    Its about winning, Stoudemire said. You win, youre going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you dont win, nobody really wants to see you.

    The one thing Siakam is doing that makes me feel there is another level he can get to is his ability to get deep into the paint against most matchups. There are times where he gets pushed off balance but he is able to get a nice look at the basket on a turnaround jump shot in most cases. He is not consistent with that shot but I like that he can get that look more times than not.

    I get Flynn's dad wanting to be like what LaVar Ball was when Lonzo first got to the league cuz the fact is, Malachi just does not get the amount of minutes his fellow rookies like Edwards, LaMelo, Haliburton, Quickley and company get...now is Eric Flynn wrong for wanting his son to be ballin?

    I've really liked his play over the last couple months. A little up and down but he is attacking the net with force and is getting high quality looks. The weight loss might have actually helped his defense. He is looking quicker laterally and showing signs of the type of defense he was playing early last year.

    Okay but if that is the case, he should be carrying this team to wins no? I'm just sayin that's all 🙂

    Because I've liked his play? The Raptors winning or losing is not predicated on one player. Their struggles have been based on a combination of factors, which you should be aware of since you are a huge fan of the team.

    Is it wrong for wanting it ? No, but I dont agree with taking it to social media. I think parents should understand that they are really embarrassing their son but doing so. If you notice not even LaVar talks nearly as much as he use to.

    I didnt even notice that hes lost that much weight... this is also why Im afraid of Boucher adding weight even though we know he needs to. We just dont know how it will effect him. 10-15 lbs makes a lot of difference in your laterals, verticals, explosiveness etc

    Fan base has a hard time grasping that were trying to lose. They think Nurse is going for the Larry OB lol

    I think Siakam is just trying really hard to recapture that magic. NBA has been too easy for him. Ever since the bubble he has had a difficult time. Now he's going through that time period where he is messing with everything to find an answer.

    Yeah Ive been tempted to chime in on how pleased Ive been with siakams play lately. Looking back at the season as a whole I see it as a step forward for him. Hes expanded on his game by sharing the rock, and making it work for himself with less talent around him. Hes had some attitude problems and we all wish his percentages were higher, but his play has not been bad at all this year.

    Hope he continues to trend upwards and find that swag back again
