    The 2016 Presidential campaign officially starts tomorrow. Almost a year before the first vote is cast.

    So anybody who doesnt pay property taxes, directly or indirectly - and that includes most college students, who are of legal voting age - should not be allowed to vote in those same elections, according to your logic. Interesting. And anybody who rents an apartment, and that includes people of any citizenship status, pays property taxes, albeit indirectly.

    7th St is much more developed these days, but for Farrington to be a viable facility in the way angelo suggests would require a AGCS-type rebuild, with all the bell and whistles that go with it. As is, Farrington is already the home of the FW Vaqueros of the NPSL. Toyota Park isnt the only competition - the DeathStar has become a regular stop for international games.

    He's 28 and in AA. His trade value is minimal. A release after the season is more probable, especially after 6 years in the same organization.

    While I tend to agree, remember he's already given up 30+ million or more by forcing the trade (no more super max). Logic isnt necessarily a player in this soap opera.

    The plot thickens. Chris Haynes of ESPN.com first reported Leonard "has no desire to play" with the Raptors, and Sean Deveney of Sporting News later reportedsomething similar. Deveney also reports there have been hints that Leonard is willing to sit out the entire season "if necessary." From Sporting News:

    Hard to see the 1st rd pick not becoming 2 #2's. Big risk for Toronto, and I'm not sure this makes them better. Think the Spurs would have gotten more from the deal the Lakers offered, but they didnt want to send him to a West rival. But then this may only delay that one year. Hard to see either team coming out a big winner here. The San Antonio Spurs have agreed to trade Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to the Toronto Raptors for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick, league sources tell ESPN. Toronto's first-round pick to San Antonio is a protected 1-20 selection. After one year, it becomes two second-round picks.

    And of course I post this and it comes out this morning that the Raptors may be close to a deal involving DeMar DeRozan.

    NBA opinions

    Sounding more and more like the Spurs arent going to get full value in a Leonard trade. The Lakers are going to continue to wait it out because they think they can sign him as a free agent, and both the Sixers and Celts are offering mostly draft picks. Other teams are interesting, but everybody thinks Leonard is going to be a rental. And then there's this.... There is a belief the 76ers have better insight into Kawhi Leonard's medical history than even the Spurs because team orthopedic surgeon Jonathan Glashow, who is based in New York, is one of the primary outside physicians Leonard has been seeing.

    Frogs in the 2018 NBA Summer League

    And since someone will ask.... Each team has 2 slots on their roster for a 'two-way' player. Those players will spend the bulk of their time in the G League, but can play up to 45 days with their NBA team. More money involved (75K, up to a max of 200K if they play the 45 days), but unlike most of the other G League players, they are committed to their NBA team. Any other player could be signed by any other NBA team if the need arises. About 30 players have 2 way deals for this season, with Denver currently having one under contract with one open slot. Cleveland has signed their 2, so Vlad's chances to sign with the Cavs are virtually zero.

    https://www.denverpost.com/2018/07/14/denver-nuggets-summer-league-finale-minnesota/ Williams aggressive. Kenrich Williams has spent much of summer league in the starting lineup, and has made a consistent impact with his defensive play and rebounding. But he had been quiet offensively until Friday, when he scored 17 points on 8-of-14 shooting. He looked confident in driving to the basket, pulling up from mid-range and firing from beyond the arc. It was a bit of a surprise that the 6-foot-7, 210-pound Williams was not drafted, after averaging 13.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game during his final college season. But he could still be a contender to land a two-way contract with an NBA team.

    That got me thinking about the Big 12 and the Final 4, so I did a little research. Not surprisingly, Kansas dominates things. The schools of the current Big 12 have made the Final 4 38 times, with KU accounting for 15 of those appearances. Prior to 1965, current B12 schools appeared 20 times (KU 4), since 1965, 18 appearances, with Kansas accounting for a rather astounding 11 trips. Tech and TCU are the only schools without an appearance, but KState hasnt been back since 1964, and Baylor (1948, 1950) and ISU (1944) havent been there since the NCAA surpassed the NIT as the predominant post-season tournament.

    TCU to begin selling beer at Lupton Stadium

    TCU coach Gary Patterson has not committed to naming Shawn Robinson his starting quarterback, and TCU won’t commit to selling beer at its football games just yet, either. Both are inevitable, but the latter is at least one year away. At least. Per TCU director of athletics Jeremiah Donati, beer sales at TCU football games won’t be happening in 2018. The earliest TCU fans can expect to buy beer at home football games is 2019, when the new $100 million Amon G. Carter Stadium east side club project is complete. But even 2019 doesn’t sound like a sure thing. Donati is taking this process slow, mostly because of concerns relating to a now pass-out policy that would come with beer sales. TCU wants to join the growing number of Big 12 schools, and other programs nationally, that sell beer at its home games but it’s taking a more of a toe-in-the-water approach to changing the culture of its in-game experience. TCU had previously made beer available to fans in club level suite seating. In late April, TCU announced plans to sell beer for the final seven home baseball games. Also included in that announcement was to end its pass-out policy, which allows fans to come and go as they wish. TCU deliberately selected the weakest part of the baseball schedule to try out the new policy so the plan would be a success. Both the no pass-out and beer sales at the baseball games went without a problem, and that will remain a part of the scene at Lupton Stadium for the future. The plan was to try selling beer at baseball games with the target of eventually expanding the two policies to basketball and football games. There is a good chance the school will try out beer sales at basketball games for the 2018-19 season. The only concern regarding that policy is the close proximity of fans to the playing surface. Once basketball is added then football is next. That happens when its latest project is done. Sources said that more than $60 million of the necessary funding to build the east side stadium club area is complete; the athletic department needs to raise $80 million while the school will contribute the remaining $20 million. The plan is to open the area well in advance of the 2019 season. The area will be able to seat 800 people, and TCU is targeting the space to be available for events outside of football. The space will be available to rent for weddings, parties, banquets, etc. TCU has discussed including in the space a year-round restaurant. Enthusiasm for this part of the plan is mild, at best. Donati envisions a day when beer is available at Amon G. Carter Stadium for football games for, but the timeline is slow. At Big 12 media days, Commissioner Bob Bowlsby was asked for his thoughts on the increase of alcohol sales at the league’s member schools. “Institutions are left to their own discretion and, as you know, some (have gone) forward with it and some have not,” he said. “It’s largely a matter of institutional culture. From a personal standpoint, I do think that probably it’s selling alcohol in the stadium is probably superior to having pass-outs at halftime where everybody goes out and power drinks for the length of the halftime. “I think from a game management standpoint it’s better managed with a controlled environment inside but reasonable people can disagree on it.” TCU fans can expect to be able to buy a beer at a home football game, but it just won’t be this year. And don’t hold your breath on next year, either.
