Fun game. Lauri is a damn stud. Niko needs to be gone on the 15th. And Lopez, Holiday, and anyone else not named Lauri, Kris, or Zach that's got the nerve to try and win games.

Better Lauri nickname: The Finnisher, The Markksman, or they're both dumb?

They're both sort of dumb but I don't hate either. Of the two I like Finnisher better.

I watched a whole Bulls game for a change and I like Dunn's confidence but he needs to understand his limitations as a scorer. It will be interesting to see how he works with Lavine.

I like Dunn but I still think his ceiling is 1st guard off the bench/defensive ace rather than building block starting PG.

If you were watching the Knicks game, it wasn't a great representation of his offensive game. He IS still inconsistent, but he's shown a better outside shot than I'd have thought and his mechanics lend you to believe he can show more consistency going forward too. He's also great at getting to the rim and has been a solid finisher for the most part. His defense is excellent, he does turn it over too much.

That said, I think his upside is an All Star. I don't think he's ever going to be a consistent one or anything, but I do think he'll make one or two.

I thought he needed plenty of time this year, figured we'd need all year to see if he had the ability to be a starting caliber guard on a playoff team. I think he's already proved that he can be THAT. Now, its just seeing how much more than that he'll be.

El oh El.

Are you trying to troll? You normally seem very grounded and I know you're knowledgeable. But, if you admittedly aren't watching a ton of games, what're you basing your opinion on?

Dunn has some extremely nice upside at this stage. He's not a 50% shooter obviously. But, he's shown a better shot than most thought. He's definitely a starter. If you don't think he's got All Star capability, that's one thing. I can understand that. But, to say he's not a starter, from what I can gather is based off a poor shooting game, with you not watching a bunch.....That's much, much harder to understand.....

I watch parts of lots of games but my main point is that there are lots of good PGs with better pedigrees who have all star slots on lock

Lillard hasn’t even made an all star game

Eh, I'm not saying he's a perennial guy or anything. Yeah, you've got Kyrie, Simmons, Wall, Lowry, and Kemba in the East. With no idea of who may be coming up that's 15 years old right now and who may or may not stay healthy or even stay in the East.

I think Dunn can wind up as a guy getting 16-18 PPG, with 5-6 RPG, and 8-10 APG, with good D. The shooting stats conceivably will get better once he isn't the only guy on the floor capable of getting his own shot. Hell, that'll happen once LaVine gets his legs under him, to a small extent, this year even.

Are those numbers All Star worthy? I'd say that on occasion, he's a possibility. Figure he gets in there once or twice, over the next 7-8 years. He's shown a ton more than what anyone thought and I don't think he's done improving at all.

Is he THE guy on the future Bulls contender? No. Is he a glue guy like Rondo, during the KG/Pierce/Allen Celts teams? I say yes.(just not a 4 time All Star, like Rondo was)

Dunn is an interesting player. Seems like non-Bulls fans don’t think much of him while a lot of Bulls fans see All-Star potential. He plays good defense and seems to get where he wants and those aren’t exactly teachable skills. In a league with a lot of star point guards I have no clue how to gauge him but he’s a very interesting player

Damn, a real W. Fun game, Lauri and Dunn looked good, so did LaVine.

Even if they deal Niko quick, I don't see top 6 happening, without help from the lotto. This team isn't half bad and they'll get much better soon.

Time to start paying attention to Jackson and the two Bridges, in the draft.

I mean, good God.....In a year we're doing our damndest to tank.....We're going to wind up getting our asses beat by the Celtics in the playoffs.
