It is nice that we can stem the tide with NBA players instead of Deandre Ligggins and Rashad Vaughn types, much as some people like to mock caring about roster spots. Great opportunity for the wings.

So you don't think Thanasis gets minutes?


I would certainly hope not. He's like our 14th best player. Maybe.


He’s our 16th best player.

Wonder if sterling or DDV gets the start. I feel like Sterling, but could see bud doing something like starting Korver tbh

Ok. Hence the "maybe". I'll definitely buy 16th.

Rudy Gobert said he literally know the play before we ran it. That's on coaches.

I'm not surprised considering Utah beat us with a virtually identical play.

It would be Sterling or Pat. Donte is way too small. Or he may even start Ersan and move Giannis to SF. Who knows.

Looking forward to Mid for 50 games a year during the rest of his contract.

Yeah wasn’t trying to correct you, just my way of saying I believe Bender & Mason III are/will be better NBA players. Thanasis is definitely a fun garbage minutes guy though.

Donte needs to prove he’s a starting caliber player and not a career 8th man.

I am very happy he is out. He's really just kind of the worst.

Maybe we can trade him for Derozan? The spurs aren't going anywhere

Must see the positive here. Maybe Khris will get bored, wander around the facility and find the weight room. It's possible.

Hoping they're giving him time to find his touch so he can have one of his 57% 3PT months before he coasts the rest of the season.

Hoping Sterling gets the start and begins to assert himself.

MiltownHawkeye wrote:Like PP said, not $175m worth, but we'll miss Middleton. He pisses us all off pretty frequently with his inconsistency and lackadaisical approach, but we also tend to take his skillset for granted. There's a reason he's remained such an impactful player over the years in terms of on/off-type stats even during his brutal stretches. There's no one else on this team you really have to respect as a half-court or mismatch threat while also being able to space the floor.

I wanted Sterling to start getting more minutes but not like this.


Agree.

This is basically a torn quad. If that makes more sense to people than 'thigh contusion'.

So yeah the timeframe is right.

Your characterization sounds a lot worse. Especially for a guy who had his quad torn already.

Not having much length at the 3 spot is a concern.....Middleton is going to be the gift that keeps on giving.

He's averaging something shy of 20. We can find that but the problem is, khris is the only one that can shoot those contested mid jumpers against stubborn defences. The upcoming schedule dare i say is looking easy but we've played mostly close games thus far, so who knows. I think defensively we could see an improvement.

Very Jason Kiddesque play calling and in game management

Or Mike McCarthy.

Run, run, pass.
