Tayshaun Prince was a great player. That chase down block of Reggie Miller in the ECF won them the championship. The Pacers weren't going to beat the Lakers that year.

But yeah. BI should be a much more accomplished player when it's all said and done. Hopefully.


I think he's more Kawai than Giannis. I don't think BI has that athletic ability like Giannis (though Kawai isn't a slouch either).

Ingram is a future multi-time DPOY award winner?


No. I'm just saying b/w Kawai/Giannis he's more the former.

For anyone who is interested, this is a great YouTube channel for BI highlights. This guy makes monthly compilations of all of his shot attempts, misses/makes.

Who knows? Perhaps they both join BI in 19' & 20'?

Nah, GT has the analysis game on LOCK. This guy just does highlights in bulk, which is helpful in its own right. I like to watch his misses to see the shot selection aspect of his game.

Not a shot expert, but it looks like even though his feet are set better and his body is more on balance overall when taking 3-pointers, the slingshot shooting motion is still there. Will that even be a problem, though, as long as it's working for him and the mechanics are consistent? Should at least be sustainable on uncontested looks, no?

Ingram deserves a ton of credit for buying into his tweaked jumpsuit over the summer. His shot used to have an ugly, catapult-ish hitch to it. Now itís one smooth motion.

If his free-throw shooting was at an above-average level he'd probably be averaging 20 points a game this season. But that could be said for pretty much the entire team outside of the new acquisitions. Ingram could really explode next season just on a regular progression of his development.

BI's 3 Ball is nice players, very nice indeed.

Reminds me of myself back in my younger days (from the college line, lol)

His jumpshot coming out of the draft was compared to Dirk, who's shot is similar to Bird as well. Last year and the start of the season BI's shot looked like more of a flat set shot, but it's much smoother and better now. Giannis, Kawhi, and now compared to Bird, yea BI is gonna be really, really good in the future.

The Spurs will trade Kawhi this summer for picks and a current player that fits their system. Thereís a good chance he makes it to a contender to begin next year... bold guess, Wizards. If that team gets silly quickly, we risk the same PG situation this year.

Klay might stay in the yay; even take a haircut on the deal. You donít leave a potential dynasty. It would take PG taking us to the WCF and destroying the SuperDubs ourselves, next year mind you... to pry Klay away, and even then itís not a given.

So what do we do?

Well, we roll with our team of course. Pay JR the day after the final game of the season. Evaluate IT. Lock BI and Mamba in a gym, the entire summer, and let an able bodied Kobe help the young man archive all of it. Have Kuz, Big Mamba, Zu, and Hitman run Bulldog Road all summer long when theyíre not on defensive drills... all of it, like a Rocky montage. Zo can come along, if his dad lets him.

As a fan in the present, I hope Cleavland dominates Giannis out of the east right into our arms. Look on with pride of the guys we gave Cleaveland with no envy. Nance and JC are vets in this league now. They deserve a shot. And the fact that they could be making Giannis that much more hungry, makes me smile. The whole thing is a no lose. We have a shot at all of the guys we want coming home...

PG, KLAY, KAWHI... all in the next two years for a #showtimehomecoming. And guess what... we are the best suited to get these all stars together. If IT (Inglewood always up to no good... I see u IT) wants to kick a spot, MLE, baby.

With a little vision, it can be spoken into existence.

Amazing! If he can finish out the year shooting 40% from 3 that would be killer. His shot does look effortless now, it just goes in!

I'm hoping he doesn't defer too much to IT. Future of the team in part belongs to him and not IT.

IT hogging the rock isn't working together. The point is BI shouldn't just drop the ball to IT everytime. He's been orchestrating the offense a bit while Lonzo has been out.

Loving the way he's played these past dozen or so games. His confidence takingt he 3 ball is fantastic. Dude is no longer hesitating on open 3s and it's elevated all other parts of his game giving him more space to work and better rhythm.

And missing the passes on the pick and rolls.

Not the "Ingram" we need tonight.
