    I think the whole "I'm taking my talents to South Beach" fiasco left a lot of people with a bad taste in their mouths, and deservedly so at the time. However over the years since then he's matured and I know that my opinion of him has certainly gotten a lot more positive, especially in regards to non-basketball stuff.

    Here's a nice piece about Johnathan I don't think I've seen posted here previously: https://www.nba.com/lakers/news/1810...ance-nba-debut

    He kicked A** out there and even was praised by Bron. Keep it up JW3!

    If Lebron wants him playing up with the big team and on the floor, he'll be playing with the big team and on the floor.

    I think he has been a de facto coach for years. They seem to pair him with burgeoning coaches and I’m guessing it’s for a reason. One of the crazy and impressive things about him as a player is that veterans were deferring to him very early on in his career. If JW3 keeps running the pick and roll with Lebron like I saw him doing it will be hard to keep him off the floor, in my opinion.

    Dissent, insight and contextual discussion makes a website 'sticky' and engaging - not just predictable, safe position fanboyism. Monoculture is uninteresting and lacks intellectual depth.

    Came in earlier tonight and had a couple of short, rough stretches. Still finished with 7/5 with 1 assist in 20 minutes. He did also get 5 fouls!
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Admittedly I don't pay much attention to random young big players coming of the bench, but it seems like this recent swath of Cs and PFs we've sent to the league have been remarkably foul prone. JWIII has 9 fouls in 17 minutes). I seem to remember long stretches of Kelly's rookie year when he was racking up fouls fast as anyone in the league, and Collins always picks up a bunch too. Maybe I'll start looking at some of my favorite non-zag college players a bit more closely and see if this is a Gonzaga specific trend.

    You have to remember in this last game that Walton had just jumped all over his team for lack of defensive intensity. JWIII certainly seems to have taken that into account with his performance. Walton gave him minutes.

    I went to the Lakers game last night. It was fun seeing JWIII in the NBA. It was weird seeing him overlooked completely on offense. He is doing what they want though. He was setting good screens, playing good defense, using up his fouls, and grabbing rebounds in his short time on the court. It was cool seeing him playing with LeBron. I snapped this picture of LeBron taking free throws and JWIII on the block.
