    And this is coming from a guy who agrees with what advanced metrics had to say about Poeltl. Folks are coming around now to his contributions to the team because the counting stats are catching up. Those three men in the Ahmaud Arbery trial were not found guilty because of one piece of evidence, but multiple. Reasoning skills need to come into play when interpreting stats.

    He still clogs the driving lanes and is a total non-en y for the defense to worry about. They don’t even try to guard him when he gets the ball 10 feet from the basket and just double the person he does his little hand off to. He also doesn’t run towards the rim or get in peoples way during fast breaks. Like if the dude would just hustle more and get in people’s way in the break then our guys could have more easy opportunities. For all the good Poeltl does he just isn’t a starting center on a good team in today’s NBA (save for the Nets)

    Ok? And he posted a -18 and they lost by 25 to Maine??? Not winning basketball . . . still would take him over Forbes, though.

    They could be a bad team. You can have good (for league standards) players on bad teams. PLus minus stats can be very misleading. as a bad player on a good team could verry easily have a better +- stat then a good player on a bad team.

    I would be Very Happy if Primo had numbers close to his - Yeah I understand that it’s his 3rd year and Primo is just so young but still if you don’t dominate G League usually means you don’t belong in NBA

    You touch on the 2 year experience edge, and then completely discount it. You shouldn’t. Primo will be fine, he’s just not ready yet. He’s basically a year younger than Sammich was when he got here, and just as inexperienced. The difference is between the ears. Next year, Primo will be in the rotation. The year after, he’ll be a starter.

    More fire in the belly after the cut, yes. But a cut that shouldnt have happened on the basis of talent. If anyone should have been cut, it was Bryn Forbes.

    The camels back didnít break from the last straw alone. Video of his early first year in Austin shows the same . Exasperation at a missed shot or a no call delaying his transition back on D, which never got above a slow trot, hanging his teammates out to dry, 4 on 5. His laziness isnít a new development or a one time thing.
    Sounds like DeRozan and Forbes

    Yeah, but you have suggested we are tanking this year, so who cares if the production is a mirage? Also, he never more than one Bubble game got minutes. He very well could carve out an NBA role.

    The thing is, we’re STEALTH tanking. If you give minutes to a player who never runs back on D, you blow the cover. All of our guys try hard and give effort.

    NY is treading water, just above .500. Why aren’t they calling him up? Are they mean? Are they mismanaging the situation?

    NY barely knows him. We already invested two years in him. Huge difference.

    As for STEALTH tanking, that seems awkward to imply and impossible to prove. But I admit, the team is likely trying to find some sort of non-commital middle ground like usual.

    As for Luka playing, his lack of D seems like a weak criteria for him not to play even for a team in “stealth” mode as you suggest.

    Defense, other than not getting back in transition, is not his weakness. His offense is jacked. He canít shoot the 3 or handle the ball as well as he thinks he can.

    If he canít shoot the 3 ball in the NBA at least at a 33-34% rate, he wonít have an NBA career. The modern game requires it.

    He just has enough holes in his game to not tolerate effort.

    Malik Hairston tore up the G-League too. He also wasn't an asshole.

    Samanic did this before. Wait until he has to hustle, play defense and be accountable.

    Don't understand all the hate for Samanic in this thread. The guy is balling and he's on our payroll.

    All this G-League dominance is sure to translate to the NBA, this is what I've been told to justify Primo being in the G League. The Knicks got a steal!
