Is this what I was saying, or is it just another shitty straw man?

You are constantly projecting on this board. You need to relax.

He hasnt even played 50 games dude. 38 total. Basically he is. And he’s producing despite all the distractions like corona etc.

Agreed not “entirely accurate” but you get it seems like. You cant compare him to second year guys who are 100 plus games into their careers.

re: Honest Zion talk for Emotional Intelligent Folks
Last night our front court got beaten down by journeymen. Adams makes almost 30M a year. Zion is a potential superstar. In 61 minutes, they combined for 24 points and 14 rebounds. Vanderbilt and Reid combined for 36 points and 15 rebounds in just 48 minutes. That is embarrassing. Sometimes it really is that simple. We can't win losing match ups.

Some dude named Jarrod Vanderbilt put up 16 and 11 mostly being guarded by Zion.

It was definitely not his best defensive game. Lots of standing around too, losing his man flat footed while the dude cuts to the basket. Standing flat footed looking up at a rebound while Vanderbilt was going to get it, effort stuff.

Watching Vanderbilt reminded me, where is Gabriel? We could use another 4 in the rotation if Melli is sitting.

SFP used to Knight for Westbrook, & thought Eric fricking Gordon had a brighter future than Steph Curry.

He shouldn’t be taken seriously.

It’s not that you were wrong, it’s that you were off base and still defended it.

GOATbrook was always very clearly the weak link in OKC.

Lol, agreed. Thats a pretty eggregious mis-call. I hate Westbrook.

Agreed. Zion’s better though. Better stats in less minutes and better PER.

I feel like this thread is old enough that we should have the ability to downvote it again.

Props to Bronc and ATL for actually actually having some decent perspective early on in this thread.

Time to come by and eat some crow BronzeFoxx. This awful thread really should earn you a downgrade to your username lol.
