Which NBA draft prospect’s NBA comp for himself is Nikola Jokic with “more bounce?”
Who compared himself to Tyus Jones?
Who used Bobby Portis and P.J. Tucker?

Tim Connelly will likely sign five different players to max contracts in a six-year span. That has to be a record.
– 2018 Nikola Jokic ($148M)
– 2019 Jamal Murray ($170M)
– 2021 Michael Porter Jr. ($207M)
– 2022 Karl-Anthony Towns ($211M)
– 2023 Anthony Edwards (?) – 9:29 PM

No real surprises for All-NBA teams. Joker had 88 first team votes and 12 second team votes, assumably as the second team center behind Joel Embiid.
I wonder how many first team forward votes Embiid and Joker each received. – 8:33 PM

After battling Jokic, Draymond Green said he’s in the best mental space of his life and at the peak of his defensive powers. Now he’s 1 win away from the Finals: “If I can make this team that much better, then who’s going to beat us? That’s how I feel.” espn.com/nba/story/_/id… – 3:37 PM

The Nuggets are betting Jokic’s prime that Connelly was not the guy to finish this iteration of the roster & get them a ring.
Maybe they’re right. But don’t try to sell me on “we did everything we could” because that certainly doesn’t show if the solution is just subtracting TC – 4:42 PM
