But IT doesn't have to be a good player to be better than random third string PGs. He is at least good enough to justify a roster spot, if he were as good a person and as helpful a teammate as they say. I'm not necessarily proposing that there are character issues, it could just be he's not good enough to justify being handed the role he demands or thinks he could snag elsewhere. Or something. But IMO there's a reason he hasn't stuck anywhere, and it isn't all about his game.

The problem is that IT is a terrible offensive player now and also the worst defensive player in the NBA. That's a bad combination with zero upside.

...Regarding IT.

All I know of his intelligence is what I can gather from interviews I've heard him give. He did not strike me as stupid in those. He seemed likeable and relatable in them, to me. To each his own, though.

He's said a lot of stupid things, e.g. around the tribute ceremony. I never attribute them to personality or character flaws; rather, I attribute them to lack of brains. ;)

Kyrie is so **** up - but he is so so so good!

Kyrie was in hardcore bitch and whine mode gets benched down 21 nets go on a monster run without his cancerous attitude out there. Now it’s close late with his ass riding the pine with the sixers being awarded fts every possession what’s new lol.

Bulls got served by the Magic, Theis looked like the only one who gave a damn for them besides Lavine and Vuc early

Bad body language by Jokic to start Heat game. Grant Williams and the Celtics broke the MVP candidate. Can't convince me otherwise.

Warriors have 125 pts in 3 quarters. Not sure if I'm seeing correctly. 42 for Curry. They lead by a gazillion pts.

Luka lol.


So I am watching this game as well. I see Luka miss a FT with 2 seconds left, game over right. They foul Grayson Allen who is having a career game. G Allen shoots 90% from the FT line. make 1-2 its a 3 point game, 2-2 4 point game. He misses them both. rebound, 1.8 time left. Everyone in the world should know Luka is going to get the last shot, he does, almost trips and makes it.

NBA for you..

Am happy to see G Allen Choke the game away.. :D

Never liked Theis as starter, especially when Stevens held back RW for him. But also said Theis would probably be the best backup center in the league. Theis comes off the bench and looks comfortable against the 2md unit guys behind Vuc.. Shocker.. :-?

happy for Theis

Desmond Bane on pace to break the all-time rookie record for 3 point pct.. too bad Stevens admitted it's too hard to put 2 rookies on the floor together, so let's trade the pick Danny and develop "our guys" who of-course they like :o :-? :x

Normally I would never put a non defender as a #1 player in the NBA, but what exactly does Curry have to do to be rated top player in the game today. Curry > Lebron-Giannis-KD-Harden in impacting the game. Obviously GS is a mess so no one can blame him for not winning as much. Not talking MVP, just talking best player.
