    If Sully is ready for mins at the 4/5 then I'd like yak/siakam to play heavy mins on 905 before the dleague season ends.

    Interesting read on Thon Maker, who was picked right after Jakob. The prioritization of the development of his lower body is great; that's where I think other programs that focus excessively on upper body mass building go wrong.

    Thought this was a good quote from Steve Kerr:




    Ties back well to what Sam Mitchell was saying in his interview.

    Doesn't he come off as slightly condescending?

    Also, KG is right.

    I thought it was mostly exasperation, particularly the stuff he was saying about AAU coaches not teaching the fundamentals.

    Smitch always liked to mess with reporters and put them in their place. It's what he does.

    Great read from Smitch.

    This in particular rang true for me:

    These are things that veteran teams just take for granted. We have to teach all of that. So, OK, people think, “Well you told them.” But how long does it take to break bad habits, habits that you have had ever since you started playing basketball? You can’t just do it by telling them once. If no one has ever taught you how to set a proper screen, I have got to show you Monday, I have got to show you Tuesday, I got to show you Wednesday, on tape Thursday, on tape Friday — until it becomes second nature.

    If either Powell or Bennett could actually shoot. I feel like they would of already surpassed Ross and 2pat. The fact that Ross and 2pat have proven in the past that they can shoot give them the edge. This team needs shooting and cause of that Casey has to play play Ross and 2pat.
    You throw Tyler Hansborough's mind into Bennett's body, things will get done

    I might add that it looks that Bruno has come a long way despite virtually no varsity minutes. He was so raw that there was nowhere to go but up with his talent, still an interesting case. There's so much behind developing a player beyond finding them a few minutes.
    Skill wise, yes i agree. I always thought he needed minutes just to increase his bball iq, defensive rotations, offencive flow, ect. He can work on this in the d league fine, and i agree he already is improving in that area. I dont think there is a substitute for 5 on 5 play, but he has definitely improved his individual skills.

    We're not even 20 games in, I don't see much point playing these young guys when we have capable players in front of them. They're learning a ton right now, so they're still developing even if it's not on the court.

    Bayno has done a really good job with both JV and Ross.

    For the first time in franchise history I am confident in our ability to draft someone and help them succeed. Not like in the past where we just hope that they 'get it'
    "where we just hope that they 'get it"
    That's Colangelo logic right there

    I don't mind you saying that we are going to play the guys who are earning their playing time, but follow through with it. If you are going to bench someone for making a stupid defensive play and giving up a bucket (i.e. Ross) thats fine, but you better do the same when DD takes several bad shots in a row, or at least tell the guy to stop. History says Casey picks favorites, which is contrary to the whole, "these guys are going to earn their minutes." Who's to say that Wright/Powell/Bebe aren't playing well and practice and should earn minutes? Bebe has played well in the D-League and Wright is coming off a 9/9 shooting night, so it looks like they are playing pretty well.

    Bottom line, we have no clue how well the young guys look in practice, but I am willing to bet that when they see that Casey sticks to his guys, they probably lose spirits and either put less work in or aren't ready for when they get their chance.
