We all drafted Bubble Nurk and instead got Bubblebutt Nurk.  Lets use this forum as a support network.    Group hugs for all 

My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why I Got out of bed at all The morning rain clouds up my window And I can't see at all And even if I could it'll all be gray Put your picture on my wall It reminds me

Nothing on pornhub either. I'll keep monitoring...

I wouldn’t if it’s going to leave you thin at C.  Brown’s not going to shoot 56% on 18 FGA ROS so the PPG will go down several points.  Tatum is still the alpha on their squad.  Are you willing to bet JB can drain 42% of shots from deep?  That is a 4% increase from last season (I’ll take the under). He looks well-positioned to maintain top-50 ROS but he’s still a 71% shooter from the stripe on 4+ attempts which continues to weigh his value down.  

Bubble Nurk isn’t going to be a thing this season, true, but even at 28 MPG he can still be a top-30 player.  Saying Brown’s upside > Nurk doesn’t seem well founded, imo.  I’m going to be very amused by all the reactionary posts ITT later on this season.  

Tatum still alpha? 71% ft shooter? Cute.

Brown has ZERO competition in Boston, with or without Kemba, hell f**k it even if Hayward somehow gets traded back. The guy has the freedom to shoot the lights out this year, given the fact that Boston may need to decide what to do with their salary cap in the future.

Nurk on the other side, the last time played decent ball was 2018/19 when he played 72 games, he ended up ranked #72 in total value with his 2.5+ to's and 4.0 fouls per game.

Id rather have Richaun Holmes.

Jesus man 57% fg... it insane... if u think that's sustainable, u crazy. Mitch Robb is at like 60 % (waaaat ?!).... pull yourself together.
It's true that Brown has ZERO competition in Boston, and hes a great player... but his stats are wild at the moment.

BTW Nurk was 37th best ranked player 2018-19 season (9 cats total season value). Stop it, just stop it

You know what's cute?  Pulling #'s out of your a** to bolster your argument, lol. 

Here is Nurk's last full season (age 24), before he went nuclear during the bubble and elevated his game to elite status.

Nobody is disputing Brown is a great player and sorry if throwing a wet blanket on your sell-high campaign, but it is evident he is due for some regression ROS.  Acting like Kemba's return has no baring on JB's value comes off as a little ignorant, but whatever.

The next season he was propelled to be better then Jokic.

Nope its not sustainable, but the guy is an elite competitor and i cant see him scoring less than 24PPG this year given the fact that he has really nobody to compete with in his position.

Well what can I say... ?  U're in a s h i t t y league obviously

 

Yeah I disagree.  Not sure what leagues you're playing in but if Nurk is getting traded for Brown then yikes.  We are literally in week 3

I'm holding him outta spite at this point and not even looking at other options just to see if he will dig himself outta this mess

and I hope the blazers don't make the play in tournament since it obvious they'll never learn with what stotts is doing rn...they just suck

Nurk owners mad AF in here LOL

Imagine spending a 2nd round pick on him and drafting him over the likes of Vuc or Sabonis..hah

 

Sabonis never a second round pick lol. Agree on Vuc if Nurkic was picked over him or even Drummond that is bad

Sabonis was most definitely a 2nd rounder. Agree with Vuc and Drummond. Regardless, Nurk should be a beast this season.

i drafted nurk in a pts league with the 2nd pick of the 4th round, i took sabonis 3 picks earlier in the 3rd round. i think his adp was around 38 - 40? so early 4th round. no, sabonis was not a 2nd rounder and neither was nurkic in yahoo leagues...based on adp.

Probably plays in a league where unless the name is recognizable everything is vetoed 

I play in a league where Nurkic doesnt exist in the 2nd and 3rd round.

Interesting I play on fantrax. Sabonis was 2nd rounder and Nurk was 3rd. Just looked on yahoo and you are right about their ADP’s on that site. Crazy

if u're referring to me... I ain't mad at all blood. Yes a little bit disappointed, but that's all... Nurk was my 3rd round guy (no Sabonis, no Vooch, no Ayton, no Bam)...
And yes it's getting to my nerves when someone talks crazy s h i t lies. Guy @Snatch took away from Nurkic like 30 places worth rankings in the 2018/19 season he was talking about.
ffuuuuck

same, most of these guys werent available (only sabonis) and i did what i did, i was fascinated by him in the bubble and thats why i took him, im still fascinated by the chemistry dame and nurk have (similar to jokara and jamal/rondo and ad/boogie etc) but its sad they are not running it as much as previous seasons

The Nurk threads are like this every year.

They are probably in love with the idea where Nurk reaches 20/15/1.6/2.2 on 55%/85%, so they gamble away their picks reaching for him in the 2nd and early 3rd round.

But then, the reality kicks in.

which reality exactly? im still fine with 15-10-4 with a couple of stocks which basing on his previous years in portland is pretty achieveable and seeing they cannot win without him, im fine betting on him til the end of season...in a good setup, you’re going to be just fine with nurk

**** happens, panic meter goes up and 16 pages later we’re here listening to you gloat about how nurk is a piece of **** and sucks...

guess what, he’s a (fat) piece of **** that sucks (currently) and everyone here knows that

Back to actual Nurk talk. I've watched every game, and drafted him highly. Nurk was far more involved last night than before. He is able to play better defense, in particular. He is getting his mobility back. 

If I had to guess, I bet he has lost 10-15 pounds since December 22.

Steps in the right direction.

I 100% agree...and again, I say, this thread is bringing me flashbacks of early Jokic thread last year (And Jokic was first rounder + his first months of games were worse). Literally same exact conversation. I have no doubt by end of season he's a top 30 player.
