    This. I'm starting to think he could rise to become a good sixth man on a contender, maybe a leader of a 2nd unit.
    But ****, we cannot keep hanging our hat on this guy.

    Yes, best player available at the time, but let's cut bait. While he's young and some other GM could think he has potential. So so sick of this crap.

    Admittedly I didn’t see much of it as I was billing all my time to the Underhills.

    He helped the Celtics get a win. He gave the players hugs during halftime.

    Watching AMEN stop his dribbles when an actual NBA level player took a swipe at his dribbles made me sick. ITs only his first game so ima give it a pass but he looked spooked out there. I guess playing against high school kids didnt translate...who woulda thought?

    Scoot is 0-5 with 0 points and it’s almost halftime.

    Rockets FO wanted Cade but missed out on #1 pick, Rockets FO wanted Paolo but again missed out on the #1 pick, getting a franchise player is based on Luck there nothing we can do.

    Jaden Ivey, Scoot Henderson, Jalen Green, 3 guys who are all athleticism, no skill that the board REALLY wanted.... not looking so good right now.

    Players have to be able to shoot no matter how athletic they are.

    I was just watching a condensed replay....EVERYONE got slaughtered on drives tonight..Alpy included. Magic drove into paint AT WILL tonight. He's always going to get you rebounds, he plays solid defense, he's a streak shooter who can get his shot up over anyone. He can play inside... and will when given the chance. I do agree that it's mostly physical....he still needs to put on weight....his dad was 6"11" as well and 250. We'll just see what happens. But, tell me your go to guy NOW...where we can see who you think will carry us....Jalen, Alpy,Brooks,FVV...who you got ?

    I'm sure Fred's thinking

    " I left Toronto for THIS humiliation??!! . . . Oh wait, I left for the money. "

    That interview from Ime was solid. If there's one post-game interview y'all should watch, that should be it. It talks about Jalen, Sengun, Amen, etc. He basically tells it like it is for the most part.

    Was even surprised with Feigen doing some straight-for-the-throat questioning to these guys. He's usually Mr. Nice Guy.

    He seemed a bit shell-shocked.

    Very disappointing start, to say the least, but they just have to suck it up and deal.
