How do you figure? The man puts up All Star like numbers year after year on a ****** *** team who hasn't made the playoffs in how long and he doesn't get any kind of love but gets snubbed time after time by the NBA

because whatever he puts up on offense is given right back on defense, and then some. There's a reason his team hasn't improved despite the numbers he puts up. He is the clear definition of empty stats. His stats are meaningless, in fact, he hurts his team doing so.

This... His defense is putrid and the balls stops with him hurting the offense far more than helping it... He is incredibly medicore and yet most teams/Gms think he is a superstar which is why if the suns were smart they would get a kings ransom and really have an insane core to build around.

Gasol is a mountain of a dude. I can actually see Joel progressing similarly to his. If he can develop Gasolís feel for game itís over. Iíd really like to see Joel with a more traditional pg

It's been a mix. Brett's gotten him to post up more with Butler in the mix, and it's actually really helping our offense.

Yea. It's been what I wanted to see from him. Ben likes playing in the low post, Embiid in the mid-post, and Butler on the wing.

One of my favorite plays I've seen introduced lately:
~Simmons brings the ball down
~Embiid sets the downscreen for Butler
~Simmons passes to Butler, Embiid sets screen for Simmons

Now you got Simmons low, Embiid mid, Butler on the wing, but with switches you could have the 5 on Butler, 1 on Embiid, 3 on Simmons. Now you got the 3 way mismatch that's hard to guard. If you don't switch you just got defenders running the zipper to cover that and there could be so many mistakes.

Donovan Mitchell is a scrub. Horrible 3pt shooter and shoots it more than Westbrook. Once again cost them the game.

i love our defense and how its coming together... Buckets is so clutch come the 4th and ben is looking to score... The defense is the key and watch embiid switch off and D up conley is ****ing amazing.

I not allowed to say this... I become a hater. I never liked his basketball IQ and thought he was way overhyped last year... I just dont like the selfish players that score 24 ppg because they take 20 shots... Its not good basketball esp when you arent a good 3 point shooter... He wasnt the best player on their team last year even though everyone seemed to think he was...He kills them offensively and doesnt do his job defensively. He needs to learn to pass more.

The sick thing is he has shown no progression this year... He literally across the board is the same as last year except a slightly worse 3 point shooter... 19 shots per game for 21 points is yuck

Well the book on him is out now and he has not adjusted. He's also not young, so there is not too much improvement expected compared to most 2nd year guys. The D Wade comparisons always cracked me up, but he's just a major negative at this point.

I do agree with the assessment though that the Jazz don't have a 2nd guy that can take the ball and make plays. But for Mitchell to be the lead with it he needs to really clean up with it.

Yeah, heís no Wade, even though I I think I may have gone there.

Lol a lot of us did. He's just undersized and has one + quality which is scoring. Only problem is he's not a very good scorer, and straight up bad this season. The other issue is I don't think he has a future as a #1, but that is his mentality. Monte Ellis vibe for me.
