[quote]It’s kind of close to it[/quote] Pels leaked BI-WG squabble in the OKC series. Some on this board purport BI didn't want to run Borrego's offense. Poster ErikGorden summed it up well. Just doesn't hold water, not a big thing just poster dribble. ...
[quote]I am searching for one sportswriter that posted B dislike JB offensive scheme.[/quote] You're not going to find anyone, just more internet made-up nonsense to fit some folks' narrative. It never made sense and the team didn't markedly improve either after the change in focus. It is and al...
[quote]Wait, you think this team is best with BI as the #1 option and Zion 2?[/quote] Clearly CJ was the #1 option by his FGA ....:lol: #1 Job of the primary facilitator is to get the ball to your top scorers. BI and Zion are scorers for sure, however neither have been able to hold up physicall...

[quote]DEI hire. Fills quota. Makes league office happy[/quote] What makes you believe this beside thats what you believe?...
[quote]being a borderline all star wing with the Pels[/quote] For sure, but the problem is really availability isn't it? Pels pressed to pay a max to anyone who misses that many games ... like a Jimmy Butler discussion. BI set a selfless basketball culture and that's what would be missed. Whole...

Vinson is a good shooting coach. Most of his stuff is on catch and shoot that'll help shooting averages. He's proved he can do that. I haven't seen any video of him coaching, off the dribble 3 ball, which is what this team has needed. Maybe that's an either you have it or don't thing. ...
[quote]Hating BI is crazy[/quote] Its like clowns corner around here sometimes....
Rest easy Jerry West. Great player, scout, coach, and executive. Sweet stop and pop jumper....
[quote]I think this is a sweep [/quote] That's bold. I just don't see it though. Mavs got the shots they wanted just couldn't finish. I do think that Mavs will need a third player to score to balance their attack. I'm a lifelong Celtics hater, so I don't concede anything to them. ...
I don’t know Dink, maybe so, but Mavs got any shot they wanted, just didn’t make them. KP helped the Celtics to a great start on both ends. Kyrie took his lumps from the leprechauns but he can be a slow starter. Jaden Ivy is good, shout out to the G League....
My bad, I did. To your point I think your 1,2, and 3 are in terms of impactful at high competitive moments, and availability....
[quote]If Trey can develop into that 2[/quote] I don’t understand when TM3 has been a 2 most of his career here. He really started playing more frontcourt when team decided Zion is wing/point. TM3 played a ton of 4, and although not a paint protector, held his own in the scheme and became a very...

[quote]I mean if they were this amazing player that did everything right- teams wouldn’t want to trade them. [/quote] That’s funny ...
Be careful what you wish for. Pels were ahead of Mavs majority of the year. Mavs picked up players that filled roles that they needed (Gafford and Washington). Pels sat on their hands. Simple as that....

[quote]Bi is not some AD level player that can dictate where he is going[/quote] Doesn’t have to be. He’s what the market says he Is (generating quite a bit interest currently), moreso than Trae, and can signal who he’d sign an extension with. Trading partners will offer up a buy or rental pric...
