I tried to pump KD up by making him my man crush but its not working so far :( 

How that guy can keep jacking up guarded 3s from 4 feet behind the line while making about .05% of them.....wish i had that confidence in my day to day life lol

Think it crossed the line from confidence to delusion a while ago. Delusion can often sum up how KD plays at times. He's delusional to think the best shot on the court is to WAIT for the defender to get into a decent guarding position, then ISO him and jack up a contested 3 and think he will make them with ANY regularity. He's delusional to think driving the lane out of control against 2 literal 7 foot trees and jack up a circus shot while purposefully drawing contact is a great offensive possession. He's delusional to think that after making a good play and getting excited, it's smart to get called for a ridiculous reach in foul at half court and break up Auburn's momentum. And he's delusional thinking that his constant complaining and mouthing off to the refs isn't going to hurt Auburn. I see him do it most games, and he finally got called for a technical this time. We can't afford that against better opponents.

He brings energy, I get it. I'm not even saying he shouldn't play (although I would be ok if he didn't). But I've seen enough KD over the years to know what to expect. He needs to be used as a defensive specialist and his minutes need to reflect that. We have better options on offense.

Shot hasn’t been falling. Made some good passes though!

VT's PGs were meeting him just past the logo. Aden will have to get used to that. I suspect that we will take advantage of the extra space with our other players.

Our crowd seems particularly relentless with that chant. I remember a game last year where a guy had one early in the game and heard about it the entire rest of the game. He came out after the half probably thinking people had forgotten..

That's awesome! LOL.

Their coach mentioned the crowd during the post-game interview. He seemed impressed. BTW, he seemed like a really good guy to play for.

Might have to catch the next game since we prioritizing defense. Love me some good defensive play. 

lol bro why aren’t you already watching our boys!?  🥺😔☹️It’s college basketball though. A lot of “good defenses” is just the product of playing vs bad offenses or 3 point challenged shooting teams.

Last night's game brings to mind a major league pitcher, who despite not having his best stuff, still goes 6 innings and gets the win. And next time out, his pitches may be electric
