It’s not physically possible for Achuiwa to be like Dedmon unless he grows 4 more inches, gains 20 pounds, and has his arms stretched out. Achuiwa is a PF not a damn center.

Maybe he gain 3 inches to his height and put on 20 pounds while he's at it.


Precious at this point should be modeling his game around Udonis Haslem.

We are both on the same page tonight Don Carnageta

Tyler needs to abstain from sex with Katya till the offseason. He should just knock her up if she’s not already.

Two STRONG kick azz second halves in a row!! How TF did Okpala get 18 minutes. smh Nice to see Herro with a good game. Love it when the Heat control the boards. Biggest game of the year in Atlanta Friday. You're on a roll OP!! GG!

Desperation because of no Iguodala and Spo thinking Achuiwa can never play PF ever.

I didn't necessarily mean he should model his game after him nor can be just like him. He's smaller. Perhaps I just didn't word it right. I meant learning how to play in the front court from his experience as a vet and finding ways to contribute on the floor.

Carta is right. He should be learning to play the front court like UD and relying on a mid range jumper. Maybe next year. If he gets traded to another team and they play him at PF i guarantee he flourishes.

Yes, but I didn't mean he literally should be modeling himself after Dedmon. I meant more of a rookie-vet thing. Anyways, he definitely needs some summer league and G league time. He unfortunately didn't get it this year for obvious reasons. But he at least has some playing time under his belt. I see the talent and athleticism. He just needs to hone the skills, and build some more confidence. If he can get a consistent shot, this guy could be a quality player.

Dedmon a +17 in 15 mins. Instant impact when he comes in.

I will never understand the extreme small ball.

basketball is a game of possessions. if you can't grab defensive rebounds, you will lose 90% of the time

You beat what’s looking to be a Trae Young-less Hawks team on Friday night, and you’ll have the tie breakers over both the Knicks and Hawks. Big game.

only disappointment from this game was Bam dunking all over Petty Mills getting nullified.

that was sweet nonetheless. I would have lost it had we lost this game by 2 :x

This team would be scary if it had a better front court. I mean the guards would eventually get out of the slump. They are too good of shooters to be shooting that poorly for the rest of the season. The defense does its job on the perimeter mostly outside a few games that they get exposed on the switches. If they can just get the rebounds and clog the paint, they will be dangerous in the playoffs. It makes you wonder what the plan is in the offseason and if there's any big men they have their eyes on and if they are going to stick so strictly to small ball. If they could just find a PF who could shoot like a Kelly, but guard and screen way better, they would be golden. Hopefully that's what Precious develops into.

I want to see him dribbling the ball up and chucking shots up in summer league. Will be keeping close eye. This is a kid who said he wanted to model his game after K Leonard after he was drafted.
