Thank goodness we are bringing in more D League "prospects." Maybe we can find a way to lose this game.

We're getting close to not having enough of a roster to have the game.

This is why tanking effectively this year was so important. This sucks.

Yup. Don't get why we didn't start the tank 3 weeks earlier :(

I would at least wait for 90% of the game to be over before I would be this sure . They could be having their breakout game today

Probably better for us if Sacramento and Toronto win. Cleveland winning would be good.

Fair enough about Sacramento. Not sure about the Raptors...had still some hope the Wizards could end up with a better record than us but looks unlikely now.

Sucks that Kenrich got injured..hope nothing serious.

Overall playing with those terrible line ups has been pretty good for Poku & Theo (bigger role for Theo as a PG and Poku can shoot & create some offense). Not sure I like it for Brown's development because he needs some decent/good players around him.

Sort of amazing how quickly Brown came back to earth. Once there was a scouting report out he's become mostly ineffective.

I had a 3 days NBA break and when I saw the box score this morning ... few questions happened in my mind:
when did J. Hoard arrive? Doumbouya played 23 minutes?! Hayes made more assists than Maledon?!!

This box score was quite unbelievable as a french fan ^^
Frank Ntilikina is a play-off player, but he plays for the Knicks.

Paris 2024 (Starters):
Malédon - Ntilikina - Strazel
Hayes - Ayayi
Fournier - Hoard
Doumbouya- Wembanyma - Tillie
Gobert - Sarr

You probably know more about Hoard than us. He was on the g league team and signed to a deal yesterday. I don’t imagine he’s a long term piece.

Theo didn’t have a great game. He had a career high two games ago against Phoenix and has played like a rookie the last two. Theo makes good passes but hasn’t put up a lot of monster assist games. I think the potential is there but lots of turnovers right now.

I don't know so much about him. Few years ago, with his very U17 world championships, I was high on him, look at my signature, you'll uderstand how much I expected from him! But since 2017 I didn't really following him, except Tillie, our guys who chose NCAA are not our best prospects.
I think he has pontential, but he has bad choices because NBA was everything for him. Instead of being pro in France or elsewhere in Europe, at 17 he choose to go to a US high school to catch some hype for NBA draft later.But he was not so great with Wake Forest and so wasn't drafted. I hope this contract will launch his career and that he could be a good surprise next year for any NBA team.

About Theo, he always played for the win until now. Since play-in is too far, his motivation can't be to win I guess...
Frank Ntilikina is a play-off player, but he plays for the Knicks.
