    He can play, and he shoots with confidence. Could do a lot worse with a 15th man, I definitely hope he gets to stick around.

    If you squint, he looks like Svi.

    I thought Matt Ryan was a football player. I'm truly out of touch.

    will need to watch this game to get a better sense, but it was interesting to see ham say he might get the last roster spot.

    I haven't seen him yet, but he has a very melanin resistant name

    I'm assuming we have met our annual quota as usual

    :Shaqdisappointed:

    recognizing the league requirements of teams in major markets for what they are has nothing to do with my player preferences

    I'll like him if he doesn't suck ala Caruso

    I have ties in Chattanooga and follow their basketball. I'm familiar with Matt. He is under the radar because of bad timing from the Covid situation. He can shoot and doesn't lack confidence. He can also play well enough he isn't going to kill you to have him on the court. He might miss a few but once he sees that first one go in he can go crazy. I'm glad he got to show what he can do.

    I’d rather have this guy on a slump than Westbrick and Walker but we might choose between him and Swider or Pip Jr because to save money we like an open roster spot up to waiver time.

    I think we have to carry all 15 if we want to trade Westbrook at some point. His contract is so massive, it'll be a multiple for 1 deal. We may need to send super cheap talent along with him just to make the numbers work for both sides based upon roster requirements, etc. Just a theory anyways.

    Maybe Ham makes this work, and we extend Westbrook for 4 years 80 mil by the All Star break

    :Laugh:

    Well, he can shoot and that's what we need. He has the size to be a legit NBA player for sure. Here is his most recent pic, he does a bit of fashion too:

    Same... Unfortunately, the moniker Matty Ice, he has already too.

    I missed the last 2 games, I see he had a great night from 3 this last game but not so great the previous 2 (9-21 over 3 games played though due to the big game vs GSW) and does he do anything else? I looked, the 3 games played total he has 3 boards, 0 assists, 0 blocks, 0 steals. that ain't exactly stuffing the stat sheet. You got time to take 21 3's, you got time to grab a few boards. I suppose he's in the mold of Kyle Korver.

    What's weird is that we not only thought about the same thing, but picked the same image too, although yours is cropped. :)

    Too bad they canceled Constantine.
