All reports were Minny was willing to do a Rose/Rubio swap.


This doesnt complete the picture

How much were you giving Ricky - years and dollars - to stay?

Randle money.
The going rate.
Goddamn we've needed a legit starting PG for  along long time.
So you don't cheap out.

You can build a team around KZ and Rubio.

Utah was looking to contend and decided not to pay him

It's not entirely clear how much, if at all, Utah has benefited from those moves.

It's very clear how much Phoenix — a team much closer to us in stature/progression —has benefited from the addition of Ricky.

Caught the last minute of PHX-LAC.
Booker canned two jumpers for the W.
Tied game, time running down, Paul George on him, Kawhi comes over to double and cut him off, and Book makes a nasty turnaround at the buzzer with PG all over him.  They both tumble to the court as time expires ans the ball sails through.
Nice!

Clips TV names Zubac player of the game, then he secures a rebound with 10 secs left in a tie game, and proceeds to throw a pass into Ayton arms.  Giving PHX the last shot.

Good game

Suns A game beats Clips C game by a deuce.

And Nets are shutting me up as well.

I had just tuned in with 55 secs left.
But not sure why RegJax was guarding Booker.  Booker got to his spot and shot over Jax for a 2 point lead.  Seemed easy and got Book feeling good.

I really like the young PHX core of Book - Rubio - Ayton - Bridges.
Saric and Banes are solid role players.
Just need to fill out the roster a bit more.

Giving Brad Stevens good minutes off the bench. 

How?

Offensive rebounding. 

Now there's a surprise.

Enes
« Reply #12763 on: August 05, 2020, 12:27:34 AM »

Enes was a +4 in 15 minutes, or a +1 every 3.75 minutes, best among the Celts.

It follows that, had he played for 26.25 minutes, Boston woulda won the game.

Next time give him 27 full minutes, just to make sure.

Kamster, u follow me?

What do you say Bank?

Carlos' unhealthy obsession with Big Turkish men
« Reply #12764 on: August 05, 2020, 02:54:23 AM »

Carlos you won't stop talking about Enes Kanter. 

You want to talk Enes +/- stats? 
OK.   
Just remember that I didn't bring him up.
Yeah, I posted my dislike for him quite often when he was here, i'll admit.
But most of the forum grew tired and I moved on.   

So excuse me (and apologies to everyone else here) if I discuss Enes Kanter's Knick stint one more time.
Apologies in advance!. But Carlos has called me out about for the Nth time so I'm hoping to put this tedium to bed.

NOW Carlos, these are YOUR STATS remember.  This is what you want to bring up.  PLUS minus. You brought it up. OK?  Not me.

So here it is:


                   Enes on court.   Enes off court
2017-2018.   Knicks -5.0        Knicks -2.0
2018-2019.   Knicks -10.3       Knicks -1.5


So the net effect is the Knicks were (using the metric you tout) a little better (3.0points) when Enes sat in 2017-2018 and much better (8.8pts) when Enes sat in 2018-2019.   And this is not cherry picking games here and there which you're not even supposed to use +- for.  This is for the season.

So you must concede to me that Enes was a failed Knick.  And to be fair I will concede to you that Enes has posted much better stats for Portland  and Boston. 

Not comes the litmus test..... does Carlos modify the tone of his posts and stop bringing up Enes and me or does he continue his folly using +/- in the face of factual evidence.  Because if Carlos doesn't like facts that don't suit his argument I will just set him to ignore and never have to see his Enes baiting again.
