Yup. Haven’t stopped grinning since tuning in and hearing him instead of Grant answer something Doug was saying.

It’s nice not being so consciously aware of how close the kings are to being in the bonus.

Why would D. Robinson all taking wide open 3 pts shot….
while our best 3 pt shooter, Buddy Hield, was taking all (a bit) contested shot…..

I do find it a bit funny that they practice social distancing on the bench, but the players are still banging around on the court and the team still huddles up at timeouts. Optics?

Reduction. While they’re all exposed to each other’s germs on the court, Corona seems to require some level of extended exposure to actually infect someone (unlike viruses that can infect with a single particle like Ebola). So, if a player is exposed for a shorter period of time and then returns to the bench where he can distance, he’s mitigating his exposure, and thus reducing his chance of infection.
 
It may or may not make a big difference, but it’s not a bad idea.

I’m convinced that Nemanja consulted a voodoo doll and decided he should vaguely resemble Tom Chambers.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. He looks less cut, but also looks bigger/stronger. Could be a different kind of muscle mass?

I just knew it was the same Buddy…as we all familiar with
as his poor ball handling skill resulted in a turnover….

He is not even staying with the team, and try to support his teammate

Actually, he might be required to leave by the NBA. I certainly see no reason why he should be in the bubble given he won’t be returning regardless of whether the NBA forced him out.
 
I do think he should be in Sacramento working with the medical staff, though. And for all we know, perhaps he was directed to go home. It might make more sense for the medical staff to go to Bagley than to expect him to come up to Sacramento given the current traveling dynamic.

I see Walton still has Buddy dribbling the ball around. He should take note how the Heat use Robinson. Catch and shoot. It’s that simple.

Perhaps it’s just today. But also could be the change associated with listening to a 78 year old man transitioning from AM radio to 4K.
 
Nobody has ever tired this before, conditions are strange for everyone, I like that Gary is understated. So, I bet he adjusts by the regular season. But in this already flat environment … he’s very flat.

Great to have some Basketball. Not much can be gleaned from the game. The Heat were minus their best player, Bam. So, was the Kings, Fox
 
Holmes, Len and Harrison not in the lineup. Heat starters played very few minutes.
 
I doubt we will get to see the full lineup until the first real game next week.
 
Nothing really stood out. Bucks next on the Pre.
