    I like Flynn, but if there is one thing that really stands out between him and the guys that got minutes this season is his lack of physicality. Every guy from Fred to Precious are uber physical defenders. Even Boucher is punching above his weight.
    That said, he really put in some solid minutes checking Harden and Maxey. Stayed in front of them and really took away their line drives to the net.

    I'm certainly more prepared to give him some development time than I had been previously.
    (I'm not sure whether I actually have that kind of authority.)

    As much as Nurse has been criticized by some for over playing veterans long minutes at the expense of youth development, does anyone think we make the post season (at least in 5th) if we played Flynn for 10 of Fred's minutes or anyone for 10 in place of Pascal?

    Even at that, you can't make that argument without acknowledging the strides that each of Scottie (obviously), Achiuwa (major) and OG (limited) have made. I'd like to know more of what we have in Flynn and Svi for instance but what can you do?

    Maybe Nurse ran Fred into the ground on purpose... so he wouldn't have the awkward situation of having to bench him in the playoffs to unlock Scottie at PG and the 6'9"s. That's 6D chess right there.

    Are you trying to tell me Nurse is developing our young players?

    Goldblum is 100% correct. There was a lot of media comment after it was revealed that Precious was a Giants of Africa Alum. And you don't mine diamonds by turning carbon into precious stones. You dig up the ore and remove the unneeded parts to reveal the gem. True, it is cut and shaped afterward, but all the cutting and shaping in the world doesn't turn carbon into diamond. It has to be found.
    Lab grown diamonds (also known as lab created diamonds, man made diamonds, engineered diamonds, and cultured diamonds) are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that duplicate the conditions under which diamonds naturally develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the Earth’s crust. These lab created diamonds consist of actual carbon atoms arranged in the characteristic diamond crystal structure. Since they are made of the same material as natural diamonds, they exhibit the same optical and chemical properties.
    my name is Precious and I was created inside Nick Nurse the Mad Scientist lab

    I think there is plenty enough credit to go around no? Precious obviously put in the work, Masai obviously targeted him for a while, Nurse has been great developing guys for that leap and rather directly had the most obvious role this season with the mid-season bench demotion seeming to lead directly to the rather dramatic shift in Precious' playstyle and confidence throughout the season.

    We don't need to fight over who to give credit to, this leap is amazing and takes everyone involved.

    I'm going to give credit to Precious.

    No, seriously, he was playing well at the start of the season, but was missing bunnies all over the place, and getting mad at himself. You can tell his attitude has changed... he still needs the game to slow down for him and play a bit smarter, but that will come as he plays more.

    Nah it’s not bunk and it totally made sense at that time…Masai and Bobby just had no leverage at all.

    Masai and Bobby traded their priced diamond to Pat Riley for a sole carbon….brought this carbon to the lab of Mr. Nick “the mad scientist” Nurse, then told him to do the best that he can to make this a lab grown diamond so Mad Scientist Nicky subjected this carbon under high pressure and under high temperature in a controlled lab environment….fast forward to know, we can already see the glitter.

    that’s the simplest way to explain it

    so gtfoh….But I’m giving All credit to Nick Nurse

    Scottie however is no carbon, he is already a diamond needing refinement for a nice engagement ring

    They didn't 'take whatever they could get for Lowry' -- that's bunk.

    Masai has been watching Precious since he was a teenager and is well aware of the potential there, probably better than most anybody.

    Just cause you (we) couldn't evaluate the possibilities -- don't for a second think that Masai & Bobby didn't have an idea of what was achievable.

    Masai said "you're mine now." -- not "You were the best we could get."

    gtfoh

    Next thing you'll be saying Masai and Bobby just randomly guessed when they drafted Scottie but it was "all credit" to Nick who made him great.

    By all means, celebrate Nurse. He deserves it.

    But Masai and Bobby do every bit as much, as well.
