    With a better skill set. I agree. They remind me a lot of each other, but WB seems to have more maturity and better ability to consistently use his talents on both ends of the court. Exum just never seems to quite get there.

    I'm more and more impressed with this kid every time he steps on the court. He made a pass today out of a poorly thrown alley oop that was well beyond his years. It's little things like that which add to how impressive he has been.

    If we cut him, I'm organizing the Neil Olshey protest down at the Rose Garden.

    I am an Olshey hater, but it's not an all facets hatred. He has a good eye for diamonds in the rough, which Baldwin looks to be...

    That Stauskas signing is gonna end up being pointless. No way should he be playing over Baldwin.

    They are completely different types of players with different skill sets so hopefully it isn't an issue.

    It is because it’s one or the other in the second unit imo. Either Baldwin plays point or CJ/Curry does.

    Since we already know CJ doesn't play PG well and I don't believe Curry is any better, I hope it is Baldwin. Also, because Baldwin plays defense 3x as well as either of them.

    I know Baldwin has looked impressive because @Rastapopoulos has sung his praises and he isn't even a Euro.

    Trae Young averaged 22.5 points in 2 other games. Against Baldwin, he was held scoreless.

    Harden was such a bitch there. Especially faking the injury.
