    I still am gonna put my vote down for Pocket Rockets, but I also wanted to add that one thing my friend and I used last night was Clone Wars 2. The original Clone Wars was what we used to called that Don Nelson Warriors team that had Baron Davis and a whole bunch of other decent but not great wing players that eventually took down the 1 seed Mavericks. They were really fun to watch and the style was “Clone Wars” because if you squinted hard it was difficult to tell who was who: the parts were interchangeable. But even that team had Biedrins as the lone undersized big clogging the paint trying to get all their rebounds. This Rockets team obviously isn’t interchangeable in terms of who initiates the offense, but everyone shoots threes so in times of chaos it can function similarly. There have been vestiges of this style going back a couple decades now, but no one has ever fully taken the plunge and cut the cord on the center completely like this. It feels like as a kid the first time you ever swam in the deep end without holding onto the side.

    Rocket Girl on Twitter last night: "The 6'6" Underdogs." - it is possible I did not quote her verbatim, but the gist is there. I liked it. I did not feel like digging up her tweet right now.
