  1. Domantas Sabonis 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Just like I said earlier on this thread or on Myles as I own both of them, think of it as the Ibaka-JV timeshare though not matchup based. The good thing is McMillan does play them at the same time at around 4 minutes per half giving Domas his 25 mins & Myles his 30. Stuff you have to watch out for is matchups like Embiid that can get one of them into foul trouble.

    Rim protection The problem with playing Myles & Domas at the same time is that they can't defend corner 3s.
  3. Silver lining is no Thibs to return to where RoCo plays meaningless minutes either up or down 20 for the Wolves. They also seem to be implementing the same strategy the Rockets do; midrange is lava.
  4. Nikola Mirotic 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Randle has been playing well & Mirotic came off a long layoff & food poisoning where he lost mass. Game action is way different from practices & conditioning work. Let's give him a good 5 games before jumping into conclusions from Gentry's decisions to Mirotic's performances.
  5. Devin Booker 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    And I get the feeling that Booker KNOWS he's a star and getting paid like a star. He declared that him & Ayton is probably the next Shaq & Kobe. He doesn't need to prove himself if it's glaringly obvious that it is pointless this season.
  6. Myles Turner 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    We're a [bleeping] squad now!
  7. Kristaps Porzingis 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    There is a sweet spot to tanking this year. The Knicks just have to be one of the 3 worst teams for them to get the best odds. They're certainly a lock to be in that spot as both them & the Cavs look like G-league teams without their marquee players. The Bulls got back key players in Dunn & Lauri while the Suns look like they are getting better defensively. A top pick in Zion or RJ, a healthy KP, & a star willing & able to handle the spotlight & scrutiny in NY I think is enough to attract a supporting cast. I believe that Kristaps will play this season, however he will be limited just like when PG returned from his injury. It is in the Knicks best interest as well to see how he does in game & get his confidence back before offering him any kind of extension. Keep in mind though that the Knicks have one of the worst playoffs scheds in H2H (3-4-2). Any b2bs will automatically be a game off for him. He'll just be a blocks specialist for anyone that is going to stash & add him.
  8. Anthony Davis Season Outlook 2018-2019

    He went to the well to replenish mana or he just took a dump.
  9. Nikola Mirotic 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Mirotic is a better fit in the starting lineup with Elf as PG and only AD, Julius, and Niko plays the 4-5 for the Pels. Plenty of minutes for them to eat. No reason to worry as long as he is healthy.
  10. Larry Nance Jr. 2018 Outlook

    Two weeks, stash if you have IR.
  11. Willy Hernangomez 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Borrego didn't give the reins to Willy even when Cody was out earlier this season. He just doesn't contribute much to winning basketball. He's like Kanter. Cody's injury likely ends Charlotte's .500 ways.
  12. Myles Turner 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    I don't like the idea of Myles in a mask even though that would make him come back sooner. He was in a groove shooting wise but that sweat builds up in that mask as the game goes on and it can get annoying. Didn't he wear a mask before as well or am I mistaken? Was it also for a broken nose?
  13. Nikola Mirotic 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Niko is also trying to gain back his mass from that food poisoning aside from stabilizing his ankle. Lost ~10 lbs afaik. The Jrue-AD-Niko lineup crushed opposing teams on offense. Hopefully he regains his touch once he comes back.
  14. Robert Williams 2018-2019 Outlook

    For those who watch Celtics games, does he jump on pump fakes a lot? The blurbs always point out his foul rate isn't high and that is always the key for shot blockers.
