Seems kind of silly to say that this early, but I agree... That team is not going to be in the playoff hunt without him, so might as well shut him down and let him work on diet and conditioning for next season.

Looking at him, it makes you wonder if he took a **** ton of steroids in High School.

While I agree about his freakish size and strength.... it does seem suspicious. I would also point out the last guy with that level of athleticism also missed his first season due to injury.... Blake Griffin. While Griffin's game was a little more rounded the similarities in reliance on athleticism are remarkably similar. Griffin has built a pretty solid game to offset his pending athletic decline. Zion will have to do the same IMHO.

What’s going on with Iggy? I bet you Logo is quietly working day and night on deal proposals for Memphis.

Rob, you’re not done yet. We need Iggy.

I want to see a giant lineup of

PG: Iggy
SG: Kuzma
SF: James
PF: Davis
C: McGee

Defend that size, Portland. Or any team.

We do have an ace up our sleeve though, Rob used to be his agent up until he took the Lakers job.

I hope that helps Memphis be okay with handing us the championship. I hope they can find a way to see it as payback for the gift of Marc Gasol.

Ingram looks pretty good for the pels... He Okafor and Holiday make a nice core... Hart doing his thing too. Lonzo sitting down the stretch in the 4th though.

I for one think he was injured at duke and they didn’t take care of it back then with the shoe stuff which is why the sit out the rest of the season stuff started back then

Ball and Ingram unfortunately looked little different than they did here. Ball once again not on the floor down the stretch. They hung in there until OT then collapsed.

Was it the only double digit blow out loss of the opening round?

Let’s go after this guy. Baller.

Assuming they won’t resign him, let’s create a package for his expiring, snag him during AS week.

Edit: He’d be a sick starting point on this team. Perfect fit. Junk yard dog defender, makes the big three.

Watching some other games... trying to figure out who's with who after this offseason. I had forgotten the Dallas trades. They look pretty good (although it's against NO) and fairly balanced. They are a player or two away from being legit probably but on the path. NO with a second straight game of pretty significant -'s for the starters.

Boston lost first one and at this writing is in a close one against Toronto. They do not appear to have taken a step forward. Phoenix added nicely to a truly bad team then the Ayton suspension. OKC could be 0-2 with my most hated player ever CP3. If they could go 0-82 I'd watch every game. The Knicks have looked truly bad so far and Brooklyn seems little changed so far.

It’s painful to watch Ingram and Lonzo realizing their Laker potential in NO. If their respective first games are indications of what the season is gonna be like, I’d prefer Ingram’s defense over LBJ’s.

I know, playoffs LeBron turns it up. Let’s get there, then let’s talk. Or let’s get a player who turns it up all season instead. Like Kobe, Magic, Worthy.

I’m waiting for that smash mouth defense, Frank! Lonzo and Ingram are (as expected) looking very good defensively.

I can't stand to watch Ingram on offense.

He always seems so slow to get from the initial move to the shot. He's got 20 again but if you can have 20 and be inconsequential he does. I'm not sure Ball helps that team much. OTOH he'd help Dallas.
