Coby looked pretty good. I'm encouraged.

Just finished watching that. Coby made shots, Otto, Val. Lavine looked typically awesome, and he had a massive dunk like a 3rd of the way through. Wasn't actually encouraged by what I saw from Dunn, shot was off and made some poor passing decisions.

I dislike that video. Again scrubs having a ball and Lauri getting no touches. Fire Boylen. And get me a coach finally.

Passing and handle were improved. Looked confident and fast. Turnovers will still be there for a while. And def was solid.

I think the last thing you should be concerned about is Lauri getting touches. He and Zach will both get 15+ shots a game and will be the focus of the offense.

We got a coach and he’s keeping everyone accountable for each other that includes Lauri. Also it’s one part of practice I think you’re analyzing too much of just a scrimmage.

Val definitely was encouraging seeing him knock down 3s. Dunn I guess at least wasn’t hesitant it’s just nothing dropped. I love the thought of the suicides mixed with free throws at the end. Nice way to keep the guys on each other about turnovers and free throws. If they want to physically work less they have to fundamentally get better and do it together nobody got picked on.

Brief thoughts on the open scrimmage. I was there for about half of it.

1) None of our PGs inspired overwhelming confidence. I know, Cobi and Sato haven't even played a game for us, so I draw zero conclusions from that. Just saying.

2) Gafford moves well and looked poised, if he's not already better than Felicio I'd be shocked. Yeah I know that's not a high hurdle but still that would be good.

3) Zach makes me laugh, he just glides out there as if he's been cast in Dazed & Confused, and yet he's so dangerousf. He looked capable of skinning anybody out there at will. made his shots too.

4) Arci was Arci, limited game and consummate pro. And Otto was Otto, he knew exactly where to be and was quietly good.

5) Lauri was the surprise to me, he was playing harder than anybody and barking. Acted as if he was the team leader.

6) Thad was still figuring out where he fit in with the guys. He did have one cool "spin cycle" move, as Stacey would say.

We have enough options out there to be competent. In theory not that much different than last years nets or clippers, hopefully we can put it together and have everyone play their role and to their strengths like those two teams did last year.

I dont overanalyzing. 3rd year now and counting with Lauri getting no touches or plays run for him.

Boylen yelled at him several times, more than with the rest of the guys. Tough love, I guess.

Not sure Lauri should get into the barking thing. Doesn't seem like it's really him.

Besides - if you're gonna bark at your teammates in the NBA, you better make sure you're the undisputed alpha dog of your team. Lauri is not, and I don't think we we even need a guy like that in this group. Jut play hard and try to lead by example.
