    Would love it. A wholly year boy, even you will have no idea why was holy.

    It is my bad sending you Mozart related clip. Should send some trash rap music containing clip to such a young "boy".

    (I hope you don't mind calling you "boy", it is reciprocity, you call me 1923 born because of nick, I call you NickBoy)

    Sengun has not played as well as early in the season but is still playing well. Your boy Jalen on the other hand, other than a few games, has looked like **** then entire season. Sengun would be playing even better if your boy Jalen could stand on the beach and throw the ball in the ocean. Sengun is being double and tripled team every time he touches the ball. If he had players that could hit open shots then they would pay for the double teams. You might try actually watching the games sometimes instead of trotting out the same stupid rhetoric every time Sengun has what you perceive to be a "bad" game. TBH, it might have a little more weight if you ever acknowledged when Sengun has a great game. Instead you are absent likely pissed off when he has good games. Lucky for us his bad games are fairly rare so we do not see you much.

    I mean it seems like it would've lined you up for a pretty brutal war

    Why do you think the UK produces such poor basketball talent for being such a highly populated fancy country? Spain, France, and Germany have all given us absolute Legends, the Balkans and Baltics produce, even Greece has talent

    Look at this https://www.fiba.basketball/rankingmen#tab=fiba

    Behind Iceland? Good lord. Have ye no shame?

    Ask to British people. It is not my problem/responsibility. Uk is my current address but it does not make me British.
    i am from a historical Roman city;Ankyra, currently Ankara, capital of Turkey and very proud of it.

    Accountability. Buying Alperen stock in case anyone is selling.

    Also buying Amen, Jabari, Tari...

    Patiently waiting to see Cam make noticeable improvements in what Udoka has been preaching to him from day one. Namely the tunnel vision and the overall awareness on defense.

    But you have to admire their ability to create an alternate reality for themselves.
    A whole world where their idol is never at fault for any of his follies.

    He hated Harden too? If so, it proves he has a history of hating the teams best player. I avoided the GARM for a long time other than scanning for headlines periodically around draft time and after trades due to it becoming so toxic about a decade ago. I only really started getting back into the GARM last year mainly due to @AroundTheWorld threads about Alpi getting me excited to be here once again.

    Sengun has not been playing well for a while now. He is not making his move early enough in the possession. Teams have learned that he will wait several seconds to make a decision and are sending the double teams later in the shot clock. It is a confidence thing and he will be alright. Jalen is a lost cause as a starter.

    There have been a lot of things that have changed about his game in the last month or so. He is no longer taking mid-range shots. He is hesitating, as you say, allowing double teams. Whether that is by design, due to injury, or loss of confidence, I do not know. We do know he had an injury leading up to the all-star break. Is it lingering? Who knows. Ime recently mentioned about him baiting double teams so maybe it is by design?

    Baldrick is Tony Robinson.

    Rodney is Nicholas Lyndhurst.

    I agree. I have no idea why he abandoned the flamingo. Sengun himself admitted that he is taking too long to make decisions. This kid is still going to be great. We just have to get a legit shooting guard (not easy) and we are going to be great for a long time. I like Cam, but I really think he will be best served as a sixth man through next season.
