Mannion getting some minutes for warriors last couple games and played well.

Pritchard out for a couple weeks, he has started out very promising. Russian for Oklahoma has been slow, but he was always going to be a long term project

Looking forward to watching alot of basketball this weekend. Both college and nba.

Another player who continues to improve his game is 23 year old Lauri Markkanen. He plays for the Chicago Bulls and he is having a great start to this season.


Lauri Markkanen is currently averaging 19 pts a game and 7 rebounds to go with 1 assist. Despite starting he doesn't get that many shots compared to other starters but he
is growing into a potential future all star. Not crazy about the team he is on but there is always free agency down the road. He is 7 feet tall yet can run, jump, and cut with
guys way smaller than him. Amazingly he plays power forward despite having a centers body type. All around very gifted basketball player. Check him out guys!

One of the most athletic guys in the league.. Bulls need to keep using him correctly

I will say this. Even though it's early in the nba season, I've never seen so many white guys averaging over 20 pts a game in a few decades!

2020/2021 nba scoring stats points per game:

Luka Doncic 27 pts per game

Nikola Jokic 26 pts per game

Nikola Vucevic 23.5 pts per game

Gordon Hayword 23 pts per game

Domantas Sabonis 22 pts per game

Tyler Herro will be there soon as will Lauri Markannen. So currently we have 5 but will soon have 7 or more. It's a start and we need to see more of the teams trust in our guys to help win more games.

The Mavericks finally won a close game. Maxi Kleber with the 3 pt dagger to close it out. Kleber was out a couple weeks due to Covid protocols. He’s working his way back into shape, so I expect the Mavs to improve.

I don't why they don't play Boban Marjonovic. He's a really good player, and he's huge.
Especially tonight, they would have had such an advantage with him. They won, but only by 2 points.

You could have a playoff team just using guys whose names end with ___ic!

I just read that Mark Cuban has told the NBA commissioner that the National Anthem would not be played at the Mavericks home games anymore.

https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2021/02/09/dallas-mavericks-stop-playing-national-anthem-before-home-games/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+breitbart+(Breitbart+News)

I saw that and got pissed.
The team I root for the most, and Cuban being a Pittsburgh guy......GD

Take a stand someone, for conservatives all over. You’ll be a hero.

Trying to watch the Mavs on ESPN. I got the dreaded “This content is subject to blackout restrictions in your area.” Wtf, this makes no goddamn sense.
