VIDEO of Mullens and Anthony Davis mixing it up a bit and having to be separated....

unfortunately for Mullens, Davis got the best of him after this happened

Kosta Koufos - (Nuggets beat Warriors 107-101)
25 Minutes, 7 Points (3-6 shooting, 1-2 FTs), 7 Rebounds, 5 Blocks

Jared Sullinger - (Celtics beat Bucks 96-92)
7 Minutes, 2 Points (0-0 shooting, 2-2 FTs), 4 Rebounds

Byron Mullens - (Bobcats beat Mavs 101-97)
38 Minutes, 7 Points (3-9 shooting, 1-5 from 3), 14 Rebounds, 1 Assist

Evan Turner - (76ers beat Raptors 93-83)
37 Minutes, 8 Points (2-7 shooting, 0-1 from 3, 4-5 FTs), 12 Rebounds, 4 Assists, 1 Steal, 1 Block

Daequan Cook - (Rockets beat Pistons 96-82)
6 Minutes, 5 Points (2-2 shooting, 1-1 from 3), 1 Rebound, 3 Assists


Mike Conley - DNP



I watched the Bobcats/Mavs game tonight.... It was probably the best game I've seen Mullens play.... sure he's had great scoring nights where his jumper was falling (which wasnt the case tonight), but in those games, he played as a 7 foot shooting guard and cared little about defense or rebounding.....

tonight was different.... his shot wasnt falling so he didnt force it and focused on rebounding and defense.... the effort was fantastic on defense and making sure to box out and rebound, rather than take off up the court (like he often does)....

on the offensive end, he still stood around the perimeter alot (they want to use him as a stretch 4), but instead of jogging back on defense when a shot went up, he was crashing the boards hard and fighting for rebounds.... he only had 3 offensive rebounds in the box score, but he got hands on multiple balls making them 50/50 balls or he tipped them back to the guards..... for the first time in a while, he played like a legit big man in the NBA.....

if he can put this kind of effort in every game with his rebounding and defense, mixed in with this scoring ability, he has the ability to be a solid NBA player..... or, he can go back to being a 7 foot SG who is just a jump shooter and only cares about scoring..... hopefully tonight is a turning point for him

he's really turned into a nice NBA player

he really doesnt have any weaknesses as a player

he runs the team well as a PG, he attacks and scores when he has to, he can beat his man off the dribble and get to the basket, he can shoot the 3, he's a great FT shooter, he is a pest defensively and was 2nd in the NBA in steals last season, and just physically he's worked so hard on his body and is along stronger

if he swapped places with a guy like Brandon Jennings and was able to shoot 20+ times every game and be the main scorer, he would put up all star numbers

first of all imo nba'ers see conley as much better than jennings - 2nd, jennings doesnt put up anywhere near 20 shots a game

finally conley is not missing the all-star game because of jennings, but rather because of rondo and paul and nash and rose and westbrook, etc

he took 17 FGA per game last season.... and that doesnt include the times he draws fouls and gets to shoot FTs.... so yeah, I'd say last season he was close to 20 shot attempts per game

and my point is if Conley always had the ball in his hands and ran the offense and was asking to be more of a scoring PG, he would put up comparable stats to alot of those guys

as far as all stars in the NBA.... 2 years ago in the playoffs, Conley outplayed Tony Parker in the 1st round..... he went toe to toe with Westbrook in the 2nd round

and then last year, Conley was fantastic vs the Clippers vs Chris Paul minus his poor game 7...

those guys may be the best, but Conley always holds his own vs those guys and isnt far behind

RE: Buckeyes In The NBA (2012-13 Season) 


he's taking 14 a game this season (or in your math about 10 a game) - 15/game in his career - he's an excellent foul shooter, so going to the foul line is smart - but i get it, you dont like him - whatever, hard to get too torqued about players on the milwaukee bucks

the rest we agree on, conley's just behind the star pgs in the league

he has a guaranteed contract.... otherwise he may have been waived by the Rockets after the Harden deal

he's definitely a fringe NBA player right now.... he's a 3 point specialist who hasnt exactly been a great 3 point shooter over the past year or so.

It's a shame too, because 2 seasons ago, he was fantastic for the Thunder in the 2nd half of the season and in the playoffs

he's probably gonna have to settle for a 1 year contract somewhere this offseason and potentially fight for a roster spot

Just not a shooter.  #1 skill necessary to thrive in the NBA.  heck, look at mullens!

On a sidenote, Dayton's Brian Roberts made the hornets roster, and has played well the last two games.  nice to see a guy go the Euro route, improve his game, and succeed in the NBA.

Turner doesnt excel in the half court offense

he mostly stands in the corner while Jrue Holiday runs the show

Turner excels when he gets a rebound, pushes it up the court, and then either creates for himself or a teammate

notice games when he doesnt rebound well, he doesnt get a ton of shots or assists.... when he gets alot of rebounds, he gets shots and assists

but bottom line is.... he needs to develop a consistent mid ranger jumper or he'll never reach his potential
