Re: Kristaps Porzingis Summer League Evaluation

It almost reads as if you wish to remove some level of culpability from the players themselves for ensuring their own progress & development.

I did.... with the benefit of hindsight

I do. Not all, or even most... but some... yes. I think the bad organizations don't get nearly the blame they should for squandering talent.

Re: Kristaps Porzingis Summer League Evaluation

for the most part the only top pick I blame on the organization was Kwame brown , Jordan ruined his development ...when I saw him in summer league after he got drafted and he was pretty good ...but they killed his confidence and with that his game.

most of the time especially with the dleague available I put the onus on the player
