2021.07.23 17:55 FifiiMensah Why do some people randomly cut off people without an explanation?
So recently, a girl who I was good friends with while in high school ghosted me and eventually cut me off for literally no reason. I'm not sure why she did so but I feel like some of it is on me however some of it is on her however I know it's best that she's not worth my time to talk to currently and that I should move on.

2021.07.23 17:55 avantesma [PC][2020s]Rogue-like game in which you walk in circles and build the map.
I saw a gameplay video of this game. I think it's for PC and am pretty sure it's a recent game. I watched this video late last year, at the earliest.
You walk around a circular path and loot cards that let you lay new terrain tiles, equip yourself etc. Each cycle around the path is like a turn, kinda like a board game.
The graphics are retro. It looks like an 80s computer game: black background, solid-colour pixelated assets, no shading.
Didn't save the game's name and now can't remember for the life of me. =\

2021.07.23 17:55 President-Brad Second-Round Series: Jay Huff, Yves Pons, Sandro Mamukelashvili, Luka Garza
We have pretty much reached the end of prospects guaranteed to go in the second round and have now entered the realm of fringe prospects and guys who will likely not hear their names called on draft night. While they likely will not be candidates for the 45th pick, we still have two open two-way contracts and need some guys to fill them (assuming we don't just fill them with Yam and 45). Rather than make posts about each of the remaining prospects, I decided to lump them together in groups of 4. Let me know what you think about these prospects!
If you are interested in seeing the full list of prospect breakdowns with stats and pictures, feel free to check it out here.
Jay Huff Profile: Position: Center
Role: Two-Way Stretch 5
Weight: 240 lbs
- Excellent shooter off the catch. He is a good shooter for any position, let alone a center. He has smooth, consistent mechanics and gets set before the catch. He is particularly effective from the top of the key, which is good for his pick and pop projection. He can hit shots off of movement and even has some upside as a shooter coming off of screens.
- Efficient finisher. He converted on an extremely high number of his attempts on the inside. He is deceptively athletic and is a pretty solid leaper. He jumps up for dunks and alley-oops and is particularly effective at reverse jams. He is an excellent catch-and-finisher and when he cannot finish immediately, he has great footwork in the post and creates open looks.
- Driving upside. Teams respect his shot, which allows him to pump fake and then attack the closeout. He is decently mobile at driving it and while his handle isn’t anywhere near advanced, it is solid enough for straight-line drives.
- Elite rim protector. He has tremendous size and length that allows him to be a prolific shot blocker. He has good instincts on the inside and knows when to rotate to contest the inside. He works well as a drop defender and can cover a lot of ground to contest shots thanks to his length.
- Lacks strength. He isn’t the strongest player despite his size and he struggles when facing stronger opponents in the paint. They are able to displace him with their physicality and score through him.
- Poor perimeter defender. His lateral quickness is pretty bad and opponents are easily able to beat him off the dribble. His defensive prowess greatly diminishes the further away he is from the basket and the number of schemes he will be able to play in is pretty limited.
- Brook Lopez
- Luke Kornet
- Frank Kaminsky
Jay Huff is an interesting prospect in that at 7’1, his most interesting skill is his shooting ability. He projects as a high-level pick and pop threat who is also excellent at scoring on the inside off of lobs and rolls. His rim protection skills are very nice and he is more mobile than his size would maybe indicate.
His weaknesses are that he cannot guard the perimeter, which limits his defensive versatility, and he lacks strength, which diminishes his post defense. He also has problems with consistency; he disappears in some games and comes out in force in others. This could be a result of his archetype, as a player being very dependent on others to create offense for him. He projects well as a rotation big who offers shooting at the 5 but his lack of defensive versatility hard caps his ability to take on a larger role. Yves Pons Profile:
Position: Power Forward
Role: Rim Runner
Weight: 206 lbs Positives:
- Excellent athlete. He is one of the best leapers in the draft and can take off for some truly spectacular dunks. He is a bouncy athlete and plays with a lot of burst on both ends of the court.
- Strong finisher. He can and will dunk over just about everyone things to his incredible explosiveness. When he doesn’t go for the dunk, he uses his long arms to finish around opponents. He is a solid catch-and-finisher, and if the opportunity at the rim isn’t immediately there, he flips into his post game.
- Decent post game. He likes to back opponents down before spinning into a turnaround jumper from the low post. He looks fairly comfortable shooting the close-range jump shot and knocks it down at a pretty solid rate.
- Catch-and-shoot upside. While he didn’t hit 3s at a good clip, the fact that he can take and make 3s is promising. His mechanics are by no means broken, just a little stiff, which can improve with increased comfort levels as a shooter. He looks fairly comfortable shooting mid-range shots off the catch, and he has his close-range turnaround jumper, which indicates that he at least has some shooting touch.
- Elite shot blocker. The combination of having an excellent vertical and long arms enables Pons to be a prolific shot blocker, He is capable of rejecting shots both on the ball on contests and off the ball as a help defender. He averaged a whopping 3.7 blocks per 100 possessions, which is incredibly impressive for a player of only 6’7 height who spent most of his time not at center.
- Solid defender. His athleticism and length allow him to keep up with opponents on the perimeter. He denies driving opportunities with his length and forces jump shots, which he contests with ease. He is an active defender off the ball who makes good rotations and protects the rim as a help defender.
- Poor shooter. While the potential is there for improvement, he is not currently a good shooter and hasn’t been at any point in his college career. His form from the outside is fairly stiff and his mechanics are not always consistent. He is very uncomfortable when shooting off the dribble from deep and does not project to be a creator.
- Not a shot creator. He is not comfortable creating shots off the dribble. His handle isn’t advanced enough to create space and subsequently, a lot of his off-the-dribble shots are contested. His pull-up jumper looks stiff and uncomfortable and he missed
- Limited playmaker. He averaged less than 1 assist per game in college and only averaged 1.1 during his junior year when he averaged almost 34 minutes per game. He is far more of a play finisher than a playmaker and he does not create opportunities for others.
- Derrick Jones Jr.
- Nerlens Noel
- Robert Williams
Yves Pons very nicely fits the classic rim runner NBA archetype. He is a fantastic athlete who can get to the rim and throw it down with force off of catches. He has a go-to post move in his turnaround jumper but aside from that, he isn’t much of a post player. On defense, he is a prolific shot blocker and overall versatile defender capable of guarding all five positions. On paper, he has an excellent skill set for a rim running center.
The only issue with having an excellent skill set for a center is that he is not a center. At 6’7 in shoes, he spent most of his time in college as a forward and he is much too small to be able to play center full time in the NBA, despite his 7’1 wingspan. A skill set composed almost entirely of dunking and defense does not get a player nearly as far as a forward as it does a center. His shooting is a major swing skill for him, as he has shown upside hitting shots from deep but has never seen consistently good results. If he can develop a consistent outside shot, his offensive versatility improves immensely and he can take up more of a 3-and-D role in the NBA. Sandro Mamukelashvili Profile:
Role: Point Center
College: Seton Hall
Weight: 240 lbs Positives:
- Impressive handler. He is incredibly mobile with the ball for a player of his size. He can legitimately act as a lead handler for his team and run various sets as essentially a point guard. He is also a terrific transition player who can go coast to coast.
- Exciting playmaker. He can legitimately run the pick and roll as a handler and create opportunities for others. He is a master of the two-handed overhead pass and can accurately reach teammates on the inside with lob passes or open teammates with skip passes. He does a good job of playmaking from the top of the key where he can scan the court and find openings. He also can create on the move and does a great job of dumping it off to open cutters as he drives to the inside.
- Physical driver. He uses his strength and mobility to navigate defenses and get to the rim. He has a soft touch on the inside and enough burst to get up for powerful finishes. He makes a lot of crafty finishes and is particularly fond of spin moves as he approaches the basket.
- Shooting upside. He has smooth form on his jumper and a quick release. He is comfortable knocking down spot-up 3s from the corners and from above the break. His numbers weren’t spectacular during his senior year but he has shot better in the past.
- Not a good shot creator. He is unable to create any amount of reliable separation off the dribble and is uncomfortable taking mid-range and 3-point pull-ups. When he is on the ball, he is really only a threat to score right at the rim and teams are able to gameplan for him because of that.
- Inconsistent shooter. While he is capable of hitting on catch-and-shoot 3s, he doesn’t convert at a rate high enough to worry opposing teams. He also is not a threat to hit 3s off the dribble so defenders can comfortably go under on screens against him.
- Lacks a defensive position. He is in a somewhat weird defensive spot where he isn’t optimized to defend 4s or 5s. He has poor lateral quickness and gets shredded by perimeter players driving to the rim. He also cannot keep up with shooters as he struggles to navigate through traffic. He also isn’t much of a shot-blocker, nor does he have the interior presence to act as a rim protector.
- Nikola Jokic
- Domantas Sabonis
- Julius Randle
Watching Sandro Mamukelashvili is truly a sight to see. Not many people of his size and build have the same fluid handling ability and creative playmaking that he routinely displays. He is a legitimate point center who can run his team’s offense as a creator for others. He is a physical finisher on the inside and even has some shooting potential.
Mamu has a few major flaws that make it difficult to see what his exact NBA role would be. For starters, he is not a very good shot creator, and when he has the ball, he can only score right at the rim. This makes it incredibly easy for opponents to design schemes to stop him, and it could limit how much of an on-ball role he can actually take on. Additionally, Mamu’s shooting is not quite reliable enough to justify a large off-ball role. On the defensive end of the court, Mamu is a clear liability since he cannot guard the perimeter or the interior. There is no denying how fun Mamu is as a player and he certainly has the offensive talent to find a place in the league, but without a defined offensive role and as a defensive liability, Mamu is a lot of development away from consistent minutes. Luka Garza Profile:
Role: Stretch 5
Weight: 243 lbs Positives:
- Excellent post scorer. Before he even receives the ball, he is jockeying for position against his opponent. He has excellent footwork and is incredibly patient on the inside, waiting for the perfect opportunity to rise up and shoot it. He has a nice hook shot and a decent stationary mid-ranger.
- Shooting potential. He has smooth form from deep and converts at a solid clip from beyond the arc. He gets himself open off of pick-and-pop situations and can knock the shot down.
- Solid rebounder. He uses his strength to carve out space under the rim and rises up to secure boards. He does a good job on the offensive glass and tips in a fair number of misses.
- Slow on his feet. His lateral quickness is abysmal and he gets beaten off the dribble by almost any opponent. He can’t close out on shooters in a timely manner and is constantly stuck between playing opponents tight and allowing an easy drive or sagging off and giving up an easy shot.
- Poor interior defender. He fails to contest shots in any meaningful way on the inside. He is frequently out of rotation and misses easy help reads when opponents are driving. When he actually does make reads, his reaction time is sluggish and he often cannot recover into the play in time to do anything.
- Frank Kaminsky
- Enes Kanter
- Nikola Vucevic
Luka Garza was one of the most productive players in college basketball but his projection as a prospect is hampered by the questions surrounding his fit in the NBA. Outside of his 3-point shot, Garza very much fits the mold of a throwback big. He is a back-to-the-basket, high-volume post player who gets much of his production from banging around down low. Like most traditional bigs, his perimeter skills are limited. His flaws are even more prominent on the defensive end. He lacks any sort of quickness and gets burned on the perimeter. He is also a poor rim protector who does little to no job of deterring opponents on the inside.
The potential saving grace of Garza’s game is his 3-point shot. He shot over 40% from 3 during his senior year and even though it was on low volume, being able to reliably hit shots from the outside goes a long way in regards to offensive utility. With that said, his shot isn’t even close to a guarantee. It will take a lot of physical and skill development for Garza to be able to assume a more useful role in the NBA than his college archetype, and as a 22-year-old project of a prospect, teams may be scared off. With that said, if the right team believes in his ability and helps him develop, he could very well become a rotation big.
