7 foot and only 9 rebounds in the D league?!?!?!? He must be soft.

Pretty ordinary name for a Croatian dude.  Sounds like a weak 7 footer who shoots to many outside shots to me I really don't like the european style of play at the 4 spot considering we already have a stretch 4 that can't shoot.  First Mullens, then McRoberts, now this guy.   Yes you want a guy to hit a 15 to 20 footer relatively consistently, but not a guy that gets easily rooted out of the post and has no put back strength.

The NBA's high priest of lineup data was the first person to point this out to me, in 2009; Wayne Winston's theory of NBA lineups is basically if you play two or more guys who can't shoot, the lineup is very likely to perform poorly, even if it's loaded with good players. More recently Winston looked up lineups with four shooters, and found they were almost all excellent. 

And that's against any and all defenses.

A few years ago Dwight Howard and a bunch of otherwise unremarkable 3-point shooters had one of the best offenses in recent NBA history.

The Warriors' playoff run only took off when an injury to David Lee forced them to start four 3-point shooters.

The Heat haven't lost a playoff series since they adopted a strategy of playing 3-point shooters with their superstars.

you need guys who can shoot. Read the excerpt I posted from "live by the 3, or die"

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
