    Thanks for answering my mailbag question.

    1. Aaron, I think you should get the dog.

    2. Dumb fans in the NBA are the ones who evaluate players by their # of championship rings & their scoring average. They also believe Kobe Bryant is still the best player alive. So basically Lakers fans. And Knicks fans too.

    While I consider myself an analytically-minded fan, I can’t help but notice an encouraging physical trait of Oswlado Arcia. He has the biggest forearms/wrists since Harmon Killebrew, right? I mean, those babies are crazy!

    The recent blown saves by Mariano Rivera got me thinking about relievers, which got me thinking about Joe Nathan. Somewhat random question, but say he has 1 or 2 more good years … do you think he’s a Hall of Famer? Probably a strange question to most people, but if you imagine that Rivera (the greatest closer of all time) never existed, Joe Nathan may be considered the best reliever of the past 10 years.

    Also: Aaron, you should watch Game of Thrones. You can watch it on the elliptical without missing much.

    Plus, Ricky Rubio is doing it: https://twitter.com/rickyrubio9/status/367203069475692544
