When I was 17, my father was so stupid, I didn't want to be seen with him in public. When I was 24, I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in just 7 years.

Between this and the comments about Vogel yesterday, I don't think Jason Hart wants to be there any more.

He probably wasn't purposely dissing Frank Vogel (his "45 year old guy telling him about analytics" was pretty generic media criticism in context) although he is pretty unhappy for sure. It sounds a lot like he thought they were going to turn the franchise over to him the way they did in summer league (maybe they told him that?) and just in general is not happy about being a roleplayer. Which sucks but I don't know what the answer is, and it's not like he lit it up when the Ingram and Lonzo were out and the Lakers second scorer spot was up for grabs. I just think in general the Lakers well was super poisoned by last year's experience, but hey throw a bunch of bad locker room guys on a team and then publicly fail to trade them all for AD and that's to be expected.

Lol I thought the same thing

I had a vision about the Kings. It might be far off, but if I donít put it down and it ends up coming true, Iíll be devastated.

They commit to playing Bagley at the 4 and Giles (who is the next Jokic level passing big man, so you know) as the backup center. Cauley-Stein walks (maybe the Sixers pick him up as backup C but comedy option there is Noel). Sign Vucevic to a big ol contract to play 30 mins a game, and unfortunately Barnes opts out and re-signs for more.

Now theyíre looking at Fox-buddy-barnes-Bagley-vuc, with Bogdan son of Bogdan, Giles, and Bjelica coming off the bench. With Bogie running the offense, we need a nominal pg/bench gunner. (Re)Enter Isaiah Thomas at near the minimum. Maybe we keep Yogi on, but Frank Mason is gone. Thatís as far as Iíve gotten, I think. Mind you, itís not what I want to happen, but itís where my mind wandered.

Jason Hart chat

Yeah, I think he overestimates himself a bit (fwiw I really liked him as a player year before last) and that knee injury is super no bueno for his long term career.

Life, friends, is boring

quote:

It looks like the Rockets are making a number of changes to Mike DíAntoniís staff, even beyond the exit of Jeff Bzdelik. The Houston Chronicleís Jonathan Feigen reports that on Friday assistant coaches Roy Rogers and Mitch Vanya, video coordinator John Cho, and player development assistant (and James Hardenís trainer) Irv Roland were told they wonít be back either.

Do they want to get rid of DĎAntoni? Firing his staff is not subtle.

Welcome Bucks fans. I did not expect your team to lose so I have not even been thinking of anything to say here, but keep Brook Lopez and the future is bright.

It's not deep pockets, they have no bird rights on Lopez. They either need to get creative or Lopez needs to take a pay cut next season.

I honestly feel like unless they have a Very Great free agent knocking on their door the Lakers would probably be better off overpaying for Brook Lopez than most of the dudes out there.

They picked up a ton of roleplayers who never got an off-season, you have to figure guys like Mirotic will gel much better next year (if they can keep him)

Yeah totally agree. If they can just roll the entire squad back I'd do that, but with Lopez they'll need some help to get him back (and I think he's really important).
