Warriors 97 Pistons 69
Biggest disappointment: Sean Singletary- man has this guy really fallen off since his great days at Virginia
Deron Washington is certainly a great athlete that gets to the rim easily. However, he is below average at every other aspect of the game. I don't see him ever making an impact in the league.
Austin Daye looked alright. He is getting tougher. Looks like he is getting stronger underneath the basket. His handles are OK for a big man but he often dribbles too much and it gets him into trouble. He shouldn't get much playing time this year.
Summers- once again I have to say it. He looks like LeBron as far as the body type, the way they move & shoot. Still Summers doesn't have near the skills LeBron does. He has to work on his defense, ball handling, & passing for sure. Still looks like an nba player. If he continues to improve I think he will become a starting SF in the league one day. At worst he is a very solid backup.
Jerebko- shot better tonight than the last time I saw him. This guy plays with a lot of energy. He is very physical. Certainly doesn't shy away from contact. Looks like he has a pretty descent vertical. He needs to take it to the rim more.
Best Player- Anthony Randolph- nuff said
My sleeper for this season Morrow had a very solid game. Shot the ball pretty well and played good defense. Not to mention he grabbed some rebounds.
No way Acie Law plays many minutes at PG for the Warriors this season. Curry & Ellis can both run the point a lot better than Law can.
Cartier Martin looked solid but he is just an average player. He won't hurt a team but won't help the Warriors either this season.
Stephen Curry can easily play PG like I have been telling people. He had 5 steals which was impressive. He is actually a very pesky defender. He is certainly a gunner but with a shot like his that is a good thing.
Joe Ingles needs to go back to Australia. He looked terrible. He looks like somebody I would play against everyday at the YMCA.
Bucks 91 Kings 86
Most Disapointing: McNeal...he just looked like he doesn't belong in the nba. I thought he would do well in summer league but I was wrong.
Donte Greene looked like he didn't even care about the game. I think this is why he hasn't improved much and may never reach his potential.
Jason Thompson did not look good at all. I don't know why people always say he is so good. I have been saying this is the dude that the Kings should trade.
Brockman did his usual. He will always be a good guy to bring off the bench to snag some boards.
Casspi did not impress me. He looked a little lost. I have to see more of him.
Best Player: Tyreke Evans- here we go again. He once again proved that he can play PG. He was matched up against Jennings for the majority of the game. Passed the ball pretty well but he also got the ball stolen from him a couple times. He just looks weird playing PG because he is so tall. His handles are there and he sees the floor better than people give him credit for. He got absolutely no help this game. It looked like he was playing 1 on 5...seriously.
Jodie Meeks had a very very quiet 20 points. He is just solid. Very nice backup to Michael Redd.
Moute didn't do much. He was average, he didn't play with much energy tonight.
Joe Alexander was aggressive finally. He also shot well. The potential is there. Can he play like this consistently?
Brandon Jennings looked very impressive. Still needs to work on his jumpshot and he forces things sometimes. He was throwing some great passes. A lot of his turnovers were not his fault. His teammates were always a step behind. Even though Jennings is skinny he makes up for that on defense by being very pesky. He puts great pressure on the ball and ripped Evans a couple times.
the only thing that bothered me about tyreke is hes trying to force the ball to much and had 7tos but i guess thats what happens when you have no teamates. Another note about tyreke is he got to the line 19 times him and K-mart are going to get teams in foul trouble a lot. jt was most disappointing i think, 3-10 with 6 tos 3-8 on ft and only 5 rebounds and in the words of sir charles and mark jackson "terrible" and "ur better then that" even if you were playing out of postion.
Looks like the Kings have young guys that arent playing well. They need to trade some of them, I would have to say Donte Greene should be the 1st guy on the block
that was a very fair assesment of the players......evans turnovers had a lot to do with the pesky defense jennings played...evans had the better game as a player but as a pg jennings had a better game due to the fact that evans had 7ast but also 7 turnovers which is what you dont want from youre starting pg
Yeah Evans had 7asst but 7 turnovers. He has to get better at that ratio for sure. The rest of the Kings roster was just standing around on offense which cause Evans to turn it over a lot.
As for the Kings...yeah I think they should trade Greene, Garcia, Nocioni & Thompson haha. I really do. They can get some quality players in return for those guys.
I still think SAC should trade for Boozer. They are one of the few teams with cap space that can pull off a trade with Utah without having to involve a 3rd team. Kings get: Boozer Utah gets: Greene & Garcia This would allow Utah to resign Milsap.
Another possible trade: Kings get: Tyson Chandler & Julian Wright Hornets get: Greene, Nocioni, & Thompson
