    Tell me more about this. The same ankle injury as before, or something hip-related as fantasy twitter told me?

    Seems like something that should have been diagnosed a while ago, given that we could all see that he couldn’t shoot.

    It's pretty rare but is very painful and is extremely difficult to diagnose. Have a family friend that had an elbow and shoulder surgery that is a current collegiate pitcher. Continued to have the same symptoms post surgery after the elbow/shoulder and finally went to see a specialist in STL. He was diagnosed with TOS and had a very lengthy surgery a few weeks ago and had one of his ribs removed to correct the nerve impingement. He's still recovering but is doing somewhat better.

    I am not a doctor but I did talk to one about this and another person who had that injury and both said it should not affect muscle memory.

    It could be a numb pain and affect performance like a pitcher losing velocity but double clutching free throws and air balling wide open shots it should not cause.

    Just spitballing here but possible he adjusted initially because it was painful, thus cascading which means it could have indirectly caused the slop we see. Happens all the time with pitchers.

    Not trying to homer it up, I realize this is a lost cause at this point.

    Pretty amazing that the Mavs have fleeced two franchises to get two of the greatest European players of all-time in Dirk and Luka. Yes, Luka is already at that level at only 19, don't @ me. At least Dirk was still risky because his German pro career was nearly entirely at a second-level league in Germany with a small sample of brilliance in the Nike Hoops Summit, no excuses with the Hawks and Luka though given he was playing in one of the top leagues in the world and dominated in high-level international competitions like Eurobasket and Euroleague.

    Two things:

    1. Switch it over to the national game and hear the terrific Doris Burke call a great game.

    2. Please play like this on Christmas Day while I’m in the house.

    Doris Burke is great but the nets have the best announcing team in the NBA. Allen Crabbe has been on fire from 3 and Ian Eagle has spent the last 3 minutes begging Richard Jefferson to not make dirty crabbe jokes.

    He's taking 5 3s a game while shooting 22 percent from 3. Someone should probably tell him to stop shooting 3s.
