Actually.


Rubio will definitely help them stay in the system and run the plays. And defensively he will have to carry a little extra as Booker doesn't play defense.

OK.
I'll speak out my mind plainly (no ironies or odd jokes).

PLEASE NO
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TheGoldenBoy: He just bandwagoned me to Utah.
NoIdeal Favors: Zion should be on his knees thanking Tolliver, eyes in tears. He was a luxury for Jazz.

IT WAS REALLY THAT NECESSARY?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Jae RedLiner: Liked him since Boston times. He'll be missed.
Raúlzinho Neto: Another guy I like from long ago.
Graymond Allen: He needs to get better at defense. What I saw in a rookie year looked hopeful enough to keep him.

I GET IT
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Splash Grandpa: I utterly respect this guy. I was fine wether he stayed or not
Epke Udoh: Same.
Thabo: Yet unclear. If he doesn't stay, same.
Rounds: I honestly couldn't care less.


Jazz took the risk to rebuild the whole rotation in just some hours funneled into Mike Conley out of some chance to make WCF.
Totally legit. He's a great player and the rest of new guys are fine enough though none is a personal favorite of mine.

I politely disagree.

Ol' Man is a far better defender and game generator.

The trollest thing I saw during an off-season:

If any, they manage to summon you into the thread.

Gratitude.

España 80/USA 91 (exhibition game)

Spida displayed a regularly fine game. He looked good enough and made the Game Highight :

One assist low to get first triple-double in the whole tournament's history.
Ol'Man is being one of the best players at FIBA WorldCup.
Read on Twitter

For some unknown reasons (maybe they think he's cuter) Bogut is the most popular player in the whole China tho.

And The Golden Boy, arguably the 2nd one.


I love 中国.

We're entitled to critizise his game as much as we can, 'course.
That's what we fans do best (I've done plenty of that, f.i.).

But any denial of him doing his best to help the team (often by go-to-guyish ways) is delusional.
I feel myself pretty proud of what he's doing. He doesn't look as a sophomore anymore.

This is FIBA basketball under FIBA rules against FIBA teams.
Not such an itsy bitsy deal as many people apparently think.

I don't know, I think a lot of us experienced enough spam attacks to get worried when we see something like this. For those who wonder what the Chinese part says, here it what you get when you use Google Translate:

"The nomads of the black giant sun, the phoenix under the sun, brothers, we can't double in the open gym! I understand the whole season!"

To be honest... you nailed me.

This was one the first tips of the joke: People alarmed and thinking
Are they spamming cheap non-official T-Shirts or stuff!!??

Googleing Is Unfair & GoogleTransl Is Dark And Full Of Terrors but your translation was pretty accurate nonetheless.

Apparently, there's no proper ideogram for Troll.
It makes sense provided it's a word from ancient scandinavian legends that never arrived to China.
At first, I tried Demon but I eventually found the pictogram for Giant that fits like better.

What it surprises me is the I understand the whole season! thing...
I know Google Translator doesn't like "bad words" like shi.t and it automatically tries euphemisms.

Supposedly, it should read:

I understand lots of jokes could be made about USA National Team performance.

But I'm not in the mood for that.

They did the best they could.
Didn't suffice. That's it.

More than a National Team frailty I'd put the focus on opponents' merits.
All of the semi-finalists get some NBA high-level players at the roster (or former ones, as Scola in Argentina) and most of them got years working with same core and that's a distinctive advantage in automatisms, chemistry built, definition of roles and synergies....

From Utrolls' point of view, we all know Stumps and Ol'Man good enough to know that they will not tease Spida too harshly for this but they will try to help him to deal the frustration instead.

Donovan was best USA man at court.
Plain and simple.

Let's be positive: what he learned about basketball in this barely two months is an unvaluable experience.


I expect a notably better Spida next NBA season.

Phoenix is a mess, I'm not sure what to expect.

What does this mean? They were a mess, don't you think they fixed this with the moves they've made this past year?

They are still a mess a ownership level, that won't change until Sarver sells the team. Ricky's most important task will be changing the culture. That's been the biggest issue with them over the years. Ricky has terrific character...but I'm not sure it's in his hands. The Suns have brought in strong vets before and nothing has changed. Ricky did his thing in MIN, but that never amounted to much success either.

It just depends on what you're counting as success. If winning 35 games is a big deal for them...I think that's something they can do. But given their history, they might just take a little bit longer to start tanking like they have for awhile. Once they're out, the only thing that seems to be on their minds are putting up stats in garbage time and starting fake fights.
