    Your welcome brother. I'm glad your enjoying some basketball again. I would love to see more of our guys on these teams too. I will say that having the
    reigning NBA MVP in Jokic and another true Super Star in Luka Doncic has made it alot more enjoyable. Just like with Steve Nash winning 2 MVP Trophys
    back with the Suns or Dirk Nowitzki winning the MVP and a Nba Championship with the Dallas Mavs!

    Chett Holmgreen is a freshman on Gonzaga. I see him leaving for the NBA very soon. He will be a superstar in my honest opinion. He can do everything.

    Another guy I love is 21 year old Tyler Herro who is an all star talent who can do everything. I really like 19 year old rookie Josh Giddey too along with many other players.

    Great list. One guy to add was Frank “The Tank” Kaminsky who scored 31 points with 7 rebounds off the bench. Earlier this season the guy was getting DNPs night after night. Glad the foolish coach finally realized his error.

    I love watching him play for the Wisoncin Badgers. What a team with Kaminsky and Decker along with many other great white basketball players. One of my favorite
    teams of all team but they just barely came up short in the national championship game. Kaminsky should be a starter but his lack of a tan holds him back in this clown
    world. Even Decker seems to have dissapeared into the oblivion. It happens to so many of our guys. Still angry to this day about Jimmer Fredette!

    Kaminsky has a great feel and a really good outside shot for a big-man. His moves remind me of the great Serbian of the 90's Lakers and 2000's Kings, Vlade Divac. Same smooth moves and excellent passing.

    Jimmy Butler was out for the Heat so Tyler Herro got only his 2nd start of the year. How did he do you ask?

    Tyler Herro 27 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.
    Duncan Robinson 22 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal.

    It would be great if the Miami Heat would start both of these guys the rest of the year. They went with a 3 guard lineup today
    against the Jazz and controlled most of the game in a win on the road.

    For the Utah Jazz Bojan Bogdanavich had 26 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.

    After a career year, TJ McConnell is still averaging the exact same minutes off the bench for the hapless Pacers. His steals per game average has dropped from 1.9 to 0.9, his assists are down from 6.6 to 5.4, but he's shooting and scoring more than ever before. Indiana should let him run the offense and find more shots for Domantas and the other shooters, but their most major offseason move was letting Doug McDermott walk in free agency.

    This season's McConnell is new Chicago Bull Alex Caruso. He is within a small fraction of the league lead in steals with 2.5 per game, and his entire stat line is sitting at career highs. The Lakers preferred to bring in a roster full of junk rather than resign him below market value, and now they are middling at .500 despite currying the favor of the league's referees. Foolish! Glad the Lakers are playing Austin Reaves as an undrafted rookie though - they lucked into a diamond in the rough there thanks to anti-white prejudice from the other 29 franchises.

    I'm happy to see Tyler Herro take his game to the next level. The Miami Heat have a true superstar in the making so why don't they embrace him more?
    They should realise that this 21 year old is just starting a very long and outstanding career! They might want to keep the kid. His stats speak for themselves.
    At the point guard position he is averaging 22 pts, 6 rebounds and 4 assists per night. All for a kid barely old enough to just now get into the bars & clubs!

    Thanks for all the stats WL and great pic of Herro! I’m also happy to see Strus in double figures he has next level potential as well if given the minutes.

    DAMN! That was an explosive poster dunk with the stare down afterwards. Yes the Heat have alot of very talented young guards. That's the only reason other than old age
    that they let go of Goran Dragic. I feel bad for Dragic going from the sunny beaches of Florida to the Frozen Tundra of Toronto. At least he is making a great career.

    If I were the Miami Heat I would not have traded for Kyle Lowry. He is very talented but they have young guys more than capable of similar performances. Anyways,
    let's hope that they give Max Strus a solid 20 minutes plus off the bench. I'm not holding my breath but the kid can really ball out. I'm guessing they had to do it to make
    the Dragic Trade work. Lowry is a good player but even so he is only averaging 12 pts, 5 reb and 7 assists. Good numbers but they have too many guards on this team. They
    might look to look at another trade for another big man down low to help with depth in the future.

    El Gringo you and me got our wish. The Miami Heat continue their win streak and both Herro and Strus are a good part of the offense.
    Duncan Robinson had a rare off night shooting the ball as he ended up with only 6 points. Rare for a sharp shooter like him. He will be fine.

    Tyler Herro 19 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds and 1 steal
    Max Strus 15 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist


    I'm gonna watch the Dallas Mavs vs the Phoenix Suns in about 30 minutes. Hope the Mavs crush the Suns!

    Awesome!! Thanks for the stats good buddy!

    Kispert actually played decent minutes last night and wouldn’t you know it he produced! It’s hard to shoot consistently when you are only playing 5 minutes a game. https://sports.yahoo.com/corey-kispert-shows-promise-best-035009877.html

    Wow it looks like he has been working on his game a lot! I can’t believe he got back up after those falls.

    I want to keep up to date on the young guys that should be in the NBA but I believe will be brought up later in the year. If not next year as they continue to improve
    their games on both sides of the ball. Here is Joe Wieskamp in his latest outing. Looking good with 22 pts.

    The Miami Heat continue to bring Tyler Herro off the bench. I will say one thing though. At least they give him alot of minutes.

    Herro had 31 pts, 8 rebounds and 3 assists in a big win for the Heat! The kid can score from
    anywhere on the floor. Video hilights posted below. :)

    It's okay by me. Sometimes the top 6th man gets a lot of love from the fans. This excites the player and they thrive off the crowd. Hats off to Herro!

    The Mavs win in Overtime over the Clippers. They finally got Doncic back to stop their losing streak. They play so much better when he is on the floor.

    Luka Doncic had 26 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal & 2 blocks just missing another triple double. Good return after missing a few games with a sprained ankle.
    Kristapps Porzingis is finally starting to play like the All Star Center we all know he is. He had 30 points with 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot!

    What I really like is now Doncic is up to 25 points per game and Porzingis at 21 pts per game! What
    a dynamic duo they are. This is the team to watch with two starting white all stars!

    I wonder how many 20 plus point per game scorers have been 6th men in the history of the league? Great game by Herro regardless! The kid has a ton of confidence despite being a bench player and isn’t content on being a perimeter floater like a lot of white guys. Our boy Strus with the DNP??

    Yeah Max Strus didn't play. With Jimmy Butler and Lowry both back they just don't have enough minutes for everyone. I said this before but i don't think Kyle Lowry
    is that good. Jimmy Butler is very good but if I were the Heat I would cut Lowry after the season. They have so many guards and as I've said countless times Tyler Herro
    should be starting. The 21 year old Herro is now averaging 22.1 points per night off the bench! That's insane production. If the Heat eventually got rid of Lowry, they could
    start Herro and then bring Strus off the bench for regular minutes.
