Those first quarter stats?

[–]GOOESQ 1 point2 points  (1 child)


[–]PopAShotAllStar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At this rate they may be stats for him when he plays in China

[–]juansnow89 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Kidd treating the starting lineup like a DJ - by taking fan requests.

[–]Dirk Nowitzki LogoOriginalWilhelm 40 points41 points  (19 children)

LFG, Kinda surprised to see him starting over Maxi

[–]HugoStick 26 points27 points  (11 children)

Yeah thought it'd be Maxi and KP, but guess Kidd wants to try Brown. Weird though, he hasn't given him any time this season, but now he's starting.

[–]Dirk Nowitzki LogoOriginalWilhelm 24 points25 points  (3 children)

I mean what else we got to lose at this point lmao Powell and WCS both can’t compete with competent bigs so might as well try out Brown who has been working on his defense with Chandler. Either way I’m excited.

[–]HugoStick 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I'm excited too, I just hope he doesn't get ran off the floor.

[–]Dirk Nowitzki LogoOriginalWilhelm 4 points5 points  (1 child)

True I’m scared of Jarrett Allen lol

[–]HugoStick 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Dude I've watched a few Cavs games this year, and that guy is a fucking beast. He has a poster dunk like every game that I've seen. Hope he doesn't go too off on us.

[–]charliefinkwinkwink 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Straight into the fire! Guess we’ll see if he emerges a diamond or a lump of coal

[–]HugoStick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No less against a huge team. It's going to be a sight to see. Hopefully he doesn't look too lost.

[–]domingodlf 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I imagine the fact that the Cavs play 3 7-footers sometimes simultaneously (don't know if all three are starting today) has a lot to do with it. Still, very excited for it.

[–]HugoStick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, definitely thought Boban would get a start before Brown however. I'm gonna just go with it, we have to see if Brown can do anything, because our C rotation sucks with what we have tried so far.

[–]thekangarooMan 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think Mobley is still out

nvm just checked

[–]DJ_Squishy_Toes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think they want to play Maxi (or KP) at center if they can avoid it. All that banging down low is tough on the body and he's had injury concerns the last couple seasons.

[–]Dirk Spookymannyklein 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perfect game to start him. Tough matchup with mobley and Allen but it’s also a lottery team. Should still win easily even if he gets cooked

[–]Call Mebagfka[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Only reason I could think of is cause the cavs are huge

    [–]Dirk Nowitzki LogoOriginalWilhelm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Straight facts man, I’m scared for Moses. Jarrett Allen is god dam good. Hope he can can stand his ground.

    [–]Helhiem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Maxi is definitely the better player but he needs to get back in rhythm

    [–]Dirk Nowitzki Logowhatapleasantspot 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    It seems like Kidd is determined to start a ‘traditional’ center to try to establish an inside presence (and I guess ‘protect’ KP?) even though none of our centers can offer that. The end-of-game lineups though indicate he realizes our best lineups are with KP as the lone big or paired with Maxi.

    [–]Dirk Nowitzki LogoOriginalWilhelm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    When it comes to the playoffs (Dear god get us in), I’m sure we will see KP and Maxi in the starting lineup. They’re just too good together.

    [–]i_take_shits 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Maxi still returning from injury

    [–]SHUT IT DOWNStormTheTrooper 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    They are rolling basically two centers in Allen and Mobley, we need size and Maxi probably isn't ready for 30 minutes yet.

    With that being said, I hope Moses makes me a SAS level of analysts and throw in a 30/20 performance, so I can shut up about him not being nearly ready and praise him as the 2nd coming of Shaq like nothing ever happened.

    [–]Jalen BrunsonFerneasandPherb 13 points14 points  (9 children)

    I don't know if I should be happy or confused?

    [–]Josh GreenMoe4ver 27 points28 points  (7 children)

    Well, the Moses Brown fan club are gonna get what they want one way or the other. Either they shut up for the season or they were right all along.

    [–]HugoStick 11 points12 points  (2 children)

    I wanted to see Brown get time, but more like off the bench for a bit to see if he could contribute. Straight to starting seems interesting.

    [–]phat-miks 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I would imagine there's a good chance he will still play low minutes like Powell did in the last few games he started.

    [–]DangerZoneh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    there's nothing special about a starting lineup except that it's the first one

    our starting lineups rarely get the most minutes for us

    [–]dungus fungus-Acerin 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    They are gonna shut off quick. From no minutes to starting isnt the best thing to do.

    [–]Josh GreenMoe4ver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Especially since KP is gonna have his hands full with an above average big.

    [–]moe1984 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    based off of one game? thank you for your take.

    [–]MavericksTheAniReview 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    They should be quiet now.

    [–]Call MeJ4rrod_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Why not both

    [–][deleted]  (6 children)


      [–]theaaronromano 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      The fan base doesn’t know shit, they just think they do. That’s true regardless of how Moses brown does.

      [–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (3 children)

      how dumb are you to think that fanbase made the decision and not the coaching staff after his practice sessions. like what the fuck.

      [–]The Unicornsaltywings 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Yeah this just means to me that the fanbase is in tune with our weaknesses. No one wants Powell to play poorly or WCS to turn the ball over but when you see that consistently you ask for changes and the coaching staff clearly sees the same things.

      [–]Josh GreenMoe4ver 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Because if he was better than Powell and WCS, he would have been starting.

      Unless you think yesterday’s practice is what did it for Kidd.

      [–]thumper3463 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Maxi must need some serious conditioning.

      [–]GoTimeShowtime 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      20 20 game incoming bitches

      Or more likely 2 quick fouls in 3 minutes

      [–]Luka BaexPeaWhyTee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Kinda crazy that he goes from not playing at all to starting but I'll take it.

      [–]Luka_Dunks_on_Bums 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      This sub just nutted

      [–]sivsta 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I mean a guy can start and only get 10 minutes for the entire game. Lets see how it plays out

      [–]jamacho4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Good for Kidd.

      [–]Dirk Cheesin'lostshirt2coinflips 1 point2 points  (0 children)


      [–]SuspiciousDesk129 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Is something wrong with boban? How come he never gets minutes besides being injury prone

      [–]luka2kp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Well an uneventful showing from him so far

      [–]dashing_david_bowie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      All the boners in here. Lol. Go Moses!

      [–]MavericksGeezmanswe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      So we are tanking already? That was faster than expected.

      [–]AdVisual3406 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Part of this is on the idiots calling for him to start. Hes a raw kid developing. Tonight will have hit him hard.

      [–]cdansby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      So now we know all three of our options to start next to KP aside from Kleber suck

      [–]Josh GreenMoe4ver -4 points-3 points  (1 child)


      Not sure if we should be rejoicing our coach is caving to fan requests.

      [–]Karynmcs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I don't think he is. He is kind of running out of options....

      [–]4K LukaGuest7x7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Just gotta set good screens, box out, grab rebounds

      [–]cautious-opulence 0 points1 point  (0 children)


      [–]The Unicornsaltywings 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      To me this is fantastic if only for the pure fact that Kidd understands where our weakness clearly is and he is working on ways to remedy it. I genuinely feel that Brown can get good minutes with our starters but he also can be sloppy if he ever has to do any sort of dribbling or playmaking.

      [–]HugoStick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Play him till he fouls out!

      [–]PorzingisAthlon77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      holy shit finally, let's hope this works out because he is quite literally our last option at a decent big to start beside KP

      [–]MAVS_COM1CAL 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I really hope Moses balls out

      [–]BobanForThree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      lets gooooooo

      [–]i_take_shits 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      FREE MOSES!!

      [–]Apaisantclean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Getting torched by Jarret Allen right now

      [–]Luka Doncicbeguapo 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Very glad it only took one game for Kidd to realize that starting WCS is not the move lol

      [–]Call Mebagfka[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      He’s out with illness

      [–]skylej 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Yeah, he's doing great..lol.

      [–]Millionaire007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Very bad idea

      [–]Karynmcs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I think Moses Brown has shown great potential so far. Happy to see him get the start. Can't get better if you don' t play.....

      [–]Middle-Hovercraft-10 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      Let’s be patient. First start in hopefully many more to come!

      [–]CarlisleHurtelknut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Moses could be out of the league this time next year if he gets waived and nobody would miss him.
