This game was valuable for evaluating the players for extended minutes and freedom of play. Learned a lot where the players were allowed to do more.


I think it helps the confidence of the deeper bench players too. Now they know they can win without 4 of the top 8 guys on the roster including the best player on the planet.

I'm not quite sure what "sleepy eyes" mean (never heard of this expression until now), but if it is what I'm thinking, then it's not true... Dwyane Wade has sleepy eyes and won!


I don't think of Wade as having sleepy eyes. Two guys that come to mind are Brandon Ingram and Sam Perkins. Some of it is also demeanor, because the "sleepy" guys are often also not outwardly expressive. But that alone isn't enough (Kawhi).


Tmac also had big time sleepy eyes.

Just a very polished, brainy, solid, productive player.

Easily an All-Star in year 3 at the latest and, barring unexpected injuries and very bad team management around him, on the way to a HOF career.

That was me. Guys with sleepy eyes suck.


Good bc if this was about me joking about Wiseman's look last year, I'd be a little worried for the poster here

Michael Beasley had sleepy eyes.

Maybe the guys with sleepy eyes are just stoned all season while the other ten percent of the league's players are off winning chips

Yeah, and Bette Davis couldn't play NBA defense either.
