No one will ever confuse me for SoCalDevin, but Ingram's defense to start this preseason and season makes me more excIted about him than I've been since the draft.


It's not like I'm overly optimistic.. Just so we're clear I don't make statements about him being an allstar, superstar, or the next KD.. I merely defend him when I believe there is a critique that's off. I even said he probably won't look like an allstar for another 2 years.


U defend him to a fault. I agree with Baron here

With that said, peace


I disagree, peace..

Respect on a chill Friday night.

Did you like his 3pt shooting against Portland?


What was there to like about his 3 point shooting? This is what I mean, why would I defend his shooting when it was poor?

Because he took smart shots mostly in rhythm. Even though he missed all of them, the shot selection was a good sign for the rest of his season.

You asked if I liked his 3 point shooting, not the shot selection. Two entirely different things.

The answer is still no, I didn't like his shot selection for the most part. Not a fan of iso pull ups for contested mid range J's.

For comparisons sake go look at what DLO, Kuz and Randle were doing at age 21 or what Paul George (9pts/7rebs/2asts on 3-8 from the field) or DRoz (9pts/3rebs/2asts on 2-7 from the field) did on opening night at age 21. I hate the KD comparisons but take a look at his game log and how awful he was against Portland (the reach is long on this one but my point still stands) https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/d/duranke01/gamelog/2010/

So chill and enjoy the ride


well Tatum is only 20years and putting up solid numbers in playoffs and in regular season. same can be said of J Brown


Tatum is a special talent. Should’ve drafted him that will surely end up as a mistake. IMO if anyones going to be compared to Durant it should be him. Especially with the way he’s continued growing, that kid might be 6’10” now.

Hayward taller


You mean Horford? In that pic Horford looks slighty taller. In others Tatum looks taller or same height.


seeing what you wana see


https://ibb.co/mfo6t0

Am I still seeing what I want to see? This is a pretty good straight angle and Tatum appears to be the same height as Horford if not slightly taller.


LMAO


Not sure what’s funny.


I’m assuming he’s laughing at your altered version of his picture.

Unless he believes Horford is on his left and Tatum to the right

Could he?

You clearly have a bad read on me.. wasn't looking for a fight smh.

You probably thought I'd be offended by your statement, which is why you said what I quoted. I just thought it was funny.

In addition you mentioned my name unnecessarily, which didn't bother me.. but you can't think I'm looking for a fight when you evoked my name in something that had nothing to do with me.

Tatum isn’t honestly all that, not sure why we should feel bad that we did not draft him, it’s not a Michael Jordan and Sam Bowie situation, Tatum will be a legit all star and that’s it.

I saw the full stat line and it was pretty bad. Did Kawhi do his thing on Tatum or what?

I don't believe BVH was serious. I think he was quoting a line from Alex Guinness.

We all need to increase our profound wisdom so we can truly appreciate all BVH shares with us.

What I've learned from watching the last four seasons of tanking/rebuilding basketball is to be humble in the face of youth, because none of us really know where these young guys are going.

If you notice Horford is standing at least a foot back from Tatum. This will always distort height comparisons.

I honestly don't like Boston and you can include the Patriots.

Did not believe you were in a bad mood or BVH.

Just wanted to use the word Jovial
