    So What Else Do We Need?

    No...
  4. Hollinger discussed the MG trade a little on a podcast. Marc was a high second draft pick but was stashed for a year and was the MVP in his Euro league before the Pau/Marc trade. He was clearly was better than his 48th pick and was an important part of the Pau trade.
  5. The problem with Jaren's shot is the low release making it very blockable in the midrange.

    First!

    What happened to the board? Was it compromised? I noticed the SSL certificate was for the wrong domain, so I didn't click through the SSL warning.

    The disrespect!

    It's hard to separate out all of the revenue streams, but Fortnite made around 2.4 billion in revenue in 2018 -- so 200 million / mo. Since the game is free to play I'm assuming that most came from microtransactions. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/gaming/news/fortnite-earned-annual-revenue-game-history-2018/

    Yeah, the entire video game market has changed. Many games are free and only make money from microtransactions. Fortnite makes 100s of millions per month on just microtransactions.

    Anyone know what the long term prognosis is for an injury like this? Could it possibly be chronic?
  10. Yeah, I wish the Grizz would play injured players more.

    Jenkins system has not,is not and will never work.

    Jaren's play has been very volatile. I do think it's reasonable to wait a little longer to see how he settles into this new role. I'd say by AllStar break we'll have a pretty good sense of how he's doing this season. I'd really like to see if his 3pt% continues to maintain as we get a larger sample.

    I think I've finally understood Chip's coded message to Jaren. He wants him to follow in Ayton's footsteps, if you catch my drift.

    What does this have to do with Luka?

    When was he actually cleared to workout because of his injury? I don't think the issue is hours worked in the gym, more one of focus and selection of skills to work on. The coaching turnover probably didn't help this. I think he has improved some in ways, but they aren't quite usable in game. For example, subjectively I think his handle has improved. I've seen him pull some dribble moves that he couldn't do last year. It just isn't good enough yet. But if he keeps developing this skill, in a couple of years it could really expand his offensive game. I think he still has a lot of upside to eventually be a perimeter oriented big that can shoot a high percentage of 3s, take the bigs guarding him off the dribble, and can exploit mismatches in the post. I'm more disappointing in his defense than offense at this point.
