    I think he could be a starter if he put time in to work on his handle and ability to create for himself. I could see it.

    I agree though out of our top 3 players CJ is the most expendable.

    I mean, if Trent can be playoffs Version Danny Green, I’ll be a happy camper.

    They do. Rarely do they miss. It's uncanny. I watch other games too, and guys miss plenty of wide opens against other teams. Not Us.

    Not that Gary is going to continue his recent shooting streak (nor am I saying that GRj will be this guy), but could you imagine a time when a player is so specialized from 3, that he ends up shooting like 55% from there on like 150+ makes?

    That'd be insane.

    I’d rather have Dame, Trent and a 3/D wing.

    Better IMO, I think GTJ could be an all star, something that has never happened for Wes. I really think Klay Thompson is his ceiling.

    Collins would probably help the offense more by hanging out by the 3ot line

    Man. The Clippers execute very well out of those double teams.

    Collins should be training with Melo, he needs to learn that jab/pump fake combo that gets fouls.

    I think his ceiling might be a poor mans Klay Thompson.

    My hope in Zach is waning. Dude has bad hands and feet. And he still hacks the shit out of people. If he were a full time C, that's one thing, but in this role, I don't see the fit

    Portland is playing way too casual.

    These two teams don't believe in defense.
