    His subconscious is honest.

    Yes, for him and Dame and CJ. Someone is going to have to go out and guard him. Loved his shot selection and no more flippy-dos avoiding contact.

    Dame and CJ already in mid season form
    Nurk looked goooooood
    Stauskas is a pleasant surprise so far
    Simons is moving my needle, he's gonna be amazing

    Baldwin have been disapointing so far
    Zach have been a bit underwhelming too
    Biggie.... yeah

    Not to get all political but I booed the shit out of that Cavanaugh guy that plays for the Jazz last night: homophonic guilt by association.

    I always knew you were homophonic.

    He is not "my solution". He did work on his body and game during the summer and he is much more talented than ML and Swanigan.

    So yeah, i would give a shot to a former top pick who wants to work for his next contract over settling for the placeholders we got now.
    Neil Olshey raved about this strategy in the past too (hunting for "failed" top picks).

    I would do endless "Tryouts" until i'll find better players, it's common sense imo...all you are risking is bottom tier players.

    And his injury is some minor ankle injury, 2 weeks tops lol
    This is how he played before it happened:


    Only 22 years old too ffs...

    Leonard, Collins, Stauskas, Curry, Baldwin... Don't like the ball handling and ball security with this group, offense is stagnant because none of them is talented or even confident enough.

    Looks like we're headed to another season where CJ plays a double role as SG and backup PG while Dame plays the entire 1st quarter every night.

    Glad Simons showed some balls though, we really need him and Trent to exceed expectations.

    EVERYONE on the court has to be able to shoot the 3 apparently.

    We’re gonna need all of them with Meyers protecting the paint.

    This comment bothers me.

    The NBA places their own ads on our videos and make money off them... off of people creating good content for their fanbase. The NBA is fine with these videos since they essentially get paid for channels that are advertising the NBA...

    So I don't see why you're bothered.

    I wouldn't worry about it--your videos are gold. Keep it up!
