  1. 3rd Quarter Collapse

    2019 Offseason Thread

    Haven’t watched the knicks other than when they play us, and I don’t remember Ntilikina much at all. Looking at stats, he looks like a marginally better MCW with a better shot (albeit, still well below average for his position) but a similar career AST/TO ratio, while being 7 years younger than MCW. I know he has the reputation of being a elite on ball defender, so you’re not losing much in the transition from MCW to Frank. I’d be fine if we made the trade since he presents upside and youth that MCW doesn’t have, while being better than Briscoe at a younger age as well, but there’s a fairly decent chance that he stays a offensively deficient guard that can defend.

    I mean, we traded for Fultz to give him the PG keys— he’s going to have to earn them, obviously, but we’re going to give him every opportunity to do so. Trading or signing a prominent point guard would be getting in the way of that, along with tying up cap space in a position where our long term starter is (hopefully) already in place with a relatively cheap contract in Fultz. We should go into the season with DJ/MCW/Fultz. I would consider bringing in a prominent point guard a mistake.

    I think almost everyone would be pleased if Vuc wasn’t here, and most would be fine with Birch leaving as long as we got a Javale McGee type player to replace him. Pretty good news if this is true

    Not to push my guy too heavily, but Porter Jr. is a shooter who can get his own shot off the dribble. He’s not a perfect fit for our team philosophy, but his ability to defend 2’s and 3’s make him interesting enough to pull the trigger, and he seems to have the athletic tools to improve on defense

    I think he’ll do good providing spacing and playmaking against second units where he’ll be less of a sieve defensively. We need what Fultz and Bamba bring defensively— once they turn the corner, the skies the limit defensively

    For as bad as Vuc/Ross/Fournier have been, Isaac is up there for the most disappointing this series. Siakim has dominated the match up, and Isaac has been nothing but screens, rebounds and the odd three. Really needed him to do better this series

    Eh, two technicals show that we care, or at least the young guys care. It’s more about mismatches that Toronto has. Gasol>Vuc, Lowry>>>>>DJ, Siakim is dominating on switches onto Fournier, Kawhi is Kawhi.

    Looks like just a jammed finger. Doesn’t seem like something serious to me

    We’re on pace to give a 60 piece to Toronto in the 1st half. The turnaround has to happen on defense. The fact that those ball spikes are techs but Lowry is allowed to be a dick is funny

    And they were mostly wide open threes for us. Gotta tighten up on defense— we can’t give Toronto 33 a quarter and expect to win

    You’re able to operate offensively when you don’t let them get into the middle of the paint with options. MCW/Birch>>>>>DJ/Augustin. They’re just killing us with the Lowry/Gasol PnR

    Issue is that we don’t have the outside shooting to take advantage of their defense. Until we draw them out, we’re not going to have anything inside. DJ also being very bad defensively hurts. Can’t defend Lowry and doesn’t rotate to pick up open shooters. He was just ball watching on that last Siakim three. Gotta improve rotations in general

    Porter is consistently in that 12-20 range from mocks I’ve been reading. Thybulle is usually a low 1st, high 2nd guy but I’m a big enough fan of him to be supportive of him at 16. Porter’s my favorite prospect at 16– I think he’s got the highest ceiling of the SG prospects that would be available, and as the 10th man in a 9 man rotation (when totally healthy), he’ll have the time to work on his game without totally being thrown into the fire. Great offensive game with tools to be good defensively imo

    Porter Jr, NAW, Thybulle. Thybulle has the best defense and length, Porter Jr has the best offensive ability and potential, and NAW is a compromise between the two.

    Porter Jr., NAW and Matisse Thybulle are my top 3 right now, and probably in that order. All three have the combination of length, athleticism, defense, shooting to varying degrees
