I got offered Jimmy Butler for Covington and i thought it was very rude to offer a Butler for a Lord. Butler is there to serve while Lord is there to rule

Apparently Covington found out right before the game his childhood friend had been shot and killed. Hope the Lord gets through it ok. That would also explain his performance

our Lord is testing us to see who amongst us are loyal and who amongst are thieving scoundrels.  Stay faithful brothers and sisters.  This is but a dry spell.  Our Lord will rain 3s upon us soon!

His fg% is crazy high in this season so far


This is the part that has amazed me.  I am admit I had never been a Covington fan prior to this year.  Even though I did see the value of him being a 3 and D guy, I just always looked at him as a bad player on a bad team putting up stats.  His FG% was just too atrocious for me to ever really want to draft him despite him being an elite steals guy.


I look at the FG% this year, and I know its early but I am like how can a career 40% shooter start to shoot 50%, and is it sustainable?  And I am starting to believe it might be.  I think having better players around him and with Simmons being such a good passer has helped get him better shots.  The pressure to be the main guy that spaces the floor for them seems to be off because they Redick now who is a proven shooter so he is not alone in that. 


And it seems like he is the type of guy who works hard on his game to improve too.

first season with ben simmons, as long as he can knock down open shots i think it could be his best season.

Yes Simmons has been great for him. Some regression in FG and 3% to come but I think this nice increase is partially sustainable. less usage overall for him but more good looks.
