    Yeah, and that sucks.

    ... because you expect that sort of player to meaningfully contribute in some way. The fact that the team isn't dependent on him and can tread water without him is moot. Are you arguing that it wouldn't be optimal to have him be a contributory player? Why does any team care if a high draft pick busts then?

    I would say it's a problem that our highly-touted 5th overall pick now has a bar of "slightly more impactful than laying down at midcourt" to describe his "success".

    I'm as patient as they come with player development and I get that he's still only 22. But this sort of rationalization is the problem. He was out of position most of the game (on both ends), has very little bball IQ, and continues to show an inability to handle the ball. We can't treat that sort of statline as any sort of success because: a) it's not a very good line to begin with, and b) he's deficient in so many other areas. It's like going to a restaurant you know is bad, having a terrible meal, and justifying it by saying, "well, I didn't get food poisoning this time!". That doesn't make it acceptable.

    Mario makes Jan Vesely look like Drazen Petrovic.

    Welp, didn't take long for Simmons to become my favorite.

    Sure, when he's driving. When he's standing still for a spot-up jumper or setting up the offense it's definitely in his field of vision at this point.

    I haven't been on the "Elf's hair is hampering his game" train thus far, but there's a picture I saw of him yesterday (which I now can't find) driving past Isaac and it looks absurd. Cartoonish.

    Yeah, after that OReb I couldn't help but feel it was a mistake to attack relatively quickly. LBJ ended up getting into the paint and had a nice dish to Love, but he ended up getting stripped which led to semi-transition for GSW. I would have to review the play but I would guess there was at least 10-12 sec remaining on the shot clock at the time of Love's shot attempt. Hard to say if it was right/wrong I guess since it was ultimately a bunny for Love. Magic-Lakers Game 4 is a game I will always remember for the ****ty/empty/defeated feeling I had afterwards. It was BRUTAL. But that game last night seems like it was objectively way worse. LeBron and Kyrie played like THAT and it still didn't matter.

    I'm not going to praise a former anti-vaxxer for eventually seeing the light. It was a ridiculous position in the first place. There are no bonus points for common sense.

    Here was your exact quote after someone listed a bunch of nonsense regarding how it is rigged: "I think it's pretty obvious. Don't know how one can think otherwise." You said this without realizing any of the details regarding how the draft lottery is performed. You had made up your mind that it must be rigged. Then, after being given the info that explains how rigging it would be impossible, I'm supposed to praise you for your "critical thinking" for being marginally less skeptical? You are truly a Socrates of our time. Sorry for doubting your thinking skills.

    Nah, just using caps for emphasis. Figured it would help push the idea through some tin foil hats being worn around here.
