Very impressive. Thought they would've been partying with Friday & Saturday night off in LA. I did not expect them to be ready for this game.

Maybe that atrocious home loss to the depleted Grizzlies woke them up.

Agree. If they can play like they did yesterday consistently, they might be able to compete with the Warriors. That said, I think how well they shot from 3 yesterday against the Clippers was probably an anomaly. Clippers were threatening to cut it to single digits early in the 3rd, then JR hit like 3 straight highly contested step back 3s. And from there it just snowballed and everyone on the Cavs started hitting everything they threw up, including Lebby who is only averaging one 3 make a game.

Doubt they can repeat that kind of performance often, but we'll see. They definitely took care of business yesterday.

Ben Simmons couldn't get LSU to the tournament. Not a good look at all. Still going number 1?

Yup. I can't see that being a huge detriment to his draft stock. It's just gonna be something to harp on for the casual observer.

Exactly. But there is going to be a narrative that will build in the coming weeks/months about why Brandon Ingram should go number 1.....when Ben is clearly the best prospect. Scouting fatigue. Need for new discussions. It's close though. Ingram is a very good prospect. But Ben has higher upside and likely will be the #1 pick.

True evaluators of talent know that Ben's Size/Skill/Athleticsim/IQ package are borderline generational. They'll hedge their bets that in time...he can become a consistent enough shooter to keep defenders honest...and a versatile defender.

And in this "positionless basketball" age....Ben fits in.

Ingram is going to pass Simmons like Towns passed Okafor last year.

Okay, I'm not serious. But it's worth considering.
post #71560 of 93193
His shooting is the one hang up for me, not only because he can't, but his aversion to even shoot it is a problem. But him not caring about college basketball when he went to an inferior program as a favour? Yeah that's not gonna kill his stock for me.

Not dissing his skills but it rubs me the wrong way that he couldn't lead his team with two other NBA prospects (not saying they are NBA players) in a power 5 conference to the tournament.

I don't care what you do with the ball if you aren't competitive. Again, not saying he isn't the top pick in the draft but dude is throwing his red flags on the field

I like Gary Payton Jr. Not at number 1 but as a effective NBA player. Just won his 2nd defensive player of the year award for his conference. Like father like son. Glove 2.

Byron either stupid or really committed to that tank. He plays the role very well cuz I can't tell which one is the truth.

 

1. He shoulda put in a defensive lineup after that NY timeout before the Calderon 3. No reason for Huertas to be on the floor in that situation.

 

2. Why draw up a play for a corner 3 with .2 left on the clock when the rules state you can only have an alley oop tip with that much time left? :lol

I think Byron comes back if the lakers strike out in free agency

The Lakers will fire or re-assign Byron, and present free agents with the idea of who do they want to play for.

Allowing primma donnas and unproven rookies have never turned out well. A coach should always command the respect of the players. Its the player that has to go, not the coach.

Unfortunately, it doesnt turn out that way in pro sports.

Peep LBJ and Cousins.

But it wouldn't have counted regardless of if it was made or not. At least throw the alley oop to nance or something and hope for contact and the foul.
