Ok, like many of you I now follow the NBA more. I mean, I liked it growing up as I grew up outside of Chicago when Jordan was there and that was fun, and then I lived in PDX after college for 13 years so became a Blazers fan and that’s a fun place to watch games. However, now that there are multiple Hoos in the NBA, I find myself rooting for them primarily.
I just don’t understand the G league and also where to get info on how KG and JA are doing, and more recently, LP. Here are my questions, they may have been answered before:
1). How does Justin go from Toronto’s affiliate to the Nets, and then go back to the Toronto affiliate now to be playing for the Nets affiliate? Are there no contracts? Also, he’s clearly better than the G league and he gets like 1-2 chances to play a few minutes and then was waived. I don’t get it.
2). How did LP end up with the Wizards? Again, no contracts?
3). Kyle is with Sacramento, he gets called up and sits and then gets one minute or something. Meanwhile he’s doing really well in the G league. Do NBA coaches not give chances? You would think that a shooter would be helpful when looking down that bench in many situations.
4). This is not G league related but, Ty played before Christmas and had some solid games, now he doesn’t get minutes. Is he injured? Again, why the sudden changes from coaches? I live in Tucson and would love to get up to Phoenix to see him play but don’t know when I should do it.
Thanks for all your help folks, I’d love to get the wisdom of this page to solve some of these questions. Cheers and have a great weekend!
