I guess a ranking makes it fairly clear:
I wonder if a guy like this is a suitable Masai project, or if we have enough already. He does have a 7'3" wingspan. And should be hungry enough.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: The Portland Trail...
Damn. Two of the targets left that interested me. I really wonder who Masai has in mind ... or does he see the possibility to pick up something better via a trade in the couple coming of days before...
The real problem is max contracts. If max contracts were bumped up to 35% - 40% - 45% of the cap respectively (up 10% from today), then Golden State would have needed to find another $10M to pay...
And playing for Lithuania's national basketball team is like playing for Canada's national hockey team. You're willing to make sacrifices for the glory attached to it ... and would face huge social...
I'd be a fan of a signing like Boban. Could be our next Biz. Nice, low cost, under the radar.
Not a fan. Pass.
Alright, so the bucks being paid to Demar - in my mind - can only be justified by his famed ability to keep improving every off-season.
So the question is which is more important for him to...
The difference is that with basketball being almost the state religion in Lithuania, the quality of the coaching in the youth leagues is a couple of orders of magnitude better in Lithuania than it is...
Yes, I trust Masai.
Note that Poetl:
- can maybe play some PF (which I didn't know earlier)
- fills a hole for backup centre (and no rookie would start for us this year)
- is potentially a...
I had no idea who Pascal was ... and the more I read about him, the more I like this pick.
He looks like a Biyombo who can actually shoot too, from the little I can see so far.
Another interesting article on potential bias/links between GMs, which shows that most GMs fall into groups of favorite trading partners. I wonder if these groups line up in any way with the...
If you're wondering about Sabonis's arms, have you seen his parents? Mom is the blond ex-model next to Arvydas Sabonis ... (sorry I couldn't figure out to insert the image).
Yeah, looks pretty impressive to me. That's a .611 FG%. For comparison, Luis Scola's is .450 (as is Demar's).
And 7 rebounds (and points) in 20 minutes would be over 10 in 30 minutes, so we're...
We're spending a lot of time talking about what holes these rookies could fill in our team.
If you put any of the picks at #9 up against Bebe, then Bebe may be far more ready than they are. Heck...
Stats sites like Nylon Calculus often come up with surprising insights (and oversights) by looking at the numbers. We'll only know who's right in a couple of years.
And their takeaways which are...
Here's the latest from Nylon Calculus on the draft. They focus on who Boston should take, and in doing so they break the draft down into three tiers, which may interest us.
Tier 1: Ben Simmons,...
Sabonis seems like a very solid rebounder too, with far better raw stats than any of the other names mentioned (11 rebounds/game vs 5-9 rebounds/game). Does anyone have easy access to advanced stats...
I'm surprised he isn't getting more attention in this discussion.
Do people not expect him to be available by the time we pick?
It might be interesting to see the Lithuanian towers up front.
I really like this quote by Casey.
It's a really smart way to manage the mental game. We don't need to get down a couple of games, feel like it's a tragedy and then melt down like last year. We...
Anyone else notice that so far 7 Raptors have blocked a shot tonight? (And surprisingly the only person who hasn't is JJ ... maybe because he's only played 3 minutes.)
I wonder what the record is...
I hear this kid called Bruno is pretty good at shooting 3s ... maybe we could get him (some playing time).
And seriously, when you have a kid like Bruno in the wings (pun intended), any solution...
The Wins Produced stat, that historically has not been kind to Demar, says that he is actually playing at an all star level through the first 5 games of this season (small sample size alert).
We can go even further. Apparently JV is the most efficient post-up player in the NBA.
To quote a Grantland article:
The popularity of post play has dwindled across the NBA for good reason: It’s...
Sadly, I wish that were the case.
The quote was that Casey planned to play JJ ONLY at the 4, because that was 'better for JJ'.
