    ...glad I was able to scoop him up off the waiver wire in at least one of my leagues -- Nurkic makes the second half exciting to watch, hope they let the beast loose!

    I don't know, but I hope our matchup lasts more than just this week so I can survive.

    At 22, the dude is so polished. I hope we robbed the blind. Our Centers are cursed though. He probably just broke his femur standing in line at Old Country Buffet as were speaking.

    ...yeah, I am pretty sure it goes all the way thru next week so you have plenty of time to try and crawl out of that 10-1 hole you're in! :devilwink:

    It's getting down to crunch time! Just a few weeks left and we're all bunched up in the top few spots. Should be an exciting "playoff" battle.

    ...if Stotts gives him the greenlight from the 3pt line, then he could very easily be a top 50 player the rest of the season!

    Direct from the Bosnian Beast's own Facebook page (first practice from the All-star break):

    Yes, but only if he's guarded by a chair and shooting with a high school 3-point line.

    I'd much rather see him dominating that chair on the low block with a series of drop step and up and under moves and jump hooks with either hand. Leave the 3-point shooting to the guys who are paid to do it.

    Yeah, we have the 3 point options, we need the low post options.

    Leave the guy there. Let him work.

    Because we have Stotts - who is single minded.

    it's a 48 minute game and if stotts offense is truley free then i dont see why he cant dominate the post and adjust if teams swarm him. pop out for a 3. just 1. hit it. now pop out and hit a cutting dame or CJ. your defender has to guard you. now they cant double you, so post again.

    He's 22, so he's young enough to be a rookie. I do feel that he has more upside than Plumlee. Dare I say, I see some Marc Gasol in him.

    Nope. He should never shoot a 3.
