Transaction Ideas and Rumors / Re: Get them both
« Last post by LarBrd33 on Today at 04:17:52 PM »
Why are you completely gutting our frontcourt depth? I get why both Atlanta and Houston might need a useful big man coming back for the rest of the season, therefore Amir and Sully might have to go. Then there's the fact that Lee and Jerebko might be needed for salary purposes to get both. Actually, wait, no, the minimum we could send out is Amir to Atlanta and Lee + Sully to Houston. No reason not to hold onto Zeller. Little reason to let go of Jerebko. Whatever trade value they add can be replaced with one of this year's 2nds.
Who needs those bums when we have Jordan Mickey and Olynyk. 

Lol jk

Wait is this official news or just what you think he should do?  Can't watch the video right now.

I don't think this is official.

It's not, I read the vertical article a few weeks ago. He has a very easy buyout and if this was true it would be all over Twitter.

My experience has always been that teacher evaluations were meant to be anonymous and that teachers weren't supposed to see them.

Is that not the case where you teach, Potter?

Seems odd.
I heard the same exact thing. At my old community college, one of the professors who gave me a good letter of recommendation asked me not to worry about evaluations. Rarely does it ever really hinder or become a nuisance unless the classes continuously seem to fail expectations or students give terrible ratings. But it has to be on a large scale from what I heard. (Professor was also not supposed to disclose this information to me, but she didn't seem like she cared that about losing her job, since she was an excellent professor who engaged her students, and consistently had excellent academic results.)
Evaluations ARE anonymous, but of course you're able to see them. In fact, you usually get the whole stack of papers (after the semester concludes). They're feedback. Not being able to see in what area your students find you deficient defeats the purpose.

It varies by school, but I've always gotten at least a summary report. If you can make handwriting and have a sufficiently small class, you should be able to tell who gave you a certain piece of (handwritten) feedback.
They really need to be computerized. Silly that they are still handwritten.

TPs all around. Thanks for the encouragement and advice, guys. It's nice to know that others deal with these problems and get through them, too.

Smitty, I'm teaching in the humanities, mainly ethics, logic, and critical writing/thinking. I'm hoping to develop some more courses in healthcare ethics (what my PhD is, or will be, in) and philosophy of religion in the near future. What do you guys teach?
Ethics, especially bioethics/healthcare ethics, can be tough as critically examining ethics will makes some people feel uncomfortable. Not surprising if a student claims personal attacks because they have a hard time facing their feelings. While there are good and bad approaches to handling such problems with fragile students, the students still need to justify arguments if they are going to learn how to think.

I would be surprised if the C's didn't get one of them and I don't think getting both is out of the questions.

I'm talking about 10 pounds per offseason.  3 years from now (when he's 26 years old) he'd be 30 pounds lighter (from 280-290 to 250-260).  How much do you need him to lose?

Intermittent aerobics for a total of 20 minutes a night for 3 nights a week is hardly anything, and much less than the average "fit" or "in shape" person does.

And we're not exactly talking anything more than light aerobics here (don't compare his activity on the court to IT).  Less than half of the game is spent running up/down the court, and much of that time "running up the court" is really either jogging or walking up the court.  The clock runs after scored baskets, eating up several minutes that you're in the game.  And there's lots of standing around in the half court, not to mention tons of breaks due to fouls/fts/out of bounds/time outs/turnovers/replay reviews/commercials/end of periods/etc.

Eating disorder/thyroid problem isn't the only explanation.

You could just be seeing what every person with a slower than average metabolism has to deal with.

I imagine Sullinger eats relatively close to what the average PF/C with significant muscle mass eats in the NBA (2750-3500 calories).  For someone who probably doesn't do much, if any, physical activity outside of games and practice so as to remain as fresh as possible for games, it's not hard to see why he's maintaining his weight.  I think that lack of activity is normal among most players due to the grueling schedules and physicality of games.

And remember, just because he's not losing weight by being forced to run hard and often, that doesn't mean he's not getting in "better shape."  (speed, quickness, agility, stamina, vertical, lateral, explosiveness, etc.)

Do you resign both?

Let's also trade Bradley, Turner and Young for Gallo and go all-in on a title.

PG - Thomas
SG - Crowder
SF - Gallo
PF - Horford
C - Howard
-----
6th man - Smart
7th man - Olynyk
8th man - Mickey
9th man - Rozier
10th man - Hunter
11th man - [Post Buyout talent]
12th man - [Post buyout talent]

We then win a title and next year every team tries to replicate our "1 Munchkin and 4 Giants" lineup. 

Lol... that makes no sense.  But it's kind of funny we could give up 9 guys for 3 guys and still field an interesting team.
