[quote]It's impossible to determine how any player fits with Zion[/quote] No, it's not. I guarantee you that an elite outside shooter fits well with Zion. I also guarantee you that a post scorer who doesn't create for others is not a good fit....

NAW Upgraded to Probable for Tomorrow - GOP_Tiger
NAW's status has been upgraded to probable for tomorrow game against Charlotte. Adams is questionable and BI is doubtful. I'm excited about seeing more of NAW. I want him to prove that he deserves to be a starter next season....

re: Now that the season is over.. - GOP_Tiger
[quote]The problem with defense, especially nowadays with all the social media and all the offensive plays getting the highlights, is that's all the young guys seem to care about. They want to win, but they don't want to do the little things it takes to win, like play hard on defense night in and ni...

[quote]I like BI but if we had a shot at siakam I’d send BI to the raptors, think siakam brings scoring and defense.[/quote] You've said this in other threads. I can't imagine why you think that Siakam would be a good fit with Zion. Honestly, if I were trying to think of a high-profile player w...

re: Playoff Picture/Ping-Pong Balls Thread - GOP_Tiger
The Lakers loss last night puts them into 7th place in the West and into the play-in slot. They are now a game behind the Blazers and two games behind the Mavs in the fight to stay out of the play-in, and crucially, last night's loss meant that the Blazers will have the tiebreaker over the Lakers. ...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - GOP_Tiger
I disagree. We want the wheels wobbling now so that they will fall off next season. We want the Lakers to have to overpay this summer for crappy free agents, because everyone will see that this is a team on the decline. I am rooting hard for every Lakers loss....

[quote]He does talk too much though... [/quote] Maybe in the abstract, but not on this team -- we need more emotion on the court. I loved that Lonzo got involved in some trash talk with Draymond the other night. This team is normally so stoic....

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - GOP_Tiger
The only three guys who had a positive +/- for us: Kira, Jaxson, and Gabriel, and they weren't on the floor at the end. I'm not a SVG-hater, but this is one of the things that frustrates me....

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - GOP_Tiger
And the 11-0 run that we just went on wasn't just Jaxson: it was Kira and Jaxson. This season, Jaxson at center has an overall point differential of -3.3 points per 100 possessions. But when Kira is on the floor, there's a positive 2.2-point differential. Kira has the speed on the pick and ro...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - GOP_Tiger
Jaxson is just showing off out there: a turnaround jump hook, a pull-up midrange, and naturally, the dunks. He's a future starter in this league. [Edit: and then the block] ...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - GOP_Tiger
Embiid is going to foul out Billy and Jaxson. The only way that we don't end up with a little guy guarding him by the end of the game is if the Sixers blow us out faster than Embiid fouls Billy and Jaxson out....
