    Dang...that guy is pretty good. Wish we could draft a player like that!

  5. Porzingis is not a big man? He is freaking 7'3 tho.

    1. If you refer to the OP, you will see that I qualified what kind of big man I was going to post ITT. If I were going just post every big man's stat lines in here, I'd be including Ian Mahinmi and Boban Marjanovic, too.
    2. Porzingis, to paraphrase the great American philosopher Bomani Jones, is not "Big Man," he is "Tall Man." Porzingis doesn't play like a big but, more importantly, he doesn't identify himself as a big. This thread is not for just every talented tall dude in the league; that's why Antetokuonmpo, Durant and Nowitzki don't get their stat lines posted in here, either.

    Sorry. Only one top-level big man played last night, and I couldn't be bothered to stay up to watch that game.

    You obviously are underestimating the power of GOAT big man Lil Sabonis and his 12/16/5 night.

    Hassan Whiteside: 13/14/1/1/0 versus Bulls

    Rudy Gobert: 16/10/1/0/3 versus Trailblazers

    I have no philosophical objection to awarding BMOtN to a player on a losing team. But... 8 turnovers, though...

    Man, if New Orleans could just get some productivity out of their backcourt. Like, seriously, any productivity at all. Jrue Holiday had six points tonight. Six. He's the highest paid player on the team!

    Can someone explain how Andre Drummond has managed to double his free throw percentage, without it resulting in a significant increase in his scoring average?

    Improved shot selection.


    Obviously not serious

    That seems like an incomplete answer: his FGA's and overall FG% are right on pace with his career average, and his FTM has almost doubled, but his scoring average is virtually unmoved.

    Ah, so... the dangers of not quoting, in order to get that quick-hit response.

    11/4 Big Man update:

    (BMOtN) Marc Gasol: 21/6/1/0/0 versus Clippers
    Andre Drummond: 16/19/1/3/1 versus Kings
    Karl-Anthony Towns: 31/12/2/0/2 versus Mavericks
    Anthony Davis: 27/16/0/0/3 versus Bulls
    DeMarcus Cousins: 25/11/4/1/1 versus Bulls
    Nikola Jokic: 8/7/3/0/2 versus Warriors

    I'm going to go off-book tonight. I'm normally biased towards the 'counting stats,' but I'm giving BMOtN to Gasol, who is the only top-tier big man who played well against another winning team. Shout out to Cousins, though, who looked like hard-boiled ass for three quarters, before posting 17/7 of his 25/11 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

    Last season we were talking about Jokic being a supercharged version of Brad Miller but throughout most of the season, he just sorta seems like a normal version of Brad to the Bone.

    11/5 Big Man update:

    (BMOtN) Hassan Whiteside: 21/17/1/3/2 versus Clippers
    Nikola Vucevic: 13/10/7/2/0 versus Celtics
    Jonas Valanciunas: 6/3/0/0/0 versus Wizards
    Rudy Gobert: 13/5/1/0/0 versus Rockets
    Dwight Howard: 13/9/1/1/1 versus Timberwolves
    Karl-Anthony Towns: 16/9/2/0/2 versus Hornets

    One game left tonight involving a top big man but, barring otherworldly numbers from Gasol in the second half, I'm going to go ahead and award BMOtN to Whiteside.

    Whiteside was the only top big man playing tonight, and I wasn't staying up to watch that.

    11/7 Big Man update:

    Anthony Davis: 37/14/4/1/2 versus Pacers
    DeMarcus Cousins: 32/13/6/0/2 versus Pacers
    Jonas Valanciunas: 21/10/0/0/0 versus Bulls
    Dwight Howard: 21/9/0/1/1 versus Knicks

    (BMOtN) Nikola Jokic: 41/12/5/2/2 versus Nets
    Rudy Gobert: 16/15/1/2/3 versus Seventy-sixers

    I almost wasn't going to give it to Jokic (I mean, come on... it's the Nets), but 41/12 in a win should get you BMOtN most nights.

    Love seeing the DMC/Brow numbers right next to each other. I really hope those two can keep dragging that team to victory.

    I guess I take back what I said about Jokic just being Brad Miller.

    New Orleans' schedule down the stretch is ****ing ridiculous. They're absolutely going to need their injured guys to come back and step up immediately, for the highest paid player on their team to start earning his money for a change, and they're still going to need a big who can give Davis/Cousins a blow to fall into their laps to have a chance.

    Kosta for New Orleans' 2019 1st rounder. Who says no?
