Anyone know how our boy Kulboka or whatever the hell his name is, is doing?

Kulboka had 6 points and 7 rebounds in 21 minutes in Bilbao's recent win vs Real Madrid.

Eh ill take it. As long as he continues to put on muscle. He will be a solid roleplayer for us in a year or two.

I hope he is on the roster next year as we will likely lose Marvin and he can play that bench forward/shooter role behind PJ.

Franks is a couple inches shorter. Definitely stronger though. Both are intriguing prospects

can we target harrell in FA? we'd have to overpay, but i think he'd fit great. he was also teammate w/ rozier at louisville. he'll be 26 in the summer. perfect.

I think the Clippers will do whatever it takes to retain him. As soon as they secure a contract with him, they might listen on Zubac. We need that rim protection as well.

Kemba just ran into his teammates chest head first and is being stretchered off the court

A favorite of mine in last spring's draft, Goga Bitadze is off to a nice start
Bitadze leads all rookies in blocked shots, and ranks 17th among all players in swats per game. He’s rejecting 8.9 percent of opponents’ 2-point attempts during his floor time, which would be the third-highest block percentage of any rookie in the past 10 seasons to play at least 150 minutes. Opponents are shooting a minuscule 39.6 percent at the rim when Bitadze is defending, an elite rate; with him on the court, Indiana’s allowing a microscopic 100.6 points per 100 non-garbage-time possessions, a league-best-caliber defensive efficiency mark.

For a 20-year-old to come in and instantly contribute to a top-10 defense is rare, and pretty special. When the rest of Bitadze’s game comes along, too—he’s taken only 11 3-pointers so far, but he’s got the touch to make them, and he’s shooting 76.5 percent from the foul line—the Pacers are going to have an awfully nice player on their hands …

Let me 1st preface this by saying: I absolutely HATE the +/- statistic and think it is often unfairly used to support someones praise for a specific player or heap on a specific player they do not like. That said.........


Kevin Knox had a -37 in only 23mins of playing time last night.

Yikes!!!

Yikes!!!

Further to this....

Every single player on the Milwaukee roster had a "+" rating (13 players!!) in that game.
While every single player on the New York roster had a "-" rating (12 players!!) in that game.

At least when they blew us out on Saturday night they had 1 player with a "-" rating and we had 1 player with a "+" rating.

Did you guys see the Miami box score from last night?

Butler: 20/18/10
Adebayo: 30/11/11
Robinson: 34/3/4
Nunn: 36/6/4

2 x triple doubles.
3 x 30+ point games.

Yikes!!

Which player would you rather have?


PLAYER A: 22.8/5.2/4.4/1.0 averages on 43.1/40.8/89.8 shooting in 32.1 minutes per night
PLAYER B: 20.0/7.6/3.7/0.7 averages on 41.5/42.9/80.9 shooting in 33.8 minutes per night

What if I told you Player A was 29 and Player B was 24?

What if I told you Player A was making $32.742 million this year and Player B making $1.417 million?

There was a lot of talk that we wouldn't be able to replace Kemba's production for a long time. I have to say, Devonte is doing his absolute best

How does Alvin Gentry still have a job? Even without Zion that team has way more Talent than we have.
