If Giannis was playing point guard...

I absolutely love our bench's reaction. Those savvy vets are really really into such a common play in a basketball game :o

Indeed they did. My favorite is the lady in the white shirt lower left behind our bench. She covers her mouth as if to say:

"OH, that was a dirty dirty play, Giannis!"

Er, Tobias barely got off the bench. I imagine he rarely played with Jennings.

Tobias started last season. A big reason why he didn't last was Jennings icing him out.


My apologies. Our consistently poor handling of young players has addled by brain.

I like how he finished against Ibaka after the pretty strong shove at around 2:05.

The same can be said about Gery's "agenda" or "bias" against Larry Sanders. Yeah, Woelfel sure does seem "obsessed" or "always hating." But in this case it's for good reason. I'm officially done with Larry. He's been nothing but a huge headache since getting paid. Always instigating opponents. Mocking refs. I liked him better when he was a misunderstood, fiery underdog who stuck up for his teammates. Now he's a complete side show. With zero offensive game. I'd trade him yesterday for the right deal.

Eh, apples and oranges. Tobias wasn't a ball-handling/passing savant and never looked nearly as good as Giannis does when starting.

The amazing thing about this play is the Giannis gets stuck in the pick, then fight around it to fly down the lane to block Durants shot, while all the vets are standing and watching Durant burn them. I bet Durant was surprised!

Those Giannis highlights above are pretty ridiculous.

Obviously he was fired up to play Durant, but still amazing stuff.

Thanks for those highlights. Much more efficient than trying to watch the whole game on DVR. I noted that Giannis doesn't hesitate to pass the ball to Ridnour when he is open. Not even a nod of acknowledgement from Ridnour on some nice passes.

We really need to ride it out with Sanders. A guy with his intensity/temper can bottom out with a team that plays this poorly and doesn't care. For all of his faults, Larry cares about winning and once we land our top 3 pick and start building the right way he'll be a huge asset. Based on the fall out with Neal, its pretty clear Sanders was in the right with what took place in that locker room.

We need a guy with passion (and slightly crazy) to give us an edge as a young team.

On another note, If Drew and our management has any sense we'll give Wolters the keys to the PG job starting right now for the rest of the season so we can get a long look at him. He'll be a huge benefit for not only Giannis but Henson and Sanders in the pick and roll.

If we are lucky enough to land Wiggins we are in great shape. I think we can build something with this rotation.
Wolters is that pass first, big, point guard that can help get the most out of our players (rather than icing them out), we'd have a sg/sf combo that outshines ray and big dog in their prime with their amazing athleticism, and we'd have a long as hell front line that can frustrate teams. From there we have a nice bench already with a combo guard off the bench in knight (provided he's not allowed to chuck), a 6th man in Middleton, size off the bench with Rad, and a stretch 4 in Ersan.

The key as mentioned earlier though is to land the right veteran coach that can teach these guys the right way. I would absolutely love Karl. It could be a nice "no pressure" last stop for his coaching career. But this is what i want to see next season, a 9 man rotation that can grow together and compliments one another well.

Wiggins/Knight

Our bench had the same reaction I have when I watch the Warriors play.

That bench reaction really shows just how great that "veteran" presence has been.
