    Ellenson is really not a very good defender. He has a lot of room to improve.

    Kennard is a very good scorer, but of course SL so he doesn't get the ball because everyone else is trying to get theirs. He has set up quite a few baskets for others. There is no selfishness in this guy. Might be a negative because he is a smooth scorer.

    Ellenson's midrange game is pretty to watch. And he plays hard. But he's probably at least 1 more year away from heavy minutes.

    His 3-point shot is pretty good, too. I like when he gets it about 10-12 feet away and does a little 1-foot Dirk fadeaway.

    He did get exposed a couple of times on defense today.

    NO WAY Ellenson can play for the Pistons until his D is 100% on point! They play like they're on a string.

    I hope Kennard isn't getting too used to playing with all the structure and discipline of the SL. It won't be like that once the season starts.

    You could play Ellenson with bad D, but to put him out there with Dre whose D is laughable, then that's asking to be routed before halftime.

    Why pay 1 guy 1.5 million to shoot 3's and be a poor defender when you can pay 2 guys 13-14 million to do the same thing? That's savvy!

    Ernie, your genius is wasted here. You should be working for an NBA franchise.

    Kennard looks awesome today. Ellenson has put up some numbers, but Kennard is the real standout to me. That guy can create with the ball, and is a very smooth scorer.

    We made the championship game tomorrow against Dallas I believe. I think their team is undefeated.

    I admit I do not watch college ball and my bias thought kennard would be a slow and strictly shooter. I was wrong. Dude can create.

    That's 2 years in a row that the Pistons have played in the finals. Van Gundy has quietly been building a dynasty down there.

    That's the playful snark we all love.

    Ellenson hit a lot of threes but he also hit some step backs in the paint and was pretty physical down low. He looks ready for the rotation to me. Today we see who can play under the intense pressure of a championship game.

    Rick Kamla has always been annoying but he is ruining the announcing of this game. Let Air Canada speak. He's actually a player.
