I **** hate Serge Ibaka with a passion.
Aways gets in fights because he thinks he's tough. I hope somebody knocks him out soon. Johnson almost did there.

I dunno how the Lakers can tune out Lavar Ball. Meanwhile the Ball brothers are off to a um, humbling start.

Dennis Lindsey in the UTA FO has a son who played for Baylor last year. He was allowed to go to the pregame prep and all they talked about was Donovan Mitchell as they were playing Louisville. All the attention they were putting on him made him pay more attention to him.

Mitchell’s line:

17 pts 8 rebs 4 asts 1 stl
6-11 FG 2-5 3PT 3-4 FT

From there the love affair with Mitchell started.

Here's my take on Donovan Mitchell. He is insanely talented but the Jazz are WORSE with him.

Last season, the Jazz centered their team around Gobert, the taller cousin of Qbert, and finished 1st in the division, 20 games over .500, and the #5 seed.

This season, Mitchell was terrible at trying to get acclimated to a half court set where Gobert is both a force inside and on defense. Gobert has been injured, the Jazz actually aren't any better but WORSE and close to 10 games under .500.

What this tells me, the Knicks should be looking at the potential of adding Gobert (when he is a FA) who is a massive upgrade over Kanter.

They're not worse because of Mitchell, they're worse because they lost two key players in Gordon Hayward and George Hill plus Rudy hasn't been healthy all season so far. Also Ricky Rubio sucks and he's playing a lot of minutes for them. Rubio is a tank commander, you can't have this dude as your starter and not expect to be a lotto team, he's just awful.

Yeah, it's amazing the Jazz haven't bottomed out completely this year. They need to Gillooly Mitchell...

Stomp out Cleveland Monday, handle OKC relatively easy today. They are starting to look scary. If they can improve their outside shooting, they should easily be able to challenge and surpass SA for the third spot out West.
