    I am pumped about Shabazz. Visions of Irving, Waiters and Muhammad on the fast break is a utopian dream that all Cavs fans should pray for!!
    He got in foul trouble and sat for a huge chunk of the first half. Still showed a few dirty post moves. He doesn't rebound with any kind of authority which is alarming.

    Came away very unimpressed with Cody Zeller, and it had nothing to do with his average/below average stat line. Did not look like he has the physical tools or the aggressiveness to be a #1 or #2 scoring option on an NBA team.

    Muhammad has talent. Already obvious.

    Keep an eye on Otto Porter as well. Good length and athleticism.

    Shabazz playing tenacious on ball D right now. Ball-watching like most young players do when he's playing off ball D.

    Just from seeing 1 minute of him play, I'm going to predict he earns a reputation as a guy with bad shot selection.

    Max posted that the tank thread would get a lot more views soon. Some interpreted it to mean Varejao was getting traded. Instead it was in reference to Irving's injury.

    Way to put words in the guy's mouth. He was talking about Kyrie's injury.

    You guys should keep your eye on Tony Mitchell of North Texas. Because if you're looking at the Thompson/Waiters statguy pick of the year, he fits the profile. Last year he put up 59% on 2pters and averaged 10.3 rebs, 3.0 blks, 0.9 stls in 29mpg for a SF/PF. The stat machines and obviously the ones the Cavs favor, love reb, blk, stl, and 2P%. From the breadcumbs I've followed with the Cavs picks the last 2 years and their stats, Mitchell SCREAMS a Chris Grant statguy pick. Mitchell is a super version of college TT statistically.

    How did McAdoo end up doing? I only watched like 5 minutes and loved what I saw.

    Chris Grant doesn't love stats, he loves metrics. Advanced metrics attempt to figure out a player's true activity on the court as it contributes to the team winning, though individual defense isn't strongly incorporated at the moment. Even with those numbers you posted, poor 3pt shooting or FT shooting could lead to an average EFG%, high minutes played could produce an average rebound rate, etc.

    4 basic statistical categories, while impressive, don't tell the whole story.

    He looked good, but it was never even a contest. Still don't think he could start at the 3 in the NBA, and he doesn't have enough range to be a solid stretch 4, so I don't really know where we'd put him. He's like Derrick Williams that doesn't shoot the 3.

    I think you can tell a lot about how a player will perform in the NBA (or NFL) solely by looking at their name
    Shabazz sounds like a player who will be a stud
    Otto (Porter) does not
    I'm only slightly kidding..
    I also believe there is a lot in a name. I disagree with you however, I think Otto Porter is a GREAT name, has a nice ring to it IMO.

    That's how I knew Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was going to suck before the IU Georgia game started tonight. His name is absolutely ridiculous and not marketable at all. To be an average NBA player, he'd have to go by KCP...but that's a relatively shitty letter combo, so he's pretty much fucked.

    Why why why why why why why do you guys want another big man?
    We need a small forward, period. It has been to long neglecting the position since he left.
