NBA 2020-21 Season Catch-All

This is a really good bit by Kirk Goldsberry about Lillard’s range and how he built it. In the first couple of minutes there’s a couple of absolutely astonishing stats.

So the Raptors might actually be decent? I was worried about VanVleet as a lead guard on his own but the dude seems to have taken another step forward.

I've been seeking out Jazz highlights these past few weeks. That's one hell of a team this year.

I had full confidence in VaVleet but it was the rest of the roster that gave me pause. Lowry is another year older and really takes a beating. Siakam has really struggled to consistently find his game since the bubble and was even having some problems as a the #1 guy before that. Losing the Ibaka-Gasol hydra hurt more than I anticipated since Baynes has just not fit in.

The good news is Powell is finally healthy and finding his game again. Anunoby is a defensive force. Boucher, despite looking like he weighs 100lbs, has transformed into a legit threat. They look like a team with a lot of good complimentary pieces that need a star to coalesce around...ah haha ha.

Write-up from ESPN on Dame Lillard and his association with boxing.

So happy for Boucher's growth this year. I think it's also funny how the commentators always talk about him as a kid, or a young guy, but he's the third oldest player on the team at 28...

Masai sent Ibaka to LA to bring Kawhi back next year, right?

Yeah he seems so much older than he is because he didn't start college basketball until he was already 20 and did the full 4 years.

The next time they play the Clippers Ibaka and Kawhi will rip off their jerseys to reveal Raptor jerseys then put Paul George through a table.
