LMAO...... more PLEAS please.
Feb 26th 2019
5
When he gets rid of those bad habits he picked up last year
Feb 26th 2019
6
A #2 pick is better than a #27 pick?
Feb 26th 2019
7
A 19 year-old better than a 28 year-old? Yep
Feb 26th 2019
8
      So we’re going off age now?
Feb 26th 2019
9
      or PER...or per 36...or eye test...however you wanna do it.
Feb 26th 2019
11
           how old is Jabari?
Feb 26th 2019
12
                23 and was better than Kuz will ever be when he was 17
Feb 26th 2019
14
                     so was Lenny Cooke, who cares now?
Feb 26th 2019
15
                          no he wasn't
Feb 26th 2019
16
                               where are the clips of "better than PG" getting razzle-dazzled...
Feb 26th 2019
18
                                    no clips of BI fucking up a basic zone
Feb 26th 2019
19
      Its 21 vs 23 year old
Mar 01st 2019
68
           you come in the league at 22, you ancient...he 30 now
Mar 01st 2019

Laker fanatics telling me Kyle is the best player on their roster.
Feb 26th 2019
10
The Timberwolves are 1-0 since Ja Rule's Curse
Feb 26th 2019
13
Apparently he has now added Sacto to the list of cursed teams?
Feb 26th 2019
32
BI tracking to be better than all of them
Feb 26th 2019
17
i've long said BI is Duke's best prospect.
Feb 26th 2019
20
Tell us more.
Feb 26th 2019
21
It's simple. Just look at his trajectory compared to current elite wings...
Feb 26th 2019
22
      There’s a lack of patience, agreed, but each player has still develope...
Feb 26th 2019
28
      WHAT?!
Feb 26th 2019
31
      I mean...
Feb 26th 2019
33
           All the while having to constantly adjust to a new role
Feb 26th 2019
34
                what are BI's strengths?
Feb 26th 2019
37
                     Why are you ignoring the numbers?
Feb 26th 2019
38
                          Why move the comparison to age?
Feb 26th 2019
39
                               I see you didn’t read the 3rd season comparisons.
Feb 26th 2019
44
                                    3rd season = no playoffs, Wiggins is his comp.
Feb 27th 2019
50
                                         I accept your apology. I’d change subjects too.
Feb 27th 2019
51
                                         Because you're not comparing apples to apples
Feb 27th 2019
53
                                         Wiggins BETTER lol
Feb 27th 2019
52
      nah but he shouldn't be expected to, it was evident his curve was steepe...
Feb 28th 2019
54
he's starting to break out and I'm grinning ear to ear..
Feb 26th 2019
29
And he just turned 21 a few months ago.
Feb 26th 2019
30
      Absolutely...and it's all been done under shifting roles + pressure
Feb 26th 2019
35
So why was Kuzma singled out?
Feb 26th 2019
23
Kuz is more 'LeSystem Ready'
Feb 26th 2019
24
You need to start watching BI right now instead of that false narrative
Feb 26th 2019
26
      Bullock was a quality trade
Feb 27th 2019
47
Because he's better and that makes certain people mad.
Feb 26th 2019
40
      Because you thought his 30 year old ass was and now you heated
Feb 26th 2019
42
a good loss for the Cavs. Tank On.
Feb 26th 2019
25

Feb 26th 2019

i think Andre Drummond just hit his prime
Feb 26th 2019
36
I can't put myself in the mindset
Feb 26th 2019
41
He'll leave again once ALL his agendas tank, never forget!
Feb 26th 2019
43
This is just a distraction from the fact that he can't argue
Mar 01st 2019
62
      like...hating on kuz as a whole personality wtf
Mar 01st 2019
75
Just think if Doncic and Bagley are both better picks than Ayton
Feb 27th 2019
45
Doncic for SURE. Bagley is likely.
Feb 27th 2019
46
Doncic definitely is... but we knew that
Feb 27th 2019
48
two big glaring holes IMO
Mar 01st 2019
74
I would have taken Doncic one no question. The rest, eh, TBD
Feb 28th 2019
55
oh, I see what this is... Kuzma was born in 1995...
Feb 27th 2019
49
He's already 70 for fuck's sakes
Feb 28th 2019
56
      Kuz birthers (c) OkaySports
Feb 28th 2019
57

Feb 28th 2019
59
      he old
Mar 01st 2019
67
Late first rounder.....Kuz is already a huge W for the Lakers
Feb 28th 2019
58

Feb 28th 2019

      That’s the thing we DON’T, only you do that because you’re MAD...

At the same point in their careers.

The Magic/Rob/Bron union fucked us out of the patience needed for these guys to grow. So that is what it is.

But BI is keeping pace with Kawhi, Gianniz, George, and Butler at the same point in their careers.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

Kuz is developing, BI is morphing into a star, Lonzo was morphing into a dominant two way team leader before the injury. Hart is the only one who’s truly been hurt by impatience because he did way too much over the summer and it led to his current knee problems.

Giannis is a stretch. But look at these other players at age 21 (22 for Jimmy).

Now look at their 3rd seasons: http://bkref.com/tiny/f7pml

It's not that far off.

In response to Reply # 33


  

          

Outside of KD, all those guys were allowed to play to their strengths and then develop the rest of their games. BI has constantly been pushed outside of his strengths, constantly been under the limelight, had his timeline sped up...and he's still responded with this type of growth curve.

His mentality and now his play are incredible, all things considered

39. "Why move the comparison to age?"
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

None of the dudes on the list are one and done

...somebody uptop already conceded Giannis before you jump in your feelings...but...but...

Jimmy didn't get minutes as a rookie, and came off the bench in his 2nd season

Kawhi...coming off the bench as a rookie

PG...coming off the bench as a rookie

...but let's compare them at the same age...

LOL, ya'll desperate

BTW, Kuz has more 30pt games this month than BI

Feels like just last week ya'll were escapegoating Bron for BI's struggles

He breaks 30...and now he's on a trajectory to be an MVP candidate

OkayPlayer.

In response to Reply # 51

Hmm...what's different about BI's 3rd season...I can't imagine, LOL

But to drill down more on my point about the start of the other players mentioned careers

Jimmy, PG, Kawhi, and yes, believe it or not, even Giannis, all started their careers for playoff teams

that is to say, they weren't immediately starters, and had to work their way into the lineups

Take PG for example

He sat behind Danny Grangier, until Grangier's injury

which makes his stats for his first 2 seasons less impressive statistically because they weren't given the same opportunity as BI

...so IRT to your 3rd season mountaintop, you're not comparing apples to apples...

3rd season comparison on BI and Wiggy

https://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/pcm_finder.fcgi?request=1&sum=0&player_id1_hint=Andrew+Wiggins&player_id1_select=Andrew+Wiggins&y1=2017&player_id1=wiggian01&idx=players&player_id2_hint=Brandon+Ingram&player_id2_select=Brandon+Ingram&y2=2019&player_id2=ingrabr01&idx=players

Anybody claiming Wiggy is on a trajectory to be an MVP candidate?

Wiggy's good for a 40pt game every now and again...but BI puts up a couple of 30pt games in year 3...and he's going to be better than...errybody?

FOH.

35. "Absolutely...and it's all been done under shifting roles + pressure"
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

He's obviously talented but what separates him from most young players is his mentality. He's so solely focused on the game, rarely rattled...it takes a very mentally strong player to deal with all the changing roles and limelight that he's had to deal with yet not only come out on top but take a top off the growth curve.

In response to Reply # 23


  

          

where as the strengths of BI aren't readily apparent in the same system.

BI has struggled mightily with all of the changes to boot, trying to find his spot. It could also be the Duke thing but "Duke" in 2019 is a very different thing from my youth. Duke is basically the "Lakers" of College BBall at this point

He struggled early on but now he’s finding his groove alongside LeBron (best 10 game stretch of his career). Both Kuz and BI are in fact. Those three and Bullock are carrying the team offensively

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

they fought down that huge deficit against Portland, but ultimately took the L.

again, Cedi is just shining with Kevin Love actually playing.

Sucks I gotta wait another year to see this team give a proper effort because I can see this team, while not a world beater, get back on track.

Hopefully when the tank's done we'll see a DeAaron Fox-type leap from Sexton.

Ayton to me isn't a bust. He's going to be an HQ NBA player but if the Suns don't fix their most glaring hole people it's gonna take longer for people to realize.

In response to Reply # 45


  

          

I thought Doncic was bar none the best prospect in the draft. From there I don't know if I could really call if Bagley was going to be better than Carter long term. Ayton has all the tools but let's face it few bigs have come out that young and been impact guys. Moses Malone, Dwight Howard and a very short list of others. I'm willing to give him some time. Young was another guy I liked a lot but so much has to do with how he's used at the NBA level. So far I think Atlanta is doing a surprisingly good job, all things considered

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
