I don't think age matters as much as seasons in the league.
I think it's pretty interesting... play by play isn't very helpful in a basketball broadcast, IMO, because there are so few players (it's harder, for example, to spot who made a tackle in college football) and given the overall lack of exciting play by the Blazers, at least hearing Det and Petrie tell stories is something interesting
Gonzaga/TCU game is on.
NBA team definitely prefer younger players due to their upside relative to older players (in terms of where they draft them and, presumably, how much they pay them).
CJ was drafted as a mature college player and then took a couple of years to before becoming near-all star level in terms of scoring production. Anfernee was drafted young and took three seasons before hitting 17ppg. While that is one year longer, it's still more impressive than CJ's early career and indicates a better career arc to me.
I hope Billups accomplished all of his goals for this game whatever they were.
Because he sure did not make it interesting or entertaining to watch.
Why is Nassir Little in the game instead of Shaedon Sharpe?
I don't think I can watch much more of this garbage.
Successful tank! Made a game of it.
The nosedive continues.
The Blazers obviously have problems, but I'm sick of watching our games officiated like we're an average American college team doing a tour of the Soviet Union in the 1970s and all three of the refs have last names ending with -vich.
There were several cases tonight where the game wasn't called the same on both ends, but Nurk's 3 that was retroactively wiped off was the equivalent of the officials saying "We don't want to risk this going to OT." It's supposed to be clear visual evidence to overturn, and there wasn't a way to clearly tell on that. Bogus.
That Portland was close for a decent part of the game is quite an accomplishment given that Dame/Ant were 10-32.
Holy Bricklayer Batman!!!
magic only down 5 in crypto arena
And Lillard, Simons, Thybulle and Little, 2 for 21 from 3.

This dude is not that good even when healthy. I hope we let some other team overpay him.
I get the frustration with Jerami. I want to see him back, but not at 30 to 35 mil. Too much chedder for his production. 25 mil. is about max. But the key now is winning that lottery.
Tonight was the 1st night in awhile where i thought Dame had heavy legs. He's been carrying too much weight. Nice to see Nurk finally show up. A day late, and a dollar short of course. But Nurk needs to work on his consistency from here out. This kind of performance needs to be more of the norm. Nurks best value is on this team. I hope he realizes how good he has it right now. He'd be a bench guy in most other places with the way he's played this year. Time to buck up Nurk.
You're entirely right that the cost will determine whether it's worth doing it or not. I'm just frustrated with him and I feel it's inevitable he's going to get too much from us. I hope I'm wrong.
He wasn't hitting from the perimeter (maybe, as you say, because of heavy legs) but he attacked the basket so effectively. I winced a couple of times when he hit the ground so hard.
The dude is amazing.
God who cares at this point…
He came down hard on his left, and looked to have ice on his right during rest. He's a fighter. Blood and guts, no surrender. Cronin's job is to find more players with the same mindset.
Im saying for the season let him sit. It’s over at this point. We’re trying to lose as much games as possible right now
