    I'm flying off the handle? I didn't call people bi-polar and tell them to stop whining and bitching.

    Wrong, his 53.5% TS% is below the league average of 53.8%. And after tonight he'll be below the league average scoring efficiency by +2% or more, just like last year when he was the least efficient 20ppg scorer in the league by TS% and a full 3% below league wide average.

    Wow, I was guessing because I read an article saying he was coming back today..he's not listed. Maybe the other guys are just fearing his return.

    I agree with Nate, LMA is not as good as Tim Duncan. Also Matthews isn't as good as Michael Jordan. Batum... not as good as Pippen. All of our players aren't as good as other players.

    We suck.

    we had a discussion about this a while ago...if (insert your favorite Blazer) averaged 40ppg on 40 shots, would you consider him a scrub or the unanimous MVP?

    He's shot 50% or better only 5 times this season, and he's shooting 44.6% from the field, that is not efficient.

    He's ranked 167th in the NBA among qualified players in TS%. His eFG% if 46 To put that into perspective, the Detriot Pistons are ranked 28 of 30 in team eFG% and they are also at 46%. So his efficiency is equal to one of the least efficient teams in the nba.

    He's worth at least 2 second rounders

    FWIW, I like Dame better than Isiah, Magic, Stockton and CP3.

    Let's look at this then:

    LMA tonight: 16% from the floor

    In those games that you listed for Duncan:

    41% (1 less shot)
    30% (8 less shots)
    33% (6 less shots)
    36% (7 less shots)
    27% (7 less shots)
    8% (6 less shots)
    16% (12 less shots)
    25% (6 less shots)
    33% (3 less shots)

    So if anything, you're proving that when he was shooting really badly, he took quite a few less shots than LA did tonight. The only time he came close to 18 shots was when he shot 41%, which is respectable.

    What the hell is everyone fretting about? Great win with our anchor having perhaps one of his worst shooting nights of his career. Am I missing something?

    No what I've proven is that the coach still rides him.

    That's because you're a homer and don't look at the team with the skeptical, realistic and honest eyes that Nate and I do.
