Bogi was still instrumental down the stretch as bad as he was for most of the game . I still love his ability to create out of half court sets and be poised under duress. He's going to break out this slump.
Please Great God Naismith. Take away the voices of some of these idiot reporters allowed into the locker rooms after the games. They're trying to force the players/coaches into saying something to match their agenda. Thank goodness Joerger, Barnes and now Burks didn't take the bait.
Oh no doubt. If things work out right Bogdan you just found your right hand man to take pressure off you in Alec Burks and Fox and Buddy got their new best bud in Harrison Barnes. Hopefully life becomes a little easier for the trio that's carried this team this year.
Of all the things I complain about Willie for, that’s not at the top of my list. There was one play where someone (probably Whiteside) grabbed a rebound over him and put it back in and Willie didn’t even leave his feet or contest the outback... That was far more irritating than that tweet.
His defense is good, so much better than what we have had to bear witness to on the wings. Wade got hot on him in the 1st half but Barnes knows how to play defense. On offense he needs to cut more instead of hanging out behind the line. He made a stupid entry pass but overall he makes good decisions with the ball. He needs to run harder in transition. He is not used to playing the pace we play. I will likely like Barnes for the extent of his tenure knowing we got him for nothing. He's like a free player and a definite upgrade even if overpaid. He is going to Top 3 for us in terms of getting to the free throw line with Fox and Bagley.
Elephant in the room? Marvin is an awesome player who had an off game. Don't be so fickle towards a guy with All-NBA talent. It is challenge for everybody right now trying to gain comfort and familiarity. It is not easy incorporating two new guys with minimal practice, when you a key player having the worst shooting slump of his life, and your center is brooding over whatever. It is encouraging to me we won this game playing so bad.
