I remain a huge Dragan Bender fan.

Me too, but he's a project...

The shot is good, passing's very good, and he's going to be a tremendous defensive weapon. I'm excited to see what he becomes.

After watching a bunch of 19 year-olds and guys trying to make rosters, it is very refreshing to watch Mason, Jackson, and Hield.

Man, I'm not sure Ball could look much worse than tonight. Can't hit crap and outside of a few good passes, he's had downright terrible decision-making and shot selection.
Lavar ain't going to be talking much after that game.  Really ugly.

Don't see why Vegas and others think Ball is the favorite for ROY.  He was in a perfect situation at UCLA with 4 good shooters on the court.  He's not going to have that with the Lakers.

Yet he was still the first person interviewed after the game  ::) Ridiculous.

I'm still a big Chriss fan. The kid has so much potential. He actually reminds me of a less offensively skilled Morris brother.

Thorneell reminds me of young Joe Johnson.

Lol, no.  Thornwell is what Celtics fans hoped Marcus Smart would be, imo.  I still can't believe that they got him and Jawun Evans, and in the second round, no less, but then again, Jerry West, so yeah. *facepalm*

Just reached the hotel in New Jersey (vacation trip) and caught last glimpses of the game.

Ball bricked some 3's and what not lol.

Then after the game, ESPN hyping him up to Curry and Ramona "Lakers Lady" Shelbourne says Ball had a fantastic game despite the shooting, which may be fair (like the lob pass to Ingram and assists), but I mean, lets be real, if this is someone else, she would probably label them as a bust already.  :laugh:

Hey, someone from ESPN has to try to polish that turd, and who better than the Lakers Lady, herself, lol ;D?

Fox has no range whatsoever. He is also not a very good playmaker. He doesn't impress me. His ceiling is 6th man

The low release coming back to bite him.

he has a slow, flawed, and predictable release

Jackson looks surprised by how athletic everyone is. He's use to being the most athletic guy on the court...
