    I could be completely wrong but didn't he also not realise it was fractured until training camp? Wouldn't that also set him back if he needed to have a small procedure if he was letting it heal while it was broken unevenly?

    How often would you guys say that when the lottery looks up in the air as it did and the dust settled that THIS many of the top picks have all been fairly impressive so far. I'd be happy if we had Ivey, Mathurin, anyone. I totally think Paolo looks the goods though. He's got the it.

    Ok, I'm game: Best offensive player will be? Banchero, and if he is not, we are back at the drawing board. Best defensive player will be? Splashiest might be Suggs and I'd love it if he got attention and recognition for it, but effectiveness-wise, I fully expect Carter to anchor our operation on that end. I'd hope that they can be exceptional within the next couple of years. Doubt either of them are ever DPOY candidates but this should be the answer regardless. We all know it'll be JI if he has any sliver of a chance at being in the NBA in 10 years. Team MVP will be? Not sure if this is in terms of play or culture, but if it's culture, I think Cole and Franz are the glue. Terms of play, Banchero is already the leader. Record will be? I'm going to throw caution to the wind for the first time in a dozen years and say 31-51

    Agreed, the take aways being that we have a squad full of guys who don't quit, which is what we always saw when they used to lose a late lead in the previous incarnation. Fall behind by a couple, lost confidence, boom 10 point loss.

    As much as this is all justified, at least with Kelle, Cole and Jalen around there is no reason for him to take ball handling duties. And I don't think they'd stand for the rubbish he pulled in SL

    Yeah the rationale is all fine, I am just honestly confused that the name hasn't run past me at all before. Or I've completely blanked it. 5 Star you say..

    Not sure he meant Arenas when we got him... just Arenas in his prime. A volume scorer with low IQ who put himself before the team. I'm pretty sure Mitchell is mentally better than Arenas (most people are), but in the sense that they aren't going to win you much on their own, it's sort of fair.

    I really thought the writing was on the wall for Ross when we kept Gary Harris and signed RoLo.. he must just be a great locker room guy.

    If it pans out, the one thing we have been waiting for since Dwight, or maybe even TMac if we want to talk true 1st option
