  1. I didn't see the game. I'm disappointed that they lost. but well, it's just one game, but they should win the next one. We need a good start to the season and put ourselves in position for the playoffs. With regard to Hassan's leadership, when you're getting paid like Hassan, you're expected to be a leader! What are you talking about? Even Riley asked that from him, if I remember it right. If he cannot do it vocally, do it with action. Stop setting the bar low for our guys. They need to step up and do what it takes to win.

    This is not a stretch. Our coach was a runnerup as NBA COTY and a cowinner for NBCA COTY. We make the playoffs, maybe at least the second round of the playoffs with this roster we have. He's NBA COTY.

    I just hope we have a solid start on offense and defense. I'm expecting a lot from this team. McGruder's out. (To me) Winslow's under the microscope, has got a lot to prove. Svelte JJ's suggested second unit seems "weak" to me. It looks like a unit that is incapable of scoring unless Winslow balls out.
  4. I think the battle with Embiid is something Whiteside can't win. Better hope Embiid remains fragile, Hassan. The dude can do almost everything. Just focus on doing your job and improving your own game. You're too worried about what other people say. Too defensive.
  5. See I've been down on Winslow's offense for a long time. But I just call it as I see it. I don't consider that hating. I'm willing to give him the chance to prove himself, maybe the dude simply needs more games and reps to get more comfortable. He badly needs to shoot much, much better. I don't care how good he is at driving; since he cannot shoot, the defense will just sag off him and it's gonna be tough for the others. Have you seen that clip in which Chris Paul left/disregarded Roberson on purpose and let him shoot a three. Yup, if Winslow doesn't hit his shots, defenses are gonna do that to him. I saw the highlights of him vs the Wizards. I'm gonna say the same thing I said about J-Rich when he was struggling: Attack the basket with the intent to score and just be ready to pass the ball when the shot is not there. But on those same assist highlights, I just thought that his driving angles were a bit off. I looked at it, and it was obvious he wasn't going to shoot it. Winslow's gotta be more assertive out there on the offense. Attack the basket with the intent to score, make the defense commit, when shot's not available, then pass. By the way, he and Whiteside have this low and slow gather when going for a shot. I don't like it. Simmons looked good. If Embiid stays healthy and Markelle Fultz comes back, that teams gonna be very exciting to watch.

    Look like Winslow's performance is still a meh???
  7. Our boy Rodney's out for 3 to 6 months. If we get plagued with injury again...
  8. Okay I like this, and I like the speed of how he attacked because back then, he tended to slow down when nearing the rim. I think he needs to learn how to create more separation. I think he should study Harden's offensive moves, the operative word being "offensive."

    We all know he has defensive flaws. He needs to get better at those, and then, he'll be in the conversation for the defensive player of the year. It's not just about the blocks. There's more to defense than just making blocks. For example, Cavs play Love at 5 and park him at the three or do a pick and roll, what's Whiteside gonna do?

    Of all the players we have, you're worried about UD, who we all know will not get playing time? He's just there for off-court leadership.

    We cannot blame him. Really, for me, it sucks. But I was also one of those he would need to come off the bench because we have Dion, right? He's the future. He's just gonna get a much better role and much more playing time in Cleveland because all he has to compete with for minutes is that bum JR Smith. Dwyane over JR anytime. Klay's gonna have his hands full guarding D-Wade. Good luck hiding Curry on the defensive side by switching to the SG now. D-Wade's gonna school him. Damn, I can already see what's gonna happen. This would be an interesting season. GSW vs the Thunder and then the Cavs. However, since Dwyane is not a shooter and is a bit of a ball stopper, their pace would slow down, I think. I still think we can match up well with them. Our guys just have to live up to the hype we've made and the contracts they got.
  12. 2017 - 18 Regular Season Wins Prediction

    Yeah, I believe that too. However, they need to find themselves high in the standings in order to draw the attention of the voters, then maybe we could get one or two in the all star lineup.
  13. 2017 - 18 Regular Season Wins Prediction

    We do not really have all-stars at the moment, I think we can do better than fifth seed. With all the pieces we have, we had better do a "03-04 Detroit-Pistons" this season, which I believe is not far-fetched.
  14. 2017 - 18 Regular Season Wins Prediction

    Barring any injuries to our guys, we can be top 3 or 4 in the East.
