I remember seeing a picture of him being there. Thanks for the vid. Book was going hard at the end.

Controller on PC was a bold choice.

I play on ps4 but on PC would definitely use m&k. Controller is such a disadvantage.

I'm on XB1 myself. I just can't get used to m&k so I stick with what I'm comfortable with. If I was aiming to be a competitive gamer, I'd try to learn it for sure

RealGM changed the presentation of their main basketball page, and there is a lot of information there that I'm not sure everyone realizes is available. Under GM Laboratory https://basketball.realgm.com/#

You can also find stats and scores for just about anyone in any international league under different options. Under the NBA drop down there is an international link and then you can find anything there as well as G league, NCAA, High School, etc.

wow, talk about ignorant. According to this NBCsports list, Ayton isn't even a top 100 player next season, and Rubio is better than him!

Who cares? Just another chip on the collective shoulder. Up to him to right that ranking

Am I crazy to think the second unit is going to be our strength ? TJo, Bridges, Cam/Ty, CheickyD, and the Baynes just looks like it might click. This could be a 10 deep team. What a switch from last year when we could barely scrap together 3 starters

What's funnier is Saric made the list as a Timberwolve

99. Dario Saric, Minnesota: A career 12.7 points per game scorer, his scoring around the post, rebounding and ability to stretch defenses will keep him on the floor for the Timberwolves.

How is Terry Rozier 58? Or Bam, JJJ, and Thomas Bryant ahead of Nurkic? This list is insane.

Bogdan Bogdanovic looking very good as usual for Serbia. Going by the love Mikal is getting, I think BB would have been greatly appreciated too as the great glue guy on the team.

Watching him killing it for Kings/Serbia is just painful. He is one of my favourite players and i was so happy when we got him in the draft, I though it was a huge steal but well then we traded him for Chriss of course... :banghead: I also think he is actually better than a role player and has some untapped potential as an offensive creator, Kings should give him more freedom with the ball.

Yeah, I think he has a similar BBIQ to Doncic, also a competitor mentality. Of course Luka is younger and has the physical advantage, a better ball-handling skills probably, but Bogdan is a better shooter right now.

Against Angola?

The level of competition in the tournament is really low except for a few good teams.

You don't agree with the bolded part or what ? I don't see how it contradicts with your reply.

All these games during the summer means so little IMO. The competition is really low, so I am not impressed by the good play from Bogdanovic or any other solid NBA player in the tournament. It is a must for them.

Obviously I prefer him over Chriss, that was a terrible trade, but we are not talking about an All Star or something like that...he is the sixth man on a non playoff team.
