    Kerr has been emphasizing for weeks now that Warriors have been building really bad habits this season and he's pretty pissed about it.

    Tonight, he gave Andre Iguodala the clipboard during timeouts and he told all of the assistant coaches to stand aside and let them coach each other so that they can stay focused on mistakes and stay engaged.

    Either that or Kerr is being a lazy fuck or is high (he tokes for his chronic spinal pain).

    I'd love for LaMelo to sit behind Steph for a couple years :superhiro

    We all know Lonzo for Klay is going to eventually happen anyways.

    The Jazz are so fun to watch. Definitely my favourite team to watch this season behind the new look Raptors (they were obviously my favourite to watch last season). They probably have more of my favourite players than any other team, even with Hill, Hayward, and Johnson leaving. Still have Sefolosha, Ingles, Favors, Rubio, and I like Gobert and was talking about Mitchell very early in the season before he started blowing up as well. O'Neale has had some good performances too.

    Snyder keeps improving. He has been my favourite coach for a couple seasons now, but he is really upping his in-game adjustments, which were mediocre in the past. The call to have Favors in there with the Ingles p&r killing SA, and Favors stepping up his defence without Gobert. He was dropping back in the p&r nicely and stopping inside passing and contesting drives, and Utah plays a really aggressive style but more intelligently than any other team, really allowed for Ingles and Mitchell to get into passing lanes easier without getting burned.

    Really unique defence by Utah, and offensively Favors on the short roll and offensive glass made the difference. Snyder really has trust and flexibility despite the structure of his schemes with his players; these guys have so much respect for him. O'Neale is becoming a player, great defensive performance by him, and him and Snyder having that moment was cool. Stevens and Spoelstra have been the class of the league as far as coaching for a couple seasons now, but Snyder if he continues to improve his in-game adjustments is going to reach them or not be too far off. His preparation is already better than almost everyone.

    Another nice showing by Crowder as well .

    Oh touché. Probably because of potential and exposure but I'm def wrong and you're def right on this. He's gone invisible in the major rankings I've been following after signing with his agent which is why I was ignorant to it.

    Klay is a free agent in 2019 so why even make a trade? He's the Lakers next target after Lebron and PG13.

    Kerr is overrated. The team is better with Brown coaching in-game, imo. Kerr did well to implement the offensive schemes they use as well as rotations that Jackson did not go for at all, but his in-game adjustments are mediocre, from play-calling to fighting right line-up usages. He is stubborn with his system as well, especially when it is getting shut down, and he keeps using the same misdirection and off-ball screens sets over and over, instead of keeping it simple and attacking clear mismatches or going to different plays like Brown. It feels sometimes watching them he would rather lose with them using the schemes he brought in than win going for more basic and obvious plays.

    He has a lowkey big ego as well, tries too hard to be Popovich or Jackson just because he was coached by both and tries to reign in some influence.

    Lol if Payton ends up a story like Oladipo. Very much doubt he is going to ever play Top-10ish ball (can see him being at least decent though, maybe even better if he cuts his hair), but after trashing on what Memphis have done recently, you see another poorly run organization like Orlando. The team management has always been awful, but what a sorry franchise.

    These guys turned Oladipo, Tobias Harris, Domas, and Payton into Terrence Ross, a Top-20 protected 2020 1st round pick, and a 2nd round pick.

    :mjlol

    Watching the Suns feels like watching an NCAA team after seeing Jazz-Spurs :kobeha

    This is like one of the 2 or 3 games where the Warriors looked like their dominant selves without Bell (Green missed this game too). He makes such a significant impact for them, been their 5th or 6th best player this season depending on how you see West (and he outplayed Green and Thompson in quite a few games, tbh, as inconsistent as he has been). Pretty impressive for a rookie on an ATG team. People have said it all season, but this is really shaping up to be a historic rookie class.

    What's even worse is that they traded Saric, a first round pick and a second round pick for Payton. And all they got out of that was a second round pick. That front office is like bizarro Danny Ainge.

    Its funny that the Orlando FO is somehow massively dumber than the past one... which was fired for tweeting a picture of their own draftboard among other things.

    the third was considered to be the most talented but he had some terrible injury or a disease (I can't remember) in high school so he never got to play

    The third Manning brother is actually the oldest one and he found out he had a spinal injury that had to end his career right before he started college.

    Tristan Thompson's contract became instantly poisonous as soon as he signed the dotted line.
