Not exactly good company to be in.

I mean, they literally had to create a rule because the Cavs owner kept trading first round picks. One of those led to Worthy being drafted by the Lakers.

Exactly.

 

What's most dissapointing about Wiggins to me is just how meh he's been as a defender, and his regression with his playmaking. He's mostly been a tunnel of creation for his own offense which is fine right now, but as their core grows you would hope that Wiggins becomes more than just someone who catches and tries to score for himself only and doesn't really play defense. 

 

Luckily however, they have towns instead of wiggins as their future #1 option.

I will say I have been impressed by DeRozan's all around play this season. 23, 4 and 4 is nothing to sneeze at. I feel like he should be pulling down more boards, but the assist rate is nice to see.

Hoping the Bulls put Cavs down tonight in the most embarrassing manner.

Nah he's been putting it down this season. That is Nothing to sneeze at and if this was prime Wiggins, you should be happy.

 

However, I don't know if wiggins can reach that peak alongside Towns. Towns appears to be the better player, and as their core develops, I think towns usage rate goes up while Wiggins goes down.

 

If wiggins isn't the primary offensive feature, then his lack of playmaking and shooting could be detrimental towards minny building like a top 10 offense or something.

 

But that's way down the line for them

Speaking of Towns: http://basketball.realgm.com/article/240521/The-World-Of-Possibilities-Of-Karl-Anthony-Towns

I didn't think we'd see another prospect as good as Anthony Davis for another seven or eight years, but then Towns comes along three years later. sick.gif

Approaching DBD status. sick.giflaugh.gif
I've heard about that guy, he had 9 SAS posts for every 0 anything else posts.

My ratio is like 1 OKC to every 27 anything else. 
No comparison.
Not yet.

'Approaching'.

And you're the one who made it about a ratio. That's only part of what I was thinking.

Both KAT and Wiggins are still only 20 years old.. Wiggins hasn't improved this year as much as we would have liked, but the kid is still very very young. He's got a lot of work to do with his handle and getting a consistent jumper among other things. He does get tunnel vision a lot when he gets the ball. I think that's what disappoints me more, his playmaking just isn't there. I would have at least liked to see him grab a lot more boards than he's currently pulling down. End of the day he is only 20 and has a long way to go.

 

KAT on the other hand.. 20 years old and has it all. I love everything about the kid. He plays hard every night, plays with a lot of emotion every night, this is the one we need to build everything around. Even this year.. he should have a lot more touches than he currently is getting.

I think Bron on Clippers would be good. Gets the point guard and coach he needs.

But GSW aren't going to be bad for a longtime so there's that

Players have to like and or respect you. That's probably more important than wins and losses especially with a team that's good enough to get to the playoffs with no coach at all. It's a player's league, period.

For real. What did Carlisle say? That this firing meant a great guy had a huge weight lifted off him?

Because he got fired for nothing. He did exactly what he was supposed to do with that team, and hardly any coach could have changed the outcome of the Finals or how this season has gone. He got fired cause LeBron doesnt like him.

If the best player doesn't respect you, that's not "nothing". Let's not act like he did anything special with that roster. You're not coaching theory or strategy, you're coaching players and therefore you need people skills. Without it you won't be an effective leader of men. Any idiot in this thread can say coach x needs to do y with team z. The game itself is simple enough. Getting players to buy in and actually do it is the hard part.

Svg bringing up mchale kills his whole argument.

But he isn't defending, and he isn't creating for anyone at all. (Partly a function of the team he plays for, however) For a guy who's usage rate is that high, you would think he would be able to pass and make a few more plays for others. 8% of Wiggins passes lead to assist. But again, that is partly a function of the team he plays for. Minny is 27th in the league in total passes per game.

 

Basically, Andrew Wiggins looks a lot like Demar Derozan to me. Which isn't bad, but it's hardly someone who you would crucify Lebron wanting Love over.

this is true. he pretty much does nothing but score so far.

I'm sure he is not respected because of Lebron ... I mean what's hard to understand?

 

If there was no Lebron, the players would respond ....
