Cole A. is the usual aggressor on the floor, I like it.

I am also happy with what I've seen so far from Wagner. I like how he moves, he has a quick first step for a big forward. He has various offensive moves in his arsenal, definitely potential there. I hope he shows enough until the season is over so that WeHam can decide whether to keep him for training camp or beyond. He would be a nice cheap signing of yet another promising young player.

True but what was he doing with it? He caught the ball, as a big you should gather it with 2 hand and go strong not barely catching it but I think he was trying to do a turn-around dribble?

Tillman is still a rookie? Dude looks like and built like a 10 year vet.

I know I always pile on him but RJ is just so underwhelming. Can someone remind me what the protection was on the Denver pick? I feel like we gave AG away for nothing.

I must say Bamba is playing good so far after Wendell was poked in the eye. I might suggest he is showing some sense of urgency in his game. He is focused on offense so far and effective. Let's see now how long it lasts.

He's just raw. The physical tools are above average and he can handle the ball well enough. He just needs time to see what he is going to become. His passing has been a mixed bag tonight. He is finding passes, but his accuracy has been abysmal. I'm just not worried. He is exactly the type of player we want in our lineup right now.

Bamba playing well tonight. He's looking so much healthier.

I think it's dumb that you get just one challenge. You should get to challenge until you get one wrong. We will probably win this one, but what do we gain from it? It just irks me when officials miss obvious calls. You could hear the smack of the ball and the ball went straight down.

People say this more often than not in game threads… he has been playing well all year. Does he have bad games? Yes, like everyone else.

Cole World looking better each game. He is starting to figure out how to finish around the rim against NBA defenses.

I guess but I prefer my ‘physical tool’ guys to play positions that require less skill (bigs). His handle is okay but he’s a straight-line driver with no crossover or shake to that handle.

Anyway, I'm still not sure what the protection is on the 2025 Denver pick.

Edit: it may be top 5 protected in 2025, 2026, and 2027
