    I'm sure Lowry/Heat, Oladipo AND Robinson/Raptors all feel the same way. Would definitely be trying to get Powell long-term to build with this new, younger core we have emerging.

    @Haymitch LOLadipstakes updates 9:50 EDT:

    Just got off the phone with the boys in Mountain View, they were able to rig up a Google OladipMind neural net that delivers predictive analytics based on 72 years of NBA transaction data - best guess at 97% F1 score currently is:

    You bring up a great point too. I think (or hope at least) Silas' inexperience as a HC is preventing him from being able to do this but will get better with time to recognize how to utilize your role players better.

    I'm troubled at someone's observation in some other thread where Silas is putting players in their worst positions as far as shooting percentages are concerned. That's a huge red flag for someone that is offensive minded.

    Would love to see Mario Elie come in as an assistant this offseason. Having been a role player he would have some insight into this exact issue. Maybe if Weaver gets poached?

    These mofos always favor model accuracy over model interpretability and this is the result. FFS just use a random forest and plot the damn thing with error bars.

    (btw I bet that developing this model could be a real-life Kaggle competition, although I don't know how one would go about gathering the data in the first place)

    I think he's just feeling out his players at this point. Most of these guys haven't been in the league long to Silas really don't know what he has.

    For me the jury's still out on whether or not Silas is a good coach until he gets a "normal" NBA season under his belt. Perhaps it'll get better next year because he should be familiar with Wood, KPJ, Tate, etc after this year to know how to properly utilize them.

    Please let it be someone big and likes to play a lot of defense... I remember when we had a combination of Tucker and Beverly who love to tear people up. All these soft ass millenials on our team (except tate) better start scrapping. You can't "like" your way to a championship... contrary to popular belief.

    The Rockets are waiting to see what the losers of the Gordon/Lowry sweepstakes will offer for Oladipo.

    Pretty likely. The rumored sixers offer is great news for us. Sellers market.
