Big wings are also either disappearing or becoming "Do this, and do this, and nothing else" role players

The skill floor for the NBA keeps rising, even if we have lost some of the art of the midrange and some of the post up.

Like 5 times a year Green is kind of an ideal 4/3 so yeah probably.

The importance of this mission cannot be overemphasized


Terrence Ross should be All-Flashes-of-Potential first team

i just found this thread cause i've been busy moving but i want to say this is horribly cursed

hayward back in utah means i can't root for mitchell and conley and jingles

gobert in boston means they run out a horrifying gobert/tatum/brown/smart/walker lineup and i just don't need to see any boston championships between now and 100 years after i die

Jeff Green would've probably got $20m a year after his rookie deal in today's NBA.

look man they were down 30 and I was lashing out and trying to create the most awful thing possible I don't feel good about it

E: PG on that team should be like Exum or Dennis Smith or something who the gently caress has ever looked at tyus jones and thought he was anything but an above average backup

All days are nights to see till I see thee; and nights bright days when dreams do show me thee.


Tyus has a really weirdly small but vocal fanbase who thinks he just needs the keys, I really don't get it.

I'd give one of the guard spots to Jordan Clarkson. KCP is perfectly decent role player who has just managed to make a ton of money by keep milking the Lakers everytime they woosh on a FA.

I think when he was on the pistons people were a lot more in on KCP as a potential franchise building block but now no one cares aside from Klutch jokes

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

There was definitely an expectation that he would be one of the Lakers best player when they first signed him, but he was so bad when he first got there that no one even cared when he had a good second half of the season.
