    Given up...
    Game 1: 42/100, 24/69
    Game 2: 39/89, 17/45
    Game 3: 45/91, 16/41

    Total:
    FG%: 126/280 = 45%
    3FG%: 57/155 = 36.8%
    #made3s/game: 57/3 = 19

    The good news:
    We play an aggressive, helping defense that forces teams to pass a lot.

    The bad news:
    Every team in the modern nba can seem to pass really well... and hit 3s.

    I am surely hoping that they are intentionally playing bad cuz this preseason is a joke. Only ray of sunshine is DSJ. Nurkic turning over like pancakes at IHOP.

    Dear Neil Olshey. It was NOT just the coach. Make the fucking trade.

    Man does he have a reputation with the refs for setting illegal screens. He does commit a lot of them but damn they look like they are dialed in on him. Anything close and that whistle is getting blown. Once you get a reputation for something you are pretty much fucked.

    Pro: Were not getting crushed off of the Pick n Roll

    Con: Were getting crushed off of ball movement

    Issue: Slow rotations to the 3pt line leading to open 3s or overextended closeouts and subsequent breakdowns as well as a lack of proper 2nd and 3rd rotations.

    Chauncey: A guy who will try to fix the issue instead of throwing up his hands and running constant drop scheme.

    Yeah, nothing against Chauncey, I'm sure he's a fine coach. I'll still be pleasantly surprised if he ends up better than Stotts.

    I thought it was culmination of coach, personnel and a douche bag GM. CJ should have been traded 5 years ago

    Don't be that guy.

    Because there could be a time when your love for Melo and Kanter bites you in the ass.

    But I also acknowledge that Melo and Kanter WILL be missed, plain and simple. Say what you want about Kanter, but he would NOT have got dunked on 5 straight trips down the floor by McGee. There would have been some FTs attempted. I was told on here that Melo and Kanter would be replaced “easily”.
