    I think he is capable of rebounding better. Yes. Absolutely. Is that why they signed him? No. Obviously not. Both things can be true.

    Sums up my thoughts for myself very nicely.

    I was so pumped earlier in the season and now I mostly just glance at the box score.
    This team had mojo and then lost it.
    While I am confident they will get it back at some point, I dont know when that will be.

    Rockets are off the rails right now. Too many injuries.

    Ready for another L, baby! Already simulating the draft lottery to see if we can somehow end up with two top 4 picks!

    The coach's press conferences are dreadful. He is always speaking in a low monotone. No voice modulation at all. Needs a speech teacher.

    No hope unless we play .150 ball or worse the rest of the way.

    (the 4th seed for the draft, Charlotte, is at .212)

    I will just watch:
    1. When Thibo and Ime will get Time-outs for momentum change.
    2. To guess how many Gaviscon tablets Thibo needs for his heartburn and indigestion problems?

    What are you? Freddie Mercury? It's a basketball press conference.

    Very true.

    But he is a low career rebounder (often because he is face guarding on the perimeter). To expect more than 3 per game is unrealistic. And it is hardly the biggest problem with the team at the moment!
    (His shot selection is of far greater concern!!)

    I believe he wants to be out there--he played in all 82 games last season and IIRC he played nearly every game both years in college as well. They must be seeing something on the X-Rays they don't like.

    I've already gotten lucky with a Tankathon sim where we ended up with two top picks. It can happen. We just need to believe!

    For some reason, I like seeing the Knicks have some success. I think the special place for them in my heart exists, even just seeing their blue and orange colors, because they were part of my favorite sports moment of all time.

    So, it was Silas-era mystery illnesses Version 2.
