    Nobody is saying start TyTy. They can start Nix with TyTy backing up (or let the guys compete for the starting job) and see what happens. KPJ should play his natural position which is SG.

    I am not saying this is going to work. It's all experiment, just like playing KPJ at PG was an experiment. We are a developmental team.

    Again, I am refuting the saying that we have no choice but play KPJ. There are choices we can make.

    Never said nix is a legit player, I’m just saying why he’s playing up. They’re seeing what he can do at this level. He has gotten better, but I don’t think he’ll be on the squad next season.

    Suit yourself.

    Let me add this and we are done: I believe TyTy will eventually overtake Nix. You can dismiss this as you want. But nobody knows how TyTy will do if you give him more NBA time. Can't judge a player by summer league and a few preseason games. The reason they send TyTy to the g league (which would not be a bad idea if we were a contending team with competent veteran players) is because they insist on the KPJ experiment. A lot of us see that the experiment has failed, not good for the team's development and not good for KPJ's development.

    My prediction on KPj 22/23:
    ....................Pts....Rebs.....Ast.....TOV%......TOV.....FT%......3P%....TS%.....FG%
    ....................20.4.....5.5........7.8.......14.3%.......2.7.....71%.......38%.....57%......45%
    22/23:.
    1st 14 gms: 19.2.....5.8........5.6.......17.5%.......3.9.....73.2%....32.5%..51.5%..40.9%
    16 gms
    add 2 gms:. 19.8.....6.1......5.8.......17.4%......3.9....73.9%...35.2%...52.9%..41.9%

    Whether I write a little or a lot im closer to being correct than your chicken s+++
    @## that was too scared to take our bet before opening night.

    You would be losing our bet right now and be banned from
    this site if your scared @$$ hadn't stuck your head in a
    hole like an ostrich.

    You have no leg to stand on to criticize me little b****

    I will remind you of the numbers by seasons end.
    You will bow to me b*****!!

    I would like to put down your prediction but you were too much of a coward

    No, just noticed the cowardly lion responded....again not to
    me directly.

    He knows I'm going to own his @$$ by seasons end on who
    knows more about basketball.

    Most people know not to doubt me. Reeko the b***** is going to
    learn to hard way. He made it personal.

    I don't demand respect....but I have a way of earning it.

    My actions speak for themselves.

    Our bet was easy.....predict 7 stats for KPj and 7 stats for Brunson and let's see
    who gets closer for season stats. Loser has to leave this site. The coward not only
    was scared to put numbers up before opening night......but he has the nerve to
    take pop shots at me. Easiest thing in the world is to criticize......man up and
    put your numbers out there. I put myself out there and I stand by my numbers.....
    Cowards that can only recite numbers means nothing to me. Just like
    those who recite Shakespeare.......if you don't know what it means then
    you don't know Shakespeare. If you don't know how stats come about....
    then you don't know more than me @Reeko) at
    basketball.

    If people aren't impressed with the stats I'm nailing as we are playing the schedule
    from hell, mostly on the road.....I don't know what to say? People just don't
    know basketball.

    Assists & 3-pt %
    I said before opening night that KPj will get used more as a
    spot shooter this season.....
    *well in the first 16 Green needs to get more comfortable running some point.
    *JC needs to take some of the load (pass some JC and you will get in the game)
    *Team needs to adjust to Alp in the post. Players aren't sliding along the perimeter well.
    *Once Jabari starts hitting some......more assists will come to KPj, Green, JC, & Alp

    KPj hitting 50% from CnS....will bring up pts, 3P%, TS%, eFG% as the season continues
    and Green, Alp, JC, Nix.....add Tate take on more of the steering wheel duties.

    Assists will go up 2.0 for kPj as Tate comes back....Bruno lob dunks..... Jabari finds
    his groove and hits spot shooting 3's and CnS from the FT line.

    TOV%
    Will come down as things get cleaner for our offense as we start to play
    weaker teams (after game 25) and players like Jabari/Tari learn where
    they are suppose to be.

    Right now vs playoff teams on the road in the first 16 games.
    Eventually we will play sub-500 teams and home games.

    If this is a race......we are just barely rounding the first turn.
    I'm showing how two games makes an increase in the numbers
    when it's a small sample size.

    Just like last season when the first 14 games were poor....then
    his numbers improved in the remaining games of the season.
    We already talked about this but you are playing dumb.

    What were your prediction numbers? Yeah I thought so.
    You just criticize as well.....never put down predictions
    so they never get subjected to criticism.

    You think it's easy.....try it next preseason. Heck try it now.
    Predict the final season stats.

    KPJ does not deserve all the blame for the Rockets failures this season. Neither does Alpi. And… as much as I think he should probably be replaced for a few reasons… it’s probably not Silas’ fault.

    The issue is in the NBA you need one thing to happen… you need the defense to collapse at the rim that opens up shots. This team just has no elite playmaker yet. Players like KPJ, etc. probably look a whole lot better on a consistent basis playing with an elite playmaker who makes their lives alot easier by collapsing the defense or drawing double teams.

    This is why, while I think it might be ugly, I think we at least need to try to start using Jalen like he’s Harden or at least OKC Westbrook. Let’s just see what we got there. It’s a long shot but on this roster he’s still our best shot.

    I think KPJ has become a decent player and has surprised even me.. but I also think he’s proven that he cannot be a primary elite playmaker and be a winning team. He has the ball in his hands… a lot… and that does not lead to collapsing the defense for open 3’s or double teams for easier shots.

    Good numbers don't tell the whole story. I remember dd and folks were sucking off wood for putting up great numbers.

    Kpj hinders the team with his iso offense. He is improving but he aint making anyone else look good doing it aside from maybe green

    You are a period.

    You hate that I'm xposing your wrinkled @##

    I noticed you didn't post that said (before opening night):
    KPj 34 minutes 20 points
    Jalen 34 minutes 25 points (will get there by seasons end)
    Sengun 28 minutes and 15 points

    You posted nothing. Always wrong on everything.

    You are not a man
    You are not a boy
    You are not a little girl.

    You are just fecal matter....bloody fecal matter at that
