re: Time for a Full Rebuild - TigerinATL
[quote] I really believe that this tough medicine is what BI and Zion need. [/quote] I think if Stan were actually playing NAW/Kira there wouldn't be nearly as many screams. The Darren Collison/Marcus Thornton rookie season was one of the most fun on this board despite all of the losses, because...

re: Where can we trade JJ to get a 1st? - TigerinATL
[quote]a first from a contender is basically a useless 26-30 pick[/quote] People are pissed we didn't keep 24 so we could draft someone like Payton Pritchard (26) or Desmond Bane (30). There aren't gems every year, but a lot of times you can find solid bench players in that range. Take 2017 for...

re: Shams: Pels have received calls about JJ and Lonzo and are open to trading them - TigerinATL
Stan is doing exactly what he was brought in to do with the exception of not playing NAW/Kira enough. That is probably why it sounds like Lonzo/JJ and Bledsoe are all available. Stan didn't have any choice but to play Jaxson and he's grown to like him and Jaxson's gotten better as a player. Hopef...

[quote]Wonder if there's some issues going on in the locker room. Hart liked a tweet from Kendrick Perkins #freeJJRedick[/quote] I would imagine this road trip was both miserable and sobering and this team no longer has any delusions of grandeur. Freeing JJ is the right thing to do....

re: Isn't it funny? - TigerinATL
[quote]We have no young assets of value to trade away, like Brandon Clarke, or Dillon Brooks, or Desmond Bane, or Tyus Jones. Hayes and NAW don't hold the value those guys do. [/quote] I think Hayes' potential value goes to the value of centers in the league in general, which alone makes the pic...

re: The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor article on Pels disappointing start and future - TigerinATL
[quote] If the team is primarily future oriented then why trade the 2019 4th pick [/quote] You're saying that like they traded #4 for a young veteran. They thought they could get similar value at 8 while picking up the #17 pick too. It was definitely a future oriented move. It's rumored tha...

re: The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor article on Pels disappointing start and future - TigerinATL
I think you can argue Griff is happy with the outcome, but I don't think this was the plan. The plan was to be competitive and Zion and Ingram to be more...conducive to winning? It's really hard for me to blame Zion and Ingram when their teammates have been so unexpectedly bad, but as I mentioned ...

re: SVG calls out Zion and Ingram for defense and turnovers - TigerinATL
[quote]at what point do you just stop leaving dudes wide open[/quote] Look at the clips of what Zion is doing, he is ball watching hard most of the time on the missed and late rotations. He's not doing it because he's a moron, he's doing it because he's checking "do I need to help? do I need to ...

re: The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor article on Pels disappointing start and future - TigerinATL
[quote]well, we are off to a pretty good start in that regard.[/quote] It is disappointing that Ingram and Zion aren't carrying this team better, but I think it highlights how essential a lead guard is to success these days. We've slowed the pace to a crawl and are still talking about turnovers a...

re: The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor article on Pels disappointing start and future - TigerinATL
Good organizations have Ownership, Management and Coaching on the same page. In theory the Pels have that. They also have a shite ton of assets and a better foundation for success than any small market team has probably ever had. It would take almost willful incompetence to screw this up. One t...

re: SVG calls out Zion and Ingram for defense and turnovers - TigerinATL
[quote]I just don't understand why it is so hard lol.[/quote] It's about that cliched "the game slows down." Zach Lowe talked about this in regards to Myles Turner's development once. Turner told him that during his rookie season he was just flat out guessing at his reads and what he was suppos...

re: SVG calls out Zion and Ingram for defense and turnovers - TigerinATL
[quote]How does this happen to a pro that gives a shite about winning?[/quote] I'm not sure about your specific example, but there have been plenty of clips of Zion allowing back cuts recently and it's called ball watching. It's a dumb thing young players do, but it's not about not giving a shite....

re: Where can we trade JJ to get a 1st? - TigerinATL
I think people hear 1st and assign "average value". But there's a big difference between a lottery pick, a mid 1st and a late 1st. To some of these playoff teams keeping an eye on their payroll they'd rather turn those 1sts into either something more proven to be worth paying for, or something ung...

re: SVG calls out Zion and Ingram for defense and turnovers - TigerinATL
Shamit had an interesting thought on twitter, put Zion and Ingram on the top players on the other team and force them to defend better. Hiding them only lets them keep developing bad habits. It's definitely worth trying at this point....

SVG calls out Zion and Ingram for defense and turnovers - TigerinATL
[quote]“Listen,” Van Gundy said after his team’s 21-turnover performance, “the answer to these problems is your best players have to take responsibility to defend and play harder and to take care of the ball.” ...“I can go get other guys who would probably never turn the ball over but can’t go ge...

re: What team is Lonzo most likely destination and what do you think we could get in return? - TigerinATL
Because if they actually want him and he is about to be traded to another team that wants him, they won’t have a shot at him. It’s all tied up in the Knicks wanting him, but there has been a lot of smoke to suggest that they do....
