Gotta see this test.

Also, Vassell at 4? That's something. There's no consensus in the mocks whatsoever this year.

And yeah, I really like Kira at 19. Let him torch the G League for a year and then win a spot in the rotation in year 2.

I really like Terry as a prospect but I always find it funny when scouts talk themselves into stuff like the Wonderlic, IQ tests, and other "psychological analysis" gimmicks.

If I were making these decisions, I can't imagine giving much if any weight to a test. What is the test measuring? What evidence supports its use?

Bolmaro is Ben Simmons'd to death so far today, they are going under every screen, even from the FT line so far and dare him to shoot.

Yeah, I have no idea, obviously with him, it's all about if he can develop as a shooter. He can certainly get more functional strength working with our staff.

I'm not sure he fits my 'give me the guy that gets us the most wins over the next 3-5 years' but if he can shoot, he seems like he would be such a fun addition to an already unselfish team.

Greek cable tv shows some of the games, and there's also the...internet.

@emmuney Zagars was....terrible. A lot of bad live ball turnovers, and he took some very bad shots (missed them).

I just had a second kid, so I get about 11 minutes a day to myself on the toilet to watch highlights on YT :D

I actually think based on position and context it can be a pretty important indicator when trying to project a prospect's shooting moving forward.

I think he'll be a fun player in time but I no longer believe he's a NBA prospect.

Still in on Yam though.
