    Seemed like TH was trying that early on in the season..perhaps it didn't work since the result was mainly failure.

    The overall management of egos falls on the head coach. CSP left it for 'God' to decide' last year so maybe he doesn't want to deal with it either, haha.

    Ben Simmons was on a bad team. I don’t fault Haliburton for not being able to perform miracles with this team.

    Isn't Haliburton another Lonzo Ball, or is that a stupid comparison?

    TH isn't really a hunt your shot kind of player. When he is making threes though he looks like the best player in the country. Opens up the drive, and his flow is always better when working off the defense's action. They just pack the paint because teams know we have no shooters.

    Tyrese is also a team player, so I understand, but if your looking at it from a logical standpoint, you make zero sense.

    Not sure but I'd love if TH is ever averaging 30 minutes and 10 points/game for a career in the NBA.

    Wouldn’t be what an NBA team picking 5th is looking for though.

    He's created more wide open 3's this year than any college player I have ever seen. It's not his fault no one can hit them.

    I just meant a similar style of player with a similar game?

    They both even have odd looking set shots.

    Imagine if guys actually made shots. His assists go way up, his open looks go up, etc.
    he will go, which he should. And next year- if Prohm is retained- is an absolute nightmare for us fans.

    Lonzo was #2. Although his accolades and abilities were generally stronger.

    Right and I said 5th because that’s what Haliburton is being projected at right now.

    Yeah kinda I think...Lonzo iirc had at least a quicker release. He led the nation in assists but also played on a 3 seed.

    Give TH a situation where he's not having to be the main focus and he's likely more effective.

    If he ended up on the Warriors with Klay and Steph, then that would probably be a dream scenario.

    Plenty of football players? What's the difference between that and basketball? What's the difference between leaving early? You're still part of a team so you're leaving them. You're allowed you're opinion, but doesnt mean you have to be a douche about it.
