If you've been waiting patiently for De'Anthony Melton to get a shot, all it took was a 36-9 1st Q against the Kings for him to get some extended run.

He responded with 21 points on 12 shots and led the Suns with a +24 in a double digit loss.


*but he can't shoot*
*the Lakers have enough guards*
*he's not ready for NBA defense*

Also, Suns fans are morons and don't deserve to watch the kid play for their team. I really hope he can get out of there.

I'm just trying to figure out why so many teams passed up on him.

Jevon Carter Dazzles in NBA Debut

Quote:
Former West Virginia point guard Jevon Carter finally received his shot, making his NBA debut on Saturday night for the Memphis Grizzlies. The rookie wasted no time making an impression, either, coming in with his team down more than twenty and helping bring the score back to single digits. Carter did that by playing tenacious defense (two steals and a block) and also scoring the basket, finishing with 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting. He was then awarded the Grizzlies' player of the game.

Jevon Carter pesters Chris Paul, James Harden in solid NBA debut for Memphis Grizzlies

Quote:
“He is very active, he plays his butt off, he is everywhere on the floor," Harden said. "He did an unbelievable job pressing me and Chris up the floor, creating some defense and offense. He was very active.”

Carter Defensive Highlights vs. Houston

guess those claims of him not being able to defend at the NBA level may have been a bit off....

Anybody been watching the Knicks and Mitchell Robinson? I heard he had a good start to the year but noticed his numbers are quite underwhelming. He’s a young prospect with tons of potential and im curious what people have seen from him.

Deandre Ayton with 33 PTS (16-for-20), 14 REBS, 4 STL and 1 BLK in a season-high 39 MIN against the Nuggets. Incredible how productive he's been given the number of touches he gets. He's now shooting 69% at the rim, 2nd to only Giannis among players with over 220 attempts.

YMMV, but Ayton's a worthy #1 pick and clear ROY in most years. The 2018 draft just happens to be a rare year. The defense and jumper remain works in progress, but he's going to be a scoring efficiency monster for many years to come

This will go down as one of the best draft classes in NBA history.

Mitchell Robinson is posting an insane (and no doubt unsustainable in bigger minutes) BPM of 6.5 at age 21.

2nd round pick Jalen Brunson tearing it up to end the season. If Dallas can move up, retain their pick, and draft Jarrett Culver, they could be back in playoff contention pretty quick depending on Porzi's health.

You're telling me the one year we didn't have any high picks is the one year where half the rookies are obvious future all stars

To be fair, they also passed on a bunch of productive late-1st/2nd round picks to get Moe and Bonga, too.

Yeah, it's pretty easy to get a good read on strong draft classes.

Mitchell Robinson blocked a shot on Wednesday against Utah to break Patrick Ewing's franchise record for most consecutive games with a block as a rookie. Robinson, the Knicks' 2018 second-round pick, has blocked a shot in 29 straight games.

Could have had Melton and Robinson.
