No love for Trey Burke.

He can now shoot threes so we should keep him.

From Yahoo: Mitchell Robinson returned to action on Wednesday October 17.

Doesn't mean much tho if he didn't get back in the game. We need to wait for an update

Robinson returned from an ankle sprain (preseason) and left with another ankle sprain. Vonleh did well though, so no rush.

No rush of course but the kid needs a lot of playing time to develop and refine his BB

Fun to watch! I liked THJ going to the basket when he had an opportunity. It's hard to be consistent relying only on long-range shooting. Kanter seems to be quicker than last year.

I had to remember Pack, he played with the Nuggets.

Definitely reminds me of Pack, too, from his explosiveness to the way he wears his socks.

I understand most want to see Ntili at the 1, but he looked hella comfortable at the 3.

Just now seeing your comment and I agree.

Dare I say he can now play basketball and not [over] think the game too much, like Nazr screamed all last season.

in much the same way that it's hard to peg draymond to a single portion due to his versatility, frank can play all 3 perimeter spots, even cover the 4 in a pinch. He just showed that he can make an impact, just keep him on the floor.

A shout out for Enes and Von, both with double-doubles and a cumulative +29. When's the last time that happened from our 5 spot?

Baker and Trier looked pretty good together, can build from this performance.

ThJ's handle looked much improved,or he is learning from Trier..

He also looks much stronger.

Still doesn't have a conscience...

Taowave, keeping THJ fresh is critical, and this year, with the addition of Trier, that's going to be easy. Like Mink said, I'm sitting here thinking how it's possible that THJ, Trier, Burke, Mario, not to mention kanter and Von, all had good offensive games? where did we find all these possessions?? the only player who looked tentative was Knox. When Fiz promoted Nilliki over Knox he won the team.

Knox really is giving me a Tim Thomas vibe...i was at the game and just watching his motor and mental approach live.

Mario while def a mess....i think he has just as much of a chance to be the 3 of our future as Knox is.

Tim looked good...didnt take as many heat check shots as normal which is great.

Frank...based on the box score..eh..but seeing him...jesus he was everywhere on defense....he caused so many turnovers even if he wasnt credited with a steal or w/e.

I really see him as a defensive anchor for us especially when you consider we dont have any rim protectors with KP/Mitch not being there.

most fun team we've had in a long time.

I thought he was at the 2 with THJ at the 3. It dont really matter, I mean between THJ and Frank. Both guards. But what made it good was defensively he could switch over and guard anything from the 1-3 and Burke at least for tonight was able to give Trae fits offensively.

Everyone just played a great game within themselves except Knox and I guess I must admit, itll take some time. He needs to work on his strength and flexibility and then I think his skills will refine

I really hate the Thomas comparison cuz
1-Tim was more talented
2- Tim was also lazy

Knox doesn't strike me as lazy, more so that hes unorganized in his movements. You say him drive quite a few times and not finish, he took some quick shots when he didn't need to. Hes actually alot more like Herzogna where he'll probably have near allstar nights followed by a few where he's just wild. He looks undisciplined and that's what's to be expected from a 19yr old. I'm just happy he isn't afraid to shoot and he did end up with 2 steals last night so again, I don't see him as the coaster that TT was, just immature in his skillset.

I can see that but just noticing his posture after plays.

and knox is a flud athlete on the floor...but not explosive vertically..he really is as effective as his jumper is.

in SL he came out on the attack...looked as if he was shooting from the ball of his feet...last couple games it looks flat.

and my issue is...i totally understand being 19 and being nervous..its a crazy thing to take on mentally...but if thats the case do other things on the floor to win games.

rebound/block shots/pass and when you have a chance you attack the rim.

but this is who he was in college...the SL games shows where he can go when dialed in....but college showed me what he can be when he's not.

lets see how he goes at the Nets since he's played them already.

Trier is dope but remember he's primarily an iso playa. This might work against us if we want team ball.

Good game, but the Hawks suck. So, don't be TOO happy.

We're going to suck balls all season. It's going to suck. brace yourselves for bags of misery and tears.

I love you all.
