    So what’s everyone’s guess for final margin of victory? I say the Pels keep it within 15-17.

    Zion getting zero touches in a stretch of like, 3 mins. Fireable offense. Getting tired of Ingram's schtick too, terrible decision maker.

    Yes, this is one of the reasons I want the Pels to be a sustainable winner. Teams like the Celtics, Lakers, etc. get the benefit of the calls....

    What might be Zion's worst half all season, combine with usual poor decision making from Bledsoe, Redick shooting like garbage again, Ingram being off, and Hernangomez going 2/8 from the field combine for ugly basketball.

    Yikes.
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Brandon Boston Jr endorser.

    Eye test people: analytics people watch more basketball than you do.

    We'll either pull it back in the third just to have it slip away late, or we'll get clobbered hard enough that it's a full garbage time game for 6 or 7 minutes at the end where the score will end up being closer than the game actually was just cause of backup v backup lineups.

    Zion's going to destroy guys like Triston when that outside J is at least decent. It's only a matter of time. I'm actually okay with him taking 3's when they leave him that wide open.

    I'd also like Ingram to work on passing "ON TARGET"... He will often make the right read, with the pass off target.

    ...and of course there's that bum, Lonzo, huh?

    and even if it shouldn't, that doesn't mean you shouldn't even let him touch the ball for huge spans of time. If you have a guy with such massive gravity out there on the floor, use him, even if only as a decoy in plays for other people.

    Ingram is 4 for 9.. I wouldn't characterize that as off. Though it's not a high percentage.

    Absolutely agree on Zion: some games, I'd actually like him taking more of them. There are those games where he's 8/10 from the floor, shoots a three and swishes it, and then the next play down he's got a wide open three and he just hesitates. I'd like him to just take those sometimes.

    My question is, why hasn't Stan realized this yet? I know he's trying to ease Zion into a playmaking role but there has to be some middle ground between that and Zion not getting touches and Ingram doing... whatever the hell he's doing. This is embarrassing.

    Yeah, I think we should trade both Ingram and Lonzo, huh?

    He started the game 1 of 5, I think. It was a cold cold cold start.

    Max player has max expectations. I don't know if we have a guy right now that the offense can successfully run through. Zion makes questionable decisions when double teamed as well.

    My name is not Sam Hell. You want to crush Ingram and turn a blind eye to Zion. That says all we need to know about your perspective

    Zion is 20 years old and has been used in a ballhandling capacity for about 13 games. I'd be shocked speechless if he didn't make questionable decisions sometimes, especially since more often than not he's triple teamed rather than doubled. I don't think he's going to be the full-time ballhandler for 36 minutes at his peak, but let's simmer down a bit on ''we don't have the guy'' talk at this point there lmao

    Yeah, I see what's going on. I see Ingram doing a terrible job of being the primary offensive engine. What, you think that means I want Ingram traded or something? No, I don't. Stop being so protective of a player who absolutely doesn't deserve it. Jesus christ.
