Right now guy is playing out of his mind. Much like Bamba, without exstension signed. I always thought he is Gordon-like. But he might have another gear in him.


I think he's really benefitting from playing with LaMelo. I like what they've done with their team the last couple seasons.


He does, there are also Plumlee who always has been low-key good passer, Hayward ... and once Rozier comes back he will have even more space to attack rim. Guy is 6'6-225, but when you look him on the floor he looks like 6'9- 250 :lol: Guy is huge.
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.

Also, I might have to apologize to Ben.. Giddey has been amazing so far. I dunno if its because ofbthe gravity of SGA that he can do those but so far so good.

Not saying I would prefer him over Franz though... at least not this early lol

Vuc and the Bulls had a furious 12-0 run to end the game but NY hanged on as Derozan missed at the buzzer. Really freaking miss two teams going after it in crunch time, felt like a playoff game in Oct. It's been a decade since the Magic have played an intense game like that. Sighhhhhh.

The kid has game! He’d have been great here alongside Suggs instead of Cole. Maybe even with Cole. I imagine he’d have partnered well with Franz, too.

Jalen Green has one of worst tunnel visions i've seen since Anthony Walker and Monta Ellise were walking across nba courts.
My eyes were bleeding during Jazz game. And looking at game log, it's pretty much confirmation of the same. He will take his 15-20 shots regardless is he 0-15 or 14-15 from field. Flow of offense doesn't exist in his dictionary.

Reminded me why i liked Evan Mobley more than him

Well in a grand total of 5-6 games in, he does look good. Who knows what will happen 10-20 games in. Could be better or worse. However, I don't think he will be as effective here as in OKC. Let's be honest, have you seen what SGA is doing? The gravity of that dude? We don't have someone like that here yet.

Yeah, this version of Franz NOT the one in SL and pre-season, he would mesh well. Although I would be concerned what would happen when he play with Franz Okeke and JI. That would be a big/long lineup with unfortunately not one with a scorer's threat/mindset.

Agree.. but the thing is, I think their coach is looking for a big SF that he can play PF. Although TRoss can play SF, and he probably is as tall as PWill (LOL) at 6'7, no way can he do that at the PF spot.

The Bulls , looking at our wings would probably look at Okeke or Wagner only.

I feel very happy that Vuc is finally on a winning veteran team after going thru soon much suffering here. Yet stayed loyal and respectful thru out his tenure here.

Random thought while watching some games. I hate that JJJr. contract. He still fouls like he is the reincarnation of Danny Fortson. Still can't rebound. Still can't defend on the level people thought he would. Just shoots 3's all game long. + the Isaac like injury problems. Really liked him as a prospect. :nonono:

Richaun Holmes, a player I have never heard of, is dominating this season. His early season stat line is a major reason the Kings surprise.

Holmes seems like he has been in the league forever, I remember his days in Philadelphia. Happy he finally breaking through but wonder how long it last.

Holmes has been solidly good for at least three seasons.
