Haliburton is apparently #1 in the NBA in offensive rating. That is absolutely absurd, how the hell is this dude a rookie.

Some of the success Holmes is having is being spoon fed by Haliburton too.

Getting closer to seeing Okongwu. With the Gallinari injury bug, he might get some some good minutes by the end of January. So long as the Hawks can stay around .500, I'd not mind resting Gallinari in a similar manner to other vets in the league. KP, PG13, Leonard etc...

Saddiq Bey should have been a top 5 pick. Takes the sting away from the Hayes pick.

The redraft for this class is probably two solid seasons away. Just like in 2017 when Collins did not play much. There are sure to be some risers and fallers in the next two to three seasons as players get more playing time.

For sure man.

Bey just looks like he’s been playing for 10 years. He’s built like a tank, plays great defense, and has a legit quick three point shot.

He will start in this league for a long time at the very least. He leaped over Sekou in the rotation already.

I liked him a lot as a sleeper. I actually thought he might sneak into the lottery. Like you said, he passes the eye test and his shot is already there.

LaMelo just has the confidence Lonzo lacks.

He's more gifted with his hands, will be elite at the rim when he adds strength because he has elite touch with both hands which is rare

Haliburton was paying 7:1 prior to this game to win Rookie of the Year. He's still paying 6:1 right now. Great bet imo.

I think 3 years from now people don't understand why Poku wasn't taken in the top 5... but all posters here claim they thought he should have at the time.

My side hustle is sports cards and I’ve been investing in Poku. I believe in him too

Haliburton will beat LaMelo, LaMelo is still pretty raw especially shooting

I mean its still not guaranteed which is why i was harsh on him prior to chi game bc he was taking like 5 shots per game.
My fear is Edwards stealing roy bc hes jacking up 20 shots per night and this award is mostly ppg.
If Hali takes less than 10 shots, no chance but everyone knows he is the best performer this season.
God told Derrick to rise, so Derrick Rose.
