    (Triple post, this is how I got to 10k posts, talking to myself lol) The Thunder have waived Aleksej Pokusevski. I had that guy unreasonably high on my 2020 draft board lol

    There's a good 10+ mins on Orlando and Paolo in the latest Dunker Spot podcast. Good stuff.

    I was about to push back on Paolo a little because he was so not himself that for the first half I don't think he even attempted a layup. But then I remembered the 3 point play he had chalked off for a completely normal basketball play so the point still stands. Franz always gets a bad whistle, should be averaging as many FTs as Paolo really, the way he hunts paint touches.

    Great win going to Cleveland on the road. The bench were awesome. Mo Wagner was phenomenal. Cole was great, especially in the second half. Isaac did the usual Isaac things. AB was very good on defense and had some great passing moments. Gary Harris was low key very good too. Had some big moments on defense. Ingles hit big shots. Fun game for the non stars all around honestly. When Scott Foster called that offensive foul on Paolo I thought the fix was in but he called some just as bad ones our way so I'll take it. Paolo shouldn't have played I don't think. He didn't look well. He played like he had no idea where he was and I think having him in the game did us more harm than good honestly. Hope Jalen is ok.

    "Role playing no names" like Penny Hardaway, Dennis Scott and Nick Anderson.

    Everyone is throwing out wild theories but... Occams razor. The real reason we're sitting him is because he has a knee issue.

    Anthony Black has changed his hair to braids. RIP the fear mongering.

    I guess my 10,000th post is thanking you for the kind words. Literally didn't know such a milestone was coming up and honestly I'm wondering how much time I've spent on this board to have posted 10k times and feeling very old all of a sudden (the crazy thing is for the 10k posts there's probably another 1k posts I got half way through typing and then thought "nah this is getting too long no one will read this" or "I'm just not getting into this argument again" lol). On the good and bad years, I actually joined this board the summer we traded Dwight. So the good years have been slim pickings haha. I'm looking forward to them now though.

    Yes. Jett is still getting paid his full salary. The two way guys (Queen, Harris, Schofield) make half a million a season. Exhibit 10 guys (guys who were with us for preseason and then went to the G league, so like Matt McClung etc) get a bonus that can be up to 75k from the Exhibit 10 contract and then their G league salary on top. The standard, I believe flat, G league salary is 40.5k for the 5 month season. Also worth noting a lot of G league guys could go overseas and make more money (the average euro league salary is like 400+k a year but some guys make legitimately more than an NBA minimum salary) but being in the US means they can be signed to 10 day contracts which could help them get full contracts and the real money. Plus there are obviously family/culture reasons to stay in the US. Long story short, no need to feel sorry for them.
