    Counting on getting lucky is not my idea of a good way to build a team, especially when it means you’re sacrificing multiple seasons of potential development.

    2022 NBA Playoffs!

    So true. A real star is someone who makes everyone else on the floor with him better.

    Which Chuma are we talking about? Not the one who was absolutely awful offensively for us last year, shooting less than 38% overall? I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Chuma is out of the league in the next couple of years. He regressed this past year which is a bad sign.

    Lol. A robot LeBron that runs you over. Perfect. :)

    Isaac was not an All-Star prior to his injuries, unlike some of the others you mention. But we can always hope for the best. It’s just not a good strategy to assume it will work out that way.

    It’s fine to hope. I hope everything you said comes true also. I just don’t think you can assume anything about Isaac at this point.

    The other thing is that your defense can only reach a certain level when the offense is terrible because the missed shots and turnovers often mean the other team is coming at you before the defense can get set. Also, it’s hard to imagine Isaac will come back anywhere near where he was after two plus years out and very significant injuries. Maybe he will get back to something like it eventually; maybe he won’t. Definitely not something I would count on at this point.

    There’s that. Then, there’s also a difference between establishing great relationships with individual players and helping them develop, versus holding all the players accountable as a head coach. Frankly, I didn’t really see much of that in Mosley’s post game conferences. No matter how many mistakes were made or how bad a beating we took, it was all a learning experience which will help us get better in the future. Even if the goal last year wasn’t to win a lot of games , you should never portray that outwardly, because it sends the message to the players that you don’t care what they do. To me, jury is out on Mosley.

    Hoping against hope that this “bottom out to get good strategy”, which I’ve never agreed with, actually works this time. Failing that, hoping that if it doesn’t work again, they try something different next time.

    I’m not excited about the future of this team yet. I mean, yes, at some point in the future they’re likely to be better than they are now (extremely low bar), but I don’t see any signs of them becoming a serious contender for the foreseeable future.

    The top 3-5 could probably go in any order so there’s a chance we draft him no matter where we wind up.

    I don’t have a selection. I consider the whole thing to generally be a crap shoot. However, Holmgren just seems unusually risky to me.
  15. JJZFL

    2022 NBA Draft Thread

    It’s just too risky. He may turn out to be a superstar but he’s so far outside the norm for an NBA player that I don’t want to take the chance. Just too much of a gamble.

    2022 NBA Draft Thread

    I happen to agree with you. I don’t want Holmgren either

    I would take issue with the “Anthony was pushed into the role of the main scorer” comment in the above article. He sought out that role and often didn’t get his teammates involved nearly as much as he should have. He frequently over-dribbled before finally passing the ball when he did pass it. Better team ball coming from the guards needs to be a priority in the future. Of course it’s hard to get the players to focus on teamwork when they aren’t competitive. In that situation, the tendency is for players to see what statistics and notoriety they can generate for themselves.

    He gives our young players the confidence they can win and helps create the right mental framework. Could help enormously with the development of our young players. Right now losing is expected, there’s no accountability, and it’s all kind of a big joke.

    If you literally skewered him, I’m glad I wasn’t there. All that blood and stuff. Probably ruin my appetite too (unless I was really hungry).

    I can’t imagine anyone trading an all star for a return like that.

    Sorry. Total misunderstanding. I thought you were talking about Cole Anthony. You are right on target.

    Anthony? Really?? Admire the optimism but I sure don’t see it.

    2022 Off-season Thread

    100% agree. This business of him taking every shot so he could get hot once in awhile sucked all the oxygen out of everyone else who was on the floor.

    Hate (Actually I’ve never heard of Dyson Daniels but after your comment above I just couldn’t help myself :) )
