    Unwritten Rules of the Boards

    I've kind of wondered about that myself at times.

    Josh had a couple "what were you thinking" passing turnovers, but overall displayed a willingness to share the ball in a team first manner. I liked what I saw, but I'm not not sure he's gonna "cure what ails you".

    Why do you need it? Are you lost?

    Watched the second half of the Hustle game against the South Bay Lakers. Funny thing seeing Stockton and Payton on the same team. Of course it was their kids, but Payton looked like a good defender just like his dad. The announcers mentioned that four of the top ten G-League all-time scorers were in the game. Stockton was number four, I think, Marquis Teague was in there somewhere. Matt Mooney, when he is playing, reminds me of one of the players in the movie Hoosiers. Dusty Hannahs looks a bit pudgy and out of shape. Melton was the scoring star with 27 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 blocks, but he did have 6 turnovers. Josh and Yuta both added 22 points. All three of them hit four threes each. Bruno looked lost. He had 8 points in the first half and didn't score in the second. John Konchar did not play due to a calf injury. Yuta's defense looked good and he handled the ball well.

    After looking at their roster I'm curious about G-League roster size. Considering that of the 15 players they're showing on their roster right now, three of them are actually on the big team roster, plus two more are two-way contract guys, that only leaves 10 regular Hustle players. How many can they carry on the roster?

    What makes you think we'll send Bruno or De'Anthony down to the Hustle? EDIT: Just checked their roster and saw they were already there. When did that happen?

    Do we already have enough legit scorers?

    Maybe I'm being slow, but what do you mean by this? Are you saying that's good or bad? I know Jonas could score more with higher usage, but that might just mean someone else's scoring goes down. Clarke looks great, but as a rookie I'm not sure about increasing his share of the scoring load. Is his level of play sustainable? I hope so.

    True. I've got a pretty good handle on geography. I don't know why I went with Croatia, I know Marko is from Serbia. I wasn't that far off on the distance though. About 1050 miles from Belgrade to Vilnius by road.

    Yeah, I know that. I'm just being just as boneheaded. Don't know what I was thinking. Gee, let's try Belgrade to Vilnius.

    If he can defend, that would be a huge help. We have shown that we can score the basketball (a little more consistency would be nice, but we are a young team), but our real problem is defense. Josh does have length and athleticism. I hope he can make it work.

    A bit of an exaggeration, just under 700 miles straight line, just under 1000 miles by road (Zagreb to Vilnius), but yeah, way, way different.

    19 with his FT.

    Maybe not, but I'm sure liking it now. I think he may continue to post a good overall percentage, but I doubt that the three-point pct will be. He may be much better than advertised from the arc though.

    Long Read on Taylor Jenkins by the Ringer

    I heard it. He wasn't talking about Jenkins. He was talking about Malone.
