    From Ball Don't Lie-

    Earlier this month, [Wrigley] brought a custom, tricked-out Skittles vending machine to his house and promised to keep it stocked with Skittles for at least three years.

    Rose gets the machine and the Skittles for free; the Skittles brand has a chance of getting more love from Rose; and the Bulls, I guess, hope Rose's sugar highs peak at the right time.

    The folks at Wrigley would only confirm the following facts: The picture is real. The machine holds every variety of Skittles. And it even tempts him, in his own voice, whenever he walks by the machine.

    Not only as Skittles delicious, but the machine looks rad, it was free, has his name on it, and oh yea, it speaks in your voice whenever you walk pas it! I bet a burglar would be scared out of his mind if he walked by that thing in the middle of the night and it spoke to him.."Would you like to try some Skittles" or some variation of that. That is easily one of the coolest perks I've seen. Must be nice...

    can I get one of those in m&m's?

    Quite a perk, yes. I'm sure he's built up quite a metabolism.

    Rose, much like Odom, is a notorious candy junkie, so this is right up his alley.
    Check this article about his candy habits out here-
     "He just didn’t eat - You don’t eat and your stomach’s supposed to be hurting ... He didn’t eat last night or this morning," Dozier said. "We’ve been having problems with him, making him eat all this year, so it’s nothing major to worry about ... He just eats candy and pineapple and syrup. He never really eats real food. Eating grilled cheese sandwiches, things kids eat. He’s 19, he eats like he’s eight ... He needs (a food pyramid). Someone needs to put one up in his room."

    I'd love that machine but would fear how many packs of skittles I'd go through in a day...

    Call me crazy, but isn't it a bit narcississtic to have YOUR OWN voice be the one you hear?  I bet LBJ already has one!  Give me that machine with Halle Berry's voice, and watch me bleed "rainbow"!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
