You can THINK that even if you're not a betting man
The "violence" is because they can't shoot. They'll never hit a game winning shot or be a go-to scorer you can throw the ball to. That's the downside of such a center.
How many go to scorers do we need
For the starting unit, all of them.
Nurk ain’t the answer. I’d take Ayton over Nurks soft ass any day of the week and I don’t even like Ayton.
Thank you for the info, but I can't "like" that.
This isn’t the 80’S/90’s NBA.
ayton's play aint bad, he's also young still, but his contract is too much
Nurk 3 years ago is not the same Nurkic now. He's still very helpful, a lot of positives in Nurk's game, but he's not nearly as nimble as his past career. And he misses more time now with minutes restrictions and injuries. Without Nurkic the Blazers STRUGGLE. Great for tanking, Jusuf helped the Blazers get Scoot & Shaedon by skipping the last ~20 games.
Nope. 2 to 3. A rebounder and a “dog” that does the dirty work. Look at all the great teams
Exactly. Look how excited his teammates were
I wouldn’t if I were you
What does one have to do with the other?
This is finally (might be) getting entertaining.
I'm with MM on this one, no way. Ideally scoring comes from a few and the other players have complimentary skills that lead to winning.
What I value most from a 5 isn't their perimeter threat or one on one ability, it's superior defense & rebounding... Big man stuff. If he's athletic & reasonably coordinated at the least he can be effective setting picks, rolling as a solid lob threat and hitting the boards.
