Jack is the thorn in the side. Burke played well

Well in Jack's defense when he left the game we were leading by 7. But Idk, he's not part of my future and he's boring. I wanna develop players and have fun watching it at this point.

I think he looked really good, matter of fact both looked good..

Burke also looked in control out there..

Defense is sucking right now.. THJ is MIA on defense and doing some bonehead plays on offense..

You could see Frank, Mudiay and THJ switching between them with no problem, sadly you only see one of them playing some defense and obviously that was Frank..

Horny doing the right subs:

- Jack stars and play 5min.
- Frank and Mudiay play the rest of the fist and some second qrt minutes.
- Burke gets the rest of the second qrt with Lee and THJ.

Looks good to me..

Watching this game, Mudaiy and Frank together make me wanna draft Mikal Bridges. I can understand why they play Lance Thomas in those moments and can only imagine a guy who will probably defend just as well as him ...
...WHILE MAKING A GODDAMN JUMP SHOT!!!!

My goodness.

And also being athletic..........Lance is also a stiff.

At least with Mikal or Miles, both of those 2 Bridges are athletic speed freaks as well.

Jack played 8min so far........8 min too many for me.
I dont want Thomas playing at all.
Would rather Mudiay/Burke get some of Lee's mins
Would rather Kornet plays then KOQ

Oh and what's happening with Dotson? Either send him to the G League or play him

Mudiay's lob to Beasley is how I envision future high percentage set ups for KP that is lacking from Frank.

Perfectly okay with handing over the keys to Mudiay. Frank seems much more comfortable with shooting today today when he's already set and not busy dominating the ball.

We tank.........our current roster sucks outside of the young guys, so we'll need to make moves in the off-season to replace our vets with "QUICKER BODIES."

The trade for Mudiay and the calling up of Kornet and Hicks is basically pointing us in the direction we need to go. ATHLETIC

Our vets probably have decent b-ball IQ (minus Hardaway and Kanter), but they're slow and stiff that it doesn't matter how good they are at making the right read on defense........they will get beat due to their lack of quickness and foot speed.

As a point guard, you're correct.......he is out of control.

All the more reason why we use Mudiay as a "go-get it GUARD" on offense..........don't give Mudiay the full keys to the offense, just tell him to be like Wade/Oladipo and just get buckets.

The fact that Mudiay has playmaking skills under his belt should help generate ball movement without making him totally responsible for facilitating.......hence why we experimented playing him alongside Frank, who is better as a facilitator.
