He looks good. And he has to "feed" those bigs!
They have a bunch!

Always hoping the best for Ricky, he deserves...

I like the kid. He still has a chance to be a player. Everything possible went bad here. He sure looked good in college.

There are some clips of him dogging it in preseason. Gave me flashbacks to Darko.

Note: Not only do we play the Pelicans twice in the first week of the season, but the third of four meetings is also before Thanksgiving. Possibly major seeding implications here.

So from what I am hearing the following is true. 1, Kyrie will not be given an extension. 2, Kyrie has been made available for trade. 3, Kyrie has been benched indefinitely until he is vaccinated. 4, Regardless of the Nets ownership/management, Kyrie was already banned from all home games. Assuming he is going to be traded I think it likely he gets sent west. I don’t think we are in the running nor am I sure we would even want to be (screams Butler all over again,) but this does have implications for the western conference.

Zion appears to be following the Oliver Miller diet and he's going to eat himself out of the league. Fat guys and foot issues don't end well. To have all that talent but no will power to maintain your body is pretty sad.

Kyrie has always been a nut, I wouldn't want him on my team even on a minimum contract. He had problems everywhere he's been. First at Cleveland, then at Boston, and now in Brooklyn. He's a cancer.

I loved Big O's talent, but he had none of the physical gifts of Zion. If Zion can't stay healthy it would be a sports tragedy.

The Pels need to get involved ASAP. Personal chef, nutritionist, ect… The team needs him in shape and should spare no expense. Zion needs to get it together as well if he wants to make real money on his next deal.

Zion is worrisome with the injuries. The wolves really need to capitalize will be two big losses if we can't be them without Zion. Kyrie situation is really bad, the Nets seem snake bit when it comes to getting their super team going. If he gets traded that will be insane. Situations like this are why I felt Morey best strategy was to just wait it out a while. The NBA changes extremely fast, a month into the season and the landscape can be very different. It never unfolds how you think it will before the season starts. Someone will get hit with a disaster, someone a miracle.

I think Culver’s shot looks a little better. It was hitchy with an elongated follow through before. Hope he does well. Seemed like a good kid that completely lost confidence here.

His game reminds me a lot Bolmaro’s. Hopefully we have better luck with him.

The Pels, Clippers, Nuggets, and Warriors are dealing with key players being out. The Mavs are dealing with one of their maxes being underwhelming and wanting to move (referring to KP.) That isn’t even mentioning the rebuilding of Houston and OKC and the vulnerability of the Lakers due to their key players age and injury history. My point is the west might be talented but it’s also vulnerable. I think we have a solid chance of capitalizing on that vulnerability as long as we stay healthy.
