    If we lose this meaningless games because of these fucking bias refs, I'm going to lose it.

    Honestly i think we should consider to bring in a veteran PG and give Anfernee another year to bulk up and learn how to play defense.

    If we're serious about winning a championship we can't give meaningful minutes to Simons, he's just not ready unfortunately.

    I think you wait until mid way through the year. Give him time and see if by midseason he is looking better. This is essentially his rookie year in terms of actually getting real minutes.

    I wouldn't bring one in right now.
    But I did lose my shit when Simons pushed Skal to go check the perimeter guard. While Simons made the decision to check the big.
    Led to that nice reverse by green all because of lazy effort.
    But it was lazy by both of them. Not just Simons.

    I don't think you've ever told us what city you reside in? How was your summer?

    I really hope he proves me wrong because, like i said, i was so excited to see him after Olshey's comments.

    but at this point he doesn't seems enough polished on offense and and is a total nightmare defensively.

    Does he have an incredible talent for scoring? yes, but it's not enough, AT THIS POINT (he still so young)

    I guess Im of the opinion that if they really believe in him they gotta just make him play and learn thats the only way he’s gonna figure it out, thats the only way the game will slow down for him.

    I’m with you on that. I think he’ll actually be better as a pure off guard player. PG is not his game right now

    Really not liking Whiteside. He seems so lethargic and lazy

    Then let's go to the OT area, and discuss the hipster cult that you fucking worship. What'd ya think about that?

    He's got sneaky hands though on defense. You'd think up high is where he'll block it but he's been smacking the ball down low in this game at least. I didn't expect that from him.
