Kevin Porter clearly has a lot of talent, but he really needs to get himself under control and refine his game and his shot. Hopefully he puts in the work this Summer with the rest of our kids.

Agreed, somewhat like how Sexton has learned how to better use his speed. Both have a long way to go but clearly have the talent to be above average NBA players.

Vague, obvious, condescending, and you could say this about any player with "clear talent" in the entire league.

Let's go Cavs fans, we're better than this.

If you're trying to uphold higher posting standards, you're doing a rotten job of it.

I've been preaching patience all season with the kids, and I'm going to keep on doing so regardless of what you think, or their particular high and low points.

Condescending? How so? I think KPJ and Kryrie had about the same amount of college games under their belt. I would say that Kryrie was much further along when he got to the NBA. Waaaay different situations, but if the destination is the player harnessing his talent to the fullest I don't see any issue with the original post. Maturity comes along differently for everyone, and for some it doesn't. As a Cavs fan, and as a person I am totally rooting for KPJ.

Grown pretty tired of the same patronizing takes that really just say nothing at all, but are posted just to make clear that you're the judge and jury.

There is nothing unique that you're observing about Kevin Porter Junior in particular in saying those things. You could be talking about anybody.

For decades I've read the same takes on multiple boards from the same few people saying nothing. Just going out of their way to be patronizing, and establish their position as the judge.

Every rookie needs to get themselves "under control" and "work hard" and "refine their game and shot" in the offseason. That's what offseasons are for!

It's disrespectful to the players. They know they need to do those things. We know they need to do those things. And they're not your "kids".

"TO FULLFILL YOUR POTENTIAL YOU NEED TO WORK HARD AND BE SMART AND STAY OUT OF TROUBLE AND......" blah blah blah blah.

Come on! We're better than this!

Feel free to show us the way. Not sure what you think trolling the board achieves.

now harnessed a semi- permanent hypnagogic state of consciousness
