  1. Mirotic or Gary Harris?

    Easy choice for me...Harris.

    Man, this kid needs some help. Should have 3-4 more assists..great passes but just brick city by his teammates. Scored the last 12 of the half to keep the team in it. Idk if that Mirotic trade will happen but it would surely help some. This offense is bad.
  3. Isn't even seeing 20 min a game now. More like a strong drop.

    I think it has more to do with the fact that his offensive game isn’t catered towards the “new NBA” and outside of the blocks he isn’t a very good defender. I’m sure at this point they wish they didn’t throw all that money at him.

    The days of him getting a consistent 30 minutes appear over. I posted an article on here recently if anyone wants to scroll back a bit. Aside from the blocks he’s not a very good defender...he doesn’t rotate well and has quite a few lapses. The article shows how much better someone like Gobert is on defense compared to him. People see the blocks and think he’s so good on defense..but it’s simply not true. The fact that his offensive game isn’t catered towards the direction the NBA is headed combined with the D struggles is most likely why he’s seeing less minutes on a regular basis. Sure it’s nice to have a rim protector but you gotta be able to do more than that these days with how skilled some bigs are. Seems Spo and or the organization are seeing he’s probably better utilized in a 25 min a game role or so. I don’t think this is just some trend. Gobert who is fairly similar offensively in regards to not being a stretch type big won’t have that issue since he is an elite defender.
  6. Are you trying to do it from the app? For some reason if you reached the weekly limit it won't let you from the app. I have found if you use the webpage/website you can make the bid/claim. No idea why...actually may contact yahoo about this while it's on my mind.
  7. Not sure I would drop Johnson since Waiters is out. But, as far as this cat goes yeah man, I think the steals will come back around. They have fallen off some lately but early on they were there. Still, in 26 minutes a game he is at 0.9 for the year which isn't that bad so if he gets 30 min or so, like he has been lately, I think 1-1.2 is a reasonable expectation going forward. Not sure if you have watched him play much...but just in case you haven't FWIW he looks the part out there. Smooth, good playmaker, nice shot selection, and seems to possess a strong basketball IQ. I'm very intrigued to see what he turns into as he gets even more comfortable with the NBA style of play.

    Shouldn't even expect 1 steal a game tbh. He averaged 0.9 per game in 37 minutes last year and is at 0.8 per game for his career in 29 minutes. Not saying it can't happen but it definitely shouldn't be expected of him.

    He’s weak there...you should know this.
  10. He’s back...like I said this seemed minor considering they intially said he was targeting Thursday’s game. Hopefully no one panicked and sold low.
  11. Seems like a good time to float some buy lows as some tend to just freak out when a guy is missing a lot of shots. I think the shooting is just some regression. He is still over 46% on the season and over 37% from three. Both are respectable numbers and probably more realistic of what to expect going forward...give or take. As far as the stocks I can't explain the disappearance lately but gotta think they bounce back soon to some degree.
