  1. There's a reason nobody has responded in this thread - we all dropped Jrue and moved on
  2. He has 3 games in the next 4 days, good streaming option
  3. That's a terrible commish Well, sounds like a group that's not really fun to play anyways. Sorry man, time to look for a new league lol
  4. Alvin Gentry hinted on Thursday that the Pelicans could shut down both Jrue Holiday (abdominal strain) and E'Twaun Moore (quad) for the final 12 games of the season. The Pelicans are essentially playing for ping-pong balls at this point, so there won't be any incentive for New Orleans to rush either of these guys back. Gentry said they'll be "overly cautious" as they recover from their injuries, and with just 12 games remaining, it wouldn't be shocking to see these two in street clothes to close out the year. Frank Jackson and Kenrich Williams should continue to start in their absence. Original Tweet: Will Guillory‏Verified account @WillGuillory FollowFollow @WillGuillory More Based on what Alvin Gentry just told us, I wouldn't be surprised to see Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore eventually shut down for the rest of the season. He said the team will be "overly cautious" with them as they recover from injuries. But since it didn't come from Alvin Gentry's mouth directly, and you only ride with AG and not me nor Wll Guillory, it's just speculation and utter panic reaction
  5. Lakers will value Wagner more than Williams because Wagner was a first round pick. I think Wagner will get more opportunities
  6. Oooooh so you are hoping you hit the lottery. No wonder you are reading Gentry’s words so literally
  7. Lol you are the one who’s trying to feel better. I am already resigned to the fact that I lost Jrue ROS
  8. If he's sitting out, wouldn't you have just said "what a quitter?" lol
  9. No, because that's just coach speak and PR script. What's Gentry supposed to say? "We are saying re-evaluation 7-10 days from now, just so it doesn't look like we already decided he's out for the season" or "He's really hurt, but 7-10 days from now there will only be maybe 10 games left in a meaningless season, so we will most likely just shut him down then" Which do you prefer? It's the same as a reporter asking an NBA player "how did you win the game tonight?" and he answers "we played with heart" or "we made more shots".
  10. Walking around after injury doesn't mean much. Kobe walked around after achillies tear. Rondo walked around after ACL tear.
  11. Looks like over-extension to me. Didn't look like he tore anything because his movement wasn't violent when he got hurt. It's either nothing or season-ending, just because of the fact that it's 2019 and Timberwolves are out of playoffs.
  12. Doesn't play like a rookie because he played 3 years in college. I think we might be able to get some Sabonis stats if Lakers play him the minutes.
  13. If it was up to players, players would always play. Tanking is only for the organization
  14. Maybe it’s bad phrasing. I shouldn’t used “typical guard stats”, I should’ve said “he’s just a guard”. To me, guards are always easier to replace because typically there will be at least 1-2 competent guards on every team’s bench who are just waiting for the team to put the ball in their hands; when they get the ball they will put up numbers. Big men, on the other hand, are the opposite. Besides the superstars, there are not many bench bigs who can put up just because you give them 35 minutes.
