I would've given Burke the full MLE before I gave Rozier that **** dumbass contract

Lakers wanting to add Dwight is pretty dumb decision. He's probably going to get upset because the team doesn't run plays for him. They need a guy who will play whatever role needed. Dwight doesn't seem like that type.

Yeah, Booker's career will probably be similar to Kemba. He is not going to get much recognition until he joins a Championship team. Suns added Ayton who should help them become alright, but they are far off from competing.

That was an appropriately scathing conviction of this team’s incompetence. The author talks about making the Hornets a science experiment. Do radically odd things. Frankly the experiment needs to be nothing more than utilizing our youth and developing them as our primary team. Lose games, lots of them, while learning how to play. Test these guys to see what they can do while winning high lottery picks. Use expensive vets off the bench until they can be traded for picks or rot till their dreadful contracts are over. At the end of that journey, hopefully with some (shockingly) great added draft picks in our system, we might compete.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

I get what he’s saying, but I don’t agree with it. I like Devin Booker a lot. Loved watching him last season and look forward to this season. Having said that, if he really wanted to work on his game, wouldn’t working on passing out of double teams be a part of that since he did say he gets doubled all year.

This was against Argentina.

Rui about to blow up. Already a huge star in Japan. Too bad he didn’t fall to us. I think this was who Mitch wanted. He said the price was too high to move up. Rui is a huge Melo fan and said he modeled his game after him. You can really see it, especially with that jab step. Melo learned that from Kiki Vandeweghe his rookie year in Denver and Kiki learned it from Jerry West when he was at UCLA.

It hurts so much seeing the guy I really wanted us to go get (Rui) predictably kill it.

Bryant has been there all summer just like Siakam was last year. Looks like he is gonna make a similar jump. He’ll get lots of opportunity in Washington.
