If JT finds his way and returns to his 2014 form the bucks should beat all these teams.  Very interested in what Coach Wilson brings to the party.  Expect the defense to be at least serviceable if not very good.

Wow ... criticizing 11W for being political then bringing up the abortion issue, and then justifying black people being shot in the back by police officers because more "people" die from abortion than from police gun fire?!  Sick AND hypocritical, congrats.

QCB I believe in civil discourse but when it comes to life-and-death issues like this I get passionate ... maybe that's a nice word for me being an a**hole LOL.  No personal attacks meant to you or anyone else, just me venting on a forum about an issue I have strong opinions about.  I'm kind of a current events junkie and the civil rights movement is something that has impacted me as a small child watching black-and-white TV and seeing black people walking over a bridge getting spit on, hosed down and trampled by police on horses and trying to make sense of it (sadly, I'm that freakin' old).  Apologies to one-and-all for my strong language.  In my defense ... I didn't say nuthin' bad about anyone's mama.  :]

No DV from me but I'm guessing because to some people it's a flippant response.  It's similar to people who at a site where a black person was shot in the back by a police officer show up with "Blue Lives Matter" signs.  Of course all lives matter, but that's not the point, the point is the statistically provable racial inequality of the American justice system.

On a lighter note as I have expressed my opinion with as much conviction as I can ... when I first glanced at the article all I saw was "I hope I don't get killed ... " and my initial thought was that a recruit was witnessing a Coach Marotti led workout LOL.

Can you be any more cliched and out-of-touch?  The statistics are clear that a black person is far more likely to be stopped, arrested, or killed by law enforcement than a white person in the same situation.  That's why I donate to Black Lives Matter.  And don't kid yourself, there is plenty of crime committed by white people.  But whatever narrative helps you sleep at night.

Seriously?!  Good lord ... what cave have you been living in?  Just today there was news about a settlement in the Ferguson incident and the video of the Castile shooting was released.  If you have not seen that video I highly recommend you do so.  There have been questionable shooting of blacks by white police almost weekly in this country.  Don't get me wrong, the VAST majority of police officers are honorable and brave public servants, but dude, really, I love sports and all but I also keep up on current events and try to have an objective perspective of what is going on in our country, the good, the bad and the ugly.

The message is loud and clear to me, no explanation required, and if you don't get the point you haven't been keeping up on current events much less the history of civil rights in this country.

Some 11dubers fixate on Harbaugh too much.  He has invited a broad spectrum of people to be "celebrity" captains if you take the time to dig into all the invites.  Who cares and what does it matter?  Urban Meyer made public who he supported in the 2016 election.  I did not see a public outcry about that.  I suspect even though the OP stated this post was not political, I'm guessing it was and it irritated him.  Why else would someone care and point out that a former president was being invited to act in this capacity?

Good question AND point as in tennis the majors are best three out of five (for the men) as opposed to best two out of three sets for the non-majors and one of the majors (Wimbledon) is on grass, kind of an unusual surface (although there are a couple of tune up events on grass).  And ... the majors last two weeks, regular tournaments only one week (slams start out with 128 players, regular tournaments have 64 players).

And ... you may not care in the least about tennis.  :)
