    Disagree. We are at our worst point. Do you read yourself or Roscoe or that racist homophobic cousin to Justin James? I guess you are mostly fine because 90% percent of it is actually intelligent and honest BUT the things that get said because we can hide behind a curtain have become extreme and vile.

    That's very true yeah. I'm admittedly very ashamed of what I post here when intoxicated...but things have definitely gotten worse.

    I think trolling culture on the internet too has taken a hard turn from posting fake Rockets news to being a complete *******.

    Lol, nice! I had thought Tari would go before #17 and started hoping we would get Jalen WIlliams. I was excited about his shooting/playmaking potential and length being ideal for us as SF. He was gobbled up at #12 and our good fortune let Tari fall into our laps.

    Tari just looks like a DISRUPTOR! Someone that will come in and be a spark on both O/D. I hope we start Tate initially at 3 and bring Eason off the bench to be that ignitor. Also should allow him to get use to the NBA in a role he's use to. If he adapts quickly maybe he's starting at some point in the season, but Silas loves Tate and having his pseudo vet presence in the lineup will be comforting to him. I'm assuming Gordon is traded before the season, but if he's not bringing him in with Tari as the 6th/7th men would truly give us a nice lift from the bench.

    I don’t understand why foul trouble should keep Eason on the bench, same as Sengun last year. Why not play them 20-25 mins and let them foul out. It’s better than playing ten minutes and then sitting on the bench with three or four fouls so you won’t foul out

    To be fair, as long as nobody commits infanticide, the risk of SIDS is near zero.

    That is uh, not how that works.

    We need tags for conspiracy theorists, people that don't understand statistics, and one issue people (like Harden haters).

    They might. It's hard to tell what the intent is this year. Can't be putting teams in the penalty early and expect to win games. But if it's another year of experimentation then I could see them just throwing Eason out there and letting him figure it out.

    I'm using Sengun as the go by because Silas seemed determined to keep his ass on the bench for foul trouble.

    Maybe a Gerald Wallace 2.0 situation.

    Or Thaddeus Young 2.0.

    I've heard the Crash comps as well, Eason has the better shooting touch and free throws as an indicator for future shooting than Gerald had coming into the league. So I can understand the 2.0 comps also.

    Still think the kid has a very high upside, work ethic, and intangibles so far.

    Very nice comp not as thick as Wallace but they do a lot of the same things.

    Would not be surprised if gets some 1st team all rookie play.
