    Nice start for Covington.

    14 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks.

    In a win over the Lakers too. Sample 1 of the experiment is successful.

    It looks taxing going that small for such a significant stretch.

    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    It's not about whether their small ball works. We've seen them utilizing it effectively with Luc and Ariza. However we haven't seen sustainable success with their lineups. Every year we see them collapsing in the playoffs due to fatigue. The problem with the style that they play (among other things) is that they run guys into the ground.
    IMO, RW and RoCo are just lateral moves at the cost of 5 first round picks.

    And what happens if Tucker gets injured

    Team Giannis is gonna get crushed. Lol what was Giannis thinking with some of these picks? How does Lebron get Davis and Leonard and Doncic and Harden etc etc

    I wouldn’t be so sure.
    Trae was made for the AS game.

    Winning the all star game is pretty much about which team actually wants to win, and I think giannis has more under dog competitive types on his squad.

    + nurse will throw something crazy out there.

    I don't know. Lebron has a lot of Cali boys on his squad. They might go extra ham for Kobe.

    I can definitely see them grinding their players to dust but I'm not ready to conclude that previous underperformances had anything to do with fatigue.

    These upcoming playoffs will be the most interesting (league wide) we have seen for a really long time.

    MKG and Marvin Williams likely buyout candidates for Charlotte. Should we have interest in either? Or does RHJ adequately fit the backup forward role?

    Just based on skills I would prefer Marvin over RHJ.

    However... I don’t think it would have a positive
    Impact on the team despite Marvin being a better over all fit.
    Marvin would have to basically come in and show more hustle than RHJ for it to make sense to the rest of the team. I don’t imagine Marvin has that in him.

    His combination of shooting, defence, and mobility would have looked nice on this team had he started the year here.

    Marvin already signed with the Bucks and MKG is going to Dallas.

    No I mean they use Tucker as a big in their small ball line up and if he were to go down they would be extreamly thin in the front court. I think they'll secure a big man in the buy out market and when they do this all is going to work in their favour. I agree with you the move for Roco was a solid one. They don't really need Capela. If they land a solid rebounder and post defender they'll be much better off with Roco than Capela.
