  1. Damian Jones 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    The only data we have is his time in the G-League (2 blks/gm) and preseason (4 blocks in 5 games but at 16mins/game). Not confident about 1.75+ nor 26 mins a game but if he gets 25min+ he should be able to get 1.5
  2. Butler or Griffin?

    Even though in your punt build their value is fairly even, butler is much more valuable and you should be able to get way more for him. I'd try to get the trade sweetened or pursue other trades. Don't do it as is

    We don't know, however, until Boogie is back the rotation at the 4/5 is Dray/Jones/Looney/Bell. Kerr seems to trust Looney way more then Bell and is trying to build up Jones long term as both Looney and Bell are undersized at the 5. It comes down to Jones playing his role well - defense + lob threat. He's started every preseason game and the first game of the season. Gobert will be a tough matchup and hopefully he can keep his fouls down.
  4. Pick up John Collins? WHIR

    you know the answer already... do it

    To me the most underrated aspect of his game is the FG%. An analysis of stats that I saw had Blocks followed by FG% as the toughest categories to fill in terms of scarcity. With the Warriors and specifically Curry, Durant and Green he will get so many easy lobs in addition to whatever putbacks he manages to secure. I can see that FG% way higher then 50% and in the 60%+ range.
  6. Isn't Baze the SG matching up against THJ? It might be easier to go against THJ then Frank Nitty. Trae/Baze/Prince/Carter/Len
  7. Waiver Wire Season Savers 2018-2019

    Is baze on your wire? Baze gives much better defensive stats (steals/blocks) but is no where near lambs efficiency

    There's been a lot of back and forth on his ranking and stats, i think other than the %s and TOs, his ability to get steals is where he can get the biggest boost, he was at 1.2 steals in 26 last year (1.6 per 36) and even a slight improvement there will make a big difference

    With his jumping ability and against less aggressive rebounders he should hopefully be able to get 5+ rebounds in 25+ minutes

    He was boxing out Adams so others (durant/curry) got a lot of the rebounds (brook lopez esque), might get more rebounds in other matchups (gobert scares me though). As far as the FT%, he shot 70% last year in the g-league so it may not be as bad with a few bad nights light he had in the pre-season sprinkled in (4/9). I also think he has some upside on assists.
  11. @Mobdad @Idoolittle @loslakes @RCRanger03 appreciate all the feedback. Yes... prediction was eerily close.... the 6/7 shooting + 3 blks is killer, would have been happy had i started him but it was a definite risk. Actual: 26 min, 6/7 fgs, 2 assts, 3 blks 12 pts, 3 rbs, Prediction: 26 min, 6/7 fgs, 2 assts, 2 blks 14 pts, 7 rbs, 1 stl, 2 fts He was blocking out Adams so other players got the boards
  12. Opening night game thread!!!

    Durant has taken the challenge of shutting him down and he doesn't seem to be in rhythm. May need RWB to help draw the defense
  13. Opening night game thread!!!

    Did you catch Steve Kerr's expression looking at the ring?
  14. Opening night game thread!!!

    Quite a line by Marcus Morris... only 20 mins though... doubt he replicates it
  15. I can realistically see 14 pts, 6/7 fgs, 2 fts, 7 rbs, 2 assts, 1 stl, 2 blks in 26 mins..... especially w/o Adams, and Schroeder and Diallo trying to put up shots in the paint
