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...

With that in mind, I'd try to point this out to any Nurk owners who you might be eyeballing for a buy low.

Back to Nurk, I think he should work his way back given the offseason he had (going back and forth to Bosnia), and these first few weeks acts as his preseason.

He will break out Sunday. He started the game well and was getting touches in the post until foul trouble happened

because they were force feeding him the ball.  Can he feast without being thrown the ball to every possession?

This fat bastard is killing me lol

And the crazy thing is that I should probably feel fortunate that he hasn't already injured himself being so damn overweight 

This slow start doesn't bother me. As long as this dude isn't injured and ready during my playoffs, I'll be happy.

Agreed. I'm actually happy about his early start, if he wasnt in foul trouble or limited minutes, he would have decent numbers. Give him some time. He will be top 50 by next month, you can quote me on that. Top 30 by end of year. I had Joker last year and im used to slow starts lol.

 

*Edit ( i drafted him in the 3rd round in 12 team as FYI)

His foul rate this year is actually lower than his career rate, and lower than what he's produced over the last two years. Makes me wonder if the decrease in defensive stats is in any way related to his attempting to avoid fouls and stay on the court. It's too early to draw conclusions, but if/when the defensive stats return, a higher foul rate could come with it.

The bigger issue, at least in my mind, is his offensive usage and free throw shooting. He's taking a career high percentage of shots from beyond the arc (where he's not very good), and a career low percentage of his shots from within 3 feet, which should be his bread and butter. After making 60% of his free throws during the preseason, he is down to 41.7% on the year. His success at the line in the bubble is a distant memory, and we can only hope he is closer to the 77.3% free-throw shooter we saw in 2018-19 and not the 61.2 shooter he was prior.

For now, his per 36 numbers in 9-cat leagues are 241st overall. He's got a lot of work to do.

Yeah good analysis. I do think the slow start from Dam doesn't help him too. Also, Mcollum seems to be balling out and not necessarily playing with Nurk well.

If he were putting up numbers like usual I would be dominating almost all my roto money leagues. Instead I'm just going to bench this pudgy bastard until he remembers how to play at the NBA level again. I'm getting a lot of low ball offers and I will not budge because I know he will bounce back to normal. I just hope he doesn't take his sweet time to do it.

I've gotten 3 or 4 low balls the last couple of days.  The closest thing to even being worth consideration was Bryant, and still wasn't tempted in the slightest.  Some of the offers have been pretty insulting lol..

Best one i got was Aldridge and Dillon Brooks. The others were pretty bad.

The Nurk thread is one of the funniest to read. Maybe even better then the AD one. 

Its a repetitive deja vu when you read the crazy preseason hype like:  "bruh hes 2nd round player" "top 30 dis year mark my wurds" "beter den jokic bruv quote me"

to cursing him in bosnian and serbian when reality kicks in.

Would you happen to have a photo of chunky Nurk so I can try to use it as another reason for the owner to trade him?

Obviously he is a buy low candidate, but I’m curious: what kind of trades have you seen involving him? Felt like I offered this guy a fair trade - my Gobert and Oubre for his Nurkic and MPJ and it was rejected. Redraft league. Has anyone managed to get a decent buy low trade going?

I've tried Horford + Fultz & Bryant + Fultz to no avail. Even tried Fox for Nurk straight up and got rejected so it could be just the owner being stingy.

I think I might trade Nurk for D. Mitchell

Or because the owner values Nurk more than you, who apparently doesn’t have high regards for Nurk’s abilities based on what you’re offering.  All of those offers are an easy, hard pass imo.

Think you’d end up regretting that.  Mitchell has never ranked top-50 over a full season.  His efficiency may go up with Conley commanding their offense well as the season progresses but he hasn’t shown us anything that indicates he is ready to elevate his game to the next level yet.

 I'm debating tho... just sooooooo tired of Ayton, J.Collins and Nurk doing s h i t t y things for my team night by night, by night... by night
