  1. Wtf is going on I picked him up and now he’s resting?
  2. So frustrating, every time he gains momentum he’s out the next game..
  3. This ride might be over until his next hot game. if anyone is looking for a good replacement, highly suggest reddish before his ownership shoots way up. He’s been really solid for a while now. Has three pos elig too.
  4. just picked him up, he’s looking great.
  5. Naz Reid is talented, but I do think this is extra rest.
  6. I have a hard time trusting him. He had a few monster performances recently and went right back to being irrelevant. DeRozan has time to rest during the asb. Pops will pop
  7. One thing I’ve been speculating is that maybe he didn’t actually have a setback, and they simply wanted to give him extra rest with the asb looming to make sure he’s good for a second half run with them being close to 8th seed.
  8. mccollum was hogging it when Trent was on the court. one of the issues wirh Portland is they rank last in assists. They milk their go to guys in different spots. That being said, when he’s on he’s clearly a solid guy, so I think a few games are warranted to see if he can bounce back. His shots were really sporadic this game, I saw stretches where he didn’t touch the ball for 5 min and kept going to the corner when CJ was the lead guard. They run more sets when Lillard is the PG, otherwise McCollum usually calls his own number.
  9. he’s so ******** bad, but Casey always has “his guys”. The veterans club, he has a soft spot for them. Norman powell used to kill it for us way before this season. He had some of the best advanced metrics on our team when Casey was here, what did Casey do? He let demarre carroll chuck up a gazillion shots and brick everything. DeMarre was one of the laziest players we’ve ever had, made so many mental mistakes on both ends, and Casey would predictably hand him 30 plus min a night. He even had iirc two games where he scored 0 points in 30 minutes, I believe he was the only player to have had such a feat. Meanwhile Norman would come in, score 12 points in just 10 minutes, and the next game get rewarded with a DNP-CD; he would make a non existent mistake and get pulled, Casey would later say he needs to teach young players lesson, same exact **** he’s pulling now. It’s amazing that there were actually people in this thread defending what a good coach he is, I cannot fathom it.
  10. Not bad at all: He has a higher ceiling for assists too, I see him make some really sick passes some times. If Draymond gets shut down, maybe they'll run the ball through him more for high post passes. Nice to see him also attempt threes in each of the last 3 games. If he does that regularly he could be a low end 1/1/1 guy with big time blocks and a strong FG% impact since he dunks a lot more on the Warriors rather than take jumpshots.
  11. For the first quote: he really does. I've been watching the games and highlights, his IQ is just so much better than it was a few years ago. Kerr said he's worked really closely with him to make him better, and it shows. He understands his position/screen rolling and the way the Warriors want him to dive on plays to set up lobs. He plays within himself now, very different from the Suns where he would chuck shots and roam around doing nothing. He's a lot more engaged/active in plays. Watching him defensively is also a marvel, he communicates a lot, he's constantly telling Warriors players where to go, he's directing them, and he makes some insane highlight reel blocks on what look like wide open layups, very good recovery skills and very quick off the ground. It's just night and day. For the second quote: Age and team fit is everything. It's why I had to convince people so hard Wood is a good player, and earlier this season I spent a lot of time in this thread telling people Chriss looks really good this year to no avail. He's 2 years younger than KAT, he came in with some major red flags about his maturity, and now he's got a coach who has helped him work through that, plus he's been humbled by being out of the league.
  12. Off the bench? Is this a ******** joke? Is Monty trying to tank? They're in the playoff hunt.. ridiculous
