No, she doesn't read DT, but she knows that I do. She was with me when I met Jax and TC at Thunderstruck and she just happened to know Jax's wife. The two of them made fun of us for being internet nerds.

2. They are both very attractive, let's just say that. :)

I agree that Reggie is definitely better than Progioni, but on this team, Progioni may be better.

Our biggest need is shooting. He is better than Reggie at that. And with Waiters now here, Reggie's biggest weapon (the ball in his hands) is taken away to an extent. And we could also use Prigioni's passing on this team.

How much better is this team:

Russ/Roberson/KD/Serge/Lopez

Prigioni/Waiters/Morrow/Nick/Adams

Than this team:

Russ/Roberson/KD/Serge/Adams

Reggie/Waiters/Morrow/Nick/Perk

??

I would say significantly better.

The first game wasn't close at all because the league hadn't determined the upper division league and the lower division league yet. So we played a ridiculously good team. Four of their players were over 6'3" and three of them dunked on us. 

The second game, we "only" lost by 9. But it was a close game until the end. 

We're playing zone defense, but I like your idea of more pick and roll. Cause right now, we have nothing resembling any sort of offense. (Sound familiar? Ha!)

He already looks better than Lamb, and I'm not a Lamb hater by any means. I still wish we played him. I'm excited about Abrines. We could basically be adding a lotto pick next season.

I'm not one bit concerned about Morrow. I'm excited about his upcoming hot streak, actually. 

Dude is a career 43% 3 point shooter on high volume, top 10 all time percentage over 8 years in the league. He's gonna be fine. Love him.

The roster doesn't blow.

KD/Russ/Serge/Reggie/Adams/Morrow are probably the best top six players on any roster. But the problem is 7-10 isn't good and we are in dire need of better discipline, coaching and shooting.

And we were only offering Perk/Lamb and they still almost did it. We can offer much better than that.

We need more players who can score efficiently. Which Lopez definitely can. And the spacing and outlet he would provide for KD and Russ would be outstanding. He can shoot from outside or finish in the post. Our offense would go to a new level.

It would be really really tough to be beat a team of Russ/anyone/KD/Serge/Lopez.

I'm gonna be really upset if we don't get Lopez. I think he gets us over the hump and is the difference between winning a title or not. He would make the offense so much better, and we wouldn't be playing Perk. Adams and Nick could dominate bench bigs. The whole team gets so much better.

Nick's demise is overinflated. He's not as good as he was, but his smarts and skill can still help this team. And he's definitely better than all these CD-DNPs he's been getting.

Brooksed again.

I think the positives he would bring to the offense would outweigh the negatives on defense. I think it's a net positive.

Forget Reggie to Charlotte. Three easy steps for Presti to follow. 

1. Perk/Reggie to Brooklyn for Brook Lopez. 

2. A second rounder to NY for Pablo Prigioni. 

3. Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte for the best offer they'll give us, whatever that is.

Yep. Completely agreed that we need offensive help. Especially with Brooks playing Morrow and reggie so little. It's why I can't let go of the Lopez trade. We need that to happen in a big way.

Still not worrie about Morrow's shot. He's a top 10 all time 3 point shooter. Going through a cold spell. He didn't just forget how to shoot after 7 years of being an elite 3 point shooter.

But if not, then I don't wanna trade Reggie this season unless it's someone who is gonna help.

I agree with both of you. 

McGee is a terrible idea, even if they get Chandler and a 1st. Reggie/Perk is better than that. 

Lopez is a big risk because of health and that big contract. But OKC is willing to take the risk. Here's hoping we give them a better offer than Denver/Miami/LA.

Charlotte not dealing with Brooklyn is good for us. Nets desperate to unload those contracts. The fewer partners, the better.

We may have just played the three best/hottest teams in the NBA over our last few games. Golden State, Atlanta and Cleveland.

We beat Golden State and we had a 4th quarter lead over Cleveland and played Atlanta close for most of the game. Both on the road. We didn't have Steven Adams against Cleveland. And our shooters have been off.

We have issues. But it's not as bad as some people are making it out to be.

Waiters is an issue. Perk is an issue. Another Presti move could tip things in our favor.

@propsizzle And over a brutal stretch of road games. 

And though most people made fun of it, KD and Royce were right- we were getting a lot of good shots. Our best shooters have been off. It's not as gloom and doom as it's being made out to be.

I was excited when we got Waiters because I thought he was going to be a 15 minute a game scorer off the bench. Not a 36 minute a game, crunch time lineup, Reggie and Morrow minutes stealing, long contested 2 chucker.

It's obvious why Waiters is playing so many minutes - Brooks views him as a two way player, which we haven't had at the SG position. 

In Brooks' eyes, Morrow is only offense, Roberson is only defense and Lamb is an afterthought. 

Waiters has a great reputation as a scorer and an offensive weapon. And he looks locked in and tries hard on defense. 

Never mind that he doesn't score efficiently at all and there isn't much of a difference between he and Morrow defensively. 

Morrow should be getting Waiters' minutes.

Brooks doesn't like advanced stats... he uses the eye test. 

But he needs a new prescription.
