If you are a really bad defensive player at the PG position, this will be the story of your career no matter how many points you score. Teams just attack you off the dribble and score at will. The other teams just get a switch where they have their best attacking player off the dribble to have Dlo on them, then just attack which collapses the defense and they get easy buckets over and over again.

Trae Young being left off Team USA is really strange. There's 44 guys involved, but he's not one of them. Is there something going on?

I mean, it makes no sense to me, unless he's got some dual citizenship with some other country. Head scratcher.

Imagine dunking over 7'6 Taco Fall, then getting a 9 from a WNBA player and the Black Panther

Should bring back 0.5 points. Was too hard to seperate Jones and Gordon.

Jones Jnr deserved it though. Dude is a pogo stick.

I feel for gordon. arguably two top-5 dunk contests of the last decades and didn't get the trophy.

Rockets to acquire Jeff Green and Demare Carrol.
Man, they are really doubling down on a bunch of wings and jacking tons of 3s.

1 thing you can say about Darryl Morey, is that he is a do'er. Dude is as active a GM as you'll ever see, never stops wheeling and dealing and trying stuff to make stuff happen. If this doesn't work, he might trade all of the wings and go for a 5 man PG lineup, just because.

Wow didn't know Trae Young was averaging almost 30 a game.

Efficiency is good, not elite at 44/36.9.

He's getting all the shots he wants though, over 20 shots a game, including almost 10 from 3.

But what is surprising is he gets over 9 FTAs a game.

I don't know the advanced stats but obviously the Hawks aren't winning a lot. They need some of their other young players to take a leap or two.

GR3 started at SF last night for the 76ers and Burks got a decent amount of minutes off the bench. I was curious how they were going to work out with Philly as I see them both providing some needed punch. Haven't got a look at any stats yet, but will be interesting to see how it plays out for them. What'd we get back for them? 3 second rounders?

They are leaning on Burks a bit late in games.

what I find most interesting about the 6ers, is that they seem so much worse when Simmonds is out, than when Embiid is

Will sound weird but the more I watch Milwaukee the more I feel BroLo is their most important (not best ) player. Everything they do defensively revolves around him.

He's a come a long way

3 point shooting, elite rim protecting, big time screen setting, ego checked centres that are consistently healthy? Yeah, he's an ENORMOUS target for a championship aspiring team.

You know who I love on the Bucks? The big ragu Divicenzo. He totally blunted losing Brogdon.

Yet another dude Mylie called way pre draft - idk how nobody has hired you to lead scouting yet

Return to Golden State Warriors
