.Tebow's listed as a QB behind Brady and Mallet, but you're a fool if you buy into anything Bill Belichick is trying to sell you in the middle of June as genuine strategies for the regular season. I'm with Mike Freeman of CBS.
Tim Tebow will sign with New England, source confirms to me. Plan, I'm told, is Tebow will study a great deal at tight end.— mike freeman (@realfreemancbs) June 10, 2013
Gronk went from Summer of...to Summer of...surgery. He may have just been a shooting star with his best days behind him.
It's very easy for me to envision Hernandez move from an h-back-ish type role to more of a receiving role like Gronk, and Tebow becomes the player who was all over formations as Hernandez was.
I can also see Tebow not making the Patriots, and Gronk STILL be a non factor due to all those surgeries.
.Here's my perturbed thoughts about Mo Cheeks becoming the latest Pistons head coach.
W/o the ability 2 attract potential/resident stars, it was imperative the #pistons get a HC that can succeed w/o them. I think they failed.— Eric Chase (@Eric_Chase) June 11, 2013
You care to connect the 76ers dots from Cheeks to Iguodala? Fine. Iguodala is truly one of the league's elite one on one defenders, and he can finish with as much power and flash as even Lebron, but creating his own shot and knocking down jumpers are not strengths of his. Keep that in mind when Iguodala is seeking a larger deal than the one he may be opting out of in Denver.
40% from 3-9 feet (Brandon Knight for comps was 31)
33% from 10-15 feet (56)
31% from 16-23 feet (33)
32% on 3s (37)
.Don't misinterpret this tweet from Zach Lowe.
With Mo Cheeks taking DET job, per @espnsteinline, would kindly suggest OKC hire an offensive guru as key assistant to Brooks.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) June 10, 2013
It means OKC should be looking for an offensive guru, not to replace what Cheeks provided, but because Scott Brooks now has an opening to hire an offensive coordinator. Often, his offense was lambasted as being too predictable, unimaginative, and far too relient on what's probably the two best 1 on 1 players in the league. In other words, get someone who can draw up some offense.
