  1. I would take him late third, early fourth next season before the likes of Vucevic, LA, Dieng. Basically after the 20/10/3 stock first rounders, the efficient shotblockers and the multicat bigs (Horf,Marc) are picked.
  2. He may be skilled at positioning himself and have a soft touch, but he's an undersized below the rim player who relies on his teammates to create for him (from what i've seen). If he develops a post game then he could be a 12/10 guy coming off the bench but it's tough to bank on him in the long run IMO. His foul issues won't just go away IMO because he's forced to use his active hands to compensate for his lack of size and athleticism to protect the rim.
  3. He wasn't getting any calls vs MEM (especially in the fourth: There was one sequence where he got fouled upon getting the ball inbounds, bringing the ball up and trying to run the play but the whistles stayed quiet). SA has also started getting Aldridge more involved after his return from the heart issue. During Kawhi's MVP stretch, LA was relegated to just getting kick outs and pops and it looks like they want to stop utilizing him like a role player and more like a 1B. It's worked out for them and the offense looks better with more Spurs getting better looks and being in rhythm and alleviates pressure off Kawhi.
  4. Considering he has the ability to produce just as much or more boards, threes, points while also providing some volume to anchor ft in 2 games than somebody like Wilson Chandler can in 4 games ( Faried wasn't playing during Wilson's latest hot streak where he plays the 4) I would just hold.
  5. Dropped him in both my leagues, Smith and Mahinmi got healthy and diminished his role. Smith offers better spacing, Ian is more disruptive defensively and has a decent post game.
  6. Good pace and Houston should be up by 20 by the time the fourth quarter comes along so good opportunity for atleast a double/double with a block or two.
  7. An efficiency (fg%, ft% and TO) build can counter most unfavorable schedules. This build is more bigman heavy so focus on winning rebounds and blocks then be above avg in steals and threes. You'll win most weeks. (Make sure most of your bigs can hit FT and have 2-3 FT anchors)
  8. "The first step to returning to action states the player must first be symptom-free at rest. Once the symptoms dissipate, the injured player can than sit for a neurocognitive test, most likely the ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) test. Due to the variability amongst concussed athletes, the ImPACT testing allows for each individual to be properly screened. The test is conducted on a computer and analyzes the individual’s status through neuropsychological tests that include memory recall, immediate shape and color recognition and matching. The results are compared to a set of baseline information gathered on each athlete prior to the start of the season. Before an athlete can progress to the next step in the recovery process, their IMPACT scores must return to their initial baseline numbers. From there an athlete must remain symptom free following a progressive increase of activity, starting with riding a stationary bike and concluding with non-contact team drills. Once the player has completed these steps, Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, the Director of the NBA’s Concussion Program, will be contacted to discuss the final clearance for return to play. The time needed to complete the process varies from player to player and predicting..." http://instreetclothes.com/2015/05/30/understanding-the-nba-concussion-policy/ A flicker of hope? He was reported to be on a stationary bike a few days ago and that's part of step 2.
  9. Bogdanovic Harden
  10. They closed with it. Mahinmi closed out the third (~3 min) started off the fourth, Bogdanovic got hot and Kieff subbed for Ian midway. Gortat played 0 minutes in the fourth. Also as somebody mentioned, he got into a bit of foul trouble during the 1st quarter with 2 in the first 6 mins. He returned with around 8 mins left in the 2nd and closed the quarter.
  11. Wall, Porter, Beal, Bogdanovic and Markieff
  12. Carisle really gets the best out of his guys, another steal for Dallas. (and fantasy owners!)
  13. High motor, takes up a lot of space but relies on soft shots to score, all of his shots have come off cuts. Haven't seen him post up this game yet
  14. "System players can't be MVP candidates" - PG13 / KD / Melo / ESPN / anyone else he guards. Kill em Kawhi!
  15. Went to the locker room a few minutes into the 4th, hope it's precautionary.
