    We just need to all accept that we are not a good team this year. Another year wasted for Dame

    Sadly, probably perfectly fine for CJ as well.

    Maybe you should do few days without burbon;)

    Yeah, CJ doesn't know NBA basketball. He should hire OneSport3 from the RipCityTwo Forum to teach him.

    Did Melo ever have as many assists for us as CJ had tonight?

    And I'm laughing my ass off at the thought of "tweeting CJ" to tell him how to play.

    CJ played horribly tonight, but the "CJs a cancer" and "trading him would be addition by subtraction" shit is so fucking ridiculous.

    CJ could have 8 assists per game if he wanted. He is in love with shooting. Just like Melo.
    I never said he is bad, he is great bballer and I admire his handling skills. He is a killer. But he is not team player and team is what we need here.

    All I know is the Blazers have blown out 5 of last year’s WC playoff teams. Utah and Dallas are the only ones left. We get Utah on Monday.

    So because he doesn't get 8 assists a game he's Melo.

    Just because he's an aggressive scorer doesn't mean he doesn't want to pass or isn't a team player. Dude's averaged 4.4 to 4.7 apg as a SG the last 3 years but because it's not 8 he's selfish. That's so crazy to me.

    Huh? What does me having a Postgame Show have to do with tweeting AT CJ telling him how to play?

    Just raw numbers don't say the whole truth though. And i'm not saying he is selfish, but I believe he gets sucked in the moment and at times has tunnel vision. I don't think he is doing it because he cares more about his numbers than team wins, but he is often a ball stopper on offense. Not same level like Melo was, but he is one. I don't believe we ll ever have the ball movement we want if the ball passes through his hands and to me it's crazy we have Powell shooting the ball at 50% and he can never get the same amount of shots like the other two guards.


    By the way Lillard has already matched CJ's TS% for the year. I never saw that coming with how bad Dame has shot the ball so far. That shows that CJ has been struggling a big amount as well.

    I said "turning into" not "you are". Surely, you know the difference.

    Talking two hours about what was good and was wrong in the game, talking about coaching decisions, players, plays... I mean, who do you talkin to then?

    It all good, btw. I like your show and I think Billups should tweet CJ, not you;)

    Their play on the road is nothing like years passed either... much worse. They were 7-3 because of home games and one against the hapless Rockets.

    But they go on the road and are pathetic against a bad Kings team missing 3 of their starters by games end.

    It's only November and already we can not win the season series with the Kings.

    ... but at least MeJ got his 20 shots up.

    We have 19 games to judge Billups on.
    We have 547 games to judge CJ on.

    Just a little bit different.

    CJ is not a young guy still finding his way. He is a vet and by all accounts is a bright guy. Anybody can have a bad game, but his seeming lack of self awarness is disturbing.

    ME-J’s game is based around his ability to create his own shot. He’s an absolutely fantastic shot creator. The issue, of course, is that our new coach is trying to help our team become more diverse on offense by moving the ball and in turn become a tad more difficult to guard come playoff time.

    So until C-Chuck decides he wants to part of the future and not the past, this team is going to struggle
