Around half way into this season, I’d seen enough and declared that Chicago’s problems stemmed largely from giving Derek Rose 32 minutes a game:
While it’s terribly sad to say, the fact is that nothing even remotely close to ‘MVP Derek Rose’, let alone ‘competent starting point guard Derek Rose’ is ever coming back. Just ask Penny Hardaway. While it’s not all Rose’s fault, the sooner they move him aside – and get cranking with Jimmytime – the better the team will be.
A lot of the Love trade talk has centred around Boston. The Dunkyard looks at an alternative.
Andrew Bogut’s latest injury reminded me of the time he talked smack about Luc Longley before getting drafted in 2005:
Here is this year’s all-idiot lineup of teams who won’t be drafting in the first round this year round due to brain flatulence:
- Brooklyn – lost the no. 3 pick to Boston in the Garnett/Pierce trade. It’s ok, I’m sure they can still do something with the no. 55 pick.
How old is he? Can he play? Will he even be drafted? Is he the Dunkyard’s cult hero in waiting? *
Here’s Jabari’s February 2016 and March 2016 to date. It definitely looks like he’s figured something out, with some big scoring efforts in there.
Steph did all this and Washington let him. The 11 threes aside, some of layups are just plain ridiculous.
ESPN called it a ‘vintage performance‘. However, when you’re a 33% career three point shooter – and shooting 27.3% on threes and 35.3% overall on the current season – different conclusions come to mind.
