Jrue with some pretty shaky handles. I don't remember him being as bad last year, hopefully just rust

As a Lakers aside, since we've discussed it recently in the ATL thread, looking like the Lakers may have "chosen" correctly with THT. He looks pretty impressive, though not that they needed to choose...

None of NworA, Semi, and Hood are deserving of minutes on a good team. Please package with DDV for an actual plyer.

When Giannis goes beast mode, there isn't anything anyone can do to stop him. He's completely unstoppable and it is amazing to watch.

Between his inability to catch a pass, his horrible shooting from 3, and his boneheaded drives and lack of rebounding...I don't need to see him play another minute.

We still the Champs and we still have the best player in the world. Life ain't so bad.

Nwora has shown infrequent flashes of being an NBA player, so as long as you're ok with the collective hand-wringing if he's another Wood :lol:

I'm on board with this, though I'd keep DDV if I could.

that's **** ing hilarious. Davis is nowhere near Giannis's level athletically, or mentally, and tonight showed it. The one thing he might have is a more consistent mid range for the moment, but not for long.

Watching THT tonight is what I was hoping Nwora's scoring level would be at, but he's not even close at the moment.

I'm starting to think you just watch games to listen for how the crowd noise is :lol:

It's so bad it's distracting.

I could complain about Semi. Or the refs. Or Novak. Or Nwora. But others got that covered. :D

For real tho, I wonder what goes thru the players' heads when the buzzer sounds after beating LA and the crowd is just dead silent. LOL.

I can't see how Davis is a perennial DPOY candidate

especially when teams try to guard him straight up. There's no one that can stop giannis one on one. easy 40 every time.

I think THT is pretty damn good ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

First home win since ring night.

Hill made a big difference. Not that special as an individual, but he made the team better when he was on the floor.

Middleton obviously on a minutes restriction. Only played 30.

Bucks probably lose without Middleton and his solid game after a slow start.

Antetokounmpo attacked the Lakers soft interior defense early and late.

Ojeleye doesn't see the court in a playoff game. But he can be helpful during the regular season if the Bucks continue to struggle with injuries. He is Thanasis-like, but with a mediocre 3 point shot. Not a rotation player, but needs to get some regular minutes to assimilate. Let's root that he is less spasmodic and less cringeworthy as the season progresses. Yes, a bitter pill. If he stays like this there is always Thanasis.
