Im so sad Haliburton isn't on our team. He may be the best player in this draft. Luckily, Wiseman may end up the most impactful just because of his combo of size and skill.

I’d take Wiseman over anybody drafted in not only this years draft , but last years too



And I love everything about Haliburton..



I’m afraid Zion is too fat to last ..


Does anybody love listening to Kendrick Perkins talk hoops as much as I do..Loved him as a player during the Celtics run and even more now ..

Kendrick is an asshat. But yeah, Zion is too fat and it seems like he might fizzle out really quick.

Kyrie going to take all the big shots in the 4th quarter.

He was like 3-16 and then he got hot, scored like 15 points in the 4th quarter.

KD was a spectator like the rest of the Nets.

At OKC, Westbrook took too many big shots. At GSW, Curry got too much credit.

Now he's playing second fiddle to Kyrie.

Miles Bridges was the best player on the floor in that Charlotte game

Bridges is becoming a beast and Rozier has been hot. LaMelo had his best game as a pro. At the end of the year Charlotte will be slightly better than last year and maybe fighting for an 8 seed.

Anyone else notice that Julius Randle is having a helluva start to his season?

It’s not surprising to me. He was always immensely talented, in the Draymond mold but even more skilled. The problem was between the ears. This is a short but eye opening start for him, but let’s see him do this for an extended period.

Chris Boucher is blowing up in Toronto. It's an organizational embarrassment that he was given exactly one minute of playing time with Golden State.

Just watching the Utah V Phoenix game here, and it is so clear that Wiseman needs to watch Gobert play, he's so underrated it's ridiculous. He's making Ayton look like an amateur.

Ayton, also to add, looks like a bit of a stiff to me. He's really slow. He reminds me Derrick Favors.

Three Point Percentage 2020-2021 NBA season

Steph Curry: 31.8%
Ben Simmons: 100%

Ayton not a stiff. Maybe just a bad matchup for him. Gobert is a smart defender.

I think Paul may have Ayton into MIP player status by the end of the year

Probably not the best game to watch Ayton in, to get a gauge on where he is at as a player now. Gobert neutered him completely. He seriously looked slow and with Paul now dominating the ball with Booker, he is rendered to a screen and roller. I was not impressed at all.

I really wish we signed Crowder with our MLE.
