    So now Aldridge runs the team? The Spurs use the Aldridge system?

    This happened when Bill Fitch stopped coaching the Rockets. Don Chaney failed, then rookie head coach Rudy Tomjanovich just let Olajuwon decide the system. The Hakeem system was the Fitch system. They won 2 championships. The stupid Lakers were impressed, so they hired Tomjanovich and he lasted half a season.

    Is the Aldridge system the McMillan system, or the Stotts system?

    Ingram is so inconsistent.

    This is reminiscent of AI being the first Georgetown player to leave early to go pro. That was the beginning of the end for John Thompson, IMO.

    Guys like 20 years old. These are just kids, no matter what number they were drafted at.

    Would love opinions about these rookie season numbers. As much hate Ball gets around here, he isn’t looking that bad. I respect his game, I just ignore all the family drama.

    I picked JKidd as a comparison. Only because since he burst onto the scene, he is the one whose game most reminds me of. Hadn’t ever looked at the numbers before, pretty damn close.

    I dont understand this. Because Jason Kidd had a historically bad rookie season for someone that grew into a HOFer, it means that Lonzo is... fine? Not having an awful year too?

    I was thinking he was older. You were right as usual. :bgrin:

    I like his potential, but then again that's one of our favorite words around here.

    Jason Kidd averaged 12/8/5 in the NBA 18 months out of HS. I’ll take that from my PG at ANY age.

    Lakers on a 3 game winning streak. Ball with a nice night against the injured plagued Spurs. 18/10/6/4 on 64% shooting. Not a bad night for the rookie.

    The Portland Trail Blazers currently have the same +/- (+1.1) as the championship contending Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Made some changes to your statement. This year, I wouldn't be surprised if the Cavaliers don't make the Finals or even lost in the second-round. I know that's been said before, but it feels like both James and the franchise are just marking time til he blows town.
