    Last minor league game I watched was on TV. Roger Clemens pitched a game for the Sugarland Skeeters when he was 50.

    Take a look at the notable alumni. I was able to see a lot of them play.

    that was pretty cool watching the game live when the quake hit. 7.1 is no joke.

    That wasn't an earthquake. It wass the aftershock from a Zion dunk.

    I look at Zion and the reaction to him and I can't help but make comparisons in my mind to Ricky Williams. So much hype, so ridiculous were the expectations, and what really went wrong is that the league bought into it as well. Every team to play the Saints during the Ricky years made stopping Ricky their first, second, third and fourth priorities, and he accomplished nothing. The Pels will really need Jrue, Redick, Favors and co. to command respect from their opponents from the first game forward, because Zion's going to get triple teamed from the moment he enters the arena.

    Too be fair Ricky gained 1000 yards in all 3 seasons he was a Saint.

    kavell has looked magnificent in summer league. he runs great, works hard, dunks with authority. seems like a real NBA player.
