He looks scared/nervous out there. Think it’s just a lost season. Hopefully we can get him feeling confident next year. We gonna have a summer league?

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Yeah, total bummer. Still think he will be good but taking him over Haliburton feels like Ayton over Doncic: the late Lottery edition.

I hadn't even heard of a single player in their starting lineup. Wow.
I'm thinking of it as a friendly.
Let's effing hope the Suns don't treat it that way again...
I never even heard of their coach! Mark Daigneault?!

The whole team is an episode of “Who He Play For?”

I’m gonna be really pissed if we let them back in this thing. Let’s lead by 30ish the rest of the way.
I hope you didn’t get too upset when it got down as low as 19.

Some hope for OKC:

Theo Maledon and Aleksej Pokusevski combined for 53 of the Thunder’s 103 points. Maledon had 33 and Pokusevski had 20. They became the first pair of NBA teammates under 20 years old to both score at least 20 points in the same game.
The Suns finally have the potential to shine again ... 8-)

Two bright spots for a franchise who looks like they will be terrible for years to come. Shai will eventually get tired of losing. It'd be different if they were losing when he got there but since he's already made playoffs that patience for rebuilding won't last as long. I get collecting assets but having like 34 draft picks over the next several years is absolute overkill. No way they can package all or even most of those into something more valuable. It'll create a revolving door of players each season. Hard to establish any sort of winning culture like that. Best of luck to them as a small market team. They will need it.

Love watching a game where I can turn it off after the 3rd for good reason. Glad they came out and handled business like elite teams should. Hopefully having a day of practice now will let them fine tune a few things and get Craig even more acclimated into his role.
