Durant will be out through All-Star Break.
Good for Domantas Sabonis.
Durant could only come back as a 3 & D guy and they’d be impossible to outscore let alone adding a top-10 all around offensive player ever.
Melo Ball has 10 points in the first quarter. He's guarding Oubre, who has 13 points, 10 of them against Ball, all 10 on dunks. Ball switched out onto Steph once who beat him downcourt for a layup. He got caught another time on Wiggins, who backdoored him for a dunk. So of the 29 the Warriors have so far, 14 of them have been against Melo.
He made a 3 over Steph and started woofing, then Oubre ran downcourt got the pass and dunked while Melo wondered where his man was. Next time down Melo drove and missed a runner looking for a foul they ran it down and Wiseman got a dunk. Melo ran back, shot an airball 3 against oubre who then blew kisses and surprisingly didn' get a T.
Draymond has 8 assists in the first.
Don't get me wrong Melo is going to be a very good player but he is so bad on defense right now it's not funny. And Curry only has 2 points they're using him as a decoy or screener on most of their baskets.
Grant wanted to be the man, and he got that in Detroit. It wasn't really that Denver let him walk. They made him big money offers but he wasn't going to move ahead of Jokic and Murray without having to really earn it on the floor, which he hadn't. So the idea Denver let him walk is a little.off.
That's fair. How about, the Nuggets really miss Jerami Grant.
Oubre is starting to ball for that team. If he finds his role there and Klay is able to be Klay-ish next year, with another year of seasoning under Wisemen’s belt, that team can be right back to contender status with Stef/Klay/Oubre/Draymond/Wisemen starting. And they might have a great pick from Minnesota to dangle in trade to get even better.
He's going to be a free agent. His return to form is a bit of a double edged sword for them. They already have an insane 160+ million in salary committed for next year, it's going to be next to impossible for them to retain him unless he takes a serious discount.
that franchise will spend the money, unless he gets something ludicrous like a MAX deal from someone.
The Bulls-Raptors game has been postponed.
I thought you might enjoy this.
Ah. I wanted Sabonis so badly from that draft. But of course, if we had drafted him, we would have been roundly criticized for reaching and not trading down to get him.
He might have been better than Bender and Chriss.
Only at the time of the draft, not once he showed who he is.
True but we were a weak team and a poorly run franchise, who knows how many chances he would have been given to show what he was capable of. He had a horrible rookie season for OKC, that might have been the end of him had he been playing for Phoenix. He took off shortly after being traded to Indiana the next year but that was also a much better run franchise than the Suns were.
