*Mind blown*

Read on Twitter

Russ wants those assists!

Wiz made 19 of 36 3's. That'll work.

Ernie Brownfield left the Wizards a toxic wasteland.

First thread I started where the Wizards won this season. :)

Meanwhile, Russ must have read the Board, because he is having an absolutely amazing game!

Bamba's made 5 of 6 3's in his last 2 games. Looks like it's too late to steal him.


In the words of the late Dennis Green and only slightly paraphrasing he is who we thought he was. Mobile number is a very good player. Moe Bomba well that’s closer. He’s like a Porzingis who plays great defense.

It doesn't show the first few seconds of Rui on Ross, but stopping the ISO and dribble handoff is GOOD DEFENSE.

He is in theory, but not in practice. So far in his career, Bomba has been a wretched defender. He has terrible instincts. It's why he struggles to get on the court.

Really? His DRTG numbers have been very good, and DPBM's have been consistently better than Porz. Not to mention, he's a very good shot-blocker. He hasn't played much because he couldn't play with Vuc and he had lingering problems with Covid.

His DRPM is very middle-of-the-pack. But I don't really trust defensive stats all that much. The thing that I trust is that Steve Clifford, a man who knows a thing or two about defense, has consistently chosen to play journeyman Khem Birch over Mo Bamba.

Birch has proven to be a good backup - and he's good in that relatively small role. If that's all you're going by... I don't get it.

Kim Burch has had a lot of time in the league and in minor leagues to perfect his crab. K h e m Birch has had a lot of time to perfect his craft. I think I should just get new glasses and stop translating everything because it hurts me to proofread these errors

While I enjoy the errors :clown: (I do!!!) I am happy to contribute if you need help with that. The robots are helpful but speech recognition is still learning how best to adjust to what we need. I suck at typing, if I could narrate my stories I'd have 2 books published already (only up to chapter 8 on one).

Last night our bench scored 55 points at a TS% of .774. Combine that with the game Russ had -- he was flat out amazing! -- & it would have been hard to lose (not that we didn't look for a while like we were going to manage it anyway!).

Rui's shot wouldn't go in, but otherwise he played well. As did Deni, obviously.

I've used eyebuydirect.com & like them. Frames with bifocal lenses for as little as $35. But, you'll need a prescription -- I see that an eye exam is $79 at Walmart.
