hope to see more of him today versus the Jazz band. I really like the confidence he displayed last night, and his game is so polished on D.

Somebody tell me the harm in him starting.

Ingramís value, like Randleís, will increase by him playing less minutes and being brought along efficiently.

Hartís ready for more impactful minutes.

Small sample size alert.

Hart's Per36 Stats with tonight's game included: 10.9 PPG, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 steals.

More importantly than the numerical stats, he plays great team defense and seldom makes mistakes. I'd be curious to see him run the point for the second unit. Couldn't be much worse than Ennis, could he?


He's passing up shots to the veterans. It's weird seeing him hesitate for a second, especially when he had the full green light at Villanova.

Not concerned about scoring. He has WAY more upside than just 10ppg.


I was one of the few people who was unimpressed watching Hart's games at Villanova (I'm willing to admit I was wrong on him). I felt like he forced a lot of shots in the paint against superior length (and got a few blocked). Now I feel he's not taking enough shots.

I feel like Hart has a chance to be a better SG in our system than a former highly drafted Lakers guard. Blasphemy? Perhaps. I'm just excited with his potential and what he's showing thus far. Total team player, great character, and gives maximum effort on both ends. He's got some sneaky athleticism (that rimmed in dunk last night notwithstanding).

I think this guy has done a good job with the few minutes hes gotten. I really can't say anything bad about him. He's not flashy, but he seems to make the right plays.

I think that Hart should have the green light to shoot than Ingram has. Because it makes more sense for him to have a green light to take an open three.

Hart is one of those pieces you want off your bench in order to help you win rings. The only issue I had with this past draft was not buying the pick that netted J Bell but the fact that we got 3 guys who can play right away and all have varying ceilings is awesome. Hopefully Bryant can do the same

I think they're better together. JC is a much better as a primary ball handler than as a two-guard.

JC + Hart is a pretty nice little backup backcourt.

Can he play point? GH can be depended on to run the offense and protect the ball. I like Hart a lot but he looks like a SG. Hart is making the D'Lo trade a little easier to swallow.

Not sure if he can but I think he can duplicate some of the offensive skills that Hill has.

George Hill wasn't a pure point out of IUPUI.

and G hill is still not that great at point. he's a nice backup on a championship team. but he might be a legit starting play scoring guard. he's just not tall enough for my liking.

That read and pass to Randle in the second quarter just now was some high level stuff. Love Hart.

6'1"
6'9" wingspan.

That's more than fine.

You get the feeling that the guy has sooo much more to show. Nance, as a rookie coming from his senior year, was just figuring out how to play within himself. Hart, as a rookie coming from his senior year, seems to have this confidence that he knows what he is doing, but wants to fit in. There is something about this guy that makes me feel like he's going to be a lot more than he is right now.

I'm not saying all-star, but a 12-15PPG scorer who can backup either the PG or SG spots with some great defense, nice clutch 3pt shooting and a hell of a lot of "doesn't show in the box score" plays? Definitely.

Him and Nance are definitly players you want on the bench in a championship team...
I'd say a roster of :

Ball
Ingram
PG13
LeBron
Randle
Kuzma
Nance
Hart

is intriguing...
Difficult financially from what I heard but if possible...

The fact that both he and Zo are such good rebounders for guards is quite dangerous, especially with the way our forwards (Ingram, Nance, Randle and Kuzma) can get up and down the floor. It's what will allow us to play even faster.
