I am reading that Andrew Wiggins is stinking it up at Golden State.



4-16 Bricklaying in Brooklyn

on the other coast, former Gopher Amir Coffey got that all important 1 minute on the floor in the Clippers win.

Andrew Wiggins: 4 for 16 shooting, 13 points, two rebounds and one assist for a minus-28 in 31 minutes.

A very familiar looking stat line.

The NBA's most-hyped rookie had a dud of a debut.

LaMelo Ball saw his first NBA action as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat his Charlotte Hornets, 121-114, in Wednesday’s season opener. His playing time was limited. As was his contribution on the court.

In 16 minutes, Ball logged zero points, three assists, one rebound, two steals and three turnovers. He missed all five of his field-goal attempts. It’s certainly not what Hornets fans were hoping for from the No. 3 pick in the draft.

It places him alongside the company of Greg Oden, Hasheem Thabeet and Otto Porter Jr. as the only top-three picks in NBA history to go scoreless in their NBA debuts — not exactly elite company.

I bet the Hornets are regretting standing firm in not offering the Wolves what it took for the #1 pick.
I think if we had traded with them the Warriors would have taken Edwards and we would have been stuck with drafting ball or trying to trade back again.

He scored more today, but in game 1 he had a scoring flurry late in a blowout.

Wiggins 0 assists, lol.

Wiggins put up 18 shots in only 25 minutes.

And managed 12 points...

Wasn't he playing in a European League that is probably equal to NAIA talent.

In an Australian league comparable to the "non-elite" NCAA conferences.

Hopefully he develops like Lonzo and can have a nice career. The Dad makes them easy to cheer against but it's not their fault that their father is an idiot.

Pissed about their bubble ball performance. Holiday starting to figure it out playing with Giannis. They will need him to be aggressive offensively.

No Butler and you start Leonard and Harkless. You didn't get the defense you expected, and I'm not surprised it took them five minutes to make a FG.

In the not surprising news, Thibodeau is going to run Randle to death. He's clearly exhausted and he refuses to give him a rest.

Bucks set the record for most 3s in a game, and Giannis was the only guy on the roster not to make at least 1.

Short offseason, even shorter training camp.

There are always weird games early before teams and players find their groove. This year it’s magnified.
