He has been in, but he hasn't gotten a carry yet.

Looks like Karl is really trying to drive out DeMarcus Cousins.

The Kings are a mess right now. I feel bad for Stauskas.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||The Knicks should have||
The Knicks should have drafted Mudiay. He has potential to be a franchise player and could be quite a player in the triangle.

According to his ESPN page, Langford committed to MSU today.
|26 weeks 16 hours ago||I think his game||
I think his game translates better to the NBA than college. In college he was asked to be a ball dominant main scoring option, and he struggled a bit. In the NBA, his ability to pass and handle the ball are a plus at his position, and he can play off the ball more. He can be like a Jamal Crawford type where he can be a microwave guy and can occasionally run the point.

Devin Booker can't play any defense.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Kentucky's coaching is||
Kentucky's coaching is terrible. All they do is try to get the ball in the post, and if that action is denied, they have one player at a time try to freestyle their way into a bucket occassionally with the help of a screen. They rely on individual talent rather than team play.

Calipari is a great salesman because having the best chance at winning a national championship often outweighs getting reduced minutes and numbers.
|31 weeks 3 days ago||Fouling someone is tougher||
Fouling someone is tougher than it seems, because as soon as you reach to put hands on them and make contact, they will throw up the shot and try to draw three free throws.

They are in the bonus.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||His 2 foul policy has not||
His 2 foul policy has not been an issue year in and year out because in the last two years we have had the depth to afford benching starters for a couple minutes. This year not so much.

Having Wilson and Walton will also be nice.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||While the zone is not||
While the zone is not working, many of these threes came during man defense as well because Michigan is not disciplined and is helping off of players one pass away.
|31 weeks 6 days ago||They need to go on another||
They need to go on another run to end the half instead of just trading baskets because they are probably going to have another second-half offensive drought.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||We might have won that game||
We might have won that game against Kentucky if we had a McGary/CWebb type.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||They don't have the player||
They don't have the player who is talented enough to take over games down the stretch. LeVert had been that player before his injury. He took over against Villanova in that comeback and in the win against Oregon his shot wasn't falling but he got to the free throw line. No one on this roster can consistently create shots for themselves and others, especially in the clutch.

I think he would prefer to make sure that he can have MAAR out there in the clutch over Dakich and Lonergan.

Oh god our history with Wisconsin scares me here.

Was that Chris Christie cheering for the Cowboys?

Doyle is going to miss at least one.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||We have missed at least 2||
We have missed at least 2 layups, 3 or 4 easy open 12 footers, and several open threes. To make things worse we have missed the front end of a 1 and 1. Then they start to settle for difficult shots to compound things.

Hammons hit him on the wrist. It should've been an and-1.

Villanova just lost to Seton Hall 66-61 in OT.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||He hasn't really fallen off,||
He hasn't really fallen off, he just hasn't improved as much as we thought he would. His teammates poor shooting doesn't help as he has no space at all to get inside. The big men who set his screens won't roll or provide him outlets or rescreen when the initial action doesn't work. It's hard for anyone to succeed in that situation.
