And Vander in Rowsey's roster spot

Rowsey should definitely remain on the team. Deiner's getting older so they'll need 3pt shooting. Vander will not replace that.

I'd argue that they have plenty of 3pt shooting without Diener (1 in TBT) or Rowsey (1 in TBT). Much as I loved Rowsey at MU, he doesn't have the size/athleticism/willingness to play adequate D against TBT caliber players. Vander has all those things, plus slashing ability plus NBA experience.

That's fair. But he managed a 40pt game in the GLeague. I mean that's definitely TBT level standard IMO. Just unsure what Vander brings. We have better driving at the 2 from DJO and Buycks Plus than enough scoring. Rowsey replaces shooting that Jake Thomas/Deiner were in to bring

It's a testament to how deep we are that Rowsey can average 19 ppg in the G League and barely get any run with this team.

Henry in Luke’s roster spot next year on TBT?? Wow they would be good!

It would be interesting to see Henry’s rebounding ability in TBT. It feels like there’s a lot of tipped rebounds, so I don’t know if he’d be athletic enough to corral them instead of tips.

Him and Jamil would be a pretty versatile front court. Although, I don’t know if you take Cook off the court who I think has been one of the best pickups the last few years.

There's no easy rebounds for Henry to get in the TBT

I'd much rather have Elgin Cook play 25 minutes a game on the TBT team instead of Henry. That's not a shot at Hank, Cook has just been that good.

Oh yeah, Rowsey definitely does one thing incredibly, incredibly well. If he were a foot taller he'd be the second coming of Steve Novak, with the NBA career to go with it. But at 5'10" he is what he was at MU--a toss up whether his scoring outweighs his defensive deficits.

I like him as an option, but if I were forced to chose for that roster spot, I'm taking the bigger, faster, more athletic slasher who can also play really good defense, and while he is no Rowsey from 3pt, he isn't a total bricklayer either.

D'oh! Ellenson! That proves how irrelevant he is!

Also keep your TBT crap out of here. Wrong thread

Also, my autocorrect keeps turning "Ellenson" to "Ellen's on" which is also hilarious.

Henry, Ellen's on! You don't want to miss your favorite talk show!

Speaking of the Ellenson brothers. 
I found out after the Ellenson tenure that my kid's high school cross country cost was Wally before Wally.  Back in the early 90's at Southern Connecticut State Univ he was a D-II All American in the High Jump and he was also on scholarship for the SCSU basketball team.

I think Henry would have the same problem as Gardner who was noT effective  his year at TBT and has not been back since

We were driving though Bumblefudge northern Wisconsin this morning and did a radio search.  A few stations were "easy listening."

It made me wonder .. who works at an Easy Listening station.  Wouldn't they effing hate their job?    I mean, I get it.  EL has a place in elevators, hallways, offices.  Background music.

But no one is thinking "man, when I grow up I want to be a DJ at an Easy Listening station.  That'd be awesome."

There are far more people who want to work in the entertainment industry than there are cool jobs.

That's why actors appear in commercials for deodorant.  Or why musicians play for tips in crappy bars.  Or journalists write for tawdry gossip blogs.

Yep. I'm guessing many started with aspirations of being a TV or radio news or talk show host, or at least a DJ at some cutting-edge station. They fall to these jobs because they have openings. It reminds me of my law school days at Vanderbilt, just a few blocks from Music Row. Most of the restaurant servers were musicians who did small gigs on the weekends hoping to be discovered.

And on the plus side...'easy listening' these days often includes Elvis and the Beatles, once consider pretty cutting-edge themselves.... ;)

Maybe not best covers of all time but some of my favorite covers by rock artists:

Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana
Happy Together - Filter
Jolene - The White Stripes
When I Grow Up - All Time Low
Zombie - Bad Wolves
Heart Shaped Box - Evanescence
The Sound of Silence - Disturbed
I Fought the Law - The Clash
The Ballad of Hollis Brown - Rise Against

Bringing it back to best covers for a moment. One popped up on my playlist today that I had forgotten about but should have included:

Billie Jean - Chris Cornell

Very good version if you've never heard it. Like it better than the original
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Also try Billie Jean by the Civil Wars.

So Glow and I were listening to the radio, and he wondered aloud what pop or rock song has been played the greatest number of times in concert by its original artist.  It would have to be someone who has been around a long time and does a lot of touring.

Glow originally came up with "Rock and Roll all Night" by Kiss, but then agreed with my guess of "Come Monday" by Jimmy Buffett. He released the song in 1974, and has toured nearly every summer since then.

Any other guesses?

Sorry, I should have been clear that it had to be a hit song.

Also, Jerry Garcia has been dead for 25 years.  It's not really the same band.

Born to Run and Satisfaction are good choices.

Others: Paul McCartney “Yesterday”, Billy Joel “Piano Man”, Elton John “Your Song”, Willie Nelson “On the Road Again”, Gladys Knight “Midnight Train to Georgia”.

I left out Bob Dylan because even though he’s toured a ton over the last 50 years his set list constantly changes.

Bruce might be up there, but he hasn't really toured that much in the past decade.

Paul McCartney and the Stones don't tour every year, and when they do, they are more likely to do a handful of huge places as opposed to  50-60 dates.

The others might be in the running.

I am also thinking "Listen to the Music" by the Doobie Brothers is in the running.  It was released in 1972.
