    The guy is rebounding out of his mind.... which is impressive considering his health and Ramadan.

    He wasn't a defensive player when we brought him in. We knew that. He is what he is. I'm not mad at Enes.

    Impressive that he can play as well as he is without any hydration or nutrition throughout the day (or game).

    The premise of this thread is garbage.

    I haven't even bothered to read it.

    Give it a read when you get some time. It's not the headline, but the sidestory that shows how pathetic some people in the world are, in the way they think. Horrible.

    When Enes drops out of playing defense like this, Blazer coaches must respond immediately by substituting Meyers in his place! This video clip is a convincing summary of why Enes (tired, injured, fasting, and standing passively) should have been on the bench. Meyers plays determined hustle defense, sets screens, passes, and scores more points per FGA than any other Blazer. In Game 2, let's play Meyers and win!

    Don't you have a couple other Meyers Leonard threads going? This thread never was, and will never be; about Meyers Leonard. Move along now.....

    Meyers is the Blazer who can be physical enough to handle Green and Bogut and get out there to bother the shot of Steph and Klay, and on offense score swish3s, set screens, and give assists that optimize scoring by Dame, CJ, Rodney, Seth, and others. Meyers together with Zach will provide defensive intensity and consistency that, along with hustle, can beat GSW, especially when used to keep up Blazer energy. Standing around watching, or retreating, like Enes did in Game 1, possibly due to fatigue, injury, or fasting, should not be allowed for even 1 minute against GSW.

    Let's try keeping Blazer hustle level higher than GSW every minute of Game 2 with substitutions that include the Meyers and Zach twin towers, empower Dame, CJ, Rodney, and Seth, bother Steph, Klay, and Green shooting, and beat GSW!!!

    @SlyPokerDog Is there a way we can rename this thread? Calling another human being “garbage” should be taken pretty seriously, and be kept for real human filth...
    Kanter might have holes in his game but saying he’s “garbage” is kind of too far in my book. I realize its not my forum.

    Actually yes. Still seems harsh, but it's definitely better.

    Just IMHO, but he brings up a great point.

    EDIT: And this IS a thread that got started by a now banned poster....
