Larry's straight down the middle fast break starting block was awesome.

Is it though? Yeah, he hit some shots to get to 10 points, but he once again was horrible on the boards. 2 rebounds in 26 minutes? In a game in which we got outrebounded by 11 and gave up 12 offensive boards? Even if I do put him on the list, there is no way he's going above Jennings, Ellis, Daniels, and Sanders.

Boxscore, boxscore, boxscore. Ersan played off Evans and along with Luc destroyed their offense for half a game with their defensive rotations. Other than a couple of his fouls he played a near perfect defensive game. Evans' only talent on offense involves crashing the boards while nobody is defending him. You can focus on the extra couple of O boards, I'm stoked with Ersan's game because the Nets scored about once every 4 minutes during that match-up. Ersan was better than Larry and Daniels.


Eh, maybe you're right, I dunno. I think Daniels also did some very nice things that didn't show up in the boxscore against the Nets. Of course, I don't have to go into the details on Larry's immense impact defensively that goes well beyond blocks and steals. Like I said, I really didn't like how Ersan got pushed around by Evans on the boards. Doesn't really matter though in the end - Daniels, Sanders, Ersan. Those guys don't really have a chance to win this poll. I realize that sometimes people will disagree with the selections I put out there and/or the order in which the players are listed. I hope for the most part though, it's been good over the years. :)
Can't wait to see the transformation in MCW's game under Kidd's tutelage in Milwaukee. I really think he's landed in a perfect situation in Milwaukee and is going to surprise a lot of people. Time will tell.

Definitely Jennings, he was the main reason we got that huge lead. Deron Williams looked like he was about to cry. :lol: For those that missed the game here are his highlights. I tried to cut out most of the bit where they were accusing Ilyasova of flopping.

I don't think he got credit for it but his handoff to screen to a curling Ellis in I think the second quarter was perfect.


That's an excellent point on the handoffs. I actually caught that a lot last night when watching. Sanders really struggles with those.

Ersan has definitely picked up the effort of late. I know he only got two boards last night, but he was way more active. For this team to play well they need Ersan to be a more consistent 3rd scorer who can have those blow up games once in a while.

There was no game, just stop it. If there had really been a game don't you think it would've been on TV?

Nice as Monta's game was I don't think he was a chance either given that Jennings destroyed their best player on both ends. Granted Deron's a fat ass these days but he's still a good player.

I go with Sanders. 3 blocks in the first 11:00 set the tone. His D in the first half kept them out front when the Bucks went cold. His offense was obviously terrible.....
We all need hope, but hope is not a plan.

This is seriously an easy one. Anyone that says it is anyone other than BJ is overthinking this. By a lot.

TS%> .600
scoring leader
asst leader
2nd in Rebs (tied with Sanders)
5! steals

Against BKLNs best player.

I mean I know he can take some maddening shots but on days they go in and his defensive gambles actually pay off its all worthwhile.
