That is NOT just a decent game.

--Mags :beer:


He was playing against POLAND and shot 9 for 20.


That's great you're up to date on your geography. He dominated against weaker competition. LIKE HE SHOULD! Like WINNERS do.

You're just nitpicking for the sake of it. 9-20 is still a good % (45%) with an ARRAY of moves.

--Mags :beer:


I watched whole game and he also gave some kickouts and nice passes to wide open teammates when KP was doubled, but basically everyone was shooting poorly.:lol: With him Latvia looked way better than Poland and without him... it was shaky. He looked like he embraced the leadership role and most importantly was THE reason Latvia won and really it was KP who closed out the game after 65-65, he had like 9 straight points and a block in last 2 mins of a tied game.

That's a stat line that Kawhi would put up.

But, you know..."9-20" :lol:

lol

Our captain (Blums) was asked were there any specific sets they were running today.

He responded:"We got our full squad together just for a couple of days now, so we didn't establish any connections yet. But that's okay, I've talked to our NBA guys, Davis said they are practicing some sets in between games in San Antonio, but Kristaps said, Knicks aren't. They are mostly just running 1on1`s". :nonono:

No idea, but a Latvian channel probably isn't going to stream a preparation match between Slovenia and Croatia.

well, that was obvious. jeff isoed everyone. his idea of getting kp the ball was to put him in the pinch post just like melo. let's hope without phil that he has some other ideas. i wouldn't bet on it though.

This season is when the truth comes out. I hope we see it soon enough to catch a guy like Blatt if Jeff is not the coach we want.

Spoiler:
At least we have Rambis waiting to run the team if Jeff gets fired.

Wow, I hope I'm not drooling and making a fool of myself. Is he playing and defense? If not, does he look smart enough to learn?
