The THIBS Connection: Jimmy Butler
« Reply #13545 on: September 27, 2020, 02:35:13 PM »

In Butler's 3rd season for the Bulls, the [presently] 6'7" 230 pound SG/SF, having earned 38 minutes a game:

13.1 ppg/4.6 rebounds/2.6 ass/1.9 steals/.769 FT%/.283 3PT/397% FG/260-338 FTs

Fourth season?  BINGO. 

20.0 ppg/5.8 rebounds/3.3 assists/1.8 steals/.834 FT%/.378% 3-Pt
And he has improved on that (up to 6.7 rebounds and 6 assists last season)

Not making the case for a direct correleation, obviously, but I am sure Thibs sees the parallels with his 6'6" 215 pound 20 year old in 30.8 minutes per game.

14.3 ppg/5.0 rebounds/2.6 ass/1.0 steals/.614 FT%/.320% 3PT/.445% FG/156-254 FTs

Pretty good for a 19 year old rookie and a fatally flawed team.

ANTICIPATING Kiid coming back with "Just like Jimmer Fredette." 

And why not?  No less absurd than his Jordan Hill testimonies.

Jimmer's rookie year, in 18.6 mpg?

7.6 ppg/1.9 rebounds/1.8 assists/0.5 steals/.833 FT%/.361% 3PT/.386% FG/40-48 FTs

Jordan's stint with the Knicks? 

4.0 ppg/2.5 Rebounds/0.3 assists

Yup, from Saint Jude to Taint Crude, Kiid's grasp of stats and analysis parallels that of his hero Donald Trump.

2009 Draft...A Gift That Keeps Giving
« Reply #13548 on: September 27, 2020, 05:26:26 PM »

My only real problem with Jordan Hill was that watching him play hurt my eyes.

Awkward. 

Nice frame and length, but seemed utterly lost on offense. 

FUCK DONNIE AssFlow.  Jordan Hill.  JESUS.  What fucking need did he fill? Trade click bait after only 24 games. 

We already had David Lee, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Al Harrington, Jared Jeffries....our point guard was fucking Chris Duhon!

Not sure if a trade up was an option, as Taint Crude smugly suggests, vis a vis Curry, who wanted to be a Knick. 

2009 Draft was a literal buffet table of point guards and enduring talents. 

Some washed out.  Some glowed for a while, then dimmed.  Others sustained. 

#7 Steph Curry
#8 Jordan Hill
#9 DeMar DeRozan
#10 Brandon Jennings
#17 Jrue Holiday
#18 Ty Lawson
#19 Jeff Teague
#21 Darren Collison
#26 Taj Gibson
#27 DeMare Carroll
#28 Wayne Ellington
#29 Toney Douglas
#42 Patrick Beverley

Nine players still in the league. 

Four players?  Not.  Including, tah-dah BOTH of the KNICKS's 2009 reaches.

Hey Bank

Sorry Bank, but this doesn’t look good for you Celtics fans.

Still, you got to the EC finals. Where do I sign for that?

BEAT LA!

Heat played great-and they owned crunch time the entire series-can't be too pissed

But am a little disappointed and was really hoping for a G7

the losses in G1 anf G2 were killers.

But it will be easy to root for the Heat in the Finals

But fuck Riley for oldtime sakes

Well, reportedly NYK were considering Hill or Jennings.
But I do recall some scouts making a case for JRue who sounded intriguing.  Which is where I was leaning since I didn't want Hill and was wary of Jennings, a skinny chucker, who turned out pretty good his first few years.  But JRue was a just a default pick for me, and I'm no draftnik.

Knix did the same thing 3 years earlier in 2006 under Isiah where we took a raw F (Balkman #20) with the higher pick and then picked up PG scraps late (Mardy Collins #29) neatly avoiding better PG's such as Rondo #21, Lowry #24, Farmar #26.  And to compound the idiocy  Balkman most certainly would have been there at #29.

Since Ty Law was mentioned.  Last week he got booted by his Chinese team for "insulting Chinese women."  First he declared on Instagram: "Chinese women got cakes on the low" which likely wouldn't get him in trouble since even I have no idea what that means.  Hell, it rather sounds like something from Chinese poorly translated into English.  But then two hours later TyLaw posted a pic of him sorta groping a Chinese girl in what seemed to be a strip club.

Reportedly he's now banned from playing in China.
Sensitive folks here.  Gotta follow the law, son.  And be more careful on social media -- or hell, just use a friend's account if you happen to be a public figure.

Ty Law has had alcohol problems, and apparently there was avid of him shouting and harassing some people at a Starbucks in Shanghai earlier this year, and it was presumed he'd been imbibing.  Not sure how many leagues are up and running, and willing to hire Americans these days.

An educated guess. 

An old school, unshaved pudendum. 

Had a productive six year run for Denver before a precipitous decline in 2015, bouncing around to a few teams before landing in China.  One would think boozing had something to do with it from the sudden/sodden statistical decline. 

Speaking of Denver, I see Kenneth Faried also bolted for China.

Bringing The Heat
« Reply #13559 on: September 28, 2020, 02:42:29 PM »

Un grosso respecto for Pat Riley.

As per Coach Thibs, this is what consistent coaching, continuity, thoughtful drafting, canvasing the weeds for undrafted talent, player development and TEAM WORK looks like. 

Great Game 6.  The manner in which they put the Celtics away in the final stanzas of the fourth quarter was impressive, because the Celtics came to play and are a great team. 

Again, idly projecting, but when Thibs sees RJ and Taj, I suspect he is seeing Butler and Haslem. 

I am hoping, that Rose resists the urge to make a big splash, and instead opts for actual player development, and looks instead to the summer of 2021 to have something positive in the way of a reconstituted culture to sell to free agents.  EVEN THEN, I wouldn't go all in...I mean, Kawhi?  Anthony Davis?  Giannis?  New York?  Dolan?  Seriously? 

Player Development is clearly the default way to proceed, given our draft resources, and limited free agent prospects (although, having said that, Jerami Grant IS OPTING OUT, and will likelybe seeking Portis numbers, as will Harrell). 

In the here and now, speaking of Westchester and player development, I am quite keen to see Wooten, Brazdeikis and Harper get a shot at some floor time, presuming they have earned it. 

As for the November Draft going into 2021? 

There is a reasonable chance that Onyeka Okongwu, Tyrese Haliburton, Devin Vassell, Isaac Okoro could be on the board at #8.
