    Do some research next time !!
    With Little research you could have found the data.

    I could never forget him. Someone on Twitter a few weeks back was going on about how Little had “proved he belonged in the NBA” because he scored 5 points in 2 minutes of garbage time in one of the Suns’ games.

    And this person was serious.

    Wow, that take is beyond absurd. This Twitter poster of whom you speak would get eaten alive on DBR, which is a notoriously harsh and unforgiving environment.

    Harsh and unforgiving, yet generally quite friendly. You can't get away with "hot takes" that aren't fully justified around here, and people will tell you in a very respectful way all 37 ways in which you are wrong. It's an interesting juxtaposition, and that's what makes it great.

    You’re wrong. There’s at least 46 ways. Do your research!😁

    Some pro players make it into the record books. As a rookie, Dereck Lively made it into a reference book.

    Travis Branham writes a Lively bit of history today.

    CBS Sports: The rise of Dereck Lively II: From late-blooming high school star to Mavericks rookie revelation

    "When you get injured to start the year as a freshman, you're going through growing pains in real time during the season," [Jon] Scheyer said. "Usually, you go through them during the preseason, and so I thought he showed incredible mental toughness by just sticking with it, learning what it takes at that level, and obviously preparing him for the following year."

    Lively buckled down with then-assistant Amile Jefferson, a former Duke big man himself, to create daily habits in getting back to form. Jefferson is now an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics.

    "He had an amazing workout routine that he developed with Amile," Scheyer said. "He had an offensive routine and a defensive routine that he would do. He was consistent. We had multiple meetings where he just doubled down on what he needed to do, and he didn't make any excuses. That's what you love about him, and that's why he got better."

    once again Derek Lively vs Daniel Gafford's +/- was exactly the difference in the game, +19 vs -15 in a 3pt win. It's almost like the Mavs play better when D-Live's in the game.

    Took a while, but Kyrie's Duke education finally shines through.😉

    Indeed. Perhaps some of the life-long relationships he formed at Duke have helped him mature.

    ESPN: Pistons set to hire Trajan Langdon as new president of basketball ops

    The Detroit Pistons are planning to hire New Orleans Pelicans general manager Trajan Langdon as the franchise's new president of basketball operations, and sides are beginning work on a deal expected to be completed soon, sources told ESPN on Thursday...

    The Pistons ran a lengthy search, which included coordination with TurnkeyZRG managing director Billy King, before whittling the list of candidates down to Langdon's offer on Thursday.
    Yes, that Billy King. The Brotherhood: a place for job networking, and not just a marketing gimmick.

    I'm sure our current and former Michigan natives will chime in, but this is an interesting opportunity for Langdon to either add to a roster with a ton of promising young players, or maybe trade some of those players in an effort to change course. And unlike most years, picking #5 in this wide-open draft could result in someone they'd consider to be a top-tier player.

    I'm not clear on where his position ranks vs. the GM? Who reports to who? Who is the ultimate decision maker? And King was an outside consultant? I need to see an org chart.
