Didn't get the chance to focus on it, but who can Strus guard? Can he guard 1-3? Educate me.

My guess is that Precious Achiuwa will be in the rotation from the get-go, and that is really good news.

I don't think it's about trashing Silva as much as it is about figuring out the numbers. I think Strus has played his way onto this roster...

Idk. It seems on any given night this team would be more likely in need of interior enforcement than another perimeter player. Someone also mentioned the 2 way guys can be active for 50 games so no need to choose.

Silva has high energy, athleticism, and motor but low BBIQ and fundamentals. Precious seems to have all of Silva's strengths but none of those weaknesses (yet). Even if Precious ends up being Young UD as his ceiling, that's an excellent pick.

Harkless is playing out of position. We can't treat him like Jae, he is too small and not that level of a shooter. Put him at the 3 and let him guard the wings and he will look much more comfortable.

KZ got borderline star potential but he needs the reps. His skill set is too good to be left on the bench.

Precious has incredible size and presence on the court. How is he listed 30 pounds lighter than bam? Seems impossible.

Harkless must be really showing something in practice if he starts over Okpala.

PG: Herro - Dragic - Bradley
SG: Butler - Nunn
SF: Robinson - Iguodala - Harkless
PF: Okpala - Olynyk - Leonard - Harkless
Ce: Adebayo - Achiuwa

KZ breakout game. Phucking sick.

Didn’t expect to see him stroking threes like this so soon. Could legit have a role to play this szn.

Strus has definitely locked up that second two way. He will be important if we do end up trading Duncan.

Watched game from corner of my eye at a Christmas party. Saw KZ have himself a game kudos to him. Strus looks like a sniper. Harkless looks hapless. Needs to be put back at the three spot. Spo should start KZ at the 4 and see what happens.

Looking forward to watching the replay at midnight. Strus makes the roster without a doubt.

Harkless has done nothing to deserve starting over anybody. If Spo wants to go uncoventional he starts out with KZ as the starting 4.

Achuiwa is also fully deserving of backup PF and Center minutes. Great pairing with Dragic and Iggy off the bench to guide him along.

Shoutout to those who had high expectations for KZ. I totally thought he was another Sean Lampley or Tang Hamilton.

KZ, Precious, a more mature Herro...LeBron, WE ARE COMING FOR YOU AND WE WILL GET YOUR BALLS ON A PLATTER AND FEED THEM TO RILEY’S DOGS

LOL i told you KZ had it in him...


After first game :

RexBoyWonder wrote:Honestly I thought KZ looked ok.

He looks big, long and mobile. He hit his 3 pointer.

He just looked passive, which is understandable since it's hit first game in like a year.

The tools are all there, he just needs reps and confidence.

Give him 30 minutes next game and tell him to play aggressive. Won't surprise me if he gets 20.

if achiwa becomes a rebounding beast that would be the best that the heat could hope for from this rookie,kudos to KZ as well.reminded me of jones junior role


How many 24 points games did DJJ had for us Eddie?

We have 3 snipers :o

I sense something special in Precious :nod:

Herro is going to be on another level this season :wink:
