Borrego probably tells MKG the same thing, but he will take 3 dribbles to the left for a 19 footer.

Miles Bridges needs to be our most improved player this year

He needs to be fed starter minutes, featured often, and allowed to play through mistakes

This team only going to get better via organic growth of young players

This year that improvement needs to be measured in Miles

Graham will carve out a career as a respectable backup.

I got the reference and chuckled! Just felt like mentioning that he's not a bad player but won't be great.

1) we should hope Bridges becomes so good that that is a concern.
2) if it is a concern, it will definitely happen.

In a few years I hope Miles will prove that he belongs in that group. Not as in playing for the Lakers, but as an NBA all-star.

Nice open runs with Miles. Also featuring Ben Simmons actually shooting 3’s, Darius Garland looks amazing. Bacon, Rodney Hood, and many more NBA players. Miles is gonna be really good this year.

Miles looks solid. I just wonder if he's going to play so passively again. I remember many times last season where I thought he should have drove to the basket and he'd just pass out instead.

I'd expect Miles to play differently with no clear-cut, "give me the ball" player on the roster (who at least deserves that title).

An offensively aggressive Miles has all star potential.

Just not sure if he has that aggression. I'm hoping he shows it this year

I think that's fair.

I think its also fair to say that the lack of high end handle is what holds him back from being more aggressive offensively.

Agree, he's kinda capped at like GSW Harrison Barnes level offensively till that improves
