  1. Not really a surprise, he is playing for the worst coach in the NBA. Lue should've been fired as soon as LBJ left the team. Biggest joke of a coach that I can remember in recent memory
  2. I think KAT is really not into it. Maybe he expected to go into the season as the clear alpha and the Butler drama him rejoining the team last minute really did affect him. Either way, I think Butler trade is really the clear solution for KAT owners, but with Thibs calling the shots, you don't even know if that will happen. Heck D.Rose is having even more usage than Towns in some of the games this year so far
  3. waiting for people in KAT thread to say they will trade KAT for Ayton!
  4. LeBron James 2018-19 Season Thread

    Lebron missed 2 FTs, but come on if not for him it would have been over too in regulation. LBJ is also unfortunate (though he hand picks his coach so not really!) to play for poor coaches. Here is the difference between a good coach and a bad coach: Kerr in GSW vs Utah during last moments of game, told referee if Jazz misses call a time out as soon as they grab the rebound. Jonas Jerebko when he grabbed the rebound, passed out to Curry at once, good thing Kerr reminded the ref even before that could happen to immediately whistle for a timeout if they can get rebound. Warriors got lucky, but the difference of being able to inbound the ball in half court vs all the way full court is huge. Today, Luke Walton: When Lakers got the rebound there before the Lebron 3, Luke Walton didn't call timeout, LBJ was the one who signaled for time-out but refs didn't see it, and I think LBJ also didn't repeat it because he realized they cannot get the ball to half court because pass was already made. People all saying Luke Walton is a good coach it won't make a difference for Warriors if he or Kerr is the coach, well it will. LBJ did choke missing the 2 3s, but you have to give him credit he was dead tired already. Another example: Pops when he called the timeout leading to the Patty Mills go ahead jumper, he drew up a real play. Luke Walton called timeout when Mills hit the shot, with plenty of time remaining, there was no play. Just drew up an inbound to get the ball to Lebron and let him work. This works and actually ok for great players, nut just pointing out that Luke Walton is a bad coach. Well at least not as bad as Ty Lue!
  5. i have no idea why people are fussing over oladipo "struggling". if you watch the pacers play, the offense runs through him. he will be fine, the steals wil come he is a natural in it
  6. Not really, I can still remember 2 years ago he dropped already the fantasy line of the year 50/15 with multiple steals and blocks and elite %s
  7. Robinson looked good in summer league, but come on he is nowhere near the level of the top 10 players in this draft. Summer league can be deceiving. If summer league were a pure basis for how players will eventually perform, then Bayless and Stanley Johnson should be memebers of All NBA teams. With that said, Robinson did look good because he is athletic, but not top 6 good
  8. Michael Porter Jr 2018-19 Season Thread

    hard to take a guy that high who we have barely seen against legit competition. He looked good in HS, but many people who did well in HS struggled in next level, considering how deep this draft is, I value these guys over him (in no particular order) Ayton, Doncic, Bagley, JJJ, Bamba, WCJ, Sexton, Knox, SGA. just too many question marks to risk picks 6-10 for him when you got so many other choices who are much safer and potential big time players too.
  9. I doubt timberwolves will make anymore moves, but yes if either Butler or Wiggins gets traded or hurt, KAT's value jumps up big time. might even be the top player taken if that happens
  10. depends on what you are playing. top 80-90 is not bad, unless you are over drafting him. but if you are taking him at rounds 6-7 then that is a good return. also yes the stocks will be low, but what you are getting with Randle is consistency. There are players who can average 1/1/1 but you never know when they will contribute in those cats, which can be a headache in H2H. With Randle you are not going to get sexy numbers, but you know you are going to get consistent points rebounds and some assists every week
  11. Josh Hart 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    kcp is starting, KCP is the only sure starter together with LBJ.
  12. summer league can be deceiving, that's why you can't just judge by checking box score, but this guy is for real. At worst he will give you blks + 3s, a serge ibaka from 2-3 years ago. But he has the tools to be much better than that. Has the post moves, can dribble drive, has the upside to be good at FT%. When evaluating prospects the stats or cats that can easily translate to the pro level are- Rebounds, Blocks, 3s. If you excel in those cats and you get playing time, most likely they will also carry over to the NBA. JJJ is elite in 2 of those. that's why at worst you are getting a 3s / blocks guy. So I'd say floor: Serge Ibaka (this guy was a consistent top 25 guy when he was in OKC) Ceiling: Chris Bosh with blocks. I think the floor is low, and the ceiling is very high.
  13. i don't really put much weight into summer league fg%, with the exception of say someone like Trae Young who clearly just settles for 3s. JJJ had like 2-3 games of bad FG%, but you can see he has post moves, and driving ability. If he can figure how to mix things up the right way, he will be alright. Trae young is a different story, his biggest problem is he just cannot finish inside the paint against nba competition
  14. I admit, when JJJ got drafted by Memphis, my first thought was, he is gonna take some time to be fantasy relevant because they have Marc Gasol, Memphis not known to develop rookies, they might prioritize winning now with veterans, he is still raw offensively, but watching this guy play in summer league has proven me wrong. He is getting a lot of love because 1) blocks, he blocks with left and right hand with ease and great timing 2) 3s. weird release, but it is quick and works just fine. and his dad Sr. is a great shooter so it must be in the genes These 2 alone 3s and blocks makes him a great source of stocks, ala Porzingis. But this guy also has above average post moves, and can dribble drive to the basket all the way from the 3 point arc which is very impressive. Will not show in the box score, but his ability to post up and drive, will mean he will not be just a spot up shooter which can drag his FG% down because he is so talented on offense. This guy is gonna be special. comparison I can find for him now: Chris Bosh with blocks. which is scary. He also loves to play and is giving it all despite this being summer league, compared to say Ayton, who grabs rebounds with ease, but you could see slacks off at times. Many things can still happen, but I bet right now Memphis is happy no one took their bait of trading Parsons and 4th pick to another team just to get rid of that ugly contract. Player development will be very important
  15. yup, what makes this hurt more for him was it is widely believed his hip injury got worse by trying to play thru injury to help Celtics in the playoff run. But you can't blame Ainge too, that's why he is the GM, he should look out for the team's best interest.
