    All we ever see is posters complaining about the heavy load the guys i mentioned are playing. You want them practicing hard and playing 5 on 5 between games?

    It's not predictable after the fact. Bottom line, you never had a chance at NBA basketball. I had a heck of a lot better baseball career than you ever had in basketball, but i would never falsely claim i could have played MLB :bgrin:

    C'mon. Stotts doesn't know anything. We don't listen to Stotts around here. Unless it's something we don't like and we want to make it sound bad.

    Everything he says is bad. One of the worst coaches we've had for the blazers. Just not everyone has come around to where we are: The right side.

    He doesn't say much. I agree with that. I absolutely hate the interviews. I dislike interviews by any coach before, after, or during games. I really dislike exit interviews at the end of the season and it's becoming even worse the interviews for media day. Nothing said is anything more than generic "Gotta put in the work" "Mental toughness" "Made the right passes" stuff you hear from everybody with a mic in their face.
    Both teams played hard-

    So Nurk is going to practice with the G-League Warriors.....and Santa Clara County just limited gatherings to a max of 1000 due to C-19.

    I get the joke, but Meyers was never that nimble.

    All jokes aside, if Zach and Nurk are indeed the front line of the future, Nurk having the ability to space the floor from three would be very beneficial.

    I agree and I don't see any danger of Nurk turning into Meyers. Nurk loves to bang and has a great sense of where he is on the court and where he should be on both ends. No, adding shooting touch to his game can only make him a better second option to Dame. Think of just how effective the Nurk/Dame pick and roll is and now imagine what the versatility that adding a pick and pop option would look like. Also they could choose to start the two man action further out at times if Nurk is a danger from outside. How could other defenses stop that unpredictability, especially if our 2 and 3 are able to space the floor spotting up. Then Zach can do what he does best by being there to clean up down low in our half court sets. Dame and Nurk being Stockton and Malone 2.0 with the right complimentary pieces... CJ can be Jeff Hornaceck, why not?
