So glad that Amari Bailey got 4 whole minutes of action in a 30+ point blow out.
Great job Cliff.
He can’t be gone quick enough
This is the stuff when folks say he’s not good for young guys, for development. And while I respect the view that we are decimated by injuries, and have a non-NBA bench, this is in part why. Yes, the talent eval might be poor, but playing an 8-9 man rotation from game 1, and not seeing any guys up to be able to fill in gaps is a huge aspect as well. I’d argue is a larger component than injuries alone as injuries are inevitable.
I didn’t watch the game last night. I saw the report of who was active and decided to take a game or so off until the new guys can play.
I saw the highlight on ESPN of thanasis antetokounmpo pulling the “Shammgod” crossover move on Thor in the 4th. I used quotes because I don’t really think that was a great example of that move, but whatever it was in the same ballpark I guess.
Is Thanasis the most important/powerful player in the league? I feel like he’s “Bronny lite” in terms of importance. Bronny has not played good basketball at USC and is going to be drafted WAY too high just because of Lebron. The only reason thanasis is on the team is to appease Giannis.
I know i would be a poor GM because as soon as i saw thanasis use that ugly excuse for a shammgod and score on Jt thor i would have cut thor as soon as the game was over. Thats how absurd it looked.
Okay, thank you. I totally agree. I was like, for real?
That move was no shammgod cross. I see the shammgod crossover as an inside outside dribble crossover that is oversold with the body for misdirection.
In all honesty, I was hoping this thread would receive no replies after the chat post, and we could all just sort of forget it happened.
Probably way too much hope going into viewing what was likely going to be a disaster from the start.
