Anybody need a center that shoots under 50% at the rim, 33% from 3, and can't defend?

Buddy Hield is shooting 37%/36% but heís trying on defense so we arenít giving a discount

The Nuggets have been slightly better than the 76ers so make sure to keep this up when their records normalize.

Edit: How many games are we playing?

Ok.

If Jokic can get Denver into a top seed I can see sliding him into Tier 3.

Sorry my brain was thinking Tier 1c which is think how I had the first draft of the rankings (when I was taking a walk earlier last week): Tier 1a , 1b, 1c. So one tier with 3 levels . I then changed it late to tiers 1,2,3 so as not to confuse people but then o confused my self lol

Yeah so Iíd have Zach and Jokic as Tier 3 (1c) if their teams were good (ie deserving consideration for MVP)

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 am hoping everything is a swerve and the Lakers are signing Korver instead of Cousins but I dunno maybe Jason Kiddís offense is so whack that maybe Cousins doing a bad AD impression will allow them to score more than 35 points a half.

I think getting Schroeder back will help alot, since right now the second best creator in the starting lineup is Kuz and bless his heart, he is trying to create and I wish he wouldn't

Strawberry Panda posted:

He used to be abysmal but honestly Boylen got him playing reasonably ok and its carried into this season.

jackofarcades posted:

I can't imagine the Mavs could get back enough value to really justify sending him off, he still has really high upside. Even if they could get off his salary and they could guarantee they'd sign their target(s) in FA, you'd be looking at like... John Collins and Lonzo Ball?

I think the spirit of what you're saying is good, but I also think Lonzo would look real good on Dallas. Perimeter D, running in transition with Luka but not having to shoulder a ton of half-court playmaking and can be more off-ball. That's not a crazy fit.

tbf at the College level Boylen's defense would probably be pretty good.

as you probably don't have very many guards/wings who are capable of dealing with hyper aggression and blitzing.

Honestly, he was an abyssmal coach overall but last season the Bulls team was playing better defense than you'd expect from their roster. If he managed to not completely sabotage himself and immediately lose his locker room he'd have been fine. But, you know. He didn't.

Maybe I have Boylen Derangement Syndrome but I feel like even his defense was just a gimmick that had ok results because it was atypical for the league / teams weren't taking the Bulls seriously. I have too many memories of games where a team would figure out how to easily exploit the hard blitzing action around the third quarter and pull away while the Bulls made no adjustments

Hair theory is about hair being in the way of the natural shooting motion. It can be as long as you like, it just has to be pulled away from the forehead. Cole has usually kept his hair pulled tight away from his forehead.

His defense worked well against poor offensive teams last season but was obliterated by good offensive teams because they could exploit the over-aggression.
