and would love him I'm here to show. With the coach and import car assuming that hole or cargo so I'm gonna be news in movies and it's worked and now be patient. And another tell them back he's excited to play for with Daimler and see Jim colonies had to do whatever TerryStotts once and do what role do you wanna see use of our connection for the Portland TrailBlazer controlled the paint defensively and
just to see how a player of his. It's dial. Fits and TerryStotts offense can we talk about the some money in swagger concluded because of the Fed and that the biggest part of the trade is known that was the first from peck. Nobody's gonna disagree with that. But just to see what a lumbering seven foot center that doesn't move that doesn't space the floor the complacent defense how it fits in a TerryStotts well I. I think are designed dusting him they were talking about the last Hamad traditional senator and by the NBA standards
And what would you do would you want your team to take AdrianPeterson . Trade form 32 years old we'll talk about the next apple news and notes on 1080 defense and the way that they
some outlets are reporting. Because of how much it's gonna cost that AdrianPeterson could be available. On the market to other teams would you want AdrianPeterson who missed thirteen games last season. And is turning 32 years old next month. This finishing got to watch the offseason. I. And I know running backs at that proverbial wall usually around the age of thirty and then there's pretty good. There's there's a lot of statistical history to back it up that once guys sit that certain age it is can't do it anymore. If anybody could go win a B AdrianPeterson and in terms of an every down back and relying on him as an offense no. And I think that's where the fit Minnesota's just not there anymore and they Sam Bradford is not enough as a quarterback Tim. Jerry your your offense completely they need some help from the run game and that really showed. Late in the season and got banged up beat and have a lot of protection they could run the ball like they could but AdrianPeterson . And it just didn't work out so if you're in a situation where you don't need him to run the ball 2530 times a game here not expecting that kind of workload. And you put him in the right fit. I would absolutely. Take a chance and AdrianPeterson I don't think I would. Because I worry about the proverbial wall I worry about the injuries coming off the racquet whatever I don't I know that we just talked about a lot about give them a place like New England were you given fifteen carries in week twelve to fifteen touches a week you know I wonder she's more Stephen Jackson at the end Stephen Jackson's career now your not all guys were able to do they indexing content out there never Corey Dylan Null.
