    I’m already seriously concerned. The first 2 years of a max contract have been complete wastes for us. Gordon is trying his best but it may never happen. This may be all we get. He needs to at least shoot better.

    Hopefully the rebounding is better next year when TL and AD are manning the boards

    Right now. Surprisingly, if you look at his stats, he’s not that far off his career numbers. But he’s obviously slower than he’s ever been and he’s absolutely struggling to fit into this system.

    It’s going to take Hayward much of the year to find his game like it did with Paul George.

    And I think that’s fine. He shouldn’t be getting 30-35 minutes a game then. He should be getting 20 max. Like Rozier. He’s averaged 27 a game this season. Kyrie is 32. Tatum is 31. Al is 29. Then we have Hayward and Morris with 27. That’s broken.

    I think that's the glass half full view of things. His "career" numbers include his rookie year, where he played 16 minutes a game, and his 2nd season where he played a lot of minutes but wasn't really involved, and was actually pretty bad.

    His last season in Utah, he averaged 21.9ppg and he shot 47.1/39.8%. He's at 10.9 this year and he's shooting 41.4/34.3%.

    He’s a $30M role player. If we’re lucky, he’ll improve to being a $30M 4th option. It just really sucks.

    Yes. Good point. His prior three years in Utah he was always around 20ppg.

    C’s locker room is still closed to the media almost a half hour after the game which is very unusual.

    I can see not using timeouts early in the 2nd half... but you don't let the Bucks go on a 20-0 run without calling a TO in the first half of a game

    Kyrie at least shows up for three more quarters than I. Thomas but does not look 100% healthy.

    After reading the post-game stuff, this post by AimingforYoko seems a little less ridiculous than a few folks thought last night:
