    Are you trying to start another strain of Nurk Fever?

    That's pretty damn good. Advanced stats indicate that he is killing our offense, but he's a monster defensively. Wouldn't throw more than 15 mil per at him, but he's a keeper for sure.

    Idk last year Nurk fever was like the flu this year...killing. Now its mild as the NBA's immune system has built up antibodies, and become more resistant.

    Look i am really not into the finger rolls and soft floating sideways glancing shots the guy puts up constantly. But you have to admit. 44-30 ain't bad at all.

    I'd love to see Nurk get his feet set and get the ball inside more. He could really pound it in the paint, but not under Stotts.

    This is the stuff that makes me want to pull my hair out. Do you actually think Terry Stotts is telling the guy not to do that? Get real? Stotts would breathe way easier if Nurk would throw it down every time. Thinking he doesn't want that or isn't telling him to do it is just crazy talk.

    Stotts required pace is to fast for Nurk to get those kind of looks.

    Bunch of middle of the road guys except Dame.
    Now think about this for a second. They have the third youngest roster in the league.

    Nurk and Dame are bookends.

    I see.
    So then you have been watching him yelling and screaming at the top of his lungs for players to push the pace also right? Because that is what i am seeing. Then you have noticed him pull Nurk after multiple lazy passes and lethargic play. Even playing Meyers to try to infuse some kind of energy right?

    Nurk cannot strive in such a fast paced game. And yeah Stotts is always saying faster faster...those lazy passes and lethargic play is because Nurk is not built for that kind of speed. He needs to be fed in the paint.
