Malibu is a rum based liqueur, it's not even a full-strength liquor. And if rum is good enough for Hemmingway, it's good enough for me.

 

People can't really put down vodka as a girl's liquor and then sing the praises of drinking jagerbombs which are like the classic high school drink. :lol

 

Any liquor can be made "girly" if you want to define girly as anything that's fruity or sweet or tastes good. There's nothing wrong with enjoying a fruity drink just as much as you enjoy a scotch neat or tequila mixed with a bunch of juices or a jagerbomb, whatver you like so long as you enjoy responsibly.

 

I wasn't a fan of tequila at first, I just reached for bourbons, vodka, rum, first... but grabbed a bottle of a decent 100% agave tequila in El Jimador blanco, Cointreau, fresh limes, and have been making some mean margaritas after hanging out by the pool. There's a time and a place for everything, so if you're not a fan of tequila, try a classic, real, fresh, margarita and it might change your mind.

Drinking sweet alcohol now is a challenge like drinking straight tequila was as a kid.

 

Disgusting.

post #19268 of 38126

:lol yeah it's funny how that works. At first you need to mask the alcohol with soda or juice or something to take away the bite, then you get more used to it and now the sweetness is the gross part.

 

I was the same with with coffee too. First needed a ton of cream and sugar, and now it's just a splash of half and half and just a little sugar.

Exact same thing for me with coffee.  Drink it black now.  Why bother with all the extras.

Wall wasn't even dissing Reggie, he was just referring to the folks that said he was over paid back when Wall signed that 90 Million Deal.

There's also this thing called defense that Reggie is terrible at and Wall is one of the best at his position.

I knew that was coming laugh.gif

Does this mean people will stop ranking Kyrie Irving over Wall ? nerd.gif

And Reggie had a down year just like a lot of solid defenders in the NBA. The year before last, he actually had a positive DRPM, while Wall actually had a negative DRPM. The roles just reversed this season. laugh.gif

Of course, Wall is the better player. But, I don't consider Reggie Jackson some poor defender all because he had a bad year defending at his position, when his offensive load increased. He's at least average for the most part. Mike Conley had a negative DRPM this season, but I think we all know he's a high level defender. Westbrook also had a negative DRPM last season. Both guys increased their offensive output as well and carried a heavier load. Usually when your offense goes up you try a little less on defense.

I hate this argument laugh.gif If AD misses the playoffs last year because OKC healthy, then what? He's not that good? Some people actually would believe that, though laugh.gif .

I don't think anyone considers Reggie a better player, but its just funny that the one guy he was talking about had similar numbers as a starter through 40 games (OKC/DET). The reporter that asked him just wanted a reaction out of him. A better question would've been to ask about Goran Dragic making MORE than him laugh.gif

I've seen Flip Murray put up insane numbers in 27 games.

Not taking anything away from Reggie Jackson, but that VERY SMALL sample size is not comparable to Wall at all.

Reggie did a lot of work against backups as well. His breakout game was vs memphis without Conley. I think lowry got hurt in the first quarter vs toronto and a few more examples. His offensive load isn't going down and that was with Drummond behind him. If you watched him, he was visibly bad on defense

Exactly.

March and April are the prime times to put up great numbers. All the rookies and above average players on bad teams do this when teams rest, don't try hard etc.

I know Reggie can hoop. But it's very lazy to act like his 27 game body of work is similar to what we've seen from John Wall.

No wonder why the Kings made these moves.

JASON LEVIEN. The same guy the Grizz fired because he was trying to be sneaky and go against what the FO wanted. Now, it makes sense that they hired Karl as well because Levien loved Karl during the interview process at Memphis.

It all makes sense...I think I may change my mind about the Kings now if this guy is the one making the calls. He's bound to try and sabotage the franchise just like he tried to do Memphis before Pera got rid of him.


Also, the thing with Reggie...I don't see why he cannot duplicate those numbers next season as a full time starter. Not exactly sure what his shooting %'s will be, but he's definitely going to put up numbers barring injury. He has every opportunity to do it. Whether they produce wins or not is another story. The way I look at it, Reggie playing 27 games and putting up those numbers will not be the argument at the end of next season if he does it. The argument will be about his defense, the team not making the playoffs or something else laugh.gif . I'll rather you guys stick to those arguments than talk about the numbers like he's not capable of duplicating this next season.
