The tank will likely happen naturally. But AG and Evan will be coming back soon though. Liked what I saw from Bamba in the 4th. Not a huge fan, but with how the injuries have piled up, we should force him into the lineup and live with the results.

Counting Isaac, we were without 4 starters, Vooch in there by his lonesome.

It is what it is.

I couldn't get myself to watch this game, even before it started it felt like a blowout. Hopefully it gets better but at this rate I doubt it

Clark, Ennis, and Aminu are not rotation players on good teams. The concerning part is that there is no doubt that Weltman brought 2 of those in to be rotation players.

I mean judging spot up specialist when there is no one who can get in the paint and get them spot ups is weird.

Clark is not a rotation player, the other two are, but they have too big a role with us.

Why have them though? Clark can’t shoot. I don’t care what he can do in practice. On the court, I trust Bamba to shoot better than Clark.

We do? Who is penetrating in the paint and getting guys open looks on the roster atm? Even Fultz at his best was conditional at that considering how he was getting played by the defense. Anthony can't generate open spot ups for anyone.

I meant: why have the spot up shooters? I agree with the premise of your argument. We don’t have players that can create open shots so why have spot up shooters?

I’m also saying that these spot up shooters suck. They have had decent looks here and there and they can’t knock anything down. There’s a reason why we got them for dirt cheap.

But you know what? It doesn’t matter because I’m finally going to get to enjoy a proper tank... even if it wasn’t intentional.

Watching Bamba was the only fun thing about this game.

This is the first game I haven't watched in well over a decade. Gotta admit, after the product we've been forced to watch the past several years... it feels good.

:( I must say, after seeing Bamba tonight, if he was special, he would have separated himself out there against the dleaguers, considering he is already in his 3rd year. Conditioning or not, he honestly is still soft.


He had a nice post move against a mismatch. Baby steps regardless but... if i’d be shocked if he becomes someone close or even better than Vuc.
