As good as Giannis is, he’s one of the dumbest and most selfish players in the league. Plays way too much hero ball even when triple or quadruple teamed. He and jrue holiday had so many boneheaded plays.
Lopez had 20 but their role players are limited tbf..idk why they didn’t add more in the offseason..relying on Ted Cruz :hhh:

Their biggest problems are Murray and Porter. They more or less have the role players for a title run but those two are albatross contracts right now. Murray doesn't look right at all and it's been 18 months since his injury. The Porter contract never made sense. I have no idea why they rushed to give him max money, especially when he's such a limited player before you consider his back problems.
Their offense is fine is fine, but it's more so their defense and lack of rim protection that's the issue. It's what Sacramento is going to run into once their offense starts to cool off. It's why I still think that teams are going to start calling about Myles Turner and Jakob Poeltl as a means to upgrade their rim protection.

In the case of MPJ, I don't get why they didn't put any injury protections in that deal like Orlando did with Issac. It was the Minnesota GM that initially gave him the max extension though, so we know that he likes to overpay when it comes to talent :russ:

They’re still missing Middleton and ingles. As much as people hate Allen he’s been solid as hell for them. He’s somehow got the best defensive rating in the nba, highest FT% in the nba, consistent 40+% 3 pt shooting. If anything, they need to get him more usage. He could easily average 15-18 ppg on near 50/40/90 with more volume.

So what’s the update on Cade? They said he might have a stress fracture but is that confirmed or not? How long until they figure out if he needs surgery or not?

He probably will. He throws his body at defenders and the ground for fouls. He’s too frail to last like that.

AI was even smaller and lasted a decade. Being lighter is going to benefit him. Rose was 20-30 pounds heavier and that extra weight in addition to the torque he played with is why he blew out his knee. Ja will be fine..
