And maybe the Bucks miss Malcolm Brogdon more than they are letting on...

I know they are both French, but Fournier and Poirier are not the same person :wink:

Very early in the season but Philly and Milwaukee just don't scare me at all. Bucks made a huge mistake letting Brogdon go. Huge.

Yup. It’s funny how bucks fans trying to down play the importance of brogdon. Giannis will definitely force a trade next season.

I agree. Same with Lillard. They should have signed a 3 year with opt out after 2. I don’t pity them. They would just get frustrated not winning.

Nuggets beat the Sixers with only 12 bench points and the Jazz beat the Bucks with only 12 bench points. If your starters are all producing, does bench production even matter, especially in the playoffs when they play even less minutes?

Both of those teams got 100% of their points from players that were on the court. Nobody plays all bench lineups these days. Bench production ain't ****.

When you read something like Dion Waiters overdosing on gummies and passing out on the plane, it makes it even harder to discern which is fake news or not. Never change, Dion.

Sixers just cannot create their own shot. This is going to hamstring them all year.

Agree. That Harris contract is one of the worst in the league. Brown is a better player at a cheaper price

Can someone help me understand something.. If you’re the Knicks, you know you are in a rebuild. You aren’t competing for the playoffs. What good does it do to your team and your future to have Marcus Morris out there playing 41 minutes, jacking up 22+ shots... and have dudes like Knox wasting away on the bench?

I mean, you have to play the kid and give him experience to get better. You have to see what you have in him. Let him struggle, and fail, and work through it. Allow him to find his game. Like, the young dudes are your future. Whether or not they develop into real players, or as trade bait.

When they signed him, they probably had hopes of some other trade, or they believed that the team will be competitive. :lol:

I have less a problem with them signing him, and more confusion around playing him more than the young lottery picks.

Teams that aren't as good as they were made out to be in the offesason

Blazers- They are lacking at everything but PG and SG.

Magic- Great defense, nobody can consistantly create offense.

Bucks - (Kind of) missing a true pg and outside shooting, if only they had a guy they could have kept from last year.

Kings- New coach, new big men, worse play.

Are you saying MM was willing to play with Kyrie again after the disaster of a season last year? He must have know something was going on... to walk back on the verbal promise to the Spurs.
