I looked at Trey the other day and he was shooting 45% from both two and three so his shot issue appears to be solved. He’s still pretty much a non factor as a playmaker though. I would agree with you that he seems like the least likely of them all to end up being a contributor into his veteran years.


#234

Maybe it’s not such good news for THJ (who’s been playing well lately)…i hope Van Gundy sends a couple 2nd rounders for him, he’d be a great backup for KCP


#235

Why are the Hawks unloading? They’re in 4th place. (thought there were rumors about moving Millsap as well)


#236

Doesn’t make much sense to me, although I swear I read an article on the ringer last week saying that they should sell the entire team and now here we are. Someone’s gonna get a steal with Millsap


#237

17, 5 and 4 for Caris tonight in 24 minutes


#238

19* in 27* minutes :slight_smile:

edit: found highlights -


#239

Caris looks like the real deal.


#240

Always thought caris would be the best pro of the group. With Mitch actually. I still think if Mitch would take things seriously and stop smoking weed he could become a solid big. Really wasting his talent.

Either way I told friends caris was a great pick for the nets. In that draft he was a steal. Nice pro game too with his ability to break players down one on one. Nets had a nice value pick the year before too in McCullough. Got two great values late from injuries.


#241

I had no idea he came back so long ago. First I’ve really heard about it. I’m going to watch net haves more now. I get yes network in ny. Awesome


#242

Agreed. He looks strong and confident.


#243

Wow. Caris looks great in that video.


#244

Caris had the best pro-skill set of any of that class. Was never a question of ability, just gotta see if his foot can hold up over 82 games


#245

For sure. I always liked him more than nik but dsmn they were a good combo.

How did we lose to Louisville again? Six pros to what their one? So lucky.


#246

Bad officiating and let’s face it, we got punked in the 2nd half. When talent is relatively equal, motor beats skill almost every time.


#247

We outplayed Louisville by 8-12 points, even with Burke on the bench for so long. To my grave: We won.


#248

If you’re suggesting that we got outworked, that’s not true. I agree on the refs. There was the block call on Trey, but there were several obvious fouls by Louisville that were not called.


#249

I’m not suggesting anything, Bohannen flat out bullied us in the second half, period.


#250

Hancock catching fire at the end of the 1st half was a killer too. The lead went from 12 to 1 in a heartbeat. We maintain a nice lead going into the 2nd half and I think we pull it out.


#251

Burke’s foul trouble hurt. That, and Louisville was the #1 overall seed for a reason. We had more NBA talent, they were a much more experienced and tougher team. And Pitino is a top 5 (if not better) coach.


#252

I also think the Kevin Ware injury helped Louisville a lot. They played the entire tournament with a lot of heart because they were playing for him.
