    Only for the fans who root for our players, not the salty idiots who cannot separate this from our overall strategy, which is a 14% maximum chance anyway at a player who could very well be the next Chet / Oden.

    Go Jabari, so happy we got to draft you :)

    I didn't even realize Rockets were only down 1.

    When Jalen hit that corner (deep) two, I had a feeling something magical was about to happen. All the momentum was with the Rockets.

    But I didn't think that it would play out so perfectly. Jabari hit a hell of a shot, and I can see him and our team growing game by game.

    Im glad smith is popping off, sucks that it at the expense the tank in the long run.

    At least it shuts up the smith haters from complaining about him

    Jabari about to show the world that he's on Steve Novak's level

    Nope, don't like this at all. Losing games is more important than anything, in fact we should just forfeit and avoid playing altogether so travesties like this don't happen

    We could potentially fall from the 5th pick to the 6th pick. Even a small chance we could fall to the 7th pick, oh the horror :rolleyes:

    Crazy how comparable the two shots are, both threes, catching at mid-court, walking into them on the right side and 0.4 seconds left.

    I love that we finally have a dynamic shooter who can just rise up and shoot at a high release point (e.g. Durant). That will be helpful in the playoffs. Hopefully in time he'll improve those mid range numbers a LOT. I don't like mid range shots because well they suck at getting you enough points to win, but if someone has the potential to actually be elite rather than "pretty good" I'd be so excited for that.

    Mid range would fit perfect in his game. Doesn't require much handles and he already has good form. People overrate handles. You have to have a PG on the team anyway, one or two people who control the offense and set their teammates up. If you can get a good playmaker, then what Jabari is giving is what you would wish your 2nd and 3rd scorer would give you: scoring with 1 dribble or less plus defense. Get your playmaking from Green, Sengun and an experienced PG. We focus on ball and player movement.

    We really need to get someone from Denver, Sacramento or Golden State on this coaching staff for next season as offensive co-oridinator. Would be a travesty to not treat Sengun like Sabonis/Draymond, treat Green/Jabari like Fox/Huerter/Curry/Klay/MPJ. Get these kids some easier points. Look what it has done for Curry and Fox's career. How good Murray looks coming off a major injury layoff.

    I gotta admit I caught myself in that moment praying that that shot does not fall in...
    How many shots like this Lillard has hit and look at them Portland now firmly stuck to the 13th place in the west conference! LOL

    This team has moments that remind me of Real Madrid in the champions league. Very encouraging. The ****ing eye of the tiger. They have some deficiencies, but they also have champ qualities that you can not teach
