Speaking of Mills, looks like Derrick Rose wasn't as big a fan from this small excerpt:

Steve Mills is talking all this black dude stuff with me, like we’re brothers and all this. He’s saying that s–t, making me think it’s going to make us closer. Come on, be yourself.

I loved New York. We were losing but I felt I was playing great. I felt like they still could have built something — or attempted to. They got rid of me but I definitely wanted to stay there.

I like this article cause it ****s on Phil and confirms the truth about how bad he was. But the fake news Phil fans will find a way to spin this.

I've been telling folks that Adam Silver is clueless.

David Stern would've found a way to freeze that ping pong ball. Although I'm more than happy with RJ but that's besides the point.

Man, when Zion is getting his dunks and RJ is struggling at first, it's going to be fun fun times on here.

When Zion isn't getting below the free throw line he's going to be struggling as well.

Some people will be disproportionately impressed by his dunks as he adjusts to the NBA, so the talk will be Zion >>> RJ.

RJ has a kind of low flash, low wiggle game that'll have a subset of fans turn on him quickly, especially if his jumper isn't going on early, which is probably the case. On the positive, RJ's style of driving has a lot to do with euro steps and absorbing and finishing though contact, so he may be able to do that right away, or, there could be some Knoxian struggles where he gets bumped off his comfort spot just enough to just miss some shots he used to make.

I think RJ will be a very good player. It'll be interesting to see the reactions if he isn't one by midseason.

Gentry should let him play the Draymond role until he gets a jumpshot.
