    Man! I love these guyz. Even in these short couple of clips, you can see the chemistry. They have fun being around each other. Go Blazers!!

    What the hell is CJ doing on that clip? He needs to pass and not take a difficult contested floater. CJ can be such a ballhog sometimes. I hope he doesn't do that in the real games

    I like CJs new hairstyle, even if he’s swagger jacking Trent. It’s always good when you have someone to look up to.

    sometimes teammates bond that way and purposefully mimic.
    Remember the stache brothers of okc?

    that shit was hilarious!

    Ant's got time to get schooled by the best now. Learn from it, and then do his own schooling later.

    Really? Looked pretty jammed down low. So if Giannas, Lebron, or any other top player do the same you'd get on their case? CJ is an excellent finisher. I want finishers, not guys who aren't confident in their own abilities, who are afraid to take the shot.

    I especially like the little helicopter rotor at the top. Looks very whimsical.

    Btw anyone actually watched how Memphis plays? They start 6’11 240+lb Jaren Jackson at PF and 6’9 230lb Kyle Anderson at SF. Lakers have a similar construction, size wise. We’re gonna be seeing a big pairing with Melo at the three quite a bit.

    Melo have slim down a lot. Stotts said they be looking at Nurk and Whiteside together for next 2 and half weeks. But that first practice I guess they a lot together.

    I wanna see how the experiment works, mainly for next seasons purposes. If it works, you could justify paying Whiteside starter money and having enough minutes for Melo.

    He's thin and nimble. I hadn't realized last season that his slowness was from being out of shape. I thought it was age.

    Very good news.

    CJ is the starting shooting guard for an exciting up and coming team, that's what most 2's do nowadays. CJ imo opinion is as good as Dame at finding seams for fall away or stop and pop, 9-15 footers. Trent will become the best at it soon as he has that physical game in the paint for a 2/3.

    well, Zman with his 6'11 250 lb tenacious elite defenders body, was going to cut into Melo's 4 minutes so he said, its good to be going back to his natural position. We'll see how nimble he is when he tries to blow by another elite 3.
    That video showed he has leaned down for sure but I thought he still had slow moves and feet work.

    You made a transposing error when you tried to type 205. Do you have crossed eyes? Maybe you meant 025.

    Collins weighed 232 on his predraft measurements. Are you trying to convince HG that Collins has lost 27 pounds since the measurement? or is it that you made a transposing error?
