    Every team needs an 'enforcer'; he could well be ours. However, I think at this point in his career he is a mercenary and will likely follow the money. Hope I'm wrong.
    Disclaimer: I would never denigrate or defame Zion Williamson as a man or as a basketball player; he will go down as an NBA great and perhaps a Top 10+ player of all time. Any inference derived from any of my posts to the contrary is your mischaracterization of my words, or a sign of insecurity on your part (perhaps both).

    Dodged a bullet by not trading for Victor Oladipo . Stinks for him he is injured again.

I wouldnt get too excited about last night. That was a good matchup. We didnt improve our defense, we just ran into another team that thinks its the 90s

    so posters can give stan credit for adjusting........on a side note..jax at the 4 has been going on for the last 3 games and i like it...imo he is a better rim protector at the 4....

    Jax has been fantastic for a good few games now. Even pre-dating the heavy minutes at the 4 by a bit.
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Corey Kispert endorser.

    Still a small sample size but he is showing signs of being a versatile and effective defender with a real ability to switch on to perimeter players and stay engaged. Could be power forward is a more natural position for him at pro level. Pleasant surprise.

    These are really great stats!! I guess Griff should get some props for that draft and SVG for the development!!

    I never understood forcing an undersized center to be mismatch against vet centers in the 1st place. My original thought for Hayes was let him grow as a bench PF/ small ball C and transition him to center when he's done developing his weight and strength.

    I remember reading an article talking about how worthless Gentry was for development with his 45 minute practices and never teaching anything. He run his offense and that's all he cared about. Which is great for a vet team but we aren't a vet team to operate in such a lax environment to succeed.

    SVG comes in and has to build a foundation with a lot of young players that don't know how to win in the NBA. I get SVG attitude during the early season where he seem more concerned with development than result of games. He had to turn a daycare environment into a real basketball team.

    No coach is perfect. SVG's game management needs a good team to hide it. In his whole coaching career, SVG has never been know as a savient development coach. We drafted some really good young men with great work ethic that wants to be coach. SVG is really thriving with the young guys. I've been pleasantly surprised with SVG in-house coaching and very happy with development and progress with a lot of our young players.

    Apparently you didn't get the memo. In here, SVG gets credit for nothing.

    SVG does deserve to get criticize for poorly managing games, but he also deserve praise for developing our young guys and getting the team as a whole improve like at rebounding for instant... Still One or two rights doesn't absolve him of all his faults. It's about being straightforward and objective with his performance as a coach in his 1st year. There is good and bad. Right now... The good clearly outweigh the bad. Winning game is technically the end all to success in the NBA.

    Surely he could not blow tomorrow’s game. Then again we lost to the T-Wolves twice(Blowout losses). Let that sink in

    We did loose some games because of SVG but right now winning even though important isn’t the most important thing. The development is and he should get credit for it

    Nope. It is Fred Vinson that is doing the work. He will be a HC one day.

    What’s next you going to say SVG is some sort of defensive guru?

    His tweets are good for the most part. Love the avatar.

    Guy posts something and immediately gets slammed for his coaching.

    It's true, once you have a job you have to delete your Twitter account, cause when you make a Twitter you sign a non-compete claused contract and it demands 40 hours a week of your time. It's definitely not some random thing you can do in 20 seconds.

    If you have a job you must resign any and all personal or political opinions and keep them to yourself.

    Heard ''shut up and dribble'' Stan? Time to ''shut up and coach''.
