    What's shocking is that some NBA execs think Rose has an NBA future TO be in danger...

    There's a chance he might be an UFA. Depending on the market, he could be a cheap pickup

    Sheeeeeeiiiiit! You think you get frustrated watching Aminu running around out there dribbling the ball, this dude makes or Lance Stephenson look like John Stockton.

    He's averaging like 4 assists a game this past month. Along with 19/9. He's got way more game than Aminu, even with the turnovers.

    Nah, I like his game and that he is so young. He’s just an out of control train half the time out there. Reminds me of a bigger Artest.

    Dame is currently 11th in the league in PER at 24.7; that seemed weirdly low (the ranking, not the PER value), so I looked and

    in 2013, he'd be 5th
    in 2008, he'd be 5th
    in 2003, he'd be 7th
    in 1998, he'd be 5th
    in 1993, he'd be 5th
    in 1988, he'd be 4th

    I know PER sucks now, blah blah blah, but it seems to match the eye test that WOW there are a lot of really great players in the league right now.

    Damn close to a travel since it looks like he hit the floor before he released the ball......but then, he’s LBJ.....

    That's why I was saying Dame's stats this year are not significantly, if any, better than LMA's best year. The offensive game is extremely inflated right now, and Dame is perfectly situated to take advantage of that.

    I was just looking at that myself. Honestly, I'd say it's this one. Prior to that, probably 2010-11.
