This team will be fine whenever Zion comes back; all of these losses are wins or dead even games if you add in even his below average nightly production. It can be very good if Griff can find a real 6th man and support to prop up the bench; I feel like maybe even NAW might be best suited to that in a Jordan Clarkson/Lou Will type role. His bag is deep but his shot selection is not "Starter on an NBA playoff hopeful team" level rn, but with our bench's lack of production his tendency to chuck up bad shots wouldn't be as detrimental. BI looks and sounds like he wants to be "the guy" and he closed this game out tonight like one. Absolutely fukking criminal he's gotten literally only 1-2 freethrows over 4 whole games. :stopitslime: I figured with the new rules this season teams/players who weren't foul baiters were supposed to be rewarded; instead the league using them as an excuse to fukk us over even more. :unimpressed: Oh and I'm mostly okay with Willie's coaching so far (starting Herb Jones of all players was something I'd never expect, especially this early)... but I swear if Garrett Temple is gonna be his own "savvy veteran" love affair like Bledshyt was for Van Goondy... :scust::snoop::dead:

I didn't like that last play, I know it was 8 seconds, but, BI ran into two other defender. So, if he beat his man, he'd be shooting up some bullshyt

We gotta hold these early big leads

Prob with moral victories is they don't mean shyt in April lol.

Can't let this franchise coast off the "yeah we didn't make the playoffs but boy did we play hard all season!" BS any longer.

With that said, this team has no real choice but to be average to outright bad until Zion gets back.
