    Haha what the hell is he even out there for against the bulls?  He's another one who drafted himself in high stakes fantasy league that plays til end of season?

    Incentives worth millions are on the line depending on games/minutes played in the modern NBA. 

    Holds doubly true for oft injured players like Lowry & Embiid.


  2. Laker offer or not, the way the Pels have handled this has set them back years. Extremely Petty. From removing Davis from the intro video right away, to the team's social media pages to reeling Lakers along with no intention of a trade, asking for 8 picks, sitting down a healthy AD. This isn't the first time a star has asked for a trade and won't be the last. Neither did AD threaten to sit out or force a trade right away. 

    No player was going to sign in NO as it is but they've rubbed front offices & agents the wrong way as well now. You don't have to make trades but dealing in good faith is integral. Extremely unprofessional, juvenile ownership. 


  3. Lol @ trusting Snake Ainge. Demps will regret this. The only better offer that could come in the summer is if the Knicks get the number 1 pick(5-10% chance) AND Durant or Irving are on board. And both need to happen because the Knicks would just keep Zion, otherwise.

    Ainge will probably offer Smart, Brown and three mid round picks. He's not giving up Tatum for a 1 year rental.

     

    The Pelicans feel slighted, sure but this is just bad business. Not only are you letting go of the best deal, in all likelihood but alienating future players making the front office look like a joke.


  4. At the moment, He's just not a very good real life player. He can't shoot, he can't even break down the defense anymore- often turning it over when he tries.

    All that said, it's a brand new offense. Not the easiest to figure out either and PG's have the most to learn and take a little while to figure it out. 

     C'mon man, Mudiay/Sato. Really?

     

    Give it some time.

     


  5. The problem is the Tom Chambers guy is playing 8 Cat while we all are playing 9.

     

    He's convinced that everyone is punting TO, like they dont count.Lmao.

     

    No Sir, Not "Everyone" is punting Turnovers. Other than Harden, Westbrook, Embiid, Giannis nobody is "forcing" you to punt TO's anymore .

     

    And if you're actually fleecing people left, right and centre you in fact are the one playing in family leagues. LOL.

    If McGee called in sick for 4 days in a row and the company I work at, his a** would have been fired. Especially with the salary he is getting paid.  C'mon get on the court, cough and sneeze at the opposition and spread some cheers you Shaqtin' Fool.

     

    Do you slave away at a Nike sweatshop in S.Korea by any chance?

     

    If a guy hit by pneumonia got back within four days at my firm, he would be sent back home and given a raise and a medal. 


  7. Whiteside is terrible! Miami plays so much better with him off the floor. They came back from 17 down to almost send it to overtime. Doesn't contest shots, 0 help defense, doesn't even Try contesting a jump shot. Just wants to stay back near the basket and collect his boards.

    As a Whiteside owner I'm upset, but Whiteside is probably the worst defensive Center in the league at the moment, at least Towns tries.

    Every time i read this site, i think he made LBJ or KD-stats, then i looked his stats and then i think, okay the centers in Phoenix are fantasy-studs too.

    Reminds me of Chriss pre season and Jarett Allen hype early season. The guy has potential and the blks are nice but he was already playing 20 mins. I'm not holding someone a month and a half for 1.5 blks with a dash of 3s. :rolleyes:

    No..he will be worth it. Looking at the magic bench makes me think he's in like for close to 25 mins. They don't have many bench players. Starters are playing too many mins. I'm holding and I have no doubts about him. Hoping he's ready by next week

     

    He's playing behind Gordon, Vucevic. who also has Biyombo as a backup- already. Not sure where the 25 minutes are going to come from. He's certainly no SF but maybe the Magic roll with Isaac, Gordon, Vuc frontcourt at time. Only time will tell. But with so much uncertainty pertaining to his role and talent, not to mention his return, I''m just not sure why I'm stashing him especially with Whiteside & THJ on my roster. Too close to quit now, though.

    I hear what you're saying, but If you had good offensive system with a proper hierarchy that wouldn't happen. He's one of the premier scoring bigs in the league.

     

    Kevin Durant puts up monster lines despite playing next to Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, and vice versa.

     

    When Teague, Taj Gibson, and Wiggins have more shots than a young big man with hall of fame potential you have a serious problem on your hands. None of those guys have ever averaged 28 PPG over the course of 3 months on 60% FG and 20 shots a game. Thibodeau just likes his Chicago guys way too much, and he force feeds them the ball in an iso heavy motionless offense. Wiggins fights for his scraps because he wants to get his, and then Towns sporadically gets the ball.

     

    Even when they set him up in the post, he gets deep position, and these guys look him off - they completely disrespect him and he should get mad. THEY ALL do this to him, I've seen Teague, Butler, and Wiggins countless times just ignore him when he's right infront of them set up for a post pass. Then one of them goes into the mid range area (pick whomever between the 3) and opts for a difficult jumper instead, it happens time and again.

     

    That's something you can hammer home as a coach, I would yell GIVE HIM THE BALL. That's the intent / design of the play, for them to iso post up Towns. When they gave him the ball today in the post he took Jordan / Gallinari to school. But they pick and choose when they feed him, because they're all selfish players, and they're not being held accountable. So it's not even so much bringing the guys in, they do have plays set up for him to get the ball, it's that they think they're better than he is and they aren't respecting him.

     

    You can get all the star power you want, but unless you put team first and understand who your go-to guys are, you won't ever truly win when it matters.

     

    Spoken like a true fantasy owner!

     

    Their offense is fine, they're #5 in ORTG, #26 in DRtg.  I own Towns too but I also watch a lot of T'Wolves basketball.  Thibs is a disaster of a coach, but this isn't on him. Kat is literally the worst defender in the league. The Vets are doing him a favor, he has to learn how to play the right way. He got too caught up in his hype this season and clearly didn't work on his game. Generational talent is going too far, he's more VC than a Kobe. A first ballot HOF, but no all time great.

    Wow. I can believe this but it’s a shame. There’s gotta be better ways to teach a 22 year old to move his feet. By most accounts I’ve seen, he’s a humble team player who is a frustrating step behind on help and switches. To me he looks more lost than lazy. 

     

    The cure is patient coaching and hard work over time. In his case, a ****-ton. You’d think elite NBA guys had a history of great attitude and extra effort after being publicly dissed and made an example of on court. It sucks that tough guy talking heads can turn people that way, if the critical voices actually reflect the fan-base.

     

    Turnstiles who are the team’s best scorers get possession-subbed down the stretch, not frozen out of games and pilloried in the media — especially if the team is winning. 

    I don't think he's going to be frozen out of the offense. He is the franchise when it's all said and done. Maybe it was a one game thing to send a message. Butler & Taj are hard nosed vets and maybe they already tried asking nicely. Lol

    Personally I'm hoping it is effort that is missing. I would hate for KAT to have the Defensive IQ of Valancunis.

     

    I was just answering the guy that people in Minny are more concerned with Kats defense than his touches. This is the home of KG, gaudy stats don't impress them, hustle and effort does. It'll be a lot easier if KAT could just start trying on defense like Wiggins has.
