  1. Prob brings down his Pts n Rebs a bit. Nance n Love will get there buckets, and they're both good rebounders. So there will be games where those two take away from Allen. Tbh tho, it won't hurt his overall numbers much, hes still very much their future and their featured big man. And these two could also help in spacing the floor leading to more open looks for Allen. So it should only slightly impact him. But let's be real here, Nance will get rest days/sits here n there, and Love will he hurt again in 2 weeks.
  2. Pretty solid numbers last night considering how poorly he started the game shooting. Obv want better FG%, but hes not gonna start 1-9 shooting often. But he looked really good moving around, grabbing boards and attacking the basket; THAT PUTBACK SLAM WAS FEROCIOUS. And even saw a couple really nice down-low post moves. Hope I'm not just tryna sell myself on KP, but I like what I saw. We know he has elite upside
  3. They should be pretty similar ROS. Allen more Blocks, and I guess more Rebs. Ayton better FT%. In a redraft rn for ROS I'd still prob take Ayton over Allen, but it's real close. Ayton just seems safer. But no denying Allen has been exciting in his new role.
  4. member that one game he shot 50% from the field? That was cool. Jk, great game tonight.
  5. 4 straight games now with 20 or more points (and 5 of last 6)...pretty solid line again tonight! The no 3s tonight burned me tho
  6. its almost like Embiid is a better player than Allen or something
  7. I'm not saying dont play him at all, just no need to play him a ton of mins and have him out there chucking shots. I mean, the Knicks are winning. Haliburton was a projected lotto pick, sure he fell in the draft, but he is a far superior player to IQ. Guarantee you if IQ started playing 30+ mins a game his FG% would drop even lower than it is, TOs would go up and Knicks would prob lose couple more games. It's just not worth it for a player that's far exceeding expectations. Hes not a good defender yet, and hes inconsistent on offense. Sometimes it's better to conserve greatness rath
  8. Maybe Thibs is trying to conserve IQs greatness? He could run him out there 30+ mins a game, have him chuck more shots and give up more TOs...but that's not gonna help his development. Dont get me wrong, I think he deserves a few more mins then hes been getting, and some of these other no-name/has-been guards need to be on the court less, but IQ is far out playing expectations. If they played him a ton of mins it would ruin his development, atleast for now. Maybe by end of season he'll be getting starter mins, depending on knicks place in standings and how serious they're taking thi
  9. Also wouldnt surprise me if they're just trying to take it ez with this 'back thing' and sit him against bruisers like Embiid and JV. They're next game is Bkn, a much easier opponent, where the Mavs will need more scoring. I'm hoping that's the case anyway, and he plays next game. I mean Carlisle did say he doesn't expect it to be long term.. But yea, unfortunately I also could see him sit another week or so. 🤷‍♂️
  10. Prob will sit Vs Philly too. I assume they wont want him banging against Embiid. Super frustrating, just traded for him over the wknd
  11. I dont think Klay automatically makes them a contender again. Klay hasnt played in forever, getting older and coming off some serious injuries. No doubt klay's experience and wisdom will help the team some, but I dont think it's enough to compete with Lakers, clippers, jazz or even suns. Wiseman is still prob a couple years out from truly developing. I'm sure the warriors feel like their window to win another chip is rapidly closing. Dray, klay, steph all in their 30s. Wiseman will be a very good player someday, hes just not a 'win now' player. Trading Wiseman for Porzingis might no
  12. Maybe they're afraid JV would break KP after JV tossed that dude last week
  13. Ya, I feel u. I mean, you could prob package murray n some lesser player for one of the names I mentioned, but you may just be fishing then. Might as well hold I guess. A month ago I traded Murray for haliburton n duncanRob. Kinda regret it a bit now, duncanRob been very disappointing, ended up dropping him. But atleast haliburton is a legit stud.
  14. Maybe a top 20ish guy that's under performing or been disappointing recently? Maybe could work out a deal to get kyrie or KD. I'm sure KD owners are fed up. Maybe straight for booker? Or even Butler? Idk, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe murray sets the world on fire ros, but I doubt it. Seems like a great time to sell high on murray n buy low on an elite stud
  15. Theres 12 teams in my league, i think McConnell is very valuable. He's 3rd in the league in Steals, and had 3 games recently with 12+ assists. Since the end of January, TJ is at about 9/8/4 on 50% shooting and 2.5 stocks, with low TOs for a guard. The only weird thing that sticks out is his poor FT%, but thats an aberration, he barely shoots free throws, hes 4 for 12 on the season, hes normally more like 80%. I dont expect him to put up 9/8/4 and 2.5 stocks ROS, but theres no reason he cant come close. The Pacers are down a couple key players that arent expected back anytime soon, an
  16. I'm fighting for a playoff spot, and have gotten just completely fed up with KD. I need guys playing and he's too valuable to just sit on my INJ list, its frustrating. KD is an ez top 5 guy when playing, but the Nets clearly have no intent of pushing him if they don't need to. They seem like a lock for a top 3 seed in East (with decent shot at the 1 seed) and that's with KD sitting out a bunch. There's still no timetable for KDs return, and even when he does comeback I envision plenty of rest days or minor 'injuries' ahead. So...i traded: Kevin Durant for Porzingis and TJ
  17. That's not at all what im saying. I'm saying theres no need to rush those two guys back. Atleast not right now. When CJ is ready, he obv gets the starting job back over GTJ. But Trent needs to continue to get big mins, whether that's taking mins from DJJ or Melo or hood, w/e. Trent is prob they're 3rd best Off weapon after dame/cj. I do think they should consider Nurk coming off the bench for the first week or so, just kinda ease him in. He just seems so fragile they should wanna slowly ramp him up for playoffs. Either way, whoever is starting, a timeshare might not be the worst idea
  18. Lol obv they're playing well cuz of Dame. Hes a legit MVP candidate. But I just wonder if rushing to shove high usage guys like CJ or even Nurk into the mix will ruin the chemistry they have going rn. No doubt CJ and Nurk are game changers. At some point theyll both come in a help Dame n Co, but just doesn't seem like they NEED it right now.
  19. I think Kanter will keep getting the bulk of mins for a while after Nurk comes back. Maybe something like 20-22 for Nurk n 26-28 for kanter. Theres just no reason to shake things up with how well they're playing, plus with how fragile Nurk has been why force starters mins on him. Maybe as it gets closer to playoffs theyll start to shift more to Nurk, but they should be happy they got this badass center tandem, and should keep taking advantage of kanters great play. I'm also curious to see how they handle GTJ when CJ comes back. I imagine they might not be as cautious with CJ compa
  20. Would much rather have the Brogdon side. Maybe help?
