Yeah, Im not a big fan of Asik either. At least Solo can play some type of defense and occasionally add a little offensive spark. Asik doesn't do much of either, and is a marginal rebounder at best. I will say that his contract looked absurd at first, but after the market settled, his contract isn't too bad compared to those like Timofey Mozgov in LA. I'd still rather get rid of him though and play Ajinca (who can also add some scoring).

If they beat Atl and Min they will be .500 and they were competitive in half of the loses. Jrue is the catalyst for AD.

If we beat both of them, wouldn't that only put us at 6-10? Or am I missing something here?

I bet AD gets 30+, jrue gets 20+ (both get double-doubles)

I bet that Langston get more play than Tim moving forward

I bet that we again write off the SF and C positions for any sort of offensive consistency.

On a side note, I have been thoroughly impressed with Terrence Jones. Even though he is a little slow, his overall game is pretty solid on both ends of the court.

I thought that he would... the guy who I thought would step up and hasn't is solomon hill. maybe he will get better offensively... his defense has been noticeably decent.

This is why, while very frustrating, I was not overreacting to the start of the season. We were losing close games to good basketball teams without our 2nd or 3rd best player on the floor. Now we get our 2nd best player back and the teams wins two tough games. I am not saying we didn't dig ourselves into a hole, but it is a long season. None of the guys brought in this summer were brought here to be the 2nd leading scorer or run the offense. They were brought in to play sound defense and make open looks while spacing the floor. With Holiday running the team it will simplify what many of these guys are doing and in turn it will allow them to settle down mentally and stop overthinking.

I do hope that Hill rebounds some on the offensive end of the floor which I think he will with the pressure off.

There is a good chance we could come out of December at .500 and that is after starting the year as bad as we could. Am I very optimistic, yes, but this is a better team than most believed when we were 0-8.
