Very impressive numbers. He may end up being the best wing from the draft after all.

Jared Sullinger has quietly been a g-dsend for the Celtics. Amazingly consistent for a rookie.

I think they're on an historic pace.


Considering it is one fan, not multiple, who posts the videos and you're all certainly welcome to post videos of the rookies of your teams, I don't see the problem. I am sure if there was a higher concentration of Hornets fans on realGM we'd be seeing Davis highlights after each game, since he is also a joy to watch. And now that Beal has picked it up we're seeing videos of him, and he is fun to watch. I'd certainly like to see videos of MKG out there, if anyone is making them, posted by the Bobcats fans as he is possibly the most fun to watch of all since he's always going 110%.

We are competitive in most of our games, and there isn't players on the team that most poor record teams have that make me say "I want this guy off the team". I really like the makeup and pretty much everyone except Austin Rivers has played better than you would expect from an individual standpoint, we just need them to gel.

coaching. Really was hoping at some point we'd have fired nate and promoted monty. knew he'd be a good coach.

Not my vid but here's MKG's latest vid worthy game:

I thought Royce White was worth a late 1st round/early 2nd pick by the worst team in NBA history.

Lillard is really lucky to be one a good team with great teammates.

It makes him look a lot better than he would had he gone to a bad situation. This isn't a knock. Just an observation.

Glad to see a four year college guy succeed this well in the league. Some of these kids in school who aren't projected to go top 5 should take notes. Lillard lets the game come to him and hardly forces anything. He is the most ready guy I've seen in a while. Definitely not your prototypical first year player. Those 4 years at Weber state really helped him for the league.

Lillard is a BIG reason why they're 4 game above .500 right now.

NBA TV is going to do a thing about the Blazers and how they're contenders right now because of Damian Lillard after the commercial break.

Wonder how Wall/Beal backourt will come along. Alot of potential right there.

Brad Beal January stats (5 game sample size)

eFG%: 50.6
TS%: 51.9
FG%: 42.0
FT%: 60.0 (1.8/3.0)
3PT%: 56.0 (2.8/5.0)
PPG: 18.2
RPG: 4.0
APG: 3.4
STL: 1.2

Very impressive. Needs to keep shooting well and start to get to the line more.
