The Justise news sucks because it seems that with every news update, it becomes more likely that he won’t reach his full potential (barring a miraculous Steph Curry-esque durability 180). Rook #1 will always have a special place in my heart, so I’m wishing him the best.

FWIW emphasis on "contact" It makes little sense for him to come back this szn after all that layoffs anyways. Griz have to go straight into playoff mode to keep that 8th seed from Pels and Blazers

**** crazy. Some bodies just aren't built for the day to day grind. These boys are playing hard. It's something that a guy like LeBron (pretty sure he's part cyborg) can play like he does and last so long.

Yes. LeBron is criminally underrated for his durability. Most NBA players (seriously) get injured left to right in practice/workout. I don't care what you take, it's insane to go 17 years with your biggest injury being a groin strain.

Winslow though, is on a made of glass side of spectrum.

Yep. Winslow's on his way to being done at age 24. Hard to believe. Felt like we really nailed that pick at the time. He's been cursed since.

Winnie :(

Was looking forward to seeing him play. Sucks he’s basically lost two years to injury already. Don’t know if we’ll see the best of him, but that Point Winnie run was a trip.

Lucky for Justise none of his injuries are recurring injuries but he's earned his spot on the oft-injured/glass team. Nearing prime age, all he can do is work on his body and hope things work out

Wasn't really in a sports watching mood, and 1/4th of the reason to watch just went out; rest easy bby
Long Live Winnie. Mamba siempre

The Alex Caruso hype has always been funny to me. He's basically just Tyler Johnson playing on a national stage. If anything TJ was better when you compare their numbers.

He's just one of those, do-good-things-when-on-the-court players

Like Ish Smith, or Beno; basically Lakers Beno. His hype is mostly meme

Agreed - lots of solid, hard-working players. If they get their opportunity at the right time, or with the right teammates, they can earn a fat contract. Many don’t though, and have to eek out a career one season at a time.

Carushow is way better than Ish or Beno. He's an absolute stud on defense and is serviceable enough on offense. I agree that he's close to prime TJ, but prime TJ got 52mils from Pat Riley, so the hype is somewhat deserved.

Oh, and memes ofc
