    Hey look, I know! It's the best thing that's happened to this franchise for so long. Just was hoping for a minor piece shake up. Maybe I'm just bored :(

    Bracing myself for Lonnie Walker trade scenarios cropping up on fb *groooooooooooan* As for our team, I don't know whether to start getting slightly impatient or not. I guess when we hired a GM nicknamed "Trader John" I was excited for some big unexpected surprises...

    Bugger I forgot about Sacramento. Absolutely. What on earth is Bagley doing right now?!?!

    I still don't understand this either, the only team that should really be kicking themselves about Luka is Phoenix. Atlanta didn't exactly get a complete dud, but whatever made Phoenix think they couldn't use someone like Doncic is beyond me.

    Evan has been better for us this year than Beal has been for the Wizards

    I don't understand the attraction for Beal

    It's the most logical conclusion to the whole thing isn't it really, neither is going to suddenly play 35 mins a game. Even if he is a bit hard-headed in-game he clearly had the sense to see that Fultz needed to start, so I trust he'll make the right call. But again, for better or worse you've gotta stick with it and not give up on the rotation you've set after 5 minutes. I don't know if this is over the top but I personally like a lot of structure, not so much a given structure but an agreeable framework that everyone can exist in. I imagine a fair few players like that sort of thing too and the coaches obviously. Hard to analyse if there is too much "winging it". Not everyone thrives on the chaos like a Dion Waiters or an Allen Iverson etc. etc.

    I give up, there is a lack of comprehension here. I'm not even hot on Bamba right now, so I effectively do not care enough to continue.

    Can't we all be patient with all of these guys who still remember how being a teenager feels.

    Here is another useful link https://www.dictionary.com/browse/hyperbole?s=t Just because someone says something in opposition to your thoughts (i.e. Mo Bamba is the second coming of Chris Duhon), it doesn't mean they think the EXTREME OPPOSITE is true (i.e. Mo Bamba is ready for starter's minutes and is going to be Shaq). So much middle ground. Also, suggesting that just because he was the 6th pick he should be a semblance of whatever he will be as a finished product is unfair. He was and is incredibly young, everyone mentioned he would be a project pick and how many young rookies absolutely suck. Do you remember Giannis' rookie year? None of the things people loved were at all perfect then. How about Devin Booker. It took til basically this year for me to say "ok he's growing into a real + at least on the offensive end" - instead of a bottomless pit of chucking shots to add to the non-existent d

    This is exactly what hyperbole is. It's not all one or all the other.

    Not to mention that Dipo isn't wildly different or that much better than when he left... just more mature, experienced and definitely more hyped.

    I feel sorry for Bradley Beal, but eh... who cares? Let's win! Of course I REALLY am worried about playing down to the competition.
