    Robotech is one of my favs. I am excited to see if the can pull it off in a live action movie. Toby McGuire is supposedly going to be in it.

    I'll have to check it out. I usually just watch the stuff my brothers tell me to. At first I was hesitant but I grew to love it quickly.

    Kanter's defense has been the biggest surprise for me.
    Way back then, most everyone on this board was calling defense 'blocks.' I remember going round and round with too many people that blocks and steals are two of the most overrated statistics in basketball and far from an end-all indicator of elite defense. My saying his defense was suspect was in direct response to so many wanting shot-blockers. OhGee - You remember coming into the 2012 thread and asking if I was surprised to see a particular great block by Kanter in one game last year. I said I was ..

    I never really doubted Kanter's overall defense, because I had seen his strength, motor, and willingness to use both .. but I also knew he wasn't going to be a 'defender' in the ilk most here thought they wanted/needed.
    Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

    I do remember asking you that. I also agree that steals and blocks are not a direct indicator that someone is a defensive genius or not. Too many players want those highlight and they gamble and more often then not that gamble burns them.

    Steals and blocks can indicate something but it doesn't necessarily mean that someone is a defensive stalwart.

    I do hate to bring up Calipari too often, it's not a homer thing, as much as it is I just happen to know more about his style and philosophies than that of other coaches ..

    Anyway, Calipari tells his teams every year, "I want you to end the season ranked #1 in your league in defense while being ranked dead last in steals."

    I initially found that a very interesting concept/thought .. now it's just ingrained and instinctual.

    The real surprise on the defensive end has been Hayward.

    Anyway, nice bump. And, for the record, while I had my anxiety about the pick, I've been a consistent Kanter supporter.

    It doesn't ring a bell. PM me a link of some sort. I finished Bleach a while ago and I have been looking for something new and good to replace it.
