    He’s a very “cerebral player”

    I'm with you all. I'm not even mad, it's just... crazy. :D

    I kind of love it though. This team is going to be an absolute menace to literally everyone, fans and players and parents and people who don't like basketball. Spectrum Sportsnet is trying to see how quickly they can put together a budget to just follow around specific players.

    I'm not trying to be funny. This is an honest question.

    Does he play defense even moderately well?

    People already hate us so we might as well give them an actual reason to.

    Did Bron signed his contract? Serious question. He had to deal with JR, now he has Beas, McGee and Lance, eff me, i would show up to every training and game drunk like a pig.
    Btw. Is Beasley wearing a watch on his leg/ankle?
    SHOOT ME NOW...

    I'm honestly wonderin if Space Jam 2 is Bron playing with the Monstars as opposed to playing against them. We honestly have a group of guys that have that mentality.

    Dirty Dozen vibe for sure...we cleary both loved Bullyius for his style of play...not always the smartest decisions, but you just loved his ability to Smash to the cup ...this team now has it in spades.

    The only Defensive metric in which he isn't average-to-really-bad is DWS where he's a 1.5 otherwise his DRtg is 110, his DPBM is -0.4, his BLK% and STL% are negligible.

    I didn't watch him play much so I don't know what the eye test says, but from when I have watched him play, no he doesn't play much defense.

    We’re gonna be the new era bad boy pistons. We got dogs left and right. Kobe would’ve loved this team.

    So since Carmelo signed that extension with OKC before the trade, we literally have the poor man's Melo? "Super cool Beas"???

    Luke must be going nuts just laughing inside his head picturing the practices and handling all the personalities. And I would BET feeling that he is the kind of a coach that can handle it. Just like Riles in MI had Spoelstra's back in the Heatles era Magic Johnson himself and Rob will have Luke's back.

    If they don't as a group, minus Rondo, come to practice high, yes, we can be very effective. It reminds me of the goons from the Adam Sandler version of The Longest Yard other than Space Jam.

    Basically exactly what we did. We got a cheaper, younger Carmelo.

    We got the better player.

    Carmelo is the poor man’s Beasley.
