The only thing I'm disappointed in is the result. There won't be too many nights where the entire team is that ice cold shooting. There was some poor shot selection in the first half but just about everyone was just plain OFF. The foul differential in comparison to shots attempted was disgusting. Th...

With that said, there's a 0% chance that some negative feedback on here will result in design changes.
