He has one: Zach "No Weaknesses" Collins.
How about Zach FUCKING Collins
Was that directed at Ferguson? I thought it was for the lack of help defense. I kinda feel bad for George there. He looks so frustrated.
Rice taking a shot at management. Who is he talking about? Does he think management wants him to play Leonard over Davis? Noah over Collins? Harkless over ET? Those are the only ones who have lost minutes. Everyone on the team is a N.O guy.........
What stotts has done this yr to make this team better he plays the guys who know how to play & know his system. He doesn't play who management wants,he has players who fit a system.napier, pat, Collins Davis,it's a team
Idk, Olshey was pretty whatever about Meyers in his training camp interview. That’s saying something because he tries to sell everything.
Man Zach is going to be something else when he reaches adulthood.
I don't know. When it comes to hate, no one could ever top the Lakers. Even when they are terrible.
I wonder why we have all these "trade CJ!!!" threads and posts but after wins over SAS and OKC i don't see the other side of that stupid coin i.e. threads titled : "Trade Lillard because we don't need him!!!".
I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that Damian is more important to the team than CJ is and fans know it.
I think it's because the perception is that Damian's production has been on par with his career, whereas CJ hasn't performed up to what he did the last 2 years (in some ways he has regressed). I think most would agree that it is due to the makeup to the team (easier to concentrate defenses on CJ due to lack of scoring threats from the SF/PF spot) more so than CJ being content with his huge contract now kicking in this season.
(tho stats don't back that up necessarily)
Lillard's value on the trade market is also pretty high though ,so trading him makes sense as much as trading CJ makes sense.
I'm just sick of the scapegoating of CJ i guess...
It'd be easier to replace what CJ brings than what Damian brings.
Why don’t we NOT replace either one of them and just be happy with what we have?
That's one thing that surprised me about last night. I thought Russ let down; he was not going ballsout the whole game like he usually does. I wonder why.
We should not trade CJ or Dame. They are great players. It would be like the Wiz trading Wall or Beal. Dumb.
No it's not. Think about all the teams we faced this year, how often do you see opponent players pull buckets out of their ass like CJ does? It's not that easy to find really good scorers who can handle the ball like he does.
And besides, why not look at the bottom line instead of comparing skills all the time? we seem to be a .500 team with Lillard or without him, why not get a big star for Lillard, a star who would get us over the hump?
(If i wasn't obvious enough, i don't want to see Lillard or CJ gone.)
That's what I've been saying all along, they are our only relative advantage over so many other teams in the league.
Trading both of them and rebuilding is a different subject though.
The reason why I say that we could replace CJ easier is that he's a short, defensively limited SG who doesn't really take over the games like Damian does.
Most SG's, I would bet, are 3-4 inches taller than CJ is. He doesn't have the poise that Damian has, nor the leadership skills that Damian has. There's a reason why he's the one that fans know and the league itself talks about.
they wouldn't get an equal star for Damian, so CJ + replacement players aren't going to get them anywhere close to the hump.
It's like he suddenly realized he's probably not going to average a triple double and has no chance to win the MVP, so why bother trying?
Cheer up Russ. You just need to focus on other goals. Barring injury, you are a lock to lead the league in missed field goals for the 4th time, and you have a very realistic shot at leading the league in turnovers for the third time. You still have a lot to play for. You just need to keep playing your game and not worry about your teammates or winning. Just go out there and do what you do. Everything will be fine.
Which, I have to admit, is impressive being on a team with Melo.
