Good lord, look at THT's assist here:
Deonte - and Nader - getting 1st quarter minutes tonight vs. the Lakers. Nice cut and finish by DB:
Last year was so weird but THT was made to basically be what they call a point guard in the NBA these days. Once he gets his handle tightened up and continues to refine his step back and fade away game he will be really valuable. And that’s why you don’t wait and you go, because you don’t get enough games and specialized practice time to refine the kind of skills he has while in college.
Good points. Writing a research paper isn't going to help your cross-over.
Our guys aren't exactly playing a SWAC team tonight ...
Nader and Burton both had rotation minutes in a loss vs. the Lakers last night, as noted above. DB ended with 4 PTS on 2-2 shooting in 11 minutes. Nader had 10 MIN and 5 PTS on 1-2 3PT and 2-2 3PT, including this textbook catch-and-shoot:
I checked and Nader was shooting under 30% from 3 going into the game.
This is my favorite thread on CF right now. Great stuff!
SIAP but saw this over the weekend, and was in awe. It is one of the better fake spin moves I've seen. And it helps he made the shot too.
Dang! He created like 7 feet of space for himself to get his shot off.
It was so crisp and hard too. I don't know if anyone could stop that move, unless they have it made up in their mind that it is coming.
it blew my mind a little bit last night when I saw two former Cyclones guarding LBJ...and doing ok with it. Really makes the nba easier to watch for me....should be a good winter for nba games and Cyclone fans...
Gonna be a real long winter for Hok fans...
What are they doing playing in Fort Worth?
His game is so perfect for the NBA right now. Notice how he even faded when he knew he was wide open? That’s what the G league is for, he’s going to need that fade when he’s playing in the real show.
Not going to lie, I don't have any idea what this means/is referring to.
Yeah sorry, that was a little obscure. The light colored court reminds me of that TCU eyesore.
I'm always amazed on how so many of the G-League venues look like big high school gyms. Definitely not a glorious route to get into the league. I'm glad they have upped their pay a bit.
That is a move that you see in the league for sure. His passing has looked good as well, though we all knew he had a really good feel in that aspect of his game. I think his conditioning and ability to not force things are key to him climbing the ladder to playing in the league regularly. He has all of the tools, he just needs to become more consistent.
Even worse, I kept on reading it as Fort Wayne. So I thought you were asking why they were playing Fort Wayne Mad Ants. We were all over the place there lol. But thanks for the clarification
The other x factor for THT is Lebron. I’m interested to see if he starts taking the time to mentor younger guys like THT in the coming years (maybe not this year as they’ve got a great shot at the title) as that is not something I feel like he really had to a certain extent when he came in to the league.
