2018-2019 Official NBA thread

Recommended Posts

An absolutely dominant Wendell Carter Jr. game, his offense matched his fantastic defense.

25 pts, 8 reb, 5 asst and 3 blocks. And I thought he had like 10 blocks.

He did all of this pretty much within the offense.

Carter's switch defense is amazing. 

By far our best defensive player. 

And D-Rose dropping 50 is a WTF moment.

3 steals as well. Just stuffed that stat sheet

I'm pretty sure Rose never scored 50 even in his peak years.

The physical ability never actually left him.

Watching the end of the Twolves game it was one of the most emotional finishes you will see at a regular season game. Despite the things he said over the years, it was good to see Rose finding the fountain of youth for one night and reminding Chicago and the NBA what could have been.

That said I don't quite understand how out of the timeout Justin Holliday ends up guarding paul milsap. I assume Hutchinson was supposed to be doing it, but that's not a particularly small lineup by denver but it's not a good rebounding one for us.

Yea what got me was after that he was sobbing and had to cover himself with a towel for 2 mins before doing an interview because he never thought he could play like this again.

I don't know about that. I did not see tonight but I have seen some moves this year that gave me pause. The stop start acceleration and vertical definitely made his finishing skills way off from 2011 for last many years. Maybe it's finally back.

Yea that vertical and acceleration from him is long gone but it isn't like he has 40 year old knees either. He just isn't the physical freak he once was. Still a very useful player

Yeah, the vertical is gone and will never come back, the highlights were fun to watch but that's not him these days. But when I watched him play I always felt like his actual physical talent was more than the results he was getting. He changed his style of play and it turned him into something mediocre to average.

I'm really really excited to see WCJ and Lauri together. It seems like they are going to complement each other so well.

Derrick Rose becoming the leader, dropping 50 points on a young team that Jimmy Butler is quitting on because he and the young  guys don't get along is not where I saw the NBA headed.

The Bulls need to do a better job of getting Zach LaVine the ball in transition. That's where he's most effective and they keep missing him wide open.

Same. There were a few times that Carter was pretty wide open after screens and they didnt get him the ball.

I think the starting line up likely will be: WCJ/Lauri/Hutchison/Lavine/Dunn (when they are all healthy) with Parker as 6th man. They need to find a star though if they want to take the next step next year.

So hopefully they keep losing close games and get lucky in the lotto.

This is what I was expecting out of WCJ. I guess he needed a few games to get comfortable.

You'd almost think he was a 19 year old rookie...
