        Damn it.

        I liked the new Wizards Logo until I read that comment. Now I can't stop seeing it.

            Let's go!

            I want DD to post up Beal a lot. If Pierce ends up guarding him, blow by his old legs each time

                interesting with the new logo. Especially given the uproar over Toronto's new logo. It really seems like the league is heading towards advertising on uniforms and team logos will appear in standard circular patches

                  Last year was Rocky



                  This year is Rocky 2




                  (if anyone can photoshop Kyle for Rocky and Pierce for Apollo...feel free to)

                    Raps are 7-5 in their last 12 with losses to Pistons, Celtics x2 & Nets. 1 win against a +.500 opponent. I'm scared.

                    Going for Raps in 7.

                      Or they are 7-3 in their last 10 and beat the only above-500 team they faced in that stretch. Fun with numbers!
