[quote]Christian Clark @cclark3000 19m 3-pointers in a Pelicans uniform this season: - Wenyen Gabriel - 9 of 20 - Nicolo Melli - 7 of 37 - Jaxson Hayes - 6 of 11[/quote] The stretch bigs everybody wanted might be on the roster already. ...

re: Jaxson Hayes - TigerinATL
[quote]Do you keep him at 5 or hope he can improve his jump shot and try him at 4?[/quote] This question shouldn't be about Jaxson, but the rest of the roster. Unless you're playing a big team I don't see the advantage in Jaxson at PF instead of C. He can play it, but Johnson/Naji/Hart/NAW woul...

re: Where all the posting/scouting professionals on here. - TigerinATL
[quote]I would hope the FO isnt that short sighted.[/quote] The criticism of Jax was legit because he truly wasn't trying to be a good player. Griff said something changed after the New Year's break where he came back and was more committed in the weight room and film room. I'm sure the FO was ...

re: How have we gotten no new info on Zion? - TigerinATL
One of the things that Griff said in his presser is that they wouldn't know about it Zion didn't tell them, so could he play with it? Maybe, but Griff just spent $50,000 telling the league if they want Zion driving ratings then they need to officiate him more fairly. I think Griff was vague on p...

re: Griff fined 50k - TigerinATL
They shouldn’t become public figures, but they should have public grades. Prove that the errors that get marked against them in the last 2 minute report, and presumably throughout the game, matter....

re: Do we re-sign Josh Hart? - TigerinATL
[quote]I don't agree that Kira is a liability.[/quote] He is today. He has trouble staying in front of his man and uses his elite speed to catch up. When he figures out how to use his speed to stay in front of him the whole time, he'll be a good defender. He may never be super switchable, but ...

re: NAW Upgraded to Probable for Tomorrow - TigerinATL
The worst part of the NAW injury was the game before he got injured he finished the game instead of Bledsoe. I remember the post game pressers Stan making up an excuse saying "that's just the way things worked out, it wasn't about Bledsoe". I was hoping we were finally seeing Bledsoe get squeezed ...

re: Griff going hard at NBA officials, blames them for Zion's injury - TigerinATL
Bledsoe and Adams are where the season fell apart. Those were the steady vets that were supposed to lead the way. Bledsoe was supposed to be 80% of Jrue, by most advanced stat measures, he's about 50% worse than an average NBA player. Not an average starter, an average player. Adams just can't...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - TigerinATL
I'm not advocating for them to lose out and fall to 8. I'm saying stay at 7 where they are now (picking 20) and fall to 8 via the play in. I am kind of torn on the falling to 8 part. Losing to Steph and being in the Play In facing elimination will take some of the shine off the franchise. However,...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - TigerinATL
[quote]The 8th seed would have them around pick 16, the 5th seed would have them around pick 23-24. [/quote] Draft order is based on record, not playoff seed. Assuming things stay roughly where they are then they would be tied with the #4 seed in the East for records. That means half the playof...

re: PELS VS SIXERS: THE LONZO BALL SHOW - TigerinATL
If it’s not top 8 in 2021 it becomes 2022 unprotected. The odds of them winning the lottery from 14 are bad meaning they’ll likely keep the pick. I think we want the Lakers to lose to the Warriors and then win the 8 seed. Hopefully that keeps them around 20th in the draft like they are now and giv...

[quote]key game experience for the young players even if Z is out is more important than say getting the 8th pick vs the 12th.[/quote] We saw good minutes from Jax/Kira/Gabriel tonight and further confirmation that the current starting back court needs to go because Lonzo/Bledsoe earned the team ...

re: Griff going hard at NBA officials, blames them for Zion's injury - TigerinATL
Griff said that they only knew about it because Zion told them. I'm sure part of his motivation was protecting Zion, but I wonder if Zion could have kept playing and Griff saw this as an opportunity to do what he did. People are happy about this, but I don't think people get just how big this play...

re: Griff going hard at NBA officials, blames them for Zion's injury - TigerinATL
I'd also say doing this after an injury to a player so popular the Pels got 30 national TV games probably gets ESPN/Turner interested in the issue and asking Silver if they have any plans to fix it. If Griff does this a week ago after the Denver game where an under .500 stays under .500, nobody car...
