  1. Noah Vonleh 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Again, this is really the truest assessment of Vonleh. I still maintain it is hard to argue that he got "ample" opportunity in P-Land when he was ceding minutes to a player like M. Leonard. Fizdale has a proven track record with players who more or less mirror Vonleh -- all pedigrees aside.

    Ha, ya PLENTY of opportunity? Yikes -I think he was sub 18 minutes every year in Portland. The guy was 20 when he got there with all the physical tools required. -Ceded minutes to Meyers Leonard. Meyers Leonard. -Portland definitely thought they were contenders and development clearly took a back seat (aminu is great, but his ceiling is/was nowhere near Vonleh's) -Vonleh has always demonstrated commitment to both ends of the floor. Good defensive ability/could be a better blocker Any way, I guess if you view him as having ample opportunity -- that's fine. There were legit arguments for him to get more playing time while he was there -- only amplified when Leonard was exposed and Vonleh left stagnant at 21yrs old Reasons optimism: -If Fizdale is for real, he has a pretty good track record with bigs similar to Vonleh like Bosh and Gasol.

    This guy was adored coming out of college onto the Blazers -- they just never gave him much run. Only 23 -- he has most of the tools to be good and has improved... We'll see how he sustains himself and whether or not Fiz settles down -- if only a little.
  4. Melvin Gordon 2018 Outlook

    Ekeler not really a great example for why people should carry handcuffs. They/Rivers won't ever use him as a feature back. Rivers won't just auto-trust Ekeler like he does Gordon. So, ya, you'll secure 6-13pts by holding Ekeler with possibility of boom/bust -- still an argument to be made that holding him cost you one of those "waivers of the year". That being said, I understand the pursuit of security --- It just isn't as airtight as some people like to think.
  5. Nikola Jokic 2018-19 Season Outlook

    If you are complaining about Jokic, you are a clown. He is making his whole team better. Making your whole team better isn't passive. He is making the decision to involve everyone on the court. God, it's like you all got Melo posters on your bedroom ceiling.
  6. Shai-Gilgeous Alexander 2018-19 season outlook

    It's basically 100% collusion. -You possessed information that you considered helpful enough to pass along. -You gave the information to a select party while withholding from all others. -Even if the result was unsatisfactory, your intent was for one competitor to know and to know it, act on it, and benefit from it while all other competitors did not. It's really kind of a principled criticism -- only someone silly enough to say out loud what they did and with whom could you ever get caught. oh wait. The bold part makes your argument much worse considering they are league mates. IE competitors.

    Man, Who cares SGA v. Heyward. - Heyward is clearly a disappointment this season. His team is deep and he will be coddled for potentially deep playoff run. Many people paid premiums for Heyward. - SGA is locked into an essential role. His development is key to the team/coach's success and tenure. Many people paid close to nothing for him. Ya, I guess we can push this SGA is better argument -- but, why bother when most SGA owners already won by NOT drafting Heyward AND also PICKING UP SGA for nothing. Heyward is a tremendous RL BBaller -- but, he isn't set up for anything close to the fantasy success that SGA is. Context, context, context.
  8. Kevin Durant 2018-19 Season Outlook

    I don't own Durant anywhere, just stopping in here to declare KD as one of the all-time vindictive superstars. Dude will initiate the long-fuse on GSW demise cause he is so petty/sensitive. Everyone knows what Draymond is -- and even knowing that -- KD couldn't handle the first truth bomb Draymond laid on him. Now KD "liking" posts about rumored Draymond trades in the event Boogie is healthy. KD trying to play this all off like he is cool-MJ-salty, but really he is just poor Boston-Mom salty.
  9. Shai-Gilgeous Alexander 2018-19 season outlook

    I own him in an 8 man
  10. Shai-Gilgeous Alexander 2018-19 season outlook

    I'm not defending the Top 5 talk -- but, let's not forget what kind of impact Mitchell had last season as a rookie -- and while he played very well, a lot of his success was simply making the most of ample opportunity. Shai has already demonstrated the ability to influence the game through in all facets of the court and is now being given the opportunity. Could be a big year.
  11. Lauri Markkanen 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Isn't he better than Mirotic? Mirotic kind of in a dream scenario this year... Markkanen probably less so, but will have more opportunity.
  12. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    LeVert is mostly drafted. Siakham had hype, but a lot of usage/opportunity questions.
  13. Pascal Siakam 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    3rd best player on the Raptors.
  14. Otto Porter 2018-2019 Season outlook

    Not only is D12 a questionable leader, he hasn't yet demonstrated being a positive force in any locker room he has been a part of.
  15. Otto Porter 2018-2019 Season outlook

    No. Beal shouldn't be expected to -- he is there for buckets. The knock on Wall has always been leadership. He has always had questioned leadership. This season will really hammer him for that lacking quality.
