Alex Len 2017 - 2018 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Umm... can someone check to see if there was some sort of magnetic anomaly that occured in the Earth's atmosphere?  5/10 FG, 11/12 FT (yes.. Free Throw), 13 Boards, 1 Ast, 2 Blks, 3 TO 

 

This can't be the same Alex Len that we've been waiting on.. could it?

They could cut Monroe and trade Chandler yet they’ll still manage to play him 20 mpg. 

Couldn't care less about all of them misses.   He has one simple job for me. Rebound the f*cking ball from a center unlike 75% of the NBA centers and he did that. Good job, Len.

11/10- This boy better start taking his starting role seriously. 2 TOs within the first two mins, sigh.

 

No time for fool around if he wants Monroe bought out and Chandler traded. The time is NOW.

 

He heard ya big time all right and told you to SIT. DOWN! :lol:

the FTs were the biggest surprise here....thanks for carrying my westbrick here :lol:

 

I was about to post the same minus the Westbrook part. I have a Lonzo Ball problem and Len totally rectified that. 

 

My Roto team is still at 78% from the FT line, but progress.

He is the Danny Green of the Front court. Flashes of brilliance followed by a bunch of duds. Expect him to get dropped and picked up about another 1000x this year. He has the physical tools, but I'm not sure he has the mental ones to really succeed and fully breakout (see Jonas Valanciunas)

he has all the tools to become a good starting center, all he needs is minutes in the thirties...dude is 24, not like hes 28 and hes going nowhere, its all about confidence, you cant expect him to flourish everytime hes on the court when he gets 38mins in a game and in the next one he plays 22...sorry but at this point its all about confidence, everyone who has seen this dude over the years knows that he can perform when given the minutes

Some guys just don't have it upstairs. Those guys never make it to the top. You can't teach reactions and BBall IQ, its something people have or not. Len seems like another low BBall IQ guy. Good luck to you if you think otherwise but 4 years of making the same dumb mistakes isn't good data to work with (5.5 in JVs case). The reason guys like Gasol Bros and Bro Lo and even Vucevic have succeeded (with arguably less physical tools than either Len or JV) so well in this league is because they are such smart cerebral players than make great passes, learned to shoot because they saw how the league was evolving. Some guys just don't have the reactions or court smarts to do that...

Don’t care about his b-ball IQ. He gets minutes and produces me stats 

 

You need stats therefore you need minutes but to have minutes you have the iq so stay on the floor

Therefore brains doesnt matter anymore?

now you just twisting my words to appease yourself...point is, he doesnt need a high bball iq cause he has all the physical tools to be a good nba player (and some brains to make the simple & right plays on the court)...i may be wrong but i dont care, he produces when he gets the minutes and he needs to get his on this s---y developing team...

Point is plain and simple...as have you said he needs some brains to make the simple and right plays on the court...if aint, he aint staying on court...so iq matters in fantasy...

 

If you really insist you dont care about iq...mmmm nevermind, seems you really dont care about iq anyways...lol

Have you ever considered it’s Len’s lack of bball IQ that’s preventing him from getting more minutes?
