LOL, at the Kings starting lineup. Fox, Buddy, COJO, Bagley, and Whiteside. Walton doesn’t know whether to wind is ass or scratch his watch.

Lawrence Welk, but you have to get really high first. No joke, that was a college pastime of mine.

Is he wrong? Do you not see an improved Bagley over the last 20 games as a whole compared to early in season? He plays more in the flow, less forcing, hitting jumpers etc. Perfect….obviously not. Still flaws. But if you don’t see him improving and game slowing down, then you aren’t watching.

Yeah I get it. The point is the guy plays his best half all season and people still shit can him. He can’t erase the first couple years, injuries, disappointment etc in one half, 10 games or even 30 games. But he has undeniably improved over the last 20 games or so. The hate on him is a bit exhausting and doesn’t seem no matter what he does people won’t acknowledge improvement. I don’t what he will be…but I’m still intrigued at this point and they aren’t getting great value for him so maybe just find out.

And you never acknowledge if he ever plays well. Ever. Take a walk over to basketball reference and check out Bosh, stoudemire, alridge stats from games about 83-103 of their career. Bags last twenty games. Strangely familiar to bags stats when you account for less mins he has. Will he turn out like those guys…likely not. But It is possible that he may prove to be a starting caliber player.

One that’s just a ridiculous take. Even if he only got putbacks, which he doesn’t, doing it at a good rate is a valuable skill. The #2 pick aspect has nothing to do with it now. He’s a team asset. The task is to determine his worth and future role. Whatever that may be. We know your position. It’s stated every single game regardless of play.

That is the only thing about his game that drives me nuts. It seems like he doesn’t adequately calm and set himself before the first free throw, because it seems like those are the ones that he most often misses.

But if I’d missed two in a row, I’d have the yips so bad for the third that I’d be luck to hit iron.

Bagley is such an enigma. But I think he’s a really talented pro if he could learn to execute consistently. Putting the words into numbers, I’d say I need him hitting 55-60% on his 2ptrs, and 35-37% on his 3ptrs. At 10 2s and 5 3s per night, he’s hitting about an EFG of 55% or so and hanging up 20-25 a night along with his usual 10 rebounds. If he can hit these numbers, and make his defense and passing close to league average, that’s a starting caliber stretch 4, right?

Him putting additional weight on his joints will slow him down, and likely lead to new injuries. Through work, he’ll get stronger, and he’ll add weight as he ages, but another twenty pounds for the sake of it is a terrible idea.

He’s a beanpole. Marcus Camby remined invisible sideways his entire career, but he managed to have a pretty good one.

This is the Marvin Bagley that we’d hoped to see from the time he was selected. This past month, his court awareness and activity around the hoop have just been excellent. Games like this are feeling more expected, and less like surprises.

Like… you must be kidding me. There are literally 3 Bagley trade proposals in the Forum right now, not to mention the ones that come up in threads at various times. I’ll clarify… “That’s why all these trade ideas…”

I’m not even against trading him if you were getting some value for him…but that’s not going to happen right now. So the point of selling on him at this point feels foolish.

Yeah I wasn’t saying your proposals were bad…just that they are out there. Been more frequent in game threads where people are upset in the moment I suspect. But I’m not going searching for those : ) I distinctly remember seconds talk and separately Malik Monk.

Almost feels like we may be able to sign him at good value with upside? It will be interesting to see where things stand with him when his rookie deal is up. He’s a total wild card. May be a franchise cornerstone in 3-5 years, may be on someone else’s team in 30 days.
