I actually don't mind them surrounding the young guys with young NBA vets. It takes the pressure off RJ, DSJ & Knox if they're not being relied upon to carry a franchise.Randle I can accept if paired with someone like Dlo or the like.
For the life of me I cannot understand what RJ is going to get out of losing alongside talent like Portis & Bullock. Either shop to win or teach your young talent with top talent rather than improving by 10 wins & having RJ learn **** all off mediocre talent while basically losing anyway.

He'll be a star. It's just where is the issue.Expecting so much from our young players/pick in my opinion has stunted their growth over the last few years & we need to experiment with other ways to integrate them into a successful NBA system. We desperately need RJ to turn into a star because we need a player that attracts other free agents. KP was that player but obviously didn't work out because he's a diva.
I hope you’re right & luckily we have the 4 years on his rookie contract to make it happen.He'll be a star. It's just where is the issue.
We're on the clock & have 2 years to get competitive or get a decent FA signing, because he's a winner and he won't put up with mediocrity forever.
I can't see this group taking us very far but at least we won't be pushovers for the first time in years. It'll be nice to actually root for a team that's trying to get a few wins.take this haters..........
After watching some espn this morning the main thing i got out of it is that the Nets attracted quality FA's is because of their culture and they showed they tried to win.I can't see this group taking us very far but at least we won't be pushovers for the first time in years.

Yep agreed. Building a competitive culture will no doubt help with the development of our young players. We really need a couple of them to turn into elite players, I'd say RJ & Robinson the most likely.After watching some espn this morning the main thing i got out of it is that the Nets attracted quality FA's is because of their culture and they showed they tried to win.
Obviously we were tanking for Zion and that backfired in more than 1 way no in hindsight..
I think if we can have 2 winning seasons under Fiz this year and next we will get someone in FA soon.
I think the best we can hope for in Knox is a solid 3&D wing but he needs to get stronger & a more reliable shot. He also needs to play within his abilities & stop jacking up long range 2 pointers.What are your thoughts on DSJ and Knox?
I disagree. Haha.It will definitely help DSJ to have a few solid teammates to play with, bigs in particular.
I think Portis & Randle offer more spacing than what he played with last year. Gibson to a lesser degree as well.I disagree. Haha.
DSJ needs spacing to be able to exploit his explosiveness as he's a score first guard. Gibson, Randle & Mitch Rob don't really help the team's spacing much.
I look forward to seeing the connection that Payton & Mitch Rob develop.
