    Game record is still 11 IIRC.

    Tatum got the bag(5 years, $195 million)

    DD was the other one that jumped right off the page. He finds a way to suck while covering the easiest covers. As you note, unsurprising.

    Gotta admire Booker taking on so many tough assignments when he sucks on D so badly.

    Side note on those--both were fouls imo. Brad needs to hire an theater major as an assistant coach, so our guys learn how to sell calls better. Every game, TL seems to tighten his grasp of team defense. I think that he is now within the middle of the bell curve. I've been hard on him, but...

    But it could be as simple as wanting to bottom out further and have more picks. I love LeVert too. It's a head scratcher.

    That's my thought too, and guessing theirs. Someone to dream on the good Oladipo and not how he has been lately. Some contender might see him as the missing piece. We all saw how thin some teams got in the bubble.

    They have to be betting that someone gives them something for VO at the deadline. His play has been pretty damn spotty, but it only takes one partner.

    Jaylen Brown's 2020-21 Season

    We are. And I agree with you and others that these physical hurdles are the likely causes for dropoffs in play. I'm also saying that a ninth year pro like Beal is likely to have superior physical and mental stamina than 4th and 5th year players, especially guys who have gone deep into the...

    Jaylen Brown's 2020-21 Season

    Yeah I hear you. The contrast was there for me to see too. But Brad is in his 9th year and didn't have to learn how to carry a team until John Wall died. He's a pro's pro, like Butler et al. I expect more clock punching efficiency out of Beal than guys on their rookie deals. whether...

    Jaylen Brown's 2020-21 Season

    Yeah no argument here. The timing is real. Just saying that some regression from his hot start isn't surprising anyway, and I'm the biggest Jaylenstan there is.

    Sorry for the fanboy drive-by post, but I have to thank you for your elegant prose. "Couldn't defend Kuzma to a roomful of Laker fans" hit me right in the G spot.

    Could have just been a regression/ball-luck month too, but I'm right there with you on babying JB. Both he and JT look pretty fatigued lately. Carrying the team will do that to you, Kemba's recent resurgence notwithstanding. Nevermind battling injury and evil virus.

    Kemba 2021: The Jour-knee Begins

    I don't understand why a message like this ("if you guys play 30minutes together, we won't be able to get each of you enough shots") is hard to swallow. If the starter thing is that import, then Brad needs to quick sub guys at 5min on some kind of rotation. Edit: Or what pjheff said

    He could be right though. My guess is Butler, but Booker wouldn't be surprising.
