Post#1 » by Stillwater » Sat Dec 12, 2020 4:13 am

I am interested to see what Maker looks like and am also interested in Stevens defensive ability.
I would be lying if didnt say I am also interested in seeing Okoro posterize somebody as well
vote for as many as you like

I obviously want to see the guys we drafted. I have a mild interest in seeing whether Exum can stay healthy and play more consistently.

It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

Definitely want to see Windler and Okoro in action. Also it looks like Sexton is out for the game for cautionary reasons after spraining his ankle in practice.

Whoever looks like they might help beyond filling out the bench, but I have high hopes for Okoro, Windler, and Wade who all should make the rotation thanks to the compressed schedule.

Mostly Okoro, Windler and the "quicker stronger" Garland. KPJ, but I don't think he is playing tonight. Has McGee even reported yet?
Thon Makur is someone else I am interested in seeing.

Wade looks like a homeless man's Kevin Love to me. If he ends up being anything other than a career third unit guy, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Yeah I am a little intrigued with his vision and ability to pass out of the low post in small ball lineups but at the same time am not sold he can hold up defensively in the modern nba. Maybe that is where Maker leaves a impression instead...
Wade was once a first round projected prospect before the injuries so breaking into the rotation in the 2nd half of the season assuming 1 front court player is moved seems reasonable.

well I messed up the poll adding Wade as an option... clearly most of you are mainly interested in drafted players , I like to watch for the ones with a huge chip on the shoulder to break into the league after being slept on. I think Stevens could be that guy defensively but I also think Maker might be a diamond in the rough if he has finally got his bbiq caught up to his skillset physically.He fell out iof favor and basically this is his last gallon of fuel before a long walk home. I expect him to play his ass off

Noooope. Ill recap what you missed.

-Garland looks extremely confident. God there are seriously shades of Kyrie there with the way he dribbles and drives. He's playing with a certain swagger he didn't have last year.

-The Cavs have turned it over approximately 232 times on failing to be able to throw entry passes or inbounding.

-Thry looked to feature Love early and often. He looks like Kevin. Great body language. Looks like he's bought in.

-Drummond really is taking it too far with his desire to be a mobile big. Too much spot up and dribbling.

-Windler looks like he hasn't played in over a year.

-Exum looks bad. So many turnovers and soft passes getting intercepted.

-Cedi is really trying to assert himself offensively for better or worse.

I've been impressed by him. If he is a good 3/D guy I would love to have him Okoro in the rotation on the wing.

Windler looks suuuuper rusty

Yeah I mean a guy who is known as a 3pt specialist airballing 3 threes and another off the side of the backboard is not a good look

interesting because although he was a highly efficient shooter in college I always thought the sell as a first round prospect was mainly his bbiq as a cutter moving without the ball and making plays within the flow of a good offense sort of like a Gordon Hayward archtype but of course the best of him wont shine through playing on an inefficiently run offense around him.
