Four Corners: Who’s got the most at stake in the 2017 NBA playoffs?

We’re now less than a month away from the start of the 2017 NBA playoffs, and it’s time to start thinking about what exactly everybody’s going to be playing for between April and June. And that’s a list that extends far beyond just the right to hoist the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.

The topic for this week’s Four Corners roundtable: Who’s got the most at stake this coming postseason? Individual players, coaches, teams, general managers — which entities have the most riding on the outcome of the 2017 playoffs?

Here are our picks. Let’s hear yours in the comments.

Isaiah Thomas

He’s 5-foot-9, if that, and arguably a top-five MVP candidate. That alone is ridiculous and deserves to be celebrated. Nobody under 6 feet tall has ever been this good. His 29.2 points per game rank second behind only Russell Westbrook, he’s been the league’s best fourth-quarter scorer all season, and he owns a better Player Efficiency Rating (26.9) than LeBron James.

Oh, and he’s doing it all for $6.6 million. He costs the Boston Celtics a quarter of what the New York Knicks are paying Carmelo Anthony, a third of what the Los Angeles Lakers are paying healthy scratch Luol Deng, and half of what the Sacramento Kings are paying Arron Afflalo. And he’s actually slated to take a pay cut next season.

So, what’s at stake for the NBA’s best bargain? Just a max contract and the direction of a franchise.

Thomas has been rock solid for Boston since arriving at the 2015 trade deadline, leading the C’s to a pair of playoff appearances. But he’s struggled to find his rhythm once he got there, shooting a combined 37.6 percent, in part because he’s been the sole focus of opposing defenses. The Cleveland Cavaliers handled him with bigger defenders and double teams in a 2015 sweep, and the Atlanta Hawks outscored the Celtics by 8.7 points per 100 possessions with Thomas on the court in last year’s first-round exit. He’ll be the primary target of whichever team draws the Celtics this season, too.

Only this year, the stakes are higher. The C’s should enter the playoffs as either the East’s second or third seed, with home-court advantage in the first round. They’ll be expected to not only advance for the first time under head coach Brad Stevens, but to compete for an Eastern Conference Finals berth.

If Thomas falters again, and Boston falls short as a result, the front office has to consider whether the 5-foot-9 dynamo can lead them to their next championship. If not, they have to question if a $200 million max contract is wise for Thomas, what the trade market might be for him with one year left on his current deal, and whether they’re comfortable moving forward with the likes of Markelle Fultz as their potential No. 1 overall pick in this June’s NBA draft.

But if Thomas can lead the Celtics to the conference finals — and, even better, challenge the Cavs for East supremacy — Danny Ainge and company will feel a whole lot better about handing him that max deal, making him the face of their franchise and continuing to try building the next title team around him. — Ben Rohrbach

Mike D’Antoni and his Rockets could be ready to shock the world. (AP)

Mike D’Antoni

Mike D’Antoni shouldn’t have anything to prove. Not so much because he’s silenced all his critics by 2017, but because most who know enough about the man to form an opinion have already sealed their Suns-scorched take.

To those on his side, D’Antoni’s move to open up the lanes and up the scoring ante 12 seasons ago as coach of the Phoenix Suns was vindicated not by the championship victory of the 2016 Golden State Warriors, but by the work his Suns teams — all of which were felled by legitimate injury and/or suspension excuses — did at the time.

To them, the successes of those Suns teams validated D’Antoni’s tastes for 3-point shooting and quick play as much as the triumphs of those that sprung up around them — that era’s Mavericks and Spurs clubs — in the same way that recent champions in Cleveland, Miami and San Antonio owe a debt of gratitude to Seven Seconds or Less. D’Antoni’s “stylings” are now the style, so much so that each year’s champion can’t help but tip its cap to the guy who reminded many of us that basketball could be fun.

To his detractors, D’Antoni’s legacy was settled when the 62-win Suns were bounced from the Western Conference Finals in 2005, or when he left the Suns as a first-round loser in 2008. His legacy was ensured when his move to encourage Linsanity (or escape Dolanity) couldn’t survive New York’s star system. Or when he failed to reach Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant (who grew up idolizing D’Antoni, the Italian League star) in Los Angeles.

To them, D’Antoni’s all-out system only works when it has a sublime, MVP-level star pushing the tempo: Steve Nash, or Stephen Curry. And even that, with Nash a championship-less retiree and with Curry having blown a 3-1 lead in last year’s Finals, isn’t enough. Teams can shoot a lot of 3-pointers in the modern era, they’ll submit, but all-out Seven Seconds or Less-play doesn’t work unless a superstar is behind it. Call it the explainable Triangle Offense.

This is why 2016-17 has to be it. The Houston Rockets, despite some midseason rumblings, would still rank as “out of nowhere” should the (current, and likely) No. 3 seed make a play to topple the Spurs or Warriors in the second or third round. “A play” would stir the echoes among those who had forgotten they had a negative opinion to share about D’Antoni.

“A play,” with star James Harden still surrounded with so many uncertain parts, would work for the believers, as well. To travel this great a distance with reclamation projects like Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson carrying so great a load, with Lou Williams added midstream, with Clint Capela taken out for a month, with Patrick Beverley as fitful as ever? A deep run among the greats for Houston would remind, if not clarify.

Because, again, both sides made up their minds long ago when it comes to the subject of Mike D’Antoni.

Luckily for each side, the Warriors and Spurs didn’t quite leave the atmosphere before falling prey to injury and fatigue. Luckily for them, the postseason will allow for perhaps D’Antoni’s easiest road toward that supreme Finals stage, and the opinion reinforcement that will no doubt follow. — Kelly Dwyer

Kevin Durant finds himself in a very difficult predicament. (AP)

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors to have fun playing basketball while winning lots of championships. Unfortunately for him, that choice also created a scenario in which any failure to win, no matter the circumstances, would make his decision look foolish and ineffective to a significant portion of basketball fans. Controversial free-agent moves don’t get the benefit of the doubt.

It’s therefore no comfort to Durant’s reputation to say that, as long as he stays injured, the Warriors have no real shot of winning a title. If he doesn’t take the court in the playoffs, plenty of haters will say he should have pushed himself and lacks the single-minded will to excel through injury. If Durant plays and feels the effects of injury, he’ll be open to blame for any elimination, even if it’s clear his health was the difference between winning and losing. If he returns healthy, he’ll just play out the same alpha-dog issues that attended his move last July.

This whole rigamarole isn’t especially fair to Durant the human, but such matters never are. If anything, it’s a reminder that the supposed easy way out — joining an established contender — really just opened Durant up to far more scenarios in which he can be criticized. Thankfully, the best players tend to find the road to excellence even when so much blocks their path. — Eric Freeman

This could be the end of the line for a Clippers team that’s been a day late and a dollar short in the postseason. (AP)

The Los Angeles Clippers

It almost seems too obvious, but there it is, staring you in the face, plain as day and impossible to avoid. This is the sixth year of the Chris Paul-Blake Griffin-DeAndre Jordan era, and the fourth year of Doc Rivers coaching that trio, and for a variety of reasons — controversial calls and Kevin Durant, a staggering collapse and a lack of depth, busted quads and hands — this star-studded crew hasn’t made it past the second round of the playoffs. With the principals aging and the story getting stale, the stakes seem clear as ever: if this isn’t the year, then there might not ever be one.

Paul can opt out of his contract come season’s end, though it seems likely (and has been widely rumored) that no matter how the playoffs unfold, he’ll re-up in L.A. for the longest, most lucrative contract possible under the league’s new collective bargaining agreement, which he helped shape — and in very veteran-star-friendly ways — as the president of the National Basketball Players Association. Griffin’s got an early termination option, too, and has reportedly also expressed interest in re-signing. But what if the Clips again flame out in Round 1, this time at the hands of the very good, very deep and very feisty Utah Jazz? Or what if they knock off the Jazz, but fall in heartbreaking fashion to a vengeful top-seeded San Antonio Spurs squad … or, even worse, once again get smoked by a Golden State Warriors side that has spent the last few years shattering the Clips’ dreams at every turn?

Might yet another enervating, disappointingly familiar conclusion lead the Clippers’ stars to change their minds? Might it change Rivers’, or owner Steve Ballmer’s, about the long-term potential of bringing CP3 and Blake back?

The questions extend beyond the Clips’ two top guns. Starting shooting guard J.J. Redick will hit unrestricted free agency, as will veteran reserves Raymond Felton, Brandon Bass and Alan Anderson. So could starting small forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and reserve center Marreese Speights, who own player options for next season.

Of the top nine players in Doc’s rotation, only Jordan, Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford are definitively slated to return next year. The latter two heard their names prominently featured in rumors before last month’s trade deadline. Jordan, an All-NBA and All-Star center with two years left on an attractive pre-cap-boom max contract, would represent the Clips’ best chance at netting a significant return in trade if L.A. did decide to make real changes after another pre-conference finals exit.

If the breaks once again favor the Clips’ opposition without any new evidence suggesting that this team really can get over the hump and into the title picture, no potential means of reconstruction seems beyond the pale. Anything and everything would figure to be on the table.

Or, y’know, things could finally go the other way.

Paul continues the tremendous play that would have had him in the All-Star Game and MVP conversation had he not hurt his thumb. Griffin returns to the level that had him looking like the best non-LeBron power forward in the world two postseasons ago. Jordan collapses opponents in the pick-and-roll and anchors the defense. Everybody else makes shots, and everybody stays healthy.

The Warriors never quite get right even after getting Durant back. The Spurs’ lack of backcourt depth comes back to bite them. The Rockets’ long-range shooting runs cold, the Jazz aren’t quite ready for prime time, and the Clippers finally click enough come springtime to make the Finals, convincing everybody who needs convincing that they really have been for real this whole time; they just needed a little bit of luck to prove it.

An exorcism and the elation of a championship run, or the end of an era that produced a lot of wins and even more heartbreak. It kind of feels like the Clips are headed for one or the other this postseason. The stakes don’t get much higher than that. — Dan Devine

  3. This is a linear game. Walk down this hall then walk down another hall etc. Also you can not jump in this game. Your character is glued to the floor at all times which gives me a trapped feeling. Mario could jump and he was a fat plumber. Batman should be able to jump.

  6. Nice post. I study something on totally different blogs everyday. It would at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and observe a little bit something from their blog.

  7. Thanks for the names! Didn’t know persons ones. It would be nice for someone in-the-know to post a listing online as to all the (quality) places online to find excellent voucher, even the paid sites. (I’m sometimes willing to buy coupons if it’s worth the price and it saves lots of time.)

  8. I couldn’t agree more on providing full feeds – if anything, having only partials is more likely to make me unsubscribe from your site and never come back Firefox Live Bookmarks have always stumped me. I can’t see how they’re any more practical than RSS readers, plus they take up toolbar space. Meh

  9. We should expect honesty, but the YT team has lied to users from the very first chances made 2 months ago. We should expect the site to be working reasonably well before new featuers are added. WE should expect to have the featuers we want to get the most not what the editors want us to have.

  10. or anything else instead of '!' — Google never even knows about this (it only sees '?' in the end).In short, I like the idea of using a headless server, but there's no need for '!' and '_escaped_fragment_'; let the site have its own rules and mechanisms for this (Google doesn't need to care). The interface between Google and the website being crawled should be minimal.Any downsides to this?

  11. Pour la palette c’est des couleurs trop similaires. J’aime pas trop. Bof. Concernant le dernier produit aie aie aie il est nul. J’ai bien meilleur avec le Lip Glow de Dior. Stick comme un Baume a lèvres, sent sublimement bon et il colore nos lèvres en fonction de l’humidite de la peau. Pas besoin de miroir, pas de rature, c’est le truc a avoir dans sa salle de bain avec le touche éclat de chez YSL!

  12. De Magistris sembra l’unico dell’IdV che non urla e attacca tanto per farlo. Forse riuscirà a superare Di Pietro in consensi e magari renderà l’IdV un partito vero.Non ho però molta fiducia, perchè attualmente l’IdV ha uno stile fascista, a mio parere, nel modo di porsi (nei confronti degli avversari politici, dei possibili alleati e delle istituzioni). Sembra che considerino tutti peggiori di loro (e quindi la conseguenza politica di ciò sarebbe la dittatura del partito, no?).

  13. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

  14. Joder, cuando veía unas de esas ASQUEROSAS cucarachas y más aún… volando. Era cuando me enloquecía. Corría (y hasta tropezaba con todo) o salía por doquier. Les tenía un asco tremendo, aunque claro, actualmente les he superado un poco. Ahora puedo tener el valor de acercarme a ellas y aplastarlas como se merecen. Fucking roaches, puaj.

  16. Since you are such a genius (and so eloquent), answer this question: If you were moving into a new arena and the entire NYC and NJ press corps was attending a media tour of your new building, would you make sure that you had a warm body present to promote your product?If you don’t agree then you are a numb scull- better yet, your brain is numb. You are CLUELESS about PR, the media and marketing.

  17. Hi Michelle -I came over from Little Elephants to say hello. Living in England I haven’t heard of many of the candies you mentioned. I love almost all chocolate though -Green and Black’s, Dairy Milk, anything with nuts and raisins in. I could go on…hee hee.

  19. I surprised her with a dildo the other night, and she loved me using it on her while we were fooling around. She asked me where I bought it and I was honest and told her I bought it from a lady in her 40′s off eBay. She totally flipped out because it wasn’t new and went on and on about how bad I am. I was just trying to save some money, and it looked clean when it came. Should I set her straight or what?

  20. I live in Buffalo, NY and am no stranger to snow – especially lake effect snow. My favorite Darkyn book is “Evermore”. I love how Michael & Alex’s relationship grows over the course of the books. I also love Alex being such a strong character.

  22. Not so fast 1/2 street … methinks the AFL could be very interesting to watch with potential ongoing competition between Harper and Rendon for a coveted 24 man slot on the major league roster. I am hoping they dangle it like the hardest to reach carrot.

  25.

Mutta epäilen, että Akismet on fiksumpi sillä tuo nyt ei sinänsä täytä spämmin merkkejä sisältämällä zxxzxzx yms kirjaimia, vaan spämmissä on yleensä linkkejä ja muuta shittiä.

  26. I love the MAC Select Cover-Up that comes in the little tube…it is thinner but still covers my unereye circles and acne scars!! I just apply it before my foundation and maybe a touch-up after (if needed)Yippee. The concealer in the pot and the wand are too cakey for me. Give the Select Cover-Up a go…you might like it, too!

  30. Du er naiv. Finn ein palestinar som vil godta det.Dei fordrivne palestinarane kan vel ta plassen til dei fordrivne jødane.Einaste løysing er å trekke seg heilt ut og la dei verte ferdige, utan innblanding frå vår side. Arabarlanda er ti gonger so mange og ville lett kunne slå Israel. Dei har no fått prøve nokre gongar.

  31. Diane, you amaze me! You are so talented you could go into business. I love them all and wish I had time to create such lovely things. Have you seen those cute fabric reusable bags you take shopping? I’ll have to forward you the site because I bet you could whip those up in no time!

  32. Innlegget ditt har gitt meg mang ein god latter i dag.Å sitere små utdrag frå kåseriet ditt der metaforisk chili var brukt utan å forklare samanhengen vitnar om dårleg dømmekraft og dårleg journalistikk.Kan vel også sei at eg heller ikkje er spesielt imponert over Firda, sånn på det jamne..Måtte bunadsmafiaen brenne!

  41. En feuilletant les dictionnaires, on fait des trouvailles qui sont autant de petites pépites langagières. Récemment, j’ai découvert le verbe « issir* », aussi défectif que tombé en désuétude, et qu’on ne (mé)connaît plus que par son participe passé.Littré ne donne ainsi une entrée qu’à « issu », ce qui est hautement condamnable et proprement stupéfiant. Exit « issir », donc, avec son faux air de prince d’Arabie et son parfum de mille et une nuits. C’est triste. * sortir de.

  44. Noora sanoi: "Minua vain hieman epäilyttää motiivin aitous, jos ei-homo on erityisen kiinnostunut homojen oikeuksista."Miksi ylipäätään olla kiinnostunut minkään toisen väestöryhmän ahdingosta? Minäpä vastaan: koska ihmiset kokevat myötätuntoa, haluavat oikeudenmukaisuutta ja yhdenvertaista kohtelua. Siinä syy, miksi tämä hetero kannattaa homojen oikeuksia.Noora sanoi: "Samat ihmiset harvoin kuitenkaan ovat kiinnostuneita esim. vammaisten esteettömästä kaupunkiympäristöstä."Ovatko vammaisjärjestöt ja vammaiset kaksinaismoralistisia, jos he eivät ota kantaa homojen oikeuksiin?

  45. O engraçado é que nenhum dos comentários discute ou nega nada do que está escrito no texto de Pondé.

  48. I’m impressed, I need to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve gotten hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled throughout this in my search for one thing relating to this.

  51. The Red Army of 1940 was an offensive army. It had more tanks and trucks than the rest of the world's armies combined, including the BT-series of fast tanks that could operate cross-country on tracks AND run at high speeds on wheels over paved roads. Russia didn't have a lot of paved roads in 1941, but Europe did.Also, Russia had a large paratroop force in 1941. Paratroopers are strictly offensive.So, whether an invasion of Europe was 2 weeks or 2 years away, it was definitely something the Red Army was planning.

  54. Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and observe a bit something from their store. I’d desire to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  55. Skulle vara så kul om du ville kika in min butik Lantliv i Leksand när du är i krokarna. Har fått in jätte mycket fint som jag tror du skulle gilla;)Har förresten mycket fina tyger (och duktig sömmerska) som skulle passa till gardiner till ert vardagsrum:)Ha det så mysigt i Tällberg!Gunilla, Lantliv i Leksand.

  56. Ayant obtenu mon diplôme de master spécialisé en science de l’industrie agro alimentaire.Je suis à la recherche d’une bourse d’étude pour continuer mes études doctorale (2ème année) option microbiologie alimentaire ou une bourse de stage pour approfondir mes connaissances dans ce domaine.cordialement

  57. If so, what programming language do you use? Why do you use that programming language? What 2D/3D modelling/animation programs do you use to program your games? What license(s) are they released under? What kind of games do you make? Are you an independent programmer or do you work on a team? Are any of your games commercially available? What are they called? Have you ever written your own game engne? What is the name of it?

  58. Hiya, I’m really glad I have found this information. Today bloggers publish just about gossips and internet and this is really irritating. A good blog with interesting content, this is what I need. Thank you for keeping this website, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

  59. Another ACORN tape tonight. Only this time it’s revealed on Hannity. Guess Glenn Beck was stealing the thunder from the other shows on FOX and had to “share.” Breitbart will not post it until Hannity is on air.I’m waiting for the Obama Chicago “family tree” chalkboard visual that someone from Breitbart is working on and was supposed to be revealed on Glenn Beck this week. Perhaps Thurs or Friday. CW: You’re on it!!!!

  60. Tami Figueiredo comentou em 2 de junho de 2010 às 15:14. Juuu, vi umas coisinhas da NYX aí, mas vc nunca fez make com elas!Tem uma sombra verde que apareceu maravilhosa! Pode rolar manual com ela!NYX tem uma qualidade boníssima e não é tão caro quanto MAC, né! É uma boa alternativa pras suas “meninas”!Um beijoooo!

  61. Me da rabia que me pille tan lejos porque estoy segura de que va a ser muuuuuuuy divertido (y, de paso que una se divierte aprende a hacer algo). ¿Compartiréis una foto de alguna de vuestras obras???? Las galletas de hoy están preciosas. Has hecho una decoración realmente elaborada.Besos Gracias María!!Quien sabe, igual algún día que vaya por ciudadadoptiva…Un beso

  62. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say superb blog!

  63. What a beautiful way to put it. This book was a wonderful find! I once chose not to take a class from one particular artist, because I noticed that all her student’s work looked exactly like hers after taking her class, and though I appreciated her work, did not want my marks to become too much like another’s. You understand! Practice, practice, practice–that’s the only way to develop your own “style”.

  64. pourquoi l’appelle t-on huîtrier , alors qu’il est incapable d’ouvrir une huître de son bec ? C’est comme le crabier chevelu qui n’a jamais mangé un crabe de sa vie … Il n’aime pas les fruits de mer , ça lui donne des boutons !!! Pourtant , avec un bon verre de blanc et du pain beurre demi-sel … Non , je dis ça car j’ai dégusté un bon plateau de fruit de mer à midi …. Avec un chevelu !!

  65. Wonderful advice from Emma and I did the same in the beginning and could very much relate. I am now trying more to balance things out and it truly isn’t easy to do it all. Excited to get to guest post now, too

  66. I'm a google friend connect follower who would adorn this fabulous D&G dress with a big flower brooch on the shoulder and a black velvet belt or sash. Then some beaded bangles for the final touch.

  67. Hmm, die Farben sehen alle zum Anbeißen aus!Ich hab mal ne Frage. Wichtiger als ne schöne Farbe, sind für mich auch gepflegte Nägel. Hast du zufällig eine Empfehlung bezüglich Nagelhautentferner? Benutzt du ein Serum oder einen Stift oder … würde mich über deinen persönlichen Tipp sehr freuen!Viele Grüße, Marleen

  68. Of all the above channels listed with over one millions subscribers the only ones I enjoy are failblog and colleghumor. The rest are simply clones of each other, when watching the rest, you may as well put your TV back on. No different. Altho machinima is a quality channel as well, it's just not my thing.

  69. That would be a yes (I blogged about it here). I was quick to point out that my last Malaria attack was over 10 years ago and surely there must be some sort of statute of limitation. After a consultation they informed me that I could donate but I would have to be screened for malaria each and every time I donated. No problems for me there.

  70. Åh, men når man blir spiddet av en istapp får man jo en helt spesiell utfordring. For du vet jo (som alle ER-seere) at når man spiddes av noe, må man ikke fjerne objektet før man er på sykehuset og proffe kan gjøre det, for ellers kan man blø ihjel. Men hva om objektet er en istapp, da? Og den SMELTER før man kommer på sykehuset? Dør man langsomt og dryppende, da eller? Huttetu.

  71. I just saw on the news there was another kid left at a Chuck E Cheese, not far from this. Same deal, large party, and everyone thought the kid was with other relatives.

  72. KeelyHaving used to sign people on, I can tell you that it is pretty obvious to the staff who the genuine ones are and who the chancers are! Glad you got the help – not ideal, but it was something at least. The system is stacked against the people who the system was set up to help – those who have fallen on hard times (as opposed to those who never fell anywhere!) It is hard to get help when you have worked for a living, as you don’t know how it all works.

  73. Nosotros tuvimos una mala experiencia con un cliente que vino y, estando en la casa, quiso permanecer un día más. Le pedimos la tarifa normal e intentó regatear el precio, pero le dijimos que era tarifa fija. Sorprendentemente, nos encontramos con que dejó un comentario negativo en la página que no tenía nada que ver con el asunto y desaconsejando a la gente que nos visitara…

  74. A couple of month immediately after launching the web-site Beechwood Metalworks told us “We have been extremely pleased with our web site. We’ve got noticed an maximize in customer inquires through the web-site and experience that it showcases our products perfectly. Dealing with Alan and Tristan was fantastic! They were in a position to conquer our complex needs and make our internet site quick to navigate. We highly recommend their services!”

  75. I was hoping that basic human decency would win with a clean sweep in this election. There were several other states with resolutions similar to Prop 8 that also voted against gay rights. I can’t imagine the pain that gay people are feeling right now. One battle’s been lost; now’ the time to prepare for the next one.

  76. Amazing shots, Adam! I spent all evening Saturday waiting for even a glimpse of the moon but the DC are was under the biggest cloud bank possible. Even missed the meteor shower that was scheduled to follow.Mark Summerfield recently posted..

  77. Ben muhtemelen bundan da alacağım zaten :)Zaman zaman gürültülü ortamlarda çalıştığım için telefonu duyma sıkıntısı oluyor. Asıl niyetim bileğime takabileceğim bir nev'i titreşimli pager aslında benim de.

  78. got the impression from our prior discussions that B-emptiness was something more like “absolute receptiveness“Absolute receptiveness” of what? Thsi implies to me something that is both receptive and truly existent. Mind is the former but not the latter.

  79. Thanks for the comment. We do have a revision course here at York, but this conference has really underscored for me the need to encourage students to develop skills like editing/revising while they’re pursuing their degrees in translation. I think their translation training will make them particularly well suited for editing texts by non-native speakers, and if that is what employers are looking for, then it’s worth thinking about now as a career option in the near future.

  80. I invested in gold some years back. It is a great investment if you watch the market carefully and buy it right when the economy starts to decline. As people lose faith in the dollar, gold becomes worth more.

  81. I tell you the moment a family member finds one of my profiles is the moment that profile seize to exist, that have always been a clear policy of mine, I want to be able to smack talk those fuckers without them reading or hearing it.And they all know it too, my wife and I have a clear agreement not to follow each other on any social media site ever.

  82. Designing your websites with photoshop is something that will greatly enhance the final result of your website. Not only will you know where your trying to end up with the finished site, but the sheer power of the tools on offer allows you to create breath-taking designs in a matter of minutes. However, it’s not always that easy, so I’m going to run through the basics for making a beautiful, clean design in photoshop.

  83. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, superb site!

  84. Ha ha ha ha. Kan inte sluta skratta. =) FÃ¥r en bild i mitt huvud sominte vill försvinna…Skulle sÃ¥ gärna vilja höra säkerhetskontrollerna pÃ¥ sin fikarast dÃ¥ de diskuterar den ”galna svenskan” och hennes packning! =)Det var verkligen härligt att fÃ¥ vara med och ”crewa”. Ser fram emot att se dig i Malmö med Moonboots, pälsjacka och slimmade byxor.

  85. Don’t forget that early humans drove large herd animals off cliffs to kill them, even Mammoths and in America Bison.Also, don’t forget that there is no evidence Modern Humans are descendants of any of the early fossil primates, nor has even one transition fossil been discovered that Modern Humans ‘evolved’ from these early primates…Al

  86. Final note: Remember around 2003 when everyone was completely sick of stocks and had ABSOLUTELY no interest in buying them? That’s true capitulation. When no one wants to buy a house anymore because they think it is the worst investment in the world …that’s when you start buying property again!

  87. Speaking as a card-carrying member of the “I’m a wuss-just knock me the zit unconscious” club, let me just say I was cringing thru all these videos by proxy. Why didn’t the doctor squeeze the ever-livin’ daylights outta this beast to get it over with once and for all? Good for the poppee and good for the popper. Thanks, Winnie for another super find!Well-loved.

  88. Oi Camila tb amo esmaltes rosinha, o meu preferido da vez é o charminho lilás da risque, é um rosinha puxado pro lilas bem fofo bem lindo aposto que vc iria gostar bjs fica com Deus.[]Camila Coelho Respondeu:January 5th, 2012 em 11:59 am, uhmmmm eu conheco flor, eh lindissimo mesmo =) Um beijao e obrigada por compartilhar []

  89. NO – the Right is a ‘Defend the Constitution’ party. NO one on Right actually Votes for Facism – the RIght Votes for Freedom and Liberty..ON the left – those voters DOOOOO vote for socialism. That is a big difference – regardless of the actual elected officials do.

  90. I do know this isn’t precisely on subject, however i’ve a website utilizing the same program as well and i am getting troubles with my feedback displaying. is there a setting i am missing? it’s attainable you may assist me out? thanx.

  91. Seriously, isn’t this constant propagandising more in keeping with the media efforts of tin-pot communist states? I’ve thought for quite a while that Howard seems to want to project an “uncle of the nation” image similar to Ho Chi Minh (or Mao Tse Tung or even Fidel).Uncle Howie?

  92. Thaisa, conta pra gente que feitiço você usa nesse marido?hahaha =)Sério…essa lei nunca pegaria na minha casa…mas a gente se virá, né? Tenho tentado lavar a louça enquanto cozinho, e tem funcionado… Se der preguiça depois da refeição, sobra pouca coisa pra próxima louça (sou meio maluca?rs)Beijos!

  93. Wow color me surprised. Executive privilege from the great executive order, by-pass Congress, do what I want, fake Pres. Oh his name is on those papers alright and his little minion Holder ran out of wiggle room this morning. So bring on the big block, executive privilege. Obama is sealing his own fate everyday if only people wake up and see the truth of this whole regime. They will stick it in the American people’s face until we stop them with an overwhelming vote against them all. No need to count on Congress we can do it ourselves and we must.

  94. Hei! Er gøy å se outfit'ene dine, det gir inspirasjon til andre som også er xl. Men jeg må bare få sagt at den vesten passet ikke så godt til deg, du ser større ut enn du er. Ikke meningen å såre:)

  95. I agree completely. Molina can’t hit, he’s terrible at blocking pitches in the dirt. They should get rid of him & maddon. I remember Madden saying how Matsui was a great addition to the team & Ruggino didn’t hit enough. Great evaluation dummy. He probably thinks we should resign Pena to. GO REDS.

  96. Not my comp, mind you, but I was working so hard for the joke that I blew it. What I meant is that there are folks that are speculating that Lannan is blocking Milone under the false logic that they’re both lefthanded “soft-tossers.” I must have missed that chapter in the Joe Morgan book about the limit to the number of archetypes you can have on a pitching staff.

  97. I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i am happy to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to don’t forget this web site and give it a glance regularly.

  98. Tamamdır, sadece ev bilgilerini bıraktım. Benim ev ve iÅŸyerim nispeten yakın sayılır, meteoerolojik olarak önemli farklılıklar olmuyor, fakat özellikle Ä°stanbul’da TEM Hattında , 150 m ve üzeri rakım da iÅŸyerleri olanlar, bence mutlaka rumuzlarında iÅŸ yerlerini belirtsin.

  99. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  100. You would never get Democrats to agree to it, because the people who they think need the stimulus the most, the poor single parents who get thousands back that they didn’t pay in using the Earned Income Tax Credit, wouldn’t benefit from it because they don’t pay any taxes.Washington would rather frame it like they were grandparents giving money away to their grandchildren instead of giving back money that was already yours to begin with.Makes them look better to their constituents.

  101. Nathan disse:Ola, eu tenho um gogear 1g e quando eu conecto ele ao meu pc, nele aparece a tela avisando que esta conectado, mas no pc não aparece nada(não reconhece).Você poderia me ajudar oque pode ser?

  102. Yluss disse:Carissimo Comandante,Sendo tão precisas suas informaçoes e tendo a boa fé na sua identidade, só me resta sentir um orgulho enorme de uma força aérea que tira leite de pedra.Orgulho de ser compatriota dos pilotos de caça de nossa FA.Senta a Pua nesses fregueses!!!!! Sds

  103. You should stick to being a C-rate model, because you are an F-rate boxer. You would get killed by anyone with halfway decent skills. You’re slow, you’re clumsy, you throw looping shots and you leave yourself wide open. Plus, it is obvious that you have no heart an would fold up like a lwn chair the first time you got tagged.

  104. I’m less harsh on these guys. It isn’t just about them. It’s about those whom they would like to influence, the ones left behind. If you read what they’ve produced, it’s an old fashioned propaganda, an advertisement. It’s form is at the heart of all too many systems of belief. Needless to say, it won’t convince anyone who tends to base decision on evidence, but it will have an effect on those who look to leaders.

  105. Thanks Wendy. I would agree – never underestimate the power of emotion in philanthropy. I just finished a conversation with a friend who noted she’d already spent her charitable budget for the year, but was going to find $500 for a cause she cared about by cutting something else from her budget. How many of us can or will do that?

  106. any visual side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

  107. Joo. Oottekos huomanneet, kuinka helposti ihmisiä leikellään sen sijaan, että kukaan kertois mistään kotikonsteista? Ihan kuin siinä olis jotain "väärää"? Mun mielestä kirurgit vois keskittyä ihan niihin nivelienvaihtoihin ym… Eihän hammaslääkärikään ekasi revi kaikkia hampaita irti ja asenna tekareita purukaluiksi 😀

  108. Lakesite is the name of my town. It is special because we know so many of the people here. My husband grew up here and many of the children that our children play with and go to school with are the children of playmates/classmates of my husbands. It makes for a very neighborly feel. And my hometown name is on the fabric. YAH!

  109. Hi Howard,the DC is over 60 dB above the noise level, when Bias T off, LNA on, Mixer gain off and IF gain 0.Just renewed my measurement with an audio editor at low noise without any signals visible:Left offset: 0.0029593Right offset: 0.0029804both relative to +/- 1.0kind regards,LC

  110. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  111. Luis Ignacio Díaz del Dedo21/11/2008LOL no me había dado cuenta del juego de palabras por que entendí Homus como humo por la foto, me imagino que es con lo que estabas jugando. Esta curioso aunque aún se me haga raro el momento en el que descubres que son dos tios cuando durante casi toda la lectura te has imaginado un tio y una tia, será condicionamiento social me imagino…

  112. Lots and Lots and Lots of soft flannel receiving blankets are a must. Newborn babies really need to be swaddled tightly for several weeks after birth. They are used to being held snugly and warmly within mama. Swaddling in a receiving blanket is a way to “recreate” the feeling of comfort within the womb.You might wish to include a couple of different brands of newborn size pacifiers too.

  113. I think youve made some truly interesting points. Not too many people would truly think about this the way you just did. Im seriously impressed that theres so much about this topic thats been uncovered and you did it so properly, with so substantially class. Excellent 1 you, man! Really wonderful stuff here.

  114. 17/03/2010 – 1:25pmA mi tambien me hicieron lo mismo el dia de la encuesta de futuro entrenador del madrid.La encuesta trataba de quien deberia ser el entrenador del madrid el año que viene, y un 60% queria que fuese pellegrini.Puse un comentario “Señor inda, saque esta encuesta mañana en portada”.Fue borrado…

  115. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my problem. You are incredible! Thanks!

  116. I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I am quite certain I’ll learn many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!
