Why did D'Antoni take Embiid out on the last defensive possession after he had a great block on the one before? I can understand wanting Draymond in the game but why not for someone else? Weird.

I think Heritage could drop a bit after release just because so many people will be trying to flip and take their profit at the same time, similar to what happened with TC last year.

Is Blowout about to switch to their new website?

Current site is down for maintenance which is something I've never noticed before.

Hope not because I looked at the new format when it was in beta and hated it.
