    Today IS Scottie Barnes day: https://theathletic.com/2820312/2021...shared-article

    This isn't even the best part of the article:
    That was an incredible read. I think pretty easily the best piece I’ve ever read from Koreen. …. (As it suggests in the piece, that’s what Scottie does, make those around him better.)

    From reading that and the tribune article this afternoon… my quota for basketball-related emotions has been well exceeded for the day.

    (Side note, while there are many other more impactful passages and anecdotes in that article, my favourite line has to be “Barnes is an unscrewed fire hydrant of emotion on the floor” …. Lol)

        As Masai said, we're not here to make a play in game, we're here to win championships.

          The only sad thing is that we won't be bad enough to grab another lottery pick in a solid draft unless something bad happens.

            That's not a sad thing, being bad sucks big time. For the players and the fans. We retooled and we're ready to start building towards another championship, no more backsliding.

                  I've honestly never understood not playing defense in any basketball game, from pickup to pros. If you don't wanna play defense play horse or tips or something. Half the game is defense, and for garbage shooters like myself, defense and rebounding is where I get my kicks. Making a block is my absolutely favorite thing to do, rather have 1 block than 10 made 3's.

                    Oftentimes good drafts is where "the rich get richer" with great and ready-to-play but more niche/roleplayer talent right there for the taking outside the lottery. It's served us well in the past, and just look at the draft this year for talent outside the draft. The key is to keep your pick, which many good teams did not do in the 2021 draft. Hawks got a projected top 10 pick in Jalen Johnson.

                      Yeah, I'm confident Masai will find a gem no matter where he is drafting. He's also excellent at shipping out junk in exchange for picks, e.g. Greivis Vasquez, Bargnani, Matt Thomas, Terrence Davis.

                      Jalen Johnson slid because of mental stuff, OG slid because of injury history, you gotta do your due diligence and you can find guys that shouldn't have slid but did.

                                He even hypes his ceremonial first pitch. Can’t wait to see him on the floor. People are not going to know what to make of him.
