yeah wld agree that injuries are the biggest threat to zinger superstardom, the health record of guys his height is not too good

lag∞n, Friday, 12 January 2018 16:10 (one year ago) link

maybe all the guys in this poll are bad actually, embiid is still as undisciplined as a rookie and the other two cant defend

lag∞n, Friday, 12 January 2018 16:11 (one year ago) link

simmons also is bad giannis is good tho

lag∞n, Friday, 12 January 2018 16:13 (one year ago) link

but it wld be good to get a look at the zinger on a functional/team org, seeing dirk on that list of seven footers who managed big minutes and usage makes me wonder if his goto elbow shot wasnt just employed so much cause it was effective but also cause it didnt use that much energy, zinger shd just practice that shot lol

from Lowes piece:

• Porzingis has hit half of his shots in three of his past 16 games. He doesn't rebound or pass enough; his go-to move is catching the ball 15 feet from the rim, whipping around without taking a dribble or scanning the court, and launching. When he's going badly, Porzingis almost looks like a rich man's Harrison Barnes -- a guy who gets buckets one-on-one in the middle of the court, but doesn't really elevate his team in doing so.

one month passes...

I voted KAT, who I predict is not going to be a consensus winner here due to his conspicuous defensive failings. otoh, I predict he will be extremely durable physically and have a long and very productive career, during which time, if he starts to get to the playoffs regularly, he'll improve his defense enough to not be a liability.

Embiid may surpass KAT in my esteem in the next few years, but his durability is open to doubt. As a Blazer fan, I've seen too many talented bigs go down in flames with shortened careers due to injury.

I get bad vibes from KAT

what kind of bad vibes?

Admittedly haven't seen a whole lot of him, but from what I have seen he strikes me as lacking qualities that old dudes like me value: heart, toughness, fire, things of that nature. I can't see building a champ-caliber team around him.

The unanswered question on KAT: is he Shaq-style unserious or Dwight-style unserious?

A is for (Aimless), Wednesday, 7 March 2018 20:06 (one year ago) link

i was down on kat bigtime upthread for playing some of the worst defense ever but since then hes been totally better that fast improvement is heartening imho, on the flipside zingers stock is fn down exhaustion then injury does not bode well

lag∞n, Wednesday, 7 March 2018 20:52 (one year ago) link

yeah man zinger has dropped significantly.

wtf, complications or is just cos he's a giant? horrible news.

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 19 April 2018 20:45 (one year ago) link

sounds like it cld just be dolan running his mouth tbh

“I’ve been told everything from December to him being out for the season, so I don’t know what to expect on that,” Dolan told the New York Post’s Larry Brooks this week. “But we can’t just sit on our ass while he’s away. We need to develop a team and then integrate him into it when he comes back.”

lag∞n, Thursday, 19 April 2018 20:47 (one year ago) link

love when dolan gets more involved

they call me melo gelo (Spottie), Thursday, 19 April 2018 20:50 (one year ago) link
