  1. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Depends on whether we are tanking or not. I tend to think yes. If Payton has a career game (hoping revenge/payback is on his and his teammates mind) and Suns beat us and then we lose to the Brooklyn Cavaliers (that loss is a must if we have any brains), then if Bulls still at 24 wins we tank that one. At Hawks should be an easy loss and at Knicks too. Will still be battling Memphis and Suns so close 0-5 and we are top 3, probably top 2. That is a plan. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

    What is hard to believe is that these two so called "analysts" think that if a team is playing young players 40 minute per game they are doing it to develop them. Wrong!. They may be doing it to tank! They may be doing it so their veterans who have minor injuries are not at risk to make that a major injury. These teams have no reason to risk anything. After the Cuban fine and the weasel Silver's letter/threat on tanking all honesty is gone. What do they think teams would say and do. Oh, and, by the way, Hezonja's growth, this year, by getting minutes, blows their argument out of the water.

    We will see. If we lose to Phoenix on Saturday and the Brooklyn Cavaliers (we should roll over that night for sure) on the 28th no way we go 3-3. That would also prove we are tanking.
  4. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    Agreed but playing against the team who traded you sparks motivation. We can help him achieve that goal!!! lol!!!
  5. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    That's OK. With our help on Saturday night Payton can have a career night against us leading his Suns to an impressive win getting us one win, or loss if you wish, closer to 2nd. Just dreaming again!
  6. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    No worry's. If we go 0-11, we play them once and the tie is broken. Just dreaming!

    ?4theWin gave us the stats which are pretty close. One difference not in the stats is Bamba's 7'9" wingspan vs Jackson's 7'4"wingspan (I think?) So Jackson has to stand on a 5 inch stool to reach where Bamba does. lol! I saw Nevada players as they drove to the lane definitely altering shots due to Bamba's presence. But I think Jackson is more athletic, more agile. One thing I did notice about Bamba against Nevada is how hard he was working down low; was constantly in motion. Both derserve consideration and analysis if we pick at 4. Beauty will be in the eyes of the beholder in that instance.

    While I will admit JJJ did not have an eye catching freshman year, more than some have been enamored with him. In fact almost "all" have been enamored by him, "all" being NBA scouts and mock projection experts this entire year. Vonley was a late lottery pick when he first declared and shot up some boards on individual workouts. JJJ has been in the 3-5 range all year long because of his skill set that MSU did not utilize to it's fullest potential. Rim protector extradinoaire, 3 point range, can handle the ball and drive, good first step, good FT shooter. If we are at #4 and Doncic, Ayton, and Bagley are gone it is a no brainer that the pick should be JJJ or Bamba (and Bamba only if his workout is outstanding). If we get JJJ frontcourt of JJJ, Gordon, and Isaac would be something special!!!

    Philly has 2 first and 4 second round picks. Philly will trade if it gives them a better chance at LeBron. First round pick takes away salary cap space. We will more than happy to help them do that if they give us that #11 or #12 pick. lol! Depends who is on the board at that pick but I would be inquiring at the very least. If Sexton is there and he may be I would try. Worked once with Payton which did not pan out, why not try again?
  10. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    That is good but I would love to get aggressivve and go after another late lottery, mid1st round pick---Philly's 11th or Clippers 12th or 14th to try to get SGA of Ky. or Sexton of Alabama and pick up a PG.

    Not intended to be about math. Intended for philosophy. I want a chance at the best player. If we go 0-12 it forces the other teams to lose. At the worst we stay 4th in the lottery but at the best we get the #1 lottery poisiton. We have the easiest schedule of all the remaining lottery teams so it is unlikely. Only possible if we go 0-12.

    Hope that is the message from management and Frank knows his job is on the line not to follow management. Would love to go 0-12 to end this season and make Atlanta go 1-11 (have to beat us us), Phoenix go 1-10 (have to beat us) and Memphis to go 1-11. That would be the ultimate tankfest and have more drama than watching the teams at the top. Would drive that weasel Silver batty!!!!

    I will be shocked if JJJ does not come out. I did not see the game today but his stats for the year are 22 minutes per game/11.2 pts./game/53% shooting/40% three point shooting/80% Free throw shooting--did I say 80% free throw shooting/3.1 blocks/game/6 rebounds per game. So a top 5 NBA player only gets 22 out of 40 minutes/game? I watched a few MSU games this year and i can only blame Izzo and the coaches for not getting him more involved. I would take JJJ or Bagley since I think both are better, from a skill set perspective, than anybody on our roster. JJJ's game more suited to pro ball. As with all rookies it will take a year or two. JJJ probably a better fit since I see his potential at center more than Bagley's but Bagley is a special player!! Hope we get a chance at either one.

    Who you cheering for tomorrow night. Bulls play the Knicks Knicks have one more win so I am a Bulls fan. Memphis playing Brooklyn Cavaliers. I am rooting for the Brooklyn Cavs to win so the Cavs get a worse pick!!!
  15. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I have seen that all year. Gotta blame Izzo. How do you play a top 5 pick only 15 minutes as he did in the game today. I noticed that all year long. I think Izzo did JJJ a disservice. Myabe he knew he was one and done and played and developed other players. Baffling!!!
