    Was anyone else in the NBA with Vroman, Shirley, and Hoiberg?

    Loren Meyer was in the league between 1995 and 2001.

    I think Cato may have been. Not sure if there was any overlap in that 2004-2005 time frame.

    Monte at the line, in a pressure situation:



    The Nuggets are on TNT tonight.

    Plumlee is such a ********. He’s just killing Monte this year.

    Monte's line in a comeback win vs. the Nets: 19 MIN, 10 PTS, 4-11 FG, 1-2 3PT, 3 REB, 7 AST, 1 STL and, natch, 0 TO.

    I checked and Monte currently has 41 assists in the first 11 games to go with 5 turnovers. An assist-to-turnover ratio of better than 8 to 1 would definitely get him paid after his rookie contract is up.

    After a very slow start to the season in scoring, he's raised his PPG to 7.1 with 3 double-digit games in his last 5.

    It's good to see him getting some work in. I think the Lakers would've wanted him to play in the G League before he was injured but I'm sure he's even months behind where he wanted to started the season.

    Chance tonight to see Georges ... cheer on the bench(?). The Jazz are on ESPN tonight at 8 ET / 7 CT against Memphis (and Ja Morant). Georges has not been getting PT so I'm going to DVR it and watch if he gets some PT. There was some criticism of Niang on the J Notes site that he's been too tentative on offense so far (I was thinking it's tough to be too aggressive when your role is to spot up in the corner and you play in 2-minute stretches).

    OKC plays the 76ers and that's on my cable system so I'll watch it if Deonte or Abdel gets off the pine. Deonte had a good game in OKC's last outing so maybe they'll give him some run.

    I think this season is a test for Monte...and he’s learning that every season is different and he will have to adapt. He’s doing a good job.

    I just got a chance to look at the video highlights of THT. He had some filthy passes in those clips including a cross-body, half-court pass to a guy under the bucket. He looks healthy in those shots. I wonder how his conditioning is.

    Good for him. Would have loved to see him play 1 more year, but good to see him on his way.

    Hopefully Monte can get confidence in that 3 pt shot again. Defenders are giving him so much space that his pick and rolls aren't as effective and he isn't getting to his mid-range jump shot spots as well.

    So far, the leading scorer in the G League is one Mr. Marial Shayok at 38 ppg, according to the G League's website. Granted, that's only 2 games but he's off to a good start.

    This is too bad because we all know that the NBA doesn't value scorers.

    Made more step backs in this game than all of last season.

    That’s why he came here.
