Mo Bamba just isn't for me. I hoped for so long. And, credit where credit is due, he's been a lot better this season than previous years but he's still not what I think a starting center looks like. He has like a 10 foot standing reach and guards still score over him, his hands aren't great, he's slow laterally, he can't dribble or pass. He's basically if Channing Frye blocked more shots. I honestly hope he proves me wrong but I don't really want to pay him 10+ mil a season to find out if he can.

no one in MGMT listens..... every off season every F****in one of us says we need "SHOOTERS" - not chuckers. I'm not knocking cole or anyone. However we need a high 30's consistent 3 point shooter. Franz may be that guy in the future. Obviously not at the moment, but hopefully in the future.

And we have the dumbest turnovers.

This is like Mo's second real year playing.  Let's see how he develops this year.  I mean we did throw a boat load of cash at Bismack Biyombo....That guy had terrible hands, shot, and awareness.

Dejounte Murray should be who Jalen Suggs looks at. Plays defense, rebounds, makes plays for others, takes 3s when he's open but otherwise gets his offense at the rim and jn the midrange.

Making a terrible mistake in the past under a different front office has no bearing on what we should do in the present and future.

You wait the season out with Bamba. Plenty of bigs in this years draft lottery means we can easily decide to not match if he gets an offer. Personally I would let him go. Doesn't bring what you need from a modern center for me, has no mobility or athleticism. I legit don't think he's capable of jumping most times I watch. His screens are shocking as well.

Was a frustating game tonight though. We had numerous chances to close up and missed repeated good looks over and over again.

Yeah, one of our biggest issues on offense right now is that Mo literally gets a point guard switched on to him multiple times a game and is never able to take advantage

Terrence has either really bought in to this be a playmaker thing or he is being overly passive to make a point. Over the last 5 games his field goal attempts are 2, 6, 3, 5, 7. That’s not his game.

It feels like Ross does this at least once a season. He has some god awful shooting games where he's selfish, presumably is called out by his coaches, then has a string of incredibly passive games where he makes the 'right play' over and over but doesn't really create many good looks.
