    Anybody see Zion gassed the other day?

    Ingram isn't anything special either.  Not sure what hype is about him?

    I didn't watch the Pelicans.

    Brandon Ingram had a pretty good 2019-2020 Season. 

    He's only played 2 games for this Summer's 2020 AAU Event.

    I'm starting to agree with this.

    I had a discussion on FB with some brain surgeons telling me that Zion put on muscle, the quarantine, blah blah blah.  I said he was in quarantine not lockdown.  He could have done some cardio.

    Ingram has been terrific.   He’s right there with Jayson Tatum as good young players.  Ingram’s better on offense. Tatum’s better on defense.     

    Zion— i usually cant tell when he’s tired because he runs so weirdly.  He looks tired during the opening tip but then he does some massive alley oop.  He looked tired on that play when he had to get up off the ground, but then he dominated the last three minutes of the game.  He’s easily better than Ja.  Ja Morant has no jump shot.  Everyone gives him the Ben Simmons treatment and they back off five feet.   If you give Zion space to shoot he’s still driving it into you.   Higher IQ basketball knowing his strengths.  Ja tends to shoot Memphis out of games. 

    Zion gets dogged a lot for his weight but through his first 20 games he’s the highest scoring rookie since MJ, while playing a way lower amount of minutes.  He’s getting it done.

    I must have watched Ingram on a bad night then because I thought he was good but wasn't that night and needed to pass the ball.

    Ja unlike Simmons, I hope learns a jump shot.

    Zion I still think only lasts 5 years in the league.  I hope I am wrong though.  Dude is explosive.

    No Dame time talk?  60 points?
    I actually don't think he will ever win a championship.  Think Iverson.

    Watched Jokic play last night.  That dude is really good.  Would love to see some better talent around him.
  • Dame also needs something more around him, he can't carry that team to a championship, no matter how many 60 point games he puts up. He's ridiculous, I'm just going to enjoy watching him while I can, and hope that they get into the playoffs at least.

    I threw the Iverson connection in there to say that even with people around him, he will be one dimensional.  He is fun to watch like Iverson was but the end result will be the same.

    Hmm, not sure I agree. If you improved the defence and stopped other teams scoring, then maybe maybe...

    I can count on one hand of players that play good D nowadays...

    I really wish defense was more prevalent int he NBA.  Bring back the damn Hand check!

    Only man on the planet who can stop Lillard is Jrue Holiday.  Other than that he’s been incredible.  I agree with the Iverson comparison.  They are both relentless.

    Shoutout to GIannis for headbutting that dude and getting suspended for the game against the Grizz yesterday. A game the Grizz had to win.

    Going to be tough to beat Dame twice, but LFG. Memphis vs Errrbody

    That would be my point.  He didn't win.

    Congrats to Portland for getting into the playoffs.  The Lakers should plow through them.
