    Why would he play to the crowd? If anything, he wants to put pressure on the team. His best outcome is Celtics sign him for as much as possible, right?

    Apparently Lakerland is going insane over this sequence from the end of their most recent preseason game where Brandon Ingram's length is on full display. Watch the entire clip... that's some scary stuff!

    Nope. They were booing him for his racial slur: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...ng-racist-slur

    And his performance further proves that JJ thrives on hate

    3 Dukies on the Floor at One Time

    In the first half of the Kings - Warriors game tonight, Cook, Bagley, and Giles were on the court at the same time for several minutes toward the end of the 2nd period. But Durant and Thompson putting on a show giving the Warriors a 30 point half-time lead even with Curry and Green sitting out.

    I don't think anyone has talked about Grayson in this thread yet. He's been having solid to great numbers off the bench, both in minutes and in points.
    Last night put up 16 in 6-8 shooting in 24 minutes of play. (Also led the Jazz in turnovers, with 4.)

    And...Grayson still loves to dunk.

    Here are some highlights. Apparently Grayson is ready for the NBA.

    Lance Thomas a Keeper for the Knicks

    A nice article about how the new Head Coach of the Knicks, Dave Fizdale, is appreciating what Lance Thomas continues to bring to the NY Knicks. No news to readers of this forum, although Lance's expanded offensive skill set just shows that he never stopped learning 'basketball'. Never stop learning is a Duke trait, right?!

    The longest-tenured Knick, Thomas was a co-captain last season with Courtney Lee, who hasnít played yet because of a sore neck. Thereís a chance Thomas and center Enes Kanter will be voted by the players as co-captains this season.
    Not bad for a guy that won't make it in the NBA.

    Whoever would have thought back in 2007-2010 Lance Thomas would have such a better NBA career than Kyle Singler. The guy averaged ~4 ppg in college.

    Amazing his achievement and perhaps just as amazing, the irrelevance of Singler's NBA career.

    How about including Nolan Smith in this comparison?

    Simply shows that the NBA is a different game. Thomas was ranked 20th by RSCI- same class as Durant and Oden. At 6'9" he found a niche as an active defender and then worked on his shooting, which has allowed him to stick. Singler did not make the necessary adjustments to his game - and his shooting became increasingly less consistent with time. He had a few decent years and made some money- but he never really committed to get better as a pro. Still, many players would do anything for his overall career.

    Yep, although Kyle has made more money -- to date plus guarantee. Lance will go ahead if he gets another contract. Neither one is likely to starve to death.

    this has been brought up before. It kinda depends on how you look at it. Kyle leads LT in almost all counting stats, largely due to a few seasons there where he played pretty well. It's just that Kyle's good years were bunched near the beginning whereas LT's best years have come more recently. Lance even has one extra year of NBA seniority on Kyle (well, 2 now that Kyle is not in the NBA anymore).
    However, LT may very well end up with better counting stats in addition to better advanced stats. Kyle leads in pts by about 500, which LT could certainly reach. Plus, longevity and importance with age are important factors that would probably make a pretty convincing argument for LT having the better career, even if only counting up until '17-'18.
