I'm in Central TX so I have to pay a little attention to the Mavericks.
Holy crap, Doncic is soooo good passing out of a double-team.
I want that for our team.
He just does not seem to get rattled at all?

After watching Denver beat Portland and based on what I've seen last night from Luka, he may be a lot better defensively than what thought. On other hand, in all his greatness, he is far cry from Jokic when it comes to passing and getting others involved.

Also, even though both KP and Boban are of similar height, there can't be two more different players. Defensively, KP would be great switch-all center, but offensively I am not entirely sure where to peg him as he had no semblance of post game and settles for faceup jumpers and spotups. Altogether, it felt like I'm watching tall AG in Mavs uniform.

Yeah, KP os the definition of SOFT. AT least AG fights it out defensively. KP is a 100m 7'3 SG lol

I wonder if the Hawks would trade Cam Reddish now that they are winning. He is the definition of low risk, high reward type of guy. Cam needs a place where they will allow him to make mistakes and grow. Don't know if that could happen in ATL with their expectations.

Same idea I have. They have a lot of wings in Hunter , Bog , Huerter , Snell , Hill , Galo.. I think Cam can be available.

They have to start paying people. If they pay Collins I would swing in and see what we can do to steal Cam from them.

Not only that but the have to fin PT for all of them otherwise they can see discontent. However, which of those wings are "disposable" for them. I mean they might value Cam more than Hunter, Huerter, Bogdan, Gallo, etc. Who knows.

I think Cam might realize this as well. Bogdan had a great year and so did Hunter prior to the injury. There is no room for him unless the coach favors him.

Problem is.. what would ATL want from us AND how likely would it be they trade to a divisonal rival?

I think Atlanta would be ecstatic if someone offered them something of value for Reddish. If you want Reddish, wait until they decline to pick up his option and sign him. He sucked at Duke. He has sucked for two years in Atlanta. What I don't understand is why anyone around here wants him.

A lot like me thoughy the reason he didnt live up to his billing at Duke was he kept defering to Zion and RJ and was contented to just jack up the open 3 when he got passed to.

As to ATL I admit he sucked his rookie year but before he got injured a lot said that he improved so who knows really. He does have a fine stroke and he reportedly plays defense well. A 6'8 SF built.like him, can move like him and MAYBE live up to his shooting reputation is worth a chance at.

I don't think that ATL wants to pick up any salary. Maybe some second round picks might do the trick.

It's pretty much a low risk, high reward move similar to picking up Fultz. I don't see the harm in not picking him up. Unless the magic are giving up a first, which I can't imagine them doing, there is really nothing to lose.

Cam was never good.
Typical lottery pick based on nothing but wishful thinking and "upside" that he never showcased.

He looks like he should be good basketball player, but simply isn't, and never was.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

Is Leonard a robot?

He is the most clutch player of his generation and might be in the top-5 list.

Atlanta Hawks- 76ers.
76ers have some epic comback at the end, down by 3 with 22 sec to play and this dummy Doc Rivers still pushes them to do full court press that leads to clear path- dunk ?

What an apsolute disaster of decision.

Full court press was arguably the reason Sixers came back.

Makes lot of sense when you are down by 10
Makes no sense if you are single possession away from tie game.
