    Nice interview with Lowry by NBATV.

    Summary: the culture reset is all about changing the style of play to be ready for the playoffs, i.e., getting other players ready to make plays when Kyle and DeMar are double-teamed and the offense is easily shut-down. It took 4 years to figure this out? Looks like that long running RR debate is finally put to rest.

    All the blind casey supporters can help themselves to their own words instead of turkey this thanksgiving.

    It does in fighting for a roster spot but not in the grand scheme of things. I think if McKinnie got McDaniel's opportunities he would have done a much better job, but obviously we'll never know for sure. You can just see he's a superior player already. Mainly because he can do a bit of everything and is a much better shooter than I thought. McDaniels seems to only be able to play decent defence and is very athletic, we already have OG who can do that. Or at least I rather OG get those minutes than McDaniels. We don't need him
    Can't really say that McKinnie is the better player off of the short opportunities each player has gotten. He has shown to have a better jumper, which will give him the edge for that roster spot. Always thought whoever shot better between the two would get the spot. If McDaniels comes out on Tuesday and hits 3 3s the spot is up for grabs again.

    McDaniel has already had more success in NBA than McKinnie though. Practise those matter, especially when you battling for a roster spot.

    Yea but who cares about practice, as Iverson would say lol. There have been a plethora of guys who've come and gone in this league because they show glimpses in practice but cant do shit when the actual games start. KJ seems to be one of them.

    Let's see how much of a difference this style change makes come playoffs. Role players still need to make shots when Deebo/KLow get trapped.

    That's very true. If it doesn't show results by playoff time they it was all for nothing, because right now this style seems to be hurting our defence which isn't good. I think that's why Casey never liked the up and down style in the past. I think this season is just going to be about fine tuning it and really getting it down by playoff time. If we're peaking around that time then we did the right thing.

    Very good interview. I like everything he said. I know this season with all the young guys there are going to be some really low lows like Kyle said but if they push through and it just ends up making the young guys better in the long term I'm happy. It's high time they all finally start getting consistent minutes. They'll never get good if they don't.

    Also speaking of young guys, I'm shocked to see that Pascal is actually shooting 42% from 3 so far in the preseason. And he's been playing with the full bench lineups a lot and the 3rd stringers. It really never feel like he was shooting it that well. I don't think he keeps up 40% but if he can be league average for a big man that will only help us. Especially with how shit Serge is playing.

    In a shocking turn of events, the guys who were never going to make the roster didn't make the roster.

    I stand my prediction of McKinnie and no one else making it. Hard to imagine them holding onto the extra guy with OG back early and McDaniels looking pretty bad so far.

    Agreed.

    The pre-season doom and gloom is getting a little carried away in here. Opening night can't come soon enough.

    I agree. Pre-season is just a laboratory to integrate new roster pieces into the team chemistry, try out new things and get the rust off.

    If pre-season results meant anything we wouldn't see both GSW and CLE going 0-2 as they are now. Most of the lineups we went with so far we'll never see again. Let them experiment, that's what these 5 games are there for, but you can really read too much into it.
