THT does good. THT does bad


More bad than good unfortunately.


he’s basically why we will lose


This didn't age well


not at all and I was hard on him ... he cuts his turnovers by 2/3 and we blow them out


Kid forced to play PG against one of the league's best defenses and best defensive minds, and doesnt even have a full season under his belt.

The cajones on him tho...good lord. He was like, "I'm making this, up yours Rose."


If he's not a point, he's an undersized 2 guard. That isn't gonna go far in this league.

He's built like a tank and has a 7'1 wingspan as an "undersized" SG. He's an unprecedented freak. No one knows how good he can be.


Preach on Baron!

And oh yea...

has balls of steel!

Yea, AD said it tightened up for him. He doesnt seem concerned.

It's ridiculous how good he is at his age. Nobody seems to remember how ass BI was at 20 years old.


Naw, THT is not that good for his age. He's only ok.


Oh, I see, a troll. Got it!

There's no real gap between THT and BI in their second seasons. No guarantee THT gets a jumper, but if he does, it's over.

The injury bug has been the Lakers bane for a while. We're going into the post season banged up

Dont wanna get too excited but man, not too many 20 year olds, with not even 1 season under their belt, in OT in a critical game for playoff positioning, would have the cajones to take that shot as if it was no biggie...kid clearly felt it was going in.

Right in Rose's face too. Made me happy.

If he’s a Shannon Brown level player that’s more than enough for this team.

I would be good with trading THT. Traded all of our youth away, might as well keep it going. THT has a lot of work for improvement and I don't know how much work ethic he has.

Have you ever been right about basketball?


Yes. I don't know about his work ethic and he has a lot of improvement to go.

So much hate on this board for him during the game, I was thinking he would need to hit a game winning 3 to redeem himself. He scored 8 points in OT, and did it.

I'm not even counting last year as a season...BI actually played a full rookie season in the NBA. To me, this is THT's first real NBA season.

As I recall, when BI started getting solid at attacking the rim he was always going to his right - I recall Draymond calling him out on that.

Now BI has developed his game so he goes either way.

From what I hear about THT (always asking questions, etc), sounds like he will have the work ethic to take his game another level.

Yea...I honestly dont get it. Its ok to say "eesh, bad play by THT" or whatnot but going off on the kid...he's being asked to play PG against a really good D that was totally under the belief they could make him screw up all the time. All our other guys were out. Major kudos to the kid for helping us pull it out and not get down on himself.

Kudos to Wes Matthews on a great all around effort as well. His putback w/ 3 seconds left was instrumental in putting us in a position to win in OT.

I dont think you would know a decent conversation if it hit you in the face. Now, smarty pants smack talk, yes, thats up your alley.

Will need the work ethic to take his game to another level*** We don't know how his work ethic is, but we know he doesn't have that good of a shot, doesn't shoot with his left hand, at all. Makes careless decisions, etc.... Decision making will come with game play though, but his IQ doesn't seem that good, right now.

People who hate on THT smack their dog because they don't understand potty training in just one session, or even worse, scream at their kids in front of everybody for making a bad
play in a little league game.

Wait do people really think THT at 20 and through 68 games isn’t impressive?

He’s going to be a monster. Everyone wants him in a trade lol.
