Garza goes off for 40 and 20, 5 blocks, 4 steals.

He becomes the next Jokic, we never look back. He, Cade, Killian, Beef Stew, and Bey lead us to 4 straight titles and a dynasty beginning next year.

That's my plan, and I'm sticking to it.

Garza also perfoms a 360 degree piledriver Zangief-style on Giannis in the first quarter. Giannis bounces up off the ground afterward in slow motion like on SF2 as well...

Watching this causes Bobby Portis's eyes to finally pop out of his head (they aren't far off at times now)...

Oh right. Basketball things...

With Bobby Portis starting at center for the Bucks, wouldn’t Trey Lyles be a much better suited matchup?

We've got 6 rookies over the past two seasons (3 in 2020 and 3 in 2021) and it would be pretty crazy if Cade wasn't the best of those 6 in 4 year when his rookie deal is up, but I certainly wouldn't be upset if one of the other 5 becomes the all-star we all want and need.

Garza would be the dark horse for sure, but he was an elite NCAA player so he's certainly used to carrying the load of a team.... and he seemingly has a great work ethic so I wouldn't count him out of eventually being an impactful player in the league. Every year at least 2 or 3 2nd rounders on average end up being good NBA rotation players and having long careers in the league so hopefully he's one of them.

Also wouldn't be the first time a late draft pick used an injury to show themselves as being a great talent and end up being the being an MVP in the league.... Mr Tom Brady is of course the ultimate example of that.

That said, I'd still be really happy if Garza just works himself into a rotation spot by the end of next year with us... Being an average backup center in the league would be a big win for us for where he was drafted.

Portis with his agility will be a tough cover on the perimeter for sure for Garza but the good news is we will probably loose no matter what so it doesn't matter.

Don't use Trey Lyles and "better suited" in the same sentence again. Ever.

I do love Garza's rainbow 3s though.

I'm looking for improvements in decision making from Josh Jackson, Lyles and Lee. Lee is my best hope. I'd be pleased to see Garza getting fed in the post, particularly when the threes aren't dropping. I'd also like to see Lee in the backcourt with Cunningham for enough minutes to see if that can help Lee return to form.

I expect the Pistons to lose and that none of what I'd like to see will happen. Still worth watching.

Can't score, but let's not let Garza attempt a shot or 2, let's just shoot 3 after 3 after 3.....

This could be the worst loss of the season, the players body language just has that "What's the use" kind of look

Ok, I was gone for a few days and I need some help understanding a few changes, why is Luka freaking Garza our #1 option on offense right now?
