    The grand experiment in Charlotte is off to a very rocky start — the Hornets (4-12) have played well below pre-season expectations, and are riding an ugly seven-game losing streak. To make matters worse, free agent acquisition Lance Stephenson now finds himself in head coach Steve Clifford’s doghouse. Born Ready has been benched in the fourth quarter of the past two games, and Clifford called out the 24-year old swingman Wednesday night following a 105-97 defeat to the visiting Portland Trail Blazers. Per the Charlotte Observer: Asked about not playing these past two fourth quarters,…

    A practice in October was winding down, but before USF men’s basketball coach Rex Walters called an end to it, the Dons began another intrasquad, five-on-five scrimmage. These were the pulse of an astounding offseason of work. On one team was Frankie Ferrari, a highly touted freshman point guard and local product, listed at 5-11, 160 pounds. On this occasion, he was tasked with guarding Matt Glover, a senior, known across the Hilltop as ‘Jumbo’, as much a reference to his 6-5, 212-pound frame as it is to his ability to muscle into the lane at will. Which Glover wasted no…

    The 2014 NBA Draft saw the Cleveland Cavaliers again win the right to choose first. Last year they acquired Anthony Bennett, who has gone down in recent memory as one of the worst draft picks. This year the Cavs, who are the favorites to win the NBA Championships with Betfair, picked up Andrew Wiggins. However, you won’t be seeing him in a Cleveland jersey, as he was traded alongside Bennett to the Minnesota Timberwolves in return for Kevin Love.

    When the San Antonio Spurs took on the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday, they weren't led by legendary longtime coach Gregg Popovich, whom the Spurs ruled out after undergoing a "minor medical procedure." (The recovery might keep Popovich sidelined into the weekend, too.) Taking Pop's place at the head of the defending champions' bench? Ettore Messina, the international coaching legend who joined the Spurs as an assistant this summer.

Perhaps we were affected by the second hand smoke of a Chicago Bulls fan that clearly appears to be vaping some sort of smokable substance during Tuesday night’s Bulls/Nuggets game: As a Bulls fan and non-smoker, I can still understand the motivation to inhale such a substance after watching Derrick Rose sit out yet another half due to injury. Recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado, though the 2012 law passed to legalize the drug prohibits users from smoking in public – similar to open…

He was running the floor hard, attacking the glass and finishing everything around the hoop, finishing the first quarter with 12 points (6-7 shooting), five rebounds and two blocks.

Not only are the points Eric raises good ones, but he also does well in actually articulating the issue and providing solutions to the problems. – 42)) Less Pick and Roll “Drive or Bust.” I’d like to see a little more probing once the Pelicans have their defenders out of position on the PnR.

    Tonight you saw the true impact of Eric Gordon being out of the game.  Now, before you get all excited and say things like “Have you seen Gordon play this year?” or “We’ll really miss his 4 baskets and 1 rebound a game!” hear me out. What we saw tonight, particularly in the fourth, was a team trying to put together new offensive sets while missing one key ingredient:  the decoy.  Gordon hasn’t been great, but he’s been a key ingredient in every non-simple pick and roll.  He’s either moving to a flare position as a threat, or he’s one…

    25 Nov 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a torn labrum. Depending on whether he needs surgery or not, Gordon could miss two weeks, or the majority of the season. He has started all 12 games this season, averaging 9.5 points per game on 39.8% shooting from the field, 34.1% from beyond the arc, and 1.2 steals per game on 31 minutes a night. Over the last five games, Gordon was shooting 57.1% from the field and 58.8% from beyond the arc. On a team that has had some issues with depth, it will be interesting to see how they will adjust. I am sticking with options that are currently on the team. Omer…

Injuries are starting to crop up, and tonight’s game is no exception.  On the Kings side, Collison, Gay and Ramon Sessions are all questionable for the game due to various ailments.  For the Pelicans, Gordon is out and Asik is questionable. The answer as to who will start tonight in relief of Eric Gordon, at least, is no longer a mystery.  Darius Miller, who started…

Do you think this is what Monty will do? Mason Ginsberg: This may be a dark horse candidate, but I’m going with Jimmer Fredette. Early in the season, I wrote about injecting him into the starting lineup in an attempt to give Gordon a spark by playing against opposing teams’ second units. While Jimmer brings next to nothing on the defensive end, he is a better shooter than Gordon, and…

    It's Thanksgiving, so I'm giving thanks for a few things. Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you're able to enjoy this day with your loved ones.  Since it's Thanksgiving, it felt like a good time to give my thanks for a few things. I'm thankful for the standard things, of course.  My wife, my son.  My family, my loved ones, my friends.  But let's spend some time focused on basketball, shall we? I'm thankful that we still have the Sacramento Kings I'm thankful for the Kings' hot start I'm thankful for Boogie and Rudy and Darren and Omri and Ben and Ray and Nik and Jason and Carl and Reggie and,…
  • Rockets 102, Kings 89: Kings run out of gas late*

    26 Nov 2014 | 8:01 pm
    The Kings stormed back from an early 20 point deficit, but could not string together enough well-executed possessions down the stretch to climb the mountain. The second night of a back-to-back on the road is usually tough; if you're playing in the Western Conference, that usually means playing a good to great team, and its paramount to play focused all game. Unfortunately for the Sacramento Kings, there just weren't enough stretches of good play, as they fell to the Houston Rockets by a final score of 102-89. The Kings were led again by DeMarcus Cousins, who was able to take advantage of the…

    The Sacramento Kings today announced that both Rudy Gay (right Achilles tendinitis) and Darren Collison (left quadriceps contusion) will remain inactive for the second straight game as the Kings prepare to face the Houston Rockets tonight.  Meanwhile Ramon Sessions, who was listed as questionable the day before the Pelicans game, was upgraded to probable for tonight's game against Houston. Sacramento received big contributions from several players in Rudy and Collison's absence yesterday against the New Orleans Pelicans.  Omri Casspi got his first start of the season and responded with a…

    Sacramento remains undefeated on this four game road trip after a good win in New Orleans yesterday.  Houston is missing several starters due to injury, but they're still one of the better teams in the NBA and they love to shoot from distance.  Tonight's action tips off at 5:00 pm tonight on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. The status on Kings starters Rudy Gay and Darren Collison is unknown, but Sacramento was able to pull out a good win without them yesterday in New Orleans.  Houston on the other hand is suffering even more serious injuries, with…

    Share what you're thankful for on this day. It's Thanksgiving Day (for our American readers, anyway) and we're going to mark the occasion by giving you a chance to share what you're thankful for. Naturally we're mostly talking about Trail Blazers related thanks, but if you want to branch out to other NBA topics or even just life in general, what the heck...it's a holiday, right?

    On an night when the Hornets focused defensive attention on LaMarcus Aldridge, the Blazers guards showed them why that's a big no-no. Two basketball bloggers walk into a music store. Blogger A turns to Blogger B and says, "I could run circles around your analysis with my eyes closed." Blogger B considers for a second then responds, "I'll concede the point if you can pass my analysis test." "I can pass any test you want. Let me at it." Blogger B looks around the store, then picks out a ukulele and a bass drum. Turning to Blogger A he says, "Tell me which one of these best represents the…

    Portland overcame a cold shooting night by LaMarcus Aldridge to fight past the Charlotte Hornets. Wednesday night at Charlotte, the Blazers proved that they did not need LaMarcus Aldridge to be shooting well to win the game. Wesley Matthews had 28, Damian Lillard had 22 and Portland overcame a rough second quarter and a 3-of-18 shooting night for Aldridge to beat the Charlotte Hornets, 105-97 at the Wells Fargo Center. Portland got out to fast start, opening up a nine point advantage with a 13-4 run.  It was too early to celebrate, as Aldridge went cold for the rest of the quarter, shooting…

    Frank Madden
    27 Nov 2014 | 9:55 am
    A year after finding inventive new ways to lose, the Milwaukee Bucks are suddenly finding ways to win -- and somewhat comfortably at that. As they did on Tuesday night at home against the Pistons, the Bucks played a tight game for three-plus quarters in Minnesota on Wednesday night, watching the depleted Timberwolves stay in the game thanks to a huge advantage at the foul line. But once again the Bucks looked like a veteran team in the fourth quarter, locking down the young Wolves defensively and riding Brandon Knight at the foul line to claim a 31-16 advantage in the final stanza and a…

When your team finishes with the worst record in the league, there usually aren't too many positives to take away from it. The best you can hope for is that you can quickly put it behind you and move forward. For Larry Sanders and O.J.

Stephen Curry was spectacular, scoring 28 points on just 13 shots. The MVP-candidate has hit 14 of his last 18 three-point attempts. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And tonight, someone got hurt. The home team Orlando Magic. For the most part, the Golden State Warriors played in a different gear, handling their talented but young opponent with relative ease in a 111-96 road victory.

    Ricky O'Donnell
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:50 am
    This is only going to get worse without a little patience and perspective. It was evident Derrick Rose just didn't have it in him exactly one minute into Tuesday's game against the Nuggets. That's how long it took for Ty Lawson to strip Rose as he pulled up for three and push the ball for a layup at the other end. We've seen Rose block shots in similar situations before, but that seems like a lifetime ago now. He made no attempt to chase down Lawson on this night. It set the tone for a game in which Rose looked sluggish and maybe even disinterested before mercifully being pulled at…

    Rose left game for good in first half. Ugh. So, to get the circumstances out there: It was the second night of a back-to-back in the thin air of Denver. Taj Gibson was known to be out in this game, sent home from the road trip. Joakim Noah was a late scratch, with both his eye injury in Utah and an apparent flare-up of his surgically repaired knee. Derrick Rose played less than ten listless first-half minutes before exiting with tightness in his hamstring. If it's not clear yet that this was just that kind of night the NBA schedule gives a team: CAMERON BAIRSTOW started. All that considered,…

Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol returned to the lineup against the Jazz on Monday night, and for one half, it looked like the Bulls were well on their way to an easy victory. Instead, Utah came roaring back and even had a four-point lead in the fourth quarter, but Chicago pulled out a 97-95 victory when Gordon Hayward missed a good look from three that would have won the game. I only saw the last few minutes of this one, so I missed all the good from the first half…

    The Spurs used an 18-2 run in the fourth quarter to turn a Pacers lead into a deficit, holding on for the 106-100 victory. Rodney Stuckey had 22. At some point in tonight's game, the Indiana Pacers and their 106-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs almost became a heartbreaking one. Though the score may not necessarily reflect it, Indiana did more than just hang tough with the Spurs; they led for over 26 minutes of game action, putting themselves in great position to not only compete, but possibly win. But it's not a surprise the Spurs would find a way to close out a win against this particular…

    Five Pacers reached double figures, including 22 points from Rodney Stuckey, but Indiana couldn't withstand a late Spurs push, falling in the final minutes in San Antonio. The Indiana Pacers put themselves in position to grab a big road win against the San Antonio Spurs for 41 minutes, but nursing a slim lead wasn't enough to withstand an 18-2 Spurs run halfway through the fourth quarter as the talent difference finally showed itself, setting the Spurs up for a late win. Indiana had no shortage of mistakes, but also had no answer for the Spurs once they turned it on in the fourth quarter.

Frank Vogel can put together a game plan and when his team shows up with energy and executes the plan, apparently the names on the back of the jersey don't matter -- the Pacers will have a chance to win. Once again, the Pacers put forth a strong effort on the road to pull off an improbable 111-100 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.

    12 Nov 2014 | 9:57 am
    A bloodbath is imminent. For those of you talking yourself into Flip’s antiquated offense, tonight will be the worst possible juxtaposition to support your theories. 1st to worst in 3 point attempts, with a difference of nearly 19 3 attempts per game (32.9 HOU vs. 14.2 MIN), and a much more palatable 3rd to 11th in free throw attempts. The Rockets are the epitome of the “modern NBA offense.” These are, of course, extremes on both ends of the spectrum. The Rockets may take the 3 pointer one or two steps too far, yet it remains comical to hear Flip try to convince his fans…

    I had hoped that my first post of this season would be about a more positive subject, but last nights developments suggest a very negative turn. The Twolves came into Orlando looking confident and strong after an impressive final six minutes against Brooklyn. In Brooklyn we saw a Wolves team that rose to the occasion, got out to a big league, weathered the storm and came a way with a victory. Everything looked great. Whenever he was on the court, Nikola Pekovic was a force to be reckoned with. Ricky Rubio scored the ball in crunch time. Kevin Martin hit big shots and the youngsters, Anthony…

    The Minnesota Timberwolves lost Kevin Love via trade this past summer, but that shouldn’t take any of their value away in the eyes of fans. Instead, fans should get to see their team at a discount, while watching some exciting talent develop along the way. Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic are already in place to help Minnesota stay competitive, while the future resides in Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine and Anthony Bennett. That mixture of upside and competitiveness gives Timberwolves tickets some serious value for the 2014-15 NBA season, especially if Minnesota can somehow make a playoff push.

    Washington has gone two striaght games without being able to get out and run. This time it was against a hungry Cleveland team who struck back after their loss to the Wizards last week. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Let's get to some of the links surrounding Wednesday's game. 1. Cavs put Wizards away early in 113-87 rout Yikes. That's two in a row. Two in a row where the Wizards haven't taken care of the basketball. Two in a row where the Wizards haven't been able to get out and run. Two in a row where the Wizards have just looked downright uninterested. Lets get straight to the recaps.

    Cavs get revenge on a listless Wizards team Wednesday. That was bad. The Cleveland Cavaliers blew out the Washington Wizards Wednesday, where they were blown out of the Q, 113 to 87. This game was fitting payback for Cleveland after they were soundly beaten at Verizon Center last Friday. This game was effectively over when the Wizards committed seven turnovers in the first quarter which turned into 11 Cavaliers points. During this time, the Cavaliers to go on a 15-2 run to turn a 12-10 game with 6:04 left into a 27-12 game that was dangerously close to being a blowout. Fortunately, Rasual…

    Whether it was the tentative play of their backcourt, or the inability to produce anything at the rim from the front court, the Wizards looked lost on both ends of the floor as they get blown out in their second meeting vs. the Cavs. Here's where things get tricky for the Wizards. They have the misfortune of playing the vaunted home/road back-to-back, and after letting last night's game vs. the Hawks slip away, they'll be kicking themselves if they can't get the split tonight in Cleveland.

The Knicks are a work in progress, Derek Fisher is showing how patient he is as a coach. The Knicks need to find five guys who get it and let them develop. I wonder if Fisher thinks Calderon and Bargnani could be two of those guys. If so, who are the remaining two, because this team starts and end with Carmelo.

  • Tweet of the Night: Stephen Curry explains how he avoids ankle sprains in a new series called “Kick’n It”

    James Park
    27 Nov 2014 | 10:14 pm
    These days, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is an unquestioned All-Star. He is one of the very few absolute must-watch players in the league, and even has the potential to win the MVP award this season with his team bulldozing through the competition in the early going. It wasn’t always this way, though. Just a few years ago, Curry had no answer for his inability to stay away from injuries, and some initially even questioned whether it was worth giving him the four-year, $44 million deal. It’s beyond silly in retrospect, as any team would break the bank to sign…

    Since it’s Thanksgiving, we’ll use a few photos from around the NBA that players posted celebrating the holiday. Of course, there were plenty all over social media, but these were the few that I went with to share. We all know it’s the time of year for family and friends to spend time together and share what they are thankful for. It’s also the time of year in which you’re allowed to eat as much as you want, as fast as you want, however you want it. Since it’s been a long day and I’ve had three stops for Turkey Day, I’ll get right down to the…
  • SH Blog: Cuban wants eight teams to swap conferences, Irving wants to become a great defensive player

    James Park
    27 Nov 2014 | 9:21 am
    Mark Cuban wants the Dallas Mavericks to become an Eastern Conference team, and he appears to be dead serious about it. Based on how the respective conferences look these days, can you blame him? The West has absolutely demolished the East in the early going with a combined record of 55-23 (!!!). With that kind of differential, it’s no surprise to see that the West has nine teams with a 60 percent or better winning percentage, while the East only has three such teams. The Brooklyn Nets currently hold the eighth seed with a 6-8 record in the East. Conversely, the Sacramento Kings have a…

    The 2014-15 NBA regular season returned on Wednesday, November 26 with a full slate of games. 26 teams took part in 13 games, with seven outings being decided by single-digits. The surprising starts continued. The disappointing ones did, too. Here’s how it all transpired. 1. Deron Williams stuffed the stat sheet with 17 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds, two steals and one block as the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 99-91. Joe Johnson scored 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting and Brook Lopez had 19 points on a mark of 9-of-12 from the field. Philadelphia is 0-15. That ties…

    Another night on the road, another victory for Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. After going off for 40 points on Tuesday against the Miami Heat, Curry was at it again on Wednesday against the Orlando Magic, scoring 25 of his 28 points in the first half of the contest. He also added five rebounds, eight assists, six three pointers and turned it over just once while playing under 24 minutes. By mid-third quarter, the game was already out of reach and the point guard took a seat for good with just under five minutes left in the period.  The Warriors are now 12-2 on the season, which…

    The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly decided to send both John Jenkins and Adreian Payne to the D-League for a stint with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. For the second time in approximately a week, the Atlanta Hawks will reportedly be making use of the D-League. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the team has elected to send both John Jenkins and Adreian Payne to join the Fort Wayne Mad Ants for an undisclosed period of time. Payne, who was Atlanta's first round selection in the 2014 NBA Draft, spent two games last week with Mad Ants, but this would be the first stint…
  • Raptors vs Hawks: Bad defense or just better offense?

    27 Nov 2014 | 4:57 am
    The Atlanta Hawks saw their two game winning streak end Wednesday night with a 126-115 loss to the Toronto Raptors. The Atlanta Hawks failed to capitalize on a chance for a statement win and folded late in a 126-115 loss at Philips Arena. Here are some takeaways from the game: Bad defense or good offense? Truthfully the answer was a little bit of both. Mike Budenholzer was quick to credit Toronto as a great team that did an excellent job of executing their offense and making shots. "They deserve credit," said Budenholzer. "They made a lot of shots, made a lot of plays. Defensively, we'd like…
  • Hawks vs Raptors final score: Defense struggles as Atlanta falls to Toronto, 126-115

    Brad Rowland
    26 Nov 2014 | 7:06 pm
    The Atlanta Hawks played quite well offensively against a top-tier team in the Toronto Raptors, but the defense was lacking in route to a 126-115 defeat. The Atlanta Hawks completed a back-to-back on Wednesday night with a home tilt against the Toronto Raptors. Despite an overwhelmingly positive night from the offense, the home team could not generate the stops necessary to topple the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors, and as such, they were sent to the Thanksgiving holiday on the heels of a 126-115 defeat. It was a largely back-and-forth start for both teams, but Toronto's DeMar DeRozan…

    Five things SEC basketball fans should be grateful for in the early season despite some really bad losses. SEC basketball has been mostly awful outside of Lexington and Gainesville for the last decade. Early losses to inferior teams by Ole Miss and Missouri plus a lack of a significant win from any team other than Kentucky have not made the best first impression. However, the bad losses are far fewer than recent years and the league has the most NBA-caliber talent in a decade beyond the Kentucky state lines. Here are five things to be grateful for early in the SEC season: 5…Point guard play…

    The Spurs are still quite good, as long as they play their main players. The following was written before the Spurs' game against the Indiana Pacers, and all of the stats are updated for the games played through 11/25. The Spurs have played 13 games, roughly one-sixth of the season.  It's just enough time where you don't ignore everything because of small sample size but don't take anything super seriously either because it's not enough sample size. Most of the experienced teams don't pay attention to trends and patterns until after one-third of the season --around Christmas time-- so…

    Aside from the multiple championships, fans of the San Antonio Spurs have a lot to be thankful for. In last year's NBA Finals against the Heat, Game 4 was a rerun of Game 3 - a Spurs blow-out win.  And because it was a repeat (but without the suspense - Miami never made a run), I wrote a blog entry entitled "Reruns", with all the negative connotations. In essence, Game 4 could be considered boring, even for those of us on the "winning side".  I closed out the Game 4 blog with the following: I taped last night's game, so I could play in my own game from 7:30 - 9:30{PDT}.

    The Thunder certainly have something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. In their final game before Turkey Day, the Thunder at last won a game after their constant defensive efforts over this tough losing stretch they’ve been on. OKC dominated the Utah Jazz, 97-82, due to superior energy, defense, and bench play. The Thunder’s strong defensive efforts were evident throughout, especially during a second half in which they gave up a mere 34 points total.

Jimmy Butler led the way for the Bulls with 32 points, 18 of them coming at the free throw strike. Pau Gasol also played well for the Bulls adding 20 points off of 10-20 shooting. The Nuggets looked almost unstoppable, though, as they had a balanced offensive attack which the Bulls were unable to deal with. While that may have been partially due to the absence of a defensive anchor in Joakim Noah due to an eye injury,…

He played most minutes against the Orlando Magic with 37, and he contributed for 7 points, 2 assists and a steal in that game.

    NBA draft Lottery is a joke and  a bad joke at that. The NBA draft  Lottery system is made to reward mediocrity by allowing the bottom feeders of the NBA to get their ping pong ball in the running to get a #1 draft pick. Teams have now figured out a way to work this system  by stringing multiple bad seasons together in order to get high draft picks. The Cleveland Cavaliers received back to back  #1 picks in Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. The 76ers have recently adopted a tanking philosophy in their rebuilding phase purposely losing to get players in the draft. Why is the NBA…

Why is it that during the playoffs , especially in the Western Conference, teams that Win 48-50 games miss the playoffs? It is simply due to the fact that the NBA seeds the top 8 teams from each conference.

    The Minnesota Vikings claimed former Browns running back Ben Tate off of waivers on Wednesday, to the surprise of some NFL insiders.  While the initial reaction was that Tate would impact Jerick McKinnon’s fantasy value, that does not look like it will be the case.  There are a couple reasons not to worry in you […] The post Ben Tate vs. Jerick McKinnon appeared first on MyFantasySportsTalk.

    Stuff That Happened NFL Week 12The New England Patriots are pretty much the best team in the NFL now. Remember the drama earlier in the season over Brady and whether he was done or not? Whether Bill Belichick would be able to make anything of yet another band of merry men and outcasts? They out-duelled the Broncos a few weeks back, ran all over the Colts last week and this time they picked apart the Detroit Lions like it was nothing. One of the best defences going around. Most of their best games have been at home, but that’s hardly an issue heading into the playoffs when they have the best…

    Money, Money, MONEY! You know who has lots of money? This guy.Giancarlo Stanton is about to be making massive bank. He’s gonna need a truck to drag all those cheques to the bank. They might as well just let him print his own bills. That’s because Mr Stanton is about to sign the biggest contract in American sports. US$325m over 13 years…There’s definitely a prevailing notion here that Three Hundred and Twenty Five MILLION dollars is too much cash for one man. Even if he lives in Miami. How many mansions does he need? How many cars, how much cocaine, how many ex-wives? The ManFirst up,…

    NZ Breakers 80-72 Melbourne UnitedFour in a row, yo.Playing at Vector where the team is yet to lose this season, a massive second quarter outweighed a sluggish third and the Breakers moved to 8-3 for the season. That’s good for second place on the ladder as things stand, below Perth at 7-2. (UPDATE - Melbourne went on to beat Perth on Sunday, putting NZB up to first!)Unfortunately it did come at a cost as Tom Abercrombie pulled out of the game after picking up a quad injury in shootarounds earlier in the day. He could miss a month.Reuben Te Rangi made the start in Abo’s place, but it was…

    Last Week: 9-5Season: 102-58-1Kansas City Chiefs (7-3) at Oakland Raiders (0-10)Man, last week was ruthless. There’s always a week like that at least once this season where you just can’t catch a break with picks. I had a week like that in Week 9 when I went 6-7, but at least managed to ride the wave last round. I had Houston, Chicago and Miami all to win, even if I got ripped to shreds on a couple others. From here on it’s back into the tipping grind until the last couple weeks when some teams don’t care anymore any they let gamblers, columnists and armchair commentators alike all…
