This Doc Rivers experiment seems to be going off the rails faster than I ever thought it would.

He’s a bad coach.  Not surprised

It's gonna work out stupendously for Rivers, no matter what.

I’d bet on over 15 points, over 7 rebounds, and over 3 assists per game for him this year. Over 1 block, but he’s thin and 3 blocks is a lot.

Even I undersold him.  Looking back at the first few pages of this thread is funny.

Quote
Wembanyama joined Jamaal Tinsley (2001) as the only NBA rookies to have a 5x5 game -- posting at least 5 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocks in a game -- and became just the second player to have 5 blocks and 5 steals in consecutive games, joining Michael Jordan.

Wembanyama paused to consider Jordan's feat and then asked, "I wonder if he did it in wins."

What a great comment.

Hilarious.  A rookie on an 11-46 team about a legend who was 6-0 in NBA Finals.

Wemby isn’t really the issue there…

But I do recall him being a bust after the first exhibition game.

Very solid win last night for the Bucks.  Have to build on it and not crap the bed like they did after blowing Denver out. It’s encouraging.

Yeah I’m not sure what else Wemby is supposed to do. He’s been good. He’s learning. He hasn’t said anything dumb.

I like the Clippers new logo.  Very sharp. Had no idea why they were called the clippers until now

I was wrong about Jaquez.  I thought he'd be a serviceable NBA player.  The guy is proving to be much more.

DePaul’s own Max Strus went on a hell of a heater in the closing minutes of the Cavs game tonight.
