That's a bold statement on the Nets...as for the Raptors, DMC was absolutely **** last year. They weren't going to get much for him without him playing in games beforehand.


DMC was bad because he didn't fit in. The guy looked great in Atlanta's offense because Bud had them swinging that ball around. Carroll would get open looks off of cuts to the hoop and spotting up on kick outs. However, the Raptors were absolute trash for ball movement so Casey would have him sit in the corner and wait for Lowry or Derozan pass him the ball.

That trade is going to look very bad for the Raptors when they discover that Miles sucks.


Very true, but having him as a 3D would have worked if his body wasn’t broken last year. :lol: Healthy DMC is good, broken is bad.

PHI played Saric at C against Moz. He hits a couple of open 3's. Moz off the floor.

What is so hard about this basic concept for our franchise? KP can not only drain 3's, but he can attack closouts well with a midrange pull up or can take it to the rack.

Such a huge mismatch in our favor & we need to take advantage of it this year.

If KP doesn't want to play the 5 you'll have to leave it alone for now.

Kyrie looks like he has embraced his role as a distributing PG for the Celts.

Joel is unstoppable. I just want him to stay healthy please. Feel bad for son. KP should be able to do something similar to a team like the nets that goes small.

That's what's killing me about watching Embiid. KP should be doing something close to what Embiid is doing and he's not...It hurts watching Embiid as a Knicks fan

It will be best for his development IMO. That's where he belongs. Start now.

Also, we are so terrible up & down this roster that I doubt it even makes a big enough difference.

KP did it against them in the first game actually.

Then you convince him. Amare didn't want to play C under Mike D at first either.
