He’s going to be wearing number 2 Stu said.

Frank also said he didn’t know if he wanted him to play Wednesday or not as his debut

We have 25 regular season games left.
Ideally we’d want the core guys to have 10-15 games to gel together

Just realized Frank Vogel was the coach when Hibbert made the All Star selection and was a staple to the All Defense Teams and consistent candidate for DPOY

Are y'all excited now or what?!

On paper sure, but Wes, Gasol, Morris, KCP, Kuz all have been so inconsistent. I'm just hoping it's the championship hangover & early restart. Once AD & Bron come back, together with AD2 I'm hoping to see more synergy and them firing on all cylinders, just to show they can still turn the switch on.

but OT: Love the addition. He'll provide some necessary rebounding and fill that void that McGee & especially Howard gave us. We should always win the rebounding stats without a doubt. Now let's try to add a sniper from the buyout to complete the roster.

Long shot but I'm looking forward to LA busting out an ultra big 5 with

Bron at PG
Kuz at SG
AD at 3
Gasol as stretch 4
Drummond in the middle

They'll be killed in PnRs but just interesting to see lol

Curious to see how teams counter our big front line when everyone is healthy.

Rebounding and defense wins championships. What a steal. This is huge.

New nickname suggestion:

Robber Pelinka,
:meditate: :meditate: :meditate: :meditate:


We’ve lacked a banger down low who can rebound and get freebie putbacks. Now we have maybe the best low post space-eater in the league.

This almost completes the roster. I wish we could’ve swapped Matthews for Reddick or Rondo.

Robber P, search the earth for a three point shooter. Or lock Caruso, KCP, Mathews, Schröder in the gym with a new shooting coach until the playoffs.

:rockon:

Who are the opponents going to double team now? Lol.

Feeling good about our chances of a repeat.

EDIT: Just don’t start him cold. Give him a week of practice.
2020-2021 rotations, regular season
PG: Caruso 20 | Schroeder 24 | THT 4
SG: Pope 20 | THT 16 | Matthews 12
SF: James 30 | Kuzma 16 | Dudley 2
PF: AD 28 | Harrell 12 | Kuzma 6 | Morrris 2
C: Drummond 24 | Gasol 12 | Harrell 10 | Kostas 2

Totally my bad.
I moved people around on the list and obviously had Kuz in there but accidentally left him off the final list.

I'm curious how Vogel uses them in games... I half expect them not to play all that much together during the season... I can see Vogel saving the Murder lineup of LeBron/AD/Drummond for the post season when we focus on locking teams down and slowing the pace...

Let them think the pairing isn't working... But run the hell out of it in practice...

He should and imo will play a combined Mcgee/Howard role. The scary thing is he has potential to play that role better than either of those guys because of his youth, but the concern is that he would need to play as selflessly and team oriented as those guys did. That said though, there shouldn't be any question regarding him playing that limited role. He may play more minutes than either Mcgee or Dwight did, but come playoff time he should be have his role minimized in certain matchups in the same exact way. We desperately needed someone to play the Mcgee/Dwight role, and of course to get that guy for free is a huge huge addition. I don't expect him to finish games. I don't expect him to play a high number of minutes. And I don't expect him to play at all/more than minimal minutes in certain matchups in the offseason. But he will thrive off playing next to AD and Lebron when the times comes, and will also provide much a much needed interior presence as we continue to deal with injuries.

A great, great pick up overall, and exactly what we needed. The best part about all of it is that we didn't lose anyone to fill a huge missing gap.

Bruh, the GB is talking all sorts of nonsense. They actually want the NBA to change the buyout process because we got Dre. LMAO....

Amazing how Nets can stockpile a whole lot of stars and former all stars and nobody bats an eye, but we make ONE move and the GB is losing their ****.

Anyway, WELCOME DRUMMOND. Lets make these whiners cry some more!
