It'd have to be a pacey team for him to average that many. Wizards play a generally fast pace without a lot of complex half court offense.
Golden is even worse rebounding than we are. The downside of stocking up on all of those three point shooters.

John's offensive development has come along way faster than I expected. Unfortunately, his defensive development came along slower than expected.
Singleton is having a nice game.
The girl who got to play Wall in horse was cute. Looked like she can shoot better than I can.

Well we've just seen Blatche's dunk for the year.
At least we're pressuring their shooters behind the line now. Seems like it's started working.
Need to coral those long rebounds though.
GS just keeps drafting guards and big time project big men. They need to draft some productive big men that scrap.
BTW I've seen a lot of talk about GS wanting a center bad. I've also seen speculation they're not married to building around a Curry/Ellis back court.
Ellis seems like the odd man out.
I don't particularly want to trade for such a one dimensional player like Ellis, but what if it were Curry who was offered?
What would you all give up for Curry?

Well, we're going to lose our next four games.
Poor John Wall.
Unbelievable pair of shots by Curry. Goddammit.
This is a bit off the wall, but has anyone noticed a difference in Wall's demeanor the past few weeks?
He seems happier for one. But for another thing he seems... more commanding. He seems like he's growing comfortable with his stardom and really commands the floor well on offense now. I like his "mound presence" for lack of a better term.

Blatche might actually be a good fit for their offense and, sadly enough, he could probably be one of their best defensive bigs right now.
Well I was dead wrong about this game....Blatche was terrible, Crawford got an ice chest dumped on him before the game, and Lee didn't kill us like I thought he would.

God this **** hits fast. For those who don't know, I just got sent wisdom teeth out some I'm ****ed. And they have me some ambien cause of
Anyway. Bad mixes. Mind trips. Look at Zeke's and the Bad Boy Pistons. The should be our model? And we're. Far from kt. Goodnight
- The downside to Curry is he does seem to get hurt a lot.
- Only JaVale gets that foul called on him. Dwight and Griffin can take your head off with their elbows and you'll be called for the foul.
- It's sad how ill equipped GS is to deal with JaVale's length. It looked like rec league basketball on that free throw attempt from Vesely. The tall kid head and shoulders above everyone else, just standing in the middle of the swarm tipping the ball to himself and playing keep away.
- Vesely needs to devote this summer to learning to shoot free throws. It'll make him orders of magnitude more valuable as a finisher.

LOL GACOLB! Classic.
Did I just hear that right? Klay Thompson is 11th in the NBA in 3PT %?
Brandon Rush, Monta Ellis, Klay Thompson, Nate Robinson, Dorrell Wright. The Warriors do not need Steph Curry like we do, and we don't need JaVale like they do. Mutually beneficial trade.
Also, I might take back what I said about Udoh in trade. He's older, skinnier, and shorter than I thought. The wingspan is good but he's a markedly worse offensive player than McGee... not very good.
Ellis gets left off AS teams because he's stuck behind Kobe, Nash, Paul, Westbrook, and Parker/Ginobli, the Warriors suck, and he's a very weak defender.

Lakers, Blazers, Spurs, and Mavs up next guys. Prepare yourselves gentlemen. The next eight days are going to be rough.
EG has really built a mess of a team.
Vesley I knew was going to be a project, but Singleton has been a huge disappointment. The length that helped him in college seems to be entirely mitigated by the speed of the NBA game. On defense he moves like a pigeon, very rigid and awkward looking. On offense he's been worse than Vesely, which is really saying something. So far this draft class has contributed almost nothing.
Wow. Not a fan of Wittman's pressers. For some reason his "that's on me" coming from him sounds an awful lot like him actually throwing the team under the bus. He's not taking the weight for the loss when he talks like that. His combative tone with the media is also misplaced. He doesn't strike me as overly bright.
Hindsight is 20/20, but I seriously wonder how Kawhi Leonard would be doing in a Wizards uni instead of Vesely....granted Kawhi is in a MUCH different situation, but he was 10x more NBA-ready.
