    Jaren and Justise Still Recovering, Will Not Be Ready for Season Start

    ­čśé­čśé­čśé I seriously thought you were being sarcastic until I realized your were serious. Dillon started 74 games on a team that won 22 games and had about what 500 players on the roster because of all of the injuries. In your attempt to call me close minded, you totally ignored the fact that I said that Bane could start if we have a lot of injuries and/or are horribly bad which is why Dillon started. Looking at history and seeing that it is rare for a #30 pick to come in and start right away for any team is not being close minded. It's acknowledging history and past facts. College BBall is different from the NBA which is different from FIBA. The rules are different from college, players are bigger stronger faster. You don't just come in and take over. Ask Adam Morrison. If it were that simple, every college star should come right into the NBA and be a star right? I swear, ever since I have been posting on this board (17-18 years?) people seem to latch on to these low first rounders or second rounders and just hope beyond hope that we somehow catch lightning in a bottle and time and time and time again from Troy Bell to Sam Young to Josh Selby to Tony Wroten to Jarrell Martin to what was dude's name, like Lawrence Johnson or something from FSU who was supposed to be this enforcer. I get the enthusiasm, but history is not on their side, sure there are exceptions and I hope our picks turn out to be exceptions, but history isn't on their side.

    Bane has not played 1 minute of NBA ball and he's not going to get a summer league. It will be a tough adjustment for most of these rookies. Then, it's not like the guy was a lottery pick. He was the last pick in the first round which basically makes him a second rounder cause at that point, it just depends on who has a pick and what they are looking for. Lastly, college shooting doesn't always translate to NBA shooting not matter how deep they were shooting. There are so many other variables. Let's give the guy at least a half of a season to adjust, I don't see him starting this season unless there are massive injuries or we just go straight to the toilet and are 0-35.

    Moving the needle

    So many variables between now and then, it's like throwing darts in the dark. A lot of teams made moves this off-season and a lot will regret it and players will want to be moved. I'm thinking we will make a trade and absorb the salary of a disgruntled player or one of these failed moves where they didn't fit the team's system. Too many names and way too early for me to speculate on names.

    Moving the needle

    Well, it depends on what you mean by moving the needle Moving the needle where? The playoffs? There's no 1 player who we can obtain that can do that. Playoff contenders? There's definitely is not 1 player that we can obtain that can do that. Picking up 3-5 more wins but still missing the playoffs? There may be a handful of guys but most of these moves (depending on who we give up) would only make us marginally better but why would we want to do that? That's why I have always been Team Stand Pat. It makes no sense to make moves for people who will only make you marginally better at this point and may even reduce your chances at getting a top 3 pick in the draft. I know people are tired of losing and want to win now but realistically, there is no 1 move that would move the needle for us. We are in a great position to have a young team that will compete every night (but probably lose a lot of games). They learn and then we get a top 5 pick in the 2021 draft to get another star. If we're really bold, we may package one of our extra future 1st round picks to try and move up and get 2 top 10 picks. I'm extra stoked about the summer of 2021. This season is a throw away season to me. Heck, Justise and JJJ won't even start the season and JJJ may be out for an extended period of time. Why rush it. No need to give up current assets or future assets and take on long term salary just to win 3 more games while compromising our draft position next year. Makes no sense. It's very shortsighted, that's some Chris Wallace type bs.

    TIERS - Western Conference - post draft and free agency

    I'd take Zion and Ingram over KAT and Russel. I don't think too highly of Edwards but overall they probably do have more talent and a ton of former firsts but it's mostly guards (Beasley, Okogie, Culver, Rubio)

    Hulu & YouTube TV

    Get it how you live playboy. To each his own. I'm fine with it in my entertainment budget. It's true. I mean, you can google it. The only streaming service with Fox Sports Regional is AT&T Now (formerly DirectTV Now) probably due to their larger deal with AT&T/DirecTV or maybe they just paid the higher fee that SInclair is charging. I had DTV for years and then tried Sling TV for a few months and didn't like it so I went back for about 3 years and then I switched to YouTubeTV last year. I have to say, I have no desire to switch back. Too much flexibility. YTTV had the most complete sports package at the time. This doesn't hurt me much as I don't watch much of the local FSRN. It's way cheaper than DTV but I didn't like they fact it increased rates $15 when they added the Viacom channels to YTTV. I Well, the governor of Tennessee said that he would only do a shutdown if the Holy Spirit told him to do so. I spoke to the Holy Spirit, there are no plans for a shutdown in Tennessee.

    TIERS - Western Conference - post draft and free agency

    I would look at the tiers as the following and this is based upon what we know today barring any unforeseen injuries, assuming everyone is healthy: Playoff locks: Lakers, Clippers, Nuggets, Jazz, Blazers, Dallas Playoff contenders: Phoenix, Warriors, Houston (if they stay as currently constructed), Pelicans Outside Looking in: Minny, Grizz, OKC, Kings, SAS So 6 locks, then 4 teams 7-10 including teams that will be in the play in. The other 5 teams including us.........S.O.L.

    I think we are on the bottom tier, regardless of how any tiers fall out, and I'm fine with that for this season.
