did he attempt a dumb carmelo quick shot release 3 pointer, where there is no follow through?


I'm pretty sure he didn't follow through. True Welo style.

at least we know there will be a piece of Carmelo that will remain as long as Kristaps is on the roster.

Now when some time has passed..

I'am getting more frustrated. First I thought it was a deserved loss ( still is :lol: ), but when you think about it, KP hits his terrible three, Doncic misses his chuck in the last seconds.. And its a 3 point turnaround. Also those two threes that were disallowed where we hit those like 0.5 second too late..

But yeah, KP also should've gotten his 5th foul a lot earlier on Luka's three point shot..

i guess we should expect a kristaps sighting in one of chris brickley's videos soon, unless he's going to stay in europe until training camp begins.

I hate FIBA with a passion. Because of that feud they have, teams have to deal with these garbage refs. How do you not notice someone elbowing the ballhandler in the face couple of feet away from you?

i don't think Dolan would've ever allowed Kristaps to play in another international game if Randolph dislocated his elbow/shoulder

I liked KP was getting to the paint to try to establish post position. I think KP is looking better from the post for sure.

Now next time I will see KP in Latvian uniform will maybe be in 2021 Eurobasket, because I don't think Latvia has a shot to make in the WC, with like 6 or 7 players from this team out who are playing in NBA/Euroleague because of the feud between organizations. :noway: :noway:

This affects a lot of smaller countries, even Lithuania have been complaining about it.

Ugh, don't get me started on that. We'll be watching Czechs and Hungarians in the next WC with this scheduling.

I wish all of the bad things for that f**king clown Randolph!

P.S. Dončič played great but that bank shot was super lucky and was the deciding moment. And that's unfortunate for such a game. It should have ended better, without such lucky bank shot.
