Wizards opened the season with a loss.
Could it be that Wall is still icing Otto Porter, who put up just 7 shots, no 3's, in 33 minutes.
His usage - 11,2%
It will be interesting to monitor that dynamic and stats.
By no means is Porter a star, but IMO he is underutilized.

I feel like Wall is one of the more deluded players in the game regarding his status in the NBA hierarchy. He thinks he is an MJ and acts like he is the MVP.

I like to watch him play, but he often acts like a spoiled brat. He often underperforms in the clutch, alienates teammates and shows no signs of improving on his biggest weaknesses, leadership and outside shooting.

Oh, I almost forgot, he made himself cornrows. By my count, the only player that didn't lower his team chemistry and wore them ever was Kawhi in his earlier days with the Spurs.

Ben Wallace? Rip Hamilton? Ronny Turiaf?
Jeremy Lin? ;)
TP. Good calls.
I was thinking more about the Melos, AI's and DeAngelos Russels of the world.
Those high usage gunners.

Is Josh Hart the best young player on The Lakers? He sure looked like it last night. I'm not sure why he's not in the starting line up.

It's good to see Kelly hitting the game winner as long as it's not against the Celtics. Miami overpaid for Kelly but he can give some good minutes from time to time.

I don't think he's overpaid. A 7-footer who's a good passer, can knock down 3's, and knows where he's supposed to be on defense should be making around $10 mil a year in today's NBA.

I love that Wizards fans are going to start seeing Kelly in their nightmares.

They are giving Kelly 12.5 million this year.

he is not and he doesn't start because KCP is better than him.

Yeah I wish Kelly well when he's not playing us - that Game 7 should have earned him every Cs fan's goodwill - and I think it's hilarious that he took out the Wizards yet again. But I'm also glad we're not paying him Marcus Smart money to be a competent big man who sometimes comes up in big moments.

Olynyk would be a great fit on that Wizards team. I think he'd do a better job for them than Dwight Howard will. Olynyk's high post play (passing and shooting) would really open up the floor for Wall and Beal. Help make the most of their talented guards.

Washington should try and get Olynyk.

Olynyk VS Wizards during his 6 years so far.

1.  Olynyk in his minutes against the Wizards is 21W-4L-2T in 27 career games including
     playoffs.

2.  He has the highest +/- in the league VS Wizards at +198.  Curry is 2nd at +125.  Crowder
     3rd at +98 (Crowder is +99 when playing with Olynyk, -1 when not on the floor with K.O.).

The Wiz should definitely try to trade for K.O. just to end the pain he inflicts upon them.

LeBron lost in his first game as a Laker.

Interestingly enough, LeBron lost his NBA-debut to Sacramento, his first time showcasing his talents for South Beach in Boston, his return to Cleveland against New York, and now his Showtime opening act to Portland.

ah yes because 1 game determines things like who is better.  If that is the case we might as well cut Irving right now after his 2 of 14 performance.
