It’s doesn’t feel like we’ve done much well but the game is close. Diallo is something else.

It's starting to feel like we have 3 legitimate starters locked in. If we get a legitimate number 1 scoring wing in the draft this year we may just be trying to add peripheral pieces....

Shai’s poor shooting has probably been my biggest disappointment so far this season. He’s a good free throw shooter. I’m really surprised he can’t hit 35%. He gets plenty of good looks.

Starting to wonder if Adam's reluctance to guard bigs on the perimeter was an Adams problem or a conscious coaching decision.

Heh, just checked Poku's season stats. Small sample size obviously, but he's shooting 10% from the field and 7% from 3. Negative 2.6 PER. Heh, Christ.

Shai needs to step up

And he immediately creates 8 points

Yet diallo still feels like the most hopeless player on the team.

I know it was always supposed to be ugly this season, but I have no hope for poku. Such a waste of two picks

Mmhmm. He shouldn't be in the NBA right now. Put him in the G-league and have him work on his body, doing agility drills, and learning how to play a team game. I can't imagine what it would look like if he became a good player. He's so freakin' awkward. His body control is like when you're playing a video game and your controller's battery is dying.

I’ll try this again. He moves like a car dealership balloon man.

We need to move hill. Unfortunately some teams are just horrible and if we get them any chance to out-tank us, they’ll do it. This is a disappointing win. At least some young guys played well.

I'm really not worried about this. All terrible teams are in the East...not that hard to end up with of the 2-3 worst record in the NBA. More disappointed about Houston winning without Harden...

Still want to trade Hill obviosuly. I know most people won't agree but I still think he's worth a late FRP (good contract and still very good player that can fit easily in any system). I just don't see many teams willing to trade for him though (would be a great fit in LAC but they don't have assets, so maybe the Nets).

I really love Bazley. He improved so much with his dribble. He just need to make those 3's (really struggling so far this season but his mechanic doesn't look that bad)
