    Majority of the people wants to trade CJ that's included me. But I want to trade for one reason he doesn't fit in Billups mold of player. Billups type player would a hard nose type player especially on defense and nothing against CJ I think he does what he capable of doing as volume shooter. But here the real problem what actually wants to trade for CJ a player volume shooter and below average defender and a big salary on top of things.

    My family just had breakfast with him and his and the rest of the guys. His son was crawling all over him and he had the biggest smile on his face. Dame doesn’t give a shot what anybody on here thinks of him and his game. Too many important things in life going on. HA!

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Dame doesn't give up too many shots, definitely. Never met a shot he didn't like (and, to be fair, hasn't hit at some point or another).

    and we now have better and improving players to be a more diverse offensive team - Norm-Nas-Nurk-Ant can get the job done as was shown last night and in previous games. I was shocked when the game ended when I realized that Nas hardly touched the ball in the second half and he played a lot of that half, he will killing it on drives to the hoop, why not keep giving him some touches and keeping the defense off balance? Really dislike how we go so "guard" centric late in games

    My point exactly. So we're stuck with CJ, so everyone shut up about it. (Except me, when I come up with another genius idea.)

    If Olshey ends up being out, by no means are we stuck with CJ. I don't think we get back a star player for him unless we attach major draft assets and/or another starter quality player but that could be done. I think Philly would let Simmons and filler go for CJ, RoCo and somewhere in between one future first and two swaps and two firsts. The fact is that we as fans don't know who is available in this league but I think a lot of teams including Indy off the top of my head but also other teams, think they can do better with CJ than we have and would send back value for him. I don't think Olshey has ever just had CJ on the trade block (quite the opposite) and I bet if we did that their would be some real bidding for his services, even with his contract.

    DSJ really sucked in this game. So did Zeller and Snell, what little we saw of him. Missing Roco and Ant really hurt.

    Prophecy. When he went back in he was tired, his brain lacked oxygen, and he made a few too many bone head Nurk plays.

    Oh God I wish we could replace CJ in the starting lineup with NAS. Let him be a super sub.

    Reminds me of that time in the playoffs when ball kicker Draymond Green was throwing one of his usual wild tantrums and he hit the ref so hard the ref was bleeding, and Draymond got ejected.

    Wait, am I remembering that right?

    I was thinking before the free throw that if we get a miss and a rebound do not use the time out. Oof

    In that situation is it okay to just bounce the ball off the other player's leg and get another out of bounds? I've never seen anyone do that.

    And push the ball with the other team off balance. I hate giving the other team a chance to talk strategy and set their defense.

    And yet, strangely, he was our best +/- guy, with +10 in 20 mins.
