    ESPN probably is cable only. Not sure if you can get it ala cart. Check some of the streaming sites.

    This site doesn't show sports but is a great spot for finding shows: https://www.justwatch.com/us

    Needs to get in game shape first. Not sure if he is physically ready.

    Covid-19 kicked his butt.

    And while he was not asymptomatic he did not have the severe symptoms.

    Hopefully we hit our shots and play really well so the pressure is off and MDA can try Luc and Carroll .

    I could see mda giving clemons a shot too , especially if we have foul trouble at guard.

    I wonder if tyson and mda have been playing the long con and tyson is good to go ? too hopeful , probably.

    All luc and carroll have to do to be net neutral at worst is hit their open three's . Two former very strong defensive players ... i'd give them an 8 game run to see how hot they can get/ how much defense is still there. Any extra depth they provide can be as a forward , allowing house or maclemore to slide down to guard ... weve seen harden house maclemore roco and PJ lineups. you can relpace 3 of those slots with carroll or luc . ( maybe not PJ if the opponent is playing a true 5 , but even then perhaps roco or james covers him )

    Unless all 8 guys he plays are playing very well , and its a close game throughout .. i'd be a bit disappointed if he didn't try at least 9 guys.

    I think our plan going in ( with gordon) was to play small and fast at all times ... to do that we were going to play 9 guys for sure and maybe 10 if another piece showed well . With gordon out , i want to see if luc can bring 2-4 defensive versatility still . IMO we still have to play just as fast to win , we are gonna need guys to come in and give guys a break . Plus , we keep the pace and pressure up .

    I think 9 will play. More if game is in hand at end of 4th.

    Bruno needs reps.

    Rather see Frazier over Clemons.

    agree, I dont think bruno is as high on my list of probable contributors as Luc and Carroll , just based on experience ... but Bruno looks huge compared to the rest of out team lol . Frazier prolly has better defense that clemons but cc can shoot

    Considering David Robinson played 14 years in the NBA and is a former scoring champ who retired at 37.. wow. (Harden is in his 11th season/ total games by Robinson: 987 Harden: 826)

    I can't tell if I am going to be apathetic to the rest of the season or mad with emotion lol, it feels like such a weird and empty way to play, but I've missed it all SO much

    At 6'9 he towers over all of Rockets smallball line up.

    But it's Bruno's 7'7 wingspan that makes him a giant on the court for either team.
