That's fine, but you are using it as part of an argument as to why Birch deserves more minutes than Bamba. I would say Birch is pretty elite at setting screens, at least by the metric of screen assists. The problem with the argument is, that by that same measure, Bamba is also elite, or at least very close to equal Birch.

Bamba screen ain't so good....

Yah, and Bamba probably won't see the court again because of that one play, and his 21.8 screen assist points per 36 will be ignored, in context, Goebert 21.1, and Birch also with a sparkling 19.5, Vuc at 10.6.

And if Ross made shot, he would still be counted as "screen assists" despite doing nothing.

I saw enough games, and in Bucks game also, where he pretty much disconnects himself from offense and goes to corner and does nothing for rest of possession. He is center, he flat out does not understand what his role is, and that's why he is not playing.



Look at this play, he tells pg that goes at 3 point line so he can screen, instad of setting screen, he flat out moves away from Forbes that makes recover, and he rolls to rim, with no chance at getting ball and is being boxed out as soon as he touches Giannis.

Plays like this just show how little understanding of basketball he has.

Thing is, we ran plays where the centre sets a screen for a Ross jump shot extremely often with the second unit, and Ross is really good at making these shots even if the screen is mediocre. So any centre we play in the second unit with Ross is likely to get a lot of screen assists without necessary being a good screener.

We have 5 other guys out besides Fournier. We would have a very good team if we had that 5 back and replaced Fournier's 17m salary with a role player.

It's actually kind of funny that someone thinks that Fournier out is why we're losing. Add Fournier and no one else to this team and we're still going to lose.

Looks like Brown is probable. Just will be without Tatum. A big just, though.

Bamba is more at risk of catching Covid than he is of catching a break.

Guess Bamba will set a better screen next time so we will take him on the trip.

What does that mean? That he may have been exposed to Covid again? Bamba is like a human meme.

Durant had to do the same thing earlier a week or two ago. Got Covid last year and then had to sit out a game or 2 because of contract tracing.

The NBA protocols do not differentiate for players that have already had COVID. Durant & Bam had it the spring, and had to sit out a week recently because of contact tracing.

In fact, and I can't remember who it was, but a player that had it before the bubble, has tested positive again recently. as in a second time.
