What is interesting is that the next decade may be headlined with non-American born players. Giannis. Luka. Which American born player is next?


Ingram


He’s not getting love because they’re losing,.. but I think he’s got next.

I hate those 0-2 trips to the line late in games. But other than that he's been great.

I was pretty shocked with Lebrons decision making late in that game. Up 7 with 50 seconds left and he drove and kicked to Danny Green for a very quick shot. Have no clue what Lebron was thinking there when the right move is to use the entire shot clock.

LeBron is tied with Westbrook for the most triple-doubles this season. He has six.

Luka is leading with seven.

With him playing more defense he usually keeps himself fresher by dumping it off to AD for some plays, but with AD not scoring as well and everyone else not being able to playmake and handle the ball with the Magic defense he needed to be more active there.

And the Magic was picking him up full court, Rondo's injury hurt.

And he played 38 minutes.

We need another ball-handler

I wish Vogel would have him off the ball when he's playing with another point guard, especially if AD is on the bench.

Caruso was getting stripped at will when he drove into traffic. We really missed Rondo tonight

He has some ill advised passes at times but that comes with pretty much any elite passer.. it's going to happen sometimes..

on this specific play though i think it was actually just an incredibly heads up play by him and he was thinking pass to the corner but saw bradley cutting to the basket and changed his mind mid air and still delivered a perfect pass.

It also sparked an 8-0 run for the Lakers when the Magic were charging and had just tied the game. The Lakers wouldn't relinquish that lead.

Roleplayers play percentages but your superstars are there to make things happen when nothing's happening. Making a miracle basket, making a miracle pass, that's why they earn the max

“Incredibly ill-advised”? Hmm, oh, I see, now it makes sense. Haha.

I will say, first time I saw him go into the air to pass, I was like noo cmon. But I didn’t see what he saw.

That’s another thing with elite passers... what looks ill-advised in real-time to us mere mortals is just them playing 4D chess.

That and the turnovers. He's getting blocked a lot going to the rim as up late, too.

Most of his passes are on point.
That one was most certainly not.
No zip on it whatsoever. Bad pass that turned out great. It happens

That was a straight line pass that was out of reach to 4 nearby players.

Not sure if by zip you mean zipper? Then I agree. The ball had no zipper.
