I dunno.

His teeth are kind of yellow.. Or it was just the lighting in the arena.

Either Ways, not the hardest thing to fix. :lol:

Donic does sort of have an annoying face. Which will be fine when he's a Knick. I hope we can get Grayson Allen on the bench too, to piss off fanbases for the next 10 years.

And yeah, KP at center should not happen, at least for now. Rebounding would look ugly af against NBA rebounders.

Even KP after the game, gave himself kind of excuse saying he is a PF playing at Center, so grabbing rebounds is a problem for their team. :lol:

...damn I don't want to get too excited about doncic because the Knicks probably wouldn't get him but I don't think I'd be upset if the front office made some business decisions to fall to get him.

I dont get this bitching about his rebouding..That was teams problem.Look how they switch players..Other team plays pick n rolls all day,and somehow KP guards 2-3 position players like 75% of time.He cant run from 3pt line to the basket and grab them..Yeah he lost few of them..If KP plays 4,then hes lethal at D,because no1 will go under the basket to score.Hes forced to play like that.

What do you want to argue here? Iām not bitching. I just know that some people are excited about KP at 5, Melo at 4.

And I'ma just saying that after watching KP play C at Eurobasket, that its a bad idea. At PF he is decent. At C I doubt he would be even average against NBA bigs. You add Melo at PF (I know Melo is/was a good rebounder for a SF), and it would be ugly.

And clearly KP still sees himself as PF. Thats why he added the last comment. (I'am PF, playing as center)

Just run KP+Willy and try to work it out.

I didnt tell that you are bitching..People just keep looking at numbers and thats all.Just open Knicks twitter,and read about it..THey havent seen a single game,and keeps bitching about things.KP can play good at C.Problems make others on the floor.I think every1 knows that hes a PF...Main problem was personal fouls against him.Does are two dif players when u are with one pf,or with 3 in 1 quarter,where they destroy him mentaly
National team and Knicks actually where wery similar in terms of defence..SO many mystical player switching and shiet..Felt like Rambis was coaching their D :D

First half the refereeing was totally in favor of Slovenia. No wonder there were no replays after 3 of 4 very questionable calls on the latvian players although there were always replays on other fouls. Then they slowly balanced the game. Still really bad officiating overall. In the end KP didn't get whistled for a 100% 5th foul on a 3pt attempt though but then again Randolph should have gotten a flagrant foul.

Slovenians played quite dirty, especially Randolph. So you shouldn't be mad but rather thankful.

Officiating was plain bad, not in favour of anyone. And anyone that supports a team with Janis Timma on it doesn't get to accuse others of dirty play.

Let us just give credit to Slovenia. They have played a terrific tournament and have two very talented and strong players in Doncic and Dragic. I was hoping for KP to pull it out but realistically I knew Slovenia had the edge. Overall it was a great tournament for Latvia nonetheless--they played their hearts out, KP played terrific and they made it to the quarter finals. Good luck to Slovenia, I actually think they have a decent chance against spain. Spain does not look invincible.

I know. He played 2-3 games only and didn't play a huge role. Plus, he at least played for a Latvian club.

And I wasn't a fan of that anyway.


Yeah, I'am kind of trolling. 8-)

Didn't he had a Latvian girlfriend or even wife? And I think he even knew a language a little.

And of course he was nobody even compered to Randolph, in worlds basketball scene. :lol:

I think Anthony playing for Lithuania has a lot to do with Doncic with whom he shares team. They are very close friends at Real Madrid (have seen them couple of times going out for lunch close to RM stadium)

The whole tournament was officiated awfully. They let really rough stuff go underneath and then call tricky talk fouls. Hard to find a rhythm or pace.

Good first half for Greece. Had problems finishing play at the end of the 2nd half though. Also got to hope Russia continues missing 3s. Greece has defended really well so far, so that's been part of it.
