The worst part about the Mavs sucking right now is that there are people who have been waiting for 2 and a half years to say poo poo about Luka but haven't had a chance to and now they're all coming out of the woodwork.

Smug rear end warriors fans talking about how "Luka needs to learn how to share the ball or he'll never win." Hawks/Kings/Suns fans mad about getting clowned on for the draft. Morons who never thought Luka would do well because he's a slow Euro like Rashad Phillips. And just in general anyone who reflexively hates on anything people are hyping up.

All gunning for a guy who averages 27/9/9.

He's having some trouble getting to the line and (eye test)I think his defense is maybe worse (and it was pretty bad) but yeah he's otherwise having the exact same year as last year.

Zing has been pretty bad when playing and they look like they got absolutely jobbed on that Josh Richardson trade (and I really liked that trade for both sides). I think they'll look a lot better when Kleiber gets back though.

I've just started watching Person of Interest for the first time, and I am constantly reminded of Kyle Korver by the main guy Jim Caviezel at certain angles, it's weird.

Did Korver retire? Or is he waiting to be picked up down the line by a contender?

I think he signed to the Bucks or someone. Kyle Korver now also oddly looks like his face just froze at someone point. Itís weird.

Yeah, the driving lanes aren't as open this year because he's playing a bunch of time with WCS at center and the team - even without his shots included - are at like 33% from 3. Only Tim Hardaway has really had shooting success, and he's either on or off on any given night.

edit: Luka's shot profile has changed a little bit, a fewer less shots at rim (and he's shooting worse there), about 10% less 3s, and he's shooting more mid-range... at a pretty high level. I imagine that will drop but they look pretty good when he takes them.

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.

I have always been on the record that Luka has never been great at basketball between the second half of January until June and so far, for various reasons, I have yet to have this ridiculous statement proven wrong.

This is good!


The other thing that made kyle...not good, but less of a disaster on that end than his rep and shows up here is that he is low key very big even by nba wing standards he probably would have played a ton of 4 if he'd entered the league like 10 years later than he did.

Thatís fair. Boban has earned his stuff that makes him awesome.

Iíve just gotten the impression from most people that Poku is super tall and it seems like...thatís about it.

So perhaps Tako or Boi Boi is a more apt comparison. It just seems like he has a cult following for being super tall.

Aside from his 3 point shooting, Luka's biggest problem is bbiq stuff like passing to wide open James Johnson instead of something more productive, like committing an offensive foul or kicking the ball into the gulf of Mexico

Really there are small things he can clean up but he's been terrific and if the mavs hit the open threes instead of missing them none of this would be a point of discussion. It's annoying to check box scores on my phone but I think it's been three weeks since the mavs shot 35% from deep in a game, something like that, it's a ludicrous cold spell, even for a poor shooting team

Shumpert has been a good defender here and there but he has a hard time staying consistent with it. I guess as pickups go that's probably one of the better ones unless some people we don't expect get bought out in a month or two.

I was really excited to see him on the Kings two years ago but he couldnít hit a drat shot to save his life after a decent first month or two. I guess his defense was probably fine but it was the Kings. I donít think he helped Houston at all on that front but you kind of had to have to be able to hit a shot for them, and you donít need to on the Nets. I was mainly excited because cool hair + cool name and he hasnít had his cool hair in a while. Heís at least an upgrade on the perimeter D and wonít mind eating poo poo for Kyrieís/Hardenís mistakes.

The worst part about the Mavs sucking right now is all of you bitching about it because you thought heíd be an MVP in his 3rd season and that KP would magically be healthy. Nobody in this thread has ever once talked poo poo on Luka. I try not to think about him at all because it makes me not want to watch Kings basketball. This is not the place for a pity party because your 21 year old phenom is asked to do too much
