Remember those great “Scale Contrast” photos from the 2016 Olympics of Simone Biles v Michael Phelps and then Phelps v KD?

Well, now we can add the mind-blowing shots from last night of KD v Wemby. Someone really needs to do a Biles v Wemby photoshoot…

I just watched the Wemby MileHighlights and my gooodness. Spurs just throwing it into the stratosphere above any defenders (while Pop just laughs!) for VW's 8ft wingspan to engulf and throwdown making it look like a parent taking it out against little leaguers. Gonna have to start calling it the Allez-Oop from now on...

Okay the last thing this league outside of the Spurs really needed was an even longer KD that can dominate a game defensively. Shit. We need to start the Jaegar Program to combat this monster

You ever take a position in a rhetorical way and then stick with it out of loyalty to your position, even as other information comes in? I'm debating doing that with the play-in tournament. I think what I'm going to think from the outset is that it's stupid. Then, no matter what happens, I'll stick to my position in an ornery way. If it becomes more and more fun I plan to dig my heels in and pick more and more nits with it. But I haven't decided. Do you think I should go with this plan?

My Scoot for Rookie of the Year prediction looking a bit wobbly

I'm probably overreacting, but getting to the point where I consider the Spurs to be the overwhelming title favorite for the rest of the decade, starting next season once they have loaded up on veteran depth. Maybe even earlier.

What would an effective defensive strategy against Wemby look like?

Wemby currently at 38 points and there is about 1.27 to go - he has arrived big time

I was initially rooting against the Suns, but maybe it wasn’t worth Wemby achieving his First Form

Oh snap that move for 3 by Wemby might be the difference vs the Suns.

Suns are trying to make a comeback. They're shooting 57% and are 14/27 threes.

OT: Looks like another DNP-CD for Wiseman. Currently on track to play 82 minutes this season, and another wasted year.
