    There would have to be a real God for that to happen... So we're good.

    He literally decided to kill all the humans and the other animals because people were going through the back door. Guy is insane.

    Then him having a vendetta against Job, sticking a dude in a whale, ordering a dude to kill his son...

    Wild ride.

    Actually really well said. The one thing Mitchell has had from the beginning that shows no sign of changing is the drive. High motor, high desire to improve, confidence through the roof. Man did we get lucky on that one.

    I think you are remembering his first 5 games, not his first 10.

    He averaged 20 ppg in games 6-10.

    And for a rookies to suck his first 5 games should be completely expected.

    People judged based on the ball going in or out... he was getting where he wanted and doing things but you could tell he didn’t quite know what to do. He improved quicker than anyone could have predicted.

    It’s the same **** I’ve been saying on Grayson Allen. The ball wasn’t going in but he was getting places and you watch him the last few games (albeit against **** defense) and he was so much more comfortable working in the space he was creating... and the ball started falling. I don’t think he is half the player DM is and the defense is a problem but it’s something to remember... can’t just judge on box scores. It’s about seeing what they have and what is fixable. It’s more about the process than the result for me.

    Also don’t doubt the churro.

    Wrong.

    I just looked it up. He averaged 13.5 points his first 10 games. He had some nice scoring games, but had 3 games of scoring 2 points and 5 games of scoring 10 or less.


    Facts > your memory

    I just saw you said 6 -10. Not first 10.

    I said first 10, but either way.

    His percentages were awful... but you could see that he had ability... he got so good so fast people forgot the early struggles.

    28 +25 + 22 + 17 + 8 = 100

    100/5 = 20 points per game.

    Math is a thing.

    First 5 games = 19/10/2/2/2 = 35
    35/5 = 7 ppg

    Have some crow.

    Like I said, I thought you said first 10 games he averaged 20. I didn't realize you specified 6-10.

    My point still stands.

    I had some mini churros, but I ordered 4 instead of just 2.
    My work here is done.


    But if we win, I'll make sure it becomes a pre-game ritual for the rest of the playoffs.

    Seems fair or am I missing something?

    If you shoot bad, and people acknowledge you don't normally shoot bad, you still shot bad.

    Don't read into it more than that.
