    I like his enthusiasm but he needs to understand that he won't instantly receive a ton of playing time if/when he gets to the NBA. Like with Dmo it can take some time. Sounds like he wants to start, but that's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

    "Hypothetical adventure" seems about right.

    Some real bizarre ones.

    Well he's not starting. I could see him getting backup SF and PF minutes.

    He'd be a man of the third row at PF. Maybe he likes the third row better? Or maybe he's a back row kind of guy.

    Maybe back row Popyournickles can light her fire?

    What was that real infamous one? It was gold. I can't remember anything about it other than it was amazing.

    What is the hype about this guy? 7 points in 25 minutes in the Euroleague?

    There are conversions for Euroleague to NBA stats, and Euroleaguers points generally drop by about 30% or so when they get to the NBA.

    So if he averages 7 points in 25 minutes in Euro ball, he'll average 4 to 5 in 25 minutes in the NBA. That's terrible.

    Everything else goes down by similar percentages except for assists, which go up in the NBA because the NBA stat keepers aren't as stingy with recording assists.

    We're talking about a bench player. I'd gladly take Papa putting up Casspi numbers (7 ppg) on offense while playing the good defense he does. He's got a high motor and we need that off the bench.

    That was classic, of course.

    Yes, I think that was it.
