That's the most negative vid I've seen about Green.

Like the fact he spent more time on Mitchell than the others since they get enough coverage already.

He seems very high on Cade, as most people are

I think there is a very good reason to be skeptical of Green, as there is a very good reason to be skeptical of bigmen entering the league.

Both bigmen, and gaurds like Green all hope to become Hakeem, or Jordan, and way more often then not, they end up in the Wiggens, and Thompson mold.

On the other hand, skilled players like Cade, have more things going for them, with a much higher skill cap.

Agreed. I mean that's just the way the league is trending towards right now. There's a reason why there isn't a dominate SG or PF leading the charts in the MVP ladder in many, many years. You have to be mutli-faceted in every part of your game and exceptional like Giannis, Luka, Jokic, Embiid to break out of the mold of being just a hustle 3 and D guy that many of these usual SGs and PF/C's are. That's a tall ask of anyone

If Green can be a high class version of Wiggins, I think Houston is in fairly good shape. But obviously for him to be billed for the hype, he needs to be much more than that though

Yeah, that was almost literally 5 minutes on Mitchell, 2 minutes on Cade, and a minute and a half on Green.

Mitchell was my pick if the Pistons fell out of the top 4. Plus the kid's got a great last name.

Turns out there is a 70 minute documentary on Cunningham's life up to now being released October 2nd (at least the first segment) by Overtime Films. Here's a link to the article: https://theathletic.com/2842357/2021/09/22/cade-cunningham-justin-fields-and-the-new-overtime-docs-that-give-an-inside-look-at-rising-stars-of-pro-sports/

Here's the trailer for the Justin Fields video they released:
Read on Twitter


Should be a pretty cool watch! It'll be available on YouTube.

Absolutely. You can't just decide to hold your consensus #1 draft pick, face of the franchise rookie out of four preseason games in two weeks' time over a rolled ankle. PEOPLE NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!!

one thing i really like about cade so far is that he is getting EXACTLY where he wants on the court.

Image

he shot terribly to start the year but this shows where his ATTEMPTS are from. there's virtually no mid-range and a heavy dose of threes or shots in the paint. compare that to two elite players:

Image
Image

the volume is a little different but the main thing is that cade has the ability to get deep into the paint seemingly whenever he tries to. he doesn't even have many fast break points to bloat his attempts in the paint.

ladies and gentlemen, we got a good one.

So are the two people who voted the pick an E going to fess up? Because I’d love to hear the logic.

Overall happy with the pick and early returns. Wasn't happy to hear he's 2 inches shorter than listed. But looks good, team leader, floor general, nba doesn't look to fast for him. a poor mans luca, which is still really good. Might not be a superstar, but will be a all star at some point.

If you exclude those first 2 god-awful games (write them off as his preseason) then he’s averaging 16.7 ppg on 40% shooting and 33% from the three point line.

Still inefficient but that’s par for the course for a rookie perimeter player. I’d like to see his percentages go up and he needs to get to the line more if he’s going to be our main offensive weapon, but it’s a sufficiently impressive start.

He’d benefit from benching Killian. I know, I know.

Disagree with only the last part.

He'd benefit from removing Grant from the starting lineup.

I'm surprised to see you souring on Grant this early. Even though I know where you're coming from in terms of him taking shots away from Cade and the young guys.

I think he's still steady enough to not be a net negative. I wish he was more spot up shooter oriented instead of going for those mid range shots that teams are giving him

Because he didn't have a training camp or preseason, I'm really interested to see how Cade's splits look month to month.

From Nov to Dec I'd hope we see less turnovers, more assists, and a higher FG%. Those should really all almost be a given but I'm hoping we see some significant growth there in his game from November stats to March stats.

It will be interesting to see how Frank and Cade pair in the starting backcourt together. Frank pretty much go to start there when Cade was out but I actually think those two would make an interesting pair as starters, IF and ONLY IF Frank is hitting those 3s. Cade has made several really nice penetration drives to kick out to 3 point shooters lately and Frank could really benefit from those open catch and shoot looks. I think they both could average about 18 PPG paired together, if Frank is hitting those shots.

Me and a few others posted before the start of the season, that we would like them both starting together, and that's exactly the reason.

Our starting line up should've been Cade/Frank/Bey/Grant/KO. That would've been a solid team.

Hayes and especially Stewart have no business starting, they're hurting the rest of the team.

I was wrong about Garza tho, I thought he would be luck to ever play in a NBA game, and he proved he could have a solid career as a 10 mins backup. He could have a much better career than Psycho T for example.

The main reason for this thread is, imagine if Cade was 6'8.

Seriously, I can't believe there are people who still bring his height and try to make a serious post. :banghead:

Ben Wallace was what? 6'6? He should be removed from the HoF because of that, how dare you sell us a lie NBA!!!!!!!!! Ben Wallace was listed as 6'8 and I want to watch a 6'8 player!!!!!!!!!! I want my money back.
