    My "Like" to "Post" ratio is much better than his so I'm certain he worships reading my posts. Might be the one true reason he keeps coming back. That and that thing I taught the Mrs.

    He probably thinks it's what happens when he stand in the aisle on an airplane.

    Scoot hitting his 3-pointers on high volume to finish the season. Walker looking good too.
    (Both are for 7 games. )

    ^ Let's just hope Scoot can replicate Haliburton's absurdly good assist-to-turnover games.

    This is an area that gets better with experience so I would assume he will improve.

    let's hope so because if not and he's averaging 10 assists he'd be averaging 6.3 turnovers

    I was watching Luka yesterday with the ball after getting a steal. He doesn't just blindly drive and force a bad shot in transition. He doesn't care at all about the fast break at times. He makes sure he keeps possession of the ball and then works for a good shot. Doesn't matter if the shot falls or not just make sure you give your team a chance at a good shot. I grow tired of watching the Blazers work hard on defense and actually get a stop or steal just to go barreling down court only to turn it back over.

    That's just youthful exuberance. I'm sure that kind of thing will become smoother with time.

    Luka has amazing passing. I saw him throw a lob to full speed Derrick Jones in transition. It was incredible balloon soft touch. Too high it would have sailed, too low it would have been picked. It was a goldilocks lob for a sick slam.

    Didn't expect a complete snub from both all rookie teams.

    His strong finish to the year obviously didn't get noticed apparently.

    Motivation.

    20 years ago Scoot would've made it for sure with his per game stats. Now there are a lot more advanced stats and team success considered. Scoot was one of the least efficient players in the league last year from the start until the all star break. He was certainly the worst starting PG in the NBA. Then later when his stats improved the team was horrific so they were probably considered to be hollow stats.

    I still think it would be fine to bring him off the bench next season. I'd much rather see him effective off the bench than getting killed as a starter, it would be better for his development as well as the team success. But its kind of odd to consider having your second most valuable player come off the bench when a team is rebuilding and going to have a horrible record.

    I'd think Brogdon is traded, and a slim chance Ant as well, but perhaps we add a rookie PG too. Will be interesting to see what this roster looks like in July and at summer league. Hope Scoot plays summer league.

    Wholeheartedly disagree about not starting him. We just wasted a year of development and have largely the same roster questions we did last year.

    For fucks sake, let's not do this again. Let this kid sink or swim. It's time.

    I am not sure I understand what you are saying. Let's not do what again? He started more than half the games he played. And he averaged 28.5 minutes per game. The only wasted development last year was Sharpe getting injured. That one hurt for sure.
