Dont follow college bball too much...is there a 1 overall pick lock coming ala like lebron was, zion, ad,...who gonna be 1st ovr

 

I haven't seen anything about there being one but remember, this time last year Zion wasn't the no brainer #1.  Most places has RJ Barrett as the top prospect going into the season.  Anthony Davis wasn't the top guy going into his season either, a lot of places had either Austin Rivers, Andre Drummond, Harrison Barnes, or MKG as the number one, of all people.  The consensus that Davis should be #1 actually took a surprisingly long time to form.  A lot of people thought he couldn't score and that he was too skinny and that what he did wouldn't translate that well to the NBA.

 

Draftniks don't really know anything for sure at this point.

The one thing that sucks is that all of the top guys in the mocks right now except for Wiseman are like 6-5 and under.  Really hope that changes.  Don't want to spend a high lotto pick on a third guard.

how did we end up with a stretch of 5 days off so early in the season?

 

You know we're going to pay for it later.

The NBA knew y'all needed a break to let reality set in. Reality being Beal should be traded. 😉

they have 5 days off for "load management"

 

stupidest **** i ever heard of in my life. fans paid hundreds to see you play and you  just wanna take a day off?

 

Imagine the angst should Beal take a day off because of load management. Don't talk to any of us working class proles about load management. I call my boss ask for tomorrow off due to load management and I get laughed out the ****ing door. ****ing dumb.

Yeah I actually agree here. If you're healthy you play. This is why I respect guys from the 90s like Jordan, Barkley etc. There was on load management BS. The fans pay their hard earned money to watch you play, you play.

Beal looking like he could easily get 40+ tonight

 

Wagner is better defensively than Bryant. I don't like feeling bad for professional athletes, but thats how I feel watching Isaiah attempt to play defense

I still can't believe in less than 2 years we went from Buck and Phil to these JV announcers!

Drew Gooden has mentioned multiple times that playing so much zone is giving Boston problems

 

Boston has a 112pts with just under 10 minutes to play in the 4th

Could hardly watch the game.

 

Celtics just standing on the perimeter wide open, catch and shoot, uncontested.

I know results ultimately don't matter, but I do worry about the younger guys developing bad habits on defense

We all knew the defense would be bad but watching just what that looks like during the games is hard.  I predicted the wizards would win less than 30 games, and I’m starting to wonder if that was optimistic.

I've taken"Mental Health Days" knowing even if they dont know why it's worth it. I'm pretty sure that's not what's going on with these players.

My dad was over last night talking how he saw something's he liked. Fair, then I walked up to the screen and pointed to the 140 points we allowed.  It's impossible to win in this league allowing that many points a game, how many they win is almost a side note seeing this in action.

 

I agreed with him it felt good we didnt jus lie down and die. That look on Beals face at the end of the game said it all, frustration giving it what you got.  I've seen that look before.
