this is great stuff, Eric! lots of fun & insight in under 6 minutes (are shorter videos easier for you to make, because shorter; or harder, on the "short letter harder than a long one" principle?)
some things of note:
* Kuminga not knowing where to be in the action perhaps a clue to his spot in Kerr's doghouse, but he got a nice dunk once he figured it out
* can't tell how much Klay looking out of place in some of the actions is from him messing up vs others throwing off the timing; he had some nice passes out of these tho!
also, "Gaggle" is a fun name
The front office and Kerr are going to have to walk a very, very tight line this season.
