    I think Lillard is doing the Ali Rope-a-dope. He's going to shoot like crap until the playoffs and then watch out!

    SCORCHED EARTH!

    Next time you sit by Dame show him that post just to see how he responds.

    My bet is he will show everyone who’s “Mentally Soft”.

    Unfortunately if we don't have his shooting the fight will get called at the end of the regular season. Better just abandon the rope-a-dope tonight.

    One of a few things:

    *Injury rumor is true

    *Father time has come to collect early

    *Philly is on his mind

    *No real time off due to the Olympics

    Likely the first one. But the last one obviously factors into the first.

    to add to that some of the somewhat out there conspiracy theories

    *New shooter rules have shut him down

    * New Wilson ball has made his shot somehow worse?

    and finally some of the tin foil hat talking dog theories

    * vaccine zapped him of his basketball powers

    * hes tanking his value to get an easier trade out

    * He has completely lost intrest in basketball and just doing it for a paycheck

    Was hoping that Dame's shooting would be on track again after the home game performance against the Clippers, but nope. It's frustrating to see him missing so many shots he'd normally make. But he's getting the same looks, so it's a matter of time before he completely breaks out of this shooting funk.

    I think a “monstars zapped his power since he was in spacejam” theory makes more sense than Dame going 5/20 cause he can’t stop thinking about being in Philadelphia.

    Maybe this Neil/CJ/Dame conspiracy to get Simmons to Portland. See Daryl? You can have the good one! CJ!

    The "I like to make movies in my mind" part of me is kinda wondering if maybe the Blazers and 76ers are waiting until AFTER the Blazers play in Philadelphia...and maybe Dame is holding back due to knowing they're trading CJ eventually.
