I’m shocked that Anthony Edwards plays such a lazy style

313lbs and playing in the Ukraine pro league..all by 28 years old

The Minny late game melt down is magical.

I’d trade the Minnesota pick, Fitzgerald and Azubuike to Minnesota for Dave Benz and Jim Perterson

I feel like his only chance is to become as good as James Harden. He's got a lot of talent out of isolations; he's got the Harden step-back, good vision with a wide open floor, can pass with either hand, good at finishing at the rim with both athleticism and clever tempos. But he doesn't really know how to play basketball. He doesn't know how to fill a lane on the break; he doesn't know where to be in transition defense, he doesn't know how to do any of the read-and-react stuff NBA offenses do or move through congestion (he screens his own guards often). He also kind of sucks at rebounding despite having springs and being built like a defensive end.

Deal!

JimPete has really regressed this year. He's gone from a super-sharp coach breaking down Xs and Os for the audience to, still mostly that, but added a good amount of Abe Simpson talking about having an onion on his belt.

Wolves can definitely score, with Beasley and DLo able to get 30 on a given night.

Where are the 3 and D players.

Missed this one but the thing that stands out.. Grizz were down their 2 best players, DLo had a solid game on paper, KAT had a solid game on paper, Beasley had a solid game on paper.. and the Wolves lost by 11. Looks like bench mob was annihilated but still, this definitely bodes well for us

That said, Grizz are becoming a good watch for me. Scrappy young team. Only have had 3 games played between Morant, JJJ, and Winslow, and they're right around .500. Might be a good secondary team to follow

There's some major meltdowns going down in the MIN threads right now.

I feel bad, most of us remember what it's like to root for a team with little prospects of winning.

Oh well, that pick is looking nice!

they are looking like they will end up with a top 3 pick.
I can hawk a loogie eight feet in the air and catch it with my tongue.

Not sure the coach there is getting the most out of that roster.

I’m hoping pistons wiz and rockets take the top 3. Plus MIN used up all their good luck jumping to #1 this year. Their due for bad luck with the ping pong balls now.

Its no worse than 60-40 the pick conveys regardless of where they wind up in the standings.

Hearing Kerr talk about D’Lo going for something like 30+ in a half for us, and then we lose the game big is hella funny. But also let’s you peak into Kerrs dislike for his game.

No matter how many 30, 40, or even a 50 piece game D’Lo gives you, he almost always giving it right back.

KAT now diagnosed with Covid, so he'll be out at least a while more (tonight's game for them is already postponed). Good for us, still feel bad for him especially in light of what he's been through personally in the last year. Perhaps not many families on earth more devastated by Covid than KAT's.
