    I have been watching Dipos individual highlighted games last season

    He can really play, and was aggressive, does remind me off a "poor man's Dwayne Wade"

    Domantas Sabonis, who progressively became worse during the 2016-17 season.
    What in the absolute f*** is that writer talking about? Oh, you mean the 20 year old rookie saw his production taper off over the long NBA season? SHOCKING!

    I'm not even making excuses just to feel better about the deal; this is just a stupid point, period. Rookie wall is a term, it wasn't just invented by Trump the other day. People say it for good reason. Hell, he probably has a sophomore slump in him too. Then he should hit that year 3-5 ramp when a guy starts to get it and just keeps increasing to his final steady-state level. When Sabonis is 25-27 and gets worse year after year, then we can talk about a trajectory.

    I just hate stupid logic so much. There's plenty of legit concerns and hopes to debate, why does someone have to bring in some rogue garbage into the mix.


    Did you hear - Sabonis also was getting taller every day and then suddenly he just stopped. So I guess that also means he's a failure because I would never expect that to happen either.

    Well shoot, I didn't get as far as the author details before going off.
    It doesn't improve the quality of the work, but it does explain it. Aspiring journalist have to try, fail and learn, I get that.

    Hopefully he got some feedback on the issues with his content, presented maybe a bit less harsh than I put it.


    On the other hand "well, the world needs ditch diggers too" :-)

    For a young man in only his second year of college, I thought he did a good job. I don't really agree with it and it is a pure opinion piece with no personal sources, but I've seen a lot worse written by experienced journalists.

    Absolutely. Bird is 100% to blame for PG's decision to move on. He is the one that failed to build a team around him after he broke his leg and he is the one who alienated him in the first place with his moronic comments (and the way he treated the members of our ECF runs, both players and coaches).

    Thankfully, Bird no longer makes any decisions around here. Bird did a lot of damage to the franchise in his last few years so let's hope that Pritch can fix them.
    This, so much.

    Unlike, according to the author, aspiring NBA starters.

    He's never going to improve now. He is what he is. Like a second-year center is defined by his stats in his second year - well, defined by a highly negative view of his stats.

    Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...
