25% through the season here is my take

Playing ok at the moment
Just can't finish a game

Last 2 losses really should have been wins

Positives
- Giannis, obviously
- Parker 3 point shooting
- Brogdon very serviceable - hitting 3's (17/24 last 8 games!), not turning it over a bunch
- Managed to trade away MCW for something (see T. Snell below)
- I'd say we won the Beasley for Ennis trade

Negatives
- Why is Jason Terry playing at all? Get Vaughn out there for god sake
- Miles Plumlees contract
- Tony Snells 3 point shooting
- Giannis fouling ++

Any other thoughts so far?

Monroe bitches too much when refs don't call for a foul, even thought most of the time, it isn't there.

Delly has been solid. Not racking up huge numbers, but he isn't expected to.

Constantly running a Beasley/Jabari/Monroe frontcourt off the bench. Jabari being the weak link of that trio defensively is sad. Kidd being a massive fu** head of a coach, not playing small ball, not using Mirza to space for Giannis etc.

Kidd seems to be someone who should sail an inexperienced ship here. But he doesn't have a clue himself, comes across as a w***er too so thats a negative I guess.

Giannis' father just died unexpectedly

Thoughts with the antetokounmpo family.

Let's hope he can channel his grief positively and have his best year yet.

over a year on and stand by this. Is just so limited as a player. And to think the Cavs have signed Rose on 2 mill a year...
The delly, Henson, mirza contracts have hamstrung us so much. All about 10mil a year for very limited production.

Another good start to the year for the Bucks. Aussies not getting much game time. Dellys days look to be numbered and Lopez coming in has seen Thon drop down the order.

When Delly and Thon came in today they showed why they are end of the bench only.

Both hit a three (Delly 2) but Thon is just not coordinated or strong enough and Delly is so slow.

With Henson now hitting 3's at a better clip than thon has ever in his career (will see how long it lasts) there is just no benefit in playing him.

Had the day off so got to watch the game live today, absolutely destroyed Portland. Giannis 1 assist away from a triple double despite sitting out the last quarter.

Big game against the Celtics today who have won their last 6 over us? i think thats right.

We are currently ranked the #1 offence and #5 defence side in the league, only side top 5 in both categories.
