Under the Boards

You'll be happy to know, apropos of Bengo's comments below that we're already crafting an event at the mothership. It's currently slated for May 17th, more details to come.

Quick hit here. Reading Marc Stein yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to see him having Ben Gordon going to the All Star game. As guard-rich as the east is, I really have to agree. First, Stein points out that you can't really have teams in the top tier of the conference without an all-star (that is, team performance should be rewarded) and Gordon's one of the most electric players in the East, and also, I'd wager one of the more valuable. There aren't many guards who can fill it up like he can, and have such knack for clutch shooting. He's also greatly improved his defense and passing and cut down on the turnovers. I also feel pretty strongly that if BenGo doesn't make it, they'll be no Chicago representation in Vegas. For the first month of the season I thought Deng would be a shoo-in, but he's slowed down a bit, and become less agressive scoring the ball. My namesake will make an All-Star game before his NBA career is over. Mark my words. But it's clearly not happening this year.

Curious what other TYI'ers think.

(Anyone wanna start a pool on when I finally given in and purchase an ESPN subscription so I can read all those tasty morsels hidden behind the orange paywall?)

I think it's pretty obvious I'd like to see Ben make it. He deserves it.

My guess is they won't take him and Deng, but you can make an argument for Luol based mostly around how piss-poor Eastern Conf. forwards are. Bosh and BronBron are solid, but there's quite a drop off after that. Stein has Caron Butler, who's having a nice season, and then Jermaine O'Neal, who I guess is a good PF, but he's also a shoo-in for the Lewbowski (Under)Achiever Team. If you're taking another forward, I think it's gotta be Deng. Even if he wasn't injured, Jefferson was having only a so-so season, and I can't think of anyone else (3 or 4) who deserves it over Luol.

I've heard Insider access is one of those things that seems a lot better when you don't have it. My roommate had it for a little bit and said it was nothing special. But then again, he's not an NBA fan. I'll give you two weeks.

I think Ben should be voted in, too. Hopefully, the Redd injury will cement his spot. I agree with BenGo about the forwards, but something tells me that a team who hasn't had an all-star since MJ won't get two.

As for Insider, my roommates all split it a few years ago and it's pretty nice, but I used it far less than I thought I would. A few things behind the wall are nice to have (ie, draft boards, Simmons' archives, Chad Forde's blog) but it wasn't all that much of a benefit. Two weeks sounds about right, though.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

I am an African American woman with naturally kinky/coarse hair. I decided to stop using

relaxers over a year ago, furthermore straightening my hair became a difficult task. I could never seem to get the results I was looking for out of a flat iron without going to a professional hair salon and

spending $65.00 a visit. I previously used FHI ceramic flat irons which straightened my hair and then left it frizzy again within the next hour. A hairstylist friend of mines suggested the Babyliss Pro

Titanium irons. I purchased them from Amazon for $70 bucks and received them in about 5 days. "A miracle!!" I can't live without them now. My hair goes from frizzy/kinky to silky/straight/shiny in the blink

of an eye. The best part is that it "STAYS" silky and straight until the next time I need to wash and straighten. No gimmic here. I highly recommend them over chi and fhi.

I never thought it could be possible. I own about 7-9 hair straighteners from cheap to deluxe. Not one of them could

penetrate my thick, curly hair enough to do anything other than heat up the cuticle and make sizzling noises. This iron is going to change my life. I spent 700 on ionic straightening, and this iron works

better!!!! If you spend any amount of time wielding a heavy blow dryer, forget about it. I used this iron on Air-dried, curly hair. I wish I could upload a digital photo- I look like a hair commercial.

Unbelievable but true!!! I LOVE IT!!!

I absolutely love this flat iron! I get compliments on how

healthy my hair looks, even from my hair dresser. It straightens and curls without damaging. I compared it to the Chi and the Chi didn't stand a chance, left my hair semi-frizzy and creased and the nano pro

left my hair shiny and smooth. Extra long plates cut my routine in half... I refer this product to everyone!!!

My stylist recommended this product for my medium to long hair that tends to have some wave and frizz. I

have never had a flat iron, but I can successfully get the smooth, straight look I want in 7 minutes, and my hair is pretty thick. The iron heats up in one minute, and is easy to use because of its slim

design. I would recommend not starting at anything beyond the 35-40 setting to start with or you may really damage your hair. Other than that, this is a great purchase and I'm happy to have it!

I suffer from curly, frizzy, wild hair.. I have tried every product imaginable and this is the best product

out there.. It takes about a minute to heat and run it through each handful of hair once and your hair is perfect.. it will stay smooth and frizz free not to mention straight as a board until u wash your

hair next(even if u wait 3 days).. Please buy this product if u don't believe me.
