  • Who are the guys Ujiri doesn't love?


    Pretty obvious who he didn't love last season.


    But who does he tolerate this season?

    Lowry? JV? DeRozan? JJ?

    The easy answer is DeMar because most of his signings have been good WS/48 guys.. long, athletic, defense-first and can shoot from the outside. That's why I don't think he'll be back.

      I use to think along those lines.

      I had a thread about Ujiri and the common trait of a high WS/48 all his signings had.


      ......and then the Ross extension happened and that theory was set out to pasture.

        Sounds like Cathal Kelly talking shit to me.

              I mean, "he got rid of a bunch he didn't like". Really?

              I never really got the impression that anyone was a bad character guy. Even Lou and Vasquez and their chuck-fest ways still seemed pretty team-first in other aspects.

              In fact I would say the most difficult personalities are still on this team (JJ, Lowry).

                On Open Gym Masai was saying how hard it was to trade Vasquez and Cathal Kelly is saying opposite. Masai is probably pissed at Kelly lmao

                  Masai probably doesn't think about Cathal Kelly, like, ever.

                    Don't worry. The Ross extension is just a stepping stone to Masai's master plan.

                      I would be most surprised if the portrayal of Masai just paying lip service to analytics has merit.

                      Apart from the investment in the analytics expertise gathered by MU in the f/o there are moves he has made including TRoss which seem to be analytics inspired. I say this because the eye test definitely does not support the extension (term & $). He has to believe that Ross has value on the trade front and beyond his occasional displays of potential. The question is how long does that value hold. There are also the future cap #s which mitigates the amounts. Didn't Vaz & Williams also have bad analytics #s?

                      That wasn't a particularly judicious thing to write in anycase unless someone actually told Kelly that (like Casey? )

                      MU doesn't give away much. I would say no one can really say what his true motivations are in any move unless blatant of course.

                        Lets just say that we are all playing tic tac toe, while Masai is playing chess.

                            i have one memory of this game. from the original batman series. bruce is playing dick and wins, of course. dick asks "how do you do it bruce?" "why it's simple. you just need to look 64 moves ahead." haha
