https://t.co/YqISrScIUl - in here, a fan wonders if Levy had fan like reaction to early struggles, ND says "thought occurred" to him. If, indeed, Levy tried to leverage bball decisions, I'm happy he's gone. Send him on the next flight to Mars.
Eric Gordon must appear in 500 reg. season minutes (he is at 265) or 750 (reg./playoffs) and the Rockets win the NBA Championship for his salary in 2023-24 of $20.9M to become fully guaranteed. Despite the recent knee injury, Gordon will still likely meet the minutes criteria.
This is a wild story - one told extremely well, as always, by @StevePoliti
excellent. 2 IMO #Nets Q's: 1: screens by smalls=effective. Should Nets use their smalls more as screeners, especially when they r their best players (thats what makes a PNR tough, talent) 2: switching rate when bigs screen=15%. Do Nets give up the G-C switch too easily in PNR?
lol! if a head is rolling for poor play it's a basketball guy.
Huge opportunity for Garrett Temple tonight as I suspect he gets the start. Jared Dudley was such an amazing vet for this roster. Produced. Worked hard. Pushed the kids. And looked damn good doing it. Can Temple become #MyVet ?
I got drunk at a Ruby Tuesday the evening after he was bought out
Here's the thing with Tsai and Levy. It's not that anyone cares who the CEO is. That's not the worry. The worry is if this quick split reflects Tsai being, Fertitta like in that he seems impossible to work with. Hopefully, that is not the case. But this kind of stinks on ice.
could see it having to do with how much LeVert dribbles, as opposed to a guy like Temple popping the 3 or keeping it moving when Kyrie creates a crease. Could be defensive issues with Caris. And could be noise.
I came across some interesting 5-man lineup data. It may or may not mean anything. Just figured it's worth sharing: Irving-LeVert-Harris-Prince-Allen yields a -0.6 net rating. ...sub in Temple for LeVert... Irving-Temple-Harris-Prince-Allen produces a +11.1 net-rating.
RT @KVanValkenburg: I don't want to dunk on the Northwestern J-students, in part because I think we need journalists now more than ever and punching down in his profession is extremely ****, but I do want to tell a story about why we call people who might not want to be contacted for stories.
