    I don't think any one has pointed it out yet, but even Sloan held his own out there. This bench is awesome. Larry Bird is amazing.
    I like the way that the bench played with Sloan. You could tell he was a bit nervous by the way he mishandled the ball a few times. So Lance and OJ did most of the offense initiation. That was really great to see. I like the way Sloan plays honestly. He looks to be a decent pick up for your 3rd point.

    I think two of the biggest things that look different to me are Paul and Lance. They just seem so much more natural having the ball in their hands and setting up the offense. I know I wish we had a real point guard sometimes, but it's nice having two players on the wing with the play making ability of both of them. They both have great court vision but are still learning when to make certain passes.

    If the Cavs keep sucking at drafting, I don't see how Kyrie stays. Tristan is solid, but I get the pick, there wasn't really anyone else. Taking Waiters was a huge mistake as well as Bennett. haha No wonder LeBron left.
    They could have picked Valanciunas instead of Thompson or Drummond instead of Waiters. Their lack of a good big man hurts a lot.

    Well Kyrie has no choice in the matter. He will be in Cleveland for the next 6-7 years, just like Lebron had no choice, just like Paul George had no choice.

    I'm not sure Waiters was mistake, he is a soild young 2, and will get better. But I'm not seeing much drop off from Waiters to a Oladepo. If anything Oladepo is a much better defender so the case could be that it would have been smarter to draft him #1. . But they went out and got Jack who can play the 1 and 2. But Bennett looks like a bust so far.
    You can't get champagne from a garden hose.

    They needed a center, so might as well have drafted noels.

    I have to give Ian credit. He's given us some quality backup minutes this season.
    yes, he has. i have been critical of him before but, he has really been productive thus far. getting rebs. and doing a good job of protecting the rim. hope he can keep it up.
    the rest of the bench has also been giving a boost where as in years past, you just hoped the bench could keep it close enough for the starters to make a comeback.

    How in the world did Lance win player of the game merely going up against backups...

    A little late to the party here, but I really like having the polls on these threads this year. Good on ya Trophy. I was torn between Lance and PG for player of the game, but for me it came down to two things. We are basically expecting this kind of play from Paul, and if Lance can stay consistant he'll not only be the most improved player this year, but an All Star. Second point is PG's damn turnovers!!! It's amazing to see him grabbing all the boards, but (here begins the beating of the dead horse) he has to get those turnovers down. What a great start to the season!!!

    If Roy could catch Lance's simple behind the back pass we would see a lot more highlights this year. Oh well.
    Roy can make that catch if it expects it.

    What's great about development of Stephenson/bench (hopefully continued) is that there really is no wrong move to make with DG33. Start DG33? Lance will murder the other team's bench, and you can still treat DG's minutes with great care as you can bring Stephenson off the bench early if need be since he's fully capable of playing with starters. Start Stephenson? Similar results we're seeing now, plus I don't think this bench puts sole pressure on DG to be THE scorer (though certainly will need to work his way into being A scorer).

    People act like it's a major problem, figuring this out. And yeah, I'm sure there will be some amount of mistakes/adjustments that need be made. But I look at it as a case where there's really no wrong move to make. They're afforded a ton of flexibility to tweak minutes/lineups as they see fit, and will have the luxury of being able to do so on an opponent-by-opponent basis as well.
    That's a very good point. I have wrote too many posts about the whole Danny vs Lance debate because I believe that some people really let their dislike for Danny cloud their judgement but having too many good players and too many options is certainly a good problem to have.

    Roy Hibbers opponents are average FG% near the rim is at a astonishing 22%

    David West foes? 38%

    and Ian's 34% that is some elite rim protection baby.

    Thompson is very good. I believe that Val can be a stud but TT was a good pick.

    If you want to compare Lance to the greatest 6th men in history, I won't stop you....or if you think he's Manu Ginobili...at one time a top 5 or 10 player in the league...cool. Also, as long as Lance finishes. That's far more important than who gets wheeled out at the start of the game.

    I am surprised to see Orlando so high. While he has been playing good defense, I didn't realize it was that good.

    Cool that they're all on there, but that'll obviously change. I don't think Melo, Love, Rubio, or Prigioni are good defenders.

    I have made pretty clear that I do consider Lance a Manu Ginobili-type of player and that I also want him to finish games.

    What's up with that "wheeled out" comment, though?

    Tell that to Stephen Curry, Damian Lilard and Tony Parker. Kyrie is just having a tough few games, he will be back on track.
    Are you suggesting Parker isn't an insane athlete? He's probably been the fastest player in the NBA for a decade and no one ever acknowledges it. Curry has his jumper which helps a ton.

    The jury is still very much out on Lillard.

    My point here is not to say Kyrie is bad, I like him a lot, but the guy was universally ranked in the top 10 on just about every player ranking this year and I don't think he's top 10 at all.
